Actuality by Anonymous on May 15th, 2009, 12:56 am
In the Mindset of Actuality

Reality asks the question what is real, could we consider what is actual. I mean the things that bring truth to the personal existence we have individually, our body and our thoughts as one. As quantum mechanics suggests the mechanistic view on a subatomic level. We have the idea in the Western world that we are subservient to a god of all creation or are we the masters of our own fate. Then again are we just apart of the whole? We cannot accept that suffering is something malleable outside of ourselves. We can handle self deprivation or even the doubt or question of reality. And maybe willingly allow these things to happen to ourselves. But, let’s bring up the argument of the Holocaust, the torture and murder of 6 million. One can imagine the suffering on a personal level as to see the ties or attachments we have to nourishment and comfort, perhaps everything we experience would question our limits of tolerance or strength. We can choose to let go o...

Everything is so amazing and nobody is happy by BioWizard on May 14th, 2009, 12:08 pm
People are perpetually cranky, and the better and easier things become, the crankier and less satisfied everyone seems to be. I've always liked Louis CK, and I don't think anyone could've said it funnier.

Presentation to the Parish Council Meeting by Anonymous on May 11th, 2009, 1:24 pm
Tonight we're attending the Parish Council meeting. They've given us a ten minute slot. My partner is going to talk about building development on the farm and I'm going to talk about what we're doing with the land.

I've drawn up a few bullet points as a handout. Here it is:

VINE TREE FARM
PROPOSED USE OF LAND


1) Land Consists of 62 acres made up of:
a) Two large meadows of “equine” quality grassland
b) Flattish area of scrubby and marshy grassland leading to steep hillside gorse and bracken - Faces roughly north-west. Hillside land is slipping
2) Intended Usage of Land
a) Grassland – very suitable for hay and grazing. No intention to change in immediate future. Currently to be grazed by cattle and sheep.
b) Scrubby and Marshy Flatland & Hillside
i) Not suitable for much of value in conventional agriculture. Therefore to be developed as forest farm.
ii) This will consists of a variety of species of trees; canop...

Polytunnel by Anonymous on May 10th, 2009, 12:22 pm
We bought a polytunnel a couple of weeks ago, and I thought "Hey, dead easy to put up.... nothing to it..."

Ha!

The first part of the job is to hammer scaffolding tubes into the ground. These are essentially the "foundations" of the polytunnel. Each length of scaffolding acts a sleeve for the main hoops of tubing which make up the "skeleton" of the tunnel.

Now I'm while fairly robustly built, I'm a bit puny when it comes to wielding a sledgehammer. It took me a full afternoon to get the tubes into the ground at just the right angle to take the hoops. Each hoop is made of of two parts, fitting together with a male/female joint. If the tubes are in the ground at the wrong angle, even slightly, the two halves of the hoops either don't come together at all, or they spring apart with a joyous sproinggggg!!!! noise and you have to start again.

Next job; get the ground sheet down. Easy...
