The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American. O. Henry


Quote II

I give thanks to my Creator for this wonderful life where each of us has the opportunity to learn lessons we could not fully comprehend by any other means. Joseph B. Wirthlin


Quote III

Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie. Jim Davis


I was off the grid on vacation Thursday through Tuesday. I want to publicly thank KT, CBD and Buck Throckmorton for filling in for me. It was greatly appreciated. Thank you. That being said, tonight's ONT is a rusty one.

I suspect this woman is quite happy. And will be extremely Thankful.

A GROUP of medical students fled in horror after a "dead woman" they were about to embalm suddenly opened her eyes, got up and walked out of the morgue, it is reported.

The anatomy students from the University of Benin Teaching Hospital in Nigeria were about to do an embalming class on the woman, according to local reports.

There was great news this past Friday. Here is one Thankful young man.

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM

Prep your organs to eat as much food as possible on Thanksgiving
Get stuffed.

Every Thanksgiving, Americans gather to celebrate family, give thanks, and stuff our faces until we all feel sick. Tragically, filling up too fast on a good holiday meal means you won’t manage to grab seconds or thirds of all the best dishes on the table. You need to maximize your intake—here’s how to eat more food on Thanksgiving.

Note: This advice is not conducive to a healthy everyday diet. But then again, neither is Thanksgiving.

Prepare
Getting ready for the big meal is a matter of balance. To consume as much as possible, you’ll need to start on an empty stomach. But if you’re starving, you’ll eat too quickly instead of pacing yourself.

“Fasting is typically not a good idea,” says registered dietician Leslie Bonci. Instead, she recommends that you follow your regular meal schedule, but stop eating four to six hours before the main event.

Carjacking suspect leaves selfie behind in robbery on southeast side; ‘I looked and was like, ‘Oh, my God”

INDIANAPOLIS — Police in Indianapolis are searching for an armed carjacker who they say attacked a woman outside of an assisted living center in broad daylight on the southeast side.

Fortunately, police say the woman was able to give them a clear clue to work with.

“I was just in shock, but I was really scared. Really, really scared,” said Megan Whisler.

She was sitting in her 2005 Ford Five Hundred Monday morning around 10 in the parking lot of an assisted living center while her mom was inside visiting with a relative.

The ONT has been known to take shots at the NFL. However, all of the players aren't douchebags. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Six people have died as a result of Sunday’s attack at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin. A familiar NFL star and Wisconsin native has now offered a gesture to help the families of those victims as they heal.

“J.J. Watt is covering the funeral costs for everyone that lost their life in the Waukesha Christmas Parade,” Wisconsin journalist Cory Jennerjohn wrote on Twitter. “That is an amazing gesture. He has such a huge heart.”

5 First Thanksgiving without Mom. ♥

Used to be, every Thanksgiving and Christmas, her dining room was packed, with kids tables in the living room.

Last two years, all the out-of-town relatives declined to come in for the feasts, because of fear of the deadly Chinese sniffles.

However, the local crew, Milady Jo, myself, our daughter, her husband, our son VM, and cousin SS joined Mom for the holidays and birthdays. Son JC - living in Big City with his gender-fluid wife and our two grandbabies, did not attend. Their loss.

This year, we're feasting at daughter and SiL's house, with the aforedeliniated local crew. Turkey and all the usual.

Big City Son's family was invited, but, well, we haven't heard from them since Mom's funeral in August. Won't return calls, texts, or emails. Nothing. Seems we're too judgemental, racist, ignorant, Trumpian, and insufficiently flu-panicky for them, or something. So very sad.

Prayers for family unity and psychic and spiritual healing, from us for all divided families, and welcomed for us, especially our grandbabies growing up without us.

32 My great-aunt put down an epic Thanksgiving feast, and the experienced guest would breakfast lightly, perhaps two eggs at most, so that when we gathered about the *completely covered* table at 2pm we could properly pace ourselves to fold in as much of the gastronomic orgy as possible. There were always at least three pies, with LARD CRUSTS of heavenly flakiness.

