Before Shot of PVSI Pond and Front Office Area
The plan being, that we would fix up the Home Place to be our Model Landscape Home. We are adding a Pond/Pool with waterfall and a sidewalk that runs from there to the front door of the house, bounded by various Landscape Features and gardens. There will be border gardens all around the house, and ornamental Trees and Shrubs planted over the North half of the property, including upgrading the present Orchard, North of the greenhouse.
The work was started in the middle of August, with Matthew Northup and Mark Binkley digging down along the foundation and installing Styro-foam for insulation and tearing off the Front Porch and the back entry in the process.
South End, After Back-Filling, Ready To Start Setting Landscape Blocks
Curt Binkley was contracted to finish the siding.
Diana Morkassel and her Spruce-Up Nursery has been hired as the primary Plant design specialist. She will supply all plant materials and act as sub-contractor for the planting process.
South End, With Landscape Blocks Partially Installed
East Side; Patio Area and on to the Pond
North East Corner; Landscape Timber Border Garden
Wayne's Lawn Service has been contracted as the primary construction Vendor with responsibility for the design and installation of the Pond and Landscape features, as well as prepping the PVSI Construction yard and burying all the Bargain Barn mess that was left after the fire.
Before Shot of PVSI Materials Area
Eventually, we expect Darien Northup to be our primary building construction General Contractor.
We also expect to involve David Samuelson as Architect, and as a secondary Construction General Contractor.
So far, there has been no interest shown by Cousin Gary Northup, who has a long history as Developer and General Contractor of homes and Commercial Building or by my brother-in-law, Tony Persinger, who also has been an Independent General Contractor in his own right.
My daughter, Cherly Ballek has fixed up their house in Bemidji and has it put up for sale. We are hoping proceeds from that eventual sale can be at least partially pumped back into this company to get us building houses.
Part of our philosophy is to put our people to work at a decent wage, with the prospect of investing a portion of what they earn back into the Company on a Stock Purchase Plan. If an employee is hired at $9.00/hr, he can invest up to $3.00/hr of that money into stock, whereby the company will equal that committment, in essence giving that employee a total value of $12.00/hour. Similar stock ownership plans will be put in place for the various Vendors. The vision is that all people who work for the Company will own a stake in the Company.

Path of Katrina crossing Florida, building strength in the Gulf and Striking just East of New Orleans
In September of 2001, the people of this country woke up for a few short months before they went back to sleep. The idea of a major Terrorist Attack on American Soil is now, as it was prior to 9-11, on the back burner.
In September of 2002, the article linked to on the top of this page came out. I, for one had never heard of it. I suppose the war in Afghanistan, and the looming threat of a similar attack on Iraq was taking up all the headlines, and no one was very interested in the possibility of any sort of natural disaster striking American Soil. We are a God-Fearing country, and God would not allow such a thing to happen.
Katrina Bearing Down on the Mississippi Delta
But, now it is September of 2005. The Anniversary of the Day the Terrorists came to America is looming large, and the disaster of Katrina is a week old today. The kibitzing and Politicizing has already started. So far, I have not heard anyone accuse President Bush of causing the Hurricane, but he has been accused by many of responding too slowly and the government at all levels has been accused of not being prepared for this. There is some truth to this accusation, but it is not the sole responsibility of the President or the Congress to act. This is a country Of the People, For the People, and By the People. It is time that We the People get concerned about some of the things that are going on. We bear the ultimate responsibility.
There are two primary reasons why the devastation was so bad in New Orleans by a mere Category 4 Hurricane. They are unrelated, except both were caused somewhat by a form of greed. It started over a hundred years ago when we started building dikes to keep the Mississippi from flooding.
This was essentially Land Greed.
The land that is in the most precarious location is the prime land, that people are willing to pay any price to have it. And they expect the government to step in and help them keep it safe. I have heard many complain that "The Welfare People" are expecting the Government to step in and help them because they are left homeless. The real problem is that the Wealthy Landowners on these lands are willing to pay any amount of Insurance money to guarantee the safety of their precarious mansions. And "We the People" are ultimately paying for it.
The Army Corps of Engineers has been ordered by the Federal Government to build the Dikes and Dams that are largely responsible for the condition the Mississippi Delta is in today. The other part of the equation, of course, is the huge Oil and Gas interests in the area.
This is Oil Greed.
Not only is the Gulf and the Delta covered with Oil Wells and their acompanying Pipe-Lines, most of the Oil coming in from the Middle East traverses these same waters. The canals dug by the Oil Companies into the marshes is the other primary reason this part of Louisiana is sinking into the sea and there is no longer a buffer region to calm the fury of the hurricanes, so they can hit New Orleans full force.
A city that was built by greed, ten feet below sea level and protected by 20 foot dikes that merely serve to hold the water for months after a thirty foot storm surge breaches those walls.
I urge you to click on the title of this BLOG and read the article in it's entirety, including listening to the radio clips. Remember that this dire warning was sounded in September of 2002, more than 3 years before Katrina formed in the Caribbean Sea.

