Ah coffee, I don't drink the stuff.

Though today saw this online

https://sotooutdoors.com/product/helix-coffee-maker/

Looked a nice compact design for carrying about, even just for initial filtering of water.

I love improvising + I don't like to throw anything. Either I give it to charity's recycling projects, or utilize it in my own projects, or .. very reluctantly.. t-h-r-o-w it away with a tear on my cheek. LOL.

One of my favourite projects is home-made and self designed power extensions. I used cords of broken appliances (the ones with highest amperage) and bits and pieces from here and there.

Yes, extension cords are available in the market, but I need specific types of plugs and outlets

not today, but end of last year had an old camphor tree and tall palm removed... the palm was within 5' of the house, and the camphor a non native species, so no permitting problems... will use up the stored gasoline, and rotate the water first of next month... I still use a couple of D cells for the MagLight LEDs and need to get a pack at Sams... I stocked up on a couple of flats of corned beef hash, vienna sausages,and chunky soups at the beginning of COVID, so the pantry is in pretty good shape

I have a filled propane bottle that has a bad valve... need to replace it as I like to have two filled spares

new tires and battery on the Tacoma, so it is in pretty good shape

regards

Well, last week was Emergency Preparedness Week in Canada. I "was" going to check the anode rod in the water heater. Turns out I did not have to. The water heater cracked and sprung a leak in the middle of the night. Luckily, the water heater is right next to the floor drain so clean up was minimal.

After my cold morning shower, I called up the plumber and he arrived a few hours later with my brand new water heater. During installation he had to solder a couple of pipes. Solder? Heat? Smoke? Smoke detector 5 feet away. It doesn't take much to figure out what happened. On the upside, all 3 of my interconnected detectors work exactly like they are supposed to! smile

And I now have a fixed reminder date for checking the anode on a yearly basis!
