  2. Thank you Dena! Seeing two friends in that video sure brought back lots of memories. John
  3. If you are in a seashore town and have natural gas, in the event of possible flooding, the gas company will turn off delivery. Our town just installed a generator for the town hall and even though natural gas is available, they opted for propane. John

  9. Yes you can. It looks like you'll have an unsightly meeting with the cork grip, but with care, some cork dust and that same epoxy, you can make it look presentable. John
  10. Seadogface: Thank you. That's one critter I never want to meet. John
  11. I've got to ask. What the heck is that thing that Chumfish posted a picture of on the first page of this thread? John
  12. I live in Cape May and had an osprey drop a live bunker in my front yard. I heard it hit and when I looked out the window, I saw it flopping on the grass. Glad I wasn't cutting the grass. John

  14. I had a part time job back in the early seventies working the deli counter at a chain grocery store. The fish counter was part of the deli. I worked Friday and Saturday evening. Every Saturday, a guy would come in and buy 3 or 4 whole fish. He didn't want them cleaned. He asked me where fish like what he bought came from. I'd tell him some part of Chesapeake Bay where they could be found. He'd be happy with that. John
  15. Hello guys: I need some advice on spindle and knob sets. We have glass knobs on all of our interior doors. The knobs are supposed to be held on by a single set screw. The spindle is square with threads cut on the four corners. The knob screws on and then the set screw is supposed to be tightened to one of the four flats. The knobs are constantly coming loose and I cannot tighten them. Now, there are a few of the spindles with stripped threads. I've tried using plumbers tape, and it helped for a short while, but it's not a permanent solution. Any ideas? Thanks, John
