    25 years ago I got my old mentor to come out and fell a tree with axe and long saw. Just to show a bunch of apprentices how it was done. Richard, my partner was one of them. None of us have felt " good with an axe" after seeing 75 year old Paul Plewa wield one. He walked past a wrist size branh and lopped it off parrallel to the log without even stopping. We still talk about that day.

    The Stephen's Island Wren in New Zealand Xenicus lyallii Was wiped out by a single cat. There was a lighthouse on the island, and the lighthouse keeper had a cat, which took out the whole population of Wrens. It would have been a pleasure to put a bullet in that cat, really.

    I love Asparagus. Happily I live next to a field of them and have carte blance to pick as many as I can eat. Tonight's dinner is something I was served at a restaurant in Schweiz 2 years ago and have been fiddling with since. Cook some gnocchi. Then brown some butter in the wok, and toss a lot of chopped Asparagus in. Let then cook for a bit, then add the gnocchi. When they are warmed through, toss in a couple of large handfull of Arugula salad, salt and pepper and the juice of a Lime. Stir twice and eat. Fast, easy and tasty.

    I don't hate cats. At least not when they are dead. Denmark has a population of 6 million people and 3 million feral cats. I do my best to remedy the last part of that.

    I've mentioned it before, Al puts me in mind of the fellow in " https://www.amazon.com/Connecticut-Yankee-King-Arthurs-Court/dp/1719555702/ref=sr_1_1?crid=H5BIN9JOI6HI&keywords=a+connecticut+yankee+in+king+arthur%27s+court&qid=1557763453&s=books&sprefix=a+connec%2Cstripbooks-intl-ship%2C247&sr=1-1 " If you haven't read it, you really should. Al, if you haven't read it, this was meant as a compliment.

    I'll second that. And Mick too, for that matter. Now I'm going to write something that'll get Butch on my ass again for "Dissing 'Merica". What the fuck is wrong with a country where you can't get good people to do treework? The " Bobster" loves to tell us that lefties just want to loaf off and suck the state tit. Then why is it that here in commieland I've never had that problem. Bear in mind that I've trained apprentices for 25+ years. I've had a few who dropped out, because they realized that logging wasn't really what they thought it would be, but not a single one that wasn't up to the job. So, Sean, I'm sorry, but I'll have to side with Rich, Mick and Burnham and say that the problem is you, not your employees. I simply refuse to believe that the workers in the US are as bad as that.
