on location, amherst ma

visiting local libraery to get my lj fix--been in wendell since last wed. doing maintinance/expansion work at the cabin--digging holes (lotsa rocks) for footings--spozed to get a phone installed tomorrow; we'll see-they claim there shouldn't be any installation fee; phone line does run by the property--unlike electric--elect co wants $16,000 to extend service 1000 feet--i only have one thing to say to that, 'fuck em'--been rooting around the umass engineering dept trying to get leads on solar elect--no hard info yet, but some names and numbers--i'll keep ya posted--i gotta at least get enough juice to power the 'puter (may have to invest in a laptop for...energy consumption considerations ;)

so, the work goes slowly but well after first digging my way through the snowplow pack at drives end (snow has since all but completely melted) and chasing out the squirrels (nasty lil red squirrels who've been bad-mouthing me ever since) who had managed to chew their way through the screen on a ventway; now they can try breaking their sharp pointy little teeth on 1/2 inch wire mesh in addition to replaced screen--fuckers!

got some good (i think) pix of 'spring comes to wendell' that i'll post after returning to nj and my own computer on wed

be good lj, and watch out for squirrels~

  • Camera fiddlin'

    I've been thinking about trying some unusual combinations.

  • this & that

    Not a lot of excitement going on in my life. The trip East a couple of weeks ago was the last adventure. Still get to ride the bike in this enjoyable…

  • Garden

    Only the middle of August and already the garden is starting to die down. Global warming? Inattentive gardener? Just the way it's s'posed to be? :-)…
