Stone wall reflections (audio)

On my walk through the Franklin Town Forest, I came upon an Eagle Scout project doing some trail work. That and the stone walls I find in these woods prompt the reflections as I think out loud and share my thoughts today.


"Before I built a wall I'd ask to knowWhat I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence."

3 quick things for today

A quick audio for today covering the 'Band of Brewers' bottling, PodCamp WesternMass coming along Apr 2, and my one year anniversary at John Hancock. Also interrupted by a hawk flying from tree to tree in the neighborhood.


The current 6 kettles that we took home to drink responsibly

  • Budman's best = A micro brewed Budwiser for those who need a born on date (blank)
  • Honey Snap Lager = A nice light bodied lager. It is crisp and smooth (H)
  • C U Latour Boch = ACBBD A nice chocolaty boch (C)
  • Off Kilter Scotch = Full-bodied & malty, a Scottish style strong ale (O)
  • Big heart IPA = Knock off of Bell's 2 Hearted IPA. Very aromatic & tasty (BH)
  • Emperor stout = Our Imperial style stout. Medium dry character (E)


Tickets for PodCamp WesternMass can be purchased through Eventbrite

And for today's photo, the amaryllis has given us much joy in its primary bloom but it is now declining rapidly...
