When we bought our house, one of the things we asked the seller to do was cut down the dead tree in front of the house. It was a pretty large dead tree and we saw it as a potential threat if it were to fall toward the house, but the seller ended up refusing to have it removed. Ames’ parents were planning to come up next weekend and they were going to bring us a spare chainsaw so we could take it out. Well, apparently with all the rain we’ve had lately, it decided to come down on it’s own. Fortunately it fell AWAY from the house. We spent the evening trying to get what we could out of the neighbor’s yard. I think we’ve decided to give up for now until we get a chainsaw.
Looking back, I’ve been posting a lot more about house stuff and very little about webdesign or development. So…as a side note, I just wanted to say I’m very excited and inspired by the ALA Redesign. In case you haven’t checked it out yet, the new design is by Jason Santa Maria, css is by Eric Meyer, and the backend is built on rails by Dan Benjamin. How crazy is that? There’s even a few custom promo shirts, including this XHTML fist one on the right by Kevin Cornell. I think I have to buy it.
