    hey salmonclubber, if you get too itchy you can always drive up north a bit and visit......I don't have the capacity you do, but I'm sure we could have a few cold ones and make some good grub nonetheless [​IMG]

    always welcome at our house!!!!!!
  6. That sucks. Do people not use hot water heater thermostats anymore?
    And what's that? Another American that lives paycheck to paycheck? Looking at all the new houses and SUV's, I thought I was the only one.
    My thermostat never breaks down. It's a couple of vents, a pile of wood, and and a poker.[​IMG]
    Hope you get it back up and running soon.
