The cleaners only come every two weeks.

Shortly after we bought this house, I came home from work to find my wife looking totally frazzled and wore out. She looked at me and said she didnít realize how big this house is until she finished cleaning three bathrooms and realized she still had two to go.

Foxes and other wild animals visit our yard regularly.

You first.

And every ride should finish with a happy ending.

Anecdotal at this point, but coming to a preprint server near you!

Youíd love my ďfamilyĒ room. Itís got two sets of switches for two sets of recessed lights and when I installed LED compatible dimmers, I screwed up the logic and now one set has to be up-down when both sets of lights are on or off. All switches are right side up.

When I first posted that, I was thinking that intentionally wiring a circuit like that would be a great way to **** with someone with OCD. If a room in my house was wired like that, I'd probably be able to ignore it for a couple months, but then I'd have to yank it and rewire.

Is Sharpsville a magical place at Christmas? Could it be the setting for a Hallmark/Lifetime Christmas movie? Big city ex-pat returns home to find love under the town square tree?

Well, had to throw a couple bags of pre-packaged salad away tonight. :rolleyes:

Iím actually pretty sure itís wired wrong. I futzed around with it once and couldnít figure it out. Iíve got better things to do with my time.
