End of Adrian
I recently moved all hosted services out of my basement and into the cloud. Adrian has been disconnected and will shortly be powered down for the last time. There should be little interruption in service.
Hyland Lake Kayaking
Been here before, but it's a good lake.
Dan gave me a PowerEdge 2970 to replace the ailing PowerEdge 1850 that this blog, and all my other sites and services, have been running on. The only stipulation is that I name it "Adrian", in memory of his dog.
So it is written, so it is done.
There being no proper electrical service to the old garage, we had to dig a trench for the new fat copper.
And then the concrete crew returned and poured the rest of the concrete: the apron and the sidewalk.
Garage Roofing & Siding
The roofers and siders have begun their work.
Kayaking Saint Croix
I went camping with my brother and his girlfriend, and we took our boats down the super-high Saint Croix.
Over the span of three days the framing, trusses and sheeting all went up.
Garage Foundation Poured
You can't just build a new garage on top of dirt and sand. You've got to get some guys with a cement truck to pour a thick layer of cement and aggregate on the ground first.
In order to make room for the new garage palace I had to have the old structures and foundation delicately removed. This man and his Bobcat knocked everything down and hauled it away in half a day.
Kayaking Chippewa River
My brother, and a few of his friends built fancy cedar strip canoes this summer. This was their inaugural journey.
Kayaking Crane Island
One hundred and twenty-seven years ago Ezra Fitch Pabody wrote a daily journal about his activities in and around Minneapolis and Lake Minnetonka. I took my little boat out to that lake to paddle the very same waters as Ezra did those many decades ago.
Easy Soy Yogurt
I used to buy soy yogurt out of the refrigerator cases at the local coops until WholeSoy botched up their production process which resulted in a soy yogurt shortage all over everywhere. So I decided to try making my own. It turned out to be so easy, I'll never buy it off the shelf again.
