Independence Day

Happy independence Day. Growing up in the frozen north,we had 2 independence Day celebrations, the first and fourth. Fireworks on the first,on the Canadian side of the river,and on the fourth our side. I want to wish you all a Happy independence Day,have fun and stay safe. Remember those who are fighting for the freedom of others,so that one day they can celebrate their own independence.

I painted this Mustang a while back. Jan loves her little car and is keeping it up nicely. I had it back this time to put new rubber in the wing windows. She also noticed some spots,so I looked into them. RUST,it's the cancer of auto body,and here in the Keys it is a constant. We have a very corosive atmosphere. The pic's show the spots after I sanblasted them. Then fiberglass to make the repair waterproof.Painted it will be good as new,till the next time. Rust is a constant.

OK, back to work.

Well now that the Blog is working,lets get back to what this Blog is about. I was given a secret project at work (my"real"job). The Head of Operations is retiring,and the Owners wanted to give him a going away present.He is moving away,and his new place has a large yard,so a riding lawn mower was in order.Not just any mower would do.Joe has been with the company for 33 years and started as a Conch Tour Train driver.They had me build him a Conch Train Mower.We gave it to him at his going away party.I think he likes it.

So cool,sort of

I have been working at getting my own server set up so I could post pictures again. With the help of helios at lobby4linux who saw my post about seting up a server,and and Emailed me some helpful information.

I was so close,am so close.I was just testing it and I find Blogger has added pic posting, very cool.My thanks to all the folks at Blogger,this is great. And check out the Blog of Helios at http://lobby4linux.com/WordPress/

Lets try this.

If this works,you should see a picture of one of my cats(we have many).Little Miss pesters me when I am at the computer. I think she may be spending too much time in front of it.

New toy

Well I got my new camera.My wife went out and got me a HP M407.Seems to be a nice little camera.It was not listed on the "digikam" list of supported cameras,but it was detected and loaded just fine. Then I tried to load the included software on my Win C partition,it took 2hours.windows kept shuting down,reboot-start over,reboot-start over,reboot-start over...10 minutes in Linux, 2 hours in Win xp. I hate Windows. For my next trick, I will learn to set up a server so I can post pictures again.I'm on my way,lots to learn.
