The kind-of-annual Christmas taffy pull

Most years we make vinegar taffy at Christmastime. Here’s a time lapse we did in 2015 and a few photos of pulls from the past.


Cold snowmobiling in Idaho

The high was 9 degrees F the day after Christmas. But when you have access to a snowmobile and sled for the afternoon, you go anyway.

YouTube videos I can watch repeatedly

Only rarely does a YouTube video get a second look from me. Here are a few that I can watch over and over:

Guy on a Buffalo –

The dad who says “better him than me” about his son’s bee attack –

Mullet Baby Sings –

Chris Thile and Brad Mehldau play Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright (Bob Dylan) –

Herp de Derp (by Schmoyoho, the guys that do Songify and Autotune the News) –

Somebody to Love – Queen cover by Nice Peter.

This great Indian song and video, Tunak Tunak Tun

This Indian kid dancing while his admirers stop and start the tape –

More to come as I remember. . .
