Does this help? This is the same cabin from behind. This image includes the stove pipe. Another hint: Not famous, not politically charged (like Ted Kaczynski's) and Mark Twain never slept in it.

Does anyone recognize the cabin used on the header? Hint: it is not my cabin; nor is it Abraham Lincoln’s.

I miss writing the old fashioned way, you know, putting pen to paper, dipping my quill in a bottle of ink, that sort of thing. So the rest of this entry will be hand written and sent through the mail.

Back to my thesis

The above is a variation on “board and batt,” siding, very common in cabin construction. The above uses split saplings for battens.

Everything is Connected

Did you know that Warren Earl (Burger) replaced Earl Warren as Supreme Court Justice?
Which reminds me of the unlikely fact that Lee Iacocca's last name is an accidental acronym for his former job title: “I am chairman of Chrysler Corporation of America.” And Lee designed the ford Mustang. Ford owns Jaguar. A Jaguar is a large cat native to Mexico. Mexico is an anagram for coexim, which is meaningless. See how everything is connected? It’s like the butterfly effect that is best described as: a butterfly in the Amazon flaps it’s wings and attracts the attention of a bird who eats the butterfly, lands on the ground to digest and is eaten by a Jaguar which is a large cat native to parts of the Amazon and Mexico which, as we discovered earlier, is an anagram for coexim, among other non words. It makes you think.


This is what I show my class when we get to the section I call, "Abusing your Subjects."
