      I got some more cement fixed and some more insulation panels fitted. I discovered that I can cut it with my power saws. It makes a very clean cut - much cleaner and much straighter than I can do by hand - but it throws a horrendous amount of dust around. Because it's tricky to manoeuvre a honking great sheet of material onto a table saw I'm cutting strips that are a little wider than I need, then trimming them on the table saw. I just need to make a jig to maintain a straight edge because it's tricky to cut something when neither edge is quite straight.

      Using a circular saw also works but that's tricky because I need to make a suitable space around everything. It also throws lots of dust around. So the last job is to run the shop vac and gather up all the debris.

      I also needed to cut some shims to raise the level of the baseboards. They are now cut and nailed into place everywere that's exposed. I thought I could get away without removing a couple of other pieces of baseboard but sadly that won't work because the levels of baseboard will be slightly different if I do that.

      "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.

      I remember one time when I was working for a contractor and I ended up blowing the dust over everything because I had the vac flow adjusted backwards lol

      Finally got all the vinegar smell/taste out of the Keurig. I took it apart and cleaned every part and tube that would come off without wrecking the thing.
      Never. Again.
      But, finally,

      I went for a jog this morning. I'm pretty sore. I'm thinking of taking a few days off from running to recover.

      Ha.... don't think any of my vacuums will do that. I use a cyclonic separator I made out of a 5-gallon bucket and know how tedious it is if I knock it over and the lid comes off. Usually the lid is pretty tightly sealed but knocking the bucket over will sometimes cause it to come off, and all the debris I sucked up since I last emptied it ends up over the floor again.

      Just pondering whether to press ahead and put insulation panels into the second room. Sooner or later they need to be in place, it's an eternal question of getting work in the right sequence. It's frustrating to still have so many panels nearly six months after buying them but having hit problems between buying them and fitting them I lost a lot of time. I think I'm going to be pulling down ceilings as well, and don't want to take the time to cut panels to size and fit them only to them damage them and have to replace them.

      I'm surprised at how few panels I've gone through so far. I had expected to have to buy another pallet load of them but the rate I'm going the ones I have may go further than I expected. That would be nice - it's about time something turned out easier and cheaper than expected....

      Got back from church and finished eating lunch. It's too muggy outside to be active so I'm going downstairs to do some workouts.
