The start

Today it was car-time again. I really wanted to fire up my Mustang again to see if it would fire the first time, again. It hadn't run for a week so this would be a good test!

This is the old Pertronix I ignition. I guess I'll try to sell it.

The engine in its current state. I like how you can tell what's been replaced by how shiny it is :-)

Here's a movie clip of starting the car. It fired the first time but then died, think maybe a small lack of fuel or too cold or whatever. It did fire though and it would've kept running if I had given a bit more throttle. Anyway, I fired it a second time and it started running and it kept running. Very happy! :-)

So to me, having a proper starting engine after four years of owning the Mustang is a perfect start of my holidays. Then I went home and had one of the best cookies in the world and Silver came to sit with me and I played a bit of Hearthstone on my tablet. Life was nearly perfect :-)

The drinks

I took the bus to work again for a change because after work I was going into town! :-)

The city district council and ChipSoft have teamed up to display a Christmas wish on our building.

At work there was a bit of an emergency as I was seriously out of coffee... I had to run out and get more.

After work I took the tram down to my old place and from there I walked into town. Lovely little walk along the canals.

Max was behind the bar in Mulligans. The place looks extra cosy around Christmas.

Gerrit was running late so I stared at the wall for a bit ;-)

After 3 pints of Guinness if was most certainly time for some food. We wanted shoarma but the place was closed so we went to waga's instead. The food was niiiiiiiiice!

After dinner we had a few more drinks and then walked back to get the bus home. I had a very enjoyable evening and so did Gerrit by the looks of it ;-)

The dryer

So I was sitting behind my computer this evening and suddenly I smelled these scorchy fumes and I went to investigate...

My first suspect was the laundry dryer. I felt inside where it was warm but I couldn't see so I made pictures. I found out that there was a light with loads of dust stuck around it.

When I peeled away the dust I saw that it got all scorched black where it touched the lamp. The lamp itself had sunken down a bit and it had melted the plastic around it.

Needless to say this dryer is going out the door sasp...

The joys of going home by car. Traffic jams everywhere...

The batting practice

Late afternoon we took Milan and a baseball buddy to the rest of his team where they got batting practice with machines. For 90 minutes.
