Who's busy with anything recently? Just a simple thread because I can't think what to post today :P

 

Anyway, I'm not planning anything in the very near future, but will be going up to London at some point in the near future (by the end of 2017). I'm probably going to bring the Compaq Mini with me ^_^

Had a major natural gas leak in my 100 year old house and had to disconnect all of the the gas heaters and cap off every gas outlet and then pressure test the whole system. :(

 

After finding several leaks I decided to have a professional gas plumber come in and do the repairs at a total cost of almost $3000.00 and yes that is a hell of a lot of money but it had to be done.

 

Gas is back on so now I've been cleaning and reconnecting all of my wall mounted and free standing natural gas heaters and also replacing all of the gas stops and gas lines with all brand new. :thumbup2:

 

Thankfully I'm able to do this as the hired out cost would come at $95.00 an hour so yes I have been busy and since I'm 65 years old it takes me twice as long as it would my 35 year old gas plumber.

 

Good thing I'm retired and have the time to do this and thankful it was repairable and no explosions or fires. :thumbsup:

 

I love being a homeowner. :)

I've been working on Christmas gifts! Along with my love of computers, I have a hobby making paper crafts. Yesterday I finished a paper "Star Book" as a gift for a sister. The book is closed with a ribbon, you can open it up and secure it with the ribbon and it looks like a star! It's meant to be a photo album.

I recently saw a large ponytail palm plant at my local garden center (about 4 - 5 feet tall) in their indoor plant department. It was part of their clearance sale (90% off) so I picked it up. I have never seen one that tall at my garden center for years. Couldn't pass up such a good deal!

I will post some pictures of it later.

I'm  just about to begin the final stage of restoration of a grandfather clock from 1978.  The entire wood surface is dry and cracked.  I've lightly smoothed the outer panels with fine steel wool and wipe with a dry cloth.  The next step is best in a 70 degree F and 50% humidity.  Has become too cold to do outside anymore and not willing to attempt inside. I have clear varnish and want to apply three coats. First coat will be smoothed further with more wool and then two nice thin coats to finish.  A wax polish might be called for but I want to see the results first.  It belonged to my grandfather and will give it to my oldest son when finished.  I need to do this before dec 25.

@The-Toolman,

 

I have been doing some renovations, myself.

 

Putting a new shower in ground floor level.

 

With 10 adults in the house over Christmas Week, we will need it.   :gathering:

 

Cheers!
