It stayed about 27*F here in West Michigan.

For Christmas,....

I got a Craftsman stool for my workbench in my room. It has a backrest, and an air cylinder for the up, down, and swivel features. Only took like a 1/2 hour to assemble. So far I'm happy with it. It's a little tall, so I might have to shorten the legs a bit. As it is, I can't get my legs under the countertop, and the drawers skim the seat cushion. This is at the lowest setting.

I also got a bag of Hot Cheese Curls, a can of Piroulines, a homemade bracelet, (Don't laugh, it was from my little sister. ) a shirt with my name on it, Witch Hazel and cotton balls in a glass, detailed container, (Mom says she's sick of my zits. Ha! I never have more than 1-2 at one time!) a Sweet Tarts chewy candy, four pads of note paper, (They were colored Red, Green, Black, and Blue.) a thing of chocolate covered Graham Crackers, one of those things that have little solar panels and sway in the sun, (The first design was with a flower and leaves that swayed, I got a blue one with dolphins that jump through a hoop.) and some ginger bread and sugar cookies.

Not bad...

Merry Christmas from California!
I think we hit a record HIGH for Christmas Day - 64F It's like Springtime here! Mornings and Evenings are chilly. Morning frost. But mid days are lovely, perfect RC weather! Gotta love California. I feel bad for you guys back in the middle states, especially up there around Michigan and Illinois BRRRRR!! I wonder about Maine. You know, they say they have only TWO seasons up there: Winter, and MUD. Any RC guys from Maine?

I live at 1300ft elevation in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains. Usually, the snow line is about 4000ft. But back around Thanksgiving in November, we got snowed on two days in a row! Only got a couple inches, but big patches were still laying around a week later, temps were dipping into the 20s overnight and only getting up to the high 40s during the day. Now here, right after Winter Solstice, we've got 60s!

Finally got me a nice, quiet, charger for CHristmas.....the Thunder AC680. God I love that thing! I've been living with a Supermate DC6 charger that does the job, but the FAN on the thing is noisy as hell. Even the wife complained about it. The AC680 has a better display, better buttons, better EVERYTHING. Charges at 6 Amps, and my favorite: Storage Charges at 2 Amps. REALLY cuts down the time of store-charging five 5000mah packs after a day of racing.

Here's hoping the human race gets its ****e together in 2014 and the world becomes a better place. Namaste'

Ahh..not so, grasshoppa! It actually means, I believe I'm correct... is that "The spirit in me acknowleges & salutes the spirit in you, and may you be at peace."
So it could be used as a greeting, or as a general salute of respect.


At least that is what I glean from being around yoga people and taking yoga classes for the last 7 years or so.

Merry Happy New Christmas Year!

PEACE
