He’d been eating at a local McDonalds and wanted some real meat.  Actually there IS a reason to not feed wild life…

Programmable Soda Bottle: Have It Your Way – Gizmodo

And how are they gonna keep some asshat from punching all the flavor buttons while they are still on the grocery store shelf?  Packaging for the bottle maybe.  Or maybe they need to think this through a bit more…

Boing Boing: Steam-powered Gameboy video

Better than Steam Punk – A steam powered gameboy.  Short video showing a DARK area with what seems like an old steam engine (small) hooked to a generator, meter and then gameboy.  Would love to see more of the setup with decent still pix and maybe a post describing it.

Dr. Seuss Art

Never knew he was a sculpter too. Seeing his drawings, paintings, and sculpture makes me realize just how different his world view really was. He seems to have lived (in his head at least) totally within the different universe that he shared in the books… 😉

Wonderful stuff! Well worth the visit. He even did a nude!  Below the fold…

Talk Like A Pirate Day


Down for the day

By , September 19, 2006 12:16 pm

Over did it the last few days and am paying today.  May post a bit but for the most part am going to try to recoop(?).

Guess it was all the drill use.  Don’t have quite this much problem with hands and arms when I use the modified remote battery drill vs the heavy as hell 18 volt sucker.

Downtime is partually due to the last two days spent with the heavy as hell unit in hand putting gutters on one side of the 12×60 and getting metal canopys put up over the doors on the other side before the rain hit.

Trying to cut down on the amount of water that runs down the walls, behind the scrap I have against the sides at the bottom to keep the cats out, under the length of the trailer and then under the end wall of the unfinished rear addition to the q-hut and into the floor.

The flood inside wasn’t quite as bad this time.  Of course I ended up putting the last piece of metal up in pouring rain.  Put the drill in a large baggie with the bit sticking out one corner and finished up or we would have had a lot more inside.  I think this one was a 12 towel leak.

Got a new one at the other end in the bedroom floor.  Or that’s where it ends up.  Ceiling center 3 feed from the end.  Course that is the first seam in the ceilotex so could be from the end to 6 feed or so from it.  We were up there a couple of months ago with roof coating so may have caused one then.  Tis always something new.

I hope to get metal cut to underpen the trailer and stop the water from getting under in the first place.  But I also need to finish with gutters or extended metal water sheads/eaves or something to keep it from getting on what walls are left.   Plan to redo the walls with some cans/bottles/rocks/concrete combo and be done with it fer-ever.  One of these days…

Hands are giving out so will close till later…