Then we aided digestion with vehement "discussions", did the dishes, and it was officially the Christmas season so we repaired to the living room and sang carols. An orgy of Roman standards, I say!

There is good Green Bean Casserole and well, not so good. The traditional recipe from the back of the fried onion can or the condensed cream of mushroom soup can are yummy.

Fancy-dancy recipes of green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and dressing are the bane of Thanksgiving guests like me.

"Gref, my ten-year-old daughter wanted to cook something for Thanksgiving for the first time. She decided to try this Ojibwa-tribe recipe for cranberry sauce, made all from scratch. How does it taste?"

190 There was a conversation here regarding eggnog some months back. I was commenting about how freaking awesome the Costco-branded ("Kirkland") eggnog is but added the caveat that it's the *only* eggnog I've had.

Insomniac went on about how much he hated eggnog for its thick, snot-like consistency among other things. This confused me a bit as I find that Costco's stuff has a consistency resembling that of a White Russian made with heavy cream--which I happen to like.

Welp, I recently broke down and bought a Sam's Club membership. Upon receipt of my shiny new membership card, I, of course, immediately headed to their liquor store. Whilst there, I procured their own branded ("Member's Mark") eggnog.

Well, the flavor isn't as good as Costco's and the texture is pretty much as Insomniac described. It may be fine thrown into a blender with some ice-cream or as a cupcake ingredient (as proposed by one of the customers there) but there's no damn way I'm drinking this straight. Blech.

205 I don't know if tday will survive. Fewer and fewer people do it. Fewer people even cook for themselves. Look at hello fresh were young people go to be told how to boil water and use spices because cooking already died with their parents who just ordered out. There was a trend where cooking knowhow was passed down through women. Its been my experience that as time goes on fewer and fewer women do know or care to know with it being more likely that the man cooks because he got tired of bad food and ordering out.

Deep rot in traditional life structures, that are now starting to be visible, are going to cause things like tday to fall away. Maybe. I hope not.

268 Welp, I recently broke down and bought a Sam's Club membership. Upon receipt of my shiny new membership card, I, of course, immediately headed to their liquor store. Whilst there, I procured their own branded ("Member's Mark") eggnog.

Well, the flavor isn't as good as Costco's and the texture is pretty much as Insomniac described. It may be fine thrown into a blender with some ice-cream or as a cupcake ingredient (as proposed by one of the customers there) but there's no damn way I'm drinking this straight. Blech.

The eggnog recipe in the horde cookbook is pretty good. It's almost exactly about what my dad always makes for eggnog. I was probably in my late teens before learning that the purpose of eggnog was to add booze to it.

Ultimate use for city ham (can be used for country ham, but you need at least two changes of water):
Fry all the ham you can cram into one cast iron skillet. Enough bacon grease to keep it from sticking.
Brown, turning often. When nicely browned, pull pieces and set aside. Turn burner to medium low. Pour in about 1/4 cup of strong coffee to deglaze pan.
Crack all the eggs you can fit into the pan.
You are now poaching your eggs in red eye gravy.

Stuff that hasn't had a change in price for three years or more has had two or three price increases in the last year. Even the sale prices have seen big increases. Can't pretend it isn't an increase when the typical sale of 4 for $10 is now 4 for $12.

363 Years and years ago, I had a client, an elderly (80) black woman who was a WAC in WW2 (and rather attractive from the photos I saw), later made staff sergeant, and eventually bought a duplex in S.F., renting out one unit. She was incredibly conservative and when S.F. put 2-4 unit buildings under rent control, she flipped out and took it off the rental market with the Ellis Act. "The City can't tell me what to do with *my* property! It's my home!" God bless her. Anyway, just before one Christmas, she comes into the office with a jug of eggnog for everyone. "Now be careful, I put a lot of rum in it." Did I mention she was also a very honest person? Might as well have been called rumnog.

