It is now believed, that after having lived in one compound with 3 wives and never leaving the house for 5 years, Bin Laden called the U.S. Navy Seals himself.

When PinkHat got breast cancer, we sold our businesses and moved our offices home. Over the course of 5 years through her recovery, one of my meditations was to redo my backyard - I wanted a tropical oasis feeling in the middle of the desert. Nothing you're seeing here existed when we purchased our home. It was a  flat dirt backyard with no greenery.

@nop: Tis... wonderfully so. I love the beach (my mother & her husband live there) and surfed most of my first 30 years... but the dry air is so much more comfortable. Except June through September... uggh.  Tongue

@KK: Post pix of some corn fed dames for us bro!

@arms: it is stunning, and having been a beach boy all my younger life, I would never have predicted that I'd love it so much. At Meadview it is absolutely silent and black at night. I can stare up at the stars for hours in awe and peace. I love it there. Where's your ranch cowboy?

Perk,

Amazing countryside my friend, I prefer the coast but I understand the pull of the desert. I lived in Alice Springs for a little while and you don't get much more desert/remote than that. The night skies are incredible.

Post some pics soon,
