    Well I might just have to hook you up then. Might make Punky look bad ;) I got my fill of posting on fb working with social media integration, but the messenger option is pretty useful.

    Dixie Chicks

    Hey everyone, thanks for all the wellwishing! Al, not living there anymore. It's a hobby I will miss, and something I probably won't be able to do for some time. I won't go into detail in a public forum, but feel free to add me on facebook if you want to, you can probably find me there. Unless...

    @perchie.girl Hey Deb, how are things with you? =)

    Hey Sam and Beer, mentions do tend to draw me out =) No, no kids yet, and might be a while before that happens. I found myself being single after almost 12 years last fall, and the chickens and bunnies and whatnot have been rehomed. That, and work keeping me busy has kept me away from this...

    I made blueberry jam out of a quart that had been forgotten in the fridge for a couple of days, it turned out amazing. Especially with fresh croissants.

    Chicka, we take them out of their pen to eat some grass every once in a while. They wouldn't stay in that full time. Ron, yeah, possibly we're gonna get the peak of that mountain as a 100 year birthday present. At the moment, the highest spot in Finland is located about 40 meters (130 feet)...

    Al, I think it's because we're a pretty flat country, usually glaciers are higher up.

    Hot composting with chicken bedding and garden waste

    @politicalcenter Looks awfully dry to me, have you added any water at all? @HennyPennyCO If looks don't matter, pallets can be used. Personally, I like ozexpats concrete brick system, seems to work nicely for him. He has 4 5x5x5 sections open on one side, and every time the first one is...

    Bruce, the population is believed to have gotten started from domestic bunnies that have gone feral. In the Helsinki city center you can actually see some other color variations from time to time, but most of those tend to be pretty short lived. The darn bunnies have spread further from the city...

    Bruce, we get those (City-bunnies as they're known as here) in our yard too. One feral bunny keeps visiting our tame ones, and it has already given them ear mites once. I should finally put together the trap I've been constructing in my head.

    No Glaciers in Finland (not since 10000 years back or so). Back when all of this was covered by half a mile of ice it did press us down a lot, so in places the ground is raising over a quarter inch annually still. The drinking water supplied from Päijänne through the aforementioned tunnel is...

    And Deb, it's no use, you'll never get it working. You should look into Suunto products instead. (I'm just messing with you).

    @Latestarter Oh yeah, dogs are good, and better half too, even though she managed to fracture her hand a bit yesterday using a dummy launcher (Google it) the wrong way. Like Forrest's momma used to say, "Stupid is as stupid does." @room onthebroom Yeah, I've finally got everything growing...

    Hey there, Bunny! Well Bruce, if you insist: Garden is doing great, maters, eggplant, beans and pumpkins being the main focus this year. Then the front side of the house: Three ways to utilize IKEA boxes (and a bit of compost cage parts): A bad pic of some...

    Al, sorry about the carnage =/ Hope you've plugged the hole for good. JWB, nice looking SS:s =) Hey Debs, nice to see you got your puter back quickly. Yeah, I'll try to pop in a bit more often, but work has been keeping me busy. That, and playing Pokemon. :P

    One thing I like to make that's similar is to take fruits or berries and put them in a pan, and add some sugar as needed (depending on how sour the fruit you're using is). Then I take about 2 cups of oat meal, maybe a stick of butter, a cup of sugar, some salt, a couple table spoons of wheat...

    Hot composting with chicken bedding and garden waste

    Well, still running hot, the temp has been above the capabilities of what my thermometer can register (55C/130F). Been adding some pee soaked bunny bedding and watering and turning every once in a while. Lazy, yeah, if I were to build the compost today, I would just have made it twice as big...