379 My Platonic Ideal of egg nog has the following features:

Enough egg to make it thick, but not enough that it actually tastes noticeably eggy. Quality brown rum. While white rum has its uses, it is an abomination unto the Lord for this purpose. Likewise any type of "spiced" rum. Leave that on the shelf for the sorority girls. Half and half is okay, fresh whole milk and fresh whole cream are better. Sadly, it's getting harder to find anything other than the "ultrapasteurized" crap. Fresh nutmeg. Freshly ground is better still, but at least not the stuff that's been sitting in the back of the spice rack since 1997. Raw sugar. Brown sugar is okay in a pinch. No cinnamon. Once again, cinnamon is fine in its place, but is an abomination unto the Lord for this purpose.

We were in the grocery store late this evening getting some last minute stuff. Miley's looking for something and I'm off looking for something else. I turn around, an Miley is talking to this youngish 20-something guy.

Apparently he was sent on an errand, and he asked Miley, "Excuse me ma'am, are these the right potatoes to get for mashed potatoes?"

Kid didn't know "Irish 'taters" as we call 'em from sweet potatoes from anything. Miley set him up with two bags of Russets -- he needed a lot, he said.

One of our grocery chains hires the handicapped, so many of the checkers and all of the baggers have some diminished capacity. There's one beautiful lady who bags who has Downs. She is amazing. Some of the checkers have issues as well, but they do pretty good. Sometimes they need prompts about what is what, but I don't mind that at all.

When I was a kid, there was a checker at Safeway who could pound in the prices without looking and carry on an amazing gossip with Mom at the same time. It would have made me crazy doing that, but she lived for it. Now it's mostly scan and stash.

Most of the checkers in the grocery stories around will talk and carry on with you. I think they get a feel of those who like to socialize so to speak, and those who don't. I've seen a few who are just cold fish, but most of them will be quite personable.

When I was a kid back in the '70s, I used to go to the grocery store with my paternal grandmother a lot. My father would drive her to town for groceries, usually on a Saturday. He'd drive off to do other business and I would go in the grocery with my grandmother.

I remember those days well. Price labels on most the products, requiring the checkers to key them in. I can visualize the old style of register and the old '70s grocery store ambience perfectly in my mind.

The manager of the store would sometimes come out and do bag-boy duty if business was heavy. My grandmother was something of a matriarch at our church, which the manager attended, and he would always come out and bag for my grandmother, chatting up and having a grand ol' time.

Probably a less that accurate voltmeter. :-)

What you want to do is measure all three voltages, both legs to ground, and the hot to hot voltage. If there is a big difference between the hot to ground voltages, which varies with load distribution on the legs, you may have a high resistance neutral problem, which could be a loose or bad connection.

You have to measure voltages all along the system to determine where any such problem would be.

127V, if accurate, is getting a wee bit on the high side.

Recalling the '70s grocery store experience. The regular style shopping cars we're all familiar with stayed inside the stores here. You didn't take them outside.

When you checked out, the bag boys bagged your groceries and loaded them on the outside carts, which were similar to hand trucks. They had baskets just the right size to handle those old paper grocery bag standard sized.

Those carts also had feature where you would drop a piece down somehow, which had little wheels on it, and you had a 4-wheel dolly. This was to carry the occasional big item, like huge bags of dog food or some other big thing.

I can see those hand-truck like carts in my mind perfectly, but I've never been able to find a picture online. The bag boys would use those to carry your groceries out to the car, which they would load for you, then hustle back in the store for the next customer.

561 Well that's just it, the voltage isn't "really" 127 volts inside the house? Not if the 122 volts measured at the service entrance is accurate. See where I'm goin' with that?

Posted by: Common Tater at November 25, 2021 12:24 AM (KNsfV)

Like Publius says, you measure the voltage between the hot wires, which is nominally 240 volts, and between each hot and the neutral, which should each be 120 volts.

I wonder the power company has some sort of voltage regulator on the line, and it jacks the voltage by a few volts when the load of your house appears on it?

If I turned off the main breaker, that would have been the time to measure the voltage at the service entrance now that I think about it, correct? The electrical system was under load, furnace fan, etc. I expect the 122 he measured was accurate.

I am extremely sensitive to all carbs. Don't miss fruit, but I do miss my veggies.

Well, I do eat onions and a slice of tomato when we have burgers; I use the patties as buns and have sliced onions and tomato in between.

