Gadgets and Gizmos / Maybe Smoke Related
« on: February 01, 2021, 09:41:30 PM »
Two, sometimes 3 times a year I find myself cutting back numerous shrubs, rose bushes, and pruning the trees.  And I cut the debris into very small pieces by hand so that it fits trash bags and goes to the land fill.  Very labor intensive.  I got the itch a few days ago and researched electric chipper shredders and after watching a couple dozen videos and looking at online manuals, I purchased a Sun Joe CJ602E from Amazon.  So many different brands but most had the very same cutter head design; only the housing and shield differed. Some heavier duty models had a different cutter design and produce what can best be described at tiny logs.  Long story short:  I will use the chips/shreddings for composting and landscaping and save some for another use. I figured I might try smoking with 'homemade' chips in the future and figured that some of you folks that have pruning chores might want to consider producing your own chips, especially for the Bella or other device.

Anything Goes!! / Sad Ending
« on: October 03, 2020, 08:56:37 PM »
This is a sad story of the depression that can haunt a man.

Marcel was sick and tired of the world; of Covid 19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, global warming, racial tensions,
and the rest of the disturbing stories that occupy media headlines.

Marcel drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back
into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favorite radio station and started the car.

Four days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and saw him in the car. She notified
the emergency services and they broke in, pulling Marcel from the car. A little sip of water and, surprisingly,
he was in perfect condition, but his Tesla had a dead battery.

I've posted this a couple years back and thought to post it again for all the new owners of a smoker.  This prevents one from peeking. This photo does not do justice to what I actually see, much clearer  than a picture. 

Anything Goes!! / Do Masks Work?
« on: August 01, 2020, 09:21:36 PM »
Lots of controversy or arguments along political lines as to whether wearing a cheap throw away surgical mask works in slowing the spread of the covid 19 virus.  Maybe this video will help folks decide yes or no.  I can tell you that where I live they are mandatory.  Most folks comply; some do not.  Anyway, enjoy the video.

If any of you are tired of ads on your computer, AG has a birthday special. I started with the free version a couple of years back and found it better than the free versions of AdBlock (just my opinion) and last year got the paid version.  Anyway, for what it's worth, here is a link:

Anything Goes!! / Completely Unrelated To Smoking
« on: April 10, 2020, 11:46:50 PM »
Earlier this year, my 11 year old iMac started acting rather quirky.  Safari would quit unexpectedly and repeatedly. The system was too old for an OS upgrade. The hard drive was dying. But I figured reinstalling the original OS that came with the system might work and then I could just update back to where I was. No go. The iMac functioned pretty well for a while with an 11 year old OS. But all my files were gone. Bought a new iMac in Feb and to make sure I had a backup, I also purchased an 8 TB LaCie 2big with thunderbolt 3.  Well, sitting at home courtesy of the virus I finally installed the new drive as my back-up and using time machine.  I set it up as a raid 1 so I have two 4 terabyte  drives running.  If one dies, the other is a mirror image so I should not lose anything. All is well. The system backs up automatically and the LaCie is very quiet.

Also received an email from AdGuard. 40% off their premium version of the ad blocker program. I have used it and Malwarebytes for a couple of years. 

Well, that is enough non smoking related chatter.  Stay safe everyone!
