Senior Management and I kept the holiday seasons packed with activities & projects.

Yearly, my family has made fudge for as long as I can remember.  We use frozen marble slabs & fudge at 232 degrees (F).  The rest of the recipe is a secret.

These slabs are often frozen in our freezers at home but we’ve also frozen them while camping by setting them outside in cold but dry weather.  Senior Management and I are perfecting & modifying the family recipe for some new twists on this slab fudge in the midst of our other holiday & winter events.

Here is a video of the process:

In addition to the fudge making, we decided to put new flooring in our house.  After living in our house for a little over a year, we’ve noticed that the carpet (original 1978) retains more allergens than we like.  We’ve had plans to replace the carpet but bumped the schedule up to take better care of our health.  We installed a caramelized bamboo strand flooring.  It is impressive stuff.  A sample piece of the material can stop a bullet from a hand gun so we know it will last & be easier to clean than our dingey old carpet.  This project has caused me to rework my shop & tools.  This necessitates changes with storage & other items before the last touches are added to the jPod.  I have many scraps of the bamboo flooring and am trying to think of a way to include them in the jPod.  Below are some photos of the flooring project.
