as far for the small hole in the meter I know few peoples done that but I have see worst than that.

I thought all of those meters were built so as NOT to run backwards.

Precisely...and that is no doubt the reason that everyone likes to see if they can "fix" them!

I'd enjoy "fixing" mine.........with my damned shotgun!!!

I have a story about [those guys] too but don't have the time right now. Suffice it to say I rank them (power companies) right up there at the top of my list just below FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

Shouldn't that be Standard "Chartered" Bank.

See what I mean? They are all idiots, idiots I say, IDIOTS.

Go ahead and authorize ole Timmy to get your money on your behalf I'm sure he will be on your doorstep with your share by next Monday morning.

Wouldn't a major player at Barclay's Bank also have a Barclay's Bank.com email address? Idiot!!!

Yeah...I thought you'd like that one.

Just got another one, but it's only for $5.5 million...hardly worth reading...

Only this one is from a bank in Arkansas! Sure it is.

"did not provide any power of an attorney from you which will proof that you thoroughly send them, This was to enable me contact you to verify how genuine this people are to you."

If they weren't so busy being crooks, they'd have time for an English class or two.

Like they say though, if they're not smart enough to hold down an honest job, they aren't smart enough to be successful crooks.

I think it would be fun to contact them as if you really fell for it. Then send them some Monopoly money. But just xeroxed copies. You wouldn't want to send them the real thing and ruin your game.

Right...their English - or is that Engrish - has always impressed me too.

Got yet another awesome offer yesterday...this one from Hong Kong and worth $18.35 million. Honest to gosh, what I am I gonna do with all this money??? I think I'll hold out for $20 million!

Started to have a go at the flooring in the top hallway yesterday. I made the bullnose piece which is supposed to transition into the actual flooring. The only practical way to attach it was with screws.

I sandwiched the foam underlay between the bullnose and the subfloor, and although it's a no-no I'm going to use some small nails - or possibly some small screws - to hold the first piece of flooring in place. I really don't care if someone spots the screws. Maybe I will put a dot of matching paint on the screw heads.

Any movement, and it's a safe bet there will be some, will have to take place elsewhere. Fortunately, the distance from the top of the stairs to the far side of the floor is not too large. Perhaps 8 feet or so.

Should be able to get a pic later.

Keith, I would have done the flooring the same way at that place. I usually just plug the hole where I put a screw and sand it off. It is good to see you feel like doing something, I know the weather does make a person not feel like doing much sometimes. Maybe you will have a bunch of warm sunny days where you feel really good, I hope so buddy.

hmmmmm....warm, sunny days...wouldn't that be nice. Maybe about June next year at this rate!

The thickness of the flooring is only 8 mm, (just under 1/3") so there really isn't much sense in trying to countersink & plug. Besides, I don't think the hardboard would take kindly to plugging. Not to mention that it would be quite impossible to try and match the aluminum oxide finish.

Anything around here that looks oddball is referred to as "character"...then I guess that would include me as well!!!

I see your point, that would be a little hard to match. ROFAICGU (rollin on floor and I can't get up)
