"An official with Air Canada's regional carrier Jazz says the airline is removing life vests from all its planes to save weight and fuel."

Next thing to go - the seats.

8 Tracks

Playing side of a CD Video produced in 1987Image via Wikipedia This is funny... Muxtape, a site that helped the music industry by promoting new music, was shut down by, er, the music industry... And only a day later we see a new site: 8Tracks. Which is completely different! Unlike Muxtrade, which allowed using to assemble a 12 track mix, 8Tracks
allows users to assemble a mix of 8 tracks!

What'll they think of next!

"It's a pretty simple concept: if our use of fossil fuels is increasing our reliance on Middle Eastern dictators while destroying the planet, maybe we ought to use less."

Hm, ya think?

Project, Day 109

There's been some progress, but it's not an everyday thing anymore. The past couple of weeks I've been able to get some watch work done instead for the first time since the project began.
The missing sliver of green tile in the bathroom, at the edge of the door frame, is now in place. If I can get a curtain of some sort for the bathroom, I'll call the room done.
In the entryway, the last pieces of trim along the floor are cut, but not installed. That won't take long. These last two sets of corners are in the original finish (old pieces) so as to match the dining room. The new ones, on the opposite side of both the fornt and the closet doors are the darker, redish, finish. The mismatch isn't too bad. I'm not going to replace all the trim in the dining room at this time at any rate.

All this just leaves the hallway. In the hall, the door frame to the living room was removed so there's quite a bit of work to be done yet on the hall side, that doesn't show from the living room. It's going to need some additional woodwork to fill in some trim, more plaster, and textured paint.
