Welcome to...


I just landed in Omaha and checked into my hotel. I arrived on a commercial flight but i think i'm in the minority if the amount of learjet's at the airport is any indication. Mel couldn't get on the same flight so she'll get in a bit later. Tomorrow morning, bright and early, we'll head to the Qwest center to attend the 2009 Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting. Given the recent economic issues as well as the most recent drop in book value of Berkshire i expect some great discussion during the question/answer portion!

More to come...

The Work Begins..

so the first step in building this new car will be to completely strip it and make any chassis/body repairs that are necessary. With this in mind i constructed a dolly to work on the car.




All in all it came out rather well but i should have used larger casters. Home depot just didn't have that many choices. i may swap them out, but i want to see how well it rolls once i get the engine and a few other weighty objects off of the car.


Friday night mel and i went out to an awesome sushi dinner at, dare i say, our favorite sushi restaraunt, "Ronin". I had left work early on friday and gotten plates for my camaro so afterwards we headed out to woodward for a bit of custard too! On sunday we spent most of the day clearing leaves from next to the garage. With the 20 new bags we filled today we're somewhere around 40 bags total of leaves removed! It was a hot day to be out working but a nice change of pace from the rainy cold of the last few weeks. Should be interesting to see what buds from all that we raked out too.
