From Planet Ice to Planet Fire - California is getting the best of both worlds.
Speaking of worlds - only ONE photo here is "Photoshopped" (i.e. digitally altered) . . .
Reality is stranger than fiction. . . believe it.

As of today, the exterior layer of the Earthbag Super-Adobe Moon Dome is complete. Finished. Finito!
It took 10 days with the help of Pappa Taco, and next i will add a door, a floor, and paint the interior the color "pearl-fucking-white".
Along the way in this warm wet climate these little Mushees popped out for 48 hours then *poof* gone.
The animals still never helped out:
. . . but they sure were entertaining.

Holy Domocile Detective Derk!
Progress is shuttling this little Dome Home along quickly.
First step to making it to the last one - add roofing-tar, which helps seal the Dome.
Then ad the reptile roofing (i.e. the final plaster layer)
Then take a break cause the dogs are in the way of work . . .
No really, that's all folks.

Actually, it IS hawaii.
Like Tom Cruise said in the film Collateral, sometimes we have to adapt and change with the circumstances presented.
My circumstances leave me with a new ticket to Brazil in January 2014 and the meantime presents me with the present combination of earthbaggin' and fruit harvesting.
Zack mows the law near the bee hives and i check the oil-tray traps:
Also, giving the goat his daily shots of penicilin:
watch BILLY the goat in action:
Zack has two hot pepper bushes that are almost 2 meters tall so i harvested a hat-full and made a hot chili water, a vinegar sauce, a mango chili sauce, and lastly a flippin' tasty Harissa Spread with roasted carrots, pine nuts and chilis:
Z-Town is sighting in a great looking pellet rifle but in actuality - a horrible peice of crap:
