Timber!

by Ed Naile September 12, 2014

Before I forget. I work for Granite State Lumberjack Shows and since about 1993 I have been trimming and preparing wood for the Stihl Timbersports Competition. This includes driving a truck loaded with equipment all over the US and once in Alaska . We even did a show in Munich in 2001. As far as […]

The Nashua Telegraph is behind a pay wall I wouldn’t waste ten cents to get past but I can still read the snippets, and this one was enough to make me laugh. CONCORD – A growing program to permit homeowners to empty their garages and basements of old paint fell victim to political branding in […]

I have considered shooting video of me fertilizing ‘my lawn.’  It would encompass a camera recording me as I walk a spreader across the yard, with little green and off-white pellets skittering across the top of a 12 inch pack of ice and snow.
