OK, you have to get an award for a top ten messy shop… (-:

Every once in a while, I get behind the curve with shop mess, and it was an issue last year. That’s when I was refinishing furniture, and building a dining room table for my handicapped step daughter’s new condo. I got so dang tired of painting and building that I have taken a 5 month vacation from the shop.

All is well here. Doing some hobby stuff on the computer mostly, right now. Looking forward to seeing the rack put together, and with gear in it…

I am not far behind with regards to a messy shop and incomplete projects!

But I have a number of rational excuses ….....

Oh my excuses are rational. That still isn’t getting the shop clean! I hate the shape my shop is in…. I have been cleaning, a LOT in there lately, but there is still a long way to go…

Aliens and UFOs are definitely “in” again, these days, so now was the time to ‘fess up… (-:

Sorry, we were discussing the NASA discovery of organic matter on Mars yesterday….. This crazy haired guy comes up in conversation every time any discussion of potential alien life comes up…

FWIW, I HAVE been making progress getting the junk cleared, organized, and put where it belongs. For the most part. I managed to drop my HF cordless drill on the way back in the house last night and opted to leave it for now…. I was mad enough at it I was likely to smash it on the floor yesterday. Low powered junker that it is, but it is useful most of the time, just when things get stubborn is when I have an issue with it…

Nothing spectacular about the Mars findings. But a negative finding would have been more indicative that there never was life on Mars. At least, that’s the way I see it. Of course, the samplings by Curiosity, although guided, still are so sparse as to have a huge possibility of missing life if it was ever there.

This just seems like an indication that it is worth pursuing the search. Organic compounds are all over the solar system, as I understand it. And they found similar compounds in meteorites thought to have originated from Mars.

I don’t follow this closely, but do read the Planetary Society Newletter regularly, since I have been a member since 1987. Still waiting for something definitive, but it will take a more sophisticated laboratory on Mars, or bringing samples home to Earth.

Also, got to watch for the politics involved, anything to keep the money flowing to NASA… (-:

FWIW, I’m good with that, although I wouldn’t call the money going to NASA exactly flowing considering the job they are expected to do…

Sorry for the political reference, but it was pertinent, and humor was indicated. Think I will stay out of political discussions, if you don’t mind.
