Sold my previous car, changed a couple a weeks ago.

Got a phone call from the new owner - I'm getting fuel, help, where's the filler release?

Well so far today or this morning depending where your at. I finally got the electric box with the Break out Boad all set up finally, even made sure I have a on/off switch. Now I even put a computer fan ontop with the cut out so that the fan blows cool air in. I made sure I put holes all a round the box so the the hot air can escape out, now I an extending the fan wires so that I can run it from the computer motherboard since the power supply for the BOB (Break Out Board) iwould burn it out. Should be done sometime today, the wife will be coming on line soon. 51 more days and I will be makeing Love with the Wife in China again, dam can't wait till she gets her.

I woke at 0530, attended a departmental meeting at 0630-0730, patient blood management meeting 0730-0830, theatre at 0830 to prepare for a segmental mandibulectomy, radical neck dissection, scapula rotational flap, fibular free flap mandible reconstruction and tracheostomy in a 79yo with base of tongue SCC, which just finished at 2130. I've now got home, about to eat my first meal of the day, and shower before going to bed and get some sleep before the midwives call me for a labour epidural overnight, before starting tomorrow as the duty anaesthetist and 24hr Oncall.

No time for ship building today

Read the news,  reading MSW, listened to and sang along to Arlo's "Alice's Resturant" in honor of the day here in the states.   Intend to keep working on the model, eat a "Thanksgiving dinner that can't be beat" and maybe just wander around the backyard and think about finishing the winter cleanup.

Sherry,

 

I loved driving in that kind of scenery.  I used to travel 75 miles one way to work across a pass here in Oregon and every day in the winter, it was Christmas Card experience.

 

Sjors,

 

I'm with you on it's a wonderful world. 

 

You finished Le Mirage?  Great news... I'm headed to your build log.

Well Joe,

I totally don't know anything about CAD drawings.
But if you want to know what the guys (or gals) are thinking, you should post these pictures in the 'CAD and 3D Modelling/Drafting Plans with Software' http://modelshipworl...-with-software/

This is because members are usually quite quick at responding, but are more likely to notice them if they are in the relevant forum.

Waited for inter web to get restored, drove the 130 miles to bring grandson home, now sitting in a hotel restaurant having dinner. Snow and ice forecast so stayed in town for the next day before I fly to Orlando Monday morning. At least I won't be the one who has to shovel!

It's been legal for medical use in RI since 2006, I have the license since 2009 because I have problems with takeing the pills, they don't like me and I don't like them. Just had the license renew 2 months ago. I don't drink booze, don't like the taste and since I am already an A__HOLE I don't need to drink LOL.

I finally got the courage and turn on the CNC computer. Well at first I had no video so I check the HDMI cable going into the computer and still nothing, so then I check the cable going into the monitor and low and behold I got video, Load off my mind. So now I turn on the driver box and the BOB and then open up March 3 and started pressing the keys and the motors all work. So I got lucky that everything is still working and I didn't screw anything up when I made the box with the fan for the BOB (dam thing cost to much and takes about 2 weeks to get it mail to me). So now I seem to only have a couple of things left to install in the shop and I will be done. Taken my time seem to be paying off so far. Now to wake the MAGGOT (my Son) up for school and then take him to scholl and get another coffee. Then I get to take a nap. been up since 1:45am. LOL only in America.
