    At the request of Southwire we must either type while holding down the Alt key 0174 when talking about “romex® or refer to it as NM-B, NM, or non-metallic cable.

    You adherence will be greatly appreciated.

    "Why would I give a rats a$$ about south west wire ?"

    Good answer BobL. You should get a Gold Star.

    I would gladly give up some of my Field Rats, Butt and all for some Copper ®Romex wire.

    I would have to save some of the Rat Butts for my cats to kick and for the Snakes to eat tho.

    You're welcome. Glad I saved that old picture to use some day. you can call it Romex®


    Just hold down the ALT key and press 0174 on the numeric keypad if you did not already know that.

    If you were in NY like me, I'd have you pegged as a troublemaker from the start, but I give you more credit to start being you are in layed back California

    so did I mean laid back or layed back?
