    l cooked Steak a la Stoneham at my dad's tonight. Horace Stoneham was the NY Giants owner who brought the team to SF 60 years ago. My oldest brother came over for dinner and we watched the game while having dinner. My dad took him to the second ever MLB game on the west coast 60 years ago this week. Stoneham got Alfred's Steakhouse -- still in operation -- to make this dish and they added it to their menu. My dad has been copying it ever since. It is strips of steak tossed with spices and flour and fried up with some parsley, green onions and sherry. I'll post the "recipe" if anyone wants it, but it is mostly ingredients and methods but no quantities. Tasty stuff that reminds me of my childhood.

    It is a very good question, but he's used to fitting a lot into a small space. Or so he says. BTW, here's my role in the shop tonight: Lap Dog Lap

    It stopped raining long enough to take a couple of pics of the beams we replaced. I'm especially psyched about the LVL that replaced a completely rotten beam perpendicular to the house. And now we've turned into an electronics shop with Dr. Luvdunhill building the crossovers for Otis's speakers.

    Done! These are not just your standard two ways. Instead, Marc has paired basically a full range driver and a super tweeter, then customized a crossover to take best advantage of that pairing. These drivers have to stretch their legs before I can really assess them, but so far I'm impressed. They're bigger than I had originally thought I'd build them, but still, make a pretty good nearfield monitor. Bass is far better than I expected. Eventually, they will darken to match the Parasound case. The window will speed that process up.

    Stairs went in easy yesterday. Solid as a rock. Not sure these beams holding up our front porch had to be replaced, but we did it anyway.

    Here's the accompanying board for the GR HV & LV supplies. It's got a built-in controller to turn the HV on after a delay (if needed) along with a power LED indicator (flashing to solid). I've also added a tap for both Normal and Pro bias.

    I had a pair of these... And a 50" Panny Plasma in a small class C motorhome. This will be a walk in the park. We got one crossover finished, will most likely finish the other Tuesday eve. I'll glue on the Cherry baffles tonight, then it's just a matter of soldering on a few spade lugs.

    Today's project... 50" X 19" Birch butcher block, stained Gray. This will be the top of my new A/V rack, which is your typical wire shelving, but epoxy coated Black.

    Lacking brisket, I grilled a tri-tip instead. It’s more CA anyway. Went OK.

    Fried Chicken and Biscuits... It was my first time for both. Nothing perfect yet. The Biscuits came out a bit better than the chicken.

    Ultra Burger at Quinn's Pub. Duck egg, wild boar sloppy joe inside an onion ring, topping bacon, white cheddar, and an 8oz Pattie on a nice bun. Too bad they took med rare as "burn the shit out of it." Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk

    Heisenberg, Schrodinger, and Ohm are in a car. They get pulled over. Heisenberg is driving and the cop asks him "Do you know how fast you were going?" "No, but I know exactly where I am" Heisenberg replies. The cop says "You were doing 55 in a 35." Heisenberg throws up his hands and shouts "Great! Now I'm lost!" The cop thinks this is suspicious and orders him to pop open the trunk. He checks it out and says "Do you know you have a dead cat back here?" "We do now, asshole!" shouts Schrodinger. The cop moves to arrest them. Ohm resists.

    Grilled vegetables and medium rare NY strip steak. I was too hungry to take pictures. Washed in down with 2007 Sea Smoke Ten. They made a lovely couple.

    @justfuckingup You're really going to lecture me on posting etiquette when the majority of your whopping 16 posts on this forum involve you sniping at people, defending yourself for your sniping and trolling, or else telling the administrator to go ahead and ban you? I feel quite confident in my understanding of the norms here. It seems like you are the one who would feel better about yourself by fucking off out of here.

    A question about lard... I've just bought a Lodge Cast Iron Skillet and I'm going to try my hand at fried chicken. I wanted to come here for some recommendations on the type of lard (brand names would help too). I've also bought some White Lily flour for the accompanying biscuits with gravy.

    Second day in Sydney, lovely city this is. We're very close to the Harbor....when we got here, we took a walk down to the harbor and looked through a nice local market at an area called the Rocks. Got some absolutely amazing licorice there, the maker is a fucking genius at bringing some of the most unexpected ingredients together to make a delicious treat. Then got a distant pic of the Opera House (we'll tour it later), but some big-ass thing was in the way. Today, we did a hop-on-hop-off tour of the city, stopped in a few places including Bondi Beach, Chinatown, several market areas, and then I walked back to the hotel while Karen is still shopping Lot of walking, but enjoying this a lot!

    It's an optional 5v regulator (LM7805CDT) to power the delay timer. You can also use an external supply for the that. I've set this up so you can use either the built in current regulator on the grhv78xxx or the 08N100D as an external regulator.

    Enjoying this quite a lot more than I expected. Can not claim it's a sober assessment though.

    Acoustic guitar is wonderful. Haven't really rocked out yet, still loving Alison Krauss and Adele ATM. Hey, I'm gay, what'd you expect?

    Best bang for the buck, my vote is going to 'Gem Clear' .. for those of us too cheap to splurge on 'Everclear' ! Special vote also goes to anything that comes in an unlabeled repurposed gallon of water or milk. BBW Well for myself, along with all the very sophisticated people living in small mountain towns across 'merica.

    Killing Eve (BBC network) - a fantastically fun look into the mind of a killer-for-hire with zero empathy & the people charged with tracking her down. Also Lost in Space (Netflix reboot), which I am enjoying immensely as well.

    Finally got out to test the new brakes. Not your typical mid-April ride, with a light dusting of snow on the trails and temps in the low 30s... The brakes did squeal once on the trail which I'm hoping was an aberration or I'm going to be grumpy. They worked great though, and should improve with a few more rides.

    I was able to get the 450v supply up and running. I did have one error on the board. The current source feeding the 10v reference gets up to 150 degree F, but I can add more copper around it. I think it will be just fine. I was running this with a 110mA load.
