    Thinking of getting a truck....

    I miss the convenience of a pickup over the SUV, with a good tarp you can haul anything that fits in the bed. That’s great to hear about that ‘98! Just keep changing that oil and it will last forever. LOL, my bling bling. My wife says I have ‘show-off-syndrome’. Here I am playing with my...

    Thinking of getting a truck....

    I think everyone should own a truck at least once, and here in the Northeast they should always be 4X4. I’m on my third. Here’s my current, ‘02 Explorer. I absolutely love this thing:

    Fading Away Measuring Lines on Chlorine Test Vial

    Another vote for the sample sizer, especially with a speed stir. Consistent sample size and complete mixing equals consistent results.

    What did you do to your pool today?

    Today I peeled back the cover to have a peek at the water. Crystal clear. I’m getting itchy to open, but I know the water is still plenty cold.

    Kitchen Gadgets You Love

    We recently picked up a Cuisinart 1-1/2 Quart Ice Cream Maker. It's amazing how simple it is to make decadent ice cream! So far Butter Pecan & Mint Chocolate Chip are the big favorites, and now we have a Ben & Jerry's recipe book. I've also noticed that most of my pants have shrunk a bit in...

    Da’ Bomb.....

    Even sadder is that these are new blades this past spring. When the snow is dropping at 2-3” per hour and you are only doing 25 MPH, snow builds up at the base of the windshield, which turns to slush from the defroster, which quickly freezes to the wiper blades & windshield when sheeted across...

    Da’ Bomb.....

    They take any available frozen substance, and smear it across your windshield. They perform this best during ‘white out’ conditions.

    I have an '02 XLS with 117K miles and it still rides smooth. It creaks and rattles a bit though LOL.

    We swam again, 80F. I can’t believe how late we’re swimming this year.

    Water Temperature Feel vs Actual

    Water temp is water temp, the pool doesn't know if it was heated by the sun or a heater. I believe that what you are noticing is the difference between the air temp and the water temp. In the springtime, the family is fine with a 78-80F pool, when air temps are in the 70'sF. Come summer when...

    Our neighbors expect an invitation to swim...

    Personally I would rather take my chances with that, over chancing what a 'pool guy' might be adding to the pool.

    BTW- My local Lowe's carries eclipse viewing glasses compliant with the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard for such products, $2 a pair. I just picked up enough for the whole family. We must have looked like dorks out in the driveway staring at the sun "testing" them LOL I forgot to...
