Had my mother-in-law over to make some sausage. She was born a month after her parents got off the boat from Lithuania. I've been asking her for years to show me how to make the family recipe for sausage.

Here's the finished product. It is a white sausage flavored with all spice and boiled. Pretty pleased with the results.

Some pictures from this weekend:





This coffee place 'The Mill' in Lincoln,NE. It is the less hipster of lincolns two coffee shops. I really like the other place as well, but there's only soo much time for coffee in a weekend.



did a little thrifting too on the way home:







Shallow arc's on some '39109 0217' (lined 550's from what I could tell) I bought for my dad.

I didn't take many pictures really , but yesterday I drove out to Denver to listen to Aaron Draplin talk about life,design,et cetera. In case you're unfamiliar : in addition to being one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, Aaron is responsible for http://fieldnotesbrand.com" rel="nofollow - Field Notes and a ton of graphic design work you'd probably recognize.

Here's a picture I took while we ate Mexican food with him.



It was cool, the talk was at the Denver Art Museum. So we got to see quite a bit of the museum before the show as well.  Tried to take in some thrifting on Colfax, but everything was closed or picked through so no real finds.

I did buy this hand-knit zip-up cowichan in North Platte though. Fits a touch bigger than 'perfect', but I love it so much :

been a while since i last updated but today i finally made a long awaited trip to a new local store called http://www.facebook.com/tuckshopsundrysupplies" rel="nofollow - Tuckshop & Sundry Supplies . situated in a very culturally rich area unique to singapore, you will see that it is along the same stretch as one of the most important mosques in singapore. while it is an area with a rich heritage, sometimes it is inevitable that in a small but fast growing city, you see a but of modernisation in the area as well.

TSS stocks brands like Mister Freedom, Dry Bones, Iron Heart, Red Cloud & Co, Railcar Fine Goods and of course also the Obbi Good Label leather goods. what caught my eye mostly was the californians. might pick them up in a couple of months pending funds but they are definitely a really attractive pair.

at the end of this street you see the sultan mosque


small businesses growing into culturally rich areas are inevitable with the lack of space in singapore


mister freedom packaging is ace


californians


road champs


who doesn't like some good packaging?


iron heart shirt with some great texture


silverware


great snakeskin wallets

Mr, and Mrs F, hereby voted best couple on the board.
 
Cowichan, I didn't realize they had a name.  Kind of an odd one, I wonder what the etymology of it might be.  Lands End Canvas had a nautical themed one this winter.  I considered it, but I just couldn't justify another sweater.

Yesterday my jeans took the day off from work and went to Presque Isle peninsula in Erie PA.  Forecast was for temps near 80, but the lake is still 43 degrees, so the wind coming out of the north across the lake made things chilly!  The two beach umbrellas we bought to block the sun wound up being used to block the wind.  Things were calm for about an hour and I could take my denim jacket off, the rest of the time I was bundled up.  Still, was nice to hit the beach in March and get some sun.  NWPA gets the second least amount of sunny days in the US, so we appreciate every one we get!

Mexican Sprite (sugar rather than corn syrup) we stumbled across at Wal-Mart.  Not a huge Sprite fan, but I liked it.

My Jack Knife jeans and my wife just got back from hiking around Big Sur. Starting to get some subtle signs of wear. Sorry, no pics. My relatively new camera took a dive, cracked and will be headed back to Edison, NJ to the Fuji camera hospital to get it repaired. This coming week we are off to Joshua Tree to met an artist and to hike in the park.

Hanauma Bay:







Then to Waikiki. On the main drag, Kalakaua ave, the poshest stores are clustered along the western edge near the hotels that cater exclusively to a Japanese clientele. The people-watching here can be extraordinary. Near dusk, wealthy Japanese families materialize seemingly from thin air in their finest and costliest apparel. The mothers head towards Tiffany, Cartier or Prada at the very western end of the avenue. Their daughters venture farther east to the specialty boutiques and the Duty Free mall. Salaymen husbands wind through the maze-like specialty malls to Pipeline Leather or Western Classics to try on White's boots, Redwings or hellishly over-priced vintage denim at Spark. The best place to step into the fray is at  http://www.88tees.com/index.php" rel="nofollow - 88 tees . A T-shirt from 88 tees is apparently one of the most sought after items fashionable, well-to-do Japanese teenage girls can return from the islands with. The store itself is rather unassuming, just a tiny door to one side of a Cold Stone Creamery with a few small signs pointing up a staircase. The upper windows are painted black and show no interior view from the sidewalk.
 The smallish shop upstairs is always a mad-house, with hoards of teenage girls pawing through the tightly packed aisles of printed and bejeweled t-shirts. On the street Japanese teenagers rarely acknowledge non-Japanese folk, and will almost never make eye or body contact. In 88 tees all bets are off, however. A 75 pound Japanese girl in a Tori Birch dress will body check you right out of the way to gets the last black metal-studded Yaya hula girl T-shirt in size Xsmall. They still won't look you in the eye though.
 They have an extremely strict no photography policy which has been killing me for years. Finally I talked the owner, who is awesome but very hard-core, into letting me take two photos of her, and I also snapped one illicit photo of the interior sign over the door as I exited. 







