Net Neutrality 2017

I urge you to stop the FCC’s plan to end net neutrality *before* the FCC’s December 14th vote.

I don’t want ISPs to have the power to block websites, slow them down, give some sites an advantage over others, split the Internet into “fast lanes” for companies that pay and “slow lanes” for the rest, or force me to buy special “tiers” to access the sites and services I choose. But that’s exactly what the FCC plan would do. Please read it:

Lyman Orchards 2017 Pumpkin Picking

Join us on this trip to Lyman Orchards during October 2017.

We had a great time on an unusually warm New England fall pumpkin picking trip.

We ate apple donuts, ice cream, drank apple cider, walked through a corn maze, rode in a hay ride around the property, checked out the pumpkin patch, visited the store and picked out some pumpkins!

SCREW IT! Ryobi 4V Screwdriver Review

SCREW [drive] IT!

What’s up everyone. In case you didn’t know, our family owns and operates a small online boutique called WoodyThings.com where we offer personalized, wooden items ranging from decorative birdhouses to retirement chest and barware. So every now and again you’ll find me doing a review for a tool we typically use in our workshop. That’s where this review comes in.

As we make items that require us to drill or screw in tight spaces (easy now!) we found that having a small, handheld [powered] screwdriver is a lifesaver! For the past few years I’ve defaulted to the ‘man up!’ strategy and just used a screwdriver.
