    Has anyone noticed that keyboard auto correction on a phone one hundred percent fails if you dont type the the first letter of a word that's at or over five letters long, even if you spell the rest of that word correctly?...Or is it just my phone?...

    Hadn't thought of that. My Benchmade has been in my pocket for so many years I never even think about it. If there is some sundry I've forgotten the .45 should help. 45ACP has been a problem solver for well over a century.

    already ate the Snickers

    to see my son at 12 struggle with a date..
    not knowing what to say or do, he did well..
    Seo Yoon was polite and sweet. I also could tell she had some nerves as well.
    her father a low level executive at a local insurance firm said " 15 years ago we went to find a better way of life. this makes me happy."
    and a hug ended the date.
    Today I found him parked in front of the mini SEGA.
    some things never change..

    Its been a great day so far today, still at work for another five hours, definitely feel the temperature difference, much cooler in the building as well as outside...

    I got a lot done at home over the weekend, also redesigned my faraday cage to save some money, planning on installing it before the end of this month...I need it before x-mas...

    That's a good episode of Fringe lol, I like that show...My faraday cage will still be large enough to sleep in and store some electronic components for safe keeping, but I need it to test something I'm building and do not want any outside interference when I switch it on...:Whistle:

    At the end of my two days off, I managed to tear down the sheetrock on the walls of the 2nd bedroom, sprayfoamed the cracks around the windows and around the edges of the wood flooring put in insulation and put up all new sheetrock. I did the ceiling bout a month ago. Guess i will throw mud on in the evening after work during the week.

    I don't know how I missed this show. But I've started watching it. So far I like it a lot.
    Thanks.

    I have all 5 seasons of Fringe on DVD. I loved seasons 1 - 4 but I couldn't get on board with season 5. It was too weird the way they jumped into the future in season 5.

    I also loved season 1 of Mindhunter, even though Anna Torv had a relatively small role in the series. Season 2 has had a lot of delays. I think it was finally released in August. Not sure because I got rid of Netflix.

    Woke up at 0300 for no reason. Feet killing me. My left shoulder has apparently taken a Minie ball or bayonet wound overnight although I don't see any blood. Perhaps a past life coming through. Popped the middle finger of my right hand out of joint doing what we all do in the morning, and that just isn't fair. Got it snapped back in. Eventually.

    @Shadowprophet I say Indiana Jones is right. Not the years, its the mileage.

    Enough whining for me today. Just had to get that out. Another pot of percolated deathwish coffee ought to do it ......

    so I had a long chat with Ian. he sits next to Seo Yoon. he been sharing lunch with her. taking her to McDonald's or Burger King on his allowance. He even calls her his Girlfriend. A talk with his teachers shows the truth . He is trying to impress his friends. to be part of the crowd. if he continues he will hurt her.
    At 12 he needs social interaction. but he risk much .

    My left arm and hand has always been the dominate over the right side until a few years ago I started training the right and balancing the workloads and I've become closer to being ambidextrous now...There was no particular reason at the time for doing that, but glad I did, this past year I've felt my left shoulder and elbow joints aching noticeably but randomly, not every day and tenons in my left hand sore but not every day and never felt any of that before this year...The right arm is slowly taking on more responsibility as time goes on but perhaps that's what started it all, giving that left arm more rest, too much rest lol...

    Broke my right hand hand years ago and lost the use of it for months - required a couple of operations to repair. Learned to write lefty. Doubt I still can. Osteoarthritis I am used to but autoimmune diseases run in my family and I am a little concerned. Just got screened as negative but will have to keep checking.
