|Projects In Action 2008|
Political Aspirations: City Council run...dismal failure...lost in the primary. Looking for a way to the Big Chair...Mayoral Race 2009. Actually, I'll make another run at City Council.
Garage Door Scoreboard: A huge success! All set with the scoreboard...updated every Tuesday morning. Need to make bigger water proof magnets.
Vineyard: Chose a knob just behind my long back wall. Cleared it of Teri's B-day weekend. Cut the bigger trees then rented a brush mower...what a friggen' machine. Then rented a huge (6" capacity, tow behind) chipper from Home Depot, chipped all the cut trees plus three bundles from the road clearing. Bought 20 9' RR ties for the vineyard walls. Started laying out ties...finish during the week. Weed barrier lined. Fence for deer and Maya is going up (gate set for hill access).
The vineyard is now complete! Twenty vines (10 Frontenac & 10 LaCrosse). Each vine is fitted with a drip of 1 gal per hour. The entire vineyard is covered with 3 inches mulch. The trellis system is very sturdy and looks like it will hold for a few years. See the pics.
Painting: All painting is complete, for the time being. Next will be the big room...ugh! May do another coat in the master bath
Finishing Basement: Always a work in progress...need to finish framing then call Sergio for sheetrock.
Toy Road and Parking: Need to get the concrete poured...maybe in the Spring 2008. Not sure on this...Ralph Marchant is another option...says he can get it done by hand laying etc.
Waterfall: Gathering rocks to build it, right in front of office window.
