    It's Friday - 7/12/2013 Edition

    Man this has been a long week, guess it gets that way when you have to actually work all 5 work days huh.

    Tonight I've got some crown and mag catches to install in the master bath, plan to do the final caulking around the floor, and some touch-ups to paint. Tomorrow will be helping my wife pickup the house a bit, need to power wash the lower deck, then be confined to the shop while she has her success group meeting at our house. I might try to put those larger casters on the dust collector. Have some reloading I'd like to do also. Sunday I may have to go out to the range and hone on my plinking skills, been a while since I've done any.

    What's everyone else got going?

    No woodworking this week, doctor's orders, but I am going to replace the two cabinet hinges in the bathroom, that were broken off accidentally by my big dog. More make-work.

    TGIF. It has been quite a week. Working for the Universities of California means that summer is our busiest time as the student population is lowest. This is when we get to do all that voodoo that keeps all those bits flying through the air and over the wire and fiber up and down the state. I am sooooo going to hide in the shop this weekend. I need the therapy. This is why I use imperial measurements in the shop. Metric looks too much like decimal which is too close to the binary/octal/hexadecimal world I live in at work. No one has ever asked me to do a protocol analysis of their fractional data.

    Fractions . . . ahhhhh

    Well, with all the rain we've had I'm finally able to head outside to mow the lawn. It's tall, lush & beckoning

    Also hope to pick up the electrical supplies to wire in a new 20A circuit for the HFDC. Ran out of open slots for a new 20A circuit breaker. Fortunately, a Tandem 20A CB will allow me to add another 20A circuit for the DC in the same slot as the original 20A CB. Once the wiring is done, the HFDC should be good to go.

    It's my daughter's 8th birthday today so tonight we are taking her and 4 of her friends to an Iowa Cubs baseball game (AAA Cubs Affiliate) As part of a bday package she gets to throw out the first pitch! She is super excited and I'm excited for a beatiful night at the ballpark! I think they're are playing Vaughn's beloved Isotopes...they're going down Vauhgn!!

    Tomorrow we are up and on the road early to my hometown in KS for a 90th birthday for my great aunt, my grandma's sister. She is the last of that generation on either side and has 9 kids of her own...there are gonna be over to 200 relatives, 5 generations, there!

    I just got back in from the shop... yeah! I used minimal electrons... and lots of elbow power this morning. sweeping and cleaning... and glueing up another two blanks for the next wave of cutting boards. i have my triple 'run' today work wise... so I'll be going basically from 1:00-2am tonight by the time I stop. Guess I'd better grab a quick shower, then get ready for work. ciao all~

    Today has been a little honey-do stuff inside, then to the shop to finish assembly of my new G0690 (pics to come). I'll be modifying the benches surrounding my table saw position to accommodate the Incra TS when it arrives.

    Saturday will be more of the same in the shop and helping LOML with a couple of house items.

    Sunday will be a chill-out day (hopefully). NASCAR at noon, of course! Will toss a couple of steaks and lobster tails on the grill for dinner.

    Working on the Putter Palace today. Only have one day off and then not every week. Friday is my designated day off. Have an old bench that I am clearing and will offer for sale at the local woodworking club meeting next Tuesday. Brent gets my scissor table and I will use that top to make a bench/router table/table saw extension table. Once things get cleared out, I can take the necessary measurements and get with the program. Also working on the electrical, slow but sure. It is over the head work and my neck doesn't like that stuff, so taking it a little bit at a time so as not to take myself out of the loop altogether.
