Been doing all kinds of things Except working on the bunker. Have repairs to make to two rentals, one is really trashed but I have a good future tenent that will move in when it's habital again and is helping on the repairs in exchange for a free months rent. Getting a couple months worth of dental work on top of that and mouth pain I cannot deal with.

I'd rather shoot a nail in my leg with the nail gun than visit the dentist...

New bill was just passed that allows cable companies to encrypt the basic channels, no more Clear QAM, which means if they do it you will need a cable box for every TV in your home, so I scored a Homerun, three tuner network device that takes an M Card at three dollars a month verse's eleven a box a month.

Homerun three tuner network device I mean. Bad pun I know.

Any computer in the house can watch live TV or record to a NAS RAID5 I had laying around, plus three tuner cards in three computers doing the same thing but just on the channels up to eighty.

I don't actually watch TV except Wheel of Fortune and Lawrence Welk reruns with the wife...

It's the OCD in me.

Did all kinds of things since last we spoke just can't remember what they are LOL.

I'll be glad when this year is over, so many fires still need put out...

Merry Christmas RT!

I've got two rentals empty needing minor repairs on one and major on the other...

I've been posting away at Face Book, https://www.facebook.com/Senselesss#!/Senselesss but I'm gonna make a concerted effort to ressurect this place!

Dunno why I suddenly wondered to FB, probably cause it was a way to track down High School friends.

Almost got to be on DoomDays Preppers LOL. Had no idea of the show or how far it was out there so sort of glad it fell through even though they had contacted me, not vice versa.

They actually had someone some managed to get his thumb in front of the barrel and shoot it off. Someone like that really shouldn't be allowed to own a pistol if not being stupid was a requirement. I can't imagine being that dumb handling a firearm with his children around.

The show seems to be slanted into focusing on the ones that are really out there prepping for a Zombie Appocolipse hahhahah!

They really got pushy when I told them I would not go to a firing range cause I was still willing to do it if it focused on natural disasters like Hurricanes, and you can't tame a hurricane with a cartdridge.

They sent me an email by mistake with a date they wanted to be here and I called back and confirmed then spent about 18 days in high gear cleaning out the crawlspace, adding lights, finishing my hurricane shutters, which was good cause I need to do it anyways and all it took was a quick kick in the behind.

Which is what they gave me LOL. Called two days before they were to be there, and the casting director said she sent me that email by mistake, it was meant for someone else.

Been bouncing the idea around of a mini one run series where I build a concrete apartment under the house using mini back hoes, sheetrock the walls, add windows with large photos on the beach here being them, regulare furniture etc, so it would not be claustraphobic. I figure people would watch an idiot that spent seven years building a house dig a hole under it. Vegas might even put out odds on when it would happen!

I really wish when I first did the foundation instead of a crawlspace, I had made it eight feet tall like the garage instead of four feet. I have two really heavy fire doors that can be lock from the inside like a jail cell for it, and all I would have to do would be to frame off rooms inside and put in another lift station for a full bath then finish the inside like I see it...

Hindsite's twenty twenty but I've got two Really steep hills on the tree farm and if I ever build another house it will be there, and I'll be smart and begin with a bunker and tunnels, then build the house itself out of concrete on top of it...

Glad to hear from you as always RT.

Have a Merry Christmas!

I caught a the first 3 episodes of that show. After the first episode I just assumed that they wanted to start with some of the crazies and after the second episode I was really hoping it would get better but when I saw the one you talked about with the guy and the gun I gave up. I guess no one is interested in those of us who just want to live a normal life but without being so dependent on the system around us. I was always a fan of the studio apartment look for shelters, functional but with those touches that make it feel more like a place to live. Thanks for providing the facebook link, I never got into it but if I ever do I will send you a friend request.

By the way I meant to ask if you were ever a boy scout, you sure seem like you could have been.

Thanks for getting back,
