Sorry Kobuk, I could totally use you here.  Next time I will live feed my life from here (maybe if I can figure it out) so people can see how stupid hard it is for me to put this suit on.  I am glad I did that in a cold garage at like 0F .  I was still sweating.

I am working from home and typing here in Furtopia. 
Later I hope to eat and be happy



You can see the focal plane was the snow in front of me.  Lame. Oh well I got a focal blur.

Another reason to have a helper is to avoid this...

Haha! 
WOOF! (eats ball instead of chews it)
I guess I got carried away!

I am up to relaxing a little, while working from home.  Work place had pipe burst, no water, no toilet, no people allowed in building.  OSHA rules I suppose.

But here at home, life carries on.

WOOF!

I need to drive into the next county on Saturday to join in my CAP squadron preparations for an upcoming inspection. Gotta bring in a base station transceiver and power source so it can be tallied when the actual inspection occurs.

Windshield wipers stuck in the upright position again. Actually happened last Friday. When all the cold weather hit. Had to wait till it warmed up to fix it. Plastic, rubber and vinyl parts tend to crack when ti's that cold outside. Easy fix.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Turns out this isn't going to be an easy fix. Got the tab bent back up into place. However the wiper transmission didn't catch on it. Seems the substrate the tab is connected to got twisted.  Going in the shop next Tues.

Does that include an  antenna!?

Awesome fursuit Jade!

Took the week off. Sitting at home. Turns out my 'easy fix' wasn't the problem this time. Car is sitting at the shop now. It'll take about $400 of windshield wiper goodness to get it all back to working again. Three parts went bad. The arm that connects both wipers, the wiper transmission itself and the plate that goes under it. Wont have the car back until after 2:00 tomorrow.

Spent some time watching cheese making videos. I'm a big fan of Italian and other white cheeses. So I watched one maker make different white cheeses. I did not know this. But cheese is a lot like bread. With bread you can use water, salt, flour and yeast and get totally different flavors and styles of bread. Buy using the same ingredients. With slightly different measurements, temperatures and times you get different cheese. If I were to make any of them it would have to be the Mozzarella and his Grana Padano. or as he had to call it, his 'cease and desist' cheese. If you follow the link below you can find both the video of him getting the cease and desist email and then getting an apology email. Plus a lot of well done cheese making videos.

When it rains in pores. Well, not all the time. But this time it's a bit stormy. Last Monday my break fluid light comes on as soon as I pull into works parking lot. So I got some fluid and filled it back up. Today, wile pulling into my driveway, the light comes back on. Checked it and it's at the same low level it was last Monday. So I just got my windshield wipers fixed. Drove the car home to find now my breaks are leaking fluid. Car goes back into the shop tomorrow. Good thing i took the week off.  But not the vacation I was hoping fore.

Hi Cause, do you know what wheel is leaking fluid?  Auto parts stores may have the whole caliper for an ok price, and replacing it is easy-ish.  Purging air out of line is harder than the replacement work.  Well at least for me it was this way.

I am working from home last half of today, and hope to take dog on walk.

Thanks for the heads up and confidence in my mechanic abilities Jade. But I'm far from any kind of mechanic. I'm the reason why there are auto shops. And I'm more than happy there's people I can go to. From past experience it's cheaper for me to drop a car off than it is for me to do any real kind of work on it. I've stripped, bent and cracked things in the past. The reason I was able to fix the wipers before is because it's an easy fix. With not much more skill than changing the wiper blades. I know the breaks could just be a loos fitting. All the way up to a line that needs to be replaced. Rather have someone who knows what they're doing than make it worst myself. Years ago a friend came out and change all my break shoes. The only thing I was able to help with was breaking the bolts and nuts loose. Muscles I have in abundance. My mechanical abilities are just above bending a screw driver. I have tools. Because other people bought them for me.  :D

 Hi cause! I wasn't sure of your mechanic skills or inclination to do the work.  I just default to doing  my own work when I think I can.  I totally get having the pros do it!  :)

I'm listening to it rain here.  And lots of wind.  So I'm relaxing after work.

I know I should be painting. But something else has caught my eye. Italian cartapesta. It's the art of bending home made paper to look like fabric. They simply call it paper mache. But it's different in it's application.  To get really good results you have to make your own paper. The paper has to be thick. Without a grain. All modern paper can be torn straight in one direction. News paper and junk mail are way to thin. And even if you pasted sheets together in different directions you sill have to deal with the grain.

Right now I'm experimenting. Trying to find a good ratio of pulp per square inch. Plus I'm adding old blue jean material cut into 1/4 by 1/4 squares. These are blended to a pulp along with the paper. This will help add strength and bulk to the finished product.

Right now I have two experiments being pressed under a full five gallon bucked of water. Each with the same amount of pulp per square inch. With different amounts of blue jean material.

If you do a search make sure you type in Italian cartapesta. If you don't Google will translate cartapesta into paper mache.

Draining my hot water heater. Got to drive a bit to get new rods. Think I'll buy a second pair to have on hand. When you have hard water changing out the heating rods is a fact of life.

I'm "digging out" from the highly over exaggerated winter storm here.  Well at least here where I am at, it is only 4" of snow.
Who cares?!

Finally setting up my new PC after having procrastinated for almost a month because I got highly annoyed at the state in which it arrived and temporarily lost the will to deal with it any more. (It turns out they do secretly judge absurd hardware choices, and express their judgement by only properly installing half of it. >:()

(Also, having very reluctantly upgraded to Windows 10 straight from 7 (the last half-decent version of Windows), I am almost entirely unprepared for its level of dark UI patterns. "You must create a Microsoft account or play Where's Wally to find the button to opt out." "No thanks." "Okay, I'll remind you 3 seconds later." Seriously, I already gave it an allegedly valid activation key and the customary sacrifice to Azazel; what more does it want? :o Good thing I only need Windows for gaming and use Linux for all serious work.)
