  • this is for John B

    Knowing how John hates winter I just wanted him to know it ain't all peaches and cream here either. The pool has only gotten into the 8o's twice so far this year.

    Was in a friend's pool yesterday and the water was 91.

    It was cooler on the pool deck with the evaporation--even thought it was 97 here yesterday.

      The ocean by me is still in the low 60's. We took the boat over to the beach last sunday first time out this season.

        G'day Rob,
        I'll be thinking of you blokes when it snows over there.
        I'm getting sick of scraping frost of windscreens.
        If you can find a spot to stay out of the wind the days are pretty glorious, sunny and max of between 14 and 20c, but that bloody wind is lazy.
        Regards

          know what you mean. I'm a little over a mile from Lake Champlain and I'll bet a bundle it's NOT 80F We used to joke about NNAP syndrome in the lake.

              +12.1C (low fifties) here tonight. Up in the mountains some lakes are still mostly covered with ice. No problem with too hot water! ;-)

                BTW guys these views of Lake Chaplain is the West channel Between Valcour Island and NY. It is also the exact site of the first American Naval battle. The green American fleet under the command of Benedict Arnold got it's butt kicked by the British under General Schylur
                They quit the fight at sun down to be finished in the morning. Not wanting to over do on a good thing left during the night. Ben scuttled a couple badly damaged gun boats off what is now Schylur Island, six miles south of the battle sight. Pressing on the Brits caught the fleet at Split Rock took the boats and put everyone ashore and the walked back to Fort Ticonderoga at the tips of Lake Champlain and Lake George.
                If you use Google earth search Valcour Island
                Sorry for running on and please watch your step as you disembark.
                Thank you for using Tour by Oily
                As a side note. notice the signage on the boat launch. I think it doubles as an evolution reversal water entry point.

                    John B,
                    Any homes for sale nearby? I could use a winter home when it's summer here.

                        G'day Woodsman,
                        Plenty of homes for sale. the average price in Kalgoorlie is about $350,000.
                        I have had to scrape ice of windscreens for the past 5 mornings. Come on Autumn, a glorious time of year and a chance for me to thaw out
                        Regards

                          Price is a little on the high side since I only want it for about 4 months out of the year.
                          If it were 1/2 that I would be on a flight tomorrow.

                            Oh the agony!!! Pool water only 90, while the air temperature only 92. Far too cold to go swimming here...Over to Myrtle Beach in late February, went wading on the beach until my feet turned blue--about 3 seconds. There was a group further up the beach swimming--those were the Canadians. On the darker side, I lived in New York State, about 20 miles from the shores of Lake Erie, where the snow flies 11 1/2 out of 12 months, for 60 years. I wasn't born in the south, but I got here as quick as I could!

                              A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.
