Good Morning Folks...
Man oh Man, getting too old for this stuff, stayed up to watch my Sens win last night, but the game didn't end till after midnight, and up @ 6 to have my coffee, and have the truck at the shop for an oil change @ 8... Back in the day, I was able to work, have union meetings all day, go for a couple of beers after work, and do it all over again... But think that would kill me today (LOL)

So, I trust YOU all had great turkey days and black Friday festivities... It's funny how fast time goes now also... It seemed just like yesterday it was Thursday...

Redneck, you're doing brand new cabinets / counters with the dishwasher install?

My Brother's favorite breed is Springer Spaniels, which I think are just giant Cocker Spaniels.
@Spicoli43, Just building a cabinet for the dishwasher...and then installing the dishwasher. Was looking yesterday where she wants the dishwasher and where it would be practical...Going to look closer today when I get home from the oil change...

Put the other truck on Facebook yesterday, and got all kinds of inquiries for it... Also dropped the price to $2500... And not going much lower...

Well, I hope YOU all have a GREAT Monday...

Well, that is my day... I want to get online and see if I can find the dimensions for this dishwasher, so I can frame it in before Tuesday, run the water lines, and drain...
Redneck, Dishwashers are usually 24" wide and around 23" deep. The height is adjustable to fit under you countertop. An Air Gap may be required for your drain line by code otherwise you can make the drain line go through a high loop

Also, you might consider having your dishwasher on a dedicated 20A circuit. It's probably code in Canada anyway.

When you pick the head will it make another?
This is the first time Ruby has attempted to grow broccoli but this is what the internet says about it:

How Many Times Can You Harvest a Broccoli Plant?

At first glance, broccoli (Brassica oleracea) seems like an inefficient vegetable. It doesn't continually produce new fruit like many garden vegetables. However, broccoli does have some redeeming qualities. Although you can't harvest broccoli for months on end, you can harvest it several times during the growing season. Don't wait until the broccoli heads become large, though. Young shoots are the most tender and sweet.

Harvesting​

In general, broccoli plants can be harvested two or three times or for a period of up to three months. The plant first produces a large center head. This head should be cut at a slight angle with 5 to 6 inches of stalk. Once cut, the plant will produce smaller side heads for several weeks. Broccoli should be harvested when the heads are small, tight and firm. If flower buds appear, it should be cut immediately. When the yellow flowers open, broccoli becomes bitter.

Growing Conditions​

How long you can harvest broccoli depends mostly on weather conditions. Broccoli is a cool-season crop that bolts or goes to seed in hot, dry weather. In Mediterranean climates, it grows best from fall to late spring. During cool weather, it can be harvested repeatedly. When the weather turns hot, your broccoli-picking days are probably over.

Attempting to fix my mother in laws Christmas Decorations today. Hopefully it works. Used JB Weld 2 part epoxy.

One of the sleigh’s runners broke off. It’s hard to glue something like that back on but epoxy is pretty good stuff!

Also her Santa broke off it’s stand. Trying to hold it while the epoxy sets is the challenge.

Good Evening Folks...

Well, my 2006 Ford sold today, and I was offered $1800... wrote back saying I was hoping to get $2000, then wrote back and said, what the hell... Merry Christmas, I'll take the $1800... So as of tomorrow morning, she is gone... Had about 100 offers come in, once I posted her on Market Place on Facebook... Hate to say it... But yup, Lorie was right... again...

So, took the plates off her, and cleaned everything out of her...Just finished the bill of sale... So, tomorrow morning, she is GONE!!

Picked up the wood to frame the dishwasher in, that is tomorrow's job...The dishwasher was supposed to be here today, instead, it will be here Friday afternoon... So, hopefully, if I can get some sleep tonight, I will have her ready to be plugged in, and away it goes...Time will tell... But I need some SLEEP...

There is not a lot else to report here up in the northern part of North America...Except the snow is almost gone... except for a little tuff here and there... No, where as much as we did last weekend...

Well, I hope YOU all have a GREAT evening...and tomorrow it's hump day already tomorrow...
Cheers~

Since I have problems flipping eggs 'over easy' I decided to try an 'egg in the hole'. The egg remained in the pan toasted bread for the flip so I may be on to something.

I re-installed a one piece Kohler Rochelle toilet using a waxless seal. It's in a tight place as I scooted it into place on 2x4 scraps one corner of the base hit the ceramic tile and chipped the corner. Not too serious or noticable. I will try some moldable plastic pellets and acrylic paint to touch up the corner.

Did I mention that I hate plumbing? I don't even recall how many months I have been down to one bath due to a pinhole leak repair in the wall behind the toilet.

Interesting! That actually sounds really good! I love to dip my toast in egg yoke!

So…the Rochelle is the small toilet that looks like it doesn’t have a tank?

I can’t even figure out how that works. The tank is usually up high so gravity will help the water flush with force.

Was the leak in copper?
