Default Re: winter blues

I worked on my motor bike outside today but got cleaning up earlier instead of staying out till early AM hrs as I have in the past. Northern California Bay Area has freeze warnings. I do OK, but I offer help for my orange tree with a cover and a 100 watt bulb. I also took bowls of warm water and placed them at the base of the tree. The half wine barrel planter after 3 to 4 years has the dwarf tree grown enough I don't have enough cover to shield all the oranges. I understand the tree if really healthy as it is, is hardened to the weather.

I cut the bottom of the head tube on my frame to adapt to a junker fork that was better as it has shocks that work. I needed more threads, 9 mil more. I got the Dremel, die grinder, and then hack saw on the scribed dye mark on the metal. It came out real nice with full 5 turns of the crown locking nut over the washer and end play nut.
