Have a Merry Christmas!


I’ve made a lovely (and strange) video concerning Kmart closing. Join me on what might be my last visit through this iconic store . . . memories and feelings will be evoked.


My Best Homemade Eclipse Glasses


Okay, I stepped things up a notch. These are my new solar eclipse viewing glasses using the tried and true soot on glass technique of days gone by. I made these using a neighbor’s old glass lenses. Actually, when I am done, I’m pretty sure they will clean up perfect…not that I would ever wear them (they are pretty big). And, this video tutorial is only 40 seconds long. Enjoy!

Easy DIY Solar Glasses


These glasses are so easy to make and they’re just like Grandma made in her day. Well, at least they are like what my grandma made. I don’t know about you, but around here, solar glasses are sold out. I’m too cheap, I wouldn’t buy any anyway. I’d rather watch the eclipse online than fork out a few buckaroos for something I’ll only use once. But, now, with my handy looking glass, I can catch a glimpse of the eclipse myself! Check out the tutorial here.
