Hello all:

Paul, W7PFB and I visited Jo Anne, Jim Myers wife at their QTH. Jo Anne needs help with mowing and trimming the yard. For the most part, everything we need is there. We have a Craftsman riding lawn mower with a catchment system, Stihl back pack blower, and a Stihl string trimmer there. Jo Anne told us that when Jim did the mowing, it took about two hours. There is a place on site where we can dump the clippings and trimmings.
 
I would like to prepare a list of who would be able to help with this project. I think if we got four people, we could knock out the project in several hours. I am interested in someone with rider lawn mower experience, as Paul and I have very limited experience running one of these.
 
Please respond by answering this e-mail, and/or call my cell, 206-714-8646. The lawn is getting real long, so sooner is better.
 
Thank you in advance for your offers to help.

Back in a prior life I did landscaping; I can help if timing works. It looks like the weather should be nice Saturday. Should we plan a Saturday morning work party?

Re: Lumen Field Vaccination Site

Rowland
 

Today was a rather slow day with only about 1500 expected.  Saturday will be much busier with 8500 expected and actual maybe  15,000.  This place can handle 22K per day.  It will be busy but as mentioned this is a well oiled machine.  Was amazing to witness it all.
We did the first shift from 9:30 to 2:30.  Was getting busier as we left.

The work is not hard at all.  We were called "Wayfinders". We just helped people get to the right place.

Here is a partial picture taken from the balcony before things had opened. On the far left is where the people get in line for their vaccination. The tables you see in the middle are the vaccination tables and all the chaires you see are for the 15 minute recovery period for those vaccinated. To the right out of the picture are many more recovery chairs.

Kathy and I volunteered at the Lumen Field Vaccination site today.  It was a great experience. I highly recommend it. You work about five hours with a thirty minute break. The place it like a well oiled machine. It is amazing to behold. Everyone was upbeat including all those coming in for a Vaccination. 

They Really need volunteers for this Saturday the 15th for all shifts. 

Or any other day that will work for you.

Go for it! You will enjoy it.

100% on the Elmer session idea. 

A "here's my setup" prep email or FB post to the group page would be awesome to have in advance of an Elmer session.

I've been keen to do this for a while too so a walk-through your setup would be just the kick in the pants I need. 😉

First attempts promising and made a few changes. Now if I could figure out how to set full registered software and settings it might be as good as the laptop.

Hi all,

Been playing around with the weather birds the last couple of days. Seems the old config works on laptop but next step in progress is a Pi box for this. If I can get it to function as well as laptop I will post my suggestions.
