*wanders in*
ah, hi gang!!
wow, that makers fair sure sounds like fun!! dang. I hope to go one day.

Elliot: do I sense you're thinking of attending the "Hofting"? I sure hope so!!
And just so anyone who missed it, it's the last weekend of June, campout, at the Hof (near Nevada City, CA) \
All are welcome!!

Had a great albeit too short visit with Foxfur. What a special, and great guy! We're really lucky to have him here and at the Burn.
I'm hoping he can sneak away for the Hof party too.

I couldn't get that vid to play, Fishy. My machine? dunno.

My attendance at the Hof Ting this year is uncertain, since this is the same weekend as a Kinetic Sculpture Race in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Time will tell.

I've found that being organized makes finding lost things harder. There's only a 5'x20' area the car part I am looking for should be in but its nowhere to be found. The main problem I have with British cars is I usually pay more in shipping than I do for the part. Especially when the part is about the size of a flattened can.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

If I ever win the lottery I'd skip the posh sports and luxury cars, and go for an old school Range Rover.

Up bright and early, and sore after a long day in the shop yesterday. Another ahead of me today, too, and then another one tomorrow. But hooray, making progress. I need caffeine…and advil...

If your machine is too smart to play crap, then you should bottle it and sell it.

Reminds me of something I made a few weeks ago, Jameson, Baileys mint chocolate and something else I cant remember. Tasted like Thinmints.
