        There's never enough time for it all, is there? :-) I've got a list
of things to do that's ridiculous.

        I don't have faxing set up at the house yet (but I should get off
my duff and do so... ;^) ) although you can fax my office. 831-460-3199

Or, you could mail it to:

                               Patrick Salsbury
                             309 Cedar Street #23C
                             Santa Cruz, CA 95060

        It was a Cathedralite dome-kit. 35' on a 3.5' riser wall. It's up
on pylon-type or pier-type "stilts" so that it has a crawlspace underneath,
and didn't make much impact on the ground.
