So, what could you have done differently to protect yourself? Looking back, what were the warning signs that you missed?

The latest Lenox hacksaw. Seemed sweet the first couple of times I used it, then a little eyebolt on the tensioning linkage broke. My main supplier tells me that they are having several returns a week with them.

Walk in with your head up.

I have beat a nicotine addiction, and I am proud of that. Not proud that I got addicted, but definitely proud that I managed to beat it.

Same goes for your situation.

Happy for you!

My old boss thought they were the cat's ass, and being as he was my main teacher coming up, I thought so too.

Then came the time I had to cut out a ceiling, then cut into the 3' long piece of 3" pipe that had the clog after the twin ell. Piss running down your arm has a way of changing your perspective.

I hate twinells & sancrosses, and I am not even really fond of double wyes.

Not really, but I thought about buying a single QuickPic on my way home from a job.

Funny, I just got in from running one for the last 3 or 4 hours.

We live on a pretty sizable piece of property, with lots of trees, fences, and a pretty steep embankment along the road. So when it is mowing/bushhooging time, it gets a serious workout. That 3 or 4 hours I mentioned isn't a complete mowing cycle, there is probably another 1 1/2 or so left to go. And this is hard running, sometimes in heavy weeds, getting hung in fence wire, and I run it until the gas or the string runs out. It has been doing this at least 10 years, with nothing more than sparkplugs, filters, and one carburetor rebuild.

It is a Stihl. When this one dies, I will go right out and buy another one.

It is starting to get tempermental about starting, I might need to change the plug.

It's not the salt per say its the other metals in the soil. Copper alone in salt water is very durable but if it is the salt with a metal that is more noble (more durable ) then copper it will then corrode faster then the noble metal. The connectsions in car wiring are where the two metals meet and one or the other will corrode faster then the other copper developes a protective film (green tarnish ) this keeps it from corroding A anode bag is made of a less noble metal and will corrode faster then the more noble metal like copper or steel. When it is attached to a more noble metal the bag Carey's the current away from the copper. Some bags are made of magnesium and when installed require that you wet the soil this helps to begin the carry of the current to the bag

So it's not that copper is eatin away by salt but that ther is a metal in that soil that is more noble then copper

Copper has been used on the hulls of wooden ships to protect them for years and also used in naval ship yards

Zinc is placed on ships now near the prop to rott away before the bronze prop does. It acts as an anode bag for the bronze and has to be replaced

And who has been giving you spelling lessons?

Or are you paying another member to edit your posts before you publish? :P

Summer has finally hit the northeast. A/C service calls are rolling in. Put the recovery machines and vacuum pumps back into the vans. Boats in the lake, bow is packed away till early September. And the wife has a list of outdoor chores she would like me to waste every weekend to accomplish. That or someone has invited us to a wedding, cookout, or kids b-day party I could really care less about attending. When I would much rather be floating on the lake with a [b]Sierra Nevada pale ale[b] in hand.

Not a bad beer, not a bad beer at all.

Same phone I have, that thing takes a real beating without a whimper.

 Post subject: Graduation night
Posted: Fri May 31, 2013 4:43 pm 

Heading out in an hour to watch my son graduate from high school.

I have been kind of nonchalant about it, but now that it is here, I am getting a bit sentimental. Proud of him, Honors, Advanced Placement classes, isn't a little thug. He has come a long way from the defiant, angry little boy I met 14 1/2 years ago.

Cliff note version: It is my birthday, I am drinking 22 oz of extremely strong, hoppy, bitter, kick ass beer, and not being able to post pictures while half drunk is the only fly in the beer. More protein is better, right?

Nothing works better for me than a glass of makers and a good cigar on a warm sunny day. After an hour outside, I feel like a million bucks. Perfect ending to a week. What do you all do to unwind after a weeks work? Bonus question for bourbon drinkers, what's your favorite bourbon?
Smelling a good cigar is the ONLY thing that ever makes me regret kicking the nicotine habit.

It makes me feel like, like.....

well, like......

a quitter.

You have drank at least double what I have, and you are still standing?

I have this lovely little Milwaukee angle grinder. I swear at that effing guard every time I use it. But the guard is still there. I want it to be in the way when I get stupid and try to cut my hand in half.

I love me some quality time on the dirt wrench. There was a joke going around about how I gave my shovels names. We held a funeral service for the last one that died.
