    I've read thousands of books but one of them was about this dude that crossed the Atlantic in a 10ft homemade boat. Are you kidding? no.

    The book's title is "Alone Against the Atlantic".

    Some distractions are because my wife has cancer, which her Oncologist is nearing remission. I took her to the last of round five Velcade injections this afternoon.
    I also have a Huffy Davidson that needs better wheels and a engine mount to replace the BBR generic POS.

    Pulled 10 foot of #35 Diamond brand chain out of the crock pot full of chain wax. Hot 35 chain is a dickens to get ahold of. Wax on low was 286F by my laser temp meter.
