Scored another brand new Estwing hatchet with leather grip. Smaller than my other Estwing but great for kindling. Customer brought it back to the hardware store because it was "too heavy" and they can't sell used items (company policy) so my wife brought it home.

Sadly, the last 2 years we didn't make any wine.
Simply because we ran out of space to store it, without building more root cellar type storage space.

To store wine well, you need real consistent cool temperature ranges, which a root cellar provides.

We have around 600 gallons stored mostly in 65 gallon oak barrels aging.

Our BOL vineyard will produce enough grapes to make around 50 gallons of wine annually.

Next year, I intend to distill a LOT of brandy.

Assuming you are using a percolator type coffee pot.

You can usually find metal mesh basket type coffee filters at thrift stores for 99 cents.
Or, new ones at Walmart for around $6.

Simple to drill a tight fitting hole through the center of the basket, that fits your percolator stem.

Then there is no need for PAPER coffee filters.
Simply store it inside your percolator.

I made a couple for every coffee percolator our BOL family group has.

I attended an IDPA competition, watched some great shooters. Some LEO, some Military and some civilian.
There were folks from all over the USofA, China, Finland and Germany competing. It we a really great experience, I may have found a new, yet expensive, hobby.

That is one of the best ideas I have seen in a very long time. I use those style percolators a lot and up to now thanks to you won't have to put up with the grounds in my coffee and can use a much finer grind of coffee when I'm out on the trails. Thanks for the great idea

Our female GREAT DAME, thinks this rescued kitten is her puppy.
Very protective of the kitten.
Will even pick the kitten up & gently carry it in her mouth.

82 was the high here today. Morning low was 45. Better than Monday, though...started out at 37 - I know, because I was out feeding animals and milking the goat.

After doing the post-work afternoon feeding/milking/egg gathering, took the truck to the feed store and picked up 8 bales of hay...tomorrow afternoon we'll unload and stack it in the feed room (except for the couple of bales that will go out to where the male goats are.)

It was in the low 60s most of today. Beautiful blue skies. Come about 1530 and the darkness started to roll in and the wind picked up. Got he and the wind was blasting and temps started dropping. It's down to about 33* and a nearly non-existent sleet/rain lightly coming down. It'll be interesting to see what comes tonight and how it is getting to work tomorrow. Wish I had put a new back window in the wagoneer... Gonna be kinda brisk.
