Had a Zoom happy hour with a friend of mine...we originally had plans to go to the student-run restaurant on campus, but that got scrapped.

You've been keeping up with the Zoom security issues right? It's so bad that Zoom just announced a freeze on all enhancements so they can fix all the security flaws.

It's always been a train wreck, it's just that it's become such a target of opportunity now with so many more people using it.

They kept a wide-open web server running on the mac version even after you shut down so if your router wasn't secure and you happened to have blind port forwarding on, whammo....

Digging holes ... In shale.  Ooof. Tunneling bar and lots of patience. Trees and bushes to plant.

Digging by hand sucks.  It always makes me laugh watching shows where they plant a tree or shrub and the soil is nice and loamy.

There's a widow a few houses up from me that needed some repairs done around the house, fixed a couple shingles that came off, repaired a French door that wouldn't lock, dug up some meadow tea to make room for some raised beds I'll be building for her when she gets the materials.

Then got started on a wine fridge cabinet for Andreas cousin.

I am very nearly at the end of cleaning 2000+ records. So many discoveries of albums I'd forgotten I had. I was extremely surprised to find I didn't have a single Elton John record. But then I remembered I can't stand his stuff.

That is actually what lots of our soils are like.  I go down through about 2-3 feet of topsoil, then get into some sandier mix.  By my folks it's 2-3 feet of topsoil, then clay.

I'll be digging in mine tomorrow to plant a few Chestnut trees.

Oh no doubt about that.  It's just that they never show folks planting things when you need to use a digging bar to get past the grass layer.

I'd like to see them show someone using a tunneling bar and having their teeth rattled when they hit rock on the first strike. And then a fast motion of the next 45 minutes it takes to dig a hole 8"x8"x8".  Of all the things I love about WV, the composition of the land is NOT one of them. Be grateful if you have to dig in something where you can ever get more than a 1/4 of a shovel full.

Took a long walk with the wife in a semi deserted area ,we needed to get out in the sun just to help some of the hurt to stay away for a while. It helped. We also picked out a headstone, I need to talk to those folks when they open.

Yesterday was another chainsaw day.  Couple weeks ago, we went onto the bank beside the top portion of the driveway and cut down everything that was less than about 6" round.  We probably took down a dozen or so trees.  Yesterday was spent cutting them up, loading up the trailer and hauling everything up to be staged for a future burn day.  We didn't even get them all done.  Steep, leaf covered property means some pretty slow and deliberate movements while holding a running chainsaw.  I have some pretty good boo boos on my arms from the brush and sticks fighting back.  Beautiful day tho. 

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy.

I cut down one tree 15 -20 inch diameter and hauled the wood up to the lot and was beat.   

You sure are hardy folk.  If I was smart, I wood have cut this thing down when it was small.

The wife and I blew off most of what we actually had planned (OK, I got to blow off tire changes and trailer wiring, we still made time for her gardening and yardwork).

Instead, we spent a harrowing couple of days making masks for ourselves and my people at work. Deemed 'essential' by the guy that owns the place, we are all obliged to go out in public coming to work, and my delivery and receiving personnel in particular still have contact with multiple people outside and from outside of the plant. Colorado Governor has 'requested' that all inhabitants wear masks in public to further slow the spread of the virus, and there's virtually no possibility for purchased disposables at this time.

That said, my wife and I needed them, and I took the balance to work and shoved them into my peoples hands. I can't FORCE them to wear them, but I can make sure they have them if they choose to (although I have vehemently encouraged my delivery personnel to take multiples and use them *please*)...  There has been some resistance, but it is futile. The longer there are people around with them, the more likely that the nay-sayers are being socially encouraged to conform to the new norm.

OK, I have an ulterior motive to spreading these things around the plant... My daughter is still out of work, and she's done sewing and seamstress work on the side before. Tried to talk the boss into contracting for a shit-ton of these because his order of disposables are still 6 weeks out minimum. We'll see how that works now that I've spread 30 or so of them around work. Laid out the bait, hope he bites...

And just saying, only *I* am cool enough for a cheezburger mask, no extras of those...

Meh, not really.  Just don't make enough money to pay someone to do it.  :)  Plus, then they'd know where I live.   :tinfoil:

Went to work, consulted with Plant Engineering, bought a new boiler feedwater pump came home.

