Easy to get rid of. Spray sections with water with a lawn sprayer, let it soak in, scrap the popcorn off like pudding. Let it dry, re-texture, then you have a brand new room. Wear your WWI respirator just in case.

NO, easy for YOU to say -

But, thanks for the DIY hints.

Thanks for the heads-up. I usually try to run all my gas tools dry when I use them unless I now I'll be using them again within a week or two. Good to know about the marine Stabil @NoHaveMSG hadn't thought of that.

Replaced the pressure relief valve on the water heater today. Now I have hot water again.

{img} yay! {\img}

The antique has survived and the family home is still intact.
Got a new valve down in Or. and didn't pay any sales tax on it. There! mr. smarmy plumber.


I've had good results getting lacquer out of the jets with a bit of Seafoam in the first couple tanks of a season for small engines.
I've had an Echo string trimmer for over 20 years that's still working fine.
Was going to rebuild the carb for the first time last year, but found that a new carb was only $12 so went with that instead.
I keep Marine Stabil in the gas cans too.

NOW, what will be your excuse for not taking a shower?

You drove all the way down to Oregon to buy pressure relief valve just to save on the sales tax?

Swallowed the hook that time. I'll wait for the explanation before chiding him for not stopping by to say hi.

Oh man. My parents went camping with my uncle and his family. My aunt's nephew is staying with them for a couple weeks. I guess the kids mom is very over protective. One of the kids who was like 6 offered him a piece of gum. He has never had any gum before, he wasn't allowed. So he is asking questions like, "how long do you chew it for?" And, "what do you do with it when you are done?" I guess the week before amazon delivered a package to the house and he brought it to my aunt to ask her to open it for him because he wasn't allowed. There could be something dangerous inside and he isn't allowed to use scissors or a knife because they are dangerous. He's 20.
