    You are embedding URL tags in between the YOUTUBE tags. That's never going to work.

    Here's your video.



    If you want to use the YOUTUBE tags, then you must only include the part of the YouTube URL which comes after the "watch?v=" — i.e. the "3aDXM5H-Fuw", in this case.

    The easiest way to embed YouTube videos is to simply go to YouTube, copy the entire URL from your browser's address field to your clipboard — not the shortened "youtu.be" link that YouTube itself presents on the page with the video — and then use the VIDEO tags — not the YOUTUBE tags, see image below — and paste the URL into the dialog box.

    Obviously one of my big inspirations is Mr Rogan, here is a great compilation of some of his better ramblings.

    This is a great list

    Ahh, didn't know the youtube tags don't work.. I think I got it figured out (the [url] tag was being put in automatically with the [youtube] tag)

    Hmm... That should not happen. It may be an artefact of our transition to https. We're going to have to look into that.


    Edit: I've just checked, and indeed, the YOUTUBE tags appear to be broken. We'll see what we can do to fix it, but best is to stick with the standard VIDEO tags for now — it's the easiest approach anyway.

    Why pay for a fence when you can build it your self?

    We do most of our own yard work and landscaping. I diverted part of our stream last weekend. I'm still sore. Gardening's next.

    very cool, I like landscaping projects, or did before the horses... now... its kinda pointless... hah, eventually I want to put in a "faux river" bed through my property to help guide the run off from the tropical storms we get a small river through our property during heavy rains, but that's what keeps my bamboo grove going so I wan't to keep it, but make it more aesthetically pleasing.

    Here's a good example of how much run off we can get:

    Just went and checked on the little guy, he won't hold still so we had to grab him for his shots... haha, I could only get some blurry pic as he wasn't too happy with us after the shots.





    We had to get creative with the wound dressing, used dry wall patch mesh; it breaths really well and allows for drainage.

    The pig got one thing off his bucket list.

    I like to look at the ferrets at the store, they're super cute. Their cages can smell pretty awful. But I guess when you're working with animals all the time you get used to all kinds of smells, eh?

    God that mongoose is cute. I'm melting right now.

    Mongoose and ferrets are different families, ferrets have a very musky smell, the mongoose didn't, it smelled like a cat (and acted like one too).

    I grew up with ferrets, they were fun but mostly mindles furr balls, mongoose are completely different and WAY smarter.

    oh, and ninja's; there's nothing in my room that he didn't get to explore, even the tops of closets... Eventually that's how we lost him as he jumped on top of a filing cabnet that was in the corner & fell (I guess) between it and the wall where there was only a little triangle of space and no way to get out ;(

    Best animal companion I ever took care of, we'd love to get a new one but the circumstances that brought us BahnTzu are very hard to re-create.


    I have today off, it' the centennial celebration of the USA buying the USVI from the Danes; there will be parades and parties and fireworks and the real life manifestation of white guilt as Denmark tries to apologize for something they did over a century ago (slavery)....

    But yesterday I learned how the welder works, so today I make my first (hopefully useful) thing! (then go party). (In this I am applying one of Joe Rogan's philisophical approaches to the work / play relationship.. I try to do at least one productive thing before I play, I try to EARN my time off, not just TAKE it).

    A mongoose is from the civet family and a ferret is from the weasel or mustelidae family. (skunk/polecat).

    well I didn't think it would take me 4 hours... but I don't really know what I'm doing fully so that's understandable... (and there were a few work stoppages in there)



    I used to tie this gate to the dead palm tree in the picture, the little black thing is what I made to today so we can remove the dead palm tree and turn that area into a land tortoise terrarium (oh, Did I mention I have 2 land tortoises also?)
