Guess you'll just have to find yourself a mysterious Russian spy to help you with that one.


Do you have any secret entrances in your Hobbit House? You know the sort - where you flip up a porthole window and slide down a glass tube to the bottom of your pond, landing in the submarine/landing craft that you keep down there for emergencies.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Google translate your way through your phone lol, might be difficult but unless you want to take it to your phone company I don't know any other way

And I'm mentally sending well wishes to your friend!!! I can't believe he had such a horrible accident! Poor guy, I hope he recovers well and is in good hands while doing so

I used to work for a Japanese equipment manufacturer. Occasionally the displays would be accidentally switched to Japanese so we had to get them to send us a procedure with the Japanese characters that we had to select to get it back to English. But of a pain but also amusing.

I think this would be a great TV show! It could replace duck dynasty- and honey boo boo, and any of the other stupid fake redneck shows out there!

Banker A is well, an A.

Oh, and another thing you could be to make your TV show, while playing on a previous post- you could also be a normal person with one catch: you make meth as a 'side thing' haha lol!

Keep posting!

No, I don't like plaid-- oh, you think that's weird because I am a "farmer", and farmers wear plaid-- well if you looked at my little dirt patch I call a garden, you would think twice

So, a quick update...

We decided to use the slab itself as our floor, so yesterday and today a pile of guys came by to grind, polish, stain, seal and wax it. Hopefully tomorrow will be their last day, as nobody can go into the house until they are done.

We are also having our front door made by a local artisan, who also happens to be blind. The door is about 3 inches thick, and has a massive 50 pound, 20 inch across porthole in it. Here is a picture of the half-finished door, along with the guy who is making it and his little three-legged dog, Ruthie. It will be painted scarlet red on the outside, and kept oiled mahogany on the inside. The door, that is, not the artisan. We are going to use a huge 15" bronze boat cleat for a door handle...

Our friend who broke his back is doing very well, and has been by a few times just to say hi. All the other people who were helping have been called back to their real jobs, so it's just the two of us.... Sob!!

So your slab/floor is concrete?

I have seen a lot of fabulously stylish concrete floors - very nice indeed.

That door looks amazing
My house is feeling very dull and boring after seeing what you're doing there
