    Yup. office said that they have cut prices and rates so much that we will spend more on fuel than what we will make. And then when this is all over they will hike up the prices as there will now be a shortage of product due to them not being able to get supplies. But God forbid that the Government does NOT bail out the auto industry. If any of you work for them, no offense intended.

    If I run out of more serious things to do I might have to CAD model a COVID-19 virus and 3D-print it.

    I wonder if it would be bad form to print a little one, and just put it in orders with the packing material.

    On a related note, my wife recently informed me that not everyone appreciates gallows humor.

    I'm going to watch all the Marvel movies I haven't seen yet so I can figure out who the new characters are in Avengers: Infinity War. I haven't seen the Ant-Man, Ant-man & the Wasp, and the two latest Spiderman movies. :D

    To be fair, she’s not wrong...my sense of humor isn’t dark, it can be down right black hole dark at times.

    That's -exactly- the same process I share with my five year old. He built the Saturn V right after Christmas and the Lunar Lander on Saturday. I set up piles for each step, he reads the instructions and assembles them. When a step calls for multiples, he actually asks me to get involved and help with that. Otherwise he does the complete assembly. It's a fun time for both of us.

    I am not yet nearly that skilled at Zoom, but we are adapting and adding things each week with the help of our staff and a few volunteers.

    Oh son is home schooling this year due to my Wife's Cancer Treatment and her White Count going to ZERO.
    I never go anywhere unless it's to the Doctor.
    I have not noticed a difference in life what so ever.
    I guess that makes me lucky?
    Or have an unfavorable life....

    I finally got rolling on a kit I picked up from BayouRat a couple of years ago at Airfest. It's a Frenzy XL. Like I need another split fin rocket in my fleet....

    I helped set up the Zoom hardware & software at the Tribal College I retired from last July. It is a pretty slick system.
