Cell phone madness

Worst purchase ever was buying an LG G4 cell phone. Although I do have a love for the machine. The design was clean and nice with user replaceable battery to boot. Plus it could act like a IR remote control since my actual remove controls with membrane buttons have failed more than their share. The […]

Mr. Fix it

Ok, not Marvel’s Grey Hulk but feeling a bit good. The shower head was always spraying at the neck. Somehow the washer inside the hose got all twisted and mangled.

Flying is no fun now

I’m in Alabama at the moment. Wife flew down a few weeks before me. I had similar/same problems as she did when she flew through Dallas Fort Worth. It’s COVID, I get it, but you would think the Airline would ‘fix’ their schedule or something to avoid a hot mess at their hub. Apparently not.
