This is how my wakeboard workouts looked like in the first half of the summer. 🤙

How do you spend your spare time? How often do you leave your computing environment?

Last night was a history for me an my family. This what we are passing today we have a very strong strom with a heavy wind and rain which carried the our house roof!!!.

Today's thrift store find: vintage Stahly "Live Blade" vibrating safety razor. After winding the base the razor vibrates for about 3 mins. These were made between the `40s and early `70s. Date code B stamped on head, guessing this is a later model as the head feels like aluminum.

I built a garden box from a section of fence the neighbor had discarded. I think cedar, but may be pine.

I've got it planted now with early potatoes (first time planting potatoes) and will probably add some sugar snap peas once the nights warm up in the next few days.

I think I'm still low on garden space. Not much room for the broccoli and lettuces I want to plant.

once I get home I grab my battery charger and head back out on my lil bike. it's actually a really beautiful drive along the waterfront thru a wooded area; honestly quite peaceful. I plug in the charger but it's only capable of putting out 750ma so I ask the attendant if I can leave it there. it's charging right now, and I'm planning on going to try to start it again in a few hours.

As a former beekeeper, I'll never not share something like this:

"Honey bee behaviours within the hive"

At the bottom it includes 18 videos of bee behavior in cutaway cells. It's super fascinating! (Also it's CC licensed, so share neat bee facts!)

Maple syruping going well this year. Just a single tap to keep from getting overwhelmed on the boiling side, but already on the second batch.

I'm still trying to figure out the easiest way to filter the finished syrup in a small home setting like this.

“The easiest emotional state to generate algorithmically is tribal outrage. It’s a simple and primal emotion. We, as the tech industry, have built a model that we make money when we piss people off. And everyone’s pissed off now, we’ve made a lot of money and people are like, what went wrong? Well, everything went exactly as planned.”

“The central metaphor of the book is that we’re often in “soldier mindset,” motivated to defend our ideas against threatening evidence or arguments. And scout mindset is an alternative to that - a scout’s goal isn’t to defend, but to go out and get an accurate map of reality.”
