yes! the laptop is working, not quite up to the standards of the home computer but it is a connection to the outside world while i'm up here in the woods.
jeff and i have been here a couple of days and the work on the foundation is proceeding, albeit slowly...digging in this rocky (rocky? hell, it's almost sloid rocks!) soil is a slow process.
will try to update from time to time but with no electric here, i have to recharge the laptop battery from the car.
well, it's another sunny day and i have to get to work...
