What I’m reading: How to Rebuild and Restore Classic Japanese Motorcycles (I have a thing for 1976 Honda 400/4 Supersports, long story) Pretty good hike this morning with Molly, we did about 5 miles total, it was 30 degrees or so, but once the sun was out and hitting us, I was sweating.   Still can not get …

I watched an oldie but a goody this afternoon, “Panic in the Year Zero” if you have never seen it, give it a watch.  Trigger warning:  It was another time. Made …

What I’m reading: Cnut the Great Day 2 of Molly refusing to get into the car.  She is now bouncing off the walls, and I figure it is going to be a long night. Spent an hour or so putting together (Partially) the quadcopter.   Got it mostly together and realized I had it all backwards.  LOL.  …

What I’m reading: Man’s Search for Meaning Well, on our Red Rock Loop hike, Molly refused to get back in the truck.   Which means, she will have to settle for long walks around the house on a leash.  That makes me sad. I got 2,700 words done today, pretty close to a chapter, in fact I …

What I’m reading: Train To Pakistan Did the Skywalker trail again with Molly, pushed it a little further than we have been doing, got within a stones throw of the airport mesa.  I liked it, Molly came home and slept.  I have been thinking on why Molly appears to be more frightened, with just about everything …

What I’m reading: Practical Electronics for Inventors Today was a lost day.  Molly skipped out on the early morning walk, so we decided to operate on that new piece of furniture to hide the wires.  Well, after 15 minutes with a sawz-all, I was lucky the thing still stood upright.  Two of the legs I put …

What I’m reading: Popol Vuh: A Sacred Book of the Maya Busy day, I made a pot roast and did my laundry.  I feel very domestic. I spent a good part of the day thinking about how I could bring Agile Programming practices to my writing.  I like the idea of rapid iterations, I can apply …

What I’m reading: Al-Sabah: History and Genealogy of Kuwait’s Ruling Family, 1752-1986 Taught myself anodizing titanium this morning.   Easier than I thought, but picayune little details that were time consuming.  It was fun.  Tinkery. Had a nice hike with Sandra and Molly today, it went by much faster than usual. Sandra found a chest of drawers …
