Thread: Supper tonight

    Default Supper tonight

    I smoked a brisket a couple of weeks ago and we are going to have BBQ
    sandwiches. (Coarse chop/shread the smoked brisket and heat in a tiny
    bit of your favorite BBQ sauce. Serve on a roll with raw onions and
    pickles)

    If I wanted to, I could call out for dinner because our phone now works.
    A friend at church works for the phone company and saw Becca's posting
    on Facebook saying our phone lines were out. He got a buddy working on
    the repair to patch us through temporarily until the permanent repairs
    are made.

    Sometimes I get by with a little help from my friends!

    George L.,

    You don't have a cell phone??? For times like your landline outage it's
    vital to be reachable. There are cheap wireless plans (pay as you go, etc.)
    out there and the cell phones can be cheap if not free.

    You two enjoy your supper. On occasion, I do something similar only with
    store bought tubs of Lloyds or Curly's.

    Best,

    Andy

    Yes I do... a prepaid TracFone. No problem calling out, but when my
    land line is down, I can't route my incoming toll-free calls through the
    cell.

    egg wash and rolled in seasoned corn flake crumbs in the oven after that for
    about 20 minutes.

    In a winter squash mood - bought Acorn, Spaghetti and Butternut
    squashes today.... not making anything squashy tonight though.

    Attempting bolognese sauce for the second time - didn't like how I did
    it the first time (used white wine then, red wine now). Thinking that
    what I really want is lots of garlic and oregano in tomato-ee sauces
    because this stuff tastes like something is missing.

    anymore since they stopped warming them on that roller thingie and my
    local Costcos don't use Hebrew National anymore - unless we get lucky.

    Our pool builder accidentally cut the phone line on the side of the
    house last month. We didn't even realize they'd been cut when they
    called the phone company who came out within 2 hours. The phone
    repairman said it was an easy fix so he told the pool guys he'd list the
    repair as if we (the homeowners) had accidentally cut the wires. He said
    if he listed it as anyone but the homeowners causing the damage the
    repair would be billed to the pool company at near $500. I'm sure that
    made our pool builder happy.

    Of course, at the time the pool builder was acting as an agent of the
    homeowner, so that's iffy.

    A pool builder/contractor is wholey responsible for damages caused by
    the contractor doing the job, especially to utilities where digging is
    involved.

    Here it would be the phone repairman commiting the fraud, however I
    can't imagine the phone company employee would lie about damage that
    if a superviser inspected (which would likely occur) would obviously
    determine was caused during the installation of a new pool, not
    something a homeowner did. The repairman would likely lose his job so
    I find this story very iffy.

    Anyway a legitimate pool builder would have filed a request with the
    local utility companys for them to mark buried service before
    excavation begins, then it would be a simple matter to determine who
    made the error. Any licensed contractor knows that it's illegal to
    dig within utility easements without permission in writing from the
    utility companys... the installation of a pool would require filing
    for permits with the town as well, the town engineer would inspect
    too, several times as the job progressed.

    Underground wires would be encased in hard piping and buried some 36"
    deep, no way will a phone repairman lie that the homeowner severed
    wires during a pool installation.

    You are right for a change. I wish I could give our pool away. Really
    bad decision to build a pool. You will rue the day. Large hole in
    ground that will be seldom used for a really high cost plus never ending
    maintenance. The chemicals will always be expensive and the homeowner
    will purchase every jug under the sun to dump in their hole in the
    ground. In the mean time the hole will attract all the dirt in the
    neighborhood while the owner scurries to get it back out. The hole will
    always have something trying to grow and the owner will eventually get a
    pool service who screw it up really well.

    Five years or so down the road the hole will need re-plastering or
    (gasp) a new liner. If you do a liner pool - double stupid. You have
    hole with a plastic bag covering it up. My pool builder gets more call
    to fill 'em back in than to build 'em.

    You are now a slave to your hole.

    Enjoy!

    Phone lines are a dying breed. :-( Pity, I still have one of those 2+
    inch thick 3 foot sections of phone line I paylayed off a phone truck
    circa early 1970's. Still using the thin insulated copper wires out of
    it too! Most recently to tie up tomato plants:

    http://oi39.tinypic.com/22auk0.jpg

    Note the bluish/grey wire at 9-10 o'clock to the tomato, around the
    stake!! Best twist ties in the world! :-)

    That type of installation would have nothing to do with the homeowner
    severing wire, not unless it was the homeowner driving the excavation
    equipment... I bet Goomba never sat a backhoe.