Whosoever, therefore, comes and teaches you all these things that have been said before, receive him. But if the teacher himself turns and teaches another doctrine to the destruction of this, hear him not. But if he teaches so as to increase righteousness and the knowledge of the Lord, receive him as the Lord. But concerning the apostles and prophets, act according to the decree of the Gospel. Let every apostle who comes to you be received as the Lord. But he shall not remain more than one day; or two days, if there's a need. But if he remains three days, he is a false prophet. And when the apostle goes away, let him take nothing but bread until he lodges. If he asks for money, he is a false prophet. And every prophet who speaks in the Spirit you shall neither try nor judge; for every sin shall be forgiven, but this sin shall not be forgiven. But not every one who speaks in the Spirit is a prophet; but only if he holds the ways of the Lord. Therefore from their ways shall the false prophet and the prophet be known. And every prophet who orders a meal in the Spirit does not eat it, unless he is indeed a false prophet. And every prophet who teaches the truth, but does not do what he teaches, is a false prophet. And every prophet, proved true, working unto the mystery of the Church in the world, yet not teaching others to do what he himself does, shall not be judged among you, for with God he has his judgment; for so did also the ancient prophets. But whoever says in the Spirit, Give me money, or something else, you shall not listen to him. But if he tells you to give for others' sake who are in need, let no one judge him.

