Father's Day carnivore.

Ended up doing something similar, oldest daughter called around lunch and said don't do anything for dinner, I will bring something home.

 

What she brought was potatoes to be baked and a whole ribeye, and we had made a big salad already. So we cut it up and grilled it, one day I would love to cook one whole but everyone here likes it cooked anywhere from medium well to rare.

Looks great.  Ever try soaking the corn in water and putting it on the grill still in the husk?  It pretty much comes out perfect every time.

Yes, I have done that before. I was trying something different. Cooked ears in a pan of water first, then on the grill just long enough to add some smoke and char.

Morning gang

 

Rest, rest and more rest.

Currently the west coast is orbiting 6" from the sun, no relief anytime soon.

 

News items consists of buckling road surfaces, trailer park campers are complaining they live in a microwave oven and want federal assistance.

 

Keep your critters cool, more news later when we rotate out of this orbit.

I didn't do one productive thing on Sunday and it almost killed me.  I have to stay busy all the time for some reason. Relaxing is a chore.  Saturday however I got my starter rows down on the bedroom floor.

It's tongue and groove bamboo.  I think the hardness rating on it is about 5 times better than oak.

7Am and 80 already

Cave is holding at 77 to 80 throughout the day with no AC.

Not bad for simply applying that white roof elastomer coating.

Bamboo is a great choice.

Coffee.......................................................

 

My wife and I walked around the house all day yesterday with mild headaches.  We really couldn't put our finger on the cause as neither of us had an inordinate amount to drink on Saturday.  Come to find out she had accidentally bought decaf beans and yesterday morning was the first time we had them.  LOL, we got it bad.

Doctor scared me away from caffeine. Regular doctor and Cardiologist both told me that caffeine can trigger those heart rhythm issues i was having. (Thank God i haven’t had an episode in a few months--they were really getting old).  i don’t mind decaf coffee; but, then i don’t drink it everyday either. I’ll drink coffee when it’s cold outside. Today, got out of bed and grabbed an ice-cold 7-Up.

That's great news.  If the DR ever told me to quit drinking coffee, I'd do it.  It's pretty much an enjoyable habit at this point but I could live without it if it affected my heart.

Glue down.  I had to clean all the drywall mud and paint that was on the slab from when the house was built.  Carpet had been hiding the mess, that took a while.  Next step was to put down a 2 part sealer as a moisture barrier.  The glue goes on top of that.  The glue is a Titebond  that the floor manufacturer recommends.  It has the consistency of thin peanut butter but is stringy like melted cheese.  It's a mess to deal with but 24 hours after you put it down, the floor is completely bonded to the concrete.

Afternoon gang

 

Current reading from outside is 115

 

Just pulled the trigger in an AC system for the ManCave, less than a Grand and will have it by next week.

Would have done the "Ductless" for twice the cost however Pro AC service was required for charging, scrw that.

ManCave has not had a Perk since the snowroof, in combo with that i should be "Stylin"  Cave is 80 currently @45 Humid.

Glue down

Way back when this floor covering was just out, maybe 20+ years ago, i helped a guy do his kitchen.

This was over a foam sheeting, maybe an 1/8" thick, floating  i believe they called it at the time.

Never found out how it held up as he sold the house soon after.

 

I told him iv always glued it, he seemed ok with his method, i still wonder how it worked out......

Floating over a pad is the most common application for laminate.  Just about anyone can install it.  I don't care for the sound you make as you walk across it as it sounds very hollow.
