Today will be sunny with a high of 18C(64F). UV index 7 or high.
Tonight will remain clear with an overnight low of 5C(41F).
It looks like the rain has finally stopped for a while. I started my walk with Abbey yesterday when the was a small hole in he cloud cover. About 5 minutes from home it started to pour so I turned around and came home.
yesterday i worked a bit on the old clock casr movement. I attached a pendulum rod to it and came up with an idea to make it shiny brass colored. I experimented on an old piece of angle iron using aluminum foil and contact cement. it turns out great. to get the brass color I'll use the wrapping from a caramilk bar on the rod. I should be able to do the same on an old draw pull I have in the hoard to make a shiny bob. It will be a silent clock but I have an idea to make a clock case and put a quartz novement in it that has westmisiter chimes. That's all I need is another clock in my house.:) The young ladies on the street will be safe for a while while I'm busy with the clock projects.
The grandmother clock is working great too. It is almost in sync with a quartz clock I use for checking it's timekeeping. The 2 are only seconds apart.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
