An old friend, who lived with the Goldsteins for a little while, recently posted this picture on his Facebook page. It's Silver House, where Lisa, Gavriel, and kids were living when I first moved here. It was in a hollow to the right of the road into Silver Cove (part of the AMS campus). You can see Falcon House (which would have been recently constructed) in the background, just to the left of the roof. Silver (which sported the longest horizontal stovepipe I've ever seen) has been gone for years. I think the fire department got to burn it for practice, but I might be wrong about that.

This is the cob pizza oven built last weekend by Tom, Gred, and company. Cob, as you may know, has nothing to do with corn cobs; it's a mixture of clay, sand, straw, dirt and water. I can't wait to help fire it up and make some pies. Oddly, the clay class at Penland built a little oven the same day this was built.
Tammy found this really nice time-lapse video of a nice cob oven going up in Costa Rica. It shows the process quite well.
