I drove to Ellwood city Pa to support a BBQ restaurant that a friend owns. I picked up a big takeout order from Smokin Daves that we will have a couple different days. Tonight we ate the babyback ribs that almost melt in your mouth. Pure bliss,great guy who owns the place.

Met Kim and Hemi at a local park on the way home from work and we went for a walk. Way more people there than usual but people were passing on far opposite sides of a wide trail. First time Kim has seen people in weeks except Ashley at the post office. I have pics. However the other thing we did was slam face first into our data cap for the month so not much other than text is happening till like Monday. Doh.

FINALLY pulled the skid and decent track from a Phazer I took the engine out of already.  NOW it can be junked.

What are you doing with the motor? Would make a heck of a go cart.

Finally made and installed drawer fronts on the bench i made last year in the mechanical room.

The motor went into another sled- the sled I took apart today had a bad skid.  That's where this thing started.   :thumbsup:

I've been waiting over two years for the PA Master Naturalist program to offer the course in my county and as of about an hour ago, I have applied to be admitted to the program!!! Please keep your fingers crossed for me.

That's awesome! :bigok:

I'm planning to do a similar program here in Illinois, the Master Gardener program, when the kids get a bit older and I have some more me time (laughs). Illinois also has a Master Naturalist program similar to PA's.

I think my elderly doggo had a nightmare.  He woke me at about 3:30 am whining.  He was even shaking a bit.  I dutifully got up, dressed, and took him out for a disappointingly small pee given the amount of fuss he was putting up.  He was still fussy and unsettled when we came in, and I took him in the study rather than returning to bed where he might disturb my wife.  I tried sitting with him while petting and speaking softly but he continued being agitated.  I let him down, and he wandered about the room in a random fashion while occasionally whining. After about 20 minutes, he's settled in his bed. Once he's been asleep for another 20 or 30 minutes, I think I'll be able to carry him into the bedroom and get back to sleep.

He's kinda like a fussy baby who can't explain what's the matter.

Oops I spoke too soon. He's up and wandering again.  He doesn't seem to be hurting.  It's just very much like he is afraid but there's nothing here to be afraid of.

I tried the chair and petting again. This time he seemed to calm a bit and licked my hand.  He's now back in his bed, hopefully for good.

I'm very glad not to have to be at work first thing in the morning.  This would have made for a groggy and unproductive day.

I'll have to see how he is over the course of the day--the vet is semi-closed.  And I've heard how dogs can be sensitive to earthquakes that humans can't feel, but we're not in earthquake country. 

I've been seeing signs of dementia in addition to his physical aging issues.  That's my best guess.

Our extended family kinda owes him in this regard. About 10 or so years ago my fam was at an in-law's every weekend for about 8 months to help restore their home after a flood. A niece who was a toddler at that time would get these crying fits, like a tantrum only full of sadness rather than anger. None of us could do anything for it, and she just had to wear herself out. But the doggo here would cuddle up next to her, give her a few licks, and soon she quit crying and was petting him.

Now it's his turn to be comforted.

dementia could be caused by mini=strokes (TIA). My dog had several of them, over a few months. she would get scared and hallucinate. and probably saw ghosts.

Well, my pre-taxes...
Printed the forms, schedules and worksheets I need.
Did them in pencil.
I'll re-do them on fillable forms online and E-file.

Taught my oldest son how to mow the lawn. He wants to push the mower every time I am out there. Today I asked him if he was up to it. A big smile and head shake signified Yes. I explained the controls, (hold this one down to keep it running, safety items, and so on). He pulled the string and after a few tries the mower came to life. One straight line to show him and he kept on. When it was done the lawn looks good and he seems mighty proud of his work.. 

If this works out, I may never have to mow again and he has a way to extort $$ from me (not a bad exchange)

FINALLY my PC build is done. Took forever to get a hdd mounting bracket. Amazon was a month out for delivery. New Egg took more than a week and a half for expedited shipping. Tried to go to Best Buy (gougers) and they aren't allowing foot traffic in; pre-order and curbside pickup only. Went back to the car and tried to order over the phone through their web site. NOTHING "in stock" and the bracket I found routed me to an outside seller ALSO with a month (or more delivery delay). FTS.

