    Yeah - but we'll be gallivanting around looking at houses. That's just FUN! Plus, we can show you a few of the local natural attractions.

    I have a 4 quart one that you use rock salt and ice but I was wondering if the smaller ones that you just freeze the bowl are any good at making ice cream.

    I enjoy seeing the pictures and hearing the stories of what all you do, thank you for sharing.
    Really glad to hear this Evie.

    Rave, that's a shame about your Jeep. I hate automotive wiring, the logic behind it always boggles my mind. I'm fixing up my Jeep one problem at a time. I got the crankshaft position sensor replaced and now it needs a vehicle speed sensor...it used to be a speedometer cable. At least it isn't too expensive and I can do it with a ratchet and some cursing. The big trick is not having it hot from driving, but I seem to keep making post office runs to ship stuff which keeps putting it off.

    Glad to hear you're doing better, Evie!

    Terry, I have excellent results with a single fan on exhaust. The trick is to limit the air intake to one location or small intake in multiple locations. We may have an insulation advantage as well with a house versus a mobile home. Worst case, get a bigger fan! Finger, toes and eyes crossed that a house is in your near future.

He's rewired buses and they take miles of wire. But, it's not something that can be done before Terry's visit. I can't even believe he's offering to do this for me. Dunno what I'd do without him. I'll have to do my best to make it up to him somehow.

    *sigh*
    Uh oh! We aren't going to look for houses without you.

There are always things that come up. And, they are paying for it as they go along. Even though they make excellent wages in their jobs, it still takes a lot to build a house. I'm guessing that it will be two years before they are able to move out - give or take. Sure hope I'm wrong, but I think that it realistic.
    ACK, two years is too long without some house rules. That's not nearly close enough for the Xes on the calendar thing.

    The problem with me, money and construction is that I seem to keep running out of money before I can finish, then I end up redesigning and tweaking while I'm trying to come up with more. Then it just goes on and on. I finish it eventually, but it always takes me a little longer than I planned.

    I have started the "Montgomery Scott" (Scotty on Star Trek) rule for estimating time to complete a project. Guess how long it will take, then seriously analyze how long it will take, add 100% to that then multiply by three. That way if I'm done sooner I feel better!

    I have been watching H&G TV a lot lately, and they usually finish witin the time-frame, but NEVER without unexpected $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ problems.
