The leaks are from a couple of small cracks in basement floor in laundry room (painted concrete) and from along the edge of floor along walls in rest of basement. We caught it early so we found all the places where the leaks start.

many brands are good....I'd explain to the person there what you are trying to do. many of them are "brush on" stuff, and will work even when wet...

I wonder where we lost that feeling.

Some lucky chaps on a dusty sea high up in the sky watching a blue marble rising above the horizon. If you look very close you may see the tiny ocean of gasses where at the bottom we think of as home.

The unity, the urge to cooperate instead of separate.

I agree doing everything together is a drag, splitting hairs until everyone agreesd with the allowed ingredients for shoe paste. Whatever, as long as we are squirreling about the colours of road signs we can all live along.

I'm drrrringin gwith you, MDF! **hic **
Spent the day knee deep in trash. Garbage. MOOP. No... moop is too nice for it. Stinky garbage!

Started at 9, got home at 5; half-hour shower to get the stench off my outside, beer to cleanse the inside.

This was a major campaign with Citizens Caring 4 Clearlake -- an informal volunteer mooping group.
Today we had two dozen helpers from AmeriCorps! So we put them to work picking up litter along Clearlake's primary streets.
Lunch was donated by a local pizzeria.
Then, in the afternoon, we descended on a condemned mobile home and removed a ton or so of garbage strewn around it. (Absentee slum-lord.)

My task was to haul the Stuff to our dumpster. We gonna need a bigger dumpster!

I'm impressed with the AmeriCorps youngsters. They tore into The Task At Hand with gusto.

Report ends.

HI gang!
good on ya Elliot!
Hi MDF
Great bar BVB!!
Looks like a series of storms heading this way again, starting tomorrow. They are not calling for the flooding like last time. but things are so saturated, I'd see more land slides and tress down. One little town near hear is isolated, with only a small dirt road for access.
Luckily I still have a couple of escape vehicles:Image

Gorgeous Bar! Nice view out the door. And you even have the perspective correct on the sign.

Thanks for the compliments, I get a kick out of monkeying around with photoshop, especially when it's for fun instead of work.

I had read somewhere that El Pulpo might be retiring, and had my fingers crossed hoping to hear that something new was in the works! Great news! Woohoo!

..and yg, it is always a hoot to see pictures of your fleet!

Mmmm, flaming rum. I need some in my coffee.

Why did I have to come back to Utah? It is freezing, and the air is so think you can chew it. While I prefer Kona to Maui, damn, I want to go back.

great BVB... I wondered what El Pulpo did in the offseason.

looked out late this morning, and noted that much of the snow was gone... due to rain. egh. more snow due, and I'm at peace with that. It's nice to look at.

A nice warm bar is the place to be.

Mmmmm still got that new bar smell on page 2... :D

Personally speaking 2017 has been all kinds of busy and exciting so far. Aside from all the virtual world stuff, it looks like Pandorra and I will be moving really soon. Our lease is up soon, and even though for the first time we weren't going to face a big rent increase, as we weighed all our options the best route to take was to move down to the south bay. We both love city life, but the place we found is pretty ideal for us, saves us a couple bucks, and most importantly significantly reduces her daily commute. As an added bonus we'll also have a garage to be able to work on mad science art projects. The bittersweet part is that since we're moving a lot sooner, we're going to have to miss the trip this weekend.

It also means I've got to table some of the stuff I've been working on behind the scenes for the next ePlaya update, but hopefully that will be back on track soon enough.

Trilo, I will be refunding your room since that isn't fixed until Friday. I will attempt to find somebody to take your spot. We occasionally find a vulture looking to sweep in for some "reasonable" amount (couple hundred bucks maybe plus room). Either way, come Monday at least $64 will be in the mail.
