    Crossing the Beluga slew a bit past sunrise this morning. On left side is the lake where float planes land during the summer.

    I bought these Prime Cut ribeye steaks and we had them for dinner tonight.

    They were amazing. So succulent and tender.

    This is someone's home on Homer Spit. They've lived here with their several children for few decades. City was trying to force them to clean their place up and get rid of the dilapidated, rotten boats. Lot of people were on the landowner's side. I think it's kind of a landmark and a tourist attraction. Lot of people enjoy seeing this.

    Is the owner's name Popeye or Olive Oil? Some neat boats & an interesting bus.

    30+ years ago, Vermont required all junk yards to be fenced. Most put up long stretches of galvanized steel - kinda metal roofing in appearance. I'd hugely rather see the junk cars.

    Ha! My buddy did that. He has a few older cars, not a junkyard, but more than three. He lives in the city proper, and they said no. He fenced his 3 acre lot with that galvanized roof turned sideways, just as you describe.

    It lasted two weeks before it became the roof of a new lean-to type shack/shop. That metal is ugly, boy!

    Peace,

    I saw the episode of Deadliest Catch where the Time Bandit was fitted with the bulbous bow. I'd love to find out what effect it had on the ship's fuel consumption.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    You know the Hillstrands, Spin? Too cool. I suppose I could have asked the question to them via the TV show's website, but I felt that doing so via that format would look a bit, I don't know, a bit like I was challenging them because of what I do for a living.

    It reduced fuel consumption. Increased speed. Increased overall efficiency of the boat. They also had tunnels installed to increase the water passing by the prop, which also increased fuel efficiency.

    Thanks, Spin. I pretty much knew that those modifications would have those effects, but it is nice to hear it from someone who has first-hand 'before and after' experiences. The boat geek in me wants to dig down into this exhaustively for hard data & other stuff, but this is not the place or time. I appreciate your going to bat for me.

    This moose caused my heart break yesterday by eating my five precious aronia bushes, all my lilacs, and my mountain ash. I chased it out of the yard by yelling at it while banging a couple of cooking pots together. Here it's going by the burn barrel.




    Footprint.

    Less inhabited places preferred. Sorry to hear about the deer problem. Try PlantSkyd spray. It keeps them away for about three months depending on weather.

    That just feels nippy - even though I'm guessing the temp had to be a little above freezing & then dip below to get frost like that?
