No measuring tape required.

Plus your internet modem and router power stripe into a smart outlet. Schedule your smart outlet to reboot a few times a week after midnight.

I saw one today.

I was on my way home and saw some guys that had a good system for getting their job done. They were pulling some fiber optic cable for something through a horizontal hole, underground.

The system they came up with, that I have not seen before was, they a mini excavator or track hoe. They used the hole to lift the left side tracks off the ground, then wrapped the strap they had hooked to the cable or whatever they were pulling, around the left side tracks. Then had a guy put the left side tracks in reverse and used the excavator as a winch. They were pulling that cable through that hole, quick.

They wrapped the strap around the tracks once, then had a guy pulling and the strap as the tracks were going.

Have you tried their chorizo? I think it is the best anywhere. Some folks don't like it because it is not greasy enough, but I like that fact and that is also has chunks of actual meat

They sell for about 5 bucks a piece on AMZN. They connect to wifi and I use Google Home app to control. Also have smart switches so my front porch lights can be scheduled to turn off and on. Most all can connect to Alexa speakers/app too.

Any time my kiddos get hurt they get to repeat the 4 life saving steps:
1 - start the breathing
2 - stop the bleeding
3 - protect the wound
4 - treat for shock

We covered it tonight because someone had a gusher. Which step are we on?

If you have a screw stripped out in wood , push a couple of toothpicks in the hole and break them off. Then drive the screw back in , it will be like new.

I have not tried their chorizo but will add it to my list for the next grocery run. I don’t think they know how to make a bad product!

One of the locals came stumbling through the front door. His wife said in a loud voice. “Drunk again!” He answered. “Yea me too!” Might be worth a try.

I’ve always glued a piece of a wooden dowel in the screw hole. The next day, (or after the glue sets up), you can drill a small pilot hole and then set the screw.

Its all fun and games until you break the fiber midspan. Or get it through but have individual broken fibers you dont know about.
