No, that was for a kit you build yourself.
Great Googly-moogly!! If he spent that much, it's no wonder he's kept me clueless of the 'infernal affairs' concerning my pizza oven. He knows I would go off the deep end.

:)

If I were you, I'd do some research locally, at restaurant supply places maybe? and see if you can find a less-expensive option. Check brick manufacturers in your area for plans and designs, or visit your local home improvement store for ideas. There's GOT to be a less expensive version available for a kit you build on your own.

Good luck.

I'll ask him when he gets home from work - he may not want to answer me.

just reading this....

.... The Israeli far-right could be correct about the “eternal” nature of hostility to Israel. If they are, though, then Israel is doomed. Even the most heavily-armed Jewish state won’t be able to hold out against the determined opposition of the entire Arab and Muslim world. Israel’s survival is premised on the notion that under some set of circumstances, the Muslim world will accommodate itself to the existence of the Jewish state. That is, it is premised, ultimately, on the notion that everybody can be motivated by self-interest.

If that is the case, the only question is when it will become clear to both sides that self-interest dictates a mutually-agreeable solution. Unfortunately, the history of the conflict to date suggests that this will only happen when the Palestinians have enough to lose from initiating conflict that peace is preferable to continuing to fight, and Israelis have retreated to the point where they truly have nothing else they can concede without losing their state – when all the bluffs and phony red lines are past.

It would be nice if we could get there without years of additional violence, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

Titus had not always been called Titus but at almost the same moment he’d had his big idea he realized he would need new language to describe what it meant. Prior to that time there had been no word in Ant for,“management, division of labor, hierarchy,” those sorts of concepts just sprang up from nothing in Titus’ mind. Simultaneously he realized that “ANT 165,898,331” was no suitable name for an ant “in charge of things” and he began to cast about for something more… magisterial. More… something. The concept of “More,” would, in time, prove his undoing but how was he to know this? Prior to this he’d known… nothing. Afterwards… he’d known… something.

For their part the other ants reacted to Titus’“rule” the way they reacted to everything: with quiet resignation, the ant equivalent of a shrug.“Shrug,” Titus thought.“Yes, that’s a good word for that sort of helpless, aimless movement an ant makes with it’s front legs when it doesn’t understand it’s about to get screwed.”

We talking stimilus? 25 tax cuts in there -

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...

Grand total: 25.

In all, tax cuts amounted to about a third of the cost of the $862 billion stimulus over the next decade. The biggest ticket tax cut was the first one on the list, the Making Work Pay tax cut that is expected to cost the government about $116 billion over two years. Interestingly, the White House did not include the Alternative Minimum Tax patch, which has been extended annually for years. But that accounted for another $70 billion for one year. Together, those two items account for the lion's share of the tax cuts in the stimulus.

Which leads us to the question of whether all of these 25 qualify as tax cuts?

"In a way this reminds me of Clinton's 'It depends on what your meaning of is is' comments," said Rosanne Altshuler, director of the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. "It depends on what you mean by tax cuts."

"These are all provisions that cut your taxes," she said, "but most of them are temporary," designed to stimulate a floundering economy.

Each of the tax provisions in the stimulus could have been broken into separate bills, said Bob Williams, also of the Tax Policy Center, and on their own could have rightly been billed as separate tax cuts.

"They packed an awful lot into that bill," Williams said. "I think it's fair to say that various tax provisions in the stimulus could be considered tax cuts. I don't think that's being deceptive."

We agree.

From the (totally not liberal) Investor’s Business Daily:

Believe it or not, the federal deficit has fallen faster over the past three years than it has in any such stretch since demobilization from World War II.

[...]

From fiscal 2009 to fiscal 2012, the deficit shrank 3.1 percentage points, from 10.1% to 7.0% of GDP.

That’s just a bit faster than the 3.0 percentage point deficit improvement from 1995 to ’98, but at that point, the economy had everything going for it.

Other occasions when the federal deficit contracted by much more than 1 percentage point a year have coincided with recession. Some examples include 1937, 1960 and 1969.

Listen closely… that PBTPBTPBT! balloon-deflating sound you hear is another right-wing myth about the president dying at the hands of mathematical reality.
