Entropy

Relax in southern comfort on the east bank of the Mississippi. You're just around the corner from Beale Street and Sun Records. Watch the ducks, throw back a few and tell us what's on your mind.

Going back to the old trap post...

I often bleach my traps and also run a lot of boiling hot water through them.
Then lots of hot water-heated water.
It takes 2-3 feet/sec flow rate for a pipe to self-clean.
Bleach isn't so great for metal traps but mine are all PVC now.
connecting another dot or two, back when I was suspicious of the contamination being in my feed water, I would try running the hot water at full open until it got really hot.. this would stop the smell for a while and I ASSumed I was killing something in the feed pipes, but if the contamination was living in the trap, all that very hot water would clear it there too...

+1 on boiling water... I occasionally pour a kettle of boiling water down my kitchen drain when it gets slow.

Today's entropy episode involves my smart battery charger... today after returning from my once a week shopping trip that is inadequate to keep my car battery topped off, I connected my smart charger (plugs into the cigarette lighter).With no charging...

I first checked the obvious suspects and charger was getting good 120VAC, next I tried connecting the charger directly to the battery under the hood and that charged normally.

I had already replaced the cigarette lighter power plug once a few months ago.... I was pleasantly surprised to see how easily this cheapo plug adapter came apart, and I found the failed solder connection between the ground wire and spring ground contacts. Repaired and back in place charging through the cigarette lighter plug.

JR
My replacement lighter plug end showed up and I did a test charge after replacement to confirm that it works, all good.

JR
[update- this weeks recharge took less time than last week, perhaps the lower resistance connection, or coincidence. /update]

While not strictly normal wear and tear, this old ceramic statue that I carried around the country for years (after my mother died) got trashed either by wind gusts, or one of my neighbor's cats, knocking it over.

This statue was a fixture in our house when we were kids growing up. You can see where it was glued back together more than once over the years. It used to sit in an alcove near the top of the stairs on our NJ house... My grandmother who was already old at the time, and visiting, got disoriented on a late night potty call. The China man ended up at the bottom of the stair case in pieces.

I researched it and it would be of little value if intact, being busted and glued, makes it worth even less. Already headed for trash pick-ip day.

John you need to bury that in the yard or build it into a wall as a time capsule.
Despite being headless it deserves better treatment than the landfill.

I have pair of my Mom's sandals when she was about 3 or 4.
It still has dirt on the soles from when she walked on the farm in Midlothian Texas 90 years ago.
Had I found them sooner I would have built them into a wall when we remodeled her home.

I don't have any walls or concrete work on the horizon

not really... It holds no sentimental value for besides serving as a reminder of that night back in the 50s when my grandma made a wrong turn during a late night pee call and missed the bathroom. Of course it could have turned out far worse if she fell down the stairs instead of the china man.

I think I have a pair of my old sandals that I need to throw out, they're only 30 years old.

The town slipped on picking up the China man so like a bad penny it is still with me (I may have to bury it to get rid of it). The two old transformers I put out at the same time are gone, but I suspect they were picked up by scavengers for the scrap steel content.

The China Man refuses to leave.
He doesn't want to be buried in the landfill.

Any particular reason why the little guy on his arm can't keep watch over the garden?

That works for me... looks weird but he's been watching my driveway for several days.

[update- Done... it looks a little weird to have a headless china man guarding my raised bed... The only thing growing this time of year is garlic, so they're watching that. /update]
