Ain’t no place like a hole in the ground

I am crushed and downhearted by this recent provincial election.  Not because of the result.  I am disappointed by the result.  No, I am crushed and downhearted because over half the people in this province who were eligible to vote did not do so.

Really, people? Ever hear of the responsibilities of citizenship?  Universal sufferage?  One person, one vote?

I don’t want to hear your feeble excuses.  Woody Allen said that 80 percent of success is just showing up.  So next time, when we need you, show up already.

’nuff said.

Our home is currently a hole in the ground.  And as Bugs Bunny once sang, there ain’t no place like a hole in the ground.

with a big fat goon a’ floating around.

Now our land is well dug up, we were expecting to be moving along quite briskly.  But as Yosemite Sam might say, “Hold on, there, pardner”.  Life is a little more complicated than just building a hole in the ground and having someone pour concrete around it (see cartoon, above).


  • our builders (Novell) will be preparing the site for WCB safety – tarps over dirt, barrier from falls, safe path of travel for surveyors and workers, etc.
  • there will be an inspection by Geo-Technical Engineer – for soil stability
  • there will be an inspection by WCB – for safety
  • then once they have the above items squared away, Novell will schedule the land surveyor to come and lay down markers that denote the corners for foundation.
These inspections will take at least a few days – by next week we hope to be into forming the foundation walls.
We’ll meet Novell for our first semi-weekly meeting next week.
Till then, as far as the build goes,  that’s all folks!
