MOADB = mother of all dust bunnies.  4/20/2015 8:57 – 9:05 AM CDT

International Space Station
An occluding dust bunny was found on a screen mesh filter in the air duct of one of the airlocks aboard the ISS.  The attempt to remove it set off numerous fire alarms and drew the attention of ground crews.

Tax day

Posted on Wednesday, April 15th, 2015 at 8:11 pm

Here, at the 3 hour point in Texas for getting tax returns to the post office, I am being lazy.


Got a mini bbq grill yesterday, and it’s ready to fire up.  It’s been ready since this morning, but I just wasn’t up to it.  Long nap, no ambition to cook.  Got brautwurst, pork chops, pork spare ribs, ground chuck, and chicken.  Some will go in the oven, as it’s way too much to grill, even though the rack and the chuck are in the freezer.  But some of the brat, chick, and chops will see some smoke in the next few days.  Got fresh veggies too.


Myka went up on the roof again today, but today she got down on her own.  She got to stay outside until she started napping under the house.


Things are well enough, but I need to get some things in swing before summer.

Laying some pipe

Playing with a C4D pipe generator.  It takes a little effort to get it over to modo, but not terribly so.pipe
