landscape lighting

Turns out landscape lighting isn't too hard to install. I needed to buy a transformer, a timer, some lighting cables, waterproof lighting wire connectors, and then the lights [FX Luminaire SP] themselves.

A little bit of research and talking up the helpful sales manager at The Urban Farmer Store put me in the right direction.

I'm probably going to install some uplights too at some point to highlight a couple of trees. It's not a bad do it yourself project and I probably saved a thousand dollars or so doing it on my own.

Wiseman knives

Been looking for a nice pocketknife. These ones are made by Gene Wiseman. Didn't really need much more than a sharp blade, a bottle opener, and a flat edge screwdriver for the occasional tightening of that random screw. And I need all the wise I can get.
