The heft and feel of a well-worn handle,
The sight of shavings that curl from a blade;
The logs in the wood pile, the sentiment of huge beams in an old-fashioned house;
The smell of fresh cut timber and the pungent fragrance of burning leaves;
The crackle of kindling and the hiss of burning logs.
Abundant to all the needs of man, how poor the world would be
Without wood.

Everard Hinrichs, quoted by Eric Sloane in A Reverence for Wood

When You Learn Something, You Learn It

These have been interesting times, lately, with folks cussing and discussing issues relevant to our Constitution and its intent. And of course, it's nice to know that we've all been ingrained with the principles of our founding document from our earliest schooldays.




Good ol' Barney. What a guy.
