Columbus was a monster. Less than a savage but someone with the blessing of a pope. Cursed be his name.


Maybe ol’ dad was on to something. Not all popes, cardinals , bishops, priests.. and nuns go to heaven.
But that is for another thread.

Many souls who claim they are not “ savage” , are often in denial of how brutal their thoughts and actions may be, though never perpetuating physical violence.

At least he knew He was Holy 😏. My dad used to say “ Christopher Columbus” when he got angry. I could never figure out what a dead man did that got him so po’d 😆.


Bahaha! Oh I'm loving your music tonight!!!!! That version of Nights In White Satin was beautifully done! The Haunting And Powerful one, I started listening to and it sounds awesome and inspiring for writing.

It would probably be excellent for fantasy writing. Have fun listening and writing.😊

Alright, I just got these pics from our Shed celebration. Who gave the squirrels beer?



And who dressed the animals up?

Ok people I need to come clean about something.

I didn’t take my disulfiram this morning (the medicine that causes severe nausea if I drink alcohol). The fatigue really returned hard, to the point that I could not even rest anymore. It has never before been that bad, maybe it builds up after many tries I don’t know. It was not living, it was not life. I am better now, since I didn’t take the med. I don’t even want to get drunk, I just needed to get away from that crushing fatigue.

But I said I would tell here at the shed beforehand, not just popping in some evening while wasted. It takes 1-2 weeks for the disulfiram to leave my system, then I don’t know what the f will happen.

Writing this is even harder than I thought, but I have to level with you on this one.

After all the support you have given me, after all the positive messages, I feel like I have totally failed you and I am completely ashamed of myself.

Hey chap! Sorry that I vanished on the thread as early as I did! Had a bit of work came in, then the weekend happened... heavily.



I hope you are well cody!

If the disulfiram is causing you fatigue Fin , maybe it’s best to discontinue. This does not mean you have to start drinking again, but even if you do... I won’t ever consider you a failure for having tried.

We’ve said it before and many of us will say it again.. we care about you whether you drink or not. You owe us nothing. It’s yourself that you owe anything to.

I’m sorry I’m not very good with words, but I really just wanted to say a few encouraging words .. and to let you know that you can still beat this alcohol problem without the disulfiram.

Oh good - I'm glad you're feeling better, Sheye. Sounded like you were in pretty bad shape there for a bit.

Things are OK here. We've got a fresh coating of 6-7" of snow from the weekend. That makes well over a foot in most places around here within the last week. My gruit is almost ready to bottle, and I'm making progress writing on Falling.

Sir Fin. I can obviously only speak for my self, so I will say this. My heart goes out to you and I will continue to do what ever little I can. You have not "failed" me and most importantly you have nothing to be ashamed of.
Please don't demean your self in this way, it only creates a down ward spiral that is hard to climb out of.
Now put one foot on my back and step on to the next person who volunteers and with a joint effort you will get to where you want to be.
Not me, not us, you.

Exactly the point I was trying to make when this discussion first came up of Fin wanting to quit. Feeling like a failure only aggravates the situation... which makes it more difficult to stay on the sobriety track.

Dear Fin,

Perhaps it is time to leave the disulfiram alone now. Technically speaking you have broken the alcohol addiction.

Obiously you will then have a choice to make when the disilfuram wears off in two weeks but that choice is yours to make.

You've been dry for around a month so that in itself is quite an achievement. I am proud of you. (I doubt I am alone in that sentiment)

Somebody mentioned Seether


Hi Shep, mondays are bad mmmkay.

Dear Fin, you have failed no one! We all have our faults and no one is perfect. We will still accept you as we always have drunk or sober. Your trying shows great strength and courage and that is powerful. Many have tried and failed a great number of times before finding success and then there are some who never do. We will continue to support you and enjoy your friendship no matter what.

I appreciate your honesty. You could have remained silent and kept things to yourself, but you honored us by coming here with your honesty and truth. I thank you for that!


The Shed is your enchanting home and we are your friends. Hugs!

True my dear friend, so happy to see you again! Please keep your snow. We have had our fair share this year and I am ready for Spring... open windows, green trees and grass, flowers sprouting, warm winds and song birds. Oh yes, I am so ready!
