o1.01.10 started off as the coldest morning since I arrived on the scene... 17.6 degrees. Due to my utter disdain for parties and artificial holiday gatherings, I hit the sack last night at 9:30PM. Got 10 hours of sleep to start off the new year. Had to wait for the sun to come up and defrost my windshield (I left my ice scraper back in NY) before heading to the GrubShack for my first breakfast of 2010.
Next on the list for the greenhouse roof are some additional welded brackets for the trusses. Was able to install the sets for container 1 then took a break for 2 brief Field Lab tours. Back to the GrubShack for their new years day special...pork chops, black eyed peas (with Eva's special home made salsa) and cornbread.
Reluctantly looked back at my to do list from the day 1 post of 2009. It appears that I am way behind schedule - due to a shift in priorities over the course of the year and the monster that the greenhouse project has become. Good news is that the desert rover robot project is off the back burner and on the drawing board. (photo above is one of the NASA Mars rovers) Another fun project to distract me is a simple design for entrance tower flame throwers. http://www.ballisticom.com/ Why?.....because I can.
Got a full plate for 2010 and I wouldn't have it any other way. 42,66,17.6,0
