    Patching lead drain lines in an old Seattle home, any good ideas?

    A family project for a home destined to be bulldozed when the current owner dies. In the meantime, lead drain lines with holes in them, and no money to replace with new. It's a reverse mortgage that needs to have working plumbing, but really no money to do it with. Patching lead, something I've...

    Man in the moon or woman in the moon? What do you see?

    I've often heard about the "Man in the moon", but seldom heard about the female version of the moon. There are cultures that have that version too. What is a feminine moon? A lunar cycle and a menstrual cycle both take about 28 days. (The common “m-n” prefix of “menstrual”, “Moon”, and “month”...

    Testing for COVID

    I was feeling a bit ragged the last few days and was supposed to be taking care of a daughter after her surgery, so figured we should take the in home covid tests to make sure we were good to go.

    Moldy floor near toilet, is it the seal or something else?

    Posting for a friend from Pittsburgh who is trying to determine a fix for this. Mold has been showing up near the toilet bowl, but the floor is dry. A bit confusing as normally you would think it's from the toilet seal. Mold to the right of the bowl. Water streaking on the wall. But...

    Regular or Premium in my plumbing vans?

    When I bought my vans, a G3500 Chevy Box van and a Ford E250 Econoline, I was running regular, just like what it said to use in the manual. And yes, the Ford would ping going up hills, but that was how it ran. Then my mechanic told me that I should be using at least the mid grade. I tried it...

    New seals for this Delta faucet, but I'm telling the customer that there are some very sharp edges to deal with here. What about your young kids using the bathroom sink, aren't you worried that someone might cut themselves?

    Uncle Gary And Sasquatch. The Call.

We brought our ice axes, which it turned out were well needed...

    Early childhood memories, what were yours?

    What is interesting to me is early childhood memories. Hopefully we all have them, some good, some bad I suppose. Not too traumatic I hope. One very early memory I've always had was the time my mother left me in my crib while she was in the other room doing, well, maybe doing nothing but taking...
