    Hey Slackers! And I say that with all due respect! Get up. A soggy today here in America's Trailer Park. I dislike Florida. But I'm vertical and moving so it's a good day.

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    Morning monkeys!

    Yesterday I was in Norwalk videotaping a building that is connected to Northrop Grumman. Was not allowed to video Northrop, but will need to in the future. The lawyers need to sort things out first.

    Moar office today.

    Be safe out there.

    Morning Monkeys.

    Still raining. What a great start to Oregon Summer. The rest of this week "should" be nice. I am riding in if it kills me, and it just might.

    I checked on the newly greenhoused garden this morning, and the growth since yesterday morning was shocking. I would estimate a roughly 50%+ additional growth to just about everything planted, even the plants that were struggling post hail damage. I am very much a fan of the greenhouse. No other plans.

    Yeah! Greenhouses are awesome! We had a small one set up inside by a window and also had lights in it! It was amazing how fast things would grow! They got too big for that little greenhouse pretty quickly!

    Yo kiddos. It's Tuesday. Why is it 54 degrees at the end of June? (Just thought I'd join the general whining about the weather thing... there should be a thread for that...)

    Anyhoo...

    Big gulps huh?

Never spoken but we always wanted each other. Even her mom asked me WTF took me so long to kiss her...............

    I'd have to imagine that if the incline was on fire they would have re-evacuated Manitou. Sounds like riding at Rampart might be out for a while though.

    I hope that you stay away from the fires and stay safe! If you need a place to crash in Denver for a bit, please let me know.

    Thanks man! Were in the clear for right now, but the way things have been going I might hit you up on that later. Everything is still west of the freeway, but thats my worry line too. It crosses that and I'll start getting agitated. :panic:

    Just read on the local paper website that Ute Valley park is on fire. If that is true most of these homes might be gone.

    The view as I left work today was no good, that's looking right at Boulder. Looks like they got a couple new fires on either side of the Flatirons. No bueno.

    For the CO guys, looks like we won't be riding Walker Ranch anytime soon. The last big fire there was what, 2000 I remember reading? Lots of burned out dry timber for that fire to chew through. I was there two weeks ago for a couple laps, too bad - that was good for a quick after work haul.

    It was an Ibupropen sort of afternoon. Spent the day modifying the steel brackets in the back of the new ambulances to accomodate the larger diameter of Aluminum M O2 tanks vs steel ones. Had to rebend and reshape 8 cresent shaped brackets using wrenches and a mini sledge. It took me 2.5 hours but it worked out perfectly.

    I sent you an email, but the same here. We have an uninhabited floor, so feel free to make the call if you need it.
