    The Hummer Thread Vol.2!!!

    Must be a California thing. Definitely not fun having to install them all in every house each time we move.

    Wendy, we have outlets so you can plug lights in, and one outlet in each room is hooked to the light switch by the door so you can put a standing light that'll turn on and off with the switch, but there are no actual lights embeded in the ceiling. It was the same with our house in Irvine too. I had them all installed and wired up after we moved in. But down there, I lucked out and found a handyman who does EVERYTHING. He used to build houses from the ground up in Columbia. So no matter what I needed done, he could do it. He even remodeled my kitchen. Stripped it down to concrete and dry wall and re-did the entire thing. Wiring the lights. built my patio cover there. Did built in closet drawers and put up a ton of book cases for my husband (custom built). Here, I can barely find anyone to do basic stuff. I do have a guy to do yard repairs now. And he's even reasonable. but still working on other issues and each one needs a specialist it seems. No do it all handymen around here.

    My DIY projects tend to be sporatic, and usually done in the spring or summer when the weather is a tad more tolerable. Especially the outside projects. Most things we've needed to get done were too much for DIY though. Like replacing the roof. Replacing the fence. Replacing the garage door. Installing the BBQ. All the landscaping I've done pretty much by myself (just had a family friend help with some of the yard things finishing up after my medical emergency last year - still have to curtail what I personally do in the yard, which is frustrating). But the next major thing is to get an electrician out here. Many of the existing lights have issues and most of the rooms don't even have lights in them. So I need to replace almost all the existing lights and install new lights in all the bedrooms (I don't know why that is not just standard in a house) and the TV and living rooms need ceiling lights plus DH wants to have internet wired through the walls into most of the rooms. Definitely would be more useful than the wifi that can be more than a bit spotty. I have a line running along the walls into my office area because I couldn't get consistent internet to my desktop.. It'd be nice to have all those hidden "in" the walls. First world problems and all that

    I did mention I wasn’t fluent. And mostly was trying to lighten up the conversation in the tread anyway. Happy sunday day to all

    That’s bad humor BTW. I’m having insomnia so figured I might as well dive into the deep end

    Sorry. It’s the little bit of German I actually know so my cdo kicked in for a minute and I was compelled to respond.

    Kinder is the german word for children. Gartin is the german word for garden. So it's a garden of children, which pretty much explains what kindergarten level of schooling is IMO.

    Always good to get sales (I'm presuming that's what you mean by the appreciation). Bought the paint two years ago to paint my bathroom upstairs (long story short - the people we bought this house from painted latex paint over enamel. Never a good idea. So the whole room needed to be sanded and repainted due to peeling) but since I have trouble with arm strength, I've been putting it off. Friend of my husbands painted it for me today. Looks much better. At some point I'll need to do the bathroom downstairs too, but that paint isn't peeling nearly as badly so I've been putting it off too. At least it's only about 1/4 the size of the upstairs bathroom since it's only a half bath so it won't take nearly as much work.

    In Southern California, we would occattionally get hail storms with "rocks" the size of marbles, which were definitely painful. But I've never seen anything bigger than that fortunately. Today it's mirroring Hawaii weather, but without the humidity. It can be sunny on one side of the street and raining on the other. So weird. We just had a sudden rain system blow through that lasted all of 5 min if that and now it's sunny skies again. I should do some time lapse video. I have an training program to attend though so probably won't have time til later today and by then it'll probably be sorted out. The map for weather prediction for the week keeps vacillating between cloudy overcast and rain. Yssterday it was saying rain most f the week. Now it's saying cloudy but sunny.

    Naw, they were all less than pea sized. It was more the novelty of it all

    We had a 10 min hail storm today. So weird. Sunny, then suddenly clouds and then torrential downpour with hail. By the time I got downstairs and out the front door, it had decreased to light hail then in 2 more min, it was gone. 5 min later the sun was back out...