I'm going to make every effort to make 88 tees popular with denim heads, for perversity's sake alone, and to that end a few denimbros should keep an eye on their mailboxes in the weeks to come.

The dolls are promotional items from United Airlines from the '60s & '70s. Very collectible, something like the Buddy Lee dolls, which 88 tees also had a good collection of, but everyone's seen those. The male doll was called "Aloha Ted", I think. You see them a lot around the islands still.

Wednesday-Fri in Joshua Tree. Can't wait to go back and camp next month.




Stayed at the Joshua Tree Inn. This is where the "Father of Country Rock" Gram Parsons died in room 8 in 1973, the same room where we stayed. Some have made it into a bit of a shrine. 




This shrine is right outside his door.


Lots of mellow folks like to hike in the park and then come back and sit out on their front porch, enjoying tequila, telling stories around a fire and watch the stars. JT is a pretty magical place. .

On the way up to my friends house. What a welcoming sign!

We went to visit my Grandparents yesterday.  It’s hard when your grandparents get older. This could very well be the last time I get to spend any time with my Grandmother. Although that part of it was very sad, it was so great to be with them and to see her. My grandparents mean a lot to me. Growing up we’d visit them or they’d visit us pretty often. They’ve been married almost 62 years. It’s amazing to me, 62 years! They love each other so much. 


I took more pictures of our weekend, but they don't really make any kind of sense.

Changing priorities tg, sounds like you're enjoying life too much now to completely obsess about denim. It's a good place to be.

Of course they're still APC though and not New World own brand denim, you can't let standards (pun intended) slip completely!

today my jeans and I were finally able to transform my bicycle into the touring/commuter bike I've been after for a while now. Ever since I did my first big ride last summer (during the roy tour) I've wanted to have a more relaxed upright riding position. I've definitely found that. Its lots of fun, but you wont set any land speed records when the wind is blowing in your face.

So I took matters into my own hands and decided it was time these chinos got a working. I went ahead and mowed, and edged the yard and our back alley.


Found this stuff, there goes the neighborhood I guess*

But after that trauma I managed to get the grass mowed.

* -- it is hemp, or 'ditchweed'. :D

I think if a person was really hard up they could probably smoke it, but it grows all over apparently, and the city and state come by and spray for it quite a bit.

All of that Lustre-wear/Jadeite has been going up sky-hi for sure.  I used to see pieces here and there for 2-3$ a piece.  These days I am seeing place settings go for 25-30 in some shops.  I blame ebay.

Over the holiday week I went to my gf's home state of Idaho. While we were there we went to Celebration Park. It is Idaho's first geologic park, formed by the Bonneville flood which revealed the huge basalt boulders, some of which were carved with ancient petroglyphs.
There is an old railroad bridge converted to foot traffic and it is a classic example of the high desert environment to be found here and in nearby Oregon.

so this is actually a "where did my jeans go over the weekend" post.

my band was invited to play the Pickathon Festival in Happy Valley Oregon (20mins east of Portland.)

it was probably the most fun I have ever had.

we camped out the whole time and tents were provided by the event organizers. We got free food, beer, "medicine", and got to hang out with some of the nicest people i've ever met.



in the lavatory

pickathon main stages.

Bombino from west africa. they were amazing.

we went to the people's museum in manchester today - i'd hoped to see some old workwear and shit on display, but in the end was too fascinated by the old union & political banners & posters to notice... so i ended up with just photos of them. all good though.

Nice banners! I think my Granddad was probably a member of two of those Unions/Societies. The Typographical and the Letter Press. Although not the Manchester branches. He was a type setter for a newspaper before and after WW2. During the war he was an RAF mechanic working on Spitfires and Hurricanes.

the banners aren't all from manchester- I think its the national archive for trade union banners, so they're from all over the place. I've developed a strange interest in them recently  (hence the visit I guess).

Love the Enfield Bullet.  I almost bought one back in '99.  Light blue metallic 500.  Had the money lined up, sat on it a few times, then an unfortunate circumstance erased my largesse, and stuff just keeps getting in the way since then.  I also had visions of how I could import one of the Indian market diesels.  I figured just import the motor and call it a stationary power plant (no lengthy and expensive emissions and safety proofs) and swap motors in a donor runner.  That never happened either.
 
 
Where's the Union Banner Painters Union banner?

Started school on Wednesday.


