I Added More Feeding Tubes My Ice-Storm Damaged Tree To Supplement It IV.

by Anura Guruge



The IV I installed last week is working remarkably well — even though we had 3-days of below-freezing temps. Yes, the IV froze but there was enough room for expansion & it did NOT split. I was glad.

I didn’t do anything the last few days because of the frigid temperatures. The tree was essentially dormant.

But, today, the temps. finally changed. We were in the 50s (F). Per the weather forecast we are not expecting any below freezing temps for the next 10-days. So, I installed 3 additional feeding pipes. Simpler. Not IVs. They have ‘tree trunk’ nurients.

I also give this tree the BEST POSSIBLE natural fertilizer each night. Twice a night. I pee on it. Look it up. Has concentrated Potassium, Nitrogen & Phosphates. That is what the best fertilizers contain. I kind of knew this. Checked on it the other day. I am doing the right thing. I am doing the BEST thing. SMILE. I am also saving water.

The Jaguar XJS V-12 (1989) Comes Out Of Hibernation To Stretch Its Legs.

by Anura Guruge


It has been in hibernation, under covers, in our garage since last September — albeit, permanently connected to a ‘Schumacher SC1319 1.5 Amp 6V/12V Fully Automatic Smart Battery Charger/Maintainer’. I have three of these Schumacher chargers. I had had very good luck with them. The green light to say that the battery is fully charged has been flashing all winter. And it sure did start on first crank. Takes a bit to get a V12 to start, but it sure did.


Took it for two short spins with Teischan — given that it is HER car. It is going into storage, in Laconia, on Tuesday. It will stay there for 2-years. Teischan will be old enough to drive it then. Stay tuned.

“Rowen”, Our Newfies, First Easter.

by Anura Guruge


Water does not scare her, BUT she is still curious.

Will NOT drink from streams or lakes! Will sniff it … will pee in it, BUT will not drink. Only drinks from bowls or from a hose. That will sure change.



125-days old. That is 4-months & 5-days. Getting big. We have had her just over 9-weeks. She has changed our lives! Great dog. Lot of fun.

Forget what folks tell you about Newfies. She has become a GREAT walking dog. She, furthermore, enjoys her walks now that she has got it figured. Walks 4-miles with me every morning. She is FINE. She is getting STRONG.

So, why don’t I post more pictures of her. It is very difficult for I to get pictures of her! She is always so close to me. If I stop she is all over me. Standing up. Same at home. So, I have to rely on others.
