I've decided to go through chronologically for the details.  Mainly because that is how I have it in my journal and how I'm uploading the pictures.  This way breaks up some sites thought, like the national gallery which I went to 3 time to see it all.

Friday the 12th of September account

Well the first order of business once getting out was to find the Hard Rock Cafe. It was around the corner literally from the hotel so we had food covered, and very well too.

Well I have been neglectful of keeping this updated.  Mainly from working on the kitchen itself.  I found the root cause of the entire situation. It is what I thought.  A leaking drain pipe.

 Pipe That Caused The Issue

 This pipe broke in two when I pulled it out.  It was missing a bit on the bottom at the break.

Kitchen demolition and floor reconstuction:

Of course the kitchen has taken first priority here, even over updating the web site.   You would understand if you've ever seen that look in your wife's eyes of panic when she looks at her kitchen, and see stuff (dirt) that should reside out side of the house, in the middle of the floor.  This really translates to unwanted critters with/or without legs could get in the house.  So now you understand the haste needed on this project. 

 Well enough of my worries here is the picture progress so far.  Last you saw I had taken a peak at the damage. Just removed one cabinet and part of the floor to revile the source.  The drain pipe has had a small leak for a long time.  It must have increased in the last few months to show there was a problem.  I pealed back the floor and some more cabinets to see the extent of the damage.   

 Ouch kitchen water damage

First installment of the big field trip.

 I just got back from London.  Oh man, what great things they have. First that what we consider old in almost contemporary there.  OK, not really it's just amazing how much more history is there than here. Our oldest buildings and such is just a branch off of Britain's tree.  Though today's world is a different story for another time, lets stick to history. 

Here is the first view of England from the plane.
