Before going to work, we stopped by Casa New Jersey so I could take
pictures of the “empty” house (it wasn't completely empty—the previous
owners left a few “things” behind, where “things” can be read as “stuff
we now classify as garbage”).
Most of the junk left behind was upstairs in the Kids' Room, although The
Kids were more than happy to keep it.
Too bad. It's junk. And what wasn't junk (like the large pieces of
plywood used to cover the windows during a hurricane) is too useful to let
them have at it.
One of the more dangerous items found was a rusty machete in a stand of
bamboo at the far corner of the lot, which I jokingly called our own little
slice of Southeast Asia.
And in the Master Bedroom, the previous owners were kind enough to leave a
painting for us.
The next few days will be spent cleaning up the remaining “stuff” and
the actual move will happen next week.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
