TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

Sometimes you are doing life enrichment activities and don't even realize it. Here Mr and Mrs TWWT are watching their feet as the basement woodstove warms them up. It sure beats watching a TV set.  Posted by Picasa

In the book A Pattern Language Alexander etc. talk about how large pains of glass alienate people from the view. Therefore we put a grid on the windows by the bar to get a better view of what people do in our hot tub. See this link for more info on A Pattern Language which we highly recommend for enriching your life by enriching your environment: For further life enrichment we took a square and found how many panes are really square. You may notice the ceiling has lights hanging down. Putting lights into the basement will enrich our lives this winter. Posted by Picasa

We are not alone

We heard it on NPR. There is a web site for people who are even more boring than the TWWT. It is even a club with T-shirts for members. We tried to join but they never got back to us. We think that means our life enrichment steps are making our lives too exciting and we are ineligible to join now . To see the club visit:

On a recent trip to the city Professor R. Squared gave us some exotic wood with the stipulation his wife got the pick of the litter of baby bowls. Here is the first born bowllette. Posted by Picasa

Picture identification experiment

Earlier we posted the picture and text below. The hope was other people would help us enrich our lives with their comments. The experiment attracted several comments so we will leave it run a little longer. Just so you know I ate most of the item shown below. It was pretty boring. The picture is of a loaf of bread as it came from a bread machine. Thanks to all the people who left comments. You have enriched our lives. -- TWWT

We need you help in identifying who or what this is. Please put your answer in as a comment. We found this item on our land. Posted by Picasa

We have discovered another way to enrich one's life. If you have Windows you can go to the desk top and pull up properties. Then you open up the screen saver tab and select My Picture Slide Show. This feature will go through pictures stored on the computer and show them in a slide show. For even more fun while at a friend's house sneak into their computer and set up this slide show. Your friend may get a surprise since whatever is on their computer will be shown to everyone who looks at the computer screen. Posted by Picasa

Our consultant suggested we call Digger's Hotline and have them come out so we can watch them for entertainment. They have neat beeping machines and spray arrows on the ground. Posted by Picasa
