Watches and Writing · 2:31pm Mar 21st, 2017

It's a beautiful spring morning, and I'm catching up on watch work. Which is to say I'm working with a smile on my face.

But enough about how I need to clean my bench. I wanted to ask your opinion on something.

Self promotion and update · 1:03am Mar 8th, 2017

So I'm a jeweler. It's what I've done for a living the last 10 years. Over the last three months I've slowly started getting my home studio better equipt in order to venture into the world of self-employment. I've have my watch repair bench up an running for a while now, but my jewelry bench is just now getting back to a functioning condition. I have a bit left to go, but in a week or two I should be all systems go.

Pre-modern woods. · 4:55pm Jan 17th, 2017

I thought some of you would find this video interesting. I like the idea that ponies cultivate the woods around them to harvest from. It gives the Everfree a bit more depth, to think this may be the only wild woods they've ever seen.

Random Daydreaming · 7:14pm Dec 23rd, 2016

Sorry for two posts in one day, but I wanted to share this.

You ever kick yourself for not being able to buy something? Well, the exact plane I molded The Baron on, from House of the Rising Sun, is up for sale on Ebay.

The most frustrating part is I have a COZY 4 kit I'd haply sale to buy that, but I just can't unload the thing.

Equestrian festival idea. · 3:21pm Dec 23rd, 2016

I've noticed Equestria is missing two festivals. There really should be a harvest festival. They're still a largely agrarian society. Shortly before Running of the Leaves, there should be a celebration for getting all the food in. Not only is it a chance to unwind after all the hard work of harvest season, but it's also a good way to eat the last of the fresh food that will spoil soon. (side note: I would also expect to see some canning bees in the days before.)

Cider Update · 12:36am Dec 13th, 2016

I moved the Belgian yeast batch into a secondary, and added fining agents to both batches. Fining is a catch-all term for something that makes the cider/beer/wine more clear / less cloudy. Mostly it's cosmetic, though it will remove unwanted yeast flavor too. Photos here.

The English will stay in the conical fermenter until I have the Belgian in bottles.

Things that influnce my writing: 1 · 3:38pm Dec 6th, 2016

Was talking with a friend the other day, and a book (or rather series) I'd kinda forgotten about came up. The Sleeping Dragon (Guardians of the Flame #1)
