A Very Nice Gary Fisher Touring Bike

Win put this Gary Fisher together. Its an American Gary Fisher frame. I think Win said it's an 90's frame.Win built the wheels. His first wheel building project turned out well. He said factory wheels so often don't hold up under heavy loads, so he wanted to remove all doubt and build 'em himself. The…See More

Bean and Potato Stew

I found a veggie squash stew recipe on the web that looked good, but I didn't have any squash. It looked interesting though. The spices are what attracted me to it. Chili, cinnamon, lemon juice and cumin made me think of Morocco. All I…See More

Thanks, Michael!  I followed links from the pics of the stingrays, but did that mostly because I liked what you said about yourself.  I love to have similar birds  "in my space".  :-)

Several years ago a gathering of international stone masons met in Barre Vt for a weeklong symposium.  I'm standing under an arch built by a novice so I couldn't wait for the race which started under the arch to begin.

Building walls without mortar is my new passion.  The long standing passion that brought me to this site  is bicycling.  Are there any cycle savvy members here?

Hey brother!  I joined this crazy site just to try to tell you about Nahko's tuning for "Black as the Night"....it is OPEN D  DADF#AD  and then just strum the drone open, and use an E shape for the other main chord.  Watch his hands in the vid once you tune to Open D and you'll grasp it real quick.  Let me know if you have questions!  I BELIEVE IN THE GOOD THINGS COMIN'....

Nameste and welcome to The Love Company.

We are a small yet big hearted orphanage in need for Volunteers with a love for children and an open mind to help bring joy and love to our children.

The Love Company was founded over 3 years ago in Pokhara and is in existence today only because of its kind hearted and spirited volunteers. To continue to nurture these children and to help sustain the orp
hanage we require the humble help of volunteers. No matter how small or large your contribution maybe, it will make a positive difference to the children and to the running of the orphanage.

Currently we have 14 children, ranging from 3 to 11 years old and all with their own heartfelt stories to tell.
They come from all backgrounds including coming from broken homes, being abused by their families with some children also being rescued from the streets of Nepal.

We are a not for profit organization with your donations and fees going directly to the children and running of the orphanage.

If you are not able to volunteer you can help in other ways such as clothes , stationeries, donations of toys and gifts for the children or alternatively monetary contributions are also most welcome.
It is possible to sponsor a child from our orphanage.

For further information please contact Krishna on:-
