First-World Problems...

Woe is me! There are two crises that are overwhelming the normally even-tempered and staid denizens of Chez Dildo.

Yeah; that is one of the string of sort-of-Edison-bulbs hanging over the patio. But this one is directly above the grill, and it's dirty! What the hell? It's nine feet off the ground. Will I need supplemental oxygen to get up there and clean it?

And look what I found after pondering the unimaginable complexities of a dirty bulb! Yes, that is a broken hinge. But it is riveted into the frame and the door so it is not easily replaced. It still works, but for how long?

I have to go lie down...the pressures of these existential problems are too much for me.

Don't climb up there. I'd suggest getting* one of these: tinyurl.com/3nkt4abs and either taking down the bulb or lining the inside of the grabber part with a cloth moistened with a solution of trisodium phosphate (to cut the grease from the smoke of the grill).

*or fashioning one by cutting off the bottom of an empty plastic bottle and screwing a pole (e.g., from a push broom) into the threaded end.

111 First you have to apply for a permit from your local authorities and explain how the hinge came to be damaged and if it was your fault. If it's your fault, you will have to pay an extra $100.00 for the "Hinge Repair Permit" and hire a licensed general contractor to remove and replace the whole enclosure the door and broken hinge was part of. EPA and OSHA disposal costs will also have to be paid by you. However, your going to jail for the old rayciss Edison type light bulb so no worries until your jail term is up.

I accomplished a number of small drywall repairs all on one expanse of wall. My surface prep was first rate if I do say so myself. Primed the repairs and through Sherlock Holmes like investigatory work, was able to deduce the exact existing paint color. Sherwin Williams mixed me up a batch post haste.

Came home, and rolled the repaired areas.

After it dried - No Bueno. I told the paint guy the incorrect sheen for the old paint job. You can tell.

The longer I live (I'm 29) the more convinced I become that John Adams was totally correct when he noted that "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." This has become evident in my lifetime during which even the church itself has ceased (in the main, with a few exceptions) to take its own message seriously. How many churches closed for covid; how many have melted away in submission to the latest cultural trend (gay marriage, transgender, etc, etc)?

San Diego has plenty of water. On their own, they built plenty of water storage and also have desalination.

A company has tried for a long time to build a desalination plant in CA. CA coastal commission seems to have put the final nail in the coffin of that project.

CA's water problems can be solved. CA politicians, however, do not want to solve that problem. CA politicians prefer to solve problems that don't exist, with stuff like high speed rail. Rail, I might add, which uses electricity not produced in CA.

I mis-timed some boiled eggs this week and they're way undercooked, disgustingly gelatinous. Egg salad is the only way I can stand them.

316 I've been a veritable fount of productivity lately. I cleaned up a mess from the dining room table, painted approximately 36 sq inches of ceiling that needed a touch-up, sort of fixed a leaky P trap in the downstairs bathroom, and installed a new hose sprayer in the upstairs shower.

322 The only way I'm gonna get anything done around here is to make copious lists that break down each task to about 15 minutes.

The only exception is weeding six or seven hundred feet of garden rows (that's just a rough estimate).

Also, we need rain.

Does this count as a first world problem?

Two of the ones Protestant churchgoers may be aware of "Blessed Assurance" and "What a Friend we have in Jesus. This is a poem about heaven called "Beautiful Land"

326 I'm almost afeer'd to ask: what is the other end of that string of bulbs attached to? Because most strings of bulbs are set up so that you can just un-string them, and clean them or replace some right on the ground, as you will, when necessary. Hope that doesn't spoil it.

332 Poached eggs truly are a first world problem. We need common sense egg poachers. Mine is a single egg poacher that works but is a pain in the ass. At one time I had a four egg poacher that worked great but shit happens and I think it was confiscated by my ex-girlfriend. Nothing has ever come close.

336 Poached eggs. One cup measuring cup with a half cup water in it. Crack one cold egg in it and cover it in the micro. 52 seconds in my micro. Flip it in the water to cook the whites and dump it on a plate with a napkin on it. Perfect for me.

Our service today was ... different.

We had prayers of repentance for the sins of the nation and the sins of the church. We know God forgives sin and restores His people. This was definitely a different mood than in years past -- we have officially faced the fact that things are looking bad.

I'm not saying we've been burying our heads in the sand up until now, but we just hadn't expressed it quite like this before.

342 My bad tire was a broken valve stem. Twas on the drivers side and horse was tied on passenger side when we got there. Tire was worn enough I figured the valve stem had dry rot and the whole tire should be replaced. Its a day use trailer, that was probably the oldest tire, or it is a tie with the tire I had for a spare.

I have 3 decent looking tires. I think I'll just keep the new as the spare and when I need to replace next one I'll just put both shorter fatter tires on the same axle and call that good. Internet says that 225/75 is the closest size tire but 215/90 probably would have been closer on sidewall height. But sticking with the very common 225/75 size will probably allow easiest replacements. If you can drive a car on a donut spare; it shouldn't hurt to tow the trailer an hour with one tire shorter to get home.

343 Jay, use two fuel filters.
One before the fuel pump - between the fuel tank and the pump then
One after the fuel pump - between the pump and the carburetor.

Yeah, I currently have two filters in front of the pump, one of them also a water trap. one after the pump is a good idea, to catch deteriorating pump bits
