Hey! I know what we need from Canada! Instead of an oil pipeline how about a water pipeline?

I know KIKI brought this up already but... can you imagine looking for leaks in a water pipeline?

Instead of looking for nasty black oil slicks, you'd be looking for unexpected green oases! Wouldn't THAT be a pleasant finding?

Back from mah jong fun morning but alas no luck. Managed to go out about 3 or 4 times but lousy scores. I had one decent hand with Winds and Dragons in it which netted me over 1,000 points. So this morning total was over 3,000 points.

Oh well.

Now, if the rain would stop. Had to wear my boots today because of it.

Used up the last of my wood putty today. I can't believe I finally figured out how to make that stuff last. I opened that up a year ago and it was still good.

I decided to give that old curio cabinet a proper restore that's up to my new standards. I did a fairly good job back in my drinking days with it, but nowhere near the level of the kitchen cabinets.

I was going to put new hinges on it, but I couldn't find anything in oil rubbed bronze that would work at the store and the prices were gross anyways. I'm not spending $30 on 4 hinges and 2 door latches.

I'll just give them the spraypaint treatment that I gave the interior kitchen hardware after scrubbing them clean.


It really is a nice old cabinet. I got it from a guy back when I worked at KMart. He had it out in his garage for decades, and it was in terrible shape when I first got it.


I'm going to move it out in the living room. I've got the perfect spot for it. That will free up the entire floor in the kitchen, so all I'll have there is the 2-seater table. Now that the garbage/recycle bins are under the countertop where the dishwasher used to be and the cabinet isn't there anymore, there will be plenty of room for the table and it will really open up the path between the kitchen and living room.

Once that's done, I can load it back up and get everything out of the pantry so I can start working on that.

I'm not sure if I'm just going to pull off the bad contact paper off of the shelves in there and paint them, or if I want to build it out with a better layout and some drawers or not.

Well... There seems to be one flaw in the preservation of the wood putty...

It hasn't been an issue until now, but since I was at the end of the product over the year+ of preserving it, there apparently was too much water in it. My experience with wood putty to this point was that it never suffered from the shrinkage that you'd get with caulk or joint compound (drywall patch).

But there was some shrinkage last night. Too much, acutally. Even when I sand it down on the sides of the deeper ruts, it will still be slightly pitted.

I did find another small wood putty container while moving all my stuff around, but that must have been bought many, many years ago. I'll have to open it and see if it's still any good. It should be enough to finish the job if it is.

SIX! Nice to see you back! I was wondering how you were getting on with the home renovation!

Hubby FINALLY noticed what a moldy nightmare the shower is, so we're going to have a shower and window replacement. No chance of this being DIY, tho! There may be some structural repairs required because I suspect the shower stall has been leaking into to floor and/ or walls for quite a while. (At one time I did chisel out and recaulk dear daughters shower, should have redone ours a long time ago.)

Anyway, looking at replacing three windows, and one shower stall. Also adding a powered vent and possibly replacing the tile floor, depending on what we find when the shower comes out.

Trying to talk hubby into going with solid surface bc, as I may have mentioned already, I hate grout!

Busy researching materials, costs, etc and looking for local contractors. Have two solid leads so far, and spike with a Corian rep but will probably go with Swanstone .. assuming it's not too pricey compared to tile ... bc Swanstone is a little less expensive but in some ways better.

Also been online looking at colors etc. Bc the room gets a lot of sunshine all day long, I think I need to tone it down with blue. Did the guest bedroom that way and every who has seen it thinks it's fabulous.

Think I managed to sort out ONE of my health problems ... possibly not enough salt!

Erratic heartbeat. Blood pressure jacking up and down. Profound lack of energy and depressed mood. Rapid weight loss. Spoke with Dr today and she told me to aim for AT LEAST 1500 mg/ day. I know I wasn't anywhere near that, so I'm aiming for 1/2 teaspoon (1200 mg) plus one Powerade Zero. Anything more is to the good

I hope this works.

The funny thing is, hubby went thru the same thing about 30 years ago. They did all kinds of sophisticated tests on him and tried all all kinds of meds, but I was the one who dxd and fixed the problem.

I think JSF thinks salt is poison, but someone should tell him it's a vital electrolyte required to maintain blood volume.

Just made the laziest gumbo ever. My inspiration was Norm's restaurant gumbo, which is a light soup but very tasty, so I didn't start out with a dark roux, just thickened it with flour afterwards.

Leftover cooked chicken (from chicken dumpling soup), beef smoked sausage (no hot seasoning for dear daughter!), celery, green pepper plus a little leftover red pepper, leftover frozen okra (next time I'll use more), thyme, smoked paprika, bay, broth, flour for thickening... Added pan fried onion and chipotle to hubby's bowl separately. Anyway it turned out great!

