One step forward, two steps back...

...or so it seems sometimes!

Last weekend was Hot Lead, a fine little Canadian convention in Stratford, Ontario. Sold a chunk of the lead pile - enough to pay my casting order from RAFM, which I picked up from them while I was there.

That was all good, but on Thursday evening my computer died a horrible death. And then the next morning we left for Stratford, so there was little I could do at the time.

I have since bought a cheap laptop ($325+/-) which turns out to be better than my old PC which cost about $1200 IIRC. Of course, the expenditure was not budgeted for.

And today the muffler on the car gave out. It hasn't fallen off, it just seems to have come detached at the engine. As Kingston seems to be the pot hole capital of Canada this is perhaps not surprising. This will be the third car repair in the last five or six weeks. Previously the coolant system started leaking and before that one of the front tires had it's back broken - if that is the right way to describe it. I blame the pot holes!
