167 - Reading



  • This episode is going to be more like what I want from future episodes, just exploring a topic.
  • With project updates as progress occurs - a garage door update in the shop.
  • Reading, I try to read at least some every day.
  • I love reading, the use of imagination. While I watch a lot of movies and don't read many books, that's because movies are shorter. It's also easier to multi-task during a movie.
  • Reading in school.
  • My veracity for reading started in second grade.
  • The Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.
  • I've read a lot of Vonnegut, working through his books now.
  • Cormac McCarthy is my favorite author.

164 - 240v Electrical Work



  • Finalizing details. Will be splitting a 240v circuit to 120.
