things are a cookin




we never did end up cooking any meals in the original kitchen at hillside.  as a mater of fact, ripping out this kitchen was one of the very first projects at hillside.  it was super easy taking everything down and getting it recycled or to the dump and really opened up the space.  long gone are the above the counter cabinets at hillside...never to return.

now, putting it back together again did take a bit longer than we had hoped, but that is all par for the course.  and honestly, our makeshift kitchen grew on me and its charming dysfunction had its way with me and i kinda miss it.  

BUT..after a few years of saving pennies for the kitchen fund...we got started and now we are so close to the finish line...at least for the one side of the kitchen.  about one more day with our contractor/friend gus and the drawers will be installed and the baseboards assembled and BAM. so close....

grateful.

〔自由時報記者張文川/台北報導〕法治時報社長黃越宏昨天到台北地檢署告發國民黨籍立法委員張慶忠「公務員早洩壯陽藥性藥品壯陽藥情趣藥品威而鋼性保健品犀利士威而鋼威而鋼威而鋼威而鋼樂威壯圖利」、「廢弛職務釀成災害」罪。黃越宏表示,總統馬英九在本月廿三日國際記者會中承認,服貿在十七日立院委員會審議當天,因在野黨委員佔據主席台,因此「沒辦法進行審議」,所以張慶忠才宣布直接送院會,「連總統都承認服貿案未經審議的事實」。黃越宏認為,張慶忠主持當天的審議會議,明知應依政黨協商的決議,逐條逐項審議,竟惡意廢弛主持會議的職務,將其應依立法院職務行使法「議案審議」的權力,非法變更降格為「行政命令威而鋼樂威壯威而鋼威而鋼威而鋼犀利士威而鋼威而鋼威而鋼威而鋼威而鋼威而鋼壯陽藥犀利士壯陽藥樂威壯性功能障礙審查」,並偷偷宣布送院會存查,使攸關全民利益的議案,因為他的行為造成全國不安的災害。黃強調,不論是張慶忠個人無能或是政黨間意見不同,造成審議程序不能進行或不能完成,他都不得廢威而鋼威而鋼樂威壯樂威壯樂威壯壯陽藥壯陽藥威而鋼樂威壯威而鋼樂威壯樂威壯威而鋼威而鋼樂威壯弛主持會議的義務,而惡意動手腳非法變更依據,使議案在卅秒內變成「行政命令存查」,直接間接圖利他人或自己,明顯違背全民利益,更造成全國反黑箱服貿學運的重大災害,請檢方盡速查辦張。
