    Those are devices used by people desperate to convince themselves that there is value to freezing weather and so much snow that you can't (shouldn't) go outside. Or so I've heard.
    At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.

    Trying to get time in the shop today, but it has not worked uo to now.....

    Spent way too much time working on analysis of a City project requiring "Tax Increment Financing". The Council wants it, and it can't possibly pay for itself, I find. They are in trouble, having loudly promised this for many months.

    I am now feeling like kissing the 12 extra people out of 1100 who did not vote for me, so my opponent was elected to take this heat.... I am happy to be out of the line of fire..... But next election there will be serious ammunition against them.

    Snow.... It's white and falls from the sky. Kids love to play in it.

    Our dog of 16 years died this morning so I had to bury it. It was a tough job in more ways than one. It is 4 F here and dropping. -18 wind chill with 33mph gusts. The ground is frozen and my wife chose a spot at the base of a 2' tree with lots of roots. But, I made a promise to the dog so I was keeping it. I did have to take a couple of breaks to thaw hands and feet out. The pain is really something when the hands start to thaw out. RIP Strawberry.

    Sorry about your loss.... You and your wife should now go visit an Animal shelter and give another dog (or cat!) a great new home...

    Sorry for your loss. They are like family members. I just went though that 2 years ago and it still hurts.

    Thank you. Unfortunately, that is another thing that comes with old age. The cat or dog will outlive the owner so it is not fair to someone else to have to "inherit" them. I really like cats too, and our recent ones were 2 Siamese. One died about a year ago. The other one had surgery a couple of weeks ago and the vet said it had some type of rare cancer that they did not get all of, and would probably only live another 6 weeks. My wife still has a few Llamas at the farm, down from 17. They are pretty old now so that clock is ticking too.
