|This has been my busiest holiday season in a long time & it started with termite damage in October that required me to replace all the wood trim on the front of our house. Then in November we had a wind storm that took off part of my roof. Between fixing that, fixing up the house, decorating, Christmas shopping, training a newbie at work, building furniture and refinishing all the cabinets, I managed to go riding the Nomad once (once!) in the past month. I got in some skating, but not nearly enough considering. I did build a few new boards.|
I did manage to lose 16 lbs since Nov 5th on this new diet & exercise program & I'm feeling tired & a bit overworked, but much healthier.
the new boards:

|Ok, I'm not a Californian, I live in the snowy midwest, so I have a question. What's the deal with that roof?|
It looks like you have a good portion of it done in terracotta, and then you have a portion that is good old asphalt shingles like we use here. What's up with that? It's my understanding that the terracotta is basically pottery, and as long as you don't get hit by a meteor or something and smash it it should last just about forever. So if you can have terracotta, why would you fuss about with flimsy asphalt shingles that will burn up in a few years?
You're a smart guy, and I'm sure you've got a reason. So what is it?
<<Congrats on the weight loss BTW. I'll attack mine again soon. What's the program?>>
