The Moz was bufalo. the flour was KA bread. The herb pizza was what they called foccacia style in Gaeta IT. I don't know who those kids are, they keep walking around my house and eatting my food.

I agree on the just remortar the fallen brick; i just have nighmares of it all falling down. Not sure how a single brick of the arch fell out and the rest of the arch didn't come down. I'm really concerned about when I add the rest of the chimminey weight.

first time i have worked with metal studs. getting the hang of it.

James, (or any other master masons)

What do you think?
Clean off the mortar, put on fresh mortar and try again?
use some kinda of high temp epoxy?
put it back and wedge it in with a little sheet metal?

cying in my beer.

I second the motion. Soak the brick and dampen the two other bricks, butter it with mortar and stick it in there.

Ordered some Italian live Yeast from sourdo.com.
Made a proof box and grew some new friends.
Also got a 55lb bag of Caputo 00 Pizza flour.
Can't wait to try this crust.

Looks great!

Is that a pickleball court or tennis?
