Frederick is a party monster, and always likes to be the life of the party. He uses his super-sensitive tongue as a radar detector for parties and quickly finds a way to get there! He would love to come home with you and help you find your way to the best parties in town.

Fred is about 2.5 inches wide and 4 inches long. He’s made of recycled fur-material, felt, and terrycloth. His eyes are buttons. He features a heart on his bum and a gaping mouth with his tongue hanging out.

Fred was 100% hand sewn, and is therefore not recommended for children under 4. (Plus, why would they want to party anyways?) He was made without a pattern, and is therefore a unique work of art.

Me and Phil outside H&I tube, 30 June 2006

Me and Phil outside H&I tube, 30 June 2006

Thanks to Mark Blunden of the Camden New Journal Group for sending this photo over, along with the text of his article:

————————————————————

POLICE have defended their decision to fine a physicist £80 for swearing during a massive drugs crackdown. Phil Bennett, 24, was handed a fixed penalty notice at Highbury and Islington tube station for suggesting a police metal detector was ‘shit¹. Nine arrests were made for substantial quantities of cocaine, ecstasy and super-strength ‘skunk¹ cannabis.

Sniffer dogs and around 25 Islington officers, special constables and British Transport Police swamped the station. They appeared in no mood for messing around when Mr Bennett was pulled up for his foul language.

He had come down from Preston to watch goth rock band My Ruin at the Garage in Holloway Road. Mr Bennett and his friend Jo Tacon walked through the scanner ­ set up by police to detect knives ­ and he commented it was ‘shit¹.

He was collared by two officers, who reprimanded him for his language because children were within earshot.

They fined him under Section 5 of the Public Order Act, maintaining he in fact swore a number of times was warned twice to desist.

Mr Bennett said afterwards: "They were pretty aggressive and didn¹t tell me what I¹d done. All I mentioned was the detector they were using isn¹t very effective. It was a PR exercise and was incredibly petty to fine me."

But PC Damian Southall, the officer in charge of the operation, disagreed. He said: "Some people, I guess, just don¹t know when to leave it when they are given a warning by a constable to stop or be arrested. He was swearing in front of children and people have the right to go about their business without listening to abuse."

Commuters and weekend revellers were ask to walk through the arch under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act, although officers have no powers to force them to walk through.

No knives were found but a number of people arrested with Class A drug arrests were charged with dealing. Police also issue 22 formal warnings for cannabis possession and recovered thousands of pounds in cash.

Richard Johnson, 22, a multi-media student from Hackney, was caught with around one eighth of an ounce of cannabis he says was for his own personal use.

He said: "I was just going home to have a smoke and relax. I know they¹ve got a job to do but I think the police should be concentrating on violent crime and just teach the dogs to sniff out dangerous drugs like heroin and PCP."

PC Southall said: "That¹s why he was given a formal warning and not arrested and taken to court. People have to get into their heads that (having cannabis) is legal because it has been reclassified as Class C ­ it¹s not."

A carrier bag full of skunk was also recovered, with officers warning there are stiff penalties for dealing cannabis. In the past eight operations run by PC Southall and his team have netted 260 arrests.

—————————————————————————————————————

What a JOKE. At NO POINT were Phil or I warned about "foul, abusive" language – they’re just making that up because swearing once isn’t an offence, swearing twice is. NO-ONE warned us. And maybe the metal detector didn’t find any knives because it was, in fact, an UTTER PIECE OF SHIT. And as for the ‘oh but think of the children’ comment … well. To call that a complete, utter crock of shit would be too dignified.

Also, as is not made clear by the article, he was commenting to ME in a low, conversational tone – NOT screaming his head off, as some people seem to believe.

You’d better believe we are going to complain. And appeal.

every hotel had a metal detector and a urgent sign telling everyone that riffles are not permitted in the hotel. I did not see any no smoking signs :-)

Carrington Farm Empty Building

Carrington Farm Empty Building

In addition to the double wide trailer we are staying in, our vacant land has six structures on it. The structures range from a potting shed to a one room cabin on top of the hill with a wall full of windows facing a water view. It’s time to take photos for the real estate listing.

This photo is of a structure down near the farm. It’s got an old wood stove in it and is wired for electricity.

The ‘for sale’ sign will show up in the front yard tomorrow. I feel a little sad.

Wildfires in Colorado and New Mexico

For the past week, a series of wildfires have been burning in northern New Mexico and central Colorado. This color enhanced image from the Suomi NPP satellite shows the smoke and heat signatures on June 11, 2013. The Suomi NPP VIIRS sensor’s highly detailed infrared detectors are able to provide more greater detail about the locations of active fires.

our smoke alarm is a hypochondriac. whenever the oven is on, it goes off. to make matters worse, the paranoid former owners of the house wired the detector into house power, so you can’t take the batteries out to turn it off.

so here is my new invention. the customary bottom fan was not doing the job, so i tied the top fan to the attic pull string doohicky.

we could test airplane wings in this hallway now.

