Well in that case maybe have something to eat and wait a little bit before opening the next bottle. Maybe keep some Excedrin nearby.

Lucky you. I used to be like that too. Now hangovers sometimes last 2 days and have become a big deterrent. But... I am nowhere near 108 lbs. so it takes a lot of liquor to get there.

Problem 1: I have an outside hose bib for washing the car that has plumbed in hot and cold water taps. I've realized I can't really use that hot of water because it will melt the rubber gaskets, and the hoses/pressure washer I use clearly state don't use hot water.

Problem 2: Arms full of groceries walking up to my car and realize it isn't one of my vehicles that has the touchless foot wave sensor to open the trunk.

I'll never forget a joke that Kevin Nealon said on a podcast that cracked me up. During the California wildfires, he was so put out that it left the thinnest layer of ash on his 5 series BMW.

I never come close. Still, it doesn't seem to affect anything.

I can get pretty close (950+ Mbps) when sitting in my office with my laptop plugged directly into the modem / router.

The plates for the new X3 came in a week. Anyone know what size the bolts are for the frame? I'm NOT going to give free advertisement for my dealer, so no frame. Want to put bolts in the bottom 2 holes. Since they didn't mount the front ( ) I can't scrounge them from there.

I'm living in a house with no running water today, with a porta-potty on the front lawn in the snow. Adding insult to injury, one of the faucet hose fittings in the bathroom vanity snapped off when our plumber tried to remove the hose. With any luck, we may have running water tonight...although I booked the porta-potty (premium, with sink and flushing toilet) for tomorrow as well just in case.....

What did I miss? What happened, a pipe froze while you were away. Hope you're back to normal soon.

Our well water is sooooooo nasty that it eats through copper pipes. We have 1-3 pipe ruptures every year, all of them on long horizontal runs in the basement. Around the holidays, a vertical pipe in the wall of our laundry room popped, making a mess of the sheetrock and sub-flooring. We cut/capped both pipes in the basement, and have been living without a washing machine since late December.

I was so upset with the pipes being eaten alive by the water that I booked a plumber to rip out every shred of copper pipe in our entire house and replace it with PEX (plastic) tubing. My scope of work included a central plastic distribution manifold with individual shutoff valves, and each faucet run to one of those manifold valves with no splices whatsoever between the manifold and faucet connector. The plumber that I chose to do the job thought that I was crazy to rip out copper when he was quoting the project, but saw first hand this morning why I did it when he snapped the bathroom sink valve off trying to disconnect the faucet hose with his bare hands.

Anyway, since it was a long-planned project, I had a few weeks of lead time to order a high end porta-potty with flushing toilet and a sink. I'm hoping that they will be done in an hour or so, but have the porta-potty for another day just in case it runs into tomorrow.....
