Technically not lame, your post had nothing whatsoever to do with wood
working, neither does mine. Sure your's was about working around the house
and we here have ideas the may help you. But you brought it up in "the shop"
so we listen. I too brought something up in "the shop" I should get the same
respect. So, when your at work and someone brings up a topic not related to
work, you shun them and tell them that this is not the place for that
content. What do you do have a dinner party and talk about the food. Hell no
you talk you have idle chit chat. I thought that this is a group for people
who have something in common, woodworking, we get "together" and share WW
thoughts and ideas and along the lines other topics happen thats why we use
OT, to let others know that this is not about WW but is something we would
like to bring up in "the shop".
Sorry to tick you off but you asked for it
