In the World of the High Tech Redneck, the Graybeard is the old guy who earned his gray by making all the mistakes, and then tries to keep the young 'uns from repeating them. Silicon Graybeard is my term for an old hardware engineer; a circuit designer. Here are mental droppings from a newly retired radio engineer running from tech news to economics; from firearms to the world at large; from radio to home machine shops and making all kinds of stuff.

Mrs. Graybeard and I are heading out and about today, and I'm not sure I'll have time to post much, so just some odds and ends. Tomorrow is our 30th wedding anniversary, and we're taking the opportunity to just celebrate and enjoy. Went to dinner last night, and probably will tonight, too. There were too many times when I thought we'd never get to have 30 years to let it go by uncelebrated. There's a fun show in a nearby town which we've never gone to, so that will be part of the day.
For Lawyer With A Gun, who posts the news that he's now a proud daddy, and for my own son who now has his first, the best baby instructions evah:
I have to say I can't look at this without at least a chuckle - if not laughing out loud, and I hope it gets the same reaction from everyone. Don't remember where I got it - it's been on my machine since 2009.
