but with the sun down it doesn't feel bad at all, it's been too hot for too long.
Couple of days ago Tam had a piece on using the BRSUV for more exercise, and some discussion in the comments caused me to get off my ass and try something. My bicycle is a trail-type, which means the bars are almost straight, and they were killing my hands after a while. Suggestion was made to try higher bars; honestly, the idea had occurred a while back, but it got pushed back into a corner and forgotten. After a little 'net browsing(do you have any idea what some bars go for? Geez!), I swung by the "That bike is HOW MUCH?" shop nearby and asked, and it turned out they had some bars for cheap. Picked out one and put it on this afternoon; also had to replace two cables due to the height change. Just finished trying them out; HUGE difference. It'll make it much easier to use it for library runs and such. Now I need a lock of some kind for the store.
Week ago I had to get a new TV*, and the day after set it up ran across this on making a antenna. I dug up some 16-gauge galvanized wire and some 1x3, and had to get some suitable screws. I used the 16-gauge for the connector wires between 'V's, with a bit of insulation between where they cross. For the line to the tv I had on the transformer that plugs to the antenna connector on the VCR, and found some speaker wire: connected the ends of the speaker wire to the connector wires at the center, then to the transformer and plugged it in. It's working great. I may find something to use for reflectors and see if they add anything other than complexity.
