Temps in the teens this morning, while those in N Indiana and across the middle states are calling out the snow crews, here in the Winter Wonderland, weírE still wondering...grass still showing. Some sun today too. One day closer to Spring, no snow, is fine for me. Glad Iím not making payments on a big Diesel Super Duty with a wedge wonderplow. Ever notice how all those diesel owners love to let them sit idling and stink up where ever theyíre sitting? I always see those rigs as an indication of the inverse of the owners self esteem.

The Great Lakes shipping season is coming to a close. The SOO locks are closing Tuesday for their winter maintenance and a good number of the lakers are coming to winter layup moorings. Lots of ice chunks on the Duluth Canal Cam this morning and one load of iron ore pellets left earlier. http://www.duluthharborcam.com/p/canal-park-cams.html

Coffee, hash brown taters and scrambled eggs this morning, some of Mikeís Chorizo for those with an iron constitution and bacon and breakfast sausage for those of us with challenges in that respect. Enjoy the day, all.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Karl, I'll take one of each, thank you very much.

It turned out to be an ugly day yesterday. Unexpected, clouds and cold wind ruined the day. Topped off by a loss of my team in the playoffs. Next year!

Plan is to hit the workbench today and finish setting up the 3D printer.

Have fun,
Mike

Freezing drizzle and fog this morning. Hitting the road in a moment, the Doll has a doc appointment at 0900 on the far side of Lansing.

Everyone have a good day.

Morning

Rick thanks for the coffee.

Mike for breakfast.

Weather in South Jersey sunny/31. Near 40 later!

Not sure what's on the agenda today but some bench time later.
Seeing I had to take all the hinges off the doors and start over.
Made a big mistake. Oh well live and learn.

Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning Crew! Well, we just got back from a couple of weeks in Argentina - beautiful place! Saw Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia, Iguazu Falls, penguins, and Buenos Aries, of course. Came back to "nothing is the same!". Dog had to be put down a week into our trip (no one told us so as not to ruin our vacation - she was sick but we hoped she would make it), son announced his wedding date in June, and youngest daughter moved into uni (we knew about this of course). All of a sudden the house is very quiet.....
Hope everyone had a good holiday.
Cheers,
Dave

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Peppers are ready to go.

Mostly cloudy and temps in the low 40's here in Joisey today.

Dave, sounds like a fun trip and my condolences in regards to your dog.

Jerry, sounds like something I've done many times.

Mark, hope the back feels better soon.

Got an early start today and had some blood taken.
Figured I'd go early and it would be less busy.
Wrong!

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Good morning! Off for 3 days, appointment with the cat today for his checkup.

Still kicking water tower plans around. I also bought a 1/35 fish from Fichtenfoo. It may work in 1/48, hopefully hanging buy a boom on a turn of the century water front.

Clouds and ice prevail again in Michigan. We made it on time to the doctors office yesterday only to find out they were running 30minutes behind. The Doll ended up with a little chunk of her ear excised. Thanks to her hairdresser for seeing something different and advising her. The anesthetic shot wore off about dark. I slept fine, tho.

I have to see if I can make the headlights work on the decoder I put in a Proto RDC. Was under the impression that Loksounds were ready to go for LEDs*. Of course all my wiring connections have been shrink tube covered so troubleshooting/changing wires will be a pita. All the wires are trimmed up to fit to eliminate the spaghetti bowl look.

Everyone stay warm and healthy today.

*RE: Loksound, LEDs needed resistors. Lights gleam fore and aft. Instructions, or maybe my interpretation, ambiguous.