I'm preparing in class, to take the FAA exams to become an AMT.  I'll eventually be working in a setting like this.^

but for right now, it's a lot of remedial math, powerpoints, bad jokes, and tired old adages such as 'Safety is no accident'  as well as :


BUT. It's a solid 6-7 weeks before I touch anything from a plane, or use any tools outside of a Starett rule (precision ruler) and a calculator.  LAME.

I am posting these to demonstrate why I was not able to attend Denimbruin.  Plans were made months before Denimbruin was announced to fly to Spain.  I brought one pair of jeans and the first time I put them on upon arriving at our hotel in Barcelona, the top button popped off.  I did get some wear from the pair of Levi X Filson tincloth five-pocket pants I bought from Mr Randal though.  But given the heat, most of the time I wore shorts.  i hope I won't be banished from the brotherhood.

Tapies Foundation



Pavilion designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1929 and recreated in the 1980s



Cathedral in Girona north of Barcelona.  This picture only shows a few of the steps.



Ironwork in a stairwell at a Cistercian monastery in southern Catalonia called Santa Maria de Poblet



Modernisme urban winery in Montblanc



The city of Valencia has the best market I have ever visited



and the best paella.  This is a variation called arroz negro made with squid and squid ink



This is part of the Calatrava designed Ciudad de las Sciencias y las Artes that is helping to bankrupt the region



We stayed with friends at their house in the mountains.  The area had been ravaged by forest fires that fortunately spared this outhouse.  Luckily it has been preserved solely for sentimental reasons.

Great photos.

Personally i was surprised that, even tho it's a reconstruction, the Mies Van de Rohe pavilion still has an amazing vibe, if you get a chance to sit there undisturbed.

No Gaudi - not a fan?

So, too many Japan photos to post here, also theyre mostly on Facebook. But this is the nipper outside his pod in Kyoto.



The first day I got back I was a bit depressed at the mess and the obesity around my home. But I cheered up quick. You don't really get this in Japan...

Finally home after a busy weekend.  If you follow me on instagram, you've seen these photos before.  

Didn't know what to do Friday night so I said, "let's go to Waldamere" (amusement park in Erie PA).  Just planned on taking pictures and maybe having some fries, but wound up riding a bunch of rides.  Wish we'd spent more time there this summer.  Beautiful little park, and I forget how much the rides make me smile... that is until they make me sick.  Don't have the stomach I did 20 years ago!

LVC 506 and Warehouse 700 in the "skinny mirror".  Reminded me of the tall slim cowboys in the old Levis adds in the 30s.

Finished the night, and setteled my stomach, with some Luchetti's pizza.  My favorite, with it's wonderful greasy cheapness.

Saturday we went to Erie's airport, Tom Ridge Airfield to see the Commemorative Air Force's P-51C and see the traveling educational trailer about Tuskegee Airmen. I bored the shit out my girlfriend with information about P-51s....

Then, we made the trip on Rt 5 to Conneaut (pronounced Connie-yaut) Ohio to White Turkey,  a little family drive in that's been in business since the early 1952.

Hadn't ate all day, so i gorged on the Large Marge, Onion Rings, half my girlfriends french fries, a root beer, the Super Ed, and a little bit of the banana split the girls got. About 11 that night, I was digging around the medicine cabinet for the antacid.

Beautiful '65 Vette we saw parked out back.

Hit my mother's, mother's side of the family's reunion this afternoon.  Didn't take any pictures of it.  Afterwards, went to the Crawford County Fair, the largest county fair in PA.  Started yesterday with an Alan Jackson concert, will end next Saturday night with a demolition derby (I'll be there!).

That p-51 is pure sex.

Our school owns a v-12 Rolls out of a p-51.  When I move on to powerplant (about a year), we get to wrench on, and run it on a test stand. I can't wait!

I like Gaudi, but so do the thousands of tourists disgorged by the cruise ships docked in the harbor.  The lines at all his buildings were extremely long, so we went to less busy places (like the Mies pavilion).

Nice pics, Setterman!

^ Setterman, that looks like loads of fun! Demolition derbies are only trumped by the dreaded figure eight race, the demo-race hybrid.

I didn't have to go straight from work to school today so I work my left field deep indigo chinos.

some iphone shots from class today

asking people you barely know to take your picture with a camera phone is odd


we actually got out into the shop today.  Here I am in front of the Cessna 172 (I think that's right, still learning my planes)



In class today we learned a few knots for tying down airplanes when you are unable to park them in a hangar.  Here my buddies are practicing the Bowline knot.

yea, our teacher was showing off.  He can tie both the bowline and more impressively a square knot one handed.

My Jack/Knifes and I went to the Good Guy's 26th West Coast Nationals today. There were some truly fantastic pieces of automotive art on display. It was the biggest turn out I've ever seen. Stayed 4 hours and still missed a whole load of cars.

It's really hard to get pictures of whole cars because they park 'em so close together and there are so many people. So, here are a few of my favorite detail shots.

Extra points for anyone who can spot the odd one out?
