March 15, 2001   It is warming a bit; the grass is greening up. Top: trying out a new contraption to cut the foam from panel areas we had cutoff. A 400 watt stove heating element; bent and fitted to a slingshot handle with a switch. It was way too slow. A brisk wind would cool it to being almost useless. Bottom: flipping a panel. The backhoe was a '66 model but it worked great for what we needed.
