    Butch, Your immune system needs more than bacon and eggs... Hopefully, you can beat this infection and use it as a motivation to make some changes in your diet... The antibiotics are going to devastate your gut bacteria (microbiome). A healthy microbiome is crucial to health, immune, brain function, etc... You may not hear much on that from the doctors as the research is kinda new, and there is a lag time between the time the research gets done and when it makes its way into the clinician's office. Healthy microbiome needs probiotics and prebiotic fiber. That's indigestible plant material, fermented foods such as live culture sauerkraut, and good probiotic supplements. There is plenty of science to back this up. The Budwig diet gets good reviews at cancertutor.com. and my friend Maggie beat stage 4 colon cancer (moved to the lung, liver, and both breasts) using the Budwig diet. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320352.php And you need help... How much support at home do you have?

    We're mortal and we're all going to die. Hopefully, peacefully in the counsels of loved ones and friends. There's no sugar coating it. But least may there be some glint of grace in it. My Aunt Abby died last week of cancer. Last of the elders in my family to pass. But still she out lived many of her siblings and offspring. Wonderful lady. I didn't make it to her funeral. Just too far away. In the meantime a few of my friends in Ft. Bragg, in the last year, have died of cancer and other health related issues, and each year it getting to be more. Oh yeah, I'm in the big league now, and with a little luck, and modern drugs, I might live to 90. 20 more years. I hope. There's so much I still want to do, but I know the end is near. I've lived a good life, made some mistakes along the way, but the life I've lived I am so thankful for. I have accomplished so much, and have shared the enrichment of life's experience from so many good folks along the way. Butch is an extra special human being I've been fortunate to get to know. Though some distance away surely not far away enough to pay a visit now and then. A fine fellow and friend, and has done so much good to bring us all together and share our experiences in the community tree workers, and what not. My hats off to Mr. Ballowe! He has enriched our lives.

    if you're talking about the first cut, it's pretty obvious.. because I suck at cutting humboldts! On the other hand.... it was a 40-second notch cut, and only 10 seconds on the back cut, less than a minute to drop that 30' top through a tight hole... I'll trade a few seconds of fooling around on an important cut for the time saved in taking a big top. If you're talking about the second notch (30 seconds), it's because I changed my mind mid-cut. I was going to use a snap cut or a modified coos bay, which means no notch, so the but would just slide off the cut and drop, then thought it might be better to allow the top to move out and away from me just a little before the whole thing dropped, so I put a narrow notch in. Which turned out to be an interesting cut... No need for directional control, so really didn't need the hinge to control movement. Starting with a down angled sidecut, then rolling that around for an undercut... little hard to explain in writing... Do you cut from the bucket much? It's a little awkward reaching over the boom side, which doesn't show on the video. I try to avoid that reach through optimal placement. One of the things I like about video is that it provides a perfect record of time taken on any action, which helps in increasing efficiency and eliminating wasted effort.

About August Hunicke
Biography:
Born (1968) and raised in the Alaskan bush. No power, no running water my entire childhood. We lived almost entirely off the land, eating salmon and moose meat primarily. Bought rice, beans, and wheat in large sacks periodically. My father was originally from Southern California but after Vietnam wasn't welcomed home. He made his own home with my beautiful mother in Hatcher Pass Alaska, far from stores and cars and highways. He built the log cabin I was born in. He delivered me and my brothers and sisters there and raised us up working hard. He read us the bible and taught us about God. I'm not ashamed of it nor do I think I have to plead with anyone to "get saved." Growing up, I was embarrassed at times by where we lived and thought we were poor because we didn't have light switches and drive a k car. Now I know we were rich. Rich in substance and heart and capability. I thought I was lazy as a child because I didn't look forward to all the hard work. I found out later when I entered the work force in the tree and also commercial fishing industries that I was not lazy but in fact stood out as a hard worker. I live in Oregon now, 2 miles from my now civilized parents (light switches and all) because they moved here. I have a beautiful wife and little ones. I want them to be close to my parents. Home is wherever my parents go and I intend to carry on the legacy of love of my father until I die in all my relationships, including here at the Tree House.