And I also ate black berries when they were ripe, if I could beat the coons to them!

I've not ever been a fan of heavily processed foods, have always eaten relatively healthy. I did have a horrible pop problem, and gave that up. Was doing IF and keto, and felt better, but got tired of counting carbs. I am an all or nothing kinda girl, so I thought Id try the carnivore thing.

I'm convinced he survived because of divine intervention. Nobody, but nobody is that accurate in the amount of time the events unfolded. He shot Huber dead center after Huber hit him twice in the head with his skateboard after he fell down.

The Grosskreutz bullet traveled to exactly the correct place needed to end the threat and wind up with a photo of Grosskreutz holding his .40 cal Glock with his arm frozen, unable to drop it because of the damage to his arm. That photo changed the trial, as Grosskreutz had claimed to police and his lawsuit against the City of Kenosha that he was unarmed when Kyle shot him.

576 Since we are talking electrical, new oven installation, new house construction, new panel, new 40A breaker (appropriately sized), the works. Oven trips the breaker after about 100F, which I suspect is when the convection fan comes on. I checked the outlet wiring, the terminals on the back, the wiring at the panel is tight and proper.

I suspect it is AFCI tripping due to the convection fan (low load, on one hot leg, IIRC the schematic wiring).

My options are to swap out with another 40A breaker in the panel or replace with a non-AFCI breaker. Thoughts?

I've not been keeping up, but double pole, higher amperage AFCIs are a thing now?

AFCIs, like GFCIs, don't like downstream grounded neutrals. That's what that sounds like to me. They are very sensitive to even a high resistance neutral to ground path, or a slight hot to ground leakage.

I suspect that's the problem, not the breaker, although it could be. Only thing is to measure what's going on with the circuit. And to get someone who actually understands what to measure, and what those measurements mean.

Hint: a lot of so-called electricans don't know their asses from a hole in the ground about this stuff.

603 > The electrical system was under load, furnace fan, etc.

Big inductive loads (furnace blower motors, washing machines, large power tools, etc.) can cause the voltage to jump around (and yeah, that voltage can be higher.... even *much* higher, than the supply voltage).

What you're probably seeing though, is a difference in the way that your meter is calculating RMS voltage compared to the power company guy's meter.

Since the actual voltage is swinging back and forth from zero to about 170 volts constantly, so-called RMS voltage is used. In perfect circuit, without inductive or capacitive loads, you'd divide 170 by the square root of two, thus arriving at the nominal 120.

Any RMS meter is essentially "averaging" (integrating, in calculus terms) the voltage over time, and the ways that different meters carry that process out aren't the same. They will probably read pretty close to the same if the waveform is a perfect sine wave, but if there are any loads on the line, it's not going to be the pure sine wave that you see in the textbooks (side note: the waveforms in digital circuits aren't the nice pretty square waves you see in the textbooks, either).

Any decent modern DMM should be a true RMS one. In the old days, an "average" AC voltmeter would look at the average voltage of a half cycle (or maybe the rectified full cycle), and scale that based on a true sine wave.

If the waveform wasn't a pure sinusoid, that result would be wrong.

A true RMS meter does the actual RMS integration. Just about any meter not dirt cheap Chinese crap or something now should be true RMS.

But the most expensive bottle of anythign she had ever sold was a huge bottle of Flor de Cana she pointed to behind her ($400.)

627 I've not been keeping up, but double pole, higher amperage AFCIs are a thing now?

AFCIs, like GFCIs, don't like downstream grounded neutrals. That's what that sounds like to me. They are very sensitive to even a high resistance neutral to ground path, or a slight hot to ground leakage.

I suspect that's the problem, not the breaker, although it could be. Only thing is to measure what's going on with the circuit. And to get someone who actually understands what to measure, and what those measurements mean.

