    Long weekend

    I know it's not electrical related, but it could be.

    So any plans for the long weekend, or do you even get a long weekend?

    We've got the house up for sale so we've been busting our humps trying to get it ready to sell. I think we may actually be able to just sit back and relax this weekend after weeks of working on it night and weekends. I may start working on the arbor that I'm building for my daughters wedding in July.

    I get every other Friday off so this is a nice 4 day weekend for me.
    I can build anything you want if you draw a picture of it on the back of a big enough check.

    There's no substitute for hard work....but that doesn't mean I'm going to give up trying to find one.

    I can think of an electrical connection.

    As we reflect upon the warriors who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, we could also give a note to those who died working our profession, for they are the reason that we now have safety rules that protect us.

    I was once told that for every code section and OSHA rule, in the days of old, someone probably died to get it enacted and enforced. Their deaths helped/are helping us from unnecessary danger.

    Not great writing or reasoning, but it was the best I could do.

    It's the thought that counts.

    i think jumpers attempt to link this to electrical was better than mine
    Hard work never hurt anyone....but why risk it

    Menu for the Memorial Day BBQ is being planned. So far it includes very large chunks of meat smoked the night before, hot dogs for the kids, coleslaw, macaroni salad, potato salad, tossed salad, fruit salad, crab salad, pasta salad, watermelon, and rhubarb crisp with ice cream.

    Keeping it electrical- I'm thinking about having a house wide Spot the Violations scavenger hunt.
