Well, just about done with the GB wing sheeting. But .... hitting a bit of a slow-down. I have been having some reactions to CA, but by working slowly in bits and pieces, it was managable, but I fear no more. After puttering around for a couple of days, I feel like crap. Either I'm getting a spring cold, or more likely I have turned the corner on allergic reactions to CA, so it's back to Ambroid and Titebond. That might slow me down a bit, which I didn't think was possible.

Now thats the kind of post that I've grown to love from my snowy friend.
Well we made it thru the storms but I'm still grounded.So it's a no fly day.
Guy's I had a bad RX in the Green Machine and didn't even know it till I put a remote kill switch. I used channel 5 on a hitec RX for my remote kill. It would only come on for a second when I move any stick and then go out. I tried a servo on it and it was fine.
Figuring it had to be the switch I called Valley View RC and they sent me a new one.
It did the same thing even though they had tested this one. So I changed RX's and now it works perfect Go figure.

Stay away from the beer David! Just have up to 10 ounces of red wine instead, if you really want a drink.
Those are good proteins, lean meats and fish are the way to go!
Just because you're married now doesn't mean you can let yourself go. I decided I'd better get with it since my wife stayed gorgeous and I didn't!!! Gotta keep those home fires burning, even after many, many years of marriage!! Plus I feel much better, and I'm less grumpy. Good luck with losing the extra pounds, you can do it!

OK here's the plan.......get chur butt over to LA and pick up my planes......swing back through the ole homestead and get a couple of rebuilders.....swing by my place and drop off. I might even get one done on your way back north. I know I could do one of the Twist's But for sure pick em up on your way through the next time

This worries me bro and I know it exists. I have never had said reactions but I also try not to take any chances. I have one of those radiator type heaters from walmart in my shop but in the summer I hang a fan on the front of it and stack one on top (box fan) so its double stacked fans to blow on me when working. I almost never get a whiff of CA.

Everyone be careful of this. (The medic in me talkin ) Think about it. CA sets up. To set it up faster you wet it, sooooooo if it gets in your lungs its GONNA SET UP ON YOUR LUNGS......bad juju. Two part paints (epoxies, part "B" hardeners) are very dangerous too.

Ok....abject safety lesson of the day is over.....back to planes
