Welcome back. I’d wonder from time to time about your absence hoping you were ok.

Hey namesake, good to see you back.

========

Voetstappen in het zand

Ik droomde eens en zie
ik liep aan ‘t strand bij lage tij.
Ik was daar niet alleen,
want ook de Heer liep aan mijn zij.

We liepen samen het leven door,
en lieten in het zand,
een spoor van stappen; twee aan twee,
de Heer liep aan mijn hand.

==========

You know I am hinting at a certain person Wink
Take it easy!

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Welcome back The Miller! So glad you’re able to return. As others have said, I’m hoping things are going better for you now.

You are right, apologies are not enough.

Now if you want to send me a bottle of that special elixir you make, that would be a good start. Wink

Welcome back!

Hey The Miller! Glad to read you!

Don’t worry about excuses or else… we all know there are more important thing in life then flashlights, and sometime you really have to focus on much more urgent matters, whatever it takes. And you’ve given so much!

I hope you are doing well.

I’m sure you’ll have fun seeing what great flashlights we had in the mean time. Power, high CRI, USB charging, 21700, aux leds… and Andùril. It has never been so much fun.

Welcome back! Wink .

Isn’t it Thanksgiving today? Well thanks should be given for all the nice replies, so thank you, heartwarming!

(I did make some wicked drink, seeing all the fallen, crushed during picking, half bird damaged, half wasp eaten and over ripe prunes from our old trees I dumped it all in big 85L buckets with some basic bread yeast, let it stand for a few days, sifted out the pits (distributed them around our grounds) and let it go for some more days, then filtered off all fruit remains and had happy chickens for days Smile the filtered stuff got a chance to ferment some longer and then I distilled the bunch to officially make cleaning alcohol, got a bunch of clear not bad smelling stuff that had a pungent alcohol smell to it. A second and third distillation grossed a nice amount to clean with and I took the liberty to capture one bottle at around 50% of liquid distillation during the third distillation ( for cleanest ethanol possible) and added some charred wood to it. As far as cleaning alcohol goes (distilling is not really legal for consumption I guess) it ages pretty nice and is truly unique. Felt dang nice to make something useful of the many kilos of otherwise waste we could not feed to chickens with all the pits and would have attracted rodents if placed in the compost, saving on vodka we used before for deep cleaning if a cat brought a catched snack into the house Wink

Glad to see you are back. Thumbs Up

This fermentation stuff sounds like a fun rabbit hole to go down.
I’ve heard distilled high proof alcohol can also be used to make medicinal tinctures from herbs and other things.

Welkom terug!

A new lantern sure is nice, but so is a gallon of homemade moonshine! I make beer for a hobby, but your “cleaning project” is high on my bucket list! Always magic to make your own spirits from nature.

Hope to see you around, no worries about the abscence. Nice to hear you’re okay Beer