Some of you may not have any idea what a Communications Service Technician does in life. Some of you may not even care. For those who do, the following is a brief description of the kinds of work I am apt to be doing on a given day.
In general, our work starts with a new piece of equipment that needs to be bolted to the floor and cable racking brought to it. This is called iron-work, in the trade. Most bays nowadays are free-standing, that is to say, they are bolted to the concrete floor, usually with four bolts, one at each corner and all the supporting equipment is mounted one way or another to these line-ups of free-standing bays. Let's say this one is a Cisco Router. That is pretty common new equipment. This Bay will be seven feet tall and about two foot square. There may be as many as three routers in a bay, each approximately two foot by two foot. There will be anywhere from a half dozen to 20 cards in each router. The very top portion of the bay is usually a power panel for powering the routers in the bay. We practically always have to bring power in via a designated Power cable rack. Usually nowadays, there will be Fiber Optic. In most cases, that will come in ducts or at least a special fiber cable rack. Then, any copper cables, T-1s, for instance need to come on a Switchboard cable rack. If there is a modem for monitoring service, there will be a single Ethernet cable, Cad-6E with RJ-45 plugs on both ends. In many instances, you will have a single Switchboard Rack with raised horns, front and back for the Fiber and Power to come in separately from the Switchboard cable, but attached to the same rack.
Then we run whatever cable needs to be run. To get T-1s, we go to a Distribution Frame somewhere, usually on lower floors, so, typically, we may have to go across and down vertical racks several floors and then across again to where-ever they are. What we are installing right now, these cables are in the neighborhood of 300 feet long. Usually, we employ four people or more to run cable, as you need assistance to feed it around the tight spots.
Next, they need to be sewed to the rack every 9 inches on the vertical runs and not more then every 18" on horizontal runs, depending upon what type of containment system there is. The Fiber Optic also needs to go down to a Fiber Distribution Frame, also usually on a lower floor. When you sew fiber, each point of contact needs to be wrapped individually with protective sheet fiber before tying. This is like a heavy paper. There must be two layers, or a double wrap of this fiber. Fiber Optic cable also needs to be secured more consistently to protect it. (It's glass, after all.) The Power cable usually goes to a Power Distribution Frame nearby, so the runs are usually much shorter.
The power is always sewed and usually every 18" on the horizontal runs and 9" vertical. Needles to say, we do a lot of sewing. Sewing cable is done using one of several stitches, usually what we call a Kansas City Stitch is a running stitch, where you add cable under the same string and only tie it off when you are done running cable. Since we are only running a few cables anymore, quite commonly, we use another stitch, especially on Power and Fiber, called a Chicago Stitch. This is a single stitch on a single bundle of cable. For instance, if we are running four fiber Optic cables with 12 fibers per cable, all four cables can be placed under a single stitch. On these applications, I usually use a "Double Chicago Stitch", which holds them more securely. Clicking on the Title of this Blog will take you to a Communcations Service Technician, connecting major power in a Verizon Switch in Elgin, Illinois.
The cord we use for sewing is 9-ply waxed rayon, which is very strong and must be cut with a sharp knife or a good pair of scissors. Every Installer carries a belt pouch containing a Power Knife and a pair of scissors. Since I am right-handed, my pouch is always on my right hip and frequently goes with me on vacation, as it has become such a necessity to every day life for me. Since my right hand does the cutting, my left has to take over a lot of the knot tying, and I have become aware lately how that hand is actually my most dexterous. It is usually working blind, that is to say, when the right hand naturally goes for what can easily be seen, the left has to work with that part of the picture more likely out of sight, on the back side, etc. If you are still with me, you might read the Poem this observation has inspired.
After the cable is run and secured, they need to be tested for continuity and the fiber has to produce light at a sufficient level to pass the test we place on it. It is simply amazing to see the red light of a tiny penlight shining out the other end of a 300 foot fiber cable that you know is finer than a human hair inside the protective sheath. Power up the system...now you slide in whatever Circuit Packs are provided, then you plug in your preconnectorized cables and integrate the new system into the existing network, without causing any interruption in service. Then you clean up, and pack up and move on to the next job.

I have been very busy if you havn't been there lately, as well as adding a background sound file, I tweeked the cursor, footer, and have messed with the date archives as well as added popup comments. I will continue adding hot links in the sidebar to the various northup blog's and if you do not see your site drop me a comment. Also there are two search engines active and a list of link adds that pay me to post them so don't be shy about going to the links in the sidebar. Most of them are for free content that you can use in your own blog. And all are 100% adult proofed as in nothing for minors....

Many of you probably know nothing about the Fleischman family at all. My Grandmother Knox, was a Fleischman. Her Father, Carl Ferdinand Charles Edward Fleischman must have been quite a character, from what I have heard. He met his wife, Martha Bertha Krueger in Wausau, Wisconsin, where the Knippels lived out their lives. James has since moved to California, but many of the other Knippels still live there. Charles was born aboard the ship that was bringing his parents to America, and Martha Bertha was born in Prussia. These are Mom's Grandparents, folks. Mom's Mother, Esther Clara Viola Fleischman was born in 1895, the 4th of 10 kids. She died in 1937, less than a year after Mom and Dad got married. Esther's youngest sister, Beatrice was born in 1901 and married Walter Knippel. Her baby, James was born in 1947 and married Kathleen Johnson. As I said, he has recently moved to Califonia. He will be sending me a good deal more information, or I may get it from his older brother, Ray, who still lives in Wausau.

that in RawKnee's case, at least, some of his best
stuff is posted on someone else's Blog, namely mine,
Now there are many others, Beth is doing almost daily
What she posted yesterday is worth reading for anyone
who considers himself a devout Christian.
Her sister, Jo is a devoted Bloggist, who faithully
visits all the blogs, posting amusing comments. Her
BLOG is: http://nesvold.blogspot.com/
Another sista, Faitha, is very devoted, but so far
has not figured it out. She is still fueling around
with it. But before she runs out of gas, I hope she
figures out how to fire up a whole line of very
thought provoking poetry. One of the most gifted but
unhallowed Poet-Writers in the family, capable of
making http://methinkssotoo.blogspot.com/ one of the
most visited BLOGs in the Annals of the Greater
Northup Family. Right now it is almost impossible to
find without one of these Handy, Dandy Links, Ron
Also, there is my Northernma Wife, Donna, Blogging around everyone's Sites, mostly trying to catch up with me, which would be impossible, to be sure. She has just learned how to put up her picture, so you can see her at: http://medonno.blogspot.com/

