Of course. Already back at the drawing board.

That was always a given.

All of my wife's great ideas require me to either work more to generate more income or expend more labor to accomplish her goal.

Yeah, it's no more work or cost for her - materials are the same, it's just the pain in my ass to be more persnickety with sizing and fitting the doors. They do look better, though.

Are you building the cabinets yourself or hiring it out?

You want us to explain the logic of illogical quackery? Okay - crystals are pretty. They must be good for something, right?

If he would just leave Knoxville and go someplace like Sedona, he would learn everything he needs to know about healing crystals, vortexes with amazing powers, and the like.

There are also as many people there who can tell you your future (for a fee, of course) as there are Elvises in Nashville and Vegas combined.

Glad you brought that up. Letís say an asymptomatic guy coughs into his hand and then grabs some barbells and works out. Then I come behind him and use the same barbells, and unconsciously touch my nose or my mouth, letís say to wipe some sweat away. Is there no chance the virus could spread that way, especially omicron?

Hypothetically possible but almost none of the cases are spread that way.

I guess the gyms perform all the sanitizing just to cover their azz. Thatís reasonable, plus it gives customers the comforting impression theyíre relatively safe.

It's kinda nice to have it done, even if COVID had never showed up

I was bow tie until 2015 but as the abused partner I finally got up the courage and left the marriage. I'm now now a Honda guy, for now. They have to earn my loyalty from now on.

I'm sorry to read you guys had bad experiences with GM products and now rule them out. I've had 19 GM cars among the 30 or so cars I've owned. The worst cars I have owned have been an International Harvester truck, a Volvo station wagon, and a Toyota Tercel 4wd wagon. I would never have another Volvo or IH truck and it would have to be a special circumstance for me to consider another Toyota.
Having worked on thousands of GM cars I prefer them for ease of service and obtaining parts. Plus, I still get employee prices on parts and can get programming free. It's a slam dunk.

If people are unmasked, the focus on cleaning is a waste of time tbh.

Maybe crystals impart energy waves that stimulate electrolytes. Everything is better with electrolytes.

Surfaces matter a lot for flu, though.

I don't know if you saw it but a reporter went somewhere in California that is a known medical looney-tunes area, and the reporter was asking people about vaccinations and such and if people said they didn't want to be vaxxed, then he asked them what they do to keep from getting CV. The answers were hilarious.

Tell me about it. When I worked for the State of Illinois, all of our engineering vehicles were Travel-Alls, Scouts, etc. because IH had a factory in Canton, IL. Man, they were junk. They were junk when they were new. This was in the '70s and I know most cars were junk but these were junk of several magnitude.

I tried to warn you people about Wordle, but no one listened.

Haven't seen that - will need to check it out.

There are all sorts of crystal shops in Sedona. One and sometimes 4 on every corner. Went into one place that had some really cool artsy stuff, and the guy was selling "bonded crystals." They were basically two rocks/crystals about the size of golf balls and of roughly the same color that someone, someplace deemed to be "bonded." Price was over $500.

Now, I'll spend $500 on a good meal for four, but not on a pair of rocks. I guess that makes me as looney as the person who will spend $500 on a pair of rocks and $40 on a meal for four. ;)

A larger kitchen renovation was the plan in late 2019, and then early 2020 happened... For a short time, we thought that we might move, instead, but the development that we had designs on didn't pan out. We're still pretty sure that this place isn't the long term solution for us, but we circled back to a smaller refresh to make things a little more enjoyable while we're still here (which is why I was totally fine with saving myself some trouble with overlaid doors).

:lol: I hope to be done a little faster than that. I'm going to work in stages - hopefully I'll have the two upper cabinet walls done within a month or so. I'm done with the broad strokes of the design, currently laying everything out in SketchUp. I'm starting to go cross-eyed from staring intently at the screen all day. :twitchy:

It was on one of the major news channels some time ago before Christmas.

The reporter asked one guy if he thought vaccinations worked and the guy said "no." Wearing masks? "No." Coffee enema? "Maybe." :lol:
