Did I just find the perfect disguise for our Flatuosity Meter?

During our Wrench Army live stream, we successfully prototyped a fart… I mean Flatuosity Meter!

Shop Dog Eeyore reminds me to stop and smell the fall leaves…

Fall is my favorite time of year! Not only does it lead up to my favorite holiday - Halloween - but it's also a reminder that next year is right around the corner.

Just when I start getting consumed by various projects, Eeyore has a way of reminding me to take a moment to appreciate where you are and what you've accomplished. They definitely have life figured out!
