He's posted lengthy treatises on the merits/falsehoods of various eyeglass options... I can't get the RP search function to work, but ... the answer is here somewhere. Maybe someone else can link it up; I'm on vacation! Working on the mother-in-law's sprinkler system! Yes that's the same thing! Vacation=Plumbing, didn't you know? Last Saturday we were staying at a friend's house in Oakland and we returned from a day in The City to learn that a small project had turned into an all-dayer with the water off until he could get some pipes replaced. So last Saturday I was plumbing on vacation, today I'm plumbing on vacation...

All she wants is another 27" flat LED monitor to replace the second 24" monitor so she will work with two 27" flat LED monitors.

Am doing my best to convince her that she will have more de facto real estate to arrange documents and data banks.  Not working so far.  I even told her that none of the components are made in Republican states.....

Cracked the first ' C' reed(draw) on my 'G'  scale 10 hole Suzuki Promaster diatonic harmonica. Now I have to order reed plates. Dangit...

Didn't know that was possible. That's some sucking right there boy...

Put a two way valve on an outdoor tap so I could hook up the hand sprayer hose and a sprinkler. Cool, now I don't need to turn off the water at the tap. So I was filling the horse water from another two way tap and when I turned it off the valve by the hand sprayer exploded. Remind self to look up prevention of water-hammer. {#Fire}
