    Can I mix 12 and 14 gauge wire in a junction box?

    I just wanted to thank you guys for the answers because I did not know some of this. I'm taking notes. I need to stop calling cables "wires".

    What did you do today?

    Glad it went well, Flyover. I wish I'd had my camera ready when my little dog was barking at the raccoons. They are bigger than him and were not impressed. Then they saw me and ran. They still keep sneaking in though. I spent a long time cleaning up. I found my mother's lost engagement ring...

    What did you do today?

    Finally got power back. Walked in to check on the pets & the power came on while we were there. The house is a disaster inside though. Looks like it was ransacked. I was blaming the dogs & cats at first but then two very fat raccoons showed up in the kitchen. There were drawers opened, pantry...

    Post Your Kitchen!!

    Lol. I wasn't home when they did it. Dogs also messed stuff up. They dragged in trash from outside and ripped all kinds of stuff open.

    Best friend's house burned on Easter

    Murphy table idea has been scrapped. Not enough prep space. Got a Farberware 6qt pressure cooker bc their rice cooker sucked. New plan is to move fridge to diagonal corner and put a dishwasher in its place under butcheblock counter. Smaller window will be put in and upper cabinets will be put...

    Post Your Kitchen!!

    Got HyperTough slim LED under cabinet lights. They are brighter than the ceiling fan light. In my friend's house. My own kitchen is an absolute disaster. Cats and dogs have been tearing things up.

    Awesome! I'll have to look those up when power is back. I'm going to start a phone campaign to remind my power company every day until it is fixed. Meanwhile, the lights: New toilet:

    What did you do today?

    That should have been Fippy, not Guppy. I can understand teen mothers having trouble with babies and being irresponsible. This girl is 23 and the baby might not even be my friend's. Got about 7 people here using 1 bathroom. The grandfather just goes all over. He was injured on the job when he...

    What did you do today?

    Got undercabinet lights for my friend's kitchen. Had to go to my house twice today to pick up tools and later drill bits. Guppy had gotten himself locked in the living room both times so it's a good thing I checked. I need to find a way to latch that door so he can't get in. It has a spring so...

    What did you do today?

    If I could get my thoughts together I'd write memoirs. Lol. Today I babysat my friend's mother's dog. Emptied the urine bottles & rinsed them. Cleaned the baby's bottles. Fed some kittens. Put the old man's pain patches on his shoulders. Took mom home to see Fippy. Fed and refilled water for...

    What did you do today?

    To clarify, friend's grandfather can and does get to the bathroom. He used an entire box of wet wipes in a couple of days-- they weren't even his wipes. He also goes through almost an entire mega roll of toilet paper every day. He's clogged the toilet multiple times. Woke up today to hear...

    What did you do today?

    Thanks, shan. My friend's mom left for now and took her dogs but she also took my friend's car. The grandfather wakes people up all hours of day and night by hollering for my friend. He doesn't seem to care that it wakes the baby & my friend needs sleep so he can go to work. During the day he...

    What did you do today?

    Glad it went well, flyover. My friend's family are being aggravating. His mom messes with people's stuff, takes food, and leaves her dogs here for over 12 hours at a time while she goes and does drugs. The grandfather peed all over the kitchen floor, all over the carpet his greatgrandaughter's...

    What did you do today?

    That sucks about not getting good support from Moen. Still without power. I miss my own bed and the peace and quiet.

    What did you do today?

    Lost power. Still don't have it back. Had to go clear out fridge in 100 degree heat. Using phone to message now that my friend has Internet restored. Crashing on friends couch. Crowded here. Friend has a new baby that screams all night. Animals are all fine. House is OK but kitchen floor is...

    What did you do today?

    Dentist bumped my appointment to 8am instead of noon so I could get out of there faster. I think they had some cancellations. Everyone was very nice. I'm allergic to some of the stuff they normally use for anesthetic so they had to stick to lidocaine. I was mostly numb. I felt some pressure & a...

    Suggestions for mattress

    I've had a hard time finding good mattresses that last. The newer mattresses that have harder foam under memory foam tend to compress permanently and have pits where you sleep (at least for me). My mother got a Tempurpedic 8" full memory foam mattress over 15 years ago and it's still good. I...

    What did you do today?

    I forced myself to clean the litterboxes & the toilet, but other than that I wasn't feeling well today. I think it's the barometric pressure changes. My limbs feel heavy & I feel bleh. I did watch a lot of videos & read stuff on how to build a shed. I need to replace the one around my well &...
