Sitting down fun work, hand tapping a couple dozen #10/32 in #21 holes in Aluminum.
Pizzed off at the April 9th House of Reps BS. I know that game is a true House of Cards.
Aryan Brotherhood is a dam'd prison gang, well known for drug trafficking & helping do the money laundering for the bigger crooks.
Russia 2.0 and no one sees it coming.
Not much I can do, but keep on prepping and CMA.

Standing up fun work for me Andy! Ignition module should be here today so can finally get to the 6-8ft/5-ft diameter grasses I missed getting last fall on our property/neighbors property. Excited to see them explode again this year, some are absolute monsters, great privacy fencing for sure. Plus I get to take them up to the garden beds and burn them which is fun :D.

Finally got the freezer cleaned out with bleach, bags upon bags filled with tomatoes/mushrooms/greens I still have to seal and refreeze later on. Have been 'mowing' my 3/4 acres + neighbors lawn with the weed eater until I get a new lawn mower :lol: great exercise, and fun seeing my older neighbor across the street have his hands on his forehead like "wtf is wrong with him". I would never dare ask them to borrow their mower, because they wouldn't unfortunately.

After I get the grasses cut I can get back to the cherry that's been laying for a week or two now. Had to cancel the dremel saw blades since I saw I could just get them from the US a lot quicker.

Positivity to all of you, hope your day is awesome!\

Update: Grrrrrr. Module worked but was much longer than the OEM (despite being the exact Part # in the listing I needed) and gets pressed up against the cylinder and melts it to hell and back. Have to push it to the side but then it's right over the fan lol. Damn you china, damn you!

Cool! It'll be good to get yourself up and running. Yeppers, be positive, but just know what is out there lurking.

Now I got my head inside 2 pin JST plugs for each fan & a pair of MOLEX-8Pin plugs for figuring pinouts and wiring. My 12VDC 50Amp Power Supply's 12VDC socket had no power. The + wire had a cold solder joint that snapped. Now is working, so I can test my Fan circuits easier. I'm SO close to being finished, the final install into walls will be quick and easy........GrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrAnimals! :mrgreen:

Refrigerators vs Seal A Meal etc
Just over 2 years ago, my 16 CuFt fridge died. So shopping around took over a month, they're a big ticket item. By that time I'd adapted to having no fridge, cooking enough for one meal, usually slow cooker.
After ~6 weeks, decided to get a bar sized fridge, found a used one for $30, but it was only used for a month.
My electrical bill went down ~50 per month. From less storage, I'd learned to live almost without fridge.
6 months ago, the bar fridge died. I decided I would learn to live 24/7 without a fridge.
I learned to use Slow Cooker, kept on low overnight, for tomorrow's meal.
Leading me to rely on Seal A Meal for most storage.

My point?
Practice getting along without fridge/freezer, or at least have that plan in place. Plan meals & cook timing time of day, from dinner to breakfast next day.

I did all sorts of things. :mrgreen:
I finished half of all sorts of things. :D
I added to ToDo LIST. I organized my task flow by order of operations for the dam'd FINAL install, I hope.
That's the engineer's joke meaning "Which comes first, the chicken or the egg?"

I hope to finish the last half of things by Friday & complete installs!
The heat is ON!

Oh, btw, that Netflix series was Wayward Pines, where the self-righteous cryogenically froze their selves.
They should have stayed frozen.

Got the chainsaw running despite the faulty ignition coil, so can finally get started on outdoors work today. Definitely need a new bar since my current one is all bent from the multiple times trees fell on them. Giving it a break from cutting firewood for a while do to this, got a good bit so I'm fine with it for now. Seriously need a lawn mower next month, weed whacking 3/4ths acre is fun and all but damn would I rather not! :mrgreen:

Hope everyone is doing well. Stay preppin, stay alert but most importantly, stay positive!

Did some catching up on vids.
People best be learning weaponry. Civil War is coming, I'd guesstimate around November 2020 if IAF is correct on crops & GSM etc.
Anyone who says differently is either stoopid or in denial of nasty tribal history & Mexico's Reconquista plans in the works.
I am NOT talking about the good Native American Indians in my reference to the tribe.

Cutting holes in walls, using a Wire Fish Line to pull wires through from A to B etc. Fun stuff to do in these projects.
Getting together a Seed list to order for the Kid. I sent him several GSM books already, Anita's Cold Times and John Casey books. Also Spencer's (I think), Not by Fire, but by Ice. That's a really good book the Kid said.
Trying to get Kid to get 4 Rabbits, 2 males & 2 females. I told him he needs to keep them separate. For now. I would buy them for him, but can't, the order process doesn't do gifting of rabbits :mrgreen:
People who have rabbits have a valuable bartering tool for survival.

Moving on!

Do not donate any blood.
Do not agree to be an organ donor.
30 to 40 years would be just about right.

I'm watching Mung Bean seeds sprout.
My whole wheat organic flour price increased by 32 cents.
Finished up another Control Panel, 8 circuits for someone else. I'll upload a photo, I think.
