Thanks to everyone who clued me in on how to block those aggravating spammers. I just emptied my spam box of more than 500 of the things, but since I followed your advice, there hasn't been a single one!

  9. Removing the water tower did not take long, but we did not stay to watch the whole process. It might have been half a day's work. The crew were complete professionals and knew exactly what they were doing. I thought the process was worth documenting.
