This probably doesnt count, but you asked, so here goes:

I discovered that Chili peppers(and all pepper plants) are perennials, so after the growing season was done, I planted 6 peppers(3 bell, 2 Poblano, 1 Jalapeno) into pots and brought them into my greenhouse. Next spring I'll bring them back outdoors and they will continue getting bigger, and maybe grow into small trees at some point, as I saw one earlier this year that was 7 feet tall, and 4.5 feet in diameter!

But yesterday, out of the blue, I notice all these thousands of little bugs eating on the leaves! They are aphids, so I took them outside and sprayed them with Spectracide Triazicide, but today, many were still alive. Also, I used to have a pesticide applicators license when I worked 7 years in lawn, tree and ornamental pesticide application. Most of the products we used then are now banned for use on lawns and at homes, but the new insecticides which are supposed to be safer, seem even nastier to me!

So I resprayed with my own home remedy made, ironically, with hot peppers!

I spent the week working during our plant shutdown between Christmas and New Years so I'll have some extra money to work on the V8 Beetle over the next couple of weekends......

I'm 2nd in charge of our Maintenance Dept. at an aluminum foundry and I got a team of our guys together and we spent the week trying to work towards getting caught up.

I did a 1000hr inspection and service on a heat treat line, replaced the electric (& slightly modified) trailer brakes on a 36" band saw, put new guide rods and guide rod bushings on 3 horizontal core machines, and caught up on the always fun paper work....

Today I have some plaster repair to do at work, then I need to get the governor adjusted on my generator, then hopefully I'll have some time to start eye-balling the floor on our V8 Beetle......

I finished up my tail light retrofit on my Rambler. I finished cutting up and fitting reflectors from a pair of Subaru tail lamps and I am VERY happy with the outcome.

"Basics of Basics" on the project to come shortly.

I made an aluminum seal plate and gasket to seal up where my fuel tank line goes thru the floor in the trunk.

I also sat down and mapped out a plan for attaching the new door panel and custom molded arm rests. I decided to cover the aluminum panels with padded vinyl in a 2 tone setting. Now I just need to make the parts and do it. Hopefully next week I'll get started on it.
