Woodworking column: Caveat Emptor
"Caveat Emptor" is a saying from old Rome. It's a clever old saw that means "Let the buyer beware!" I've always liked the line because it's so cool, but I've never paid any attention to it. But it's another lesson that Florida is teaching us.

From this Perch: Here's to Hope!
Lie: "a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood" (dictionary.com). Pretty clear, isn't it? One person says "That light was red" and another says "No, it was orange." If each is sincere, this is simply a disagreement and neither...

Woodworking column: How best to serve corned beef?
It's time here in Sarasota to celebrate St. Paddy's Day. We're not Irish, so we now feel perfectly safe serving our guests corned beef. Formerly we felt guilty because we thought we were faking our Irishness by serving it on the 17th. Then we learned (by wasting hours of time watching...

Woodworking column: Tips for traveling
What my Beautiful Wife and I learned on our 1,800-mile trip to Village des Pins, a resort in Florida: We learned that my grandma was right when she repeatedly averred that "All fools aren't dead." We figured that out on our seemingly endless journey through the Land of Lincoln, the...

From this Perch column: Run for the hills, bagpipes are coming!
"Want to go to a concert with me?", my wife asked recently. "What kind of concert?", I asked. "It's called 'Masters of Scottish Arts.'" Silence. "Does that mean bagpipes?" I asked. "Yep. Featured, in fact." Every once in a while you're asked to go along with something you may not...

Woodworking column: Farmers have good reason to whine
I've already written about my father's favorite farmer stories, about the three dogs who met in Whitehall every Wednesday. At noon they got hungry. One dog, just out of Waupun State Prison suggested that they steal a steak from Carl Schaefer's Butcher Shop. The farm dog said, "Nah,...
