  1. Woodworking is on hold for some time due to our move from Corona, CA to Bowling Green, KY. We have been here about a month now and things are going well. Lots of new furniture and and other items of necessity as we left most of our furniture back in So. California via multiple garage sales and giving away to our new Jr. High Pastor and his wife in Corona, CA a bunch of furniture that they could start out with. Going from a 2,600 sq. ft. 4 bedroom 2 story house that we lived in for 17 years and now living in a 1,600 sq. ft. 4 bedroom single story house is a big challenge. But things are moving along as we get all of our ducks in a row (well....we are trying keep them ducks in line but there seems to be a lot of feathers in the air right now). The only "Wood Working" done so far was to get a few 2"x6' from Home Depot to put on top of the kitchen cabinets so Tami could put up some of her cookie jars up so you could see the jars over the molding/trim. One of the struggles coming from a large house to a smaller one is that we have had all kinds of wall space to put up photos and other things on the walls. Now we have to be very selective as we have far less art/photo space. The first thing that I put up was my Great Grandfather's tools in a case that I had made many years ago out of reclaimed wood that came out of an old Presbyterian church from Los Angeles. We have to be more selective artistic-wise with the lack of wall space.
  2. Tami and I spent some time today taking in the changing colors of the leaves. Breath Taking!!

    Storage Clipboard

    Back in the day when I worked for Coca-Cola as a delivery driver, we had metal clip-boards similar to this that were about 5/8"-7/8" thick. You could clip all of your invoices (3 pages- 1 for the customer, 1 for the driver and 1 for supervisors) in the order of the stops to keep things in order. After you finished the delivery and got it signed off by the customer you un-clipped it and moved to the back storage compartment. Those metal clip-boards were also good for dealing with dogs that came running at you as well.
  4. Today I got all the stuff in the garage in order as we will be getting our POD container delivered tomorrow with all of the stuff I packed up a few months ago. I will sure be glad when we get it all unloaded and my wife can start decorating our home and putting pictures and such on the walls. The dog is pretty scruffy and is in need of getting a hair cut. Still trying to find a groomer near by.
  5. Tami and I headed down to get our Kentucky Driver's License today. In California it is usually an all day affair as you have to make an appointment and then stand in long lines with the unwashed huddled masses who are grouchy and then you get to see the person to get your stuff all done. Here in Bowling Green KY we walked in and there were 3 people who were helping the crowd. So we walked in and the lady called us over and she got both mine and Tami's new licenses done. Total cost for both of us was $42. Total time for both of us from when we walked in until we left was 20 minutes and we had some great conversation with the lady that helped us. Gotta love living in Kentucky.

    Planing plastic

    I would not use a planer for that purpose, but I would use a drum sander for that purpose. I had been asked by the operator of my local Chick-fil-a run some plastic-type cutting boards to get them cleaned up from all the cutting. NOTE: these were not used for cutting chicken but for other items. They were about 3/4 to 7/8" thick and ran them through the Jet 16/32 drum sander. Once I got them all sanded and gave them back to the operator he was very happy. I did this twice for him before they got too thin.
  7. We have been busy working on getting stuff done in our new home in Bowling Green KY. We still do not have our refrigerator or washer & dryer, but those should be delivered by the end of the week. Been putting together various pieces of furniture and working on the master bedroom wire rack closet organizer. Still no cable for TV and Internet as the cable company has not gotten it wired yet. Good thing we have unlimited data on our Verizon phones and there is wi-fi in various restaurants. We also have no street lights on our street as it will take another month or so for the city to catch up. So we are tired but are getting things squared away as much as possible.

    Arrived in Bowling Green KY and have New House!!

    Yesterday we got all of our utilities all squared away. Electric, Water, Trash, and Spectrum Internet & Cable. Got a call today from the Spectrum guy. Being "New Construction" the guy had to go to our house and verify that the cable has been activated. Well, since our house is the only completed house and the only one to have a home owner living there the cable lines will not be attached to the house for a couple of weeks. Good thing we have Verizon with unlimited data so we can use the internet on our phones. Our builder, who is a really nice guy, threw in a $1,000 to go towards a new refrigerator from Lowe's where he has a discount on all the appliances that go into the house. So with $1,000 with the refrigerator on sale, we had to pay him $60 for the refrigerator. We also ordered our new washer and dryer out of our pockets. They were on sale as well and we got a 3 year warranty to boot. So it will take Lowe's until next week to get them delivered. So tomorrow we will head to the laundromat to wash our clothes.
  9. WE MADE IT!! FINALLY!!! We have a new construction home in Bowling Green KY that we had on contract. After all the proceeds of the sale of our house in California were disbursed, everything was paid off and so we are debt free with no mortgage on our Kentucky Home. Unloaded the truck and U-haul and now starting to get this home in order. We will be getting our "Pod" container delivered in about a week. Made it here FINALLY!!!

    Heading to Kentucky FINALLY!!!

    Our house in Corona, CA finally sold and closed escrow. So all the proceeds are being sent to the various accounts to pay off our old house and then pay off our new construction home in Bowling Green, KY and the the balance left over to go to our Credit Union account and will be debt free. So once all of that gets done and we get to Bowling Green to do the final walk thru and officially sign docs, we will be all set to move in. We left Corona, CA yesterday and as we were about to put the truck in gear, we got the text from our agent that everything was done and that we no longer owned our Corona CA home. So off to our first stop of Yuma AZ for 2 nights to catch up with some old friends of Tami's parents that we have known for many years. Tomorrow we will give our last goodbyes to the folks in Yuma and start the new journey to Bowling Green KY. We will arrive there on Tuesday as we have to make 2 stops in Texas and 1 stop in Memphis, TN before getting to Bowling Green KY.

    Hispanic Cultural Graffiti - Art

    Being a So Cal Kid like John, the Mexican and Spanish cultures have a great presence in the communities. Yes, there is a lot if gang graffiti, but the Mexican and Spanish cultural art are respected for the most part.

    Update on our move to Bowling Green, KY Part 2

    What is this "SNOW" thing that you talk about? Sounds like some kind of "Fake News" to me. Our Realtor in Bowling Green, KY sent my wife and I photos of the completed house. Pic #1 is the Master Bedroom Pic #2 is the Master Bedroom Closet. Pic #3 is the Kitchen. Pic #4 is the Master Bath. Pic #5 is the Front of the house.

    Update on our move to Bowling Green, KY Part 2

    Yes. It is the same house. Our Realtor in Bowling Green KY swung by and shot a pic of the front of the house. It is completed and the front landscape is done. She will go over and shoot some more photos of the interior for us.
  14. Well, here’s hoping that the 3rd time is the charm with my wife and I moving from Corona, CA to Bowling Green, Ky. We had 2 previous buyers that backed out at the last minute, which really messed up our plans. But now we have a new buyer with all cash and a very short escrow. It is a husband and wife with a young daughter. Today we had the Home Inspection done which should go fine. Considering that we had 2 previous Home Inspections without anything major to fix from the previous buyers. So now we stand with a full cash offer that has been verified by our agent with a 10 day escrow with 3 additional days to get everything moved out. So that means that we have to be out and on the road to Kentucky by October 4th. So now we have to get things all wrapped up here in California as well as get things squared away with our new construction home in Bowling Green, KY. Our Realtor in Bowling Green, KY is all over it as the house has been completed and is just waiting for all the paper work to get signed and have the proceeds of the sale of our California home to pay for the Kentucky home. So here’s hoping and praying that nothing else screwy comes up.

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community.

We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
