Saint Paul Clan Members Build a Fire Pit

Last Monday I had a comp day for working on Easter and coincidentally SB had the day off as well so we decided to start working on the fire pit that we had discussed. He came downstairs with some printed directions and we set off to Menards. We got 100 bricks, 200 pounds of gravel, along with a couple tools and brick adhesive. We came back and Josey was super excited to dig a hole so he started on that immediately. He even suggested that digging a hole is a great way to exercise and that a fun activity would be for two groups of guys to go out to the country for a hole-digging contest. I agreed, as you must with Josey's ideas. Digging went pretty quickly as SB and Josey took turns, I pitched in for a short time at the end, and then SB needed to go back to Menards for more gravel. Josey and I started laying a few layers of bricks, being careful to keep them perfectly level, see photo below. It was very scientific work actually. Eventually we found we needed 8 more bricks to finish the top layer so we made another Menards run, it was SB's fourth of the day. It is currently one layer higher than in the photo. We have further plans to add a patio around it as well as capstones to make the visible portion look nicer. For now it's a fully functioning fire pit and we're looking forward to hosting any clan members to a bigass bonfire.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter fellow Cydonians! I just woke up, have already devoured three chocolate and peanut butter tinfoil-wrapped eggs. I consider it a reward for attending the 2 hour church service last night.

Did any of you partake in what looks to be a good time somewhere in the world?

21 Day Until Brokeback Big Guy

    For my first post on this blog, I thought I would come out with some information that is important to at least a couple members of this blog. There was a headline today on the website of the Wall Street Journal that was entitled: "Iowa Court Says Gay Marriage Ban Is Unconstitutional"

    A brief summary of the article states:

"The Iowa Supreme Court says the state's same-sex marriage ban violates the constitutional rights of gay and lesbian couples, making it the third state where gay marriage is

In a unanimous ruling issued Friday, the court upheld a 2007 Polk County District Court judge's ruling that the law was unconstitutional."

This ruling will take effect after a 21 day period. So, will there be an SB and Josey marriage in three weeks? According to a video discovered by one of the KofC's bloggers (Unky Eternal), there is significant evidence for this marriage. Only time will tell on this matter.
