  1. It's a trade-off on the block size. Too little: inefficient. Too big: back breaker!

    Eskimos of whatever stripe are the hardiest man Jacks on the planet. They eat National Geographic photographers for breakfast.

  2. Incidentally, the vid won't play for me on Firefox or Opera; says "OUPS! Stumbled upn an error! Could not connect to URI through all valid protocols"

    And they did spell it "OUPS".

    My post: a report on my mother. I left out the part about how she braved the storm this morning to go out and get her hair done. A girl wants to look her best.

  4. I built one of these about fifteen years ago – a small one as we had a decent snow pack after a couple of storms but not enough to build a full size one.

    Tell you what – it wasn't all that hard and when it was finished it was fairly warm inside. If you had to, you could start a small fire and walk around in a sweat shirt and jeans.
