07:48 am - TBS Sukkah Building Help
So I'm officially out of the picture for helping with sukkah building at TBS this year. I'm going to be in Salt Lake City Utah Tuesday - Thursday so if you can pitch in for an hour or two next Tuesday night or Wends night, I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated.

12:09 am - noise rant
My bed room sits underneath the exhaust system for the downstairs restaurant. There's always been a hum from it but 10 months ago they decide to replace the roof. I had thought for my $2400 assessment the place would get quieter instead, the vibrations have gotten much worse.
The equipment goes on between 7-8 am, and off between 11-12 pm. Occasionally it hits a resonant frequency with the window springs or my dishes or the racks in the microwave and they make some noise. The rest of the time I effectively have a ceiling that's been turned into a large subwoofer. I can't hear the noise since it's so low freq, but I can feel it.
A friend recently lent me a sound meter and it measured large sections of my bedroom at >88 db(c) Which is like a diesel truck going by 12 hrs a day. 85 db is an osha limit in the work place, greater then that you're supposed to have ear protection.
Last week I presented these numbers to the management Co, not really sure if they are responsible for the machinery or the restaurant. I'm waiting to hear back... and trying to figure out if I should approach the restaurant directly, should I threaten to go to the city.. should I just go to the city. They might be far outside the allowable noise amounts. I don't particularly like picking a fight, but 20% of my home is unpleasant to be in 16 hours of the day.

08:00 pm - Shavuot help
Here for shavuot? I'm looking for some folks to shop and cook for the tikkun, the tikkun is thursday night, hoping to cook Wednesday night and thursday, candle lighting is about 8 so there's probably room for folks that don't work 9-5 and a post work shift. Which means probably shopping monday and tues nights.
I think Lee is trying to get an early morning head count, and we're looking for potential teachers.

After a day in London, I'm now in Drammen, There's sunlight, it's just low on the horizon. it's warmer here then in boston, I'm as far north as Juno, but it's warmer then the northeast! The snow boots were definitely overkill.