This just makes no sense to me. They took down the smoke detector, why not the mounting?

At my old apartment I was replacing the battery of the smoke detector and this is the warning underneath the battery. I thought it was funny.

The stripped and defatted carcass went in a pot with celery, onions and herbs; slow-simmered and strained, it will make fabulous stock.

Or would have, had I not turned the burner to "high" instead of "off" before bed. Thank god for smoke detectors…

I roast in front of an open window in my kitchen, with a fan blowing outward. I also usually open the windows in adjoining rooms and turn on the ceiling fan. A small amount of smoke (and a strong aroma) are released during the roasting process, and failing to vent the roasting area will result in a cloudy room and howling smoke detectors. Alternatively, you can roast outdoors in warm weather (above 60F is good). Roasting outdoors in colder weather isn’t feasible because too much heat is lost from the popper and the coffee will roast extremely slowly, if at all.

Proof that mess is better than clean (or: how I killed my toasteroven)
This morning, like most mornings, I took a shower and left the bathroom floor a little wet. After getting dressed and before leaving, I realized I hadnt shaved, but already had my socks on, and the bathroom floor was still wet. I hate this situation. There’s no good way to not get one’s socks wet. I went for putting on a pair of shoes and entering the wet bathroom like that. The trouble with this approach is that it leaves dirt-marks on the kitchen floor when you get out. Normally I could care less but lately the dorm’s been installing smoke detectors in everyones rooms, so there was a good chance hongo-san would open up the room and i’d get yelled at again to ゛set a better example." So I felt copelled to wipe it up. Silly idea. If they actually noticed the floor after surviving the initial shock of the rest of the room, there’s also an equal chance of them falling into a dimensional vortex.
Anyway apparently when the floor dried, it tdeveloped an industial grade lubricant film of super-slippery, because when I came home to grab a book I did a full heels-over-head flip onto the toaster. ow. I don’t think the toaster enjoyed it either.
Anyway had it not been for that damn impulse to clean, my back wouldnt hurt, and I could make myself some pizza-bagel to celebrate. i know next-year’s new year’s resolution… (*_*)

Stove fire. Yeah. It sucked.

Stove fire. Yeah. It sucked.
smoke detector

So – a few lessons for everyone – not just me.

If you have a bag of chips you want to keep out of the hands of a two year old, be smart, and don’t put it on the stove.

Make sure you turn on the RIGHT ring, and don’t leave the kitchen if it’s turned on – even for 60 seconds. That’s all this took.

Make sure your smoke detectors work. Ours does, but it wasn’t sensitive enough. If it doesn’t go off when something smokes on the ring, it isn’t. Ours will be replaced tomorrow with a new unit that is more sensitive. (And don’t cheap out.)

Have more than 1 detector. We have two. The one at our basement entrance was also going off at the same time as the upstairs. It’s new, upstairs isn’t.

If you have a fire extinguisher, don’t put it under your sink. Put it somewhere visible. I installed ours, and knew where it was. I ran to my TRUCK to get one, because I KNEW where to get it. (I screamed at Lin to do so, but the truck was locked, and I had to get my keys… this could have cost us our home.) As it was, I had a bottle of monoammonium phosphate (ABC powder) that knocked the flames out in time. Burners will reignite anything… Get it off if you want it to go out… DON’T RISK YOUR SAFETY TO DO SO.

If you feel compelled to swat at the flames to get them out, don’t. Debris will scatter. My toe is proof, as is my Lino.

A damp cloth kept the flames at bay until I returned with the extinguisher, I was prepared at that point to call 911. It was still under control when I returned with the extinguisher. No reignition, no flames, fire out.

Once the fire is under control, EVERY window, door, and opening open. FANS blow with the natural breeze, not against it to get the smoke out. The longer the smoke is in the house, the more risk of smoke damage.

IF THE FIRE WAS NEAR A STOVE FAN: IT IS NOT OVER YET.

You MUST check for extension of the fire into the hood fan vent. IF you see no smoke coming from the outside vent, once all stovetop sources of possible combustion are OUT, TURN ON THE FAN for at least 30 minutes. WATCH THE VENT EXIT FOR ANY SIGN OF SMOKE. If it reignites in the vent, you can call 911. If you don’t, and it smoulders until late night and reignites while you are sleeping – it could be very very bad.

So… Stove is almost clean. Need some replacement knobs and burners. Vent hood will be replaced for one with a fireproof lining, not holes that vent into the cabinets above.

Lino has some burns and will need to be replaced. I guess the insurance company will be getting a a call tomorrow. Or tonight. Hrm. I wonder.

The hotel room did not have any sort of smoke detector, but did have some reassuring red wires where one will be installed one day. Maybe I should have stuck with the No Smoking room after all.

A contractor had placed a glove over a smoke detector while working but had forgotten to remove it, just the sort of thing our Health & Safety folk look out for.
