That's mostly how we use them. We warm up the bed then turn them off. However, sometimes you feel really cold and can leave them on all night. They have a temperature controller with heat settings. Ours has 1-10. 10 gets it heated up and up can turn it down to 1 or 2 for the overnight.

Honestly I simply did not see the sign, was in an unfamiliar part of town..


I don't have problem with people driving with the posted speed limit, or me for that matter, as long as they remember that "slower traffic move to the right" and in some states and a lot of places around the world "left lane is for passing only". I remember taking my wife to the hospital, her water broke, and we have this hwy 35 with 45 miles speed, this guy in the left was driving exactly 45, as well as the guy in the right lane.. You can imagine I am in the hurry and they are just cursing along next to each other. I don't care about guy on the right but one the left, I'm honking and honking, and the jerk flashes 4 and 5 to me. Thank G-d I did not ran him of the roads. I hate ars holes like that.

Looking at a huge ugly unopened box sitting in my living room.
It's a brand new dishwasher.Yep, finally broke down and bought one.

We ordered it and all the recommended parts for it online.Gotta say I'm not too impressed with Home Depot right now.

The delivery date was set back.That was ok, things happen.
When it finally got here the delivery driver already has his mind set he and the other guy wasn't going to install it."Were here for a drop off" Hubby quickly corrected him it's installation and removal +parts have been paid for.Yes you will.

The driver said something to his friend in spanish which btw way is completely rude of one to do if the others don't speak it.
He came in took a look under the sink.Went to his truck brought back some paper work after rereading the original order form that yes he's right.

We didn't know that this states plumbing codes require that all domestic dishwashers now have to have an air gap installed before a new one is installed.It prevents backflow.New law from the last time we bought one

We called Home Depot about it.They refunded us for the parts and also gave us a $50.00 in store gift card. Oh joy, joy my cup is runneth over. That should probably cover the additional parts.

The whole idea was to go easy pay to let someone else do the work.
Were still stuck doing it ourselves.

Can I kick that box?

Absolutely, but don't burn it until you get the dishwasher and all parts and manuals out of it.

I have a small heating pad, and on cold nights,an hour or so before bed time, I put it in Kayelle's side on low to warm up the bed for her.

The stupidest part of course is that the street I got the ticket on, is the border line of that city, 20 feet to the right and I would be in a different city. Go figure. Not sure what to do now. If tickets goes on my record it stays there for 5 years. Crazy. Any lawyers here? Any advice?

Charlie, I imagine each state is different, but in our state you can take a "deferred" which is asking for a "mitigation hearing, admitting to the infraction and paying the fine in full. If you do not have a moving violation in the next year then the infraction does not go on your record. Many times you can get the mitigation by mail and do not have to appear at the court hearing. This is not done in every jurisdiction, but it's worth a try asking. Call the court clerk of the jurisdiction where you got the citation to inquire.

I know, I know, he really is too good to be true. Just ask him how that heating pad to warm my rear on an Alaskan cruise almost got us busted by the TSA. lol

My Ogre used to do things like that, now it's payback time. And I don't have to worry about the TSA.
