About Me:

Still working on improvements to the manse: bathroom remodel is in progress. Plumbing for new toilets installed, and one of the two water-saving Kohlers in and working. Garage is next year's project.
Retirement was supposed to be relaxing: I'm working harder now than when I was employed.
