Mailbox: The Golden Ratio in modern form

April 11, 2016

Van & I decided to end our squabble with the USPS by putting a mailbox curb-side. image

We started with the end in mind. Here’s a box for parcels. But then we stumbled upon an idea: why not incorporate the golden mean?

Based on the US Postal requirements, which consist mostly of minimums and not exact dimensions, we arrived at our Golden Ratio Mailbox.


We used some old plywood with a mahogany veneer that has been stored for nearly 60 years.

Updating a master bathroom

June 16, 2014

It’s actually a half bath, but it is attached to our master bedroom. The water damage was a result of a poorly installed toilet. Which is gross.
I’ve replaced the subfloor and screwed Hardi-backer over some white thinset. Now it was ready for the 6 x 24 porcelain tile.




The results of a nuked site

November 27, 2013

In the past month I’ve seen Ann Dee’s website go from 100 followers to 37,653. It seems that running a version of joomla that is 6 years old has it’s share of security risks. So I had to contact our webhost & request a full site Nuke. I had to manually copy each of Ann Dee’s posts and I am in the process of restoring all 136 posts.
I didn’t consider my own site and forgot to get those posts.
So, if you want to get any advice on how to copy and paste 6 years of your wife’s writing – come at me, bro.
