The Lady of the House is enjoying the first strong rays of sunshine so much today…
So we heard some tippity-tappity, some scratching and a low clopping from the attic again. The lady of the house was super-interested as well and so we decided to set up a trap and a camera again to see if we could pinpoint somebody. Seems we have a tiny little subtenant in the house again 🙂
Learning new things is a lifetime undertaking. So what have I, personally, learned in the last days?
Well, a “patella“, commonly known as kneecap, is an elaborate, delicate and enormously important component of the human body. Not only does it produce funny movements when it’s tendon is hit with a reflex hammer, it also enables you to perform some fundamental tasks, like flexing and straightening your knee (see a good demonstration here). Cool little gadget, right?
However – and I cannot stress this enough – it is NOT intended to make acquaintance with a driveway pavement at fall velocity and with the kinetic energy of around 100 kg of body weight as additional thrust. In this case, although scrupulously designed and crafted only from premium-quality materials, it will most likely just shatter.
Not funny, not pleasing, surgically challenging and certainly not a a short timer. What have you learned these days 🙂 ?
I met a “distant relative” today on the supermarket parking lot near the northern germany refuge 🙂 🙂 🙂 (The number plates indicate two absolutely opposite regions of germany). Of course, mine is the one with the cool sticker…
Just an evening dusk view of mine and my neighbours driveway with our two newly installed vis-a-vis pillar lights. I like the quiet and homely evening atmosphere.
I had to solder some zinc pipe these days for the garage gutter. I wonder what substances are contained in the tin-lead solder that the soldering iron gives off such a beautiful vibrant green flame. Does anybody know?