It's a screamer as I suspected. Power-on to log in is about 10 seconds.

Also put down about 20 or 30# of that grass seed I used last season for the shady areas; filling in the places I either didn't get last time or got too thinly.

That's awesome LT,
Today I mowed grass, took apart the last of Sunny's furniture that we were not giving away , but salvaged the wood as it was very good stuff (hardwood) and can be and will be used again. That bird had more furniture than some college students.

Started cleaning the refrigerator. No need to rush. I have no appointments to make.

Made some changes to my back yard pellet trap.

Practiced guitar.

Watched about a billion episodes of Family Guy. I thought I'd caught up so changed the settings to "new only" then saw an old one I'd never seen before. Changed settings to "all" and learned that Seth MacFarlane has taken over TV. There were 35 recordings, I watched (or deleted as being already seen) 10, exited out and there were 37 recordings. ACK!

Looks good!

I had a big train setup in my basement in jr high and high school.  My parents moved while I was in college, and I disassembled the table and gave it and all but one of my trains to an uncle as he had room to set it up for my cousins' kids to play with at his house (none of my cousins had room at their homes, and I was along way from my own home).  But I never got back to it.

I've been tempted to build a small n scale track now that I've retired.

booked  myself in for a corona virus test which the government has (at last!) made available to all front line workers. except I couldn't. the booking line had been closed less than 12 hours after opening.

Not "done", but pending.
I'm on the very edge of my computer seat here, anticipating a TRIP OUT to the coffee store to replenish my caffeine stash!
IF it stops sprinkling, I may dig out the top-box, to take the Duc, and compound the sheer pleasure.
That would make it "moto", so...disregard.

Weather (and my recovery) cooperated so I was able to get out on the bicycle again yesterday for the first time since posting my musings about the different masses of bicycle wheel/tire vs motorcycle wheel/tire and their affect on gyroscopic precession) (maybe 2 weeks or more).

Moves some pantry staples from the garage (to where they usually go) after a 2 week time-out in the garage.

Hey, there's some good news. Glad you're feeling better.

I drove to Ellwood city Pa to support a BBQ restaurant that a friend owns. I picked up a big takeout order from Smokin Daves that we will have a couple different days. Tonight we ate the babyback ribs that almost melt in your mouth. Pure bliss,great guy who owns the place.

I grew up in Mars, PA, just about 30 minutes SE of Ellwood City!

I made pickles today.

It is quite different now than 20 years ago when I left but it was a great place to grow up. I'm sure it still is, just different.

I lifted weights,took a walk with the wife up the hill across from the house. We saw a ton of different birds. I made a rockin good beef vegetable stew and made grilled cheese sandwiches to go with it. I kicked ass playing War Thunder ( group play game) online.  I laughed at a steak snob  who refuses to accept people like things as they like them ,not a cookie cutter, its his way or you are wrong.( Kind of like beer snobs or wine snobs, losers all ) An entertaining day.

putting records in alphabetical order. just having 3 genres: general, jazz, blues and classical. so, just having 4 genres.

now, does Taj mahal go under blues or in the general bit? where do Fats Domino or Bo Diddly go? am I creating a racially segregated classification?

I had no idea that sorting records had so many ethical pitfalls.

Everything has ethical pitfalls.
Deciding between BBQ chips and a chocolate bar is an ethical conundrum.
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

It gets worse.   Several years ago I decided to organize my jazz collection by artist.  1000+ titles. First name or last?  What about solo artists who sometime appear in groups?  How do you file collaborations; by the artist who is listed first or by your favorite?  Do you mix the DVDs in with the CDs.  Do you keep them all together with the tapes and vinyl albums? Arrrgh!

It’s much easier to stream.    My new Marantz has native internet. Personally,I don’t think the fidelity is quite as good, that is when I’m able to find the tiles on the iPad and actually listen to it.
