I think you misspelled minimally. Really. I'm a dabbler. I just don't have that long term obsessive trait that really talented people have. I get to a point, and look a squrll!

I can relate to this. For virtually everything in life.

I happen to have a simple old tune that I rewrote the lyrics to, just for the occasion.

Gov'nor's Blues

There's trouble in the State tonight
I can feel it in my bones
I had a premonition
That I would not be alone
I knew there'd be contagion
But i didn't plan ahead
Ev'rything exploded and
Disease began to spread
So citizen there's a shutdown
Put some gloves upon your hands
Here's a homemade facemask now
Wear it just like that was the plan
You be cool for thirty days
And I'll review my stand
I'm sorry it went down like this
Someone had to lose
It's the nature of the bus'ness
It's the Gov'nor's blues
Gov'nor's blues

The doctors and the nurses
The essentials and the law
The young'uns and the old ones
And the ones nobody saw
No matter if they're in the pink, sickly or on drugs
You've got to wear your PPE
Cause they always carry bugs
There's lots of opportunists
Lots of dirty deals
Ev'ryone's got an alibi
In case somebody squeals
It's the lure of easy money
It's gotta very strong appeal
Perhaps you'd understand it better
Standin' in my shoes
It's the ultimate in power trips
It's the Gov'nor's blues
Gov'nor's blues

See it in the headlines
You hear it ev'ry day
They say they're gonna stop it
But it doesn't go away
Vaccine trials in Seattle
Drug trials at VA
There's some hope from Chicago, but
I mean it's here to stay
It's racking up the body count
In nursing homes and ICUs
You ask any WHO man
He'll say there's not enough we can do
From the office of the President
Right down to me and you
Me and you
It's a losing proposition
But one you can't refuse
It's the politics of pandemics
It's the Gov'nor's blues
Gov'nor's blues

So is there going to be another meeting of the minds any time soon? I'd be keen to chat if the time zones work.

monster 04-21-2020 09:36 PM

It's set for every Sunday at 4pm my time -which is Eastern Time and we're on daylight Saving time .... so that's 8pm GMT, 9pm British Summer Time and erm...... Really early in the morning for you? 6-7am ish Monday? I don't know exactly which time zone you're in there

monster 04-21-2020 09:39 PM

Dudes you missed Part 1 of the Limey backstory. Pete was listening in and described it as "wonderful". She is gender equality.

sexobon 04-27-2020 09:50 AM

Bummer, now Clodfobble won't be able to write the story so fargon can have keryx read it to him at bedtime...

...and today is National Tell a Story Day (April 27th)Ö

Ö Oh, the humanity!

lumberjim 04-27-2020 05:13 PM

The weather Sunday was really crap. Cold, windy, and rained non stop all day. So no sitting out on the deck during the call.... We were watching a movie and being lazy,. Took a nap...
I would have had to go out to the garage or another room, and just couldn't be arsed. Get the cliff notes ready and I'll be there for episode 2.

Tony, if you don't show up for one of these, you're de-cool.

I may miss this week. Picking Spencer up in the afternoon, not sure what time. I'll try to check in at least.

I didn't clean up my shop, but if you want to talk about / show and tell tools limey, we can do a call any time today.

limey 05-10-2020 08:47 AM

I've got loads of works to do. Thanks for the offer, maybe another time?

Good morning!

I look forkward to our meeting.

monster 05-10-2020 11:00 AM

I'm planning to be there, but my boys are allegedly cooperating on being nice to me on Mothers' Day so I'm not entirely sure how my day will pan out (both still in bed). We did want to do garden work and grill, but snow is forecast... going out to mow right now :D

BigV 05-10-2020 11:52 AM

Lawnmowing is at the top of my list today too, but I'm starting early to avoid the 80 degree heat, not frostbite.

I finished the mask (It's for Bajaboi who starts a summer internship tomorrow -remotely for 2 more weeks, but has to go in to sign the docs and pick up his computer)

BigV 05-18-2020 12:40 AM

Nice work! Do you have a link to the pattern you used?

monster 05-18-2020 01:14 AM

erm...

I used the pattern from a site called craftpassion (because the shape looked good) but ignored any instructions they might have given. I adapted it to add a pocket for a removable nose wire (pipe cleaner) at the top so it can be shaped to the face. (I extended the material at the top of the outside piece so it could be folded over).

I did a prototype before this one to work out how to make the pockets for the elastic and wire. I used a loop of round cord elastic going through both pockets to form two straps round the back or over the top of the head as desired, like decent swim goggles, rather than one small loop through each pocket to go round the ears.

Didn't change from the prototype for this one, but next one I will add more height, because beest gifted bajaboi a majestic snoz that could do with a little more coverage and this top is straining a little as it is.

monster 05-18-2020 01:15 AM

so "not really" is the short answer ;)

Clodfobble 05-18-2020 06:51 AM

Nice work!

glatt 05-18-2020 07:34 AM

That's a really fine looking mask.

I've got several n95 masks kicking around. But am saving them for trips inside stores, and if they make us go back to work, I'm going to want an n95 for when I ride the subway.

But for walking around the neighborhood, which we do a lot, I like the idea of cloth masks. My wife made some masks out of t-shirt material. Two layers, and I found that I can slip a number 4 coffee filter between the layers. We got a new coffee maker last year and have something like 200 of the old number 4 filters from the old coffee maker left over. And I got a stiff wire from my shop to slide in along the top of the mask so I get a really tight fit at my nose.

It's not made nearly as well as your mask, Monster, and takes 30 seconds of so to get the layers lined up correctly and the coffee filter situated in place properly. But it feels like it fits well. When I breath in, the whole filter collapses against my face as I suck air in, so I know very little is leaking in through the sides. and my sunglasses don't fog up at all, so very little is leaking out the edges and around my nose when I breath out.

I found a good website [maybe this one?] that lists the effectiveness of various household materials at filtering. It was interesting.

With some artistically arranged googly eyes on it... you'd have a fine Coat of Arms!
