See here for an important message regarding the community which has become a read-only site as of October 31.
Haven't seen you around the AR forum for awhile, or any other board, for that matter, but I remember that you said you were moving and would be away for awhile.
So, how did it all go? You and your partner snug and happy in your new home? Would you believe that it is so warm here today that we are all running around in tee-shirts and sweating? Ha. The cats are all lying around in any place that looks cool, and they're not even energetic enough to eat.
We're having some work done on the house, and the builder that came to look things over noticed that our almond tree is very close to the house, and he said that the roots would start to interfere with the footings, so it will have to come down. No more free almonds for us! Oh, well. Better than having it pull the house down. Trees grow so darn fast here in NZ, that a little sapling one year will be a big monster tree in just a few years. It's the warm climate.
Anyway, good luck with your new home. Tell everybody about it in the boards!
