Well timed bike issues on grand before chicago.

I refused to read this as a freshman in high school.  My teacher wrote on the back of the shitty essay I turned in how the book brought up themes of the settlers’ connection the landscape, among others.  I took this as confirmation of how stale and unreadable the book was. Almost 20 years later, thanks to free ibooks, i’ll admit she was right.  The description of the rural vernacular landscape was compelling and the hearty lesson in blending the new and old ways was a real treat. Plus there’s sex and murder towards the end - if onlyI could go back and do it over again…  Reading O Pioneers would top my agenda.

I covet this place.  But i’m sure other people out there do too and for more “normal” reasons, by which I mean, to make lots of money. I guess i’m curious how this site nad the countless others like this turns from a vacant site into a dunkin donuts or skyscraper or whatever.  It appears it takes roughly $850000 in this case to get the ball rolling.   more to follow.

Rain Barrel.

Had grand plans for a comeback post, but well…

So I installed a rain barrel. It’s 55 gallons and I figured it would take a summers worth of rain to fill it up. Nope.  About an hour of light rain filled it to the brim and then some.   The gutter had been going directly into the sewer pipe, so if you do the math, that was 50 gal per hour, times the amount of rain in the last 100 years - okay 50 years, directly into the sewer. (times all the houses in the city)
