Couldn't think of an existing thread to put this in so I created a new one. There is probably something like it somewhere but the search function only angers me.

I reached a new level of being Canadian yesterday. I spent Saturday afternoon helping a friend to tap maple trees. I never saw it done before so it was interesting and I got to spend a nice day snowshoeing through the woods.

Wow. Tapping maple trees. I like the outdoors, so to me that sounds like something fun to do witha friend.

I spent several hours yesterday doing a local saltwater tank tour. A number of people from a local chapter of the Greater Iowa Reef Society club went around town to look at people's tanks. The smallest tank was 75 gallons (being replaced by a 180 gallon that was just getting set up), and the largest was 250 gallons. The 250 gallon tank had a 120 gallon "sump" tank attached for filtration.

It all made my 120 gallon look tiny.

Murph is the Canadianest.

I was the Deck Referee at King County Aquatic Center (site of the 1990 Goodwill Games!) for a bigass age-group swim meet all day yesterday. I used my whistle quite a lot. My feet got wet. My kids were not swimming, but I volunteered anyway, because the world needs helpers.

Did you ask what the hydro bill was? Those huge tanks are a wonder to behold, but the bills...

I just finished a working design for a 2100sq ft rancher around the 8'x15'x26' LR/HT. I'm going to try for vaulted throughout with 9' flat ceiling in the LR but I already know this is pushing the engineering available to me.
We loose the kids family room but their bedrooms nearly double in size.
The wife gets her own ensuite and walk in closet and I was able to add a half bath in the utilty room/family entrance.
3.5 bath, 3 bed.
Will start the scaled drawing tomorrow to see how close my line drawing is.

I guess its not exactly non audio.
The drawing was around the HT and tunes were playing while I got lost in the design.

I'm finishing up some tasks for work (IT) that have to be done during off hours, does that count? frown

I just (painfully) did an overdue expense report early this am before my wife starts complaining about us financing my company travels! They're so easy when you stay on top of them, and so painful when you procrastinate and build up a big pile of receipts.

Ha!!!
We had to drive to my house when he neglected to charge his cordless drill. We did indeed pick up a coffee on the way.

No Stompin Tom but there was a Maritime band playing on my MP3 deck in the truck. The Stanfields

Warning:
The Stanfields kick ass and get a pub rocking like no other Maritime band I've seen in a long time but if you watch the new video on the link I posted, be forewarned it's ridiculously violent. I kept waiting for it to make a statement that would justify it but instead it just kept getting more violent.
