Bread and Butter

Ahh... the Full Length Roof Framer by A.F.J. Riechers (yeah, that's RIEchers not REIchers. Don't be a smart ass and try to trace the German spelling and prove that it should be Reichers like some kid already tried to do to me when I told him about it) And Yes - it really is that small. Back pocket action. Although I have a bunch of construction book recommendations, this particular one is really is not for the general masses, because it's really just a big list of rafter lengths according to pitch, span and type with some instruction on roof framing in the intro. I'll be using this book all the time when I start framing the roof. I used it just a week ago when I was consulting about a blueprint takeoff to decide what length rafter stock I needed. The book is old school - trusted companion to carpenters since 1917. That was when carpenters had one giant arm like a fiddler crab from swinging a hammer and ripping wood with a hand saw all day. Those old timers must be turning in their graves when we bitch about our high-tech nail guns and circular saws -- "The new foam grip on the Senco is giving me a blister inside my palm, Jesus, can't they get it right? Hey, Barry, could you pass the cottage cheese and lowfat ricecakes?"

Hey Jay!

It's pretty weird that you commented on my blog.

I found yours randomly a few weeks ago and cracked the hell up.

Then I read your comment today and thought "who the hell is Jay?"

Turns out, you're the same funny son of a bitch I checked out earlier.

Good stuff, man.

Speak to you soon!

I have no context for finding your blog amusing --- I rent and have never endeavored to renovate anything, much less a house. But, I have to say, I dig your posts . . . they always make me laugh.

There is a thing to tell you Jay about your blog. I check it up frequently because it is so funny.
My man is an amateur DIY, you must be professional. He finds furniture painting very interesting and he does it well. He would like to expand his knowledge in more repairs so he reads plenty of books about how to "build the perfect dog house" or how to "clean the pool".

A model wearing the Burberry outlet collection at once — all nine of the burberry scarf silk caftans in a rainbow of armani sunglasses, one on top of another — circled round and round the gucci sunglasses outlet. Each time she came around, the GHD IV Salon Styler designer and an assistant, both in white nurses' Moncler jackets, peeled off a layer and put Moncler coats onto another model, right in the middle of the coats & jackets.The models wore a white chiffon over their Woolrich to protect the beautiful bias-cut dresses in ruby, North Sails, citrus, mint and buff silk from Paul smith outlet.At the end of the show, the chiffon was covered in crimson kisses.
