Got bored this morning so I bought some under cabinet lighting and put it in. Mrs. Ice has been hinting she would like some for about 3 years.

I actually had gone out with the intent of buying ( with Mrs. Ice's blessing ) a generator but couldn't bring myself to put out the $650 for the one I would like.

In the end only kindness matters

Nope. I want to have power to my shed and I really don't want to run it from my house. It would be about the same price as a generator plus we'd have the added security of back-up power for the house.

A couple of years ago we had a power outage for 12 hours on a 100+ day. This way we could have at least one cool room with our portable a/c unit and some lighting, fans etc. and yes, keep the fridge running.

Spending the day shopping with the family. Just drove by a "Men's Spa 18+ Only" sign on the side of a warehouse out in the middle of nowhere. I'm sure it is a legitimate business.

Woo-hoo, good shopping day. Discovered the fridge I want was evidently only discontinued by Best Buy. Didn't have my credit card with me, but I'll go back tomorrow and order it.

And husband just ordered this, the price came down:

Motion activated sprinkler. Does that mean when someone walks by it will turn on and spray them?

To answer everyone, mainly for deer and raccoons and skunks. From what I've read, though, the trick is to remember to turn it off during the day or you or the meter reader might get soaked.

Where I used to live, there was a little hotel/truck stop right off the interstate that advertised renting rooms by the hour & spa/massage services. They constantly had ads out in the paper to hire females over the age of 18. Again, I am sure it was totally legit.

Don't let NightGhost convince you that you need an intervention, involving chocolate syrup. IT'S A TRAP!!!!

I have under the cabinet lighting. The lights are great, but they burn out fast and they're expensive. At least mine are. Have to replace the bulbs with a rubber glove on.

There's too many of those around here to count. I like the ones that have "arcade" on the sign, 'cause you know there's no video games in there.

Bazinga!

I decided on the LED variety that are supposed to last 25 years.They aren't as bright as the halogen or xenon lights but...

ummm... you do know that the term "arcade" has been around a lot longer than video games have existed, right? it's basically an architecture term for a covered hallway, typically with arches and/or shopping stalls along the sides.

Evening all. Tired. Worked all day at an elementary school doing imaging. Not too hot though, so that was good.

"doing imaging" like scanning docs into a database?

Imaging computers. Wiping them clean and putting new OS & software on them. The McAfee fiasco in April killed us. Even with their fix, many of our computers were unstable so we had to reimage every computer in the school district.

surprised you all didnt just push the image over the network, i think one of the versions of ghost works that way. might just be if you have ghost installed on all the pcs though.

edit: i have only used the dos version of ghost.

We do. It's done through ZenWorks but we still have to start it at each computer and each school has their own software that goes on top of the base image. Labs are multicasted.

EDIT: Plus, doing one school of a couple hundred computers really brings the network to a screeching halt. =\

Haha, I think I'll pass. I've never even gone to any kind of strip bar. Heck, I've never even been to a "Hooters" or similar establishment. I doubt the "Men's Only Spa" would be anywhere near to something I would go to.

This one has "Arcade" on one side, and "Men's Gym and Spa 18+ only" on the another side... a few other things I can't remember.
