Ow! Again and A Cool TV Show [Jun. 20th, 2009|12:05 pm]

I woke up at 5 am with another bad headache. I went straight to Imitrex and Zofran, since it had worked yesterday, put a hot pack on my head and went back to sleep. I woke up still hurting at about 9.

I turned the TV on and discovered three really cool shows on PBS about "Making," the new name for home hobby activities. It hurt my head to watch the screen, but I left the TV on and listened while I drifted in and out of sleep. It was really interesting. The shows covered how to make a system that uses a potato gun, a homemade cutter and a deep fat fryer to make french fries; how to make an automatic cat feeder from an old VCR, homemade gears and pulleys; and how to make a kite camera. There was also a segment on a group of people who transform old bikes into weird, barely functional bikes. The shows are available online here. I think you all might like them.

On the moving-out-to-the-land front, I've raised what I think will be the last round of money for the move. With this money, I should be able to pay off all the folks I owe and get power to the trailer. If there's enough money left, I'll buy a storage building. If not, that will have to wait, so I'll rent a storage unit for now.

Have you considered getting a shipping container (i.e. a railroad box car) as a storage unit? A friend told me they're only about $1250, delivered. They're 8' x 20'.
