The season is upon us!  What’s your reason for the season?  Is there something in particular you’re excited for each year?  I think I always look forward most to the slow pace of life with work and even time off from work.  Everyone is expected to slow down and stay indoors with family for extended period of time.  I love that, and how that adjustment in behavior opens the door for new reflections into one’s life and purpose.

Neverwet.  This ain’t your momma’s waterproof stuff.  It’s super hydrophobic.  You can spray this on clothes, and they won’t get wet or dirty.  Spray it on steel, and it won’t rust.  THIS is the future.  Such a reduction in waste and maintenance!  Thing about how much less bridges would need to be repaired.  Think about how much less water we’d go through with washing our clothes.  So many applications.

This was part of a challenge this year to make something homemade for 5 people.  Adam’s always been a big Who fan.  Probably took 3 hours to design, build, and then glue.
