With sunrise just over an hour away, I'll say good morning now!

Gosh, mirocu. Your sign reminds me of the trivia that sometimes sticks in our brain housing group. Like I will always remember from my career the muzzle velocities of the M-16 and .45 as 3250 and 810 respectively. 1400 for my personal .357 sounds just about right.

I just applied for a job I donīt want tongue.gif


Actually I donīt think I have much against it, only that they request you know how to operate a CNC and evenings and night shifts are applied. Also itīs too far away on small roads so yeah, ticked all the boxes there rollinglaugh.gif


I only applied because the agency wanted me to. I still hope to find something much closer to where I live.

Those are the jobs that always hire you, the ones you really don't want but have to apply for, lol.

I certainly hope they wonīt write me back but if they do I will mysteriously fail to answer back as the mail somehow will end up in the spam filter where I accidentally delete it.

I actually avoided another job about three years ago when I had first lost the one I had. I heard they were hiring, it wasnīt too far away and was run by a guy I knew. Seemed perfect, right? Well, for some reason I almost got a stomach ache thinking about working there so I did everything I could to stay out of contact because I knew they were trying to get in touch with me as they had heard I was unemployed.

After some time had passed, six months maybe, I heard the news that they had declared bankruptcy. So even if I hadnīt hidden in the corner and cried like a simpleton I would have lost that job anyway!



Donīt get me wrong here now, I do want some kind of job at some point. Just not this recent one (either) and not now; we have too many things to do at the cottage! laugh.gif

And when you are done with the cottage, you have to bring your little 'Cavator to "Murica" and help me with my son's house!


mirocu
Sure, I could do that. But donīt you think it would be far easier, cheaper and faster if you employed a cavator that is already in said 'Murica? laugh.gif

I took my car and truck with me to Germany - they left the US days before we did; and took a month to get to Bremerhaven after we arrived in Germany. But for two years I was able to drive my own car and truck in Germany!

And 'Murica has plenty of diesel once your vehicles get here. biggrin.gif

Canīt have a non-yellow cavator working, eh? biggrin.gif


Hmm, I wonder if itīs like the army banders that floats that my dad drove when he was doing his service. If so, I can just take it over the pond and hopefully I wonīt run out of diesel halfway across... laugh.gif



I took my car and truck with me to Germany - they left the US days before we did; and took a month to get to Bremerhaven after we arrived in Germany. But for two years I was able to drive my own car and truck in Germany!

And 'Murica has plenty of diesel once your vehicles get here. biggrin.gif

Vin Diesel for starters...

Okay, this promises to be a weird day. Firing up the computer this morning I was greeted to, amongst other things, an email from Amazon.com informing me that I order containing the book Fire in the Steppe shipped yesterday 29 Feb. That's all well and good, except that, as returned in another thread, that order arrived 12/13 Feb. The books has been read. I've moved on to other things.

To further confuse the issue, the tracking number Amazon supplies with the new email, when pasted in to USPS shipment tracking, appears to be for a totally different order, one I received 23 Dec 2015!

The order itself is sold through Amazon rather than by Amazon. I just finished shooting off an email to the actual seller to see if that is any validity to it being shipped again. On the plus side, I've received no notice from Amazon of being billed in association with this supposed shipment.

Other than that, this is primary day in my state. Naturally, potentially severe storms are expected to move through my area during the timeframe in which I prefer to vote.

Never fun to have those kind of online issues. I hope you wonīt get billed again and have to fight it wacko.gif


As for meself, Iīm off to get a new car key (or maybe kar cey? laugh.gif ) because my primary broke off when trying to force-open the door lock. Now I have Ballistol in the lock and it doesnīt seem to freeze smile.gif

Victor's Shack was getting on my nerves, so I downloaded Bond123's remake of it. Loved the wood (and red porcelain) textures he added, but although he gave the shack a new larger exterior; he used the same interior as the original. It was the complete opposite of the T.A.R.D.I.S. effect - so I expanded it. I used his textures to widen the interior; added tile floors in the kitchen to break up all that bright cedar flooring; and used a vanilla bathroom piece from the Ultraluxe on the Vegas Strip to give another break from the wood floor.

There is cooking crafting at the stove and fireplace (Thank you, Bond123) and I added drinking from the sink (Bond123's was a static). I did have a sit-able tub and toilet, but NV didn't like them, had to remove them. Will try again with an invisible seat on both.

I also added an outside porch and a ton of sandboxing inside and out. Now if I can just figure out how to get Cass to use some of it!


Here is the mod; all credit goes to Bond123, I just expanded on his great work to suit my own taste.

Evenin' all.

I hope a fine day has been had by all.
mirocu
Had a fine day at my end, though a bit costly as I got my new car key today. Also bought a few dryfiring shells for my pump action shotgun and also a hunting knife. Already have one but I really liked the look of this one and having released it from its package, it feels great to hold as well smile.gif

mirocu
Why? For having a car key, a shotgun and a hunting knife? tongue.gif
ghastley
Probably for the idea of hunting with a knife, when you already have a gun.

What's next? Packs Flocks of Crows pulling down Mammoths with their bare teeth beaks?
mirocu
I didnīt really plan to do the hunting part with it, more like using it when having shot something tongue.gif

I'm going to try to get multiple followers, and let them hang out and sandbox there like a club, lol. It is so much more fun when Cass is doing something instead of just standing there!

Really nice place smile.gif

Glad that key issues is done and over with! Now don't get water into the keyhole washing it, have it freeze up again, lol. (And if it does, for the gods sake: don't keep turning that key if it sticks; use a hair dryer or breathe into the lock; drop graphite or WD-40 into the lock; etc.

Decrepit, that sounds like one of those "Phishing" things, I'd be real careful responding to these, be careful what info if any you give them. Someone may have hacked into Amazon or that contributor's computer files and gotten just enough info to try and get you to give them info they could really use - bank info; SSN; address and phone number; etc.

I hope when you called them back it was on your known number for them and not any number you garnered from those faulty emails.

mirocu
It seems the Ballistol I got for my guns also work well on the lock as it leaves a film of sorts, it doesnīt run out of the lock like WD-40 or motor oil. At least thatīs my impression so far. But no, I wonīt do that forcing thing again. My wallet and I learned our lesson wink.gif

Well, yeah.

Those keys can be lethal in the right hands laugh.gif
mirocu
Or the wrong hands, depending how you see it.. biggrin.gif



Well, car is clean(er) now anyway and I also topped off the oil level. Ballistol will be applied later.
Callidus Thorn
Well, today's been a pretty good day. Got a new Dragonforce cd, which is always a good thing biggrin.gif and I managed to get just under four thousand words of my story written, which isn't bad for two and a half hours of writing without knowing in advance what I was going to write laugh.gif
mirocu
I take it you also managed to squeeze in some books and a walk? biggrin.gif
