According to Stephen Lawson at PC World , Cisco Systems plans to make remote work as simple as plugging a router into a broadband connection and starting up a PC. He goes on: "Cisco Virtual Office combines a variety of existing products with management software that hides the complexity of a VPN (virtual private network) and other technologies. Remote employees with no technology training can use CVO to make their home setups work just like a regular office."

This is a very belated followup to the Garconnière postings earlier in the year but it's well worth the wait. As regular readers will remember, we were focusing on the Garconnière at Houmas House in Darrow, Louisiana, with exclusive new photos by Bill Alger from Houmas. Here is the second garconierre on the property, built at roughly the same time as the other in the mid-1800s, but which was being used as a garden tool shed until the entire property was bought in 2003. This one has very wisely been turned into a bar and I must say looks just the ticket.

Elspeth Thompson isn't the only one with a remarkable railway carriage build in her garden. Here is Brian Angus' railway carriage - with relaxation area - in Ewell, Surrey. Here's what he says about it: "My neighbour had two small sheds but still couldn't get his car in the garage. The idea was to use walls from the existing sheds to create a larger square - so we'd only have to buy materials for the larger floor and roof. Dave wanted something long and thin instead, to suit the space so I thought of a railway carriage. "The roof length is 36' the deck area 4' and the cabin area 31' - allows for 6" overhang. The roof is 6mm ply - just thin enough to bend, just strong enough for the job. We found this ply bends far more easily when run lengthways so we had to join the sheets in pairs. We added 6" strips of thicker ply along the edges a) because we'd made the cabin slightly too wide, b) because it formed a firmer edge for the roof felt." Via readersheds.co.uk

Better to store you with, my dear Remodelista has a great writeup of the options out there for storing kitchen utensils on open rail systems. Rail systems are a good alternative to storing utensils and cookware either on the counter or taking up cabinet and drawer space. If there is a blank wall available that is away [...]
