Re: Pandemic

Car battery update; wife’s battery was one year old. “Delco”. A dud that would not keep charge and replaced under warranty. 1.5 years ago I had a top of line interstate battery in my suv and it was not holding charge after nine months ago and had it swapped and ok now.

Short and very sharp thorns all on the very rigid branches. Went through je...

Re: Pandemic

Had noted this issue in the maintenance list but didn’t think it would apply to my situation. Wife went to start the car the other day and dead battery, easy boost but still dead.

Re: Survival in the Bush. 1954 NFB film.

I worked up in James bay for about seven years and they used the conventional Teepee frame for the summer and a wider / larger but flat roofed one for the winter.
