Be sure to remove explosives from you carry-on

I can’t think of any reason beyond “I forgot it was there” that isn’t bad; I await news of exactly what explosive and how much, and if he had detonators.

Nozzle, muzzle, whatever

Filipino police show their pistols after being taped on the nozzle by officers at police headquarters in Camp Crame, suburban Quezon city, north of Manila, Philippines on Tuesday Dec. 27, 2011

Seattle Times

The most interesting thing in the picture, to me, is that no two of the pistols appear to be the same. I know the Philippines are famous for making copies of firearms, but wouldn’t it be easier for the police to get a truckload of Glocks and provide armory services for the police?

Bill Siegle custom knife

I won this at the local GTG/MNG for The Site That Shall Not Be Named:
Bill Siegle custom

Very nice; not sure how I’ll carry it, but I’ll find a way. Last year, I won the top prize knife, as well; I think I’ll stop entering to let other people win.

At rest again, jigs attached

Left at ~0840, returned at ~2220; drove ~650 miles with a short layover at UltiMAK. Returned +2 kids, +1 bottle Pumpkin Ale, and tired. Time for some zzzzs.

The weather was highly variable, ranging from blinding sun to snow so thick I had to slow to ~35 over Snoqualmie Pass. There is a series of storms coming in; I hope the pass is bare and wet when I repeat this venture at week’s end.

Your locally-grown produce may have traveled quite a ways

Nils Peterson outlines some of the problems with mandating a solution:

Charlie’s has a processing facility in Seattle, WA. Consequently, a local head of lettuce might travel 350 miles to the Seattle processing facility, become shreds, and travel 350 miles back to UI, all the while consuming 3-5 days of its shelf life.

You should read his post about why this is true; it boils down to liability and produce volume. Local produce sounds good, but if it has to go to Seattle to become usable to your local consumer, I question if the goals are met.