It's a good thing, because with that Belly of his, he made a mighty poor excuse for a Logger.
One thing I have noticed in the relatively short period of time that I have been a Bloggin'
It really isn't too hard at all, except for the strain on your Noggin'
It's a good thing that we have finally come up with some pretty decent Blogs.
Because my experience up to this point was telling me that we were going to the Dogs.
Reading some of this boring stuff really had me Sawing Logs.
I felt like hacking into their Gears and breaking off their Cogs.
It seems like everyone was missing the whole point of joining someone's Team.
You need to take the time to Blog up someone else's Site, your existence to Redeem.
So now that Blogs are being Plugged up with other people's Poems,
And Lousy Non-Working Links are leading Blogger's to their Homes,
It seems like at least a few of us are Blogging in High Gear.
At least to my way of looking at it, that is how it would appear.
The rest of you need to go to your Dash-Boards and Activate your Members.
So the rest of us can go in there and Create and Dis-Member.
work before. Check back daily for revisions as well.
I am atttempting to do what Uncle Rick has requested.
He has suggested that I put together a daily devotional blurb.
I liked the idea and so decided to give it a whirl.
It will get better I pray. This is the beginning
and things usually get better with time.
Come check it out and tell me what you think.
Leave a comment and tell me what you would
like to see or not see. I plan to make it deeper
and personalized a bit, as time allows.
Come be uplifted at:
The Trott Family Blog
Blessings from above I pray,
Thinking of other Bloggers, staring at their Screen.
What is it you ask me, That motivates my Thought,
The thrill of Dessertation, the stirring of the Pot.
Blogging here Blogging there, it's rather Disjointed,
four solitary comments, by others not Annointed.
Pointed non-ingaugement, trusting in my Skills,
Then hollered at by Rickie, thus agitates my Quills.
I must reply, I must respond, in pensive Disregard,
But coming up with Blog-grade-stuff, I must admit is Hard.
So here, squabble, quibble, dissect it if you Must,
For this attempt has reached it's culmination, the end, a blogiversal Bust.

- Clean the house
- Do the dishes
- Give the girls a bath
- Start a load of laundry
- Blog a letter...
oh the heck with house work I want to blog! We did have a good time and got to go see the new house and find out what has been done. They must have just poured the concrete floor in the garage. The siding and roofing was all done and most of the triming out under the eaves had been completed. it appeared that the electrician had finished most of his work and the ducting for the heating cooling had been almost finished as well. They haven't started tieing the rest of the trim boards to finish off the end walls or carpeting yet, which is probably a good thing as there is so much mud around the house. Nor had they started any of the final work upstairs which they won't untill the electrician and heat-cooling work is finished. The walls are still just 2 by 4 skeletons at this point upstairs while the down stairs is almost move in ready...kinda wierd. I also noticed that there is still some insulation to be done.... I wonder if it is going to be blown in or batting? There is going to be so much storage space in the house which is great! And I still have to figure out how I will handle getting a new garage put up and where. When we sold our house the new people said we should take down the pool and bring it with us so I will need to get started on that as well. so much to do..
took very few pictures more of a last minute thing but will post them when we have them. Anyhow dad it was great to have you down and look forward to our next get together. I am still hopeing to get down some time this spring after we have moved into the house. hmm this blog needs a photo but I suppose this will have to do.
ok back to work you all enjoy your Hog-wild weekend and have fun!