My wife is engaged in her favorite pass time of pressure washing, she absolutely loves it so we all put up with the racket and let her have at it. She's having a ball out there  :inlove:

Today I gave up on my HP computer and HP printer wireless setup and connected the two with an old-fashioned wire.  Randomly and without any apparent reasoning, the wireless connection will spontaneously fail and I get a "printer is off line" error message.  My IT skills being what they are, it would often take an hour or more to fix the problem, often needing to redownload the software for the printer.  I finally was fed up enough today to dig through my box of mysterious wires to find one that could connect the two devices, and now I can print again.

I really don't understand why these products aren't working together since they are from the same company and were built about the same time.  It's supposed to be plug-n-play according to the instructions. 

If the wired connection screws up, I guess that I'm gonna have to try Crapple.

Oh, we also voted today.  We wore scarfs over our faces like The Shadow!  We weren't the only ones doing so.

Spent the day teaching mechanics how to make bubble and double flare fittings, how to bleed hydraulic brakes as well as the operation and testing of a Mico Lock system. Yep day 4 of a 5 day hydraulic brake class. Tomorrow they get a 4 wheel reline (Ford E450).
 While the guys were diagnosing the fault I put in the vehicle, I helped another mechanic fix the video surveillance system (setting the IP addresses of the cameras) on his bus.

Fun day  :D

Walked all the way to the corner (about 1000') and bought some honey from the veggie stand on the corner. Watched my wife work on a 1000 piece puzzle. Started a fire in the wood stove. Went online and found this rarely used website. Wasted a bit of my life typing nonsense.
That's pretty much it.

Retired my inner asshole side and working on the frustration of isolation. 

Not a whole doggone lot the past week.  Ran the tractor around the yard to cut and clean up leaves again.  Dug my last bag of fertilizer out and hit the weak spots in the lawn/seeded areas.  In two weeks, I'll do the whole yard.  Got a large delivery coming from Lowes to do a bunch of stuff in the yard like finishing off the second deck started last year.  Railings, spindles and such. 

Helping the neighbor out with various projects and tools.  Gonna get her lawn tractor fired up tomorrow.  It spins but doesn't fire.  Handy dandy can of aerosol instant start will fix that.

In other news, we have a new puppy in the family.  The youngest adopted a female German Shepherd pup two days ago.  She's a cutie.  Meet Juno.

Over the weekend we took the mutts down to beach for a some social distancing vitamin D.  There's a beach replenishment job in progress that my company is doing third-party survey work for.  We don't down to "inspect" the work.   Also tore down the grill for a deep cleaning in prep for the season.

Over the weekend we took the mutts down to beach for a some social distancing vitamin D.  There's a beach replenishment job in progress that my company is doing third-party survey work for.  We don't down to "inspect" the work.   Also tore down the grill for a deep cleaning in prep for the season.

Learned technical innernets stuff to spend an afternoon playing darts in the man-cave with our friends in California on Sunday afternoon... Drinks, snacks, Easter candy and sharp flingy stuff. What could go wrong? Pics suck, lighting was atrocious for photos, but it was a good time using the bigger tv for visable screenage.

That is a great idea! I like your back stop and shelf for the darts. Is the board recessed into the backstop or is that a very thin board?

Pretty thin board. The backstop is 1x6, framed by 2x4 w/2x6 shelf. It's pretty heavy screwed to the wall, but solid. Probably going to have to replace the board. That was a gift from my daughter, but it will definitely age like milk. Every dart in pulls out a chunk of paint. Looked like a hamster had been gnawwing on it by the 2nd game.

tried some of the chicken noodle soup I put in the freeze in February. Back then I put at least half down because it was "meh". It was great. I must not have been in the mood then.

I made beef stew and it turned out great. It was 80º yesterday. Today it's 35º. Timing was perfect on the beef stew.

We roasted another pork loin yesterday.  The elderly doggo was so happy and animated because of the cooking smells.  He likes beef, chicken and fish as well, but there's something about pork (or perhaps its just the long roasting process) that gets him going.

LOLOL.    It's a Coastal Research Amphibious Buggy, CRAB.  It rides down the beach and thru the surf zone with a survey grade GPS to record a continuous elevation profile.
