I'll keep it short because I'm tired and annoyed.

First, I spent all day playing detective trying to track down an awol soldier just out of basic training. Nothing like talking to a weeping mother trying to find their kid to send them to jail.

Next, I'm being deployed to New Jersey for a while. My first reaction was to ask them about Afghanistan instead, but apparently they're full up there. Their range crew is being deployed themselves, so some of us who took those classes are being moved in.

I also got stung by a bee. **** little *******, the **** was it even doing in the city? Bees don't belong in the city!

So weekend plans, go. Mine is to not kill some people. And to pack and get ready for five days a week in such a wonderful state as New Jersey. Bleh.

I'm guessing he'd go AWOL because he's being sent overseas? Yeah, I don't envy you that duty.

NJ's not THAT bad. Smiley: frown Though Dix is sort of in the middle of nowhere (if that's where you're headed)... If you ever relocated there, I'm pretty sure there's a good chance my brother would be one of your daughter's teachers. The irony there is that you'd be closer to my work than I am. Smiley: lol

As for the bee thing, there are some rooftop apiaries in the city. Were you near Union Sq. park? One of the buildings adjacent to it has one.

It's autumn, bees run around everywhere desperately looking for something to sting. It's like a last fling before they die an icy death in a month or two, assuming they live through the sting that is. Even then it's gotta be a better way to go you figure?

This is the first weekend in a while I'm not doing anything. No crazy relatives, no road trips, etc. Good times, I'm sure the wife will come up with something to fill the time, but until then I'm free.

Yay. Smiley: yippee

Also, I was listening to this (see below) last night, and my daughter came by the computer and said she liked my music. I suppose she really is related to me. Smiley: lol

Sorry to hear about your move, Lolgaxe, since I assume it'll be a disruption on your personal life. Obviously you knew what the job was when you took it and NJ has fewer IEDs per sq mile than some other places but still sucks.

Not much going on here tomorrow but Sunday we're planning on taking the little guy to the Lincoln Park Zoo in the city. Never been before, I've always gone to Brookfield Zoo in the suburbs but we're trying something new. They just did a major renovation there within the last six years so I assume it's still fairly snazzy.

Should find out if the other guy went AWOL because he was the one who was going to be sent to Jersey before you? On the plus side, if you do end up killing people in New Jersey, you get a humanitarian relief medal!

No major plans this weekend. I'm hopeing we finally will stop having record levels of rain long enough for me to mow my lawn, which threatens to take over the house. Other than that, my project for the weekend is more work on getting the CNC up and running, as well as more 3D printing stuff. I've been working on designing a new end clamp design that should be much more accurate. if it works as well as I hope, it may be retrofitable to a few thousand 3D printers in the mendelmax family, which would be cool. Next up i get to try and figure out how heat set plastic inserts actually work

It looks like that so far:

No real plans for this weekend, since we're sick and broke, but I'm gonna try and get the kayak out on the river Sunday since the weather should still be nice.

Spent yesterday at Web Afternoon Atlanta. 14 speakers in 6 hours, talking about web design. Two of them graduated from my high school and remembered me, which was cool too. (Class before mine so I don't have to feel quite so loser-ish being in the audience and not speaking in front of them.)

Today is getting in some sunshine-outdoor time before the hurricane hits tomorrow, and then I've nothing on my plate for the next three weeks, And that is nice.

lolgaxe you have my permission to shoot any cans of sunless tanning spray and sun oil you see.

Well, the weather wasn't so nice. It was gray and blah. So I paddled out in the river and had lunch on an island.

I... think I do, too? (Yup, both my work county and my home county).

NJ gets them a lot, but the actual number of tornadoes we see is quite small (average of 3 a year). But I think the worst we've had in the past 70 years at least are injuries, no deaths.

I haven't, either.

Our biggest risk are, shockingly, noreasters and hurricanes. Flooding can be an issue too.

But isn't flooding a big issue in the Netherlands?

We just deal with lots of rain and the occasional exploding mountain while we wait for "the big one" to come and kill us all.

There was a possibility of ***** breaking in 1995 and some villages flooded but there was only material damage, the ***** were strengthened and raised after that, the ones on weaker soil are also checked yearly. The last major disaster was in 1953 which were the reason to start building the delta works which protect the vulnerable southwest of the country and are engineered to withstand storms that happen once every 10,000 years (it's declared one of the seven wonders of the modern world by the American society of civil engineers).

Basically, the Dutch have been fighting the sea for the past 400 years and we've gotten pretty good at it.






I also live about 60 meters above sea level so even a catastrophic flood wouldn't be any threat to me.

What is it with you guys and your forward thinking? We're lucky if we can get people to consider providing protection against a once-every-100-year event.

The first lakes were dried in the late 1500's in the Netherlands and significant parts of our country are below sea level and/or reclaimed from the sea. I think several hundred years of fighting water in it's various forms and the visible results of that in every part of our country has made it plenty clear that this is a long term thing, very long term.

Yeah, I actually had to work today. Smiley: motz

From Trenton last night I saw a bumper sticker that said "I am for children," which I misread as "I aim for children" which I at least enjoyed.
