    I recently managed to evade a huge piece of ice coming off an SUV. Fortunately the lane to my right was empty but it hit my door mirror. It was probably 2' x 3' and made a big dent in the driver door.

    There was a building where there will be a building. They saved as much as they needed.

    It is all shear wall. The general contractor met me for the inspection. He didn't know what a shear wall is. No fooling, ..clueless he was. At one point he stepped on a pipe and ended up on his back.

    He didn't know what was wrong with this either.

    It is still connected to the original ground rod.

    Other than tools, it was only used for powering the refrigerator.

    That's a lot of chickens. Years ago such a structure caught fire. It was full of roosters used for fighting. The coop was subdivided and rented out to rooster owners. Many dozens of the stalls were still intact and the rooster owners were allowed to claim their fighters.

    I saw that before I went inside. I was told that it couldn't be in the wall because of the drain pipe. I was immediately curious.

    That's a good question. It's all coming out so I'll try to find out about that.

    Saw those in Mexico....Cool stuff, I guess they grow thorns to "protect" themselves, they respond to animal contact and grow thorns in those areas to protect themselves from physical damage...If we could just get NM cable to do that...
