photos from passover, as promised


























so I took a bunch of pix, but I lost the cable to transfer data form my camera to my computer, so it will wait a bit.

Gas prices high where you live? I don't wanna hear it.

yes, i bought a diesel, cause diesel is easier to refine, and therefore cheaper. Except in California. $3.50/gallon.

first, clarification. house has to be lifted off piers piers cut, adjusted to make fit then house lowered back and re-attached. Yes, a big big pita


next, this just in from mom

I find this very cool. and am considering staging it


SO! yes, it has been a while. things have been hectic and insane.

Brad is almost to Butte, Montana, and facing a challenging trip. Swing by his weblog, and poke him up some cheer?

Our house is falling apart. Well, no, actually, yes. There are cracks in the drywall, and the doors are hard to close. I understand Pier and Beam construction. sort of. So I crawled under the house to look, and ya know what I saw? Piers. And Beams!

Alan Barbic recommended a structural engineer, and on Tuesday Mr. Jones came out and crawled under the house. You know what he saw? Piers. And Beams. And a foundation perimeter that has settled over the years, below the piers and beams.

Causing our floor to look like a saucer, that has been turned upside down, and is highest in the center, and sloping down to the edges.

We are discussing price and affordability to re-level. This will have to happen before re-roofing. Yikes, another housing pellet to eat.

The super-loo in my bathroom is some off pressurized toilet tank, and it loses pressure if not flushed every 6 hours... So in the morning, Flush! whooom! Nothing. Hello Poop! Whay didn't you go away? That has to be fixed.

The bath tub in my bathroom has started shipping at the bottom, and the water drips unless you turn the faucet directly between hot and cold, then turn it off. Great

But those have to wait till re-leveling.

The backyard is nearly done. that is nice. YAY Nice.



Someone is interested in Sara's TTR, I hope they buy it. I will try to clean up the Chappy this weekend, and put an ad on Craigslist for that too.


Saul talks in his sleep.

i just got a new Mac Book Pro notebook for work. I will configure it tomorrow, and hopefully have a laptop that does not crash ot lose all my data, or get virus infected every 10 days.

Sara's hair looks great. I need to get a photo. It is at a very nice length, and looks pretty.



I think that is most of the news.

this just in from David in Austin


A Jewish father was concerned about his son who was sorely lacking in his knowledge of the Jewish faith. To remedy this, he sent his son to Israel. A year later the young man returned home. "Father, thank you for sending me to the land of our Fathers," the son said. "It was wonderful and enlightening; however, I must confess that while in Israel I converted to Christianity."

"Oi vey," replied the father, "what have I done?" In the tradition of the patriarchs, he went to the Rabbi.

"It is amazing that you should come to me," said the Rabbi. "I, too, sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian."

"What is happening to our sons?" they cried.

"Brother, we must take this to the Lord," said the Rabbi. They fell to their knees and began to wail and pour out their hearts to the Almighty.

As they prayed, the clouds above opened and a mighty voice said, "Amazing that you should come to Me. I, too, sent My Son to Israel..."

I just found out that CHICK Publishing has a website. They make the gospel 'comic books' that I oddly seem to collect. You often find them in bus stations, laundromats, etc.

I do not know what my fascination is with them, probably because I like the stories of how HORRIBLE life can be, then, according to these guys, you accept their form of god, and its all better.

Mini morality plays, etc.

Anyhow, they have a website that lists some of the comics, I have enjoyed spending the last hour reading over them, and being very happy for the life and brains I have.

This WAS your Life

Are Roman Catholics REALLY Christians?

Love the Jewish People

Brad's in Portland. having adventures. I suggested he have some pizza, maybe that will help. He replied with this highly informative web page about west coast pizza.

I rode like a demon at the MX track Sunday.

Saul can say "knee" and point to his.
