So, today is Game Day! My youngest will have her first softball game this evening at 6pm – I’m scared and happy at the same time! I am so looking forward to it!
My car passed emissions yesterday with flying colors! All thanks to the hard work from Roy at Swedish Connection. Go check out that page for more information if you’re interested.
The twins will start their volleyball season this week as well. It’s official, the madness has begun!
Wow! Over a year of no updates!
I’m still working at the same place – although that’s getting old and the subject of another post.
The kids are busy with school and now with sports. I don’t think we’ll have free time until then end of June.
I had the 262C running fine but something happened to the engine, it just wouldn’t start and stay running. I tried everything short of re-flashing the firmware on the MegaSquirt but it looks like I lost one or two cylinders. The wife and I started doing some thinking and after doing a cost-benefit we decided that the best solution at this time is to let the Bertone go. It helped that I got a bonus for some work I had done back in Deceber 2014 – it paid for the car.
I’m moving forward with metal work – welding/fabricating/casting – I think its fascinating. I’m also getting the reloading hobby off the ground as well.
More coming soon. I need a place to put eveything I’m up to, forgot that I had a web page! LOL.
Had a GREAT day, up until the Cats went and lost in double over-time to the scum devils 🙁
Had a good day at work, got to have a fantastic lunch with the wife :). That was the high-light of my day. I NEVER get to have lunch with the wife unless she’s on my side of town, since I don’t get to drive around anymore. We went to the Cheesecake Factory, my buddy Roy had gotten me a gift certificate for my birthday that we hadn’t had a chance to use and it worked out great!
Coming back from lunch the temp gauge on the car started to rise – troubleshooting it at different stops – it was the relay. Even though it says 40-amps on it, don’t believe a Checker/Oreilly/Autozone relay. Time to invest in a couple of good relays (one for standby) or get a PWM controller.
So I get back in the office and my wife tells me that one of my girls got ZERO Valentine cards from her classmates, while her twin did. She was devastated, I was heart-broken. I will do my best to bring up her spirits and let her know she’s loved.
Lastly – I scaled the images I’m going to use for what I have to start with for images for my firearms stuff, mainly my AMD-65 build pictures and a few of the CZ-52 pistol. I need to take new pictures of it after having repainted it with ceramic coating to silver and black.
Thanks enough for tonight, will add more this weekend I’m sure.
