well - 2016 started out by going 100% linux and no mac for backup support. started with bodhi on 12/24/15. So far love it but wish i had more time to read all the stuff i needed to to learn more about bash and terminal and gnu/linux as such. getting old and 28 years of crippledness and chronic pain which has gotten so much worse - has not been kind. also lost 4 big pieces of equipment for for 4-8 weeks and running a small homestead/farm/vineyard and 100 plus ton of firewood left to cut and split and stack by hand from 200 plus ton has been a challenge. the worse rain since i have been here in 1993 and then intense heat and humidity has been one BEAR! damn - you change your clothes 5-6 times from 5 am to 11 am or noon. heat stroke and done for the day.
harvest for food has been ehhhh. and wine harvest and making has been cut to 1/4. so ----- damn....
figs were delicious. eggs have been happening. some interesting jams and butter, pasta sauce and marinara have been delectable. homemade breads every day or two. some apple and other types of pies too were nice.
lost some vines and also some berries and strawberries are being rejuvinated.
trying to tons of catch up work - dead trees to get down and bucked up and chipped up.
backtrack - chipper was down and lost a tiller and my garden tractor was out for 2 months and even my farm tractor was out - and that was my backup due to a front wheel seal 4 wheel drive leak - had to push a hand mower around 1 acre many days a week for almost 2 months and my garden therefore also went to sh!t.
hoping i can get the shed sorted out and cleaned and get the espaliered fruit nets off and away and prune up all of the tress plus the many down trees from lightning that have to be bucked and chipped.
decided to try to redo my entire garden area.
hope your year was better than mine.
old age and health issues really do take their toll.
Thank Buddha Bodhi is still running smooth!
