    Good morning crew, readers, lurkers, and security team. The coffee urn is READY with Yardmaster blend. The special is Luftwaffles and fried chicken. No pork products on the menu until the unrest caused by an outgoing prezdent has fired up the crew. Hog's rights groups are forming up at the ***Sty demanding their worth is valued. OK, enough of that all-beef baloney!

    I played with making cardboard templates and the module foam top last nite. I think I've got a final pattern laid out, and will work on that later. The 'Mission Impossible' crew of one yesterday, came out. But, he didn't bring the replacement radio, or the description of what he was suppose to replace. He asked a million questions about the 3D printer and left. Another 'MI' team is due here within the next 8 hours. :erm: Which of course ties up my day.

    Looks like the Peaceful Pork Protest is subsiding, as the Sun has come up.

    Have a Super day!

    Take the red pill

    Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is partly sunny and 50 degrees right now in S.E. Michigan. We are supposed to go into the mid-70's later today.

    After a few days of yard work, I'm taking a day break to let what little muscles I have left a bit of a break.

    Time will tell what I end up doing today.

      Good morning folks

      It is a bright yet chilly 52 heading up to 73. Is Spring finally here or will be move directly into summer? Tomorrow is supposed to be 82.

      Took a long nap after I got home from dropping the wife off at work. She made it through the day with little problems with her foot. Picked her up and stopped for lunch. She continued resting the foot. Then the email came. For the second time this month her school is closed for a week due to a spike in Covid cases. They had five reported late yesterday and have had 18 in 12 days which more than the high school and three elementary schools combined. The County Health Department shut them down. Now she can work from home while resting her ankle.

      I worked on the Cinder Conveyor. I assembled the support structure. It was a pita. One of the worst things to assemble that I have come across in many years. I broke off several pieces just trying to position the sections. At one point I seriously considered giving up. After close to two hours I finally got it together. I hope to work on it some time today.

      I have to run to the pharmacy and grab an OTC allergy med. Love this time of year. Then I need to go to Grainger to pick up the parts I need for the pond filter.

      I hope everybody has a good day.

        Good morning, Jim and crew. The day is starting out a little chilly, but we're going to be in the 70's this afternoon.

        We've been gone for a week and a half, so I gave errands to run, grass to cut and other chores to do. No MRRing today.

        Have a good day.

        With sufficient thrust pigs fly just fine.

          Good morning, crew. Its a sunny 66F with high of 81F(!) expected.

          The plans for today are uncertain. My wife has an appointment at mid-day. Not sure when we'll get out together; morning looks to be the best time.

          I did my mowing yesterday. The grass looks good, but it looks good every year at this time. Iris are healthy and throwing up buds. I started tying the stalks to bamboo stakes; iris are the only flowers I coddle.

          I sprayed primer on the the latest component of the stairway and read the instructions for the next step. Outdoors is too nice to ignore so not much modeling got done. Maybe today will be different.

          Have a great day everyone!

            Hazy sun in Midwest central lower Michigan with warmer temp today and guessers say we may touch the magic 80 degrees barrier. It was in 60s yesterday and felt [:-cold] with a 15gust20 wind from the West. Was almost like a dust storm with heavy activity in the area farm fields kicking up quite the cloud. Add in the seasonal pollen and such it’s quite a foggy day behind the eyes.

            Reading the the protests Jim mentioned I now understand the sign “Pork bellies Matter” I saw driving by a real stanky set of barns yesterday.

            I got is the mood of glazing yesterday on the off and on again project on the bench.

            Gallery Glass does a decent job for me. I also use it for canopy glue type sticky situations as well.

            Warm weather will most likely drive me outside today.

            Everyone have a fine day, safe and well.
