It had been a half quart a day. When a spike like this happens, I always suspect a neighbor is on vacation.

    The Lions defense sure fell apart in the second half. The Ravens got out coached and the players did not rise to the occasion. I did not want to see either KC or the 49ers in the Super Bowl. If Mahomes wins I would say that he soon could be the new GOAT.

    The most important time in my mind to make sure you are accurate with the cut length is when you are doing big diameter wood. If the round yields a dozen (or more) split pieces of firewood, you may want to spend the time to get it right or you will have lots of too long or too short pieces...

    I never had any luck with anything but an SDS bit hammer. Good advice on the side handle. Plus, I always orient my hands so that the fingers are away from the rotation. i.e., so your fingers open up if the hammer grabs. That has helped me quite often.
