The dish washer wasn't getting the dishes clean any more, so I popped her one time - then she popped me back and sent me to Lowes. Spent most of Saturday going back and forth to Lowe's trying to get the right hoses. Apparently the old models put the water intake on the right rear, the new one...of course left front.

That cant be fun.....it's my wife's thing, i just have to help herd the sheep (along with our border collie), manhandling them to the guy shearing...the fun part is stripping the stalls after the manure buildup from all winter...have the best tomatoes on the block though!!!

I installed about 200 sq. ft. of insulation, and hung 14 sheets of drywall in the new wine cellar.

The wife was doing the paste & tape work on the outside of the walls while I worked on the inside...

It needed to be replaced. I wish it was like a Stars and Stripes and worth repairing. Technology has passed our little dishwasher by.

That is a pretty cool site....Wish they sold parts for Carrier Air Conditioners, oh well..

I designed the room myself. I looked at all the racking that was available, and also did some research into building it myself (cheaper to buy the kits and assemble them). Once I picked a racking company, I laid out the units and sized the room. Then I built the room based on some information I found on a website. If you'd like all the design info, racking companies, and design information links, I can PM them to you...

Here's a drawing of the layout:

This weekend was "River Draw Down". It is the weekend they drop the river water level 4 feet so people can put in their docks and such. Me and two neighbors leveled some docks in our local "Marina" and spent hours on the a$$ end of a 4" water line removing the silt (see black mud) that washes into the slips throughout the course of the year. Although the volume of water coming out of this thing is high, it takes a long time and walking in 12 deep muck is taxing to say the least. If you have ever been on the end of one of these (see quincyfirefighter) you know how my shoulders feel this morning. :wavey:
