Tape “On” a circuit breaker?!

Connie asked me if it was okay to tape the handle of the circuit breaker “on” because it kept tripping!  My answer was a definitive “No!”  Now to the reason for those that don’t know or understand why.  The purpose of the tripping circuit breaker isn’t just to aggravate or “tick-off” the homeowner, it is doing what it was designed to do, protect you the homeowner.  If as an example you overload your circuit, develop a “short-circuit” or plug-in a defective appliance and it trips the circuit breaker, than thank the nice circuit breaker for protecting you and leave it off until short and/or overload is properly repaired.  And please have it repaired by a reputable repairman, not someone with a hand-painted sign on the plywood sides of his pickup!  Make sure he is registered, licensed, bonded and insured as an electrician (it will keep your fire insurance in effect if the need should arise).  I know of two instances of homes burning, one partially and one completely to the ground, because of “handyman” that they had trusted and used for years, but come to find out, were never licensed, insured, etc.  End result, the homeowner had to repair/replace their home completely out of their own pocket.  Take nothing for granted, ask to see proof of these contractor’s required items before even talking to them. A properly licensed electrician or any contractor is required to carry these documents with him on any job.  Do this for me and stay safe!

Wedding Anniversary ideas?

Well it’s coming up real soon. On June 1st my better half and I will have been married for thirty-five years! That’s 35 years married! Now the big thing is . . . what are we going to do to celebrate that fact? Don’t have much money to plan with as we currently are also looking to buy a new home for the last five plus months. Should we spend a little and have a night on the town or should we save all the money toward our new home? I know we will need every cent we have, but it is a big event in our lives worthy of celebrating, isn’t it? Any suggestions? Oh, by the way, it’s also my sixty-first birthday.

Liberals using extortion?

Even with a majority of the country saying “No!”, the Demos still passed Obamacare while telling us all, “It’s for the good of the country.”  Now that Arizona passed Arizona SB 1070, which polls show a majority of this country agree with, the Liberals are telling us the law needs to be struck down for the same reason.  Now to make sure Jan Brewer (Arizona’s Governor) who signed it into law, thinks twice about her actions, they have really sunk to a new low.  The protestors are wanting to try some plain ol’ blackmail to justify their actions. 

ESPN: Quote from Governor Jan Brewer-
“By now, sports fans everywhere have heard something about the passage of Senate Bill 1070, a measure I signed into law. It has resulted in protests outside ballparks hosting our Arizona Diamondbacks and has led to calls on Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig to strip the City of Phoenix’s opportunity to host baseball’s Midsummer Classic in July 2011. Urging Major League Baseball to take away next year’s All-Star Game from Phoenix is the wrong play.”

 I guess they believe in the quote credited to Niccolo Machiavelli  that “The ends justify the means.”  If you want to read the Governor’s complete response you can find it here.  Also don’t forget to write mail, email or phone her to show your support using the contacts listed here. Thanks to Robert at AmericanandProud.Net for the link and this picture of a few protestors. Note the sign. 

More taxes, anyone?

For those with age challenged eyes like me, the sign states:

GIVE US FREE
HEALTHCARE
JOBS – NO TAXES
HOUSE
FOOD
YOU OWE US AMERICA!

WE WILL SHOOT
MORE POLICE IN
ARIZONA UNTIL
WE GET FREE!

Would you really like this kind of violent individuals living next door to you? Think about it, then show your support for Governor Jan Brewer by writing your support to her now. Thank you!