Hint: a lot of so-called electricans don't know their asses from a hole in the ground about this stuff.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion (Mzdiz) at November 25, 2021 12:41 AM (Mzdiz)

Sorry, meant to say GFCI-tripping (non-GFCI breaker). The breaker is a SquareD QO240GFI with a 6 mA trip rating. I guess I would not be be surprised if the fan is pulling more than that, and if powered by one hot leg, could cause an imbalance that could trip the GFCI. I'll have to look at the schematic again, but I might just swap the breakers (we have two, one for a wall oven, one for a conventional gas range/electric oven), as a simple data point to check.

I've got a shit-ton of meters. I've got a very good Fluke I picked up off of E-bay many moons ago. Damn this is in the $600 class, and I think I paid in the $300 range for it.

In DC couple mode, the DC voltage is defined as the average voltage. Put any symmetric AC waveform through in DC coupled mode, and you should get zero reading, as that is the average of a true symmetric AC waveform.

But, it has a "AC+DC" mode, DC coupled, that will give you the true RMS voltage of any waveform. In AC couple mode, an DC component is filtered out, and you get the RMS of the AC component only.

I don't use that meter much -- don't want to get it dirty.

Flounder, while it could be the breaker, I doubt that. I think it's a miswire, or a leak. Trust me, many electricians don't understand the principle behind this. I suspect a grounded neutral type deal, or leakage at the appliance.

If I were there, I'd figure it out for you in a few minutes. But alas, I'm not.

I've seen all manner of idiots, especially appliance installer types, who don't understand a 4-wire wiring scheme (separate current carrying neutral vs safety ground).

I suspect that's what it is -- something screwed up with that.

676 >> I will recheck the appliance wiring and the schematic.

Usually, a downstream low enough resistance neutral to ground fault will trip GFCI instantly. They've got a rectified 120Hz "injector" circuit that will detect such a loop and trip instantly.

But if it's high impedance ... I'm remembering once, when I was wiring houses. We had a GFCI circuit. It would trip under the slightest load, but wouldn't trip no-load. Turned out to be a bunch mashed-up wires in a junction box along the circuit.

The neutral wires were mashed up hard against the ground wires. Not a short, but mashed together hard, and the neutral wire insulation was "dented". I think that set up enough of a capacitive couple under load to get enough leakage current to trip the damn thing.

I separated the mashed-up wired, taped the dent, and the problem went away.

These damn things, with 6mA sensitivity, can be tricky sometimes.

I don't think even the Flor de Cana 23-yr is close to $400, not sure which bottle that is - maybe a small-batch commemorative, I think they've done some of those in the past.

Flor de Cana 18-yr may be my next buy. I'm just beginning to explore premium/sipping rums. So far, just The Real McCoy 12-yr and Plantation 20 XO. Pretty good examples of very different styles. McCoy is out of the somewhat fanatical purist camp in Barbados (no additives or sugar), while the Plantation is a blend finished with European aging. The latter is very easy and nice to sip, for my rookie palate, after 10 minutes of air. McCoy is fairly whisky-like, though it grows on me as I sip it.

I plan to get different styles as I build a small shelf of it. Matusalem (Cuban-style, done in DR); Santa Teresa (Latin style, but light, from Venezuela); some more of the sweeter ones (Centenario, Zafra), and even an agricole from Martinique or elsewhere.

Tomorrow the final "course" will probably be an Oliva Serie V Melanio cigar paired with the Plantation.

684 18-1 rum is mostly distilled from molasses, a byproduct of sugar production, so, yes. But the sugar is consumed during fermentation, feeding them yeasts. So the distillate has little sugar, if any. Many producers add some back in.

This has occasioned the sort of vicious, insane division between 2 camps, though it's really the no-sugar camp that's fanatical (whether as consumers, or producers). There's actually a pretty nasty fight going on even now in Barbados over standards for a geographic designation ("Barbados rum" or some such). Pretty much Plantation vs. everyone else, which includes some of the eastern Caribbean, English-style rum heavyweights.

Super-premium cognac is among the very elite and expensive spirits that allows and usually has sugar added in as part of the final process, so those of us who (at this point) enjoy a rum with dosage don't have to feel too dirty.

Rum from French territories/former colonies generally is made from cane juice, not molasses, is called "agricole", and offers different flavor profiles. And a strict AOC set of rules, no additives.

