Back from the brink it does appear. I have a mess of stuff to update you on. And I also got some spankin’ new farm pix for you to gawk at.

Note the rustic look in above photo. The old farm house was in it’s death throws with it’s electricity and wireing, even worse the the big surge a few weeks earlier. We enlisted the one of the best electritions in the area, just in time as it really began going to pot. No good light to see to shave, etc.

Changing a breaker was beyond what was needed it turns out. A few decades of incompitent wireing and most of our outlets needing replaced. This computer even stopped working, turns out just not enough current was going to it.. too many room going onto one breaker didn’t help things either. Mind you our stress was at full tilt.

The man who worked on the house, last week, was on “Rockstar” of a electritian. He was confident “Don’t worry we’re gonna figure it out”. He works with his wife, and older couple well into their 50’s. Replacing the faulty light fixture in the main dining room during a tornado warning, with the braker is still HOT, isn’t “Rockstar” status, then I don’t know, what is? He then rushes out during that and the flood, and get washed away, figuring he could run to town to get a part at Lows.

We’re lucking to be on high ground, the floods here in Tennessee, this weekend are ledgendary. I think a few roads may still be out.

I heard that the Cumberland river levy broke and flooded the Grand Ol Opery Hotel, in Nashville, even. A friend let a flood victem stay at her house, while she is working in Iraq.

During all of this I recived my own donation, in the form of a second work computer, from my “High Buddies” partner Jason Mainella, of Spliff Tube and Xsessive Designs out of Montral, CA. new Wacom Bamboo tablet to boot and chalk full of CS4 Adobe software.I’ll chalk it up to good Karma, from when I donated a friend a extra PC, last year. I’m very behind in projects, never mind the web comic strip, this so helps me out.

Thanks to who all called me up to check on me during my “Technology Sabatical”. I’ll post the sketches I made to keep myself sane during all of this ordeal.

Oh, other good news I learned today is the return of Madhouse Radio Forums! is MH Live to far behind? Getting my high speed is next on list.. right after a hair cut.

In case you don’t know I live on a antique farm.. and on the occasion passers by will stop and take pictures or something of the house or barns or the fields.. but I can’t recall this ever happening.


The girls from a local college her passing by our little highway here on her way to Nashville noticed our place and brought her model and knocked and asked was it ok to take photos?
