  1. It happens about once every two or three years with the tv/sound bar in the master bedroom. For that reason, I keep them unplugged. I try not to think about that happening to the cooktop/oven. The cooktop is a dial type control but oven is touch control which I don't trust.
  2. The power probably went out and came back on quickly with a surge (1 or 2 seconds max out). Sometimes that does strange things to electronics (and appliances) such as turn them on without anyone manually operating them. Most of the time, the power isn't out long enough to have to reset clocks or other programming so you never notice that the power was out.
  3. Must have been the rich Corinthian Leather that helped them.
  4. Christmas breakfast was as almost as big a deal as the Christmas dinner itself. Now I'm hungry again.
  5. Bacon and eggs. Sausage and eggs, Ham and eggs. Meat and potatoes, no one ever says potatoes and meat. One exception to the rule is Dr. Seuss - Green Eggs and Ham by Sam I Am.
  6. I can't remember if it was Hurricane Elena or a no name Low that came out of the Gulf in the Fall/Winter (after or before official hurricane season) but I replaced the receptacles in a house located on salt water that was flooded. It was owned by the original owner/builder of the house...a legit, multi-generational Floridian. Due to the number of dwellings that were flooded, I had worked on three or four same type replacements prior to his. He was the only one that wasn't in either a 'tizzy' or a 'snit' over the flooding. He was just sitting there on his front porch in a lawn chair. After a little conversation, he said "Just replace the ones below the watermark." I did. It wasn't a big house, maybe 800 sq. ft., so there were about 20 various devices to replace. When I finished up, I added up the bill, presented it to him and told him "Out of all the calls related to the storm, you are the only one that's been calm." He said "Son, when you live on the water...sooner or later, you live in the water."
  7. I always check my tickets on a Florida Lotto scanner on the counter of the store that I buy my tickets at. The store owner has NEVER tried to cheat me. I check them because sometimes I didn't "read" them right and either won a larger prize or didn't win what I thought I did. There were several places around here that are now banned from selling Lotto tickets of any kind due to them cheating the customer's out of their winnings. Both places were owned by the same Sikh owners and clerks.
  8. And I-75 in Georgia...just like they were for the last brood 34 years ago.
  9. I wish it included plywood, chainsaws, water and the like...it doesn't. It does include the items below and some pet supplies. Still a good gesture to make people get somewhat prepared for what looks to be a busy hurricane season. Thanks for the post Linn Here’s what it includes: Self-powered lights of $40 or less. Portable self-powered radio, two-way radio or weather-band radio of $50 or less. A tarpaulin or other flexible waterproof sheeting with a sales price of $100 or less. An item normally sold as, or generally advertised as, a ground anchor system or tie-down kit with a sales price of $100 or less. A gas or diesel fuel tank with a sales price of $50 or less. A package of AA-cell, AAA-cell, C-cell, D-cell, 6-volt, or 9-volt batteries, excluding automobile and boat batteries, with a sales price of $50 or less. A nonelectric food storage cooler with a sales price of $60 or less. A portable generator used to provide light or communications or preserve food in the event of a power outage with a sales price of $3,000 or less. Reusable ice with a sales price of $20 or less. A portable power bank with a sales price of $60 or less. A smoke detector or smoke alarm with a sales price of $70 or less. A fire extinguisher with a sales price of $70 or less. A carbon monoxide detector with a sales price of $70 or less.
  10. I wouldn't eat them either. Found out quickly that the family dog didn't like beets either.
  11. We used to use a hand crank megger. Good for fishing worms and zapping other things also.
  12. About once every 20 years I buy a can of Spam just to see if I still dislike it. It's been about 20 years now but my gal bought some 6 or 7 years ago...yep, it's still disgusting but I wouldn't starve before eating it. It's beets that I'd starve before eating them.
  13. Or "You ain't gonna believe this s***"...
  14. No doubt that Boeing is a success story as are the other companies listed, although we'll just pretend the AMF/Harley days were an aberration. Look at the list below of statistics on model of aircraft and fatal events. Suit yourself on the Boeing decision but I'll take the French plane if at all possible and never a 737 Max anything. Plane crash rates by model (airsafe.com)
  15. Maybe because of Boeing's corporate attitude toward new aircraft training and crashes directly attributed to Boeing. I don't know of too many other aircraft manufactures whose aircraft consistently have computer software flaws that has flown their customers into the sea/ground or had parts of the aircraft flying off causing explosive decompression and various other incidents. BTW, have you taken a look at their space endeavors? I wish the astronauts on the Boeing spacecraft the best of luck on Saturday....but I don't care what they're paying...I wouldn't want to be on the top of it. Most of the times when you're flying, your of airplane manufactures are about 50/50 between Airbus or Boeing. Some airlines are Boeing heavy, others are Airbus heavy. Choose your airline wisely.
  16. One better, not a photo though. https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/c133x22kzrpo
  17. Didn't Al Bundy use to read a magazine called Embiggen?
  18. Bacon or sausage...or both! Or, going to Great Grandma's on Thanksgiving...the aroma stays with you forever....
  19. I saw it on a visit to Yosemite in the early '70's. It was weird to see a "rainbow" at night but a pretty cool sight to see. I saw a "moonbow" again in the late '80's in Kentucky at Cumberland Falls, not as big though.
  20. Fun fact - Almost every one of the actors portraying the Black Widows biker gang was in at least one other Clint Eastwood movie other than the "Every Which Way" series.
  21. Couldn't be Kamala. The actions depicted on the sign require skill and talent.
  22. Yeah, bad timing for reloading stuff, but I know that a lot of folks use Red Dot. I don't use it, don't even have any, nor am I going to purchase any. Alliant has stated that they are canceling and/or restricting all sales of canister powders. Maybe BS, maybe not...I don't know. Thought folks would like they're possible last chance, for a while, at this particular powder. Everyone has their favorite powder(s)...the one(s) they've NEVER had a problem with. I do...it isn't Red Dot though.
