-And now we've begun to dig a proper grave for it.-
The demo has begun. Brian has built a new gate and is redoing the cabinets. I've been packing the old house, doing yard work, and chipping away old floors with a hammer and chisel.

It will be made of old The Monkees records.)

But let's talk about some of the positives I have discovered. Most of it edible.
