Connecting back to nature can have that effect. Hope you may as well!

Cool! How did you come to have a pet deer? Years ago, camping with a group, a fawn walked right into our camp. Apparently something happened to it's mother. They are far more intelligent than we credit them.

That's amazing. You surely have a big heart! Sounds like a great, happy life you're living (and too the animals you take care of).  :)

Keeps my kids from having to grow up in the big city woes, like I did,
They turning out soft & naive vs cold hearted

The isolation is a catch22.

Country living is where it's at!  ;)



The day job asked me to get drone certified. It wasn't an easy process. Not overly difficult though. Anyway, they have sent me to a workshop in a beach town. More stress relief! Paid for it too!  ;D

An hour's drive from us is a substantial Christmas lights display each year. An annual visit is a family tradition. We have had a pact we would visit in the snow should the opportunity arise. Our snows normally come in Jan and Feb. Tonight we got our wish. It was wonderful!

Here it's 0/3 ℃, it is supposed to snow between today and tomorrow, but I doubt.

We went playing around yesterday. We topped a remote mountain. Didn't see another human, but still made a friend. 8)

Never any snow where I live, either. But look on the bright side: low heating costs and no danger of slipping on ice
Title: Re: Stress relief
Post by: emanuele on January 18, 2018, 11:41:29 pm
Well, I live in a place where there is no snow, but it's hot either. lol
These days the average is between 2 to 8 °C.

Somehow I missed this post ... me needs details on the brisket, how was it done, rubs, low and slow?  I need to fire up my BGE and make me some beefy goodness!

I would love to share the secret recipe with you....








......but it isn't mine. A friend did all the prep. My coding skills are better than cooking skills. And my coding skills are dismal at best.  Lol!

If you want to chat smoking, grilling, and other culinary delights, pop in on jeep-owner.com. Some of those guys are grilling fiends!

Looking very good the meat in the second photo ;)
I also like grilling, in the last years I switched from calf meat to fish meat. The photos are from a couple of years ago, but I usually grill 2-3 times every summer, only because prosecco is so good with fish ;)
Title: Re: Stress relief
Post by: Spuds on June 02, 2018, 01:47:29 am
Its 99F here today, prosecco  goes good with that also  :D   The fish looks great, love grilled shrimp!

I'll join the fun, here are some atomic buffalo turds (jalapeno's stuffed with cheese wrapped in bacon), some baby back ribs and a pork butt (pork shoulder)
Title: Re: Stress relief
Post by: badmonkey on June 02, 2018, 03:00:11 am
You guys have it going on! Frilled fish is great! Buffalo turds is a new nomer for me (and a good one! Haha!). Good stuff there.

Nope. We are in California/Nevada/Arizona. We are starting in Los Angeles, then Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, San Francisco and back to Los Angeles. With a lot of stops between: ghost towns and backroads, rodeo and festivals, national parks, sightseeing, museums, etc.

A shame they didn't disguise the cell tower as a "tree" and plant shrubs around the base.  Darn thing sticks out like a sore thumb.  Really nice pics BTW Badmonkey

 Thanks elk. We are slowly receiving disguised towers. You're right, they do stick out! Most of them do anyway. This one in particular is so secluded it would only be visible from above. Truly it's one of the few though.

Remember me to post some photos from our trip to the US. But I need some more days to sort them out. We made more then 4.000.  :-[

Oh, and we love your country! We enjoyed the landscapes, the traffic (so relaxed!), the food and the people!  O:-)

Still working on the story for my board(s). Most of the pictures are sorted out, but now I have to write about the experiences we made and the points we visited. I hope I will be done with it in a few days. :-[

P.S. I know it is small. It's my portrait lens.  :D

I just added more pressure to myself by coding to secure ISPConfig servers with letsencrypt. As a relief, it seems all are working well now whether for its webserver or non-webservers, using certbot or acme.sh, on install or update. Hope the new PR are accepted and merged. ;P
