I don't like change much. As such, I've never - not once - changed my avatar until the other day when a few of use poked JimVH by using his pin-up calendar photo as our avatar background. It was a fun tease but I've been discombobulated since then so I'm going back to my pipe smoking Jayhawk.

It's a seven year stint that leads to 8 weeks off (I added a little vacation time to extend it!!).

I have time off.

I've got a small fire going on in our new charcoal grill to season the cast iron grates and burn off any residue from the manufacturing.

I got the brakes fixed on my truck. The first time I stepped on the parking brake pedal after having the work done, I just about hurt myself. Instead of going down about 8 inches, it only went down about 3/4 of an inch.

OK. At the risk of sounding as if I care; I am an internet dependent human for employment. Recent situations have caused me to have to work around internet outages to remain employed. It was a tookus pain. Having an Alt-office is simply smart.

It's not doing it wrong. It's

I'm covered in cultured skin made from T-cells from mice, at least 63% of me.

I replaced the handles on my post hole digger. One of the original handles broke and the other was about to break, so I replaced both, saving about $11 off the price of a new post hole digger. It's a Seymour and the bolts take a 9/16 ths wrench to install the handles. The handles have round ends, not square like some other PHDs.
Tomorrow I'll resharpen the edges with a file.
Not that anyone would care.

Experimental treatment? Because current cultured graft technology I'm aware of uses human cells grown on mouse fibroblasts. In any case hope you are doing better.
