farm life

12 April 2017 - 06:24 PM

well - i still have not had the time to explore and get my chops around linux and bodhi and also many of the apps i need to use.  just been exhausted trying to get all that it takes to get my small homestead and vineyard going.  redid my entire garden for about 6 months and still tweaking.  espaliered fruit trees are tedious.


already harvesting stuff and strawberries in maybe 3 weeks.  have to redo maybe 25 vines. so that is a bitch.  less harvest one more year at least.  last year's wines just knock me out and am struggling to hold on to some for aging....   WOW!!!!


major dent after 2-3 years in my 2500 plus tons of firewood.  woodstove is so sweet ...


sitting in my kitchen and a stove going with a single malt glenfiddich or a bottle of my wine or bought pinot noir just makes the day and life stellar.


planted hundreds of evergreens that surround my property that really makes this place a secret hideaway.


people drive  by and do not even know i am here and even my clients or esp my relatives drive right buy and say - where the hell is he????


chickens laying nicely too.


potatoes up = and garlic ready to pick under 1 1/2 month.  


275 garlic, 78 potatoes, 375 onions, and figs are popping too.


welcome zen farm/ skeldale farm and gray wizard vineyard/winery.


also maybe 12 different rare japanese maples most are dissectum.


Have good year!!!!

android devices - lack of security

06 April 2017 - 02:19 PM

i am very curious - why all of the negative security aspects on android/linux smartphones.  i am constantly seeing stuff about major hackability etc.  anyone have any concrete reasons as to why they are so sketchy to own.

most magical of pinot noirs

26 February 2017 - 06:00 PM

well - wanted to say that this past year i had a bottled of Sean Thackrey's Andromeda pinot noir.  Wow - it was the finest pinot i have ever had and also pretty much the finest bottle of wine i have had.  it is available exclusively from sean thackrey.  He is rated as on of the top 3 winemakers in North America.  Pricey but damn it is so nice and most unique of all pinot's ever tasted.  And i am a pinot head.


anyway - i received a birthday gift from my adopted sister and old friend last Nov. i laid down and today after a lot of work all A.M. in the garden here.  I came in to warm up and have a taste and opened this bottle of 2013 Edict. pinot noir from anderson valley - pricey too but man this is incredible.  tasting it as i am typing this i thought i ought to post this off topic thread.  


my vineyard buds are just popping ad fruit is popping and just planted 400 onions today and 18 raspberries.


anyway - i do not endorse too many wines but these 2 are so delightful!  even sensuous!!!!  i hope to be able to afford a couple or few bottles of sean's this year; but things have been very bad the last year!



rendering errors

25 January 2017 - 06:30 PM

once in a while i get rendering errors.  ex.  home documents and then you see weird text that is incomplete etc.  also when you right click a file inside a folder to say delete - the list is incomplete rendering.  only way is to reboot but is that a moksha error?  anyway of resetting/rebooting without having to completely reboot or shutdown and retsart the system in toto? what is the cause of it?


thank you.
