I haven't been updating this much. Work has been keeping me very busy and I don't feel like sitting down and playing on my home computer after slaving over a hot computer all day. And I've been working a lot on the remodel . I've finally updated the construction pictures although I still need to add some commentary.

I've been doing a lot of the finishing work -- painting, trim addition, cleanup and running errands for the contractors. I don't need to pay someone else $35 an hour to do that.

But I have some more entires to put up here -- I've been taking pictures and have some to blog.

And, just as I update this, I have to hit the road for work. First a few days in Santa Clara, California. Then a night at Black Butte Ranch before flying to Helsinki, Finland . I'll have connectivity in Finland so I'll be able to upload pictures from there. Stay tuned.
