I love learning to cook. I even love the mistakes I make. Might I be so bold as to declare that I am more fond of my mistakes than my triumphs?

First, I just want to whine a bit. I'm not used to hard physical labor. Let me tell you that moving a 12' x 6' x 4' pile of wood chips to various places in the yard is hard work!

Hi! My name is Dave, and I am a nerd wannabe. There. Admitting the problem is the beginning of the solution! I feel so much better, but, no doubt, you are confused.
