A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
Another of my favorite fixer-upper sights in Beaver UT. This one is solid brick, brick chimney, one window, one door, modern porch, complete with bales of hay to feed your goat, cow, horse, or whatever. Another rescued photo.
Well Lo and Behold, I found another photo in the archives of the opposite side of above shown fixer upper. Apparently the builder wanted all the windows and doors on one side. Roof maybe could stand minor repairs plus new window glass. Probably available for cheap unless it is a designated historical landmark.
No doubt about what this is as the sign on the vertical tank tells us. Note the modern outbuilding and fence at the front. One of two mandatory stops on the trip from St. George to Salt Lake City and vice versa, the other being the Red Barn in South Santaquin nearer Salt Lake City.

I've posted pictures of this place before, but I just salvaged this photo from a black underdeveloped fate, languishing in despair in my hard drive. Neither wind, nor waves, nor hurricanes, or other calamaties can destroy this rock home. Needs a bit of landscaping, some new windows, and cable TV and you'll be all set!

The historic Provo LDS Tabernacle was recently gutted by fire. The LDS Church decided to use the shell of the tabernacle as the outside of the new LDS Temple in Provo. You can see that the shell is jacked up on high stilts as construction continues. Amazing
