Be in the Arena!

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could've done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly... who had the best knows in the end the triumph of high…See More

Aeropress Coffee Maker

A friend just pinged me about a new coffee machine called an Aeropress. Have any of you heard of it? The video on their website explains it. It's similar to an espresso machine. In fact, I'd say it's just like a manual espresso machine. But, it's plastic and small enough to hold in your hand. I think I'll try one out!…See More

Bees on the bike trail

These bees took a time out and swarmed on a branch. They're probably looking for a new place to make a hive. I talked with the expert at Cross Creek Honey and she is going to investigate. Here's what the bees looked like a little while later:See More

This phalaenopsis is the most trouble free plant I've ever had. Our friends gave it to us as a dinner gift one evening. That was over 10 years ago. I do absolutely nothing to it. It lives in the shade and feeds on air and moisture. Every so often, it surprises us with some blossoms that…

Gifted sprouts are the best, aren't they? These herbs were gifted to me from friends just going crazy over hydroponics. I took exactly 10 minutes and planted these herbs in a huge pot on the patio. I hope they grow like wildfire. Thanks for the gifted…

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".  :-)

Thanks Mike.  Took a little bit to sign up since you told me about it but happy I did.

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:-
