Spilled my coffee at lunch - twice - and nearly flooded out my co-worker and a group of ladies sitting nearby. Wow, that cup sure held a lot of coffee.

Later in the day I fried a nearly $2000 circuit board by doing something so stupid even stupid thought it was stupid. That's how my day ended. And there you have it, the bar has been set.

I know, not the worst that can happen but it feels like I got a "LOSER BEACON" going full tilt around the top of my head.

I feel for you but alas I had a pretty good day. My wife and I moved a shed that went about a ton around 75 feet and got it up on the footings without any drama.

It was pure "Roman" technology. Nothing but levers and rollers (sawed off dock pilings we found floating over the years) along with a block and tackle for the final tug. I did get into the 19th century with a come along for the final adjustments.

I hope things get better tomorrow for you.

Two days this week were traffic nightmares. Seemed like demo derby mornings. Ususl 50-60 min. trip doubled both mornings.

Other than the traffic issues, basically a normal workweek,
