    Too much of that wacky weed? Or is it blueberry wine?
  2. I see David Martin is spamming us with links to a pest control company.

    Aluminum Wire

    When Momma is cooking Thanksgiving dinner and using all the burners and the oven at the same time, a breaker tripping or wire overheating can be a big inconvenience.

    Aluminum Wire

    You wire is OK for the breaker but is 40 Amps adequate for the range. Some ranges require 50 Amps. https://www.cerrowire.com/ampacity-charts

    Huh, I note that I was recently blocked for trying to link a YouTube video about glass in fireplaces. Links don't work so well here anymore. Wonder what changed.
  6. For you, Jim. That's very likely true. But, I think that depends on who does the pre-listing inspection. Someone like you, or Joe the new guy, or Jim the quickie guy.
  7. You're actually supposed to use an extended tip lighter to light it, not throw a match on top of it, though I guess a match thrown on top would probably also work. This video will educate you about fireplaces with fireglass. Well, I was going to link a YouTube video about H Burners and fireglass but keep getting a 403 Forbidden error when I do so. Have to look it up online yourself. "How to Install an H-Burner and Fire Glass in Your Fireplace".
  8. I use a Ricoh WG-50. Has the light ring built in for macro shots. Carry it in a belt pouch with a lanyard around my neck. Simple one handed photo operation. Has a decent optical zoom and digital zoom. Had it for a few years now. https://www.amazon.com/Ricoh-WG-30W-Digital-Camera/dp/B00OAP5Y34/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1524943768&sr=8-6&keywords=ricoh+wg-30

    Wacky Roof Shingles

    Here's an example of a wacky shingle installation I ran into a few days ago. https://b4uclose.com/roof-shingle-installation-gone-wacky/
  10. One of the methods for data labels in a darker environment is to back off the camera a little then use the zoom to get in on the label. Keeps the flash from washing out the label.

    Asymmetrical roof valley

    Pictures? Sounds like water running down the steeper pitch is getting up under the shingles on the low slope, past the flashing. Consider a W flashing to eliminate that.
  12. I guess I just don't have artistic sense. After you show us the picture, I can clearly see the art in it. Before, while I might see the same dang thing, I don't see the art until after YOU photograph it.

    Happy DST day

    Not very busy if all they're doing is moving forward. Spring forward Fall back One thrust a year!
  14. You find art in the strangest places! I'd look at that in real and see nothing. I look at it in your photo and find art.

    I don't see it as an explosion risk, just sewer gas stinking up the bathroom. May depend on which way the wind is blowing.
