agree - unlike new construction - rehab takes much more time. Getting rid of the bad and rotted then the ingenuity involved in replacing things that no longer fit (2 x 4) which is now (3 3/4 by 1 1/2) it's totally time consuming. And those quickie fix its may look good for the camera, but I bet they're tacky in real time

It seems to be Tom Papass against the world on 8. Although, much to my surprise, cranky Tom answered Mia's inquiry on the "name three things" game "what do you do when your feeling sad" and (comment later removed) he said call his mother and (paraphrasing) try to help shelter animals find a "forever home"
Kind of noble. Lets just say, I don't get it - where is all this other putrid stuff coming from?
ok
So from the Rose of Tralee visual files, I bring you the remnants of what Grimms Fairy tale's are made of. Currently in National Geographic magazine, this is a documented photo collection of a man who went in search of celebrations that predated Christ and Christianity in Europe. Celebrations of the seasons that blended and now coincide with Christian today. Think Easter bunny.
Make sure you go through the 19 photos at the top of the page. This is extraordinary stuff my friends

Thank you, Rose. I really enjoyed this and the photos. I noticed most of the costumes had horns, or antlers. Or racks, as we call them on our deer. I guess they were all males!

Having built a house (years ago) the most difficult room is the kitchen. All that cabinetry, plumbing, gas lines, special outlets, etc.
I used to have a thing about painting my kitchen cabinets. Loved to do it. Then, it wasn't fashionable to have them painted. Everything had to be stained. Now we're back to paint. And now, I don't really care, as long as I can figure out how reach the top shelf without climbing a ladder.

Off topic.
I was in your neck of the woods last night. Traveled up to Pasadena
to attend the Social Daunce Irregulars Grand Victorian Ball.
it was a hoot. Spent the night at a friend's and got home before
south bound traffic set in.
You should have stuck around and visited Heritage Square. It might have been Victorian overkill but fun.

Right before they were moved there from Bunker Hill etc, my father, a nut for all things Victorian, would drag us on Sunday drives to visit them. He took a bunch of black and white photos when they were in states of decay. I should go back and compare them to the photos on Carroll street. Some may be match ups. Great place to walk around.

Did you look at them in full screen mode? I'm going with #6. I THINK he's representing a bear, but he kind of looks like an alien too.

Mine were stained when I moved in. Defiantly a victim of it's 50's atomic ranch period. Plain Janes without any kind of trim. Tile counters in that weird speckled pinkish flesh color and capped with maroon edging. I made it work - but it was work. Combining vintage and modern. The cabinets are white now and shall remain so. I like a white, bright, lit kitchen

Wow!
Sad to hear about Artgal.
She was so looking forward to going home this week.
Life is short.
Enjoy it.

Hello everyone. I'm finally home but a bit later than expected due to weather delays.

I was so sorry and sad to hear the news about ArtGal. She'd fought so hard and had come through so much when I was last here... Anyway, my most sincere condolences to her family and I wish them lots of love, peace and light.

As to the rest of this place (other than the diner and a few other threads).....it's just sick. Nothing more to say, really.

Hi Hegel~
I was getting ready to post, "Where's Hegel"!?
I'm glad you're back.

I'm so sad about Artgal. I thought she was getting better...she was supposed to be going home this week. I still can't believe it.

I know!!!! it all looked like rainbows and unicorns, then she just slipped away. And everything feels weird now. I can take trolling - but this? It's creeping me out.

how many (_________s) are there? I've counted one from Ohio, from San Jose and from Idaho.

Thanks, Mia:) I was off visiting family. It was a nice break but I could have done without the delay getting home.

Yes, it's very sad news about AG. I'm just trying to wrap my head around it....
