Lightbridge Part 4 - Mirror Mirror

Are we done yet?
Is it purple?  Is it blue?  It depends!


That's not a scratch or blemish in the finish,
It's the flash lighting up the back of the dining
room chair.

Last year I was working on painting and cosmetic changes.  I finally got the tube clear coated sometime last fall, I can't remember when it was exactly but I am very happy with the results.

I had the scope out once or twice over the winter, but for the most part the scope sat unused for the duration.  Now that the weather is starting to get better and Table Mountain is just around the corner, it was time to get back into the project.

You don't realize some times how crazy your life has become until there is a significant departure from what had become the norm.

The last two years of my previous employment were 9 and 10 hour days followed by checking of email on my blackberry to an almost crack addict level of OCD. 

I turned in my blackberry on the 24th of May and the following weekend it felt strange, almost wrong, that I didn't wake up roll over and check email to see what had happened overnight.  In my mind I knew there was nothing wrong and infact this was a good thing. But I was conditioned to constantly check.

My Poor Neglected Blog

I am going to have to go through and re-tag a bunch of posts with the "neglected" tag since I seem to take so long between posts that I almost always start out lamenting the fact that I don't post enough....HA.

So its been what like 8 months or so since my last post.....that makes Lily 8 and a half months old now.

She is growing up so frighteningly fast.  It seems like she learns something new every week, its crawling now and she loves being chased.  She has so much energy that when she is crawling and I come up and crawl after her, she "peels out" with her legs working so fast that they just slide on the hardwood floor without making any forward progress.

In addition to Lily, there have been some HUGE changes in my life.
