Reupholstering an old Recliner into a Gaming Chair

I reupholstered an old recliner to a gaming chair. It was originally a Lane Comfort Queen recliner that a dog sat in for a number of years. I added speakers, new faux leather, and thicker foam. Still a few things to do: finish the front of the arms, add bluetoothe, and bass shakers. Thanks to my Brother, Becky, and Beno for all their help.

Help fight the Internet Blacklist Legistration

The Internet blacklist legislation—known as PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House—is a threatening sequel to 2010's Internet censorship bill, COICA. Like its predecessor, this legislation invites Internet security risks, threatens online speech, and hampers Internet innovation. Urge your members of Congress to reject this Internet blacklist campaign in both its forms!

The law calls for DNS filtering, which has not worked in China to stop piracy or censoring the net. It will create vulnerabilities in the DNS system and security holes.

Help Fight SOPA by contacting your member of congress or senator today.

Bottling my, "Apple Butter Brew."

It's 100% organic hard apple cider. At or around 12% alcohol, it's got a nice kick. It tastes like an apple orchard in a glass. Made from fresh pressed apple cider from Eastman's Orchard, just north of Goreville, IL; A jar of Sorhgum; and Yeast.
