be careful for nothing

The Field Lab - Sun, 2017/09/17 - 1:39pm
Philippians 4:5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.  6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

the good ol' days...

The Field Lab - Thu, 2017/09/14 - 3:31pm

Recently, my friend Steve Hills from upstate NY posted a photo of the view from his office from a carpentry job he is working on which prompted me to dig up this old photo of when he was helping me rebuild my house after my fire in Spencertown.  Note: My front porch back there was almost twice the size of my house here.  95,103,71,0,T

nuts...

The Field Lab - Wed, 2017/09/13 - 5:40pm
Unplanned trip to Alpine today.  The biting flies were driving Ben nuts this morning so I went to fetch another bottle of Permethrin.  The concentrate gets diluted and is applied with a spray bottle.  Ben has yet to learn that the spray bottle is his friend.  I have to chase him around to kill those pesky flies.  The good news is, fly season will be over in about a month.  95,102,58,0,B

Recover Yourself

The Field Lab - Sun, 2017/09/10 - 1:56pm
2 Timothy 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,  25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;  26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

the pesky algorithm...

The Field Lab - Sat, 2017/09/09 - 3:42pm
A lot of YouTubers have rightfully been on a rant lately about YouTube's new overly zealous politically correct algorithm that targets videos it deems "not suitable for all advertisers".  This began in early August after the ad-apocalypse that happened in March .  I just got the dreaded yellow dollar sign again on yesterday's upload.  This has happened on 4 of my videos now.  Two of them were released after I requested a manual review and my "skinning a rattlesnake" video is still barred from any further advertising revenue.  Every one of my videos is well within their Advertiser-friendly content guidelines  - but this new process has a twist to it.  Once a video is flagged by their system, they will not do a manual review (actually have a human assess the content) unless the video gets over 1,000 views in 7 days.  Hopefully, "how the day ends" will get reviewed and pass so I can make a few dollars off of it.  Stay tuned...  83,86,66,0,B

A neighbor down south of me just happened to bring a tractor out to work on his place over Labor Day weekend.  He had to fix the road before he could get past with his trailered rig.  86,90,65,0,B

Satan on the playa...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2017/09/03 - 4:45pm
Satan bagged one of many in style this year at Burning Man.  An attendee died after jumping into the flames from the festival's signature burning effigy last night.1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

sharper

Re shot the north 40 and finally got it right.  Was even able to make out my orange markers in the high resolution image and they were right where they were supposed to be.  You can't make them out in the top photo because it has been downsized for the web and cannot be zoomed in far enough.  Had another miss with the south 40 reshoot so I will try again tomorrow morning.  Seems I have yet to figure out the focus secret.  87,94,66,0,B

on closer inspection...

The Field Lab - Thu, 2017/08/31 - 4:17pm

Mapped the south 40 this morning and noticed a problem.  On closer inspection of the individual images, I found that the exposure and focus was off quite a bit.  Checked the images of the north 40 I shot yesterday and found the same problem.  Here is a comparison (the middle photos) of the first test I did and the mapping I did yesterday.  As good as the image is once all the pictures are stitched together (bottom photo of the south 40 I shot this morning), I might as well try to eek out a little more detail.  Looks like I will have to try a work around I found online and re map both missions.  If all goes well, I reckon I will shoot a tutorial video on the fix since there isn't one on YouTube yet.  87,91,60,0,B

making a mark...

The Field Lab - Tue, 2017/08/29 - 3:54pm
Getting ready to map my full 80 acres with the drone.  Decided to take a hike and mark my corners by GPS to see how they line up in the big picture.  I marked the easy spots by the road this afternoon. Going to do it in two missions with DroneDeploy...my original 40 acre tract and my two south 20 acre tracts.  Each mission will take a fully charged battery and produce about 200 photos.  86,89,69,0,B
