Foggy this morning in the 60’s and then the sun popped out and the temps rose to the upper 70’s. It maybe springtime soon.

We had the last of the CCloud class, things I wasn’t really interested in. Except for the language barriers I think it went really well. A tad boring at times.

Watched the launch of a SpaceX Falcon with a satellite from Vandenburg AFB this morning.

124-Spider Scorpione


This is a special Fiat 124 Spider, for about #30,020 or 41,800 USD. Lots of racing parts and things.

There is also a Fiat 124 Spider Abarth sold by Fiat that is only about $30,000 USD and a Fiat 124 Spider starting at $24,000 USD.

All are built at the Japanese plant where the Mazda MX5’s are built, the whole interior and chassis are just like the MX5. Just the outside skin and several upgrades.

President Donald Trump signed a bill Monday night ending the government shutdown, capping off a nearly three-day deadlock and reinstating funds until February 8, a senior administration official said.

The Senate passed the measure earlier Monday 81-18.

DACA? Immigration?

Made my first box joint, not a full box though. The joint on the first try was really loose, The pins were too small I think, re-aligned and made the “kiss” on the blade a bit closer and then made the “fit” of the slot a bit tighter. I think I measured the blade without making sure the tooth was at it’s highest point. I kept forgetting to tighten and un-tighten things as I was setting stuff up.

I need to get what I need to do if things are a bit tight, or loose.

Need to get more .5 by 2.5 inch poplar tomorrow and possibly get over to Woodcraft to pick up some clamps.

Overcast and chilly in the a.m. then by noon it was sunny and highs in the 70s.

Spent the morning putting on the roof rack wasn’t so hard just kind of tedious and I start getting really hot ended up changing into shorts and a thinner shirt.

Over to Bass Pro and I picked up another pair of cameo pants and a belt. I wanted to look at Kayaks but they didn’t seem to have any. Looked around a bit and then went over to TMac for some double credit Monday. Went to Suwanee, got to chat with Beverly and a bit later Ellis and the JeffT both arrived about 2pm. They had some samples from Blue PAnts Brewery in AL that were pretty good.

My late lunch turned into an early evening and then I headed home about 4pm. Only had about 7 nooners.

Messed the rest of the evening watching TV and feeling like it was much later than it was since the time change back to regular time. It’s getting dark at about 5:30 now, shit. By six it was totally dark. It’s a great time
