Friday morning & mid-afternoon was dedicated to distinctly recreational and NON-peak oil activities, although tangentially related since it pertained to knocking things off of my "To-Do-List" of life, and I actually ended up learning a lot more things than I even originally had thought I would.
Friday afternoon, despite being worn out, I managed to deal with the arrival of my Liberty safe, a massive green 550-lb 6' tall fire & gun safe. (Made in the USA, also!) With the short jack, the deliverer managed to get the safe through the deck door and then into the basement doorway. After unbolting it off the skid, and sliding it off carefully, and with clever use of a green hand truck, I was able to get it in further so I could close the door, and after that, across the den to the other half of the den. Eventually I'll get it into its final place, and bolted down. I have two different types of dessicant/dehumidifiers for inside it.
Between Saturday and Sunday, I worked about 7 hours and purged about 132 gallons of weeds & tree leaves from my southeast hedge, and re-mulched with about 255 gallons of mulch, depleting nearly all my "reserve" piles of mulch. I am almost finished that whole area.
The worst was weeding under the blackberries & boysenberries; they are unforgiving and old dead branches with thorns are hard to see mixed in with brown tree leaves & grass. The St John's Wort growing (I didn't plant it) next to the boysenberries was unharmed, and has expanded since last year.
An ideology is by definition not a search for TRUTH-but a search for PROOF that its point of view is right
Equals barter and negotiate-people with power just take
You cant defend freedom by eliminating it-unknown
Our elected reps should wear sponsor patches on their suits so we know who they represent-like Nascar-Roy
