Musings from a modern Father:alpinmack

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 19:30:20 +0000

As I write this, sitting on my porch enjoying the breeze and gazing at the community garden that my wife and I have worked so hard on, my two sons are shooting me relentlessly with nerf guns. My wife hates guns, and yet they remain. Oh, there are no bullets. They got them at a […]

This past fall, I worked for the title sponsor (Grand Dynamics International) of the Ultimate Towner obstacle course race to build and run two of their races on the East Coast. One in Lake Placid up in the Adirondack Mountains, and one in Syracuse, New York. This was a blast.  Basically the race is 4 […]

I am currently reading the Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones) by George R.R. Martin and decided to do a bit of an experiment. You see, people have been recommending that I read the books, or at the very least watch the show on HBO for a while now. I normally like […]

Morbid Children’s Rhymesalpinmack

Ring a ring a rosie A pocket full of posie Ashes, ashes, We all fall down! Innocent enough children’s rhyme, right? Hold hands and dance around in a circle before falling to the ground and giggling. Yeaaaa!!!!! No. Like many children’s rhymes, songs, and poems, this particular rhyme contains a hidden meaning. In medieval Europe, […]

Secret Traveller “cant” … the language of Scottish tinkersalpinmackBetsy Whyte

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 12:17:10 +0000

I recently read “The Yellow on the Broom” and “Red Rowans and Wild Honey” by Betsy Whyte. (Bonnie wee Scottish lassie, isn’t she?) Bessie, as she answered to when she was a wean, writes her memoir of her childhood in the 1930s as part of a family of Scottish “traveller” people. Tinkers. Mist People. Gypsies. […]

“The Hobbit” movie review… from a nerdy traditionalist perspectivealpinmack

Sun, 20 Jan 2013 18:47:20 +0000

So I finally got to see Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” movie last night in all its 3D high frame rate glory. The verdict? Terrible… with some shining good points. But Dan, you say, I thought you loved JRR Tolkien and the Hobbit? Yes. Yes I do. Why do directors/screenwriters feel the need to mess with […]

Here are some more of the tribal-style designs I’ve drawn over the years. I’ll add that you are free to use these as you will for personal use, but if you intend to make money off them, please give me my due. And if you actually get one of these tattooed on you, I want […]

Well, finally got a smartphone. I imagine that this will affect the frequency and quality of my subsequent posts. I’ll try not to dumb it down too much.

How to: re-glaze windowsalpinmackIMG_2401Pushing in a glazing pointGlazing Smoothing glazingIMG_2408New Glazing

Continuing my DIY series, I’ll show you how to re-glaze old windows. Step 1: Remove the old glazing. I’ve found that a sharp paint scraper will do the trick. If you must, use an old chisel you don’t care about because there is sure to be metal glazing points buried under there just waiting to […]
