      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    We need plumbers, and other Contractors from time to time, for various repairs on rental condos. I have had some really good luck using Home Advisor to find various professionals in different Counties where the properties are located. A few weeks ago, a plumber went to an apartment that needed a new tub-shower valve cartridge, new tub faucet and drain. After spending a couple minutes looking at the tub, he called and gave me a verbal estimate of $1,600.00. He said the price was right out of a rate book, which I guess was for Commercial plumbing rates, kind of like car repair shops use. I politely thanked him for his time, and sent him on his way. Had a nearly identical job done in another county last week for less than half of that amount. I am no longer much interested in DIY, but neither am I interested in getting needlessly hosed. EDIT, the last time I had a total bathroom renovation done was years ago, but the entire cost was around $1,500.00 for nearly everything replaced with brand new fixtures, flooring, etc.....

  7. F@#%ing Mice in car anarchy.

    I had a Nissan Maxima years ago. We came back from a weeks vacation, and the car ran just fine. Several weeks later when I took it in for a regular LOF service, and they found the intake snorkel over 2/3 blocked by a mouse nest. They were shocked that there were apparently no ill effects, or performance loss. Another time, had a mouse nest in the small Johnson outboard for our 10 foot Boston Whaler. I had to splice together a couple of wires that were chewed right in half, after cleaning out the nest mess. I gave up on snap traps years ago. best thing is the sticky glue on cardboard, with some peanut butter in the middle. But you must punch a hole in the corner and tie it to something fixed, like a pipe. Have had the traps dragged off and never found again, nor the critter that dragged it away. Often the mouse is still alive and wriggling, when found in a glue trap. I just "wash" them, and then they can safely be let go anywhere. Washing entails dropping the glue trap, mouse side down, in the toilet, and leaving for 5 minutes or so. When you return, the mouse is all clean, and can be disposed of anywhere!! LOL!

    Lots of folks come much further east, like Westbrook or Noank. You are much closer to interesting places to visit on your boat, but an hours drive in your car on either end.
