Coffee is hot.

'Tis 46 and sunny. "Partly cloudy in the morning  then mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 70s. South wind 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent."

Morning all.

Supposed to be a clearer day today, but we'll see.  I have to go to the city today for some shopping, and my sister has a dentist appointment down there.  I should survive...

Coffee and other beverages are ready!

Getting ready for tomorrow’s getaway to Atlanta for the NRA Annual Meetings.  Been working on some health issues so I’d be okay to make the trip.  Looks like everything is under control.

Put down another coat of Milorganite fertilizer on the lawn yesterday and tested the sprinkler system.  Got a couple sprinkler heads to replace when I get back. 

Looks like a good trip in the offing.

Only 2 hours away. However my health wouldn't allow for such all day affair.
I see Donald will speak Friday there.

Evening all.

Nothing much on this side of the Sierras.  Alternating rain and sun, high around 60 and winds of 15mph +. 

I made a stew for dinner.  Simple, but it's better than being hungry.  Just some beef and potatoes tossed in the wannabe dutch oven, aka the crock pot, for about 7 hours.  Came out okay, though a little bland.  Next time I'll add some more potatoes and maybe some carrots and celery if I have some. Roll Eyes  Maybe even some biscuits.

Morning all.

Weather is forecast for sunny with a high near 70, winds of 15mph.   Undecided

I have a city trip today. My sister's high school is getting a tour of Shasta Dam and the associated power plant, as well as the Shasta Caverns.  I'm going for some reason, apparently.  I haven't been told the reason, only that there is one.

Coffee fail !  

sitting here with weak mug of ....brown warm water, not sure what happened, to the Keurig,
I made it in the dark, so I may have done something  Huh different....

should be dark Dunkin Donut roast....  it's now 5 minutes later, and I dumped the first mug out, turned on the light
reloaded the Keurig and this time my coffee is fine...I know I put a new cartridge in and check to see if a decaf was slipped in on me  Roll Eyes
Oh well, another, earthly mystery for me to ponded.

Glass Skulls, Stonehenge and my cup of weak JO  April 30, 2017 ....

In other news, on the way to work yesterday, I'm tooling along , slowed and entered a left turn lane to the on ramp  of Florida's
Turnpike..... Engine shut off, just like that    ....Check Engine light  and Digital screen say's consult Owner's manual...

Yeah , right there with other's trying to turn, stacking up behind me ...read the owners manual  Roll Eyes  rrrightttt !
Try to restart, NADA Oh ! wait needs to be in PARK and the brake fully depressed ... OK
Yea ! it starts..... but have no go.....it will do maybe 15-20 MPH that's it....
So I have enough zip to get out of traffic and on a safe shoulder on the side of the street....

Understand , this is 2017 Edge , Call the Dealer ( before open hours Drat ) call back ....they say call Ford Roadside Assistance
They were great, pin point my location with GPS ...and I left it there, (Wife picked me up and ran me up to the Job 20 )
Ford Roadside Assistance, texts and then calls 4 times ...1. confirms I'm OK  and Helps is dispatched
then 2. Help will be there within 25 mins..... 3. Help is there, confirms Tag #  and finally 4. my car is at the dealer...

Dealer calls, they have it, and are looking into it....  Turns out to be the Throttle Body, seems my Edge is "drive by wire" ...
no mechanical linkage or cable .... electric sensor > foot pressure transmits to the loud peddle and then to the TB how much go I want ...via a Computer CPU. *

They replace the TB under warranty ( of course ) and it's ready by 1PM ....

Annoying as HELL, but can fault the service....

There is a built in program called "limp home mode " that will over ride automatically if the link fails,   and allow the car to drive ( slowly)
for safety sake ( kinda like a governor )


There is even a Code, that tells " that what it is.... so the Mechanic knows what to repair right away...  

still annoying as HELL .... I quit working on them when Carburetor's when the way of the Dodo bird.

Morning y'all.
Coffee is hot.

Working on the shed floor today.
Brought the trailer back from my father's. New oak bed. Found springs at the local salvage yard. They were from a '97 F150. Not exact what was on it, but it worked. It moved the axle an inch or 2 backwards. I'll post pictures later,

'Tis 43 and partly sunny. "Mostly sunny in the morning then becoming mostly cloudy. A slight chance of light rain in the afternoon. Highs around 50. Northeast wind 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent."

Morning all.

The joys of modern engineering, right Major? Roll Eyes  My brother and I are starting to work on our dad's old '77 Chevy.  Carbed 400ci  with forged internals and a racing cam.  It used to be in a Camaro, but now it's in a 1/2 ton.  Tongue  Kind of funny, though.  My brother went from a Minecraft nerd on Monday to a gear head on Wednesday.  I don't know what happened, but I'm not complaining.

I ended up not making a city trip yesterday.  Someone had to stay home to watch the escape artist labrador, and my dad couldn't because he had to travel for work.  So we stayed home and played fetch. Roll Eyes

Rain all day, varied from moderate showers to genuine toad strangler. No fun for delivering mail. Mail Blazer heater messed up, seems the "blend door actuator motor" has failed, so the only temp setting is-REAL COLD. So it's either drive with totally fogged over windows, or, use the defroster-which puts out only REAL COLD air.

Here it tiz.... dawn on the last day in April 2017 .....it's been an interesting Month ,  

Drought (in Florida ? ) less than .25 inch all month...  front yard is dead  Roll Eyes
I turned a year older (+11 days towards counting down to new Decade next year )
I'm now loading a brandy new Powder ( at least to me ) APP , after testing it out , I'm all  Smiley  ( WAS only )
Broke down in my brand new Car  Huh
Won a Glock in a drawing ( han't seen it yet though )  Undecided
.....

Coffee's on,  best double check it though !
figured out what I did to yesterday's ...It took out the old cartridge from the Keurig , and  a new one out  of the storage bin
turned around to toss the old one.... but instead tossed the new unused and reinstalled the used one from the morning before.
Outcome ... Crap ....I blame the dark and early hour  Embarrassed 1/2 asleep stupor....

Results of morning reconnaissance: To the west, crossing the Wet Auglaize creek at Bobby Jones Slab, still impassable, although water appears to have gone down at least 4' from it's peak. To the north, Happy Holler slab, traffic passing through. To the east, Seven Springs slab passable, 4-6" water over slab. Church looks like a "go".
