Looking Up an Old Friend, Still Bad Fudge and repairing Clocks
|By: plapman, 12:03 PM GMT on March 23, 2012||+0|
Today will see clearing with a high of 21C(70F). UV index 3 or moderate.
Tonight will start partly cloudy then becoming cloudy overnight. The low is expected to be near 8C(46F).
It looks like my fudge will end up being topping to make sundaes. I cheecked on the web to see if the first attempt could be save and it said to add water and recook it. I did that and no matter how long I cooked it I coundn't get past 105F 7 degrees below the required 112f called for in the recipe. I was using a digital test thermometer I have that ranges from -40f to 450f and is garunteed for life to be +- 2 degrees F accurate. Well I like chocolate sundaes :) I could probably add a bit more coca powder and water and use it as a choclate syrup for chocolate milk.
Yesterday Abbey and me took the downtown route to pick up a drugs for the Queen. The ladies in the pharmacy sure like Abbey and pet her as soon as she comes in. Abbey would sure like to try one of the cholate bars they have on a lower shelf but I keep her from sniffing them and on good terms with the pharmisist.
Yesterday while going through the hoard looking for old photos of my girls to put on FB I came across a a 1977 journal I've kept. Taped to the front cover was a list of workmakes and their home phone numbers. I did a reverse lookup on one of the numbers and low and behold the man still has the same phone number. We used to be good friends and shared many a cool one, in the evening, while working together on Lake Winnipeg. I've lost contact with him since he was laid off in 1990 and decided to call him. Darn he wasn't home but I'll try again today and see how he's doing.
It's funny how I want to get in contact with old workmates now.
Today I'm going to make time to get at the small clock movement. If I can get it apart and back together. If I can do that I'll have to give the grandmother clock movement a cleaning and oiling. I think the verge may be bent too. Moving a pendulum clock with he pendulum still attached will do that.
