Having the old-not-antique lamp on my bedside table fritz out this morning (and no, it's not just the bulb). It's an old-not-antique family thing and I will be sorry to lose it. Might see if I can take it somewhere to be fixed. It needs a new shade too. {#Idea}

The last couple of days it has been raining hard up here on the northern tip of the Sonoran Desert. (Though whether our region of sage brush steppe is actually part of the Sonoran Desert is subject to debate.)

Delayed garden and lawn irrigation by 2 days.

Yes.  We are slowly but steadily working on replacing all the Victorian lawn.  Bright green Victorian-style lawns in deserts and semi-arid sage brush steppe are not aesthetically appealing.

Just saw this.  Too tired to dig up anything now.  I'll find the right info and make a post over in the Other Medical Stuff thread soon.

Here's some trade info for now.

I pmed Kurt and he suggested I look at  Other Medical Stuff thread.

Excellent stuff!   I just scoured the thread for all of Kurtster's posts related to eye sight.  I highly recommend them.

I was also totally impressed with his economic intuition.  Turns out Kurt has a degree in Business Administration.  No wonder.....  I mention this because it is important to understand the material incentives of professional care givers when weighing advice and options.

——————————————————-

Incidentally, in the same thread, I ran into a post by what I believe is an American woman who complained about her obstinate, stubborn optometrist who insisted on ordering something for her she did not want.  Kurt advised her to find another.

Reminds me of a woman complaining about coming home after "getting her hair done" and re-washing it to get all the gel and other stuff out that her hairdresser insisted on applying over her objections.

Look.  Some men are equal opportunity abusers.  Even some women are pushy.  Some women should learn that "no" is "no" only if you really mean it and move on quickly if the service providers insists on something the client does not want.  

For better or worse, most service providers take "no" from a 6 1/2 foot white male without too much difficulty.  But at the end of the day, it is all in your head.  Tiny women less than 5 feet tall can be just as or more ferociously independent than 6 foot plus males.  

End of thread hi-jack.

This week has been my own personal episode of 'Dirty Jobs'. I had to clean the drain line in the sink where the AC condensate drains. The AC kept cutting off because the drain line backed up. Sink drain? Three words: Dis. Gus. Ting.

All good now, but the gross factor was high with this one.

Yes, that lovely, black slime with the pleasant aroma that lingers in one's sinuses for the rest of the day - especially when it's a kitchen sink.

Thanks Scott.  I will pm Kurster.

Plumbing on vacation. -hehe- On the bright side, at least you know how to do basic plumbing.  A big chunk of the planet has no clue.  

It is like swimming.  A big chunk of the planet cannot swim.  Educated folks from rich countries can swim.
