      Lazy day today. Got home from church, had lunch and a nap in my recliner, then spent most of the afternoon sitting on the porch watching the world go by. It's a tough life.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      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.

      We have been getting the worst of Tropical Depression Florence for the last couple of hours. Fairly hard rain coming down now which is suppose to last until about 1 or 2 am or possibly later. The school district where I see kids is on a two hour delay tomorrow morning.

      I woke at 6:00 am, took another forty winks and then woke up for real at 7:50 am. Divine Service starts at 8:00 am, but I did manage to make it right at the Absolution. I was off today, which was an extra blessing. In fact, I found that so hard to believe that I stopped by the shop to reaffirm my schedule ( office drama/ lack of communication managed to foul up the schedule for a lot of us, but one supervisor made it right). So, I bought some Port and Sprite and enjoyed my day off.

      Having a coffee after experiencing total shock at the price tag of a new suit. My nephew's wedding is next month and it's required. Now I know why I don't wear suits. It does look pretty snazzy, though

      Glad you made it for part of service, but... Port and Sprite??

      JC Penney has reasonably priced suits (and tuxes too!).

      Trying to figure out how to get 12-foot 2x4s down from above head height when they are nailed into place at both ends. I can easily carry the weight of one beam but not from one end. And because everything is over head height I need ladders to get at them safely. Some of the nails won't come out so those beams may need to be cut. The challenge is releasing them in a way that doesn't let them fall to the ground, but I'm not sure how best to contain everything.

      I've been trying to take down the lath-and-plaster ceiling above the beams but it's proving fiddly, not least because I don't have clear access to everything. In the part I have pulled down so far I found another wiring surprise. I do enjoy wiring surprises. It's another bunch of nasty-looking knob and tube wiring. And I found another abandoned mouse nest. I suspect the mouse has long since died and decomposed, leaving the nest behind.

      I'm still cautiously optimistic that the nasty web of cables is such that I can just cut individual sections and the rest will work. There certainly seems to be little to no rhyme nor reason to how it's all strung together. I'm also cautiously optimistic that my outdoor porch light can be rewired fairly easily - I'm hoping to be able to join a new piece of cable to the old cable at the light fitting, then use the old cable to pull the new cable through into the house, then seal up the space around the new cable to make a nice seal so I don't get any more mice nesting in my ceiling cavities.

      Tango, can you nail or screw a small piece of wood on each side of those beams to hold it to the ceiling so that when you remove the real holding nails the beam won't drop? The small pieces of wood might? hold it up until you're ready to remove them?

      Adding onto this...what about a brace or holding ledge underneath?
