Knife nuts thread v2.0


christain: I wish mine had sound. If I could see the flame, feel the warmth---and hear crickets and distant thunder---lights out.----McM May 11, 2021 16:29:25 GMT
chatarracrow: We have a nice LED fireplace that changes colors. In the morning I turn it light blue and get a little beach water window. May 11, 2021 4:55:09 GMT
christain: I've got one of those TV screen fireplaces that blows out warm air. Got it in our bedroom right below the real TV. It's nice on a cold winter night. Puts us right to sleep. Dogs and cats like it too! :D May 10, 2021 17:23:44 GMT
chatarracrow: The best I have is bringing my camping stove out and having a fire on one of the apartment rebar grills. Otherwise I have two nice LED lanterns that give off a good enough fire look. May 10, 2021 16:56:29 GMT
RufusScorpius: Yes. We don't need "therapy" or "programs" (not that men have access to any). All we need is some quiet time with a few trees, maybe birdsong and the warm sun in our face. That's all it takes to level the brain. May 10, 2021 14:18:18 GMT
christain: The part about 'balance our thoughts and emotions' is totally true. Between work and worries, a man needs some time just to sort out the details and calm down. Too much stress in life. It'll get to you if you don't do SOMETHING. May 10, 2021 13:49:49 GMT
RufusScorpius: I know for me I never get enough opportunities to wash off the stink of civilization and go back to my roots in nature. That's what men need to balance our thoughts and emotions. May 10, 2021 12:54:28 GMT *
RufusScorpius: This opens another entire discussion about men's mental health, which is completely neglected by society as an actual "thing". Sometimes a man just needs a walk in the woods, a fire (with a hunk of meat cooking), and a brew to clear the head. May 10, 2021 12:51:55 GMT *
christain: Sitting by a fire and having a few brews is when I've done some of my best thinking...AND cried quite a bit. Looking up at the stars on a cold, clear night has a way of putting life in perspective. May 10, 2021 12:04:44 GMT
RufusScorpius: Beer and a camp fire is good for the soul anytime, any season May 10, 2021 10:33:48 GMT *
chatarracrow: We're having mules at our computers. I have LED lanterns we can turn on tho. Hopefully well be in a better place in a few months. May 10, 2021 4:43:29 GMT
christain: Oh well...I settled for a bowl of my wife's beef stew and a big glass of tea while sitting by the fire pit out in the back yard. That's about as close as she wants to get to camping. :D May 10, 2021 3:56:36 GMT
chatarracrow: Beer and fire in the woods would be nice right now. May 10, 2021 3:18:29 GMT *
christain: I know I can get a keg. I attended many a 'kegger' out in the woods by the lake way back in the day. Cold beer, warm nights, hot girls. Ahhh....memories. May 10, 2021 2:46:41 GMT
christain: My store usually has my brand of beer pretty cheap, even at regular price. When it's on sale, I stock up. I'm thinking about getting a keg, but I don't know where to have it filled around here. May 10, 2021 2:43:50 GMT
chatarracrow: My local grocery has good beer on sale so I get a nice amber ale. May 10, 2021 2:33:01 GMT
christain: I may even splurge on a half-pint of good Scotch. Yeeeaaahhh... :P May 8, 2021 9:13:10 GMT
christain: Another 'no sleep' night. Rolling and tossing and turning. And I'M OUT OF BEER...DANG IT! B-| Oh well, I have money and it'll be daylight soon. ;) May 8, 2021 9:09:11 GMT
