Air and Space Museum DC ~

 Yesterday, we went to DC... and now I remember why we don't go up there unless it is a Holiday.  
Found a parking place
on the street right next to the museum we were going to. Normally it cost $22.00 to park, but on the street.. only $4.60!!

Was very interesting, the areas that used to be grass, are now  food gardens for the people that live there. The Pres Wife has done a lot to get food gardens growing all over DC.
Very cool.

Neat to see the Enterprise model.. ....
but folks in the museum were packed in like sardines.
Walked as much as I could, about an hour and then had to quit.

If it wasn't so hot out... would of gone to the stunning Botanical gardens they have.  
Could of used a wheel chair, as there
weren't a lot of people.
Ah well.. next time.

 Original USS Enterprise Model used in the first 
Star Trek TV show.

New Drive Band for my Spinning Wheel~

It was driving me nuts to have a new drive band and not having it on my wheel.
Thought I would be brave enough to take it part, but I thought back to when I had to originally put it together... was a massive royal pain.

I just couldn't get the first cheap replacement drive band to melt together...
thought it was me, no matter what I did, I could not get it to work.

So I bought a Majacraft band. $$ But worth it.

 Practiced on the old band, with the video using the small candle to heat the band ends and to stick it together... it worked, not perfect but I could do it.
So I am thinking that first replacement drive band, maybe had sat too long?

Anyway, with the new Majacraft band, was quick and easy, let it set for 20 minutes and started spinning.

So now I am happily spinning again!
