My absence

I have not been posting here because I have had spotty access to the Internet. That is a story all by itself. But we have also been trying to get our new place in shape enough to be able to live in this century. Its been a hard slog. And trying to keep up with work has taken up the rest of my time. But I will be posting more in the next few days as things kind of ease up a bit.

Hi, My sympathy to you and your family. I simply cannot imagine what you are going through but am thankful and grateful that you continue posting. Any idea when things will smooth out? I amazed by your patience. Hang in there - I hope it all becomes a distant memory soon.

Scott...

I've got it...

Can you rent a motorhome over there? I would rent one, drive it to the nearest pretty parking place, and send the rental bill to your apartment owner. Tell them that when they make your new apartment habitable, you'll quit billing them.

Hey - get everyone in the whole building to do the same. Call the TV studio and tell them to come tape the exodus - and delivery of the first bill to the housing rental agency/owner.

You might set off the latest revolution in Ukraine... do you think?

These are all great ideas Ron. Unfortunately, it is like the saying "we could have blts if we had the bacon, if we had the tomatoes.

And we are the apartment owners which puts us at teh mercy of teh builder and teh government here. The funny thing is that they say we will get services when the building is complete. The building is complete when the papers are signed. We go to the bank and they say that they are waiting for building to be completed to get the papers ready which is the builder. So we go to the builder and the builder says taht theya re waiting for teh bank to get teh papers ready. There is no body to kick and soul to condemn.

Scoot, have you heard about the events in Sebastopol ? - no heat in city apts. - couple of deputies went on a hunger strike to try to get the problem resolved. I have not heard the latest.
