LOL!  Those questions are so incredibly stupid!

About SoCal houses.....many of the ones built (in big ugly developments) in th e' 50s and later don't even have crawl spaces....they're built on cement "platforms" with plumbing and heating embedded in the cement.  I don't know WTF they do if/when something breaks....  Call a guy with a jackhammer?

OMG!  That just reminded me of the  "Jackhammer Jesus" dildo....

I still have a dirty mind......

None of the houses around here have basements, just crawl spaces.  The neighborhood wildlife always manage to destroy the screens and get under the house to give birth and/or fight.  I hope the skunks find somewhere else this year..... *whew!*  The drought isn't helping.

Oh, and migrating ducks (usually mallards) LOVE our pool

My basement used to flood every spring and I had benches built to get everything off the floor. I live downslope of Browns Mountain that water flows underground to form a pond a block farther downslope. The pond filled up every spring and dried up into a mess of dead fish and frogs and smelled terrible. Housing developments started upslope and the underground water was diverted. I no longer have flooded basements every year. The city fixed the pond and it is full of city water all year round. What a lovely change.

Rain, rain, and more rain. I think this is the wettest June in history. My basement sump pump went out, so I woke up to a flooded basement the other morning. Luckily, I have nothing of value on the concrete floor. I used an old pool motor to pump out the water, put in a new sump pump, tinkered around with the placement, and am crossing my fingers. So far, so good. Praying to the sump pump god works!

Have a great week, coffee fans (and others).

Chris, as always, creative solutions that work! Happy holiday. Rest, relax, restore! Your students seem to be very loving; isn't teaching fun!

They do, Randall, but I won't take the risk. Lilies are poisonous to cats and the asparaguslike greens can hurt their gut - I've made some emergency trips to the vet to learn. So the cats get some cat grass or chives to chew on and my elderly neighbour is thrilled to get flowers. Everyone happy!

Your cats like flowers, Chris? Eats them? Sounds like you deserve a vacation. Yahoo!
