I got a threatening letter from the condo association.

If those of us who still have fuses don't get that upgraded to breakers by 30 May, we will have to share the extra $4,000 that will be added to the condo's insurance premium.

Then they said to contact our "block rep" and gave his phone number (I haven't had it since he lost his phone and got a new number) and they said it would cost about $650. Last time they talked about price, a few years ago, it was over $800, with group discount.

I had been planning on getting the block rep's # so I could ask him to recommend an electrician. I have the money this time. Oh man, that will be nice to have breakers instead of fuses.

That's a blessing in disguise TL.

You'll incur some expense but your safety is paramount.

My best advice is to find a well qualified electrician recommended by a friend, family or an associate.

Once he or she is at your home offer a cool refreshment. If they have to call through your attic or crawl space offer a moist hand towel (not your best).

A little kindness goes a long way.

:)

Oh yeah, safety is an important issue. The fuse box is in the basement, so I don't think there will be any crawling through the attic.

It would be a blessing in disguise if we hadn't already been planning on doing it. It will of course be a certified electrician. I wouldn't be comfortable otherwise and it wouldn't be good enough for the insurance company if it wasn't.

lol, chop.

j-riv, what's in the pasta dish besides mushrooms? looks good.

my smile to was strangely from being a little sore from yesterday.

during baseball practice yesterday, i challenged the boys to see who could run the fastest: them, or fat, old me. i offered $20 to anyone that could beat me.

now, at 48 years old, and only 6' but around 240 lbs., i'm not in great shape. but i kept my $20 as i outran a dozen little 9 and 10 year olds in a sprint where you go 30 yards, touch a line then go back, touch, and do it 3 more times.

later, i challenged them again for $20 to outrun me around the bases. i've still got my $20, but it really inspired the boys to work harder for next time. they've got $$$ in their eyes.

then, after practice i had to wait with a few boys until their parents came to pick them up, so i taught them how to juggle 3 baseballs, and bounce a ball off of your bicep and back into ypur hand, and toss a ball in the air and catch it behind your back. it was a lot of fun, and the boys had no idea that they were working on eye-hand coordination.

but holy moly, i'm sore today. i can't sit down or get up without sounding like an old man. but every time i feel like that my grimace turns to a smile thinking of how i can't wait to play tomorrow.
