  1. Clear sailing.
    May the road rise to greet you.
  2. Drop me a line when you make landfall?

  3. Spare Marples chisels available
  4. "I am now 100% on solar power. I got rid of all paper publications for electronic versions. I moved into town and cut my commute in half. I am doing what I can."

    Good man. It's the way forward.

    Me, I'm on a kick to reduce our single usage plastic trash.

    My kids think I'm crazy.
  5. Your off topic post revealed a few things:

    The split between acceptance and denial is about 95:1 3% are unconvinced 1% can't be bothered. Those of us that accept our role (and responsibility) in causing the champnge in climate span all ages in the forum.

    Those in denial are uniformly over 60, mostly over 70.

    The way forward will be by young people pushing the deadweight overboard.

    For me, the solution is less: less activity, less stuff and less of me.

    Never in my lifetime did I anticipate honeybees or snow (do you remember snow?) would be rarities.

  6. Kudos on the bench.
    The threaded adjustment for the planing stop is clever.

  7. FYI - the SMC interface doesn't notify me of messages in this chain. I've migrated to the World's largest portable phone, running Android.

    If my response is delayed, it's only because my memory isn't prompting me... we're dealing with frequent basement flooding and that clears the deck of other concerns.

  8. All good, thanks! My wife thinks I'm better looking, I think I'm thinner and my boys think I'm smarter.

    The chicken seasoning was a hit.

    Things got real quiet at dinner, that night.

    Best regards,
  9. Thanks, Malcolm.

    I hope Terry's plane serves, it's a wonder.

  10. I can try to send some patties but they may not let me ship fresh prepared foods. I'll find a way.
