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.

The old blog description saved for posterity

The Warped Wood Turner

Fully funded by stimulus money, TWW (The Depraw Renrutdoow who is a practicing calamitologist predicting global climate disruption) lives on Garbin Moraine located at 45.93°N 91.61°W where normal is only a setting on the washing machine. His motto is "Exacerbation through iteration". His business model is to create wooden bowls for people to donate to Salvation Army stores. In his spare time he creates computer models of nonexistent phenomena.

for donations above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to MJGR. (the R stands for Robbindale)

TWW thought Wikileaks had something to do with going to the bathroom

so decided to find out how much leaking Wikis caused global warming.  He learned from Wiki

"The contribution to the greenhouse effect by a gas is affected by both the characteristics of the gas and its abundance. For example, on a molecule-for-molecule basis methane is about eighty times stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide ,[6] but it is present in much smaller concentrations so that its total contribution is smaller. When these gases are ranked by their contribution to the greenhouse effect, the most important are:[7]
Water VaporH2O36 – 72 %  
Carbon DioxideCO29 – 26 %
MethaneCH44 – 9 %  
OzoneO33 – 7 %  
It is not possible to state that a certain gas causes an exact percentage of the greenhouse effect. This is because some of the gases absorb and emit radiation at the same frequencies as others, so that the total greenhouse effect is not simply the sum of the influence of each gas. The higher ends of the ranges quoted are for each gas alone; the lower ends account for overlaps with the other gases.[7][8] The major non-gas contributor to the Earth's greenhouse effect, clouds, also absorb and emit infrared radiation and thus have an effect on radiative properties of the greenhouse gases.[7][8]


Since human leakage releases water which vaporizes and is destroying the planet more than CO2 why isn't the Al Gore crowd telling people to hold it as long as they can?

Policy Idea for the Touch Sensitive Area (TSA) Officials

IT is obvious where the real threat is coming from and it has nothing to do with religion. It is the white male computer programmers whom we need to fear.  See this link

Rare sighting on Garbin Moraine

Question for the day

Why aren't any  people blaming President Obama for all of the TSA invasions of privacy like would have been sure to have happened when Bush and Cheney were running roughshod with our rights when they were in charge? 

Be wary of thinking this is true:

Bad lewdbrot dough makes mediocre potato pancakes

The Norske-in-chief rejected one of TWW's attempts to make lewdbrot dough mix so the question became what is bad lewdbrot dough good for. The answer is potato pancakes. 

TWW tried to make potato pancakes with so-so results. 

Next time they will be thinner. TWW also might get a dog.

A National Philanthropy Day surprise

No sooner had National Philantropy Day (see post below)  begun than the doorbell rang on Garbin Moraine Manor. TWW usually gets out the shotgun before he answers the door in cases like this but this time forgot and answered the door. It turned out to be a neighbor making a donation of venison to our cause.  TWW thanks the man in camo. 

National Philanthropy Day

Taken from an e-mail From Guidestar:

National Philanthropy Day logo

We at GuideStar want to wish you a very happy National Philanthropy Day. Celebrated every November 15 for the past 25 years, this day recognizes the great contributions that people active in the philanthropic community—like you—have made to the world.
This year, there are events and celebrations being held in 125 communities involving 50,000 people around the world. You can find out more about these events on the official site of this day

TWW says "Guidestar does not endorse you using the donate button above but you are welcome to do so at your own risk".

A conspiracy?

TWW finally fixed his wife's computer.  A few days back Mrs. TWW turned on the computer and got a screen saying the computer could not turn on and there was a Windows program trying to fix things but promised not to change any personal data. After many minutes TWW finally cancelled the program and then turned the computer back on and it worked.  He later noticed the computer could not get at the Internet.  After many false starts working with redoing the router with no luck TWW decided to see if the security software (not a Microsoft product) could be to blame. Somehow the security software was blocking access to the Internet for Chrome (made by Google).  Is there a connection with the mysterious Microsoft product and Google's Chrome not working??  You decide.

Build it and they will come - Day 4

Since Juan Williams got in trouble saying something about not letting political correctness getting in the way of reality, TWW decided not to put out a "no coons" sign while trying to catch a homeless cat so he could take it to the animal shelter for disposal. Well, guess who came to dinner last night.

It worked


Does worrying they will get what is left over if they don't get a buck soon

Renew, Reuse, Recycle

The pictures above are of the stand for an Aussie grill that rusted out. It now saves TWW's back by carrying wood to the masonry stove leading to more life enrichment.
