Sorry for the lightweight blogging recently… been very busy both at work and at home. The above is a photo of merely ONE of my barn projects of late. Can you guess what it is?

I also dealt the final coup de grace to the fallen tree in our backyard last weekend. Fun story about that, but I haven’t had the time to post it!

I also owe everyone the “day two” of the Classic Motorcar Rally… really behind on that.

Oh yeah… I finished the book about Chile under Pinochet… fascinating stuff. I have some thoughts about it I’d like to share, but again… not enough time for my own writing recently.

Oh well. I’ll get to it, I Promise! 😉


  1. I think it is to provide you with hot water in the barn as you have been sent to Coventry by Mrs Goolsbee for spending too much time tinkering with cars… and the barn is now home…

  2. I see a pump with plumbing apparently into and out of a water heater, and with a pressure gauge on one of the lines. I’m going to guess this is a heater to warm the veggie oil at some stage in its process cycle?

  4. Looks like you’re planning to brew your own biodiesel. Excellent.

  5. Ya know, all you have to do now is hook up a small diesel generator to power the whole house, or at least the barn and processor. Take the barn off the grid in the most vegetable-green way…heh…or put a small solar array on the roof…or put some solar thermal collectors on the roof to heat the water in the heater… Just some random ellipsical thoughts. (Hey, I thought up a neo-neologism!)
