      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

       Harry !!
            Good to hear from you, glad your doing better, and at home.
             I got my disability the first time around, as they said above have all of your documents in order, all your T's crossed and your I's dotted.
             Also watch the questions on their forms, a lot of the times the questions will be asked 2 or 3 times in a different way just to see if you give the same answer. Than they send you more forms with the same BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH questions asked in still a different way.
              My Mother in law (belive it or not) gave me a good piece of advice when I was doing mine. Any forms you fill out, be sure you make a copy for you self. That sure helped me when they kept sending all of there different forms.
               Hang in there Harry, the White Sox start spring training next month and in less than 3 months the season starts. No better to relax when your pretty homebound, than to sit back and watch a ballgame.
                                                   Take it easy Harry-------Prayers are with you

                                                               C. B. Savage by Ron Hart
                                            And several by Dave Dudley one of if not the best singer of truck songs.
                                                               Girl on the Billboard
                                                                  Me and Ol' C.B.

                                                           There Ain't No Easy Load
                                          And one of his last songs, this came right after 9/11

                       This song is for everybody but anybody that has ever driven a truck will really understand it

    Scott:
    Heres a suggestion for you, go to a Home Depot and or a Lowes or even a Menards store or really any store that sells Plexi- glass. Go to the Plexi-Glass section and look at the glues there. There probley will be a couple three different glues there. Read the labels on all and decide which one would best suit your needs, or the easiest on for you to use.
    When I built my trailer, I used the tube glue that they offer, worked just great, dries crystal clear and it has all the stickum that you need. In fact I have built several different things using that pertickler glue. If you use it for anything thats not really clear, be sure to test it on a piece of scrap first.

    Hope this helps

    The smell of the wife baking fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies.

  7. Cornpatch added a post in a topic Can a dead garage door opener be fixed?   

    That new board probley didn't work and Harry just doesn't want to tell us that his garage door opener has gone to the garage door opener beyond.

    Hey Harry take a break and go on down to the Sox game tonight, and than tomorrow you can tell ua that your going to get a new opener.

    We'll all understard, I think.

    That's seems appropriate the Cubs and dog poop in the same sentence. At least you can clean up the dog poop in the spring. But nobody has been able to do anything for the Cubs in years.

    As Harry would probley say GO WHITE SOX but they didn't look all that good last year either.

    Looks like Danno's been sent to his room one time to many. To much time to sleep and have these weird nightmares.

    Maybe he needs more time in the sandbox, with the sane people on this forum.

    I keep a camera in the wife's car, that way when we're out, if I see something that I like, I take several pictures of it. When I get home I put the pictures in the computer, print them out and put them in a ring binder and when I am ready to start a new project, I go thru the pictures and see if there is anything that could or will be used on the project.

    Both of my sons also use these pictures before they start new projects. I just wish that they would return the binders, so I wouldn't have to track them down when I am ready to use them.
