Just getting ready to go shop for a new microwave. Ours died last night. We have had this on since 2006. Is that about their life span?

I don't either but many people do. It's called conversation.

We have a Sharp that's at least 10 years old. The display is shot so we've had to adjust to that.

I'd buy a new one but can't find one like the one I have. It's built with the control panel across the top so it's narrow for it's turntable size and power. It fits perfectly on a narrow piece of counter between the fridge and stove.

I don't know about newer microwaves, but our previous one lasted over 20 years.

It's called conversation when the other person responds. When they say they have better things to do, well, that's just rude.

Had a crash course in plumbing,taking out and placing back sheet a rock wall this week.It's been an experience.Now I get to finally paint the bathroom...Yeah!!!!

We had a water pipe leak from the guest bathroom's shower.Didn't know about it until it was too late.Hearing water spraying inside a wall isn't fun.

So we had to take out the wall.It was unrepairable.I didn't want to deal with mold issues.Just get it out and replace the whole thing.Fixed the pipe.Waited a few days to see if it would leak again.Put a new wall back.While we were at it replaced all the fixtures in the bathroom.Right down to the sink.The new fan is nice and quiet.

Now all that's left is paint,replace those flat things that line the bottoms of the walls,floors and lining the new shelves.

Maybe after I take a nap.

Thumbs up

I dismantled a hand plane, to sharpen the blade and thought I noted how it came apart in sections. Apparently not! After a frustrating time I hit on the idea to see if there was a youtube on how to assemble a hand plane.

Gotta love youtube - saved the day!

The apartment manager knock on my door early this afternoon. She hadn't seen me for a couple of weeks and wanted to know if I was all right. Then we got talking about my neighbor. I told her that this morning around ten a.m. there was a loud crash that came from her apartment. Loud enough that it woke me out of a sound sleep. She mentioned that the police have been here twice and did I know if it was for her? I haven't seen them, but I have been sick with this stinking cold and have been staying in my apartment. I don't want to infect anyone in the building. I also mentioned that there was a loud argument going on. The manager suspects that the granddaughter is staying with her. She is homeless. I was going to call the police this morning when I heard the loud crash. But I am so reluctant to bring more troubles on her. I am sorry now that I didn't. Like it or not I am going to have to get involved. Elderly Abuse are ugly words. And that is what is going on in there.

Update on mom - her UTI is back with a vengeance, she's dehydrated, and her electrolytes are out of whack. Going to be in hospital longer this time so she can build her strength back up.
