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.

Pics from around the house

Orange and white flowers in the valley

Innovative lo-tech way to keep the  $%^& birds from building a nest over the thermometer face

Hops doing OK

About half of the pricey flowers did not make it through the winter

Finally getting caught up

Chains dull fast when you cut wrong way

Half logs are screwed  to this to make them round with the chain saw

Before you take your assault weapon to Target -- believe it or not

The first 30 seconds are the point. The rest is for all the 'gun nuts' out there with the hope they listen.

The key to preventing the next terrorist attack?

Finally a fresh idea on the subject:

"Here’s what doesn’t get the headlines: Empathy. Listening to those around you. Even if you don’t like them very much.
Despite being relevant and important discussions, the glamorous headlines are ultimately distractions — they just feed into the carnage and the attention and the fame the killer desired. They are distractions from what is right in front of you and me and the victims of tomorrow’s shooting: people who need help. And while we’re all fighting over whose pet cause is more right and more true and more noble, there’s likely another young man out there, maybe suicidally depressed, maybe paranoid and delusional, maybe a psychopath, and he’s researching guns and bombs and mapping out schools and recording videos and thinking every day about the anger and hate he feels for this world.
And no one is paying attention to him."
