Checking In

I'm still out and about, but the blog must go on.

Ok, there's nothing requiring a blog and there's nothing that says it must go on. I just wrote that out of a sense of the dramatic.

I'm on a salad binge at the moment, but it's not what you think. I'm not on a vegetarian bender because I love animals (who are competition for my food). I'm a vegetarian because I hate plants.

Tomorrow, back to the ribeye.

Kindle allows me to download books to occupy down-time and that's what I do. I just downloaded, "Children of Time" a science fiction book by Adrian Tchaikovsky. I don't know whether the book will be any good or not. You sort of throw the spaghetti against the wall with books, don't you? Unless it's something by Jim Curtis or one of the greats, you take your chances.

There are things moving at the White Wolf Mine. The clouds (above left) herald the labor and the improvements on the property. This is a photo from earlier in the week (below). The masons are hard at work laying block retaining walls to fortify the place. Yes, I understand that a .50 BMG will punch through that as if it doesn't exist. But we all have to live within budgets. The steel roof and the structural steel won't make the place EMP proof, but it will help - for those of you who are concerned for my welfare. I would have turned my office into a Faraday Cage with Tempest approved gear (a SCIF) but there's not much secret that needs to be hidden from snoopers.

The photo (left) shows the steel machine chewing up a path for the second driveway (drive-through garage). Do I need 2 driveways? No, but I thought that it would be cool.

The weather shows clear, no precipitation for the next 14 days with highs in the 50's. At this rate, the team will go to town on construction.
