    Ah, but she then knows where it is! As turned out to be the case just now. Looking for the neutral block to attach a 3/0 neutral to a ground/neutral bar in my service panel. She knew right where it was 'cause she'd put it there!

    Of course, the damn thing might as well have stayed lost - even though its made by Cutler-Hammer for a Cutler-Hammer panel, the mounting screw is the wrong size...

    Just use a self tapping screw. It will work just ask me how I know.

    I've seen the video of Trump's meeting with the North Korean dictator. He forgot to bow and apologize for America.  How can he expect to accomplish anything like that? :D :D

    Sock that spare money in the retirement fund. It will grow while you're making more to put in there.

    The 3/0 inter-panel neutral has now been installed. Thank Goddess - that concludes the 3/0 work on this project!

    It doesn't work that way in my house.  My wife has a habit of moving things and later not only does she not remember where she moved it to, she doesn't remember moving it at all!  ........until I find it, then she goes "Oh yeah!  I remember moving it now."  facepalm smiley

    Yards/lawns. Another one of those holes you shovel money into endlessly. FWIW, I have Zoysia grass in my front yard that sees a LOT of shade during the day. It was set out as sprigs a long time ago. It's thicker than hair on a dog's back, is drought resistant, seems to be VERY shade tolerant, and spreads more and more each year. It's so thick that it chokes out most everything but a little clover here and there, and the occasional dandelion.
    I've never heard of zoysia grass.  Is there any chance the stuff will grow in the Sonora Desert here where I live?  Burmuda does well here if given enough water, something that is in short supply unless it rains.
    Sort of doubt it would grow in a desert climate. It needs regular water, which is no problem here in East TN. The rain takes pretty good care of that part. I have never watered it, and won't water it. The spring branch that runs between the yard and the road seems to supply all the water it needs even during long periods of no rain.

    Not much grows in a desert climate without the addition of regular watering. I'd see if some of the native grasses that do grow there would be an alternative to the water dependent stuff that is used for lawns.
    Every year I have to get rid of the elephant grass that comes up in my yard. 

    Nice crop of rocks there . It would be tough to cut that lawn.
    The proper tool for the job is a weed wacker.  BTW, that's not my yard in the photo, as I've already wacked the "lawn" in it.  The photo is from a couple of mountain ranges over near where I grew up.

    Nearly 4 hours to change a power steering belt on a front wheel drive car. That's crazy but I got it done.
    Was it one of those sideways mounted (transverse) engines? If so, you did it pretty quick! :D

    Good form

    Yes it was one of them sideways mounted ones. Took the tire and the inner fender well out just to get to it. Once I got the tensioner screw loose the bracket was froze up. After a little TLC with a crow bar and a BFH it finally moved enough to get the new belt on. And yes the wench did help me a few times. :D

    Well, the insurance company and the auto body shop have come to an agreement and the insurance company will be paying the body shop directly.  I have an appointment to drop the truck off Monday morning.

    I guess I'm not the only one experiencing that. Last fall I decided to redo the fence chargers with a different type of insulator and I had to order the corner insulators that I wanted to use. When I was installing the insulators, I couldn't find the bag of corner insulators and Debbie claimed that she had never seen them and didn't even know what they looked like so I had to order them again. Last week I dropped a screwdriver in the guest room and it bounced under the bed and when I reached under the bed, I found a bag of fence insulators. We'll never know how they got there but I'll bet Debbie had something to do with it.

    I’m currently blatantly copying a product (for personal use) because I have tools and skills. And trying something new on the mill.  
    Painters tape on each part, super glue in between. Allows access to all but one surface, and holds like a hot damn from the videos I’ve watched. I’m currrently waiting for the glue to chooch before I start cutting. It was glued at an angle to the X axis  could have rotated the vice, but since I was gluing it, figured I’d save the adjustment. Angle isn’t totally critical anyway. 
    In reality, I’d have already been done had I simply bandsawed and sanded it. But, I would not learn anything that way.

    Wednesdays are normally my day off and today was no exception.  We're looking at remodeling the master bed/bath, doing siding and windows and finally finishing the "finished" basement... so there truly no such thing as a day off.  Now, even on my sleep in days, I'm out of bed before six.  I like the peace, quiet, and solitude of mornings when I don't have anywhere to be and all sorts of time to get there.  Anyhow, that also happens to be the best time to finish any chores that hasn't been completed the previous day... so I decided is do some laundry.  Well, (as usual) someone (the girl child, as usual, lol) had put clothes in the dryer and left them there for the next sucker (me) to take care of.  While putting her clothes into a basket, I came across some underwear that no dad would ever approve of. Crotchless!! 🤤 The coffee hadn't kicked in yet and good judgement had yet to make an appearance, so I headed upstairs to hand this particular problem to the Mrs.  She calmly let me have my say, and then explained to me that the article in question was, in fact, NOT crotchless underwear... it was a sport bra.  What I thought was a waistband instead is the band that keeps things under cover.

    I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure I heard Mrs CGG mutter "moron" under her breath as I headed back down stairs. 




    That’s excellent. Most excellent.

    Finally. Got my new AC system installed in my house. Me and the misses started about 5 when we got home. New condenser, coil and copper set. I hate soldering 7/8ths copper when there is no way around putting 4 elbows in it. I also HATE crawling under my house. I don't mind crawling under yours but despise mine. :D Just sat down. Hope I don't have a leak come tomorrow.
