Forms and fill




My house is going to be built on dog food?


See that? The distance between the forms and the fence is just over 11 feet. It was supposed to be 6 feet. That matters because the road in front of the house is angled, so shifting the house over means being able to shift it a little further forward, thus embiggening the backyard. It's not a huge amount, since the road isn't angled that much, but we've been through a lot to get it right, and it's annoying that it's wrong.

Bowing Barack

For the record I also think Barack Obama shouldn't have bowed to the Emperor of Japan. Nor should he kiss the Pope's ring, if that ever happens. Of course, I also think both of those men should be up against the wall with the Queen of England, but that's neither here nor there.


We have clearing

The best feature of Picasa

It does not modify the original image. You can of course achieve that on your own, but for it to be automatic makes a big difference.


If only I had seen this sooner...


We've already put our deposits down on the new house, sadly. No minimum! No reserve!

In other news, I don't quite fit The Economist's target demographic.
