Well, I have the narrow boat Poppy developed to the point where the next level will involve serious plumbing and kitchen upgrading so I can stop here and enjoy the fruits of the last few months of work. But, this has me realizing that as I established a good and healthy place to live on the canals and rivers of England the real work can now start of maintaining my home as it has always been defined for me, the sharing of love and interests with family and friends. This, to me, boils down to the difference between hardware and software in that you can create the best hardware in the world and have it useless without some software or content on which to express its “coolness” and capabilities. This blog and website will be the home of GreenHistory, the new venture I have mentioned and Rigall/Design, LLC the design firm that continues to prosper and find ways of helping a very good clients. I have a lot to learn about this work of keeping a blog but you will, I hope, see the progress if you keep checking in for the new posts. To those that haven’t seen some of the interior improvements to NB Poppy, I am sharing some photos of its new stove and the associated solar and electrical panel. As my posting gets more second nature you may have more of my observations and opinions shared, as is typical of blogs, but stay tuned for much more news on GreenHistory and the first garden history course / tour which will be offered Spring of 2015. The details are now being worked on and you will be asked for more input as they become more fixed as to dates.
