Well, it was a hell of a game, but congratulations to the Washington Capitals. I was really pulling for Vegas, but the Caps dominated four top-notch teams to win the Stanley Cup. Their forechecking, physical play, and disciplined defense was truly impressive. And Ovi’s passion seemed to lift his entire team to another level. It…
It was the first day of work on my staycation project. Lots of rip cuts and cross cuts today. Tomorrow, it’s detailing and probably a lot of priming. And learning how to use the new router. It’s nice to do something that doesn’t involve sitting at a computer. [gallery link="file" ids="1687,1688,"]
Well, the Lightning made it a series, but congratulations to the Washington Capitals on taking the Eastern Conference title. They put together four convincing wins in this series. When they’re on their game, they can be absolutely dominating. I would like to have seen a game where both teams were at their best, but I…
Welp, I’m not surprised to see this series go to 7, but I sure wish it wasn’t. The Bolts just seemed flat tonight. They gotta get that jump back on Wednesday or it’s all over. ? [gallery link="file" ids=""]
Congrats to Vegas! Helluva win. Really hoping Tampa can close out their series tomorrow and join the Knights in the finals. ? [gallery link="file" ids=""]
I really like watching this Vegas team. They work hard, they take care of the puck, and they look like they’re having fun. It’s going to be a shame to see them lose to the Lightning in the finals.? [gallery link="file" ids=""]
Great day to be at Safeco Field watching the Mariners with my team. And great seats! I literally almost got hit in the face with a foul ball. Kid behind me snagged it at the last second. Whew!
Will Alsop, 70: British architect’s ‘flying tabletop’ changed Toronto | The Star. Though often dismissed as lacking seriousness, especially by other architects, [Alsop] took the view that all aspects of life should be informed by the pleasure principle. If people aren’t engaged by a building, they tend to ignore or avoid it when possible. What…
Much better opening period for the Lightning. They had jump, they were winning puck battles, and they were shooting the puck. They’re not dominating the Caps by any means, but they’ve definitely established their game. And they got a couple of lucky breaks, which never hurts. ? [gallery link="file" ids=""]
This was one of my projects for the weekend, along with putting in my application for the local tool library, researching Kreg jigs and joinery techniques, and poring through Charles Rennie Mackintosh books. Not pretty, but super helpful in thinking through this project.
