second time i heard ghost walking today, still dont know what it means.

thanks for the kudos, sick and tired of doing them and just about everything else that has to do with lights or even electric work. trimmed out a 2 br apt today in one day. think i set a record but i had a helper. few lights. of course, one glass globe from HD was cracked. i hate pendant lights cause they all have to be the same length. i hate attics. i hate insulation. but crawls are the worst. i like the $$ tho but got 0 in the bank so that might tell you something. retirement? what's that?

far as my car goes i blew up the trans last night and have to shop for both that and order a radiator for my truck ....again. and pay my mort. AND my sept. state sales tax. buddy can ya spare a dime?

A ghost walk tour is just a tour of an area that has a lot of unexplained "activity", for lack of a better term. We took a "Haunted St. Augustine" tour while we were in Florida a couple of years ago. Last night was a tour of Colonial Williamsburg. He led us around town, told us about the history of the town, and told about different "experiences" that people have had in the area, especially in some of the 88 buildings that are original to the colonial days. Pretty cool stuff, even for a skeptic.

Bullheimer, I hear ya on the attics, insulation, and especially crawls. Every time I have to do something in my crawl, I think that the guys who do this for a living don't get paid enough. Sometime in the next day or two I have to go under and find out why the condensate drain pipe from my HVAC unit is dripping under there. I noticed it when I was under there reworking my dryer vent a couple of months ago. I'm hoping it's just condensation on the pipe... When my mom said that she wanted pendant lights in the kitchen, I told her to look around and find what she wanted BEFORE it got hot again. I knew it would take me a while, and I didn't want to bake like a turkey in an oven. They will have to be tweaked a little for height as the cords hang 'flat', but they are done otherwise. Flipped the switch and no cracks, pops, sizzles or sparks.

took my brides chrysler 300 in for recalls . after 8 years they finally came up with parts. low and behold 3 days later the horn went nuts . took it back and they want 1500 to replace the TIPM . this car was flawless until it went in . discovered they did not disconnect the batt before doing it. then yesterday it ate the starter while she was driving it. this same dealership screwed up the oil change twice so i should have known better.
i'm no wrench but i'll be damn if a dealer ever touches anything of mine again .

Been on 2 ghost walks, both started at cemeteries, involved murders and strange happenings, spookiest place I've been to was the tour underneath Edinburghs royal mile in Scotland, all an underground settlement 100s of years ago, I wouldn't ever go back there.

Today I watched the last NASCAR race of the season. Martin Truex Jr won, both the race and the season championship. He has always seemed like the most genuine guy out there, so good to see him get such a reward. He and his long-time girlfriend (Sherry Pollix) - herself a long-time cancer victim looked so good up there on the podium.

Today was the last race for Dale Earnhart Jr and for Danica Patrick in their full-time racer careers

Now that sounds like a special day David. Special, for sure.

By the time I went to church, stayed for the Thanksgiving fellowship dinner, came home and took my knap, it was just too late to do anything constructive.

Yup, a good day........
