The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

One of the crew welds a well onto a mixing tank.

Weeks pass in a blur. Being part of getting a new company off the ground is consuming enough but we’re also going through some family medical issues. The unfortunate thing is they’re a few provinces away which makes things difficult.

Last year was so full, I didn’t get any sort of chance to get away, though with my throttle arm being what it is, I’m not sure how that would have played out anyway. Still, that leaves me with extra time on the books for this year.

So that in a nutshell is why I haven’t been posting. I didn’t feel putting up bits about me designing tanks or welding stuff wouldn’t be too interesting. Though I’ve started to experiment with stop motion and the results are a bit cool. And yes, that’s my ugly mug in the videos.

I’ve also started to experiment with animation in Solidworks for some of our design presentations. Maybe not too cool to most but you get a bunch of engineers in a room and show them how their gear is going to look in operation and it causes a stir.

Anyway, as a result a lot of other things have fallen by the wayside and I’m trying very hard to get back into my photography as well as completing my next travel book and completing the the last Sean Addison book. Though to be fair, Amazon has been such a shit show for the last bit I’m going to be going wide with it and reissuing the other books in the series wide as well. To be honest, I’m having a hard time breaking the inertia to write after a long day at work. I’ll keep trying though.

On a comical note, I was having issues with our dryer telling us there was a blockage in the dryer vent. After checking the outlet (which was clear) I finally buckled and pulled apart the dryer vent line deeper in the house. It was full (and I mean full) of pine cones. Seems it had been used for Winter storage. I removed the blockage and then discovered it had burned out the Thyristor control pack on the vent line’s booster fan. Lucky for me I knew how to wire up a bypass. So now the fan is on or off by switch when we go to dry our clothes. The automatic start was a nice function but life goes on without it.

I will try to post more to the blog but seeing how chaotic my life currently remains, I’m not sure how well that’s going to play out.
