Re: Garden Log

Some Wine Caps from the patch inoculated last year in the garden. The patch keeps on giving, we must have harvested about 20 mushrooms now. https://i.ibb.co/jv21F6m/Wine-caps.jpg https://i.ibb.co/106GXJ3/IMG-2216.jpg Thank you @sky for recommending the free Cornell Small Farms courses last year in t...

Foraging Log

These are the Dryad's Saddles / Pheasant's Backs I have been writing about in my journal not long ago. This is how it looks like in the wild https://i.ibb.co/R6LnvZz/Dryad-s-Saddle.jpg https://i.ibb.co/x8tbvS3/Dryad-s-Saddle3.jpg This is how it looks like harvested https://i.ibb.co/WKrSTYB/Dryad-s-S...

Re: guitar player's journal

Late mid-month update: I has been two weeks on my unpaid leave now, I've got two more weeks. I spent time doing a few things. I am reading Holmgren's Permaculture: Principles and pathways beyond sustainability now. I did some major weeding on our patch in the walled garden, which makes me think, aga...

Re: tooth filling - amalgam vs porcelain/white/composite

Thanks for your perspectives! I think I will go for a white composite. Sadly, the National Health Service in the UK only does the silver ones on back teeth, so I will need to go through the hassle of finding a private provider. In the UK it is actually quite a bit more, on the Internet I read £100 f...

tooth filling - amalgam vs porcelain/white/composite

In the past I had a porcelain/white/composite filling done on my lower right 5th tooth, and all was fine but then it chipped something like 1,5 years later. I am now looking into fixing/replacing it, and while doing so I read about pros and cons of amalgam/silver/metal vs porcelain/white/composite. ...

Re: A Jacob Mention

Those of us who were already doing it and discovered that Jacob's philosophizing fit with our experiences are less enthusiastic about more (WL, MB) philosophies. Yes? No? Maybe moderately correlated? I would place myself in the latter group but still enjoy reading about the WL developments for exam...

Re: A Jacob Mention

For frameworks to stand they must stand for or with something that persist through counter-movements in the social sphere of influence. Else, the very structures underlying the fabric of our society unravel. And then Carse would say that we play in the cultural rather than social realm which is act...

Re: bivvy bag

Thanks all, this is all really useful. @Ego, yes it seems to me more and more that a bivvy is not for DW and I, either a tent which we are very happy sharing or sleep under the open sky. Tom travels very currently in the Caucasus, walking the 500miles+ hiking trial through Armenia that he has design...

Re: bivvy bag

Ah now I get what you mean, just a mattress and a sleeping bag! Strangely, I never thought about it because I thought dew would soak the sleeping bag big time and unfortunately I only have the down one. So when you sleep without a tent, do you have anything to put under the mattress? I might give it...

Re: bivvy bag

Hmm I see. My idea was to do wild camping and the appeal of a bivvy bag would be that the bivvy bag based sleeping system can be set up and rolled up in maybe 5 min vs 30/40min of unpacking/packing a tent. This would earn about an hour of time for other activities, for example having a 1h break in t...

bivvy bag

Hi outdoor enthusiasts, a question to you about bivvy bags. I read on my favourite Tom's Bike Trip that he uses Alpkit Hunka which accidentally was featured in a Guardian article today . New ones are £49.99/70$ and I found used ones on eBay for not less than £40.00/56$ which is a good sign. However,...

Re: Bodyweight exercises

yup, simple is always preferable for me also. In practice that system is pretty simple, but now that I think about it since it can get pretty intense rather quickly, maybe it is better to keep it for later. But really, it only requires a timer and most importantly for me there is no need to write th...

Re: Bodyweight exercises

@chenda, a shame that burpees are to complex as they seem to involve most of the muscles and be a pretty complete body movement. I have been doing them for more than 1.5 years and the effects are great. In any case, I think that what @jacob wrote in the book about pacing exercise progression is just...

Re: guitar player's journal

Cool, I have some vouchers from work and didn't know what to do with them until I found out they work with one bike store so might just get the tire liners and a few other things. Yes I know, there has to be a good environment with many variables in the right spot for mushrooms to fruit. I took a co...

Re: guitar player's journal

Thanks basuragomi, never thought of this but of course such product must have existed. Is this a stick-on or possible to more from one tire to another? Will be soon changing tires anyway as these are quite worn off being 4+ years old so might get it for the new ones. Coincidental update : We finally...
