News Saturday, March 28, 1999 Through Saturday, April 3, 1999

The sidewalk is finally cleared of winter sand and swept clean. The town may soon be replacing the sidewalk and curbs here, and hopefully the retaining wall as well. That will certainly dress up the front of the building.
Sidewalk

The little wood shed is in need of new roof. This shed holds pine and kindling for outdoor fires. It was originally built for wood to burn in the Adobe bread oven, to be rebuilt soon here in Hooterville.
Shed Before

Not a huge roofing job. This should last longer then the shed itself. Now all of the outbuildings have matching roof shingles.
Shed After

The welcome mat is out, soon to be welcoming customers to the sales office in the entry hall.
Welcome Mat

The entry hall remodel has started. Hopefully, a week from now, the room will be patched and painted, have new hatches to the attic "elevator" shaft, and be ready for furnishings. A nice place to come and buy furniture, and stay out of the shop.

Green Side Up

The Crocuses are beginning to bloom.



No sign of the snow peas yet. Time to put in the soaker hose for daily watering.


They look good in white as well. Tulips soon.

The Holiday Inn Express is coming along quickly. It's due to open in May. It's three quarters of a mile from the house and will have eighty or so rooms, a restaurant, conference rooms and a bar.


The old mill in Ballouville, a mile or so north of Attawaugan, looks like the perfect future home of Adirondack Style Outdoor Furniture. With 190,000 square feet available, it's just the right size.


Another view of the mill. If you misplace a tool in this place, you have a real problem on your hands. It could take weeks to find it. It's bad enough in the 2,000 square feet of the shop here.

This is the mill pond of the village mill in Pineville Connecticut. Pineville is not even on the map anymore, but the people there consider themselves living in Pineville, rather then Ballouville.
Pineville Mill Pond

This dam created the mill pond for the Ballouville mill. That's the Five Mile River running over it, the one that flows past the front of the shop.

Last weeks links are to two nicely executed Websites, one selling similar, but not competitive, items. It seemed like they should remain for another issue.

The Eastside Marketplace Website has moved from www.earthlink.net/~igyirhltd/Eastside/Eastside.htm to www.eastsidemarket.com, hosted by www.burlee.net. Look for it there soon, and watch for fast paced developments.




This is where some of the Eastside web page graphics came from.


The green color was difficult to capture. Each of these greens came from the same door on the cover of the catering catalog.

Real-estate

Sunset 1

Here's another great sunset at the cottage on Lake Alexander.

With 10 people in, about $1500.00 down each, and about $80.00 per month would pay the tab.

Sunset 2

Sparkly Sh*t on the water

The views during the day are just as great, and there's always a cool breeze. With 10 people in the deal, each share would be five weeks per year.

This is the slate patio, down some stone stairs near the water. It over looks the north cove.

Patio

North cove

A better view of the north cove. This area is pretty shallow and has a sand bottom for swimming.


$1500.00 down, $80.00 or so per month, with rental income potential to offset expenses.

Here's The Steeple


A pictorial climb to the bell tower, a bat's eye view, Part 2.

Shaft to attick

This is the view from the tiny platform just below the bell room, looking down the "elevator" shaft. The entry hall is five floors below. Right now it's necessary to free-climb the framing that supports the tower inside the attic to get here. The tackle used to raise things to the attic is visible in the center of the shaft.

The hatch to the bell room is rather small. The opening is directly under the bell, which one needs to partially climb into to enter the bell room. The clapper is the size of a very large cannon ball.

The bell

Bell yoke

The yoke is a large iron frame that carries the more then two thousand pound weight of the bell. The bell is so well balanced, that a small push with one finger is all that's needed to ring it. Something you never want to do when you're in the tower. Trust me.

The bell was a gift to the church from the daughter of the mill owner that built the church for the people of Attawaugan. It was cast by the E.W.Vanduzen bell foundry in Cincinatti Ohio in 1892. Look for more on the bell in future Piper issues.

Casting info

Yoke Wheel

The yoke has a wheel on it that the bell rope rides on. This gives you a little better leverage for Ringin'. This may eventually be the room that leads to the hot-tub-observatory. More on that later as well.

> Put some thin slices of butter, or drip some melted butter over the cheese.
> Repeat the previous 4 steps, layering the beets and butter and cheese until the beets are gone.
> The top layer of beets should be covered with cheese as well.
> Pour heavy cream into the dish until you can see the cream beneath the beets.
> Bake at 350 degrees until bubbling and brown on top.

Optional > Add bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces and fried crisp, to the layers and top.

Piper News
Where some of the colors come from that you'll be seeing in the Piper and Adirondack Style Web pages.

This shot was taken Monday April 5, 1999 at Ocean Beach NJ, and the colors captured from this image.

Nice warm reds and oranges from a sunset.

Even some crud on the beach sand is full of great "organic" colors.
Some kinda crud you don't know what it is. Hey, Walter Cronkite ...

Gotta have some chair colors.
