One year ago, we bought our house. We finished the second building (office, guest house, etc) and are living in that while we re-do the main house. Today we installed our woodstove in the main house. First steps were building the hearth from slate we found in the yard, and constructing an air tight metal face also from found aluminum sheeting. The stove is the same model we had in our other house. We loved it so much, the moment we saw it on craigslist, we grabbed it.
for the video geeks- this was made on a Panasonic GH-1 with a 20mm pancake lens. i am still learning how to use it and i didn't have my external mic on, so you hear the auto focus a bunch. next time it won't happen, i swear.

today was a glorious sunday. we are packing up to move to our new house (this is our old place). lots of work got done, but in such beautiful weather, it doesn't really feel like work. VB week 2010. can't believe it.

adrian miles and seth keen took us for a walk. we saw a "mob" of kangaroos. it was fascinating! they are like deer but they will totally kick your ass if you get too close. i could not stop staring, they are the coolest animals i've ever seen.

this is my rural broadband story. things i talk about in this video include page county virginia, hughesnet (check out their service plans and bandwidth limits - top tier service which allows a whole 500mb a day for $350 a month, no joke), highspeedLINK (our new local provider who gives us unlimited bandwidth hurray!). if you or someone you know does not have access to broadband, check out WeNeedBroadband.com and sign their list.
