      Do you have yearly inspections and emissions testing? We do and I don't like having to pay that money each year. Where I used to live we only had emissions testing and it was free.

      Be thankful you don't have to deal with the yearly inspection in the UK. One year my car failed on one single count. The button for the rear fog lights (high intensity rear-facing red lights) had a light on it that lit up to let the driver know the rear fog lights were on (in the UK it's an offense, although rarely prosecuted, to run rear fog lights unless visibility is severely restricted). The light on the button had failed, and on that basis my car was considered unroadworthy. I fixed it myself with a new bulb that cost less than $5 but the garage was going to charge me closer to $100 by the time they had sourced the genuine part from the manufacturer and added labor to the bill.

      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.

      Cutting up pieces of wood. Whatever genius designed my windows never considered the possibility I might want to put an air conditioner in them. So the part of the air conditioner that should sit in the channel where the inner window pane slots won't fit there, because of an outer lip on the window. So I've been cutting up pieces of wood to make brackets that fit into that slot and effectively present a raised slot so that the air conditioner can sit in it. I've got one fitted so far, and two more preparing. One has been varnished to keep the water off and is drying, another is clamped and gluing. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll have all of my air conditioners in place.

      It feels like I haven't stopped today. From getting the study cleaned up (I made a huge mess in the hope that fixing the brutal cold in the winter would be an easy job, and it wasn't. I got so far and then realised that it seems a monkey built an extension, which means I can't put my insulation panels in without taking an angle grinder to the concrete blocks. I don't want to make that much mess again so I'm going to leave it as-is until I've got the new study sorted out and can empty the old study completely.

      So the old study needed a good clean so it's ready to put my laptop back in there, and the bracket to mount the air conditioner needed preparation and lacquering to protect it from the weather. Then our bedroom needed a bracket and, once the study was cleaned up, I took the shop vac with the cyclonic separator down to the basement to clean up a mountain of sawdust that has accumulated while the shop vac was upstairs cleaning up the concrete dust.

      Now I can figure out how to run my table saw and miter saw into the separator and power it all from a single shop vac. I'll need to run some new sockets but will probably do that based on an extension cord rather than permanently wiring them. That way I can run the miter saw and table saw on the same circuit (they never run at the same time) and the shop vac on another circuit. I need to do it that way because the current draw from one of the saws and the shop vac is more than one standard circuit can supply.

      Just tested out my new router. Never used a router before. So far I only have one bit for it, a Roman ogee bit. I should have bought the next size up, the one I have is a little small. Live and learn....

      Now I'm going to need some form of storage for chucks, bits, wrenches etc for the router....

      Tomorrow's task is either going to involve using my pipe wrench or designing some form of storage for my growing collection of bits, blades etc. I'm going to need a new table saw blade soon and already have a growing collection of blades for my jigsaw, sabre saw, circular saw etc, as well as a couple for the table saw. Then come the drill bits, screwdriver bits and, coming soon, router bits. Maybe both, if I'm lucky.
