Kitchens

   Posted by: John

The only problem with having kitchens like these is the overwhelming desire to keep it absolutely clean, and cooking is not always a ‘clean’ function.  Peels, seeds, flour…stuff gets spilled or slopped.  Regardless, I would be right at home cooking in these kitchens.

Rustic Kitchen

   Posted by: John

Kitchens are awesome.  Kitchens are not just where food is prepared and eaten.  Many times they are the center of the home.  One of the things I really like is a well done rustic kitchen.  All of the functions of a modern kitchen, but with amazing rustic design.  Here are a couple that I would be completely at home in.

Covered Bridge Pics

   Posted by: John

There is a cool old covered bridge East of Albany. While we were visiting my sister we went over and looked at it and the cute little park that was right there by the bridge.

Lily in the snow

   Posted by: John

A little bit of snow to a small dog seems like a lot.  There’s about 4 inches of snow in the back yard…just about how long her legs are.

Winter has arrived!

And it has brought with it cold, snow and cold.  The weather bookies are saying -1 tonight. Yuck!

Here’s some snow pictures though!

Wind Turbines

   Posted by: John

Coming back from Glenns Ferry one day I drove several miles up a back road called Oregon Trail Byway.  It went straight through a wind turbine farm.  There were several hundred of the things around.  I stopped right by one of them.  There was surprisingly little sound.  One thing you never see from a distance is the power regulator/transformer outside the tower.
