Garage door opener works great

The new garage door opener. It works, great. I have a control direct wired to the garage opener motor. Up and down, function. There is a lock and unlock function on it as well. Then, the remote you can put in your car. It can program up to 7 codes in it, or open 7 things, yet I have a hard time to understand that one, as it has only 3 buttons on it. You can press the car remote to make it go up, press it to stop if need be, and then press it to go down.

The third remote is a key entry, where you have to put in an access code, and then press on the up or down button to open the door. I am not sure if I will use this one, but who knows. It can stay on the outside wall of the garage.

Also, the tension is set, so that when I put a block of wood underneath, it stops without smashing the door or the block of wood. The settings are right on the motor, turn a screw one way or the other to set the tension. Then, on the motor, there are up and down buttons which can move the door up and down as well.

It is a chain drive, as the garage is not hooked to the house. For quiet, you may want a screw type if your garage is hooked to your house. But, I do not find the chain drive bad, as it only opens once in a blue moon. If your bedroom is hooked close to the garage, I can see why maybe someone would want the screw drive. Especially if you are working late at night. All of these garage door openers are pretty much the same, and the light comes on and stays on for a few minutes once you activate it. Craftsman, Genie, and Chamberlain make great door openers for at least around 190 bucks Canadian, 1/2 hp.

The most important  thing, is to test the motion sensors at the bottom, to see if the door will stop if a cat or a dog runs under the door. It will stop, flash the lights, and then retract for safety.  Also, testing the motors stopping function over a piece of wood is good too..

Besides that, no news on the book.. Have a super day, 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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
