You have this too? Your fav


Yeah. 327/365 64 Stingray. Took me 2 years to do the restoration on that thing. I didn't learn my lesson though and bought an old house that needed a lot of work.

I have an old house, too - that needed a lot of work. In fact, I was just this morning doing some long overdue painting in the back room (a sun-room)....
this house was built in 1939, and it was built to last - repairs and maintenance are difficult because it was built with oak framing, real stone, and the best materials money could buy. The original owner was a contractors' insurance agent, and his clients (the contractors) built the house. All copper plumbing, heavy duty top-quality (for the time) wiring, plaster walls, hardwood floors, etc. A tornado wouldn't level this place! No way. Fortunately my contractor has become a good friend, and he enjoys the challenge. There is NO project on this house that is easy.

I bought it in 1999 - for $45,000 - and it needed new almost-everything. I do the "caterpillar" method - one room at a time, and the sun-room is the last of the main living space that needed updating. I'm so excited to be so close to having it done!

No easy-peasy weekend window swap out for us - no - it takes hours and hours and special equipment and lots of experience to do anything structural. But I love it. It has lots of character.....

I hear you. 1871 here.

So far I have done the roof, clapboard, exterior trim, stripped all the interior woodwork, resurfaced all the floors (they were under wall to wall), two of the bathrooms, painted all the rooms, restored the 3 story staircase, resurfaced the wrap around porch and changed some of the electric.

I just need to do one more bathroom (minor) and the kitchen (major).

oh my. Okay, my house is more reminiscent of a rustic cabin-at-the-lake type of thing. It has a distinct Tuscan farm cottage flavor.

I went the Victorian mansion direction. Although a Tuscan farm cottage is cool since I like Tuscany. And farm cottages.

Did you see the one with Nick Offerman narrating (BH first posted it) ---- ????

(Oh, there's another "favorite" thing - laughing, and making people laugh! (The latter I'm very good at in person, not as good in writing, but I'm working on it!)

I'm in the same boat with a couple of screenplays looking for $$$.
We try and market our films/screenplays by making a teaser and going to pitch fests after being rejected by our local producers. One option so far....

We have shifted to TV episodic for our projects. Cheap, quick and dirty.


"The Gunfighter" was a huge inspiration for our festival shorts.

These things, too:
If Google Was A Guy.



There are more of them now!!!! There are 5! This is just the first one. I highly recommend watching at least the first 3.....you get to know some of the characters during 1 and 2 ..... 3 is IMO the funniest...

and also, watch Tiny Hamster....he has lots of adventures.

Ok Augustus, your room is really cool, the paint colors are a nice touch. The crow molding is 3/4 up the wall, also cool.
What is this on your pool table?

That is picture rail, it is original to the house.

A birdcage. When my wife and I got married it was on the front porch. A traditional Victorian wedding decoration was a birdcage which people would place envelopes in or on.

O_o confused.

I just wanted to post the "If Google Was A Guy" vids because I think they are funny, and they are some of my favorite internet 'things' -

don't know what you mean by "promotion"?
