Medal Project Almost complete

By: plapman , 12:03 PM GMT on September 29, 2012

Today will be Partly cloudy with a high of28C(82F). The winds will be the South at 8-24kmp(5 to 15 mph).
Tonight will be mostly cloudy in the evening, then clear. The low ill be13c( 55F). the southerly flow will continue at 16to 24kmp(10 to 15 mph).
------------------------------------------------- --
Yesterday after my walk with Abbey I stripped the final medal gently washed the ribbons. today I'll remount them.
Yesterday , after doing research on the web, I found that a simple glue stick is non acidic, water soluble and safe for archiving. I tested it on a piece of plastic, using paper, and found that the bond is stronger than the paper. I can use the glue stick to remount the medals and if I have to re polish them they'll be easy to get at. Once remounted I'll place them in an airtight container, to slow the tarnishing process, and put the back in the shadow box.
When the medal project is done I'll get back to the downsized grandfather clock I had planned.

Good morning Tony. Looks like I beat MUSH again....ROFLMBO. Hope he does not trip on his barbell again trying to get here.

Just put a fresh pot of coffee on and am about to start taking all the pills I have to take now. Jeeze I have become a walking pharmacy.

Looks cool out there today but should warm up to a nice 66F. Tomorrow will be a bit cooler as some of your westerlies will be heading this way for a couple of days with rain.

I was surprised when I checked and saw that next weekend is our Thanksgiving. It's early this year for some odd reason. Not going to be doing much for it. Have to watch my diet closely for the next month to see if this new med works bringing my sugar levels down.

Anyway, have a great day. Enjoy your wknd.
