: Unless your own home, like the shoemaker's kid's shoes or the carpenter's house, is the last thing that gets done completely and correctly.

Oh, it always gets done correctly, but, ya, it takes a while. Bought a place with a half gold, half white toilet that needed a new flush valve. Took me forever to get to that.

: : : Unfortunately I am about to get laid off at my job. I am considering going to the local votech school for plumbing. I'm 33 years old but in good physical condition. Is this too old to begin a career in plumbing? Will employers hire plumbing apprentices this old? The job market seems good for plumbers, am I correct? Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you

: : I was older than that (and a woman) when I started plumbing. A good plumber will always have a job. Study hard and do every job like it was your own home.