Convinced hubby to let go of some dead Presidents and get the dog's teeth cleaned. It's remarkably expensive bc they have to sedate the dog. But then, they need to do an exam and blood work too, to make sure anesthesia is safe, so at least she's getting a thorough physical.

I scheduled this last AUGUST, IIRC, when we were having the house heat treated. Vet is incredibly booked up. But he's a good vet, handles animals very calmly as do his assistants, thorough and not too expensive compared to other vets. I found him thru one of my dog-walking friends.

The curio cabinet will be electrified.


I knew I wanted it out of the corner of the kitchen to free up all the room over there for a nice table and chairs now that the garbage and recycling go under the countertop where the dishwasher used to be... but the problem was that I've grown quite accustomed to using it there because there was a plug outlet tucked away in that corner that was as high as a standard light switch (the oddities of a tri-level home).

It really was the perfect place to put all of my electronics to charge via USB ports. It occurred to me that not only is there nothing like this wall outlet in the living room, but this unit not be in a corner and will be one of the first things you see when you come in the front door since it will be directly across from it. The idea of plopping a power strip with a thick cord (that would end up blocking easy access to the right door and the drawer action) from the outlet on the floor and around the front of the thing to use the it for the same purpose kind of made me wretch a bit...


So I'm building electricity into the back of the thing.

Using my awesome new-ish multi-tool for the first time, I was able to make clean rectangular cuts in the back of the unit in order for me to glue the plaster ring that caps a junction box when dry-walling right on the back of it. Once everything is painted and it's fixed, I can attach my junction boxes from behind.

Yes... I'm doing two. One on the bottom shelf where all of my electronics were recently being charged, and I decided to make another one on the top shelf of the cabinet down below the drawer too.

I figure since I'm already doing this work, why not join two boxes with conduit in the back so I'll have a place to charge all of the LED closet lights I bought that would be tucked away and out of sight instead of charging them on my living room floor using the USB ports on the power strip for the TV down there.

I've also decided to go super-legit with it and use the last GFCI outlet I had from the 4-pack to the bottom one where the plug will be for bonus protection of the electronics.

The only thing is, I'm going to have to remember to tell whoever ends up helping me move this thing one day that the conduit between the two boxes is NOT a handle.




I needed this. It's still going to take me HOURS to sand down the rest of that plastic wood and that was making me find excuses not to work on it. This is going to be one of the coolest pieces of furniture in my house when it's done now.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.



Hey Signy and Brenda - just saying hi! I'm still in and out of town, so my posting will be here and there.

Aside from being away from home more than in the past, nothing much is going on at my end ... tho being away from home does make it harder to keep up with tasks and projects ... so I have to work more diligently at keeping up.

Still no rain here, as Signy has commented on. Sigh. The deciduous trees definitely suffered in the last prolonged heatwave, they started to turn color early, but a rather muted purple-brown instead of their normal brilliant colors.

Hey Signy, if you want to plant a very landscape-useful, long-lived (up to 500 years), drought tolerant, native tree, try incense cedar (Calocedrus decurrens). It's impervious to many of the maladies - especially the imported pests and fungi - that trees are susceptible to here; as well as more ozone tolerant than other native conifers. Grows tall but not TOO tall - up to ~50', has a narrower profile so it doesn't cast a big pool of shade, and roots are not a problem.

Here's a young one that hasn't been 'limbed up'.

I don't think salt is poison.

But I know sucralose is poison, and you said you are going to drink it.

Sucralose is designed, engineered, created, and manufactured to be a poison, a pesticide, to kill living things. And you have announced that you are going to drink it. Are you trying to kill yourself? I have gotten many friends to clear up their health issues (and cancel surgeries) just by getting off sucralose.

I don't like salt. I don't like the taste. When I was a kid, we salted everything. Cantelope, corn on the cob (salt plus melted butter), scrambled eggs (plus pepper and ketchup) and lots of other stuff that I cannot recall now. But too many food places oversalt their food, so I really got tired of it. Biggest violators are gravy, dressing/stuffing, soups, mac&cheese, cooked/steamed beef.
I don't have salt in my house/kitchen much, and avoid it in my cooking. I use garlic salt for boiling pasta. I accidentally bought Lemon Pepper because I like lemon and (black) pepper flavoring - but it seems to be mostly just salt. I destroyed some really nice meat the first (and only) time I tried that in my cooking.

I'm interested in more info about the blood chemistry. Is it just a PH balance issue? Conductivity issue? Do some functions of the blood require salt, or get triggered or catalyzed by salt? Do some other parts of the blood build on the salt?
Is there a simple test for salt level? Like a litmus paper type thing?
