Quotes

In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all - security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.
-Edward Gibbon (1737-1794)

tool jackstraws

problem:
Plethora of long-handled yard tools urgently needing an organized storage system in my new shop.

solution:
The thrift store I worked in had a regular flow of futon bed/couches that frequently went unsold even at ridiculously low prices. I would put them back out at ‘raw material prices’ and politely wait a few days before buying them for The Fixer’s inventory. This grid was custom-fitted into an unused corner with upper and lower parallel-bar-frames intersecting to separate long-handled tools.

It is stuffed now (I may add that picture later), but each and every one of them are easily accessible, rather than being in the middle of a pile of jackstraws.
