I'm Back

I got the keys on Dec. 20th to my new my cabin in the woods, and before you start thinking of myself and the "unibomber" in the same thought --- Well mr. Ted could only wish he had such a nice "cabin". lol

I am secluded, as the next picture shows. This is my new used car sitting at the start of my 700 foot driveway, which is off a dirt road off another dirt road. The house needs to be finished inside and I've started but the bones are new and well put together.

I moved in the week of Christmas and with the wood heat and no ready wood, I've been scrambling to keep building up my stash of cut and split wood while keeping the house warm, not to mention keeping the driveway and other areas snowblowed. We have had a hard winter so far. Soooo please forgive my just now getting on line.

I have had a hard time just getting my cell phone to work up here. Now with the purchase of cell boosters and hotspots and wireless adaptors and "air cards" not to mention hours on the phone and making friends of the Geek squad at best buy, I today have broken through the gate and am on the information super highway.
My house is much easier to keep warm than the one I had in the city and although everyroom in the place needs something from major to minor finishing, it is finishing and not rebuilding. The main floor doesn't have a bath room so I'm building a 1/2 bath. I'm not complaining, I'm really having a ball.

As a previous post stated, I've started a "Carmen's" type of breakfast up here in Hart at the La Fiesta which is at the corner at the only stop signal in all of Oceana County.and we have been having a meeting every Tues Morning 8am since the 10th of November. As always all are welcome to stop in and get "Snarky". So far we've had some politicians like our State Rep. and Senator plus the Pentwater Mayor. We are still small and finding our way but I think it is taking root.

I will get back to posting about my new area and precinct with all the political ins and outs as I find them. But I will have to break into it slowly as there is a constant set of chores I have to do just to keep the heat on and the driveway clear.

Did somebody mention a blizzard? Forget about it.

As Always,
Regards, Live Dangerously Be A Conservative.
