    For me it was different, living out of contact with other people for days or weeks, after a time it made me appreciate them, longing really. Loneliness could get pretty extreme. Someone stopping by was exciting. When someone walked up the path to my house the atmosphere changed. It can make you sensitive to things that you might not be otherwise, a kind of alertness, sense moods in people, something going on when they aren't much showing it in a way that most people can tell. I think from that experience of them not being around, when they are you get the vibes that aren't diffused by other social activity. People show a lot if you can read it.

    Cool vid, Cory. I lived alone in the woods in Northern California for a number of years in a small cabin, off a little stretch of narrow road called Redwood Road. I did get lonely, but also found moments of inner peace and tranquility combined with the surroundings that I have never experienced elsewhere. Those moments still live inside me. I can easily recall the sound from the little creek that flowed along the bottom of the property, I'd lay in bed and go to sleep listening to it every night. I don't know if I would like to ever go back to living isolated like that, but i can sure understand someone wanting to and not thinking beyond that. There is a feeling to be found in a place like that you won't get elsewhere. Within and without, I guess could be said and as the song goes. That fellow has got it worked out.

    Very good explanation vid. Got shown that quite a few years ago by a guy loading furniture into a truck, but he was Asian, not English. Pretty consistently used all over by many many guys in my part of the world. I use it when loading my truck, but usually with just a single wrap and holding it in place so it doesn't slip until the bite and cinches down. Two wraps is good like you show.

    "Wrapping the logs". I saw what I thought was an interesting depiction in a falling manual that was showing ways to deal with hung up trees. The text is aimed at beginners and emphasizes the safest ways to do tree work, sometimes not even mentioning what a lot of professionals do. It was cautioning against sectioning down the hanger, I think what most of us use. The little character in the drawing had taken a number of wraps around the tree then taken the line back to his anchor point where he had a puller. Pulling the tree had it rotate and hopefully away from the one it was hung up in. Obviously limbs and such could inhibit success, and possibly a lack of expediency factor, but it seemed like a cool idea none the less.

    At least one type of shark, the larger embryos while still in the womb will feed on their siblings.

    I've always wondered what a spear shot into a big attacking shark would do. Would it deter their feeding ambition?

    There's been some diver deaths along the Cali north coast where the shark must have come out of nowhere. Two buddies diving and when one is facing away from the other for awhile then turns around, his buddy is gone except for a cloud of blood. A Great White probably. I dove those waters a lot for abalone. Never saw a shark myself, but I knew some people that did. One described a Great White that he saw as a couple fifty gallon drums leisurely kicking about. Often in murky waters with a long kick out from the beach, and a slow surface kick in with the heavy abs in a net within an inner tube in a Sea Lion's habitat. Often flopping about in the surge. I didn't much worry about sharks, must have been crazy. Sometimes wonder if one ever looked me over. Breaded and fried Abalone is mighty tasty though, and the big reds have a lot of flesh in them.

    Dave, I'm sure that there are reasons to live elsewhere, but would there be more musical opportunity for you if you lived in a place like Nashville?

    The shark gave him a look over, I think if it wanted to eat him it would have. Seems like he should have held off releasing his spear until the shark was really zeroing in, not turning away. I mean if some logic could prevail at such a moment.

    Aw...still hurting. It looks like "vilified" actors can still live the good life and put on weight, no effect on their caloric intake. A suggestion for Trump supporters to not purchase a ticket to any of her movies, doesn't seem a consideration. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jan/8/meryl-streep-denounces-donald-trump-defends-persec/ This might explain the bitterness: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/20KZdbs9IEo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Very cool lesson. It must have been a thrill to watch that bird come into sight and land.
