Home Page I had kind of a crummy day at work today. I am glad it is over. The agenda tommorow is as follows: Load truck and head down to Greg's house. Meet Greg at 6:45. Load truck some more. Head to scrap metal yard. Sell scrap metal. Have breakfast, I am having steak and eggs. We are then heading to Doug's house. Since he had back surgery and she (shann) broke her leg, I figured we could help these two out on the their farm. I hear we have to move some heavy equipment around, close the pool and perhaps a few other things. After that, I have to practice my speech for 6:00 pm delivery at the Toastmasters area 6 contest. I hope I win, but it is fine if I don't. It is tough competition. I still may have some time to work on the house, I got the J-channel I needed for upstairs Friday afternoon. There are so many things to do. Arrgghh/..
I had an job interview yesterday (the second one) things seem pretty good. We will have to wait and see where this goes. I scoped out a couple of old mills in the country as well. I located the Solon Pond Mill (in my book) and the Smithfield Flats Mill (not in my book). The Smithfield one is a large mill with a very good sized wood dam. It appeared to be in reasonable condition, albeit wood construction. It is definately a cool place. I took a few digital photos.
Home Page I decided what my term project will be on.. for my "Theory of Classification" class. I am going to work on the classification of junk! I have the experience, the interest... the junk! My most recent experience with hamfest junk lead me to believe that this is the topic for me. Stay tuned.
Home Page The Elmira hamfest was yesterday. I loaded up the truck on thursday night which took about 3 hours. Greg Mills and I left Rochester for the hamfest and it took about 2.5 hours to get to Elmira. We set some stuff up then went to this weird chicken place. The layout was weird, the people were weird. It looked like a setting for the begining of an X-file program or something. The chicken was dry. VERY disappointing. I like to try weird places... often they have great food, not in this case however. The hamfest went off after I got 4 hours of sleep in a tent. There was thick frost when I got up and people started buying stuff at 5:30 am. We packed up and went home about 3 pm. All in all it was a good time. <br
