Just a quick and minor update

First of all, the book I mentioned earlier is definitely a winner.  I’m taking it slow and enjoying it a lot.  It’s full of really interesting and good information.

In other news, Craigslist came through for me.  I got a really nice heavy duty table saw for a good price, and now all I need tools-wise are a router with table and a decent jigsaw.  My wife is pretty understanding about what I did with my money so I should be able to proceed once I get my cast off.   Hopefully that will happen in the next week or so. :)

The Seaworthy Offshore Sailboat

My wife surprised me with a copy the other day, and I’ve started reading it.  I can already tell this is going to get rather dog-eared before I’m done.

In the introduction the author correctly notes that due to inflation and other price variances he can’t say how much stuff will cost in dollars.  So, he’s doing it according to the price of beer.

I’m going to like this book… :)


Be careful what you ask for…

I took a new job recently, really kind of a small promotion at the company where I work.  We haven’t hired my replacement yet so I’m stuck doing both jobs, and looks like I’m heading into my second 20+ hour weekend in a row.

Sucks to be me, but it’s only temporary. :)
