The Gnomes Cometh
Ok, so.. Im bored. And Im back at this blogging thing. At least it gives me something to do at a time like this. Lucky me.


So. Yeah., Its Tuesday. I did get a new Tiller for the garden. Thank God. That ancient piece of equipment Ive been using should have been retired 30 years ago. This new one is gigantic (though a 4' box tiller would have done me far better). But this one will work for the next few years till I get a bigger tractor. The garden has been poisoned to kill off the winter weeds and I should start cultivating the soil in a week or two. I planted herbs in cups today.. they will stay inside for the next two months to sprout and then transplant to the herb garden. And thats the status with the garden



I talked to my old friend Mike Donahoe on the phone the other day. Was good to hear from him. Glad Sara found me on myspace and I was able to get a hold of him.



Also got the bathroom completely gutted and expanded. Next phase as prying up all the old oak flooring. Then I can put in the new cement board for the subflooring (to prep for the tile floor) and put the new tub in place so I can build the wet wall at the one end. Once the wet wall is up I can do the plumbing, then finish off the wall there and the divider wall for the two closets... Then up goes the wallboard and the shower walls. And thats where the bathroom is at.



And the LAST thing to discuss. Is that crazy Gnome down in Argentina. The... aka Terror Gnome. If you haven't seen the video... go look it up. Its freaky. Its hilarious at the same time. Kinda like the Travelocity Gnome turned evil lol.



That is all.

Its March. Yay.
Ok, so its March. Hmm still not too sold on the whole blog thing. I guess it gives me a moment of pause to reflect. So thats kinda good I think.

Stocks are down, that sucks bad. I think we might be recession headed which, as I alluded to, sucks bad.

It is however warming up. A good bit of weed and grass killer has been sprayed everywhere and I should be able to start tilling the garden and de-thatching the lawn. (Yeah I know you all wanna hear about that.) I desperately need a new tiller so if I play my cards right I might be able to afford one by the end of the month

I also finally managed to destroy the last remnants of the old shower in the guest bathroom. Hauled all the debris, about 1,500 lbs worth, off to the dump today. Next comes building the "cove" for the new tub/shower and taking up the old flooring. Well thats it for now. Later.

My new blog
Well.. new site.. new stuff. Finally decided to do the blog thing. I doubt I'll do much but hey... should be interesting to say the least.
I could have written the cold fusion script myself but that would have taken a month.. so a quick google search found this script that was readily adaptable to the. Had to change a few things around and edit a bit to get it to work in an iframe to keep it all the 'blog' template page but it seems to be working fine.
Had to use an MS access database as I only have one MySQL slot left and didnt want to waste it just yet.
Oh well.. its up.. working and I have the rest of the site to put together.
Fun Fun Fun..
