now we resume our regular programming
Had the benefit of my 3 favorite longhorns here all day today....Guillermo, Benita, and Beatrice. These three seem to play well together so there were no confrontations - just relaxed snacking. I'm thinking they might all be related.
The good ol' TV test pattern from yesterday was part of my logo back in my NYC days as a prop builder when I was the artist formerly known as John Wells Televisions. That image and the loud tone that accompanied it is my earliest remembrance of TV back in the 60's. The only reason we have 24 hour programming now is so advertisers can sell more crap that we just don't need. I long for the day that I only consume what I produce myself...I cannot justify putting Google ads on this blog because the click through scam is just a big ponzie scheme that has absolutely no value. Down the road, I will have my own products to sell that will earn me an honest dollar.
Been rethinking my truss system due to a dream I had the other night. Set up the new layout and began cutting rebar (by hand)...the chop saw Ryan loaned me needs a smaller cutoff wheel than the one provided. Since I need to cut 70 13" pieces for each truss half....will run down to Bee Mountain Hardware in the morning to get the correct cutter. My hacksaw arm is plumb wore out.
A couple of big storms dumped on Marathon the last two nights but never quite made it down here. The Field Lab got .01" and 3 bees in the rain gauge last night.
