Farm sale closes in two weeks.  18 days.

Still a good bit of stuff to do.

Minimal posting for a few days.

Break time...

Working at the farm today. Breaking for a late lunch/early dinner/main meal of the day...

Had the 50th Annual Ski to Sea Race pass through town this morning - the road bicycle leg.


Not too many racers at 10AM but there were about 600 teams that signed up and so far, 474 teams have completed the course.

At the apartment for a meal and to take care of some stuff - back to the farm later...

Yesterday's server problem was traced to some networking issues but I could not find why.
Later last evening, the UPS feeding the downstairs network switch started beeping indicating a fault condition.  Ah Ha!!!
Backup unit installed and everything is running just fine (knocking on wood).

Was at coffee this morning when I got a text that the file server for our Point of Sale system was throwing hairballs.

Got the 50th anniversary of the Ski to Sea relay race coming through town tomorrow morning.
Did ham radio for the event for about ten years - there would be spotters for the road bicycles about five miles out and they would call out the bib numbers.  I would receive, confirm the numbers and then announce them over the PA system so the canoe racers could get ready to hand off.  I would also monitor EMS frequencies for any problems along the course.

A very fun community - a great event for people-watching.
Looking forward to getting involved in similar operations after I move

Working at the farm this morning.  Break for coffee in a couple of hours.

Getting a new dumpster delivered tomorrow - #7 and this is a big 20 yard unit, not the little ones you see outside of businesses. Winnowing out the crap.

More later tonight.

All work and no play...

From Gateway Pundit:

92-Year-Old George Soros Denies Rumor that He’s Dead: “I Am Alive and Healthy”
George Soros, a billionaire Democrat mega-donor who financed coups here in the country and abroad, denied the rumors about his death this morning.

Oh well...

He is going to be in for quite the surprise when he passes over...

Strictly at the rumor stage right now but there is word that he had a fatal heart attack.

He is high on Satan's list - probably has a Concierge demon waiting just for him at the gates.

Heading South for the day

Today is 4/20 day.  Yesterday was Bicycle Day.  Partial solar eclipse. NASA Satellite crashing to Earth somewhere.

Starship got off the pad but went Ka-Boom on seperation.
The key thing is that the booster is the most powerful rocket motor ever launched.
Three times the power of the Saturn 5 that launched the Apollo moon landings.

Earth Day is in two days - also Lenin's Birthday (appropriate)

Selling a couple utility trailers on Craigslist and realized that I need to get my end of the paperwork...

Heading in to town to take care of that.  After coffee of course - priorities...

Got a serious offer for the farm and it is the daughter of the couple I bought it from.  Keeping the homestead in the family.

Things seem to be falling into place - the universe is smiling

Long day today through Wednesday.

Have a buyer for my farmhouse.  Of course, this came just as I leased the place to some people for a year thinking that the real estate market was moribund. Life is interesting...

Conspiracy or not?  Supposedly photographed at President Trump's arraignment in NYC
Obvious signs of processing but the basic shape is "off" to say the least...


Found some photos while packing yesterday.
Here I am with my first car - a real Jeep CJ-5 - loved that thing and had it for a long time.

I'm about 19 or 20 - forget exactly when this was taken:


It's true...
