Martinez and his Coleman camping stove conversion. He turned one old
stove he found at Goodwill into a bathroom cabinet with masonite
shelves that he added inside. How genius!? Did you catch the airport
wire loop, yeah that's the towel holder. You can read about the
conversion at length in the next issue of Craft Magazine in my column
called Re: Fitted where I cover innovative folks working creatively

tomorrow. I am a big fan of this vegan spinach quiche. It goes quite
well with apple slices coated in a thin layer of blue agave, shredded
asiago cheese with some drizzled balsalmic vinegar.
1. It detects the temperature of the return coolant and allows us to switch into veg mode when the coolant is near 180F.
2. It times the purge cycle and tells us when we can stop flushing the fuel lines with diesel as to remove all the grease in the system and prevent clogging.
I wandered about town on foot and stopped by what I had observed to be a permanent garage sale at Vern's house on my way to the post office. Further inspection revealed that what began for Vern as a garage sale - to get the $ to move out of T or C - became a FT business selling assorted junk. His home has been converted into a thrift shop of sorts. The intention to move has faded. The best part was the tour was in areas where things are not for sale. There I saw Vern's massive cassette tape collection, home made instruments (which were really impressive!) and VHS tapes of himself performing on various streets in American cities using instruments he made. My favorite tape sported Vern in a full santa suit playing a modified kazoo with a happy man in similar attire accompanying him on an instrument I'd never seen before. Everything in the land of Vern had an unnecessary layer of bright paint, a glob of glitter, or a crystal glued to it. I left Vern's house feeling good. I treasure the gleaner, especially one like Vern who can demonstrate a world within this world that I may not ever have noticed. I think I'll go clear out my shed and donate all my garage sale junk to him so he never runs out of stuff to sell and remains my neighbor a while longer.

begin participating in our blog. Hello!
Humans tend to resist using words such as sacred, we feel funny embracing new practices that pay homage to the elements such as welcoming fire or thanking it for what it brings. So often we get hung in the the words themselves and the awkwardness of new actions and we wonder, "does divining an element mean I'm in a cult, a religion, what cult, what religion, what might happen... our cultural training pulls references from all directions and fills our imaginations to the point of confusion. May I remind us that the inclusion of a new view does not require that we 'give up' our current view, rather it asks that we become more vast and so able to see more than we could before. But in the doing our own view remains safely in tact.
We have already seen what happens when we do not consider the natural world sacred. It is dying all around us and we are dying with it. Perhaps we might forget the semantics or what our culture has programmed us to think and fear and consider that what matters is the point of view that brings health, harmony and happiness. If treating the elements and the natural world as 'sacred' brings us into a relationship of respect with the earth, one in which we protect it, than call it religion, a cult, a state of mind, or simply the right thing to do.
History has shown us that reality molds itself around our consciousness. What has shaped the earth into what we see before us now? Us, our ideas made manifest.
Lets not worry about if fire is really a deity. Perhaps these questions will get answered on their own. If you have a heart to check in with you are qualified to define, create, copy, or invent ways to make sacred what we rely on and have cheated of our respect. What cult does that put you in? The cult of the sane, the emotionally healthy, the I don't shit where I eat, the kind, and perhaps the cult of those alive in the future.
