Minding my own business. When in the space of one swallow I had a sore throat. Add that to the constant runny nose and it’ll not be long before I need my face mask for more than just keeping the dust out. Actually I’m wondering if I shouldn’t put my pickle farther away from me […]

O.K. so don’t tell anyone, but
The other day I had a bit of a moment with tool buying. It was just me, Ani, and paypal, and we had a whopper of a good time. Well, it was good for me anyway. I finally broke down and bought me a With which I am hoping to do a bit of this […]
It is my great honour, and privilege, to present to you today.
The joy and anguish of my life. In all its grubby self. To take my mind off it being in the same room as me I bought it some new friends. The Optivisor… I got a 2x and it’s brilliant. I was a bit doubtful at first, but it really is cool. I have to […]
Oneupmanship or, why I might never have been born.
Yesterday I told my dad about my scary torch adventure, and wouldn’t you know it, he had a better one to tell. First off you have to understand that my dad is a 1930’s Londoner, and we all know that back then, in the dark days, things were a little different to how they are […]
So I made it.
I found a welding shop a little closer to me and bit the bullet. Before I left I did find an online shop which would deliver a tank of acetylene to me the next day. I didn’t use it as I’d lost my wrench (i.e. someone took it) and couldn’t get the regulator off. As […]
Oh god no! Or, where the hell is Scotty when you need him!
Again with the empty tank! Just when I finally seem to have recovered from my last, fraught with danger, danger, Will Robinson, acetylene tank refill trip, the darn thing’s empty again! What’s up with that! Surely I only just changed the old one out for the nice fire truck red one. I thought I was safe […]
Once upon a time I said I’d show you my doodles…
But that I was afraid your computers would explode as I doodle all of the time. Well buckle up, and perhaps you’ll want to steer clear of any electrical outlets… This was when I was having a little brain funk. Working on my font skills. Now, you might say that they’re all the same, and you’d […]
I am back in the saddle. If you’ve forgotten, here is a view of the central control station. Where all of the good stuff happens. And some of the bad. All nice and tidy and ready and waiting. I keep thinking I would like to get myself a proper jewelry bench. I like the idea of […]
Now, where were we…
The MIL has gone. She left on Saturday and has returned home to the freezing cold and fog of London, but at least we had half prepared her for the weather as even here, in Houston, it’s been a bit chilly. By the way, fog is one of my favourite weathers. I love it. You […]
