"Cinder block" has not been in production since the 1970's......
Thanks for the heads up. We just call them gray blocks around here, I am not sure why I decided to write down cinder blocks. I was somewhat in a conversation with my father, he stills calls them cinder block....I don't see a problem with it though..

True, it might be important to get the correct name on something worth more than this project.

8x16 wide footing located below frost is sufficient. Tie some rebar in and dura wall and you're golden.
Thank you for mature response.
