Wiring a Garage Part 2

I dug out my underground trench. I dug a 35 foot trench. This is going to cost me, in electrical wire! It should be 18 inches deep, but depending on what type of underground conductor you have, you could go less deeper with higher quality cable ( metal cable). I also then took off a piece of drywall, to drill through my cement. I think maybe hammer in a stick of dynamite... Nah... They sell drills for this job, but, I think you have to cool them down with water every so many inches you go. But, this is the first time I do this. I have a 7/8 th drill bit ( the only one I could find to fit my wire through) ( my electrical wire, that is).

So, now, just to decide when to call the electrician to do the job. These buggers charge 35 dollars an hour, and, sometimes they bring a buddy to drill the holes. One company wants just a service charge of 78 dollars just to say hello. In the old days, there seemed to be more competition and more workers around to bring the wages down to a fair value. We need more electricians like Joe Mechanic in the Sarah Palin world!

Till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
