Sometimes a twist tie or superglue works better, but it's amazing how many things are fixable with duct tape.

This chart reminds me of two things...Do you know what redneck auto air-conditioning is? WD-40. Windows down, 40 miles per hour.

And...

A homemade sign Buck made for his woodworking shop. It read:

This shop protected by "G.O.D." Then, in small print, in parentheses, just below, it read "Good Old Duct Tape." The "t" wasn't included, but the point was still made.

I keep cable ties (wish I'd invented those!) on hand and have superglue in the fridge...and have lots of WD 40 (buy it in a gallon container and transfer it to a spray bottle--I swear the DH uses DW 40 as aftershave--he has three engineering degrees...) and duct tape in the basement!
