I see the inevitable has happened. The price of regular gas has hit $2.00 a liter. Remember when it hit $1.00? That was an issue as the pumps couldn't display the price. Well, did they take into account that someday it might be $10 a liter? I'll have given up my car by then.
Someone mentioned that raising the price is forcing people to buy electric cars. Seriously?? If anything, it should be encouraging people to buy more fuel-efficient/smaller vehicles, but that will NEVER happen. People will absorb that higher price and think nothing of it. There's no doubt that people LOVE their huge vehicles and will not give them up! I love the concept of electric cars, and our infrastructure is getting better to support them. However, I'm not convinced that the price difference for the car offsets what you would save in gas. It would take me a LOT of driving to pay for the higher-priced electric car as I'm already pretty fuel-efficient.

So let's take a look and see what's been happening in Studio B.
I got a bit obsessed with the cleaning thing. I'm reading a weird book -- supernatural, ghosts, and secret societies would be the best way to describe it. Not my favorite genre, but someone recommended it. So while doing that, I was Swiftering away and then vacuuming up the leftovers bits. I even turned the vacuum upside down and cleaned all the crap from the roller bar, which is fun in a sewing space.
Then I tackled that cutting table. Once and for all, I will make this thing look halfway decent.
I removed everything to the current project table, although two project cases are sitting on the floor in front of the cutting table as I need to do some cutting later today. I moved the tabletop and dusted the bunnies along the back edge.
|WOW -- there's a cutting table|
