When I told a friend that I had preordered a Tesla Cybertruck, she wanted to know why. I told her, but the whole thought process is worth writing down, so here's all the details.
So far life in Seabrook seems to be the slower pace and lowered level of interruptions that I've been needing. Yesterday I was able to concentrate for several hours on getting that website transitioned to a live state - even with a bunch of things that went wrong. I was able to get them straightened out and the client is pleased.
Well, we finally have a "real" address. It seems that once a road has at least three houses on it, it needs to be officially named for emergency services reasons. Since the newest neighbors have finally gotten their house built, it is finally time.
The new official address is:
6 Freeses Pond Road
Deerfield NH 03037
Of course, the post office still won't deliver mail to this address; so you'll have to continue to use the PO box when sending snail mail. (I can hardly wait until we can end that monopoly!)
Back when I was in the army, I could have gone "hard-core" and been a gung-ho soldier. Thankfully a friend of mine had introduced me to Arlo Guthrie in high school. I spent a lot of time listening to Arlo's music, which I contend saved me from a life of soldiering. I considered Arlo my personal saviour.
OK, I'm on break.
After Otis broke his pelvis chasing the plow guy, we got a week long visit by 10 young Ron Paul supporters. These guys were great, and joined dozens more coming in from all over the country to campaign for Ron Paul. I hope most of them join the Free State Project and move up here soon.
Today got off to a good start with some woodsplitting. The weather was excellent for winter outdoor work. Then I took off to Manchester for the LPNH board meeting. That was mercifully short and business-like.
After taking Otis for a walk this morning, the people that I bought the land from dropped by for a surprise visit. I gave them a tour of the place, and we talked a bit. I had been meaning to invite them to visit, but never got around to it.
