Movement

They're putting form around the pool today, preparing to pour the deck. The guys doing the work seem to know their business and they're working hard at it.



Maybe in another couple of days, I can count this portion of the project completed.

Then comes landscaping and pavers and making everything pretty. The value of the property is certainly increased. The grandkids will enjoy the pool. I'll enjoy the pool.

Work's been busy, too. We recently installed a security camera system and the boss is using it whenever he gets bored. I'm going to have to figure out a way to bell that cat.

And the School Board has a new program that blocks blogs. Whenever a user tries to access any blog, whether it be Instapundit, or the Kos, or PawPaw's house, the green violation screen pops up.

And that's a double-edged sword. If the kids can't get to their MySpace pages, or the Xanga site, then they can't access them during school hours.

However, I and a select few teachers tried to keep up with what was happening online and we'd surreptiously check the student sites to keep a pulse on their web presence. I won't be doing that any more. If the Board doesn't want me watching those sites at work, I won't watch them at home, either.

About 12 more school days, and we'll be out for the summer. I'm looking forward to this one.

Nice to see you back, PawPaw. I read your blog often and enjoy it. I don't know you in person but you seem like the kind of guy I'd enjoy being friends with. (I'd also love to be invited to swim! [GRIN]) Anyhow, just wanted to saw it's nice to see an updated post and that I enjoy your blog (even if I don't know how to load my own bullets!). :)

Go to a proxy server first.

Then go to your blog.

Kbarrett posted a list of other proxy servers somewhere on the NoR forum.

I believe he said in the forums that they blocked hidemyass, along with anything with "proxy" in URL.
