It took nearly 4 hours of work and 2 months of preparation (aka persistently pestering the previous owner/seller) but the 1319 gun safe is finally out of the Mulberry House.
An old house is apt to be damp and out of repair. The back yard should be kept neat and sightly, and should not be made a dumping-ground for rubbish and litter of all sorts. A good veranda is equivalent to another living-room. Every dwelling should have a cellar to contain the heating-apparatus, store fuel, and for comfort's sake.
A sanitary house should be dry, sunny, well ventilated, and properly drained. With regard to the location, a southern exposure is desirable. And ground-air has in important bearing on health.
Get your own dinosaurs, read some great books that take place in North Carolina, redo your kitchen in bold colours, and plan a productive backyard get-together. I've got so many ideas for you. You're welcome.

I've got a great condiment recipe to share (not my recipe), some safe vacation ideas, a good cause, and a rant. Enjoy.
