I had one of those Bell helmets in 1979 but in all white, when I rode my 1971 Honda CB100 motorcycle back and forth to the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Got another one in metallic red in 2004 (came with the bike) when I bought my 1987 LS650 Suzuki Savage (low mileage and looked new at the time).

Now I use full face modular helmets. They say something like 35% or so accidents involve the chin, why I wear.

Watch out for those nasty little critters. Lyme disease. My daughter contracted it years ago and is still paying the price. They are all over here. I wear coveralls tucked into my boots. But it's chiggers that eat me up. Sad

Next time in town ask the feed store for 1 lb of sulfur.....1995 I asked for and got a 25 lb paper sack....still using out of that sack....was cheap tho

fill a old sock with a cup full

dust your shoes, ankles, belt line, and wrists  lightly.....a little goes a long way

fleas, ticks, n chiggers will be radically reduced

When I am dusting the micro ranch with Sevin and Diatomaceous Earth, I add some Sulfur to the mix for a triple dusting whammy to the creepy crawlies
giant centipedes, scorpions, crickets, ants, june bugs   etc...

I spent the last two days working on my roof and screen enclosure. Since it is so hot down here in SW Florida I sweat a lot. The more I sweat the more my pants drooped. Also, since I was working mostly bent over the back of my shirt rose up. I am now the proud owner of a sun burned butt crack! I can't wait to get back to work and take it easy. Sorry, no pictures.

Spending quite a bit of time out in the shop, but also taking breaks to run the drone around the neighborhood to check on things.  I discovered it'll haul a Sessions Go Pro on it's back with only a little reduced flight time, so it's got a secondary video view giving a little different perspective.

Also, been drinking coffee and shooting wasps with my 1968 Crossman B-B  gun!

My wife and I have been tidying up our small front yard with the leanders that wintered in the garage and planting this lil beautiful red robin tree in the middle of a grass patch. Replaced the reed wall on the fence to our next door neighbor that prevents the water sprinkled in our garden from wetting the neighbor's property.

So, how are you spending your Covid-19 stay at home social distancing days?   - Page 3 Img-0e10


Then sneaked out to the field and flew my Roaring 20 with a well used TD020 in its nose..that lil basterd has tons of hours on its clock but still features as new compression.. after so many hours and despite only slight touches with an electric starter I already had to drop a shim washer behind the prop drive plate to bridge the widening gap there...swings the 3 bladed COX prop well over 25k when unloads in the air..a typical COX engine at its best. Found out that the plastic cap of a hypodermic needle fits well on the NV knob so I can tweet the setting without manicuring my fingers with the prop. Of course the cap is pulled off before hand launching the plane.

So, how are you spending your Covid-19 stay at home social distancing days?   - Page 3 20200411


Next thing I flew was the Quickie100..not wanting to repeat myself, suffice to say that bird is a ball to fly.

The field is now frequented by more people walking their dogs than in pre Covid19 times but we keep not just social but almost global distance with each other never coming nearer than few hundred meters thanks to the wide spans of that beautiful meadow.

I suppose I should be putting together one of my ARF's, or building one of my box of wood kits, or repairing my busted Weekender EXTRA-300 foam electric job I crunched a bit a few weeks ago. RC Plane It's fixable but I'm lazy.

Mostly I've been watching movies and playing on the computer. Sometimes I'll mess with my vintage stereo gear, rearrange my systems or record a tape or something. Occasionally I go hiking on some of the nice hillside trails we have here but my favorites are around the Superstition Mountain area so maybe a 60 minute drive to get there when I take the surface streets. I don't like the freeways, too many cars going too fast.

Last Monday I was heading back down from one of the high points on the same trail I had used to go up. At some point I realized there was a faint buzzing sound that was getting louder as I walked along. At first I thought maybe someone was flying one of those quad copters, then I realized I knew that sound, bees. I don't mind saying I got a bit worried I took a look around and saw a bunch of little dots swarming around a Polo Verde a little ways left and up the hillside from the trail I was on.

I decided to turn around and head back away from the swarm. I found another trail that went down the east side of the hill and around the base to get back to my car. It was a fun day. I even braved driving through a McDonald's for a coffee.

That's easily the most exciting thing day I have had since this virus thing started.

Love your picture Andras so nicely landscaped.  You must be at a lower latitude and elevation than I am here in West Virginia where not much grows until mid May.   Your Red Robin tree caught my attention. I have been nursing this little Red Maple through the past 10 Springs when frost tends to burn the newly formed upper leaves and stunt it's growth.  I think I lost the battle this morning with it's heavy frost.  

I can no longer throw a blanket over it's top so I resort to a heat lamp and trouble light.  Plastic bag covered the heat lamp which kept the rain off until it blew away.

BTW, the birds have finally found my bird feeder and clean it out daily. Mostly gold and purple finches, sparrows, Red Wing Blackbirds and Cow birds.

I been rebuilding my trailer. I decked this with "green" board 2X a few years ago and this is the result. PSA the new green board treatment rots steel like butter, 3/8 galvanized bolts were destroyed in a year. Everywhere the wood touched steel it rusted bad and the wood rotted away bad. I think there is some kind of electrolysis going on.  I had a welder replace the crossmembers with 3" angle and deck is 2X Southern Yellow Pine treated with Thompsons. Now for the rails. Like Fit90 said its been 90s+ here, I can only work mornings and evenings, heat is unbearable. But no sunburned crack here. LoL
Much like ethanol gas, gas cans, paint and many other thing the EPA is involved in the "green" board is government mandated crap that just makes more work for me.

Thanks Bob the outskirts of Budapest where I live is sitting about 400 feet above sea level at 47 degree latitude - same as Washington DC - and weather here has been quite good recently. Just read  that the red robin is safe down to minus 12 Celsius i.e. about 10 F and loves sunshine. I love trees and bush with colorful foliage and would plant much more but those plant do not really survive here..I also bought and brought home small sequoia mammoth seedlings from Muir Woods national park  visitor center near Sausalito north of San Francisco, then the same from Yosemite park..also cones of a huge  blue cypress standing on the banks of Rappahanok river, that I picked up from the ground at Mount Vernon in the yard of George Washington's house, but guess what..none survived despite the similar climate here.

A few days earlier we had heavy rain accompanied by sustained winds of 35mph with gusts approaching 60 mph. There were trees down all over.. and wide-spread power-outages, adding to the already surreal overall feeling.

As of right now; it's 56F. and sunny. The melting snow on the roof sounds like a bubbling brook in the downspouts. Smile

With all that rust it looks like it spent its winters in WI with the road salt.

New deck looks great.

The new treated lumber is junk. Have to use stainless hardware with it and it doesn’t last.  

It’s 50 here with a nice SE breeze of the Lake Michigan ice berg. Wisconsin T shirt weather.

I’m waiting for a refill of oat seed.

Ya man!! Love all that land and the birds are loving it too!! Do you have a range setup? My porch said 95 right now, hard to go outside.
I think the Southern Yellow Pine will last longer than the pressure treated crap, Even Thompsons has been reformulated, its looks like milk and does not penetrate like the old clear stuff.
I would like to grab a pencil neck EPA dude by his tie and pull till his eyes bug out!!
