    Cat Pics

    Yeah, he had a good life. The long story short is that our neighbour found a stray kitten in 2006 and asked if we wanted him. I didn't even want to look at him, as we had three already and I wouldn't be able to resist. She had to take it to the shelter. When we went to adopt again in 2008, I chose Mr.Mister (the only cat I never named) because he had been in the shelter for almost two years ! Got him home and the neighbour comes over and says that was the cat she took in. Looked at the paperwork, and there was her original intake info. Incredible, really. The shelter had a cat plague a few weeks later after we adopted him as well, and all the cats had to be destroyed. Lucky boy. It is such an odd feeling. You get so used to the daily routine that I expected him to still be lying on the floor by the bathroom, and you have to be careful not to step on him. I opened an extra tin of food this morning, as per usual as well, although the head wound might have been a distraction.

    Cat Pics

    Put down our 15 year old Tuxedo cat yesterday. Been sick for months and shitting and puking all over the house. Never feels good, but it was time. I was looking forward to a house not smelling like cat shit, without puke stains on all the rugs, to be honest. Went to bed early and was enjoying a good sleep, only to be woken by the screams of our two mexican cats at 3:00am when the neighbourhood asshole cat came to the window right above my head. Furnando was so startled, he clawed right across my forehead and neck and left me bleeding on the pillows from the gash above my eye. Karma ?

    Cat Pics

    I don't have a pic, but our neighbourhood is getting the underground water pipes replaced for the last week. Our youngest cat Izzy has been running through the pipes stacked up on the sidewalk. She plays in them for hours, and stalks people walking past them, jumping out from them as they pass. Incredibly cute, but makes me very nervous. Can't stop her though. She's having a blast.

    Golf thread / my new project

    Three pages and not a single Caddyshack reference ? I was a keen golfer when I was young. Parents bought me Jack Nicklaus Golden Bear clubs when I was about ten. Had a membership at the local club and played probably 4-5 times a week. Never took any lessons, so never got really good, but kept at it all the way through high school. Realized the game was no longer for me because of a few reasons... 1.) took up too much time 2.) started getting popular in the 80's - too many clowns on the course and prices went up 3.) always frustrated, whether I'd play good or bad 4.) punching a guy for stealing my ball (he so deserved it). That was actually the last time I played, other than a free vacation day at Torrey Pines in San Diego years ago.

    Living Remotely or Off Grid

    Karl - here's an inspirational example from Grand Design Australa (much better than that English wanker)... https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6tv8n9

    Living Remotely or Off Grid

    Well said Karl, but maybe this discussion should be in the Architecture thread ? I would sum up your frustration (and mine before I quit the industry) that unfortunately there are too many people with too many other interests involved in creating buildings who simply don't share your values or respect your knowledge and experience. The longer you work in the profession, the more cynical and jaded you'll become. Buy some land and build your own house off-grid. You'll feel much better. edit: it's great that you've found your passion. Sorry to be such a downer.
