    Not wanting to look. It would be better if it was warm enough out for a lengthy bike ride.

    Yeah, I sold my insurance agency and start a career at a software development firm. Pretty excited considering that I don't have any education in CS. Plus its nice that I was able to pay off my house with the proceeds of my sale of my business

    It's turning into spring out here. Today won't make 70, tomorrow will top 80. That's our spring. We were almost at 90 last week, then dropped back to 50 the next day.

    Re: Post Race!

    Yea so to speak as my third job. I rent my house to my daughter and her boyfriend with their kids at a discount for family. I got married a few years ago and moved into my wifes house. I started my small carbon fiber car parts business back in January 2012 and we ship world wide now. Canada and the middle east are my main international customer base. I'm still programming professionally as my day job. So I'm multitasking to the max lol.

    What do you specialize in with the carbon fiber parts? The reason I ask is because there is a small but dedicated Mustang II community that is finding it increasingly difficult to find parts.

    Re: Post Race!

    I rent out properties and I'm taking an absolute bath on it right now. I've lost 4 tenants as they've gone back to stay with family during the lockdown and decided not to return. That represents a little under £2K a month and there's really no way of refilling those tenancies during lockdown so I'm just having to take it on the chin.

    Thankfully my development work has carried on (and I even managed to negotiate a rate increase) and that's covering the loss. So I'm actually reasonably comfortable but I'm watching my retirement roll back in the dim and distant future.

    I'm pretty nearly unchanged. Thinking about changing jobs, more or less, to semi-retire while I can still hike.

    Re: Post Race!

    Yeah, that's the plan. There's a project that a few states have tried out. They've ended up with highly proprietary systems costing from half a million to millions. I have created a generic, plug-in, based variant. I don't want to sell it, because that's not who I want to be, but if I can find a host or hosts (probably state agencies or academic institutions), then I'd be happy to maintain the core elements and build custom plugins for people. Wouldn't need all that much money, either, as I can retire early with a pension that would cover most of my living expenses, and I'd gladly trade money for time, these days, especially if it's flexible time.

    COVID has put me on the back foot, though. My plan was to take a bit of a tour this fall, talking to various interested parties. Now....I don't know if anybody will be open to talking about anything, to anybody, at any particular time.

    Mostly the newer models as Ive found that mustangs from 64.5 to 86 dont have a market. Its rare that a guy will be looking for carbon parts as most restore back to original.

    Maybe they looking for oem parts as sure those got to be scarce.

    The II has a good suspension and body for drag racing and so a lot of people tear out their II and convert it to a drag racer (which I hate to be honest).

    The COVID problem will stop at a some point, it is just a question of time. Don't despair, you should be able to back to you plan in a few months and have just a 6 month shift. If you do your tour during winter or next spring, they may even have new budget.

    Yeah, or they may be underwater and sinking, or back into lock down. The issue with COVID is not so much the damage it is doing, as the uncertainty that it brings with it. Very hard to plan for this fall or winter with so much yet to be resolved.

    it is a question of Reference frames so both are Ok (well, that's what Albert told me)

    beside that, Humans are not meant to stay locked up with maybe a cat but the cat may consent to be locked up with maybe a human (if this one feed it), that maybe why they try to put the cat in the box and stay outside (a lot of maybe !!)

    Yeah, the one your trying to put in a box. When I had to put my cat into a carrier, there would be blood!!! Then the poor guy would panic, never a pleasant experience for either of us. If I would left the carrier open on the floor he would have probably slept in it.

    My sisters cats complained loudly about the carriers...but they'd sleep on them, too. It was something of a love/hate relationship.

    My actual cat doesn't care of any box, it prefers the dog basket. So the dog sleeps on the floor.

    Yeah, but that cats going to gradually shuffle left until he's got the lot. A cat would definitely hog the arm rest in a cinema.
