I think that some politicians would think the best career path for women would be as breeding stock so males and unmarried females can work harder and longer so that the bosses will get richer. Otherwise, librarianship would be an excellent career choice. But ask Eiseley.

As for the concrete, well, this is a secret I found out by accident. The foundation and slab for the public library here (and it's not especially big) were poured without taking the weight of the structure into account. As a result it's sinking into the earth at an average of 0.25 inch per year. The city doesn't want it known because it would be responsible for digging down to bedrock and installing jacks and pillars underneath.

SRS... a difficult question... it all depends on what's underneath. Usually, a building with a small footprint doesn't have a problem with an even distribution of additional weight regardless of the soil conditions. An uneven distribution can be a problem if the underlying soil conditions are such that bearing capacity is an issue.

Of course, I can't see your place and the surrounding area from here so even an educated guess is ruled out. Perhaps a call to the local building authority or any engineering schools nearby (although, engineers are VERY reluctant to make any comment as they are liable even for verbal "advice" even when given freely) may yield some info about soil conditions. There may even be some info on the net.

In a nutshell, when you build "evenly" on "uneven conditions" or when you "build unevenly" on even conditions, yer going against the first rule of soils engineering.

As for rebar, it can't hurt... except in the wallet if it isn't installed properly and I've seen many a contractor not install it properly. That is, it's not supported properly so that it doesn't stay at the right height in the slab. Anyway, I shant get into too much detail unless you want me to do so.

LA Times article you might want to take along, Eiseley.

Here I am telling Moonglow she should go to library school and she's preparing to start in the fall. Makes one wonder what will be a viable career path in the near future.

Yes, folks, the house is already a slab and the space is completely contained within the existing slab. My neighbor says it doesn't need the rebar because of that, since it won't be moving anywhere. I do wonder, though, if it will make the house enough heavier to affect anything in the structure?

That's a great concrete calculator you found, Stilly.

Today I'm going to speak at the school board meeting on behalf of all the public school librarians who are being laid off as the most irrelevant positions. What are they THINKING?!?!

I wonder if my speech will have any positive effect. I wish I could go in with a great plan to save money and save the libraries as well. What a way to crush young minds---by taking away the librarians!

Daschunds. Thousands and thousands of daschunds. My friends from the Chicago area were there. During the race one of dogs stopped in the middle, sat up and begged, while another was leading the pack ALMOST to the finish line when it turned around and ran back to the start.

Moonglow drove from here to her house with the check engine light on yesterday. I showed her how to check the oil (we added a little), the transmission fluid, and the coolant level. An oxygen sensor can through that light into a tizzy, and they need an oil change, so I think they need to take it in for the change and a visit to the diagnostic computer.

I need someone to do some math for me - or to go find a calculator. I spoke to a neighbor up the street this evening- seems I'm not the only one who thinks pouring 6" of concrete into this silly "den" in my house is a good idea. Others have done it, or put in sub floors and wood to raise the level to the surrounding floors. My room is 22 x 16 and I need 6" of concrete in the room to fill it. Concrete is going for $78 a cubic yard right now. My simple math would suggest that a cubic yard would fill six square yards of my floor - but I wonder if I'm oversimplifying? Any of you tackle this kind of math before?

Welcome home, Stilly. My oldest son is getting his driver's permit soon (be warned, Rapparee), and I've had a couple of white-knuckled experiences while in the passenger seat. Thankfully they require many many hours of practice, but I really wish kids had to be older before they drove. Good thing we're only 3 blocks from the high school so he'll never GET to drive to school. It's all the other teenage drivers I worry about also.

As l walked out one morning for pleasure,
I spied a dog-puncher come riding along;
His hat was throwed back and his spurs was a-jingling,
As he approached me a-singin' this song,

chorus:
Whoopee ti yi yo, git along, little dachsies,
lt's your misfortune, and none of my own.
Whoopee ti yi yo, git along, little dachsies,
For you know that we're gonna use a new comb.

Early in the spring we round up the dachsies,
Bathe 'em and brush 'em and be-ribbon their tails;
Drive up our horses, load up the chuck-wagon,
Then walk the dachsies out on the trail.

It's whoopin' and yellin' and a-drivin' them dachsies;
Oh, how l wish that you would go along.
It's a-whoopin' and punchin' and go on-a, little dachsies
For you know we're gonna use a new comb.

Lovely drive, quick photos along the way like breadcrumbs, to let people know what I was looking at. Camera photos give kind of a keyhole view of things, but it's nice to be able to share. Now I have to clear out the pickup after the trip.

The kid has driven for a couple of years, Amos, but that has been in the city, in a small Toyota. First time I had him drive the truck in the wide open spaces at 80, passing semis and with the wind and such I gripped the door handle so hard I nearly pulled it off. I had him pull over after about 30 miles at a logical stop to go in and get water, and then I took over again. He doesn't have the feel for it yet, but I'll have to give him a chance to learn. I think driving in Texas nearer Fort Worth where the speed limit is lower, about 65, is a good starting point. I'll do that when we head out of town the next time, and take over when we get into the really fast traffic.

Went for lunch in Beaver Creek, YT (it ain't your Culinary Capitol) and they had hamburger soup on the menu. My MIL had never heard of it but had some anyway. Gee, it was cooked ground beef, canned green beans, some potatoes, canned corn, and some other stuff, mostly canned. She loved it. Worked for me for years.

And for a real thrill consider the bus driver in Haines who picked up this pair of over-70s who had ONE-WAY tickets to Beaver Creek, YT...he made some few comments about it....

The other (better) half of the French Canadian was Irish, me old man, may he rest in peas.

It ain't rocket science eh? Although, my pea (PEAAAA) soup will make ya fart rockets all night long.

And, I tried an experiment with two cans of Campbell's veggie soup and a jar of Ragu spaghetti sauce, a can of stewed tomatoes, a can of waxed beans (mistake), a cup of macaroni, and an undisclosed amount of hamburger and frozen veggies... it turned out absolutely delicious after adding, experimenting, adding... it's deeeeelicious.

Fortunately, the hospital wasn't at all surprised. Rabid werewolves were a problem back then, in that place, and the medical profession was always ready. I wasn't bitten, but Wolfie did drool on me a lot (I nearly drowned!) and I had to be treated for lycanthropohydrophobiaphobia (fear of being drowned in rabid werewolf slobber).

But everything turned out for the best and I became the normal, rational person I am today.

Ever since I was attacked by a werewolf (named "Wolfie Wolf") when I was very, very young I've been afraid of them. My mother killed it with her athame, which she fortunately had with her. Turned out that Wolfie was not only our next-door-but-one neighbor, but was also rabid.

Thank you for your gallant words, Albert and Amos. But I think Rapparee is actually telling us in a roundabout way of his own experience of being flayed by this slender silver stick. You must have done something to hurt it because it has been gentle and compliant for me. Maybe it was trying to get away when it rolled under the radiator. As Gandalf said, "these [th]ings have a way of being found."
