Feb 22nd FIRE!!!

Posted by Bill Bickford on Tuesday, February 22, 2011,
    Holy shit!!!  What a night.  I was sleeping nice and sound last night and was woken up by a pounding on the door.  We had a fire in our supposedly "safe" house.  The term for "safe" house has nothing to do with the physical being of the house as it has years old electrical wiring done by inferior electricians.  There was an electrical fire that burned out a light and a lot of wiring and would have been a lot worse if it had been a few feet further away from where it was. Woke up to smoke,...

    Happy Groundhog Day everyone!!!  Well, not sure but think winter is going to go a lot longer here.  Today it started off with rain, then it turned into snow and then sleet and then all 3 were coming down at the same time.  It's been freezing here tonight and I'm betting we'll see some ice in the morning.  Should be a nice walk back to my room after I get off work. 
I'm also working on a few things to make some changes and hoping for the best.  ...
