We finished spraying the gunite and pouring cement for the river bottom. It needs to cure for another week, after which we can seal it and "fire that baby up!" William was quoted as saying, "This time I'm sure it will work."
We've added a new video tour of the facility to the website. The feedback that we've received has been positive thus far.
Will sold his jeep, so now he's looking for a new, more fuel efficient car. He's also still looking for a job if you know of one.
Elizabeth is in Guam. Enroute she stopped at Hawaii to get a cracked windshield repaired, and while there she got up at 3 AM to go on some deadly hike where 8 people have fallen to their death so far this year. Does she ever know when to quit?
The chickens are molting, so they look pretty pathetic.
William has had a couple of weeks off from consulting, so he's been pulling weeds like crazy. I wouldn't exactly say he's caught up, but he's getting closer.
Marianne continues to experiment with new cooking ideas. Her latest experiment was home made cannolis. She's also been writing some descriptive passages describing the background of the various room themes.

Hints from "The Everyday Cook-Book," (c) 1889 and found in the Jamul Haven Angel House.
To Cure Toothache: The worst toothache, or neuralgia coming from the teeth, may be speedily and delightfully ended by the application of a bit of clean cotton, saturated in a solution of ammonia, to the defective tooth. Sometimes the late sufferer is prompted to momentary laughter by the application, but the pain will disappear.

To Roast a Leg of Pork: Take a sharp knife and score the skin across in narrow strips (you may cross it again so as to form diamonds) and rub in some powdered sage. Raise the skin at the knuckle and put in a stuffing of minced onion and sage, bread-crumbs, pepper, salt, and beaten yolk of egg. Fasten it down with a buttered string, or skewers. You may make deep incisions in the meat of the large end of the leg, and stuff them also, pressing in the filling very hard. Rub a little sweet oil all over the skin with a brush or a goose feather, to make it crisp and of a handsome brown. A leg of pork will require from three to four hours to roast. Moisten it all the time by brushing it with sweet oil, or with fresh butter tied in a rag. To baste it with its own drippings will make the skin tough and hard. Skim the fat carefully from the gravy, which should be thickened with flour. A roast leg of pork should always be accompanied by apple sauce, and by mashed potatoes and mashed turnips.
