It's so big if I placed it in a window, my neighbors could read it.

This is the ham equivalent of placing shooting targets in your window? ;D

Because I'm worth it, I used the color laser printer at the office to print out on 11"x17".

Got an empty hive availabile? Not the one they just left... Upend a garbage. And use lemon grass, and hopefully you can regain they.

I got home from work today and there were thousands of bees flying.  Of course I had to check it out.  It's been rainy for the past week and it just cleared up.  I thought maybe I'd be lucky and they were just doing cleansing flights.

No such luck, the one hive was swarming.  I've had them swarm in previous years and I caught the swarm.  But this time they are about 40 feet up in a holly tree.  I can't get to them.  I'm hoping that they will move to a lower area and I'll grab them.

It was cool to be there when they swarmed.  But to lose all these bees sucks.

No. I may have to try that. Thanks

My package with 50m of candle wick has arrived. 
No time lately to do much more, except of forging practice that I do for living. My knifemaking and heat treating is getting better every day.

I was able to reach the 800 number and get a partial answer:  Chard/Carey merged with a company called Metalworks, owned by the Nesco people. The sent me a copy of the user manual, but had no information on the status of the canner, beyond the fact that retailers are still carrying it. I'm assuming I can still get warranty service if I ever need it.

I ordered 17500s just to see.
The 14500 work and I can expand my EDC with the toothpicks ;D

"Q" Tips are something else often forgotten.

Yes. I date the bags by month and year, then use the oldest bag, which is replaced on the next supply run

Have you ever tried adding 5% to 10% GREEN coffee beans to the grind. A buddy of mine is Australia swears by it for antioxidant  properties and smoother flavor.
