I called our HVAC guy this morning to see if he was starting on our house next week like he's scheduled to; he apparently fell off a ladder and is going to have surgery for a ruptured disk. He won't be doing any work til next month. So I've got to call around for another HVAC guy... I'm out to the site tonight for the weekend; Sarah and the boys might join me for some (or all) of it. Working

I have been limiting this blog to house-related posts. And this only barely qualifies as house-related. Left my wallet in my unlocked car last night after I got home from WV, and somebody took it. So I'm dealing with canceling all my cards this morning. I thought I'd probably just left it in WV until I saw this activity on my debit card (for our LostRiverModern operating account) this morning

I got to the house this morning to find: -electric hooked up; -roofers on my roof; and -DSL guy waiting for me. So I'm posting this from our bedroom floor! Ipe, cedar and drywall should be here any second. Only problems so far: when I turned the water valve on, I found out (when water sprayed all over the bathroom) that the plumbers missed a compression fitting on one of the pex runs. So I

The Atlantic City Boardwalk is made out of ipe (so is the bike path on the Brooklyn Bridge). It's twenty or thirty years old now - no splinters, no rotting, a nice silver patina. Pretty good advertisement for the durability of ipe. One of the reasons is its density; it just doesn't allow water to penetrate it. And weight, as we all learned in seventh grade, is a function of density. So our
