We got one half size 15 amp breaker runnin everything but the kitchen.  Bathroom is on the same circuit as the outlets and the lights in the rest of the place (a big no no).  One outlet in the bedroom is on a different line.  I used to lay out circuits and this panel is so far from code I don't know what ta think.

Oooo, sticky! Sounds like that one needs a redo to be safe Shocked That house we had still had some of the old ceramic holders and the single strand/wrapped wire in the attic. Built around 1920. Had hard woods for the framing, I burned up a bunch of drill bits trying to do things around there. Stuff was like stone Roll Eyes

I had errands to run today and took Victoria for a ride.  We went by a BBQ place and got some chopped beef sammiches with some beans and potato salad. I took a nap after the errands and lunch. No clue for supper tonight.

We ended up having some lasagna and a tossed salad for supper.  The rain is forcast again for tomorrow, it only sprinkled lightly this morning. It's still 70 outside. We got all kinds of trees budding out in our neighborhood. I am still not convinced that March will keep us in winter for awhile.

One of the selling points of our house was the new plumbing and the new wiring. Grin

Went to eat at a place Rita tried with some friends a couple weeks ago, a bar about a mile west of us.  Pretty strict place, no one under 21 period, cash, no checks or cards. 

1/2 pound hamburgers, (yes 1/2 pound) 99 cents, 10 cents for a slice of Swiss Cheese.  1/2 pound of fries, 99 cents.  Rita had a pork kabob $1.99 all meat, no veggies, guessing about a 1/2 pound of meat.  You have to buy a drink, she had a Tome Collins, I had 2 Lipton Iced teas, Cost us $7.50, tea and mixed drink were the same price.  Nice big peeled shrimp, 29 cents each, we had 40.  Total cost was about $25 for us tonight and I'm am very stuffed and i was starving when I got home.

Also a new one, we had a 'nader watch tonight, they had one about 50 miles west of Pitspiter's, no damage, but first recorded one in the month of Feburary in the state, now we have completed all 12. Roll Eyes

Sounds like a good place Del.  We had lime curried chicken with corn on the cob and baked taters.

Slim, I would love ta rewire this place but it aint mine.  When I talk ta the owner bout stuff like that he turns the volume knob off in 'is head an jus' kinda stares at me.  I would try ta balance it at the panel but they covered over the J boxes instead of leaving them open with a plate over em (another no no).

And, the rains came.

And, the rains were heavy.

And, with them came the thunder and the darkness.

And, with them came the oft asked question in Eagle chat, “What happens to them when it rains?”

And behold, the answer came, “They get wet.”

Some DIY'ers know just enough to be dangerous, Leo Shocked

Spent part of this morning transposing some hymns for Easter this year. My composer friend also did a redo on a hymn and gave me a form of descant for it. He's always wrote interesting stuff for me. Plays piano, accordion, harp, organ, and teaches voice and other instruments. The wash out did that cornet some good fumes wise, so at least no headaches from playing it now. Only have to bring one horn each, now. To get different shades of tone, we just have to change mouthpieces. I learned that off of Trumpet Masters from a cornet guy down in Jaw-Ja. The type of cornet we picked up can be a real chaemeleon. Deep open backbored piece and it gets real mellow almost flugle like, put in a trumpet type cup and you get a more trumpet like sound. Amazing instruments that were considered student horns 50 years ago when they were made. Conn 17A's. Shocked Wink

Funny, in younger days I sold my only car ta buy a motorcycle.  Got asked many times what I would do when it rained.  Gave the folks the same answer.  

Buck, sounds like ya got the horns all figgered out.  If you is playin descants you must be able to hit all the high notes.  Used ta transpose them from organ music for Easter service, they is in a perty high range.  I'd be nice ta hear ya sometime.