I've got a Fluke 336 true RMS (hall effect, AC/DC) amp-clamp meter. It's got an inrush feature to measure motor (and any other) AC inrush currents. The thing has an algorithm programmed in the circuit that is supposed to give a fairly accurate value for the RMS symmetrical inrush of "typical loads".

It seems to agree with what it should be for most motors. It doesn't give, say, the instantaneous locked-rotor current at the instant of start-up, but is supposed to be good estimate of the RMS start up current, averaged over the first few cycles. Again, according to a "typical" profile.

Well, with a Scopemeter, fuck that typical shit. I could see the actual start-up current waveform.

692 For reference, it does not trip immediately. It does not trip unloaded (just control panel LED) or with oven unplugged. It trips during the warm-up cycle, after a certain temp is reached and the convection fan comes on. If I reset the breaker and continue the preheat, it reaches temperature and runs fine. I need to watch more closely and see if it is at the precise temp that the convection fan comes on. Too many projects, too little time.

Flounder, that's the kind of problem that also makes me tingle in my no-touch place, and the wheels in my little brain are turning. I can't help it.

Here's what I would do, if there wasn't something obvious when I opened up the terminal block on the thing and the junction box.

First thing I'd do is disconnect the safety/equipment ground. Assuming the frame is insulated, isolated from a ground, I'd then see if the tripping problem still occurred. If not, that would mean it was indeed some sort of ground leakage problem.

If it still happened, that would mean some problem with the supply circuit and/or breaker itself. I'd play around with separate hot to neutral loads on the supply circuit (test wiring up something) and see if it trips.

Speaking of motor analyzers, here is an idea: a vibration analyzer for locating and finding the cause of unwanted vibrations in cars and other machinery. Something like a multi-channel digital scope with a large flock of little 3-axis accelerometers that could be stuck to various parts of the machinery with super magnets, or tie wraps, or clamps or glue. Incorporate microphones, too.

Mkae it really, really effective, and sell it as a service. The tech comes out, wires up your rig (wirelessly, of course), and you go for a ride with the tech, so you can say, "now there, that's the noise I'm talking about".

I've got an Extech (Grainger's lower-end brand they used to sell) "wavemeter". Paid a few hundred bucks for it back in the 90s.

A wavemeter is to a scopemeter like a $20 hooker is to a $1000 whore.

The wavemeter has about a 1MHz total bandwidth. It will draw you a pretty picture of a waveform on its screen, provided said waveform is periodic and constant. For example, I can see the very non-sinusoidal waveform of the current input of a computer unfiltered switching power supply.

But you don't capture instantaneous transient waveforms with it, and that bandwidth ain't shit for seeing fancy shit.

Back in the late '80s at Clempson Cow Collidge, I got to play with a fancy Tektronix DSO. These things were new then, and quite expensive.

The model I played with cost over $20K at the time. This was a full bench model. It was just two channels. I want to say 200MHz bandwidth, but I can't remember.

You've got to understand the Southern usage of "mash". We don't press buttons, we mash them.

In that case, IIRC, said junction box where the problem was was had an receptacle in it. When said receptacle was installed, it pressed against the wires behind it, pressing the insulated neutral wires hard up against the ground wires. In our parlance, that's "mashing up".

I don't think I was the one who did the mashing, but it's possible.

732 Thanks again, Publius. I am going to pull the oven again and recheck the plug/cord wiring, terminal block, and make inspections for any obvious signs of shorting, overheated wires. Reviewing some youtube vids and various forum threads, I am also going to check the bake elements for proper resistance and ground isolation, while I am back there. Another piece of info is that the pre-heat seems to take an abnormally long time (outside of the breaker trip/reset), which points to bake element deterioration. I'll also reseat the breaker and inspect to see if it is warmer than it should be during use (I don't believe it is from existing troubleshooting).

I have another 40A circuit in the same panel, 6 feet away for the wall oven/microwave (not yet installed). So my troubleshooting options are pretty well open at this point. I may swap in a non-GFCI breaker (I don't believe code requires it), rather than running it ungrounded, to establish whether the tripping is a ground fault.
