So Close!

Scoring is a strange thing.  Sometimes a low score is better.  Golf.  Other times there's nothing higher than a particular score.  Bowling.  But to really mess with "winning" you have to hand it to economists and particularly their use of indexes. 

How much do you weigh?  If you were an economist you could adjust for muscle mass, bone density, time of year and phase of the moon to weigh anything you wanted.

The last of the original 20 Dow Jones Industrial companies was dropped by 1930.

Weather is hard. Really hard theoretically. Remember the butterfly effect.

The "Wundermap" says sm_refugee is wet and the dawghaus is moments away from 40 hours of rain.

I am glad everyone is "getting" the point of this post.

WatchING this old house, my word, what a lot of hand labor! The home owners must be subsized by the slows!!

Lawyerliz said...

This old house was the last hurrah of an old way of thinking. These days strip the the architectural elements and sell them in California and use the profits to build a modern home.

LBD said...

That is the fun, challenging and frustration thing about old houses is not much was of standard sizes. Then you have the low income home builders using scrap materials. Some of the things they did are just sad and others are kind of genius.

Windows. Rip those abominations out to the frame and put in things that don't have negative "R" values.

LBD said...

Windows, yes they have very much improved. Unfortunately the current project is the runt of the litter and the recondition budget falls short of replacement. So they get repaired cleaned up recaulked and weather stripped. If they where standard size I would probably break down and do pocket windows.

Rob Dawg said...

Last several reconditions I have done have involved "the window people" coming out, taking measurements, quoting a fixed price, and doing a great job in a third the time.

LBD said...

My time is worthless and it's good winter therapy. LOL!

Lawyerliz said...
