Oooh chair dancing!
This morning James Blunt’s “I’ll be your man” got me dancing in my chair. Great way to start the day!
The best laid plans
Even when you plan and plan, and you take the steps you know to be true, your body can defeat you. Ah yes, I know it’s cryptic. There is something I yearn to do and I’m working on it—but my body may have other plans. Thankfully I have a plan a, plan b and plan c.
Ahh building codes
Well, I certainly found a way to use the last hour… Perhaps it was not the best. Building codes. Those puppies are not the easiest to follow. Minimum size for your house? I got minimums on basements, on wall heights, on how close a wall can be to a urinal. Yes… I think you see. I did learn nice things about natural lighting (of course HGTV and Income Property-Scott McGillvray-already...
Can this work in Alaska?
Tumbleweed tiny houses…. Yes, I am looking into building a small house - one that is the right size for me plus one. I’d also like my utilities to approximate what they were in Portland (July - Dec 2010) … What I saw made me really rethink GVEA/GHU… and my use. Sure things cost more in Alaska. That makes sense. Right? No. Not if I reconsider size and purpose. Now,...
Found it: something worth posting about →
Thanks to John Miller via my FB feed… I found this (yes, I know I’m about to repost it via RSS back to FB… but on the way it will hit Tumblr and a different audience of friends and colleagues.) What I’ve been thinking lately is how do I contribute things that are worth reading vs posts about staying away from potato chips? Found it. Thanks John and thanks to Kendall,...
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a...– Came across http://cpb.passiontask.com/ “–found in Time Enough for Love by Robert Heinlein” Specialization is for Insects (Robert Heinlein) … This morning this struck me as so true.
Ephermeral and promulgated
Can you believe it? Both of these words in one sentence (almost before 9am) from one participant in iTeach. What a blast! Still drinking from the fire hose. I love being here. What I do not love is my upstairs neighbor’s teenage son playing video games at 11pm at night when I have to be at work at 7:15am. Yup. I said it.
What happened to Monday?
Must be about every 6th or 7th Monday that I need to have a slow start to my week. This is the day! I’m so run down and tired. Not a good start to iTeach! I must get awake and going—because iTeach happens at break-neck speed. Learn more at iteach.community.uaf.edu

So, who wouldn’t!? I’d like to take lessons though. I remember four or five years ago I walked into a store and asked to sign up… They wanted to know how old my daughter or son was…
Compare and contrast - ... Go! →
Here I am looking at the differences between PmWiki and PBworks… yes, Drupal and WordPress can be just a little too much for some purposes.
One less house (duplex) … two fewer tenants! Yay! This is less income, but it is less bills too. All for the good. Congrats to Sara - she’s a new home owner (I sold to one of my tenants.)
You watched it...
You can’t unwatch it. (Futurama) Right! And banging your head against the wall until you forget it is not a great choice either. While I am not a big Futurama fan, I do know the wisdom to ‘be careful where you click.’ Time to get back to figuring out where/how/when and then sleep!
Okay, I’m awaiting another technician — no, not plumbers — for a different housing issue… and they were supposed to be here at 10a (this was a reschedule from yesterday.) I wanted to cancel, seeing as I’m still new to my job and would prefer to be *at work* during the day… Novel, I know. In any case, I didn’t cancel… but they told me they’d...
Today (6/1) I have health care coverage. What? When AOOS DM @ UAF closed down last year I lost my benefits. (10/1/2010) Now, eight months later, I have health care again. This has been an interesting road.