Another guy took the buy-out, went in to turn in his tools, pick up his severance pay and say, "Good-Bye!", they told him, "We got bad news...You're staying four more months. They need you in New York City." So he is there now. Today, they told him he is off roll on March 15. Go figure. They spent the money to send him out there and back in addition. It's crazy.
They are sending everybody who isn't either here or New York City to Portland, Ore. They are working 7 eights out there. Maybe I should tell them that's where I want to go. All I have to do is say the word, I am done in Ohio, and that is where I would go.
In another vein, The guy who has been my Supervisor down here says they are probably going to need him back in St Lewis and I may be working for the Supervisor whom I really was working for all along. He was just sent down here to help her out because she had so much going. She is just a young gal and really doesn't have the Moxy for some of what they are wanting her to do, but they are primarily trying to cut costs, so they are letting go the top paid people and keeping the ones with less experience.
In one sense, this is good news for me, as it will give us a great deal of control here as Installers. Since she doesn't know a thing about what we are doing, we will make the calls. What it amounts to, we will be doing the part of working Supervision, which is a direction they have wanted it to go. I have always been pretty much in that category, as they appreciate my experience and let me run things my way, but now about all I will be looking to Melissa for is to make sure they drop the materials at the next place. In fact, they might even give that to us, as well. I have to send her my time for the week, but she has no way of knowing how I am really spending my time, so she has to take my word for everything. I will order tools and supplies as needed and send her the bill. In fact, they may give me a credit card, and a cell phone. I have been racking up some bills already including 'Phone calls from the Motel, so I think I will ask her for a Cell, to "Cut Costs".
This is all a part of the way Lucent is doing business since the competition has gotten so fierce in the wake of the terrible decline post 9-11. All the little co-locaters we were installing have fallen by the wayside. Bigger companies are getting swallowed up by their little brothers, as you can see if you go to the INQIT Site I linked to in the Title Page, as I mentioned in my first paragraph.
Happy surfing all you Telecom BLOGgers.

I wasn't going to but dad was so amazed at the sight of this jpg that I decided to write about it.
It makes a great background image for your desktop and reminds me so much of home in northern Minnesota. I remember spending many evenings staring at the dancing lights and stars beyond. There just isn't a better place in the world to see them or the stars that I have ever in my days seen. The air was so clear and un"blogged" by light from the busy cities. As well there was something clean about the air in minnesota that I have not found elsewhere. Growing up I spent a lot of time roaming the woods and there was a piticular night that this photo brings to mind where I had fallen asleep in the woods staring and listening to the sounds of the wind in the tree's and walking home through the woods I noticed the light in the sky giving me just enough to see the sparse deer trail befor me. I remember feeling at home and right with the world that evening. This picture just brings it all back.

I decided to edit Donna's post, just to show her what can be done, once she figures out what to do with it. Since this is us dancing, it made me think of Billy's Wedding. I decided to link the Photo to Faith's Photo Album, even though this picture was not taken at Billy's Wedding. Faith's Photo Album is not so completely done as some of the others, so bear with me on this. I need to create separate pages for Billy and Amanda, at least and put Faith's Page under Judy. That has not been done yet. One step at a time. This is TheBlogger, editing Donna's Post.

