Gravel and urbanite, stormwater and topsoil: all inadvertent gifts from neighbors near and far. Some people may look at these things as problems rather than gifts, but we turn problems into solutions and put them all to good use! Years before we bought this property I’m guessing one or more contractors delivered quite a bit […]
Have you ever noticed that people who really know their stuff are able to make complex subjects simple and easy to understand? That’s exactly what you’ll see in these short videos. Everybody should learn the basics here, and really it should be taught in high school. But the sad reality is that many doctors aren’t
