My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Lighting / Shade / Pictures / Video Links
Finally got around to adding some permanent lighting in the It'll Du. The two lights light it up like a ballpark.
Finally found a good use for the shade tarp Bigfoot gave me last year. It lets the fridge hut breath and shades it to. Between that and my blocking off a lot of the inside of the fridge with 1 inch of foam it at least acts like an ice box now. It freezes ice (although not much of it) and keeps cold drinks pretty cold. Not much room for anything else in there besides about 8 cold drinks. I'd taken the foam off of the outside of the hut a good while back because all that did was trap all the heat inside the hut.
Took some pictures of a lot of dead desert plants around here yesterday, but decided not to post them. Some of the yuccas that were bearing flowers and fruit last year look like they are really dead now. :( So does a lot of other type plants.
Just killed a small conenose that was trying to chew on my arm.
Music Videos. I was listening to my Zune last night and going to these links as the songs randomly came up on the Zune. Keep in mind a lot of the songs were ones I had put on for my granddaughters and my eX, but I just leave them on there and a lot of times it really depresses me.
