Wayne - how about your latest update on your house and the move?

Assume you have now settled in (hopefully) which has why it has been quiet?

Kevin, thanks for asking. Sounds like you had a nice vacation.

There was the time spend getting the condo down in Glendale ready for sale and dealing with that. That went fairly well.

Then just as that was getting wrapped up, as I put in the 'For the Cats' thread China Whitecat disappeared. Been almost a month now so finally crawling out of the depression of that and starting to get back to work on things. Still haven't felt like doing any modeling and have been pretty uncommunicative.

Canada, can we send your weather back.

Another upgrade needed is going to be more (or some) insulation added. Knew from the inspection that attic was minimum required, so was going to need more. Not sure there is any in the walls which is not uncommon in older houses in central and south Arizona. After the weather the last couple of days need it, freezing my tail off. Will help in the summer also and overall utility bills. Also need to decide in next month if I want to add some type of central air/heating to the place. Been looking at the newer "split systems" type that doesn't need ductwork put in.

Wayne, So sorry to hear about the loss of your China White kitty. My Hayduke did a disappearing act when we first moved to Asheville. Fortunately for both of us he came back after three days.

Your snow pics reminds me of our December storm when we had a tree broken down in the backyard. Very pretty to look at but way too dangerous to leave alone. It missed our back porch by a few feet and snagged on an adjoining tree. Got a new 18 inch chainsaw and did a lot of careful prep work with a pole saw to get it ready to fell. It was quite an adventure even so to get it all cleaned up. With plenty of Bradford Pear and Leyland Cypress trees on our property, I'll get lots of use out of all three of my chainsaws.

Curt

Thanks Curt. Its been around 6 weeks so figure chances of him showing up are pretty slim now.

We didn't get that much snow and the biggest tree is a pretty solid looking pecan tree on the other side of the fence line and its downhill from me. So hope I won't have to deal with any of that.
