    If anyone was interested the ceiling fan is installed, I didn't shock myself, and nothing seems to be burning yet. So in my book this was a top shelf install. LOL

    LOL. I have never heard of a cat filter before. Too funny.

    A Lawyer going before a Judge in a Zoom hearing with no idea how to turn off his cat filter sums up the last year well.

    One hour into the process and only managed to get the old one down, installed new support bracket*, and fed through and trimmed wiring on the new fan.

    Last time I hired someone to do this and it took them a total of 15 minutes or less!

    *Old bracket had a screw with a stripped head which needed to come out. That was rough work.
    I hardly do anything myself anymore. Pay for most of it or get a friend over to help.

    I feel you. My hands are fine but I have rotator cuff issues in both shoulders and lifting something over my head is very painful. I have a light fixture that is 12 feet up and I want to replace it with a ceiling can and lights. I have avoided it because I know how much pain it will cause. Good luck on finishing, I do not envy you.

    There really is some good stuff available. In these charity auctions the items often go for above what you could buy the item directly for and that is the case for some of these items currently. There remains some good buys at this point.

    Now that I know that Jeffingoff's Magic Duff bucket is from The Simpsons rather than a Chicago brewery when I see Simpsons things I think of Mr. Terry. For those who do not know Matt Groening is from Portland Oregon. He has donated a price of Simpsons Quarantine art to Lincoln High School, which he attended.

    Bidding starts at $3,700 and ends February 12th.

    That is a pretty photo but looks chilly. Drive safe and stay warm.

    We got a lot of snow last night, and it's heavy stuff. I shoveled everything this morning so my wife could get to work, and I'll have at least one more round of shoveling before we're done. It looks nice, though!

    All the snow we got was much needed. I did shovel a lot snow too. ~Cap
