The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Falling Down on the Job

In addition to working on the Queen (well, in theory at this point), working the day job, and taking care of a two year old, I've added an online web page design class to my things-to-do list. Since I just got the text book last night, I've had to play catch-up on the homework. Oops.

If I manage, I'll try to get the whole six-color-shingle post up soon. If not, have good weekend anyhow.

Ooohhh, what program are you going to learn, for making your web designs? Back when I was in school, we were only allowed to use Notepad. Later, I thought they were crazy when they suggested this newfangled software called HomeSite. I would do all my coding in Notepad, and throw it into Homesite at the very end to turn it in. Now I would give anything if they had taught me Dreamweaver...and Fireworks...and all that other shiny new nice stuff. ;) I feel like an outdated dinosaur.

Don't feel too old. The first half of the class is all about Notepad and HTML. However, the last 3-4 weeks is all Dreamweaver. I'm really excited about learning Dreamweaver though most of the class isn't - they think it costs too much. Me? I guess I was just looking for an excuse to buy it.

I'm looking for an excuse to buy it, too! :)
