chaps and pink chainsaws/ protective clothing for chainsaw carving

As others have said leather won't do the job. I've had extensive training with one of the top chainsaw instructors in the country and leather was never mentioned as a choice . I cut for over 40 years with nothing but luck on my side , but now wear chaps as part off my PPE . I heat with wood and also provided disaster response to hurricanes, tornado's and ice storms that all brig down the trees through my job that I retired from today. as a side note chaps will not work with an electric chainsaw because of the constant torque . there's lots of good info on utube too!

pink chaps!

Makerfaire Paris 2017, green bobine; Cyrille Prunet; HDPE bottle lids into sheet

Les passionnés d’impression 3D ont également pu apprécier le BB8 de Cyrille Prunet présenté sur le stand de e-motion Tech au milieu des MicroDelta et autres imprimantes 3D. Toujours dans le domaine de l’impression 3d, l’ECOsetmachine a également connu un énorme succès. Cette machine incroyable permet de recycler tous vos plastiques PEHD pour en faire du filament pour imprimante 3D. Des projets similaires se répandent depuis quelque temps, mais la qualité du fil produit par ECOset est impressionnante et les Maker ne s’y sont pas trompés. recycling

Gem corn, Black pearl mini corn, Purple+White glutanous corn, Albino corn 2017

Gem corn, Black pearl mini corn, Purple+White glutanous corn, Albino corn 2017

Experimental garden 2nd edition: gem corn, black pearl corn, purple+white glutaneous corn, Albino mutation (1); peanuts from Congo. Bamboo. ( I noticed my flowering cactus and peaches on vine are both missing... )

This year, I have planted Gem corn, Black pearl mini corn, Purple+White glutanous corn

gem corn : 59 stalks germinated, 
given away some for friends to test in various places all in France.
Dordogne 10
Creuse : Bernard 2, Caroline 2, Maylis 2, Marinettes son 2, Danielle 2
Cergy Pontoise : 6  (Jeanne 2, Karine 1, Diane 1, Emilie 1)
Rest : will go to Aubusson

total: 86 germinated sprout, (about 10 either broken or died half way in the pod) about 3 did not germinate.  Small seeds germinated quicker and stronger, grows faster, bigger

gem corn germinated 97% from the stock of 8 plants in 2015 (8 plants from 100 seeds)
mini size grains germinated faster and grew stronger too! (surprise)

In 2016, 100 seeds all germinated.  But lack of care, no visible results.

8 sprouts planted in one section of the garden w very shallow clay dense soil.  
Of the 8 plants, one is an albino!  (Maybe I will transplant that to a special pot by itself)


According to researchers, albinos will die, unless you feed it sugar water through its leaves!!


purple+white glutanous corn from Beijing - of 30ish, only one germinated


Black pearl mini corn, purchased from Taiwan wet market for ordinary consumption germinated 3 out of over 200 seeds.  All germinated seeds from presoaking and rinsing in seed tray, I checked to see that there are white roots coming out,  then planted in little pods.  Only one has green sprouts so far.

3 germinated out of 100 seeds:
top: small sprout, middle: mold growing on seeds (dead), bottom: longer sprout

Beams hand - Erasmus Rotterdam 2017 june 21

In the garden of the Schieland house is a 3D printed image of Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536) from Wednesday 21 June. The image is a tribute to one of Rotterdam's most famous citizens. The 3D-printed Erasmus is a replica of Erasmus's well-known image of Hendrick de Keyser, which is located at the Grotekerkplein next to the Lauren church. From 1945 to 1963 this picture was temporarily on the square for the Schieland house. The image was created by the company 3D Robot Printing, located in the Rotterdam Innovation District. Erasmus is internationally renowned and its thinking is still very up-to-date. Sander de Iongh from Rotterdam Partners: "The Erasmus statue is huge. There we should be more proud of that. With the placement of the image opposite the Rotterdam Tourist Information we hope to contribute here. We hope that many tourists, for example, by making pictures will further extend the connection between Rotterdam and Erasmus. "

3D Robot Printing.

The image was located in the Merwe-Vierhavens, part of the Rotterdam Innovation District. The collaboration was established thanks to Gilbert Curtessi of SuGu Warehouse, a creator and design ecosystem, also located in the Innovation District
