So here's the deal. I have a big stack of logs that need splitting. I know that an axe is for chopping and a maul is for splitting. However, I have read that wood can be split with a regular axe and…Continue
Ok, so I can not, for the life of me, get my Buck 119 knife sharp. I'm using a Craftsman whetstone that has a coarse and a fine side. I've probably read every article and watched every video on how…Continue
I know this topic has been discussed and debated probably a million times over the past few years, and I know I sure am sick of seeing "Made in China" on every product I buy. Most of the things are…Continue
"I was honored to have Dr. Heinz Meng as a professor for my Advanced Ornithology class at SUNY New Paltz, and to have him as a judge for my Master's thesis. He is the man who invented captive breeding for endangered species and the man who…"
"When I lived alone in Indiana, I used to make spaghetti all the time. You can do all sorts of things with spaghetti, different flavorings and styles you can change it up however you like, and it is a cheap meal."
"Easy meal if you have a rice cooker. If you are near a Ikea the children's pots and pans are stainless steel. I use the small strainer as a lift for a ceramic plate. I put rice in the bottom and a fish on the plate. The…"
"I have a steamer that I can cook 4 boneless chicken breasts in, in about 15 mins. That usually lasts as my lunch almost all week. To compliment that I microwave mixed veggies and beans. Then eat a salad with it.

"To me it would depend on it this is a common occurrence. If you are going to find yourself face with a pile of splitting to do at least yearly I'd spring for a maul or at least a heavy bit axe. If not you'll get more mileage out of an good…"
"I have a maul and a hatchet. I find I can take care of most things (perhaps except fell a tree) with my duo. For log splitting, I take a good whack with the hatchet, nice and center, then stand it up and use the flat sledgehammer side of…"
"We hit this with cooking for two on a calorie focused diet. We tend to put half directly in pyrex and store for the next day. You could do the same, but freeze them. Cook for 3 days and eat for 12. You may want to mix up the…"
"I enjoy cooking and I enjoy my alone time and I agree that cooking for one is tough.
You can cook for 2-4 people and use the leftovers for lunch or dinner another night.
Usually when I will be alone for some time I get good deli meats, some nice…"
"You can chase a single bit axe with wooden wedges to help in splitting. A maul, if your only task is splitting, will be better. If you want one tool that will let you split, do some felling and limbing - get an axe. A 3 or 4 lb head on a 30"…"
An axe is good for light stuff and for straight grained soft woods—much easier to swing than a maul. If you’re going to split hardwood or larger rounds with knots you’ll need a maul. If you’ve got really…"
So here's the deal. I have a big stack of logs that need splitting. I know that an axe is for chopping and a maul is for splitting. However, I have read that wood can be split with a regular axe and a maul is not always needed, depending on the size of the logs. The logs I have are not that big. They're branches that were cut off, so its not huge tree trunks or anything like that. My main question/dilemma is should I buy an axe or maul, or suck it up and buy both just to be safe? Any…See More
"I think that there's some truth to the essay, but I think that overthinking ways to reform that aspect of things can exacerbate that very problem. Trying to contrive artificial ways to get people to bond is exactly the kind of thing that…"
"I'd like to chime in to second this. I didn't believe that a crystal deodorant could possibly work, but I decided to give one a shot a few months ago after becoming tired of my clothes being ruined by antiperspirants.

"I see the change as less an elevation of political issues and more a lowering of traditional religious ones. If you look back to "the old days" when churches, to a large extent, were the communities in which people lived, communities…"
