Building For Our Descendants

When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come w hen those stones w…

Creating For The Ages

When we build, let us think that we build forever.  Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone.  Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our father did for us." - John Ruskin

As I sift through items which have been in storage I have come across a book my grandfather owned and inside found this quote. The book is a guide of formulas for building. Not only do I find the passage powerful and the prose beautiful, but it is inspirational to consider these words as I stand among the creations of my grandfather, my father, and their ancestors. As I look back on the year since my fathers passing, they seem particularly poignant.

The Great State License Plate Chase

Our vacation is over and the results of our quest to spy a license plate from every state in the Union are in.

The results of The Great State License Plate Chase:

32 out of 50! 

Plus three Canadian Provinces and one Mexico plate (we couldn't identify a region, so the whole country got filled in.)  I thought that was pretty great.  I hadn't expected to see so many.  Can you believe we never saw a Wyoming plate?  What's up with that Cowboys?!
