DK's latest project, which she was in the THICK of negotiating in the middle of storm Sandy. It was a rather complicated transaction, which culminated today, involving the coordination of five parties - buyer (that'd be DK et al.), seller, piano guild technician, piano mover, woodworker. Oh, and one more party (HOWARD!!!) - print magician.

That there is an 1893 brazilian rosewood for the record DK does not support decimating tropical rainforests for the making of pretty things Blasius & Sons Philadelphia-made upright cabinet grand piano. Back in the days of real ivory, which this has. DK DEFINITELY does not support the killing of magnificent animals for a body part to make pretty things. DK, picking the brain of her very high end woodworker friend (check out his classic cars section), is gonna painstakingly restore said piece. (Kevin Costner: "If you build it, they will come..." DK: "If it can be built, it can be re-built...")

DK likes a challenge...

But that wasn't even the larger deal DK was closing, at the same time. She is one day from closing a deal two magnitudes larger, probably Monday. Oh, yeah, and then on TUESDAY, she's a gonna help close a deal probably SIX magnitudes larger, which you also can be a part of.

And then, she'll get back to the cashew jars, for y'all.

Stay tuned...

Hot off the presses... (that there's a Mermaiden)


Yeah, I know my glass is slimy, but actually I'm kinda glad. It seems to be these biofilms that they eat.

The last batch are growing nicely, too.

AND.... DK adds parts and pieces to her bins and barrels

OK, so she's a hoarder. She already told you this.

Here are the latest parts and pieces of her hoard.

Extruded aluminum rails, originally for mounting solar panels. DK's thinking garden cold frame, other frame, who knows what, someday.

A pile o' stainless steel bolts and stuff. The heads of the bolts fit into the channels of the extruded rails, so this could be useful.

A few aluminum plates with holes...

Hm. What to do with these....

You can put swing and have some fun in your shrimp room. Or you can support train rails with those extrusions and to have model train to bring you cocktails from upstairs.

Wait! That thing is absolutely gorgeous!
Did you order the catalog? I didn't see a phone #, or website on there...

What happened to Tuesday?

Yeah, they were out of catalogues, and their web guru/IT staff back in 1893 wasn't worth squat toward making them a presentable web page.

It arrives tomorrow from the piano tech. The wood work won't happen until this coming summer, likely.

Tuesday, the Dems won the Big One. That deal was FINALLY closed.

***********

After a fair bit of drama (involving a flying electrical meter that landed on concrete and BROKE, rendering DK's domicile void of electrical power until such time as an emergency call was made to the power company for a replacement meter), and DK's jaw DROPPED when the rep showed up a MERE MIRACULOUS 3 hours later on a Friday afternoon (HOW often does that happen, people??!!) DK is finally back to her Cashew Jar Department Store postings:

So, using some bulkheads and tubing, she makes the Department Store thusly. Out of - what - cashew jars (a la Costco).

DK's clawing her way back... had pneumonia. She hasn't forgotten about the Cashew Jar postings...

Here's a shot of the jars, with the red/orange matrix. The matrix is a polyethylene net, like used in bath scrubbies. Just so happens DK has a stash of it, from a previous project.
