    Wooden Water Pipes

    Wooden water pipes dating back to 1812 were found during water line maintenance in Philadelphia. This is an older article from 2017 but I just came across it recently. I wonder what the pros/cons are versus modern piping? By the look of it, they seem to be cedar but I could be wrong...

    Forest hunters etiquette question

    Remember that one hunter who thought he caught me on camera walking through his area when we were looking for arrowheads? I got pretty heated being blamed for something that I didn't do. He was armed so I didn't take it further but that rubbed me the wrong way.

    Isolation 2020

    I'm not old, but like all of us, I am not getting any younger. Therefore those who are more senior than me, please bear with my pathetic attempts at "how things have changed," but I hope you at least appreciate the following anecdote and sentiment. Back in the early 1980s, I remember as a...
