And then we called 911

I think I told you about The Engineer's flame thrower - a weed eater type propane torch.
He always has the hose out in case of an enthusiastic application. Yesterday the hose nozzle was blocked so The Engineer yelled, call 911! Some neighbors borrowed a hose and directed it over
the fence but it took some firefighters to get it out. Will have to be rebuilt.

The Mad Scientists win a Nobel Prize

The award went to three physicists, Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish and Kip Thorne, key to the development of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory at Hanford (here in SE WA)  and its twin in Louisiana, after the LIGO observatories detected signals about one-thousandth the size of a proton.
The signals were made by gravitational waves that were created in the last fifth of a second as two black holes spiraling together collided. The gravitational waves had traveled for 1.3 billion years to reach the Earth in September 2015.
The LIGO facility here out by The Engineer's nuclear plant.

Puddles Pity Party

This fellow is amazing and talented and funny and stunning and magic and just beyond words.
The Engineer heard about him at work and I looked him up. Lots and lots of UTube videos and a website - http://www.puddlespityparty.com/
Give him a listen.
