In Touch Again For Now

INTERNET working again, Woo Hoo!!

Looks like I’ve got internet again. It was up for a few hours several days ago but then went down. We had no ‘net, no house phone for several days. At least we got the power back. And it looks like the gasoline lines that we had everywhere for a few days have now mostly gone away. I’m not sure if NJ is still doing the odd-even fill up thing any longer, but I can fill up today without trouble.

The carpet guys came and got the wall-to-wall reasonably clean. Cream colored deep pile carpet, with a bad case of Ring Around The Condo. I took the baseboard heaters off the walls so they could clean under the edges, and that reduced a lot of the dirty black edges. Give me hardwood floors with carpet over them any day, thank you. But I got all kinds of dirt, dust, and old dead bugs out of the heaters too. And put them back up properly, attached 16” OC, instead of 3 little nails over an 8 foot run.

What with the hurricane, her mother’s funeral, etc., we decided to rent the other place down the hill for the whole month of November. That takes the frantic pressure to move everything RIGHT NOW off, and let’s us do some projects while there isn’t a ton of stuff in the way. Like I cleaned out the clothes dryer and it’s flue pipe, and removed bags full of lint. And we can paint the place without too many drop cloths.

Now she wants to remodel the bathroom, putting in a linen cabinet, replacing the vanity, knocking out the short wall next to the toilet, new cabinets, and new tile. Plus the new shower rod, and gosh, shouldn’t the faucet, shower head, tub knobs and faucets, towel bars, wall shelves, robe hooks, and toilet paper holder all be of the same style? Looks like “laying tile and putting in mollys” is going to be my middle name again.

And naturally, there is another nor’easter headed our way, not a hurricane but a big wet windy storm, due to hit tomorrow. So we can do this all over again.

Hey, we got off lightly. Just a few dozen trees down around here. Down county they are without power, phone, and even water in a few places; I drove around a couple of the Road Closed barriers on some of the back roads nearby, and found downed and trees wires all over the place. The wind gap down by Cherryville Baptist church has every single phone pole blown down across the street for nearly a mile. Dozens of them.  Yikes. I’m just glad that the high tension towers over them didn’t go over as well.

I got up early and went out to vote. It wasn’t that hard, and Union Township was putting in a good showing at the polls. Damn right. We Jersey Tough here, and we’re not letting any lousy disaster make us miss out on casting our votes to get rid of that dumbnuts in DC. So I hope you make the effort today too.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
