Eileen and I managed to get one jack working properly yesterday. I admit that I was getting discouraged and skeptical about this project. Last time we worked on it, we had problems getting this jack to work. This time we reviewed the instructions, filed a bit off the bottom of the jack and worked on voicing the plectrum. Now it seems more doable.
A big part of yesterday was getting everything ready to work on the jacks again. As you can see above, a couple days ago we moved the table back into the room. Then it was a matter of getting all the tools out. I also had to work on lighting which is very important for this step.
This morning I skipped reading Finnegans Wake and went directly to work on my Greek. I was inspired because I received two real copies of the texts I have been working with as Kindle books. I plan to read Finnegans Wake later today, but it was certainly a luxury to have these texts as real books this morning. I’m hoping this might speed up my progress and I will be reading Homeric texts in Greek before too long.
There are 118 sections in the book. I have read 21 of them. After 22 more I will be reading Aristophanes. Homer comes later near the end of this text, but I’m hoping not too much later timewise.
I love reading about disaster in my old home town on the front page of the New York Times. Sheesh.
A patient with Alzheimers murders another patient. Who is responsible? Certainly not the Nursing Home which has insisted that residents sign a contract agreeing to go to private arbitration and not court even in the case of murder.
It looks like Climate Change is happening. Sorry, hate radio and brain dead dittoheads.
