      Just helped my pastor out with a few computer issues, then stopped by the hardware store to replenish my stock of building foam. They're just a couple of miles away but it's good to know I have what I need rather than having to go out part way through a job, especially when the items in question are cheap. Today I expected to use one can and ended up using two cans.

      The area I'm working on was hovering between 59-60 degrees when I finished work and turned the heating off. Now, somewhere north of two hours later, it's dropped to 57 degrees. The outside temperature looks like it's still hovering around 35. So there's probably still room for improvement but the fact it hasn't nosedived is a good sign. Maybe I will get my insulation panels fitted before too long. That would be nice - get them off the floor and doing something more useful than taking up space. Hopefully before long they will start saving me some real money.

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      I checked the temperature in the room I'd been working. With the temperature outside not going over about 35, in a little over five hours the temperature in that area dropped from 59-60 to 56. So I guess the work I'm doing is continuing to yield results. We had an oil delivery the other day as well, which shows our oil usage is still down about 30% from where it used to be.

      At the moment I'm reading a rather interesting book on ...hmm...well, a human subject matter. The author pulls no punches and the views expressed without a hint of subterfuge. Straight forward and to the point. I'm not sure that I agree with all of them but it's uncanny in that some of the examples used I can identify in certain persons who are, or were, in my life at one time.

      Thinking about getting on with some work for the day. Despite spraying building foam into just about every accessible part of where my draft was coming from, I still have a draft. It's much reduced but still there, which is annoying.

      I think I'm going to have to pry some metal sheathing off the beam completely, then get in there with more building foam, and nail the sheathing back on. The maximum expanding foam won't cure properly until it gets a lot warmer and the minimum expanding foam needs the can to be inverted to spray it, which is tricky when working in this particular spcae.
