Just one to go... (Update...Just!)

A few people have taken the time to mention that I am approaching my century - almost 100 Instructables.

OK, so plenty of people have gotten there before me, but this is my first hundred on the horizon.

I have now published #99, and I know what #100 will be.

Looking ahead, though, what will your hundredth project be?


#100 nearly didn't happen, as I came off the road on the way to the site.  Fortunately, the people I was going to meet came to meet me part way and helped pull the Mini out of the field.  The Mini is now awaiting diagnosis at the garage, which will certainly involve the words "bent" and "steering".

Anyhoo, I got what I needed, now just putting together some more research notes with the photos, then get it checked by an expert...

  • #100 is, effectively, done.  I'm just waiting for the expert who helped me to give it a once-over to check I've got my facts straight.  Since I've been using her work email address, I expect to here sometime Monday...


Ow!  My shoulders, neck and back are ceasing up, typing is getting painful (something to do with dropping three feet at fifty and coming to a dead stop in the field...).

But, the garage where I dropped Womble off has just phoned to say they can't find anything obviously wrong (or bent) with the car that would explain why the front wheels are pointing in different directions.  They theorise that the impact bounced things a notch or three along without actually damaging anything.

But, they also recommend taking it to a specialist bodyshop to get it checked...


And now I have Womble back - all that was needed, after all that fuss, was a slight adjustment of the tracking.  Now that is engineering.


#99 is now finished off with photos of the piñata in action.

Looking forward to it!

Glad to hear you and Womble are (essentially) OK.  But the fact that you were headed to the site on your 100th ible, and became 'derailed' in such spectacular fashion, might be seen as "a sign from God".  I'd rethink the nature of my ible, or at even rehash my thoughts of the last couple of days.  "He moves in mysterious ways", and it could've cost you your Womble!

Haha, it's even funnier when you find out that #100 is about brewing beer.

Oh, well maybe the fact that you and Womble are OK is the sign.  I tend to think like Martin Luther on that one.  He seemed to think that a brewer was doing the work of the Lord.  

Also, Benjamin Franklin said something along the lines of "Beer is proof that there is a God, and that He loves us."

Oh, not even beer is enough to convert me!
I'll take your  word for it, but maybe you've never tasted the right beer, or pondered the right scriptures.

If a porter brewed by actual monks can't do it... ;-)
