Needed to make the vines climb higher, yet somehow stay within the limits of my setup.

Solution: lower them and support them around a pole each time they exceed a certain height. I doubt it will be enough for long, but this trick is working.

Poles from Lee Valley, "cross-beam" support of my own imagination: pair of UV safe tie-wraps and some electrical tape. Just enough to support some weight, more of a guide. The pincer tip can be used to gently hold the coconut cord and hops.

Set your PVRs to record, Season 22 of BBCs Top Gear will air the "Special" today in the UK, and that will be an end of an era.  The great silly era the majority of the planet seems to have fallen in love with: three middle age men driving stuff and being caricatures of themselves.
Will miss that TG.

But let us hope these three have enough that charm left for something new.

Thanks BBC, been fun.  I hit Unsubscribe on Top Gear channel because it feels childishly apropos after seeing the last episode. (props to SkunkStream)
Wonder how fast your viewership will Unsub on YourTube ?

Thank you NY Times for writing the Epilogue on the ZPM Espresso machine.  Yes, I was an avid sponsor.  No, I don't think this will ever have a happy ending.

Soon to be made in Toronto, Canada, this the Helix folding bike made in titanium.  They are going to build it here and head to Kickstarter "Real Soon Now".
I like the 24 inch wheel, the titanium and the overall size.  The rest would need a detailed review.
