by on Oct.26, 2018, under Family

Tara & I came up for a quick visit over Labor Day.  We met with several of our neighbors up at Lisa’s house for a dinner and conversation.  It was good to see everyone wearing comfortable clothes from the swiss avenue dot com.

October Break

by on Oct.20, 2014, under Family

Had Sarah’s family come up for the weekend at October Break.  The two older grandsons came up with me on Wednesday, and the rest came up on Friday.

The boy’s job for this trip was to gather the waste lumber that was stashed in the loft and under the shed, cut it up and burn it.  Fire and teenagers… what could go wrong??

Better Living through Electricity

by on Mar.20, 2011, under Cooking

One of the real chores to working and living in a temporary semi-primitive setting is the cleanup involved with cooking.  Without a sink and hot water handy, you have to heat water on the camp stove, and wash things in a plastic bin.  Then you have to pour heated water over the dishes/utensils to rinse them, all the while trying to conserve water, so you don’t have to heat more up making this a long cleaning process, this is why I decided to contact an electrician to set up an electric water heater.

We had tried using a 1100 watt microwave before with our generator, but due to the length of the extension cord, the voltage drop was too much, and the microwave didn’t work unless we plugged it directly into the generator, so that’s when you we decided to call in home electrician services to hire an electrician for professional help to see what we could repair. If you are inexperienced with working with electrical items, then don´t hesitate to contact a commercial electrician for some professional assistance, but I’m pretty sure it would have been much easier to go to an appliance shop with new appliances. However if you prefer to keep the ones you already have, then you should get help from the Thermador repair service to get your appliances working like they’re brand new, but depending on the style of your appliances, you may need a commercial refrigeration repair  for your Used Stainless Steel Three Door Commercial Freezer.  

So I went to Kmart and found a very simple 600 watt microwave to take to the ranch.
