I SURVIVED!

It was beautiful when we were in the mountains and snowed the day we left. Your weather is weird.

Nice. Right now we're wall to wall, but I'm not sure how well our camping plans will pan out (we're Southerners and it's cold there). I'll hit you up if we get pushed to Denver early.

Going to Devner at the end of the week for 11 days, then coming back and starting IVF. It'll be a nice break before the real shit starts.

Also, at some point on hubski I doubted kleinbl00 on how expensive children were. Looking at the IVF charges and how that's just for a pre-kid, I'll eat my humble pie.

Also, the greenhouse is on hold - looking at the planned area in the summer, it's completely shaded in by the now leafy trees. I'm considering fixing up our shed as a new project instead.

If you like History and Prose, the Memory Palace fits neatly in the middle of that venn diagram.

If you liked Serial, try S-Town. It's like a modern day Faulkner novel, but a documentary podcast.

I will never not watch this.

So good. I'll take this into account, but I think the greenhouse got back burnered. We found a squirrel's nest in our shed and a ton of holes chewed through the eves. That'll probably take precedence.

I have a VR headset and I 100% think it's the future of consuming certain types of digital content. I also think there will be VR drugs that use light and sound to stimulate the brains of users and create super addicting experiences for a few.

But some of this conversation feels a lot like the second life conversation, especially things like VR Chat. It's neat, but it just isn't "there" yet.

Oh man, now I love books. That enthusiasm is infectious!

Just reading through it, I was thinking about a big book we have that's the complete genealogy of our family going back to the 1600s. It's in fine shape now, but it's definitely something I would pay to have nicely and artistically bound, because I want it to last generations.

My gut says, if you could find a clean way to put Ancestry reports in a book, you would have a real business.

oh yeah, I'm building it because we just got new windows and those are the old ones they took out. 100% free.

I am, however, trying to figure out the roof, which I'll have to buy, and this site looks great for that. I really want the steep side that face the sun to be able to lift for air flow, but that might be too much for this project.

This is super neat and it's interesting to hear about the component parts. Maybe I missed this, but why bookbinding at all?

There's that well off to the left (not pictured) the cap of which isn't quite flush with the foundation. I think I need to raise the whole thing to account for that height difference, so I figured I would add a floor. But I could probably accomplish the same thing with a ramp. Then I could fill the dirt in with rocks and make a primitive french drain.
