    A little over a year ago I found out I am 1/4 Cree!. I knew I had some native ancestry but I thought my great grandmother was 1/2 native, turns out my maternal grandmother was full blooded Cree! I also found out my paternal grandfather was born in 1845 on August 25, I was born on August 24.

    • Today, I underwent an operation to fix the cataracts in my right eye and have my vision corrected so it's good up close. If it turns out ok (needs a week to heal completely) I'll get the left eye done.

      • Arcane Hope it turns out well. With any luck you'll be able to discern at least the mm graduations again, if not the half mm! I'd already bought steel rules with only mm graduations for just that reason. I reckon I may have to find some that are only graduated every 5mm soon!

        • I removed another bee hive from a building.

            I'm interested how that turns out. Had one done last summer, and wanted about 18" focus, ended up at 9" or 10", apparently it is not too precise on how it turns out. I was OK with that part, though. Next one is upcoming, have not made the appt yet, waiting to see how things go this year..

            • Made a brass bushing, two transfer studs, and hacksawed (power) 51 square inches of 1018. Also crashed an insert hard enough to slightly mess up the holder (swiveled 4-way tool post into spinning chuck) and chipped a tiny chip by running my fresh insert into the live center tip when checking center height. Oh well, mistakes happen.

                How many hives do you have? You should consider bartering with honey.

                      internet meme for Canada goose. Often really agressive in public parks and beaches. And their cousins Barnacle goose eat the park grass to deserts and leave layer of poop everywhere.

                          I only have 12 hives and all of the honey is spoken for. I have a hard time keeping the stores I sell at stocked and when it runs out people get kinda wierd iykwim.

                          • Today I bought a new clothes washer and renewed my Lantus prescription which ate up almost C$1000.

                            • I made a brass adapter that the neighbor behind me needed for a new sort of pond waterfall project. And several of us had a nice evening by the chiminea drinking beer and yakking. One of the few benefits of semi-urban life.

                              it's harder to go over to the neighbors' when they are a half mile away. We just walk to the back of the yard and go through the hidden gate.

                                Which was more expensive?
                                At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.
