a new first...

Change of plan - not so inclined to work on the swamp cooler because of the cool breeze this morning. Just bumped the project a day or two...we got some HOT weather coming next week.









Somehow in my past, I never experienced cutting a cinder block with a circular saw. With a nice diamond blade it cuts just like butter - really hard butter, but butter just the same. Had to cut down some block to fill in some of my container foundations. Beautiful/cool morning so I cut the block, bent some rebar and set the form so I can pour the north side of the western front. Contemplated doing the first pour then the clouds and cold wind rolled in. Had drizzle for 2 hours this afternoon.

Around 3PM, the clouds moved east and the sun came out. Made a quick trip down south for some real vegetables and peanut M&M's (I had a craving).....I gotta get that greenhouse going - hopefully I can figure out how to grow peanut M&M's. By the time I got back home, chopping and cutting and mixing and pouring were out of the question. Pulled out the backup timer kit and soldered it up. 64,74,45, .03", W

A new side-line business, growing peanut M&M's. Love it!

Maybe you can hybridize those M&Ms so they have "TFL" imprinted on them, too.

I would have never tried sawing a cinder block...nice to know.
