April? Already?

  Once upon a time April Fools used to be fun but now it’s just a bunch of brands trying to seem cool with a bunch of boring ass obvious lies. And, because it’s Easter. Christianity is a myth designed to prop up Roman Imperial State control just like the cults of Mithras and Sol …

Naturally Dyed Eggs

NATURALLY DYED EGGS Now with updates! Natural Easter Egg Dyes In the Gilmore house there is no surer sign of Easter than onion skin boiled eggs.  I like them much more than the traditional store kit dyed kind because they have a subtle onion scent that lingers even after you peel them.  In fact sometimes …

Groundhog Day

What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered? That about sums it up for me. Ned?  Ned Ryerson?! You like boats, but not the ocean. You go to a lake in summer with your family up in the mountains. …
