Hope this comes out better. These pics are of a Cistern being made deeper. It's at my wife's lake house. Dumb move building a house and digging a Cistern on the top of a ridge that's 90 feet higher than the lake water, when the lake had water in it. Now the water is a half mile from the house and not enough in the well to even take a shower.

The dude in the white ball cap does the digging, other guy works the "elevator".

Me and the Toyota are spectators.

Did I mention the well is already 45 feet deep, that's four and a half stories deep. This was last Friday and I haven't been back.

More later on how things turned out!

I would think  the casing to be deeper than what I see at the rim of the well.  

     I've read of well diggers building the casing first, a section at a time- say 5 -10 feet high on top, then digging just under the bottom lip( evenly, of course) so that the casing settles downward of it's own weight as the well is dug.

  Easy to say, not so easy to do.

Don't have a clue Swamp. A load of people on this lake are without water. 

The one pic of the Toyota sitting on the top of the ridge where my patch is, three years ago the water would be about axle deep. 

That's interesting WH, never had a clue that's how they do it. Supposed to go back tomorrow but it got postponed until Fri. I'll 

check it out.

If that is original casing then it probably just looks small----as they dig deeper to WT they may just be dumping dirt as they go, building up around rim.

    They did that when the built my septic tanks at chacara.

   Hey Don---those islands must really be getting exposed now.

My grand father lived on the side of a lake in upstate N.Y.   If you flushed the toilet twice mud would start showing up in the water.  Funny well not so funny part was the Basement was full of water up to the floor joist.

The Contagious Laughter In This Train Will Have You Laughing Your Head Off As Well
 
When you think of riding the subway, laughter and joy aren’t the first words that spring to mind.  It’s a cramped place full of grumpy people either coming home from a bad day at work or are just generally upset.  Yet if you’re lucky enough, sometimes you can find happiness in a subway train.
 
One such magical moment was captured when a Belgian advertising agency working for Coco-Cola hired an actor to randomly start laughing on the train.
 
With the tagline–“Happiness starts with a smile”– their new ad aims to bring a bit of joy to everyone’s day.  Just watch and we dare you not to let out a small giggle, too!
 
I have to admit, it was really contagious!
 
Sound on?
