Aw shucks! Thanks guys! Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed
I never much wanted to be on TV but this seemed like the time if there ever was going to be one.

Halfy- That's actually not me on the excavator. I can run one if necessary (like backhoes, forklifts, tractors etc. I've been messing around on equipment since I was 10) but this job calls for an artist, so we've got a virtuoso in the driver's seat. He literally visualizes the bucket as his own hand and the tracks as his two feet. It's like mechanical ballet! I cold watch him all day.

Eldo- The grant took some doing, but it's through the local Conservation District which helps farmers with such things as environmental upgrades.

Halfy- The Dune Question is a good one, but no time now. Remind me OK?

{{{{...that might be me in the video...}}}}

There were a number of shots I couldn't figure out how they did. Clearly had a helicopter coming seriously close to the trees, but how about when the camera shoots off the end of the washed out road? Telescoping rails? There was a LOT of expense put into this story.

Neat-o story there Dave! Norc's sketches are surprisingly accurate. Razz

Yep! Nod

The crew consisted of just two veteran news people: the interviewer and the camera/light/sound guy. His camera fit in the palm of his hand. All his sound and lighting gear fit in one small suitcase with the exception of the tripods that fit in his other hand. The drone and monitor were in another small suitcase. They did all the scouting interviewing and shooting in one day followed by a couple weeks of research and editing by the interviewer. Pretty amazing!

{{Cant see that happening at my barrel come xmas.... although maybe if I put it outside the barrel, wrap it in a blanket Figg will see it and in a spontaneous act of xmas goodwill (or miracle more like) give my barrel that scrubbing its so badly needing! bounce }}}


{{{Dave (or any UShobbit) meant to ask before after watching that vid- what have Americans got against building foundations? You wouldn't even think of building a house here without good solid foundations as your starting point- might explain why US houses seem so prone to falling over, blowing away, tipping up- put some bloody foundations in you clots! (granted not going to help against the sea- but in general)}}}

At least some of the houses in that video were originally built by the owners as beach cabins without ever worrying about permits. They just wanted a solid roof over their heads when they went the beach, and this was a big step up from the tent. Of course, successive owners kept adding on, like you do.... Any permanent house is required to have a foundation (if only by common sense) but low-budget contractors usually don't use one cubic foot more concrete than is required by law. Mad

I can't remember where it is, but Dave in person reminded me of his sketch from the group-picture you drew. Must have been the beard.

{{Talking sketches- I haven't been able to do any new ones at work on the whiteboard because the residents wont let me wipe the dog off the board Mad and if that wasn't bad enough now their relatives have started taking pictures of the damn thing Mad If I'd known they were going to do that I'd have tried to do a better job, bloody typical! Evil or Very Mad
Anyhow in lieu of being able to erase it I decided to at least try to make it more festive instead (in under 3 minutes as it turned out! Mad I still havent had the time to finish converting the crude flowers to crude baubles. Mad )-

That's a surprisingly accurate drawing for a whiteboard sketch, nothing better to get you in the festive mood than getting annoyed by the lead up to Christmas...
