The Lion of 2016 Enters

It was a pleasant end of February, weather-wise, and work has been great. Our crew has been settling in very well and we're doing very well with our customers, which is what matters most.

Saturday afternoon (27 February), I restored the headlights on my 10 year old Toyota Corolla. The headlights has became cloudy and yellowed over time, which degrades my headlight performance at night. About an hour of work using the Heavy Duty Headlight Restoration Kit from Meguiar's (http://www.meguiars.com) cleared up the headlights and made them like new. I noticed right away the better effectiveness with the clearer headlights. Plus, it looks much better.

Much of last weekend I spent trying to get more work done on the new issue of Middle Marker, journal of the Missouri Aviation Historical Society (http://moavhist.org). I was trying to get text on a story to flow from one column to the next, but I was having trouble getting that to happen. Maybe I'm missing a step somewhere. Anyway, I want to get some more done on that this weekend.

With my mom, I watched the Academy Awards (http://www.oscars.com) on television. Not having seen the nominated movies, I didn't have any dog in this fight, but I just wanted to see how this would go. It was rather interesting.

It was most pleasant over the weekend, with temperatures approaching 70 degrees F (21.1 degrees C) and sunny skies. That changed early this week, as it got cloudy, with a bit of rain early in the week and temperatures dropping to 32 degrees F (0 degrees C). It will pick up again this weekend. Got to love St. Louis weather!

After work last night (2 March), I walked to the nearby St. Louis Taco and Pita Grill for the Ethnic Restaurant Fans Meetup group (http://www.meetup.com/Ethnic-Restaurant-Fans/). Seven of us had a nice dinner at the restaurant, which has a mix of Mexican, Greek, and American fare. I had a taco and enchilada dinner, which was most tasty. I have dined there twice before and, like last night, enjoyed generous portions at a reasonable price.
