Random Update Of A CLR Morris Well In Oakdale Oil Field -- August 25, 2019

See these wells at this post.
There is no evidence that this well has been re-fracked:
  • 17334, 811, CLR, Morris 1-23H, t11/08/ cum 309K 6/19; another re-frack candidate; off-line 5/18; back on line as of 6/18; back on line as of 4/19; looks like a pretty significant halo effect;

Music -- August 25, 2019

Among so many things, one thing that interests me so much is why music is such a big deal.

I honestly don't get it. I assume there has been much written about music and humanity. If so, I haven't read it.

I was pleasantly surprised to see three major essays in the "Review" section of this week's weekend edition of the WSJ, two of which were all about music:
  • the story of Hoagy Carmichael's and Mitchell Parish's "Star Dust";
  • "Greetings of Planet Earth" -- the story of the Voyager spacecraft that carried a gold-plated LP -- a mixtape for aliens filled with Bach, Chuck Berry, Japanese gamelan music, and more;  and, 
  • "How Much Time Do We Have Left" -- don't worry -- scientists can predict with 95% confidence that the world won't end before 2031.

Caveman Grilling -- August 25, 2019

Wow, I'm in a great mood. I tried a new way of "grilling" tonight.

My brother-in-law called it "caveman grilling" when I explained what I was going to do.

I think I mentioned it the other day.

I stopped by Barbecue Outfitters, Southlake, TX, on Friday, got a bag of Fogo lump charcoal.

I bought an incredibly cheap cut of skirt steak. Only flavoring that I added was Australian flake sea salt.

Skirt steak:
From wiki: Skirt steak is a cut of beef steak from the plate. It is long, flat, and prized for its flavor rather than tenderness. Skirt steak is the cut of choice for making fajitas, ranchera, Chinese stir-fry, churrasco, and in Cornish pasties.
So, Fogo:

Then getting the fire going.

And then putting the meat directly on the hardwood.

One minute -- yes, one minute -- on the embers.

Then in heavy aluminum foil for at least fifteen minutes. While I was doing this, May was baking salmon, sauteing asparagus, and grilling shrimp.

The skirt steak was incredibly tasty. My wife said it was the best tasting steak she had ever had, and she was serious. A little chewy ... just like wiki said.

Note: do not do this using "regular" charcoal. Regular briquets have additives that will seriously hurt you if you throw the meat directly into the coal.

EV Trucks; Daimler-Benz; Portland, OR; California Grant; And All That Jazz -- August 25, 2019

Back to the Daimler / EV truck story which I mentioned earlier but never got back to until now.

Posted earlier: shis has to do with EV trucks being built by Daimler (the Mercedes Benz company) in Portland, Oregon:

First link:
Tesla might have been the first to generate a lot of fanfare over an all-electric Semi, but it’s not the first to actually place an electric Semi with customers for full-time use.
That nod would go to Daimler Trucks North America. The initial two Freightliner eCascadia semis were built [in Portland, OR] this week for its Electric Innovation Fleet—funded by a $16 million California grant—and they’ll be placed into duty later this month by the Southern California operations of two companies: Penske Truck Leasing and NFI.
The company’s intent is to test how the trucks fare in large-scale fleet conditions, and the innovation fleet “will inform the final production versions” of its two upcoming electric trucks, the eCascadia, and the medium-duty Freightliner eM2. Daimler also has an Electric Vehicle Council of 38 customers “to identify and address all potential hurdles to large-scale deployment of commercial battery electric vehicles.”
How much range these trucks can achieve, while performing the tasks they’re expected to—year round—has been one of the great challenges for development teams. Daimler has quoted a range figure of 250 miles from the eCascadia pack’s 550 kwh of usable capacity (with an 80-percent charge possible in about 90 minutes), while Tesla has stuck to claims of versions offering 300 and 500 miles. 
From the second link:
Daimler Trucks North America said Wednesday it will begin making electric Freightliner trucks in Portland and expects to start local production in 2021.
Daimler had already been developing electrification technology at its research labs on Swan Island but had previously said it would manufacture its electric trucks in North Carolina. On Wednesday, though, Daimler said it will begin converting its existing Freightliner factory in Portland to make electric vehicles.
The big story here?

Daimler had originally planned to build these truck on the east coast (North Carolina) but will now build the first ones on the west coast (Portland, OR).

Over the past few years there has been a bit of "tension," shall we say among workers at the two big Daimler factories in the US. First, there was just the one, at Portland. Daimler then built another truck manufacturing plant in North Carolina, causing some anxiety among the Oregon workers.

Then came the announcement that the first Daimler EV trucks would be built at their North Carolina factory, causing more anxiety among the Oregon workers.

Now two data points of interest:
  • Daimler has unveiled the first EV semi built in Portland; and, 
  • there is word that Daimler has bought another site north of Portland, in Washington state. The site is undeveloped; no word what that site might be used for.

For The Archives -- Updating the PGA FedEx Tour Championship -- Third Round -- August 25, 2019

2:50 p.m. after eight holes, Rory holds on by one stroke. 

Later, 2:46 p.m. Central Time, near the end of the front nine, last round, all of a sudden the event has become quite exciting. Coverage is no better, has not changed, but now the top three -- getting very, very exciting -- three-stroke swing on seventh (?) hole which put Rory McIlroy into the lead.