We will be working in Steubenville in a few short weeks, when we are done in Wellsville and East Liverpool. I still haven't figured out the meaning of the East part, as it suggests there is a Liverpool to the West, but there isn't, and E. Liverpool is on the West side of the river. Another puzzling town I have not yet figured out is called Shadyside, and doesn't that suggest there must be a Sunnyside, as well?? Well, there isn't and naturally, following the Upper Ohio pattern, Shadyside seems to me to be on the sunny side of the River, being on the NorthWest side of the river and would catch the bright morning to noon sun, but maybe it is because in the hot afternoon, it would be the shady side.
Now, as many of you know from my Sunday Post, I went down the river on Saturday as far as Galiopolis and through on 141 to Northup, Ohio, where I visited the cemetary. I found out that things get a little better further South, but up here where I am at, this is poor man's country. I don't really know where main-stream USA is, but it is not the Upper Ohio River Valley. This place is poor. It would be cliche to say they are too poor to leave, but I know for a fact they are too poor to tear down their old run-down houses. As I said to Rick Friday, who works with me, if you went up and down the street and tried to figure out which one out of ten you ought to try and save, you would be hard-pressed to make that decision. They all gotta go.
This really tells you something about that Catholic Chaplain I was telling you about earlier who wanted to serve the parrish here and in Youngstown rather than retiring after 20 years in the Air Force to some nice place like Florida or Southern California, or even maybe Katy, Texas.
At any rate, I want you all to know, that I think I have figured out my purpose in life. It is to BLOG my very controversial opinions all over the Internet to whoever wants to chime in and give me their opposing opinions. Anything is fair game. When I do my observing, I am going to make some mental notes and when I come home to BLOG, I am going to tell it as I see it, and I will promise to read and respond to anything you post. I may choose to delete a few obnoxious remarks, like the one from the guy Argus, who thought Gary's picture was funny. I LOVE that picture of Cousin, Gary. BLOG You, Argus!!
I know there are people out there who agree with me, too. I think Bill Maher agrees with me pretty much. He is an unabashed Liberal. I think I am an Abashed Liberal. At any rate, if you agree with me, to Heck with all those others guys you think you might offend, tell me about it. I wanna hear it, even if they don't.
I'll tell you something said the younger blogger boy of foolish intent...but you might not want to here it.
But I got to chat with dad about a lot of nonsense and started the whole blogging thing, which lead into a future visit and then april joined in and we chatted...she fixed my print problem and didn't know that she had. hmmm.....
any way the point is wether blogging is silly or just a new angle on chatting it works.
so blog That
The Infamous as he thinks he is.....NorthRockHead
p.s. thought for the day......is chatting online better than chatting on the phone?

This is really taking off. I see now where Larry was readintg some e-mails and decided to give it a try. He went to my latest BLOG about all the Northups there are buried at the town of Northup, Ohio, and decided to start his own BLOG-Spot. As usual, in the Northup Family BLOG, you can go to the title of the day's BLOG and Instantly, you will be transferred over to another BLOG-Site. In this case, Larry's NorthRockHead BLOG-Spot.
The most fascinating thing about the whole issue is this...Larry was sitting there on the Computer, BLOG-ging, and along comes Allison to look over his shoulder! She gets a look at my BLOG and decides to get on there herself. So along with 17 other Comments, one of them is from her and she is inviting me to Virginia for a visit some week-end, probably, this next one coming. Maybe I'll get to meet my new grand-daughter.
Naturally, when I got done reading the 18 comments, I had to go to both RawKnee and Hard Rock's BLOGs to see what they had going and added in a couple comments of my own. I see where Ron has loaded some of his pictures to his BLOG, besides his Pansy face, and I hear he did it using this "Hello" and "Picasa" thingy. I got that, too and I am on here BLOG-ging away and all of a sudden I got a window open and here it is Larry hollering at me on the Yahoo Chat-Line, so we got the "Hello" open, added him to my list and we visited back and forth for half an hour until he had to change "The Girls" I hope he didn't change them into boys. I know there were times I was tempted to see if I couldn't change a couple of the girls. But not for the better, as they always were the best there is.

I'm sure by now you all know that RawKneePee is a BLOGger, but did you know he has his own BLOG?? It's incredible. Everyone I know is BLOGging these days!!!
Once again, if you want to go to RawKnee's BLOG, Click on the Title of this BLOG.
I think somehow what we have to do is make all the people with their own BLOGs to get on the Team with all the others. I think that is how it works the best but I can't really figure out how it is done.
On the other hand, I have been at this for four days now and I even have a picture on my Profile of me and Ron BLOGgong together. Who else has that??

Still no answers to any of my BLOGs. I will invite the e-mail Group to peruse it soon and see if they want to join.
When I am done with that, I head for E. Liverpool, just across the Ohio/West Virginia line. It is less than 40 miles from Pittsburg on U.S. 30. We took the van we will be using down there today and continued over to Columbus to get some tools calibrated.
I will post tomorrow with my new address and Telephone Number.

I have created this BLOG as an Alternative BLOG for the greater Northup Family to get together and share thoughts and ideas without plugging up the various e-mails. This has been started as an Alternative to the Northup Family Group on Yahoo, created by the same Author. I am TheBlogger, usually known as TheGrabber on Yahoo. This BLOG is open to the General Public, however I will require Users to maintain a certain amount of sensitivity to younger Northup Family Members. Thank You for your consideration. Please feel free to join our BLOG.
