Why this blog?
In our world of prepackaged goods and experts with laser focused specialties sometimes it's good just to know how to do something yourself. How to do something, anything, without having to become that narrow focused expert... How to be a little more self reliant and a little less like a cog in a machine... How to try something new, just to try something new... How to recover some of that ingenuity that us Americans were once famous for...
The maxim, "a little knowledge goes a long way." pretty much sums it up.
What should you expect to see here? Anything from how to deliver a baby, to how to make the perfect mint julep. I'll be posting some of my own trials and attempts, linking to other succinct sources, and also republishing some older pre-internet knowledge.
I hope you find that kernel of knowledge you are seeking and perhaps a kernel or two you weren't looking for.
