Just waiting for the final quote from the company putting up a 5'9" retaining wall.(House going up 8 feet to get out of flood plain). The builder is going back to the engineer and finding out WHY he thinks we need a 7 foot wide footing under a brick wall going up 5ft-9inch.(118ft on one side & 131 on the other)They will. Nice little slice of heaven!
Good luck with the interview.I used up the last of my charcoal last night (thanks for the lamest sale ever on charcoal this Memorial Day, Lowes!). Ran to Costco to grab a couple twin packs of the Kingsford Professional and will give that a shot with tonight's dinner. 8th and supposedly final interview for a job I'm pursuing first thing this morning.
Thanks! It went well. Hope to hear something by early next week. Should be interesting starting a new job during this time. Right now, office is open, but no intentions of making people come in for probably the rest of the summer. They are continuing to do everything remote.Good luck with the interview.
How did it come out? I was expecting a pic or two. This months Consumer reports listed the Genesis as their favorite pick for gas grills.Makeover day for my Weber Genesis. A very deep cleaning, along with new stainless steel heat deflectors, burners and Flavorizer bars. I've neglected it a bit and haven't used it in over a year. Looking forward to hitting the easy button on some upcoming cooks.

I could use a day on the water. I miss having a boat.Got the sailboat off the hard, and into the water. The machines they use to cart these boats around and sling them into the water are amazing. Motored for a short trip down the river into the big lake, and even a bit of a sail (although the winds were very light). I got way too much sun, though!
I was lucky. Strictly routine maintenance was all I ever had to do. Did have to replace the axle on the trailer though. Fortunately, my buddy that I owned it with is mechanically inclined and we were able to do it ourselves.I miss a day every now and then on the water, but I don't miss the boat and motor maintenance at all, or the cost!
Havn't tried it yet, but google up hommade charcoal. Looks like it might not be too hard to cook up a batch. Might have to do it a bit different in a high population area, but bet it could still be done. Think I am going to talk the soninlaw into making some, take a lot of the work out of it for me. Like the firewood, go down and pick up a trailer load. Split and ready to burn. Only cost me a splitter and I don't have to run it half the time.

I like the way you tried to match the grain when butting the sheets.I finished framing the wine making area and starting paneling. Chose a 5mm underlayment based on cost, material being an actual plywood not composite and the look. It seems to be going up well and feels pretty sturdy considering it's only about 3/16" thick. Used liquid Nails Panel glue and a pneumatic brad gun. Maybe another 3 or 4 days and then the ceiling.
