The threshold for discoverability on Mastodon is pretty high, so be generous about boosting other people. Sometimes you're the signal, and sometimes you're the path the signal takes through the noise.

While putting in grommets for the mini-dodger project this afternoon I smashed my mouse-clicking finger with a hammer 😑 ...

After about 3 weeks of sewing, and lots of help from our friends, we've built a dodger from scrap canvas and vinyl we had onboard.

It will keep the rain and spray out of the companionway for the foreseeable future.

Mission successful! 🥳

One thing I LOVE about fermentation is that it frees me from the mild germophobe tendencies I've picked up over the years.

This industry doesn't rly create more jobs for locals either. The pellet plants are run largely by machines (very few employees).
The 'pellet boom' has benefited shareholders more than it has rural communities.

"In the early days of pellet production, lumber waste was indeed the principal raw material, but Conservation North, which keeps tabs on local producers, has found that whole trees increasingly feed this growing industry."

Currently, about 90 percent of the wood pellets produced in Canada are used to power electricity plants overseas.
