Well, shit. Two shootings this weekend, Texas and Ohio. Somehow rational people need to make the case to the gun-rights-zealots who think they should be able to own high-power semi-or-automatic high-capacity military-style rifles that their way (of keeping all of these available so "the good guys can take out the bad guys") isn't working. In fact in El Paso, the police were having trouble telling who the bad guy was because anyone with a gun is suspect into it's all sorted out.

Susan, you're nearby the Ohio one. Do what you can for those you can help. Stay safe yourself.

On the home front, I've looked at the bookshelves and I can see a distinct slant in the office - that front of the house has tipped enough that the bubble in the I-beam level is all the way to the top of the horizontal vial. I actually shimmed one case on the end closest to the window. No wonder the ceiling fell. This is something that will only get worse until I manage to have the foundation work done.

Today is when more stuff moves into the office and on the shelves. I've put power strips and three-pronged extension cords in place behind the big book cases (used only for small things like lamps, not for heavy duty applications). They're ready to be reassembled and put into use.
