Build update!

Well, I thought that the Federal Government was bad, The provincial Government nasty, but the Municipal Government takes the cake in the paper work red tape department. After being told that it will take 10 days to process the permit, I go in on day 11 since I didn't get a call to see what was going on with the permit. Here you go Jozo it was ready six days after you put it in!
Anyway, now that I have to the green light to start construction, I fire an e-mail off to the Brother to see what tools that he has. Hey, he did offer the use if I ever needed them.
So I have a schedule to follow during the build, which I find kind of funny, why? Well the basement was already framed when I bought the house and from what I know the only walls the need to be insulated and a vapour barrier placed are the outside walls, which are done! one step down, no work done! The second step for inspection is the final product, which I find funny since I'll be putting in lights moving old sockets and they are going to look at it in the end? Not during? oh well, I better get it right the first time or it will be rebuild time!

Front and Center

Last night Danielle and I saw these guys at the Centerpoint theater. Wow, I loved the semi unplugged sound and the banter that both artists gave during the performance. For those that don't know Craig Northey he is from the group called the Odds.

Since I love blues and was expecting a large helping of it from Colin James lets just say that I wasn't disappointed. I was expecting some old Colin James tunes and some Odds Songs which was played the pleasant part was the covers of a few other Delta blues artists, some Clapton and some tunes that Colin James played before he made it big.

Craig Northey is pretty Witty and had the crowd laughing, he played the Corner Gas theme song that he wrote, but the show didn't really pick up till Colin James came out and played "Why d'you lie" acoustically. The show had a feel of a cottage party and was well worth the $30. If you have the chance go see it.
