@Builder,
The AstraZeneca shot should be OK.

It is like the Johnson & Johnson shot in that people can still get mild cases, but both shots are 100% effective at preventing COVID fatalities.

The giddiness of my boyfriend and his sister when I dropped off the bunny and puppy toys I'd knit for them. The fella is in his terrible 2s and is a delight even when he seems to be possessed. He is still wonderfully shouty.

@ehBeth,
On Wednesday, the police reported on Wednesday that they had dug a workshop for packaging the synthetic drug Ecstasy in the Paris' northern suburb of Saint-Ouen and confiscated hot party goods worth one million euros. Attached photos showed small bags of pink powder and pink pills.

Two days later, the public prosecutor’s office just reported that, according to a toxicological study, the powder had nothing to do with “narcotics or other toxic substances.” In fact, it was “crushed” foam sugar strawberries from Haribo, which are also called “Tagada” in France, specified a source close to the investigation.

@Walter Hinteler,
Good ole' Law enforcement, out there protecting people from themselves.
But the perps probably belong in jail for fraud and counterfeiting anyway Smile


Thanks for the first morning smile Walter.

@Walter Hinteler,
The people in question did have equipment associated with narcotics production. My guess is they were planning on selling them as ecstasy and pissing a load of people off.

Actually, in addition to the 25 kg of pink 'Haribo-raspberry' powder, the investigators found 23 stolen telephones, a machine used to make MDMA pills ("ecstasy"), and 800 euros in cash.

All this pushed the topic into second place on the (French) Twitter top trending list, with more than 9,000 posts on the subject. Just behind the announcement of the future confrontation between Bayern and PSG in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Pulled the trigger on a major purchase I've been keen on for a while. eBay chipped in 300 shekels to sweeten the pot, so that makes me smile. A dedicated AC-DC Tig welding machine (Aussie made, of course) and for a career wood worker, this is a major jump into the unknown.

@Builder,
Have fun with it! I've been on the fence about entering that rat-hole for years. I may spring for a metal lathe instead.

@Builder,
I bought a TIG setup. I should have gone with MIG instead. I don’t do enough of it to keep proficient.
TIG welding is technically better but it requires about ten times the skill and practice compared to MIG.

There's a growing market here for tiny indoor fire-boxes. Either wood-fired, or LPG. Importing them from Canada is prohibitively expensive. Thin stainless sheet, mostly, so mig is out of the picture.

@Builder,
You can MIG SS but thin stuff is tricky. If you’re going to do production then you got the right tool.

Why "rat-hole"? I'm actively setting myself up for retirement income from a comfortable seat in my own workshop.

@Builder,
'Rabbit hole' might have been a better choice; I was referring to the experience of learning a new skill and suddenly having to acquire gear that you never knew you needed. No offense intended; sounds like a good plan.

The impetus came after getting three quotes for what I would have thought was a quite basic welding job. I have experience with oxy-acetyline welding, and mig and stick welding, but it looks like it is time I found out about tig welding.

So many video tutorials to view, but learning new skills keeps the mind sharp.

Elon Musk's prediction about bitcoin coming true.

Lots of people won't be smiling about it, though.

Well it was actually two days ago -

When getting pictures before Prom - and talking with my the mom of my daughter's date....now my daughter was up at 8am to start the full day process of getting ready (hair, makeup appointments, etc.)...she asks her son - who long did it take you to get ready.

Hmm he says --- about 10 minutes!
