couple shots

6 posts in this topic

I haven’t been able to get out shooting much lately. I have started making maple syrup and it has taken what I had left for my free time and turned it into work. The results have tasted fantastic though.

The results.

Wow! Good for you. My maple tree is just oozing with sap this year, so it crossed my mind. I looked out one cold morning and there was an icicle hanging from the tree. I couldn't figure out what caused it, until it started dripping again later in the day. I stuck a bucket under the drip, but didn't give in to the impulse yet. My 6 year-old grandson and I just finished making three batches of mulberry jelly instead from the berries we picked and froze last summer.

Mmmmm, maple syrup! There's a woman just down the road from us at the lake cabin who spends the spring tapping the threes and boiling down maple syrup in a huge cauldron on an outside fire.

Nice shots, Dave.

What makes them different colors?

I am not sure what causes the difference in color. I think the lighter stuff is supposed to be a better grade and might have a better sugar content…. less boiling time to turn it darker?

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
