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.

Venting outhouse to help the planet

To help the environment we added a second vent to the outhouse pit. The outhouse itself is seen in the upper left corner of this pic.

Potential oflactory life enrichment experience

This is another example of how we keep from getting bored in the country. Once a month we walk and crawl around the LP tank sniffing for leaks.


More global warming proof

A downy woodpecker hides behind the mountain ash tree north of the garage. Note the black tree paint we used in an attempt to fix the damages caused by the birds last year. These birds never touched this tree until St. Algore started whining about global warming so his rantings must be the cause of the damage.



This is a close-up view of the damage. This tree may not have long for this world.

Bottom of the barrel for life enrichment activities

For a life enrichment activity today we decided to destroy part of nature.




When we got done this was what was left. The weeds standing have lilacs in them. We are hoping they will become an olfactory life enrichment experience when they are adults.


This was the implement of destruction used in the massacre. It works better on weeds than feet.



With this done the search for life enrichment continued in the shade.

Widening the driveway creates political problems

We had the guy who made the hiking trail also widen the driveway. They tell us the fire crews will not come on land during a forest fire unless they have a place to turn around. Little did we know the implications of this move. It used to be we only had one choice. We drove down the center of the driveway. Now we have to choose center, left or right. When we choose the right side our left-leaning friends are not happy. When we choose the left side the right-leaning friends are not happy in turn. When we drive down the middle we get called wishy-washy or people like Rush Limbaugh call us people who cannot make up our minds.

Summer life enrichment activities

Every summer we watch the garden grow except last year when little animals ate it all.

Instead of going to the local casino we place bets on what bird will show up next at the bird bath. This saves gasoline and in turn is good for the planet.


When we want to relax we watch our new gound cover spread.
