This beast is awesome. Chews up the track and lays down a new one while riding the track.

Picked the first couple of dewberries today. Going to be a short picking season this year, dewberries, blackberries, and mulberries are all heavily overlapping.

I passed a turtle on the freeway and unfortunately there was no spot to pull over to safely get to him. Since the freeway has a concrete barrier there I'm pretty sure he didn't make it.

Just off the freeway though, I came upon this little guy on the road and thankfully him I could stop and save.

He's cute in an ugly kind of way.

+Alex Wild​ says the internet does not need more pictures of bees on flowers. Fine, Alex. Here, have a friendly bee examining my root beer bottle, after two or three explorations of my mustache and lips.

At least you got bees. I've had four (yes, four!!!!) yellow jackets in my room in the past week! They've all either been on my bedside table (three) or behind the curtains at the windows at the head of my bed and we have no idea where they are coming from or how they are coming in! Then yesterday I found a dead one in the living room near the front door where my Phrankie walks around without shoes! I had to warn him to keep a watch out as they can still sing after death!

I thought the first one was a bee and was dying and Phrankie told me that to tell if it was dying or just exhausted, feed it some sugar water. If it was just exhausted, it would become active again. Well, it definitely became active and started moving is abdomen up and down a lot as if it was going to sting something, so I hurried back inside.

It was with the third one that my Lalu was in here with me to catch it that she said it was a yellow jacket. To be honest, I'm not sure I was wearing my glasses for any of them, so I googled a comparison and still thought we were dealing with bees, just not honey bees. That is, until I had a very active one behind my curtains and finally was able to catch a picture of it.

Nope, I was definitely dealing with yellow jackets! That one got sprayed very well with poison as it was so active, I heard the buzzing over my TV! What was extremely odd, though, was that I'd checked all my windows behind both curtains not even thirty minutes before and nothing was there!

Locally high water a few days ago produced this odd scene.

Printrbot With All-Metal Ubis Hotend

Back in action, new Slic3r that finally supports this pc's install of Perl, new laser-cut extruder, motor from a bulk buy a while back, some really wobbly gears (the other extruder is still extant, for swapping, so no snagging those gears), and the new all-metal Ubis hotend from Printrbot.

+Brook Drumm​ I had to holler for my brother when I fired it up, so he could watch how fast this thing heats up. Never gone from set temperature to printing that quickly before, very impressive.

You should be talking to +Brook Drumm​, he is the guy behind +Printrbot​. My printer is the reprap style version of the Simple Makers kit, which is $349 at printrbot.com. The Simple Metal is $539 in kit form.

I personally am not a supplier, of kits or bots, just a user.
