I have called upon a Supreme Being to assist me in this effort, but She hasn't called back yet.

Listen you guys: this includes Speedy, JRClen, JV, Stubbie, Chris, Joed and Nap. We need to have a GFCI summit. My place. I'll supply the booze, the patio, the table and ashtrays (Stub-I'll have the non-alcoholics too, I promise!). We'll f'ing talk about this forum! That conversation will go until dawn, I imagine! You guys all rock!

PS-Sorry. I forgot Micromind. That guy is the rotating machinery master! Come liquor with us.

Peace,
Jimmy

Speedy,

Based on your funny as "H" response here (not to mention others elsewhere in this forum), I figured you had to be from NYC. You are classic my friend

Marc-

Sorry to have inadvertently forgotten to address you in my invite. You're more than welcome too, of course! And John's not invited unless he brings the pipes!

I'm not sure I would want to go to the windy city area right now. The Gov. is offering to send in the guard to help fight crime. Whats up with that?

Piece of travel advice for you, JBfan. When visiting Chicago, never get in a cab and say "south side" or "west side" and you'll be fine (although I must admit: "south side" is pretty broad. There are a ton of good ole south-side Irish boys down there!).

I live just on the outside of the city these days where it's safe! No gun shots reported on my patio lately!

And a ton of good Irish pubs. My buddies and I took our bag pipes down there one day. To say we had a lot of fun would be the understatement of the year. We even had the Irish cops coming in after their shift, some with pipes. And I'm pretty sure there were some Scotsmen in the crowds. Drinking north sea crude (Guinness).

Your get together sounds good to me Jim.

Well my problem solved itself. Since I posted I plugged back into the GFI and the washer no longer trips.
It is very humid in my basement. 64% I am not sure if that had something to do with it or if something slashed where it should not and then dried out in the last couple weeks.

It is still humid down there so I can not see that being the only reason. I ran two loads just fine.
Hmmm
