    Got my new concrete mixer assembled today despite abysmal directions.
    I guess I need to get concrete now?

    Only if you want to use the mixer for what it is intended for.

    Last night, due to sauna-like heat in the house and severe thunderstorms that arrived here at 1:30 AM (OK, technically this morning), I didn't get to sleep until around 3 AM then up again at 7:30 AM. I am hoping for slightly earlier than that tonight, even though the forecast has more severe storms supposedly showing up here around midnight.

    The weather guessers declared that the rain will stay north of Abilene, so no more rain for us. However, the humidity remains high. We got to 97° with 34%rh today.

    RH here at the moment is 62% and that is inside the house. That's the lowest it has been all week.

    It is still 85° outside and 74° inside with 44%rh for both. And, we have window AC units going. Otherwise, we would be miserably hot.

    I wonder why it is that your humidity is so low (compared to ours, of course), because whenever we get high humidity, it comes from the Gulf, which means it ran over the top of you to get to us. Obviously it did not come down to ground level until well after it passed you.

    Inspected that catholic elementary school today, damn they have money....the best of everything in that building...and in surprisingly good condition. I was quite shocked, being about 12 yrs old, roofs usually go to hell quickly, but they have been maintaining it well, something I don't see often.....it's usually out of sight <-> out of mind with most people.

    Yup, I have the A/C set at 75, it's not bad in here, just hate to step outside, for ANY reason.

    Was about 100 today, no idea what the humidity was/is....but it's just nauseating.

    Hey gang, does anyone have a clue if Jimi got his computer fixed yet? I thought I saw him surfing through here the other day, but he never posted, so maybe he was on his smart phone.
    Right, as I was in total zombie mode.

    Must have been reading my mind, posted the answer prior to my post.

    Oh, by the way, the scotchcake is delish...I added a lil caramel and a lil Caps V1 in a different bottle last night, they both taste good.

    Phillip is trying to insist I don't do DIY juice, telling me I can't do it unless I buy one of those gadgets vape shops use to dispense ingredients when they mix juice. He also thinks there is a difference between standard milligrams and medical milligrams.
    I think the stress at his job may be causing a disconnect between what you say and what he thinks. I know an oral syringe with markings on it should be accurate enough when I read up on how much of what to mix.

    We obviously have very similar tastes then. Any chances your GF in EC is a redhead? :rolleyes:
    She is a mixtress extraordinaire, so stay in touch via PM. Oh, and I think we now have permission to share a really hot custard recipe from across the pond.

    Indeed....it's what most used, until the scales were used widely, which I prefer, but certainly not necessary.

    Think I paid like 12 bucks for a scale on Amazon....goes to .01...and UP.

    Correctamundo. Get a small syringe for those recipes that might be 1% of some flavor and a larger syringe for your nic/vg/pg. As long as you can do simple math (and I know you can), that is all you need for mixing. For example, if you are trying to fill a 60 mL bottle and your recipe calls for 10% X and 5% Y, then very simply, that is 6 mL of X and 3 mL of Y. Given that almost all flavors use PG as the carrier, subtract that amount out from the total PG you want, such as: 50/50 VG/PG mix (if you so desire) would be flavors plus 30 mL PG minus the flavors (in this case,30-9= 21 mL PG) + 30 mL VG... oh, and the nic, depending on what you buy and from whom, might be VG or PG, so figure that in as well. You do not need any fancy equipment to do this. And if you are off by a mL or so, it really doesn't matter that much because how you make it depends entirely on YOUR taste, not some friggin' chemist somewhere. And if Phil still doesn't like the idea, you do it for you and let him keep paying for his pina colada until one day he wakes up and notices that you are making some good shit and he is the one missing out.

    Just curious because of our similar tastes, but even though her hair is brown, the vast number of changes she made to your house down there tells me she has a redheaded attitude. :D

    He was looking at dispensers online. The cheapest he found is $188.00. I guess that means I won't be making his. But, I see no reason not to make my own. He is a stubborn one, and I'm not going to force him to vape anything I mix.

    I'm gonna have fun this coming spring, if I decide to build a chicken coop. First, it has to be snake resistant, but I can buy the wire mesh I need for that. Standard chicken wire won't be good enough. Then, buying chickens and feed. The price of eggs is not going down any time soon .

    Should have added this: Ages ago I dated a really sweet lady from Columbia whose hair was jet black (natural), so not everyone down there is brown. Got my Latino friend to teach me to say "comu tu estas, Leenda" (that's phonetic, not spelled properly) for when I called her.

    What animals are immune to rattlesnake venom?

    The hedgehog (Erinaceidae), the mongoose (Herpestidae), the honey badger(Mellivora capensis), the secretary bird (Sagittarius serpentarius), and a few other birds that feed on snakes are known to be immune to a dose of snake venom.

    Up here, the two snakes to worry about with regard to chickens are rattlers and bull snakes. The bull snakes are too big to get through 1" chicken wire (they eat the eggs but not the chickens). The rattle snakes can get through that, but my coop sits a foot off the ground and I made a ramp for the chickens and a step for me. The rattlers got into the run, but never into the coop. The chickens instinctively knew to stay away from the snake until I killed it, then they beat the crap out of the remains and ate most of the pieces.

    Well, Dale, it is midnight, and I hope to make up for last night's lack of sleep. If I crash now, I'll get a shade over 7 hours.
    In other words, I am outta here, Amigo.
    More BS tomorrow.
