So is 150 board feet of cherry. Even with a commercial discount.

At least the jobs are starting to roll in. Starting a bed and nightstand, and bidding other projects that should keep me busy for the next 3 months. I can't believe what I can get away with charging here.

I can't. Master craftsmen are not quite plentiful west of Appalachia.

Now if all of these peripheral expenses would just go away and leave me alone: new tires, plane tix for the son for Christmas, new tires for the rope gun, replacement machinery for what didn't make the cross country trip, loose wimmen. *

I need to run an add in the paper to get more furniture jobs, most of the leads are cabinets.

The last one is actually my wife, but her prices have gone up too.

So, I have decided to boycott my personal stalkerbook page, too much crapola. I would have suspended it outright but then I couldn't post in either of my work related pages. I'm hoping to update the woodworking page soon with pics of the bed in progress.

Snowing now in Boulder. 6-9" expected.

I prefer the no snow, rock climbing weather, may have to find an ice pardner, pardner.


ice, not for me. i almost froze my fingers off being a belay slave for a rockclimbing partner.

just get out the snowshoes or skis

Epic drive home.

The road up the mountains to our place was closed for an accident, and the round-about back way is still closed from the floods. The only other way up is "Winding Trail Road" which is a steep, curvy one Lane road through a gated community posted No Tresspassing. Karol drove it once in the daylight and dry conditions when our road was closed, and vowed to not do it again because of the hairpin turns, steep drop offs, and lack of guardrails. I had to do it.

Fortunately I had the new sneakers on the Tundra, slipped it into 4WD, and crept up the 10 miles through 4" of untracked powpow. It was dark and the headlights wouldn't show past the falling flakes, so I have no idea how stupid this might have been, but I got home to a big batch of homemade chili.

Prospects are not good for getting down tomorrow, there are severe weather advisories for heavy snow and high winds through Wednesday night. At least I brought home some much needed dog food.

That is awl.


ugh winter mtn. driving is the worst. i'm thankful that the ski hill i work at is 10 minutes from my house and the worst street is the one i live on. i just park at the bottom and walk up to the house.

we were pretty gripped driving back to wash. last weekend. no ploughs had been out. lots of car surfing just south of the border

So I have this long-term project to document flamenco. Was going for a while to flamenco classes to draw the dancers sat mornings. stopped because I needed to add english classes sat mornings, but I still kept in touch with the owner of the school and have been attending various events. love the scene, just could never afford to take classes myself, or take the time off teaching to continue practicing drawing.

went to a "talent show" that they have every year, which is basically just a christmas party with some various people who are also on the periphery of the school mixing with the teachers and students. my second year going and my portuguese this time allowed me to participate a lot more.

turns out I won a year's worth of free classes starting in 2014. The Lady is already hoping we can dance sevillanas at our wedding. not sure where I'm going to find time, but I feel this is a good winner.

sevillanas isn't exactly flamenco, but it can be as even though it's supposedly older than flamenco sevillanas was greatly influenced by flamenco about 200 years ago. I'm kind of sort of looking forward to it.

here's a reasonable video of it (better as a group starting at the 1min mark): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HC3GGwvtH2I

however, it's a group dance, but this one is damn cool (lady dancing alone with mirrors): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DWlngNFIdY
You have been serious for a while, but you've made a decsion?

Definitely going to take the lessons, so yeah. But there are a couple of things in the works that may be fitting quite nicely into the business plan, unexpectedly so, but so regardless. We'll see what happens the next two years.

so here's my rant of the day:

i took two prints into a framing store over a month again. i told the female store owner that i needed the prints the beginning of december to take back to canada. a side note, both prints gifts from friends. anyhow, went into the store today to pick up the prints. i had not been contacted by the store, but i assumed they were done. the woman was on the phone and actually went in the back room to FINISH the personal call, without acknowledging me.


she got off the phone and i asked her for the prints. she acted like a deer in the headlights and then gave me the "i've been so busy speech including details of her sick mother, time getting away, etc". good christ, it's been over a bloody month. it totally screws me around because i'm not around to pick up the prints and it's a pita for the hubby to try and get them because of his work schedule. she said they would be done next week. hopefully, she will come through and stay open for the prints to be picked up.


while she ranted, i think she expected me to say don't worry or it's okay......which i didn't!! should i have said something like that. I usually reserve that for when i mean it. like this am, i was supposed to have a massage, and the masseuse calls me and said he's at the urgent care clinic with his daughter who had strep throat. in that case it was okay, because he called, offered up different appts and it was an emergency. this woman had a lot of time and she didn't call me.

My advice, do some research on each company and make a proposal fully admitting that you know it's out of the blue. Tell them what you can do, why it can help them, and why you're focusing on them (and being honest by saying you like what they stand for helps a lot). Send it out to about 50 different companies that are like that (better if they have work from home opportunities) and see what happens.

That's what I did and suddenly got a bunch of opportunities. Of course, the man upstairs was probably shaking his head and figuring out how to help this poor sap who keep fucking everything up, so maybe this only works for me. Pirate

I'm with you. No need to apologize. I would have asked for the prints back to be honest and just sucked up to the idea that they wouldn't be ready in time.

i know, i should have taken the prints back right then and there. ugh. further update, she calls me while we are driving out of town at about 5pm and says the prints are done. too late for me to pick them up. bruce will have to get them on monday. i think she totally fucked up and gave me the song and dance story about family issues, thinking she could evoke sympathy out of me..... she doesn't know me.

I would concur that job hunting is the suck.
Been quite the relief to not have that burden. But if its all going away, now is the time to start. Since you're not yet let go, you can start to focus on jobs/areas/things of interest.
Good luck.
