jilli, the family room of my paren't house is done in old barn siding. There was a tornado about when my dad was building our house. He passed a barn that was flattened in the storm. Offered to haul away some of the debris, including the siding and a hand-hewn beam that became the mantlepiece of the fire place. And that's my experience with barns. :)

Go the the web site of the Shelburne Museum in Burlington, VT--huge, round, red barn there. I walked in it.

Changing the subject to something nasty, but necessary ... I am having a colonoscopy Wednesday. Have any of you had one? How did you survive two days of clear liquids with something besides broth and jello?

I had a colon prep before one of my abd operations--NOT fun, but I only had to start the afternoon prior.

Yes, first they were going to do one day with Fleet, but changed it to two days with MoviPrep
6:38 am

I have nothing wrong; this is preventive medicine like Katie Couric pleads for.
6:38 am
Scrabbler

Yuck, Merk. But you will get through it, and you want the doc to have a sparkling clean colon to view.
6:39 am
Merk

Ah, yes, with nice pictures, I'm sure.
6:39 am
Scrabbler

I will have my first colonoscopy later this year as I will be 50 in Sept.
6:40 am

ahh just looking for polyps and such merk?
6:40 am

That's when to do it. I've seen too many nasty cancer cases not to go through this. I'm working on my hubby to do likewise.
6:41 am
Merk

I'm just in a semi-foul mood because I was supposed to have painters here today. They have not returned my calls and I was looking forward to tolerating my days by enjoying the view of changing walls.
6:41 am

At 44 words I have hit the wall. Have Babblers said that this is a tough grid?
6:41 am

use ultrapure liquid paraffin. just fill the lamp partway, let the wick sit in the oil a minute, and light. keep the wick pulled down so only a little sticks out of the holder -- the farther it sticks out, the larger the flame and the more smoky

I'm hanging in there. It's hitting me a bit harder than I expected. Walter is having melancholy moments but handling it all right. Saskia (you were right!) isn't looking for her thanks to my letting her see the body, but she does frequently go to SCSI's favorite spots and stand there sighing. But we're pulling on through!

I can sleep at neighbors if I have to, but would really rather not
6:18 pm
dcseain

boiler or furnace, nrkii?
6:18 pm
nrkii

the problem seems to be the exhaust fan motor on the furnace... which is connected to a boiler... which is connected to lovely OLD radiators all over my house
6:19 pm
nrkii

COLD radiators and OLD radiators
6:19 pm
dcseain

ah, okay, that shouldn't be too hard to source, worst case, they replace the fan then?
6:20 pm
nrkii

apparently this fan/motor part is tough to replace
6:20 pm
redturtlehead

nrkii, i'd lend you my 0 degree sleeping bag....it helps a load when no heat.
6:21 pm
dcseain

oh, old then, and a hard shape factor to infill.
6:21 pm
nrkii

the furnace broke down Thursday/Friday, and so far the plumber has been here about 12 hours, I'd guess
6:21 pm
dcseain

do you know the part? I've tons of relatives in pipefitting/hvac, and may be able to help
6:21 pm

red, send it on up, I'd love it!

6:22 pm
dcseain

hi, feather
6:23 pm
nrkii

I'd be slightly less frustrated if the stupid circuit breaker hadn't tripped.... I had to go through my bedrooms upstairs and unplug alarm clocks and such so I won't trip it again in the middle of the night
6:23 pm
nrkii

feels like Apollo 13, when they're trying to get the exact right sequence to turn things on so they don't overload the system
6:23 pm
dcseain

what bother! you'd think they'd have disconnected the shorted part
6:24 pm
dcseain

i'm sure it does, nrkii
6:24 pm
nrkii

though I suppose this is slightly less life-threatening
6:24 pm
dcseain

usually, if it's not horribly cold there.
6:24 pm
nrkii

oh no, it's not the furnace that's the issue with the circuit, it's the space heaters I have plugged in all over the place (LOL)
6:24 pm
dcseain

are you worried about pipes yet?
6:24 pm
dcseain

ah, gotcha, nrkii :)
6:24 pm
featherbee

just try to not set yourself or the house on fire, ok nrk?
6:25 pm
dcseain

yes, what feather said
6:25 pm
nrkii

we have heaters pointed at the danger spots for the pipes, and the taps dripping in the most dangerous spots
6:25 pm
nrkii

plumber says the pipes should hold out
6:25 pm
nrkii

yeah, setting the house on fire is a worry... not sure if I should turn off some of the space heaters tonight...
6:25 pm
dcseain

li4.5 makes me want to go to the local pizza/pasta joint, which is call le4.5's LOL
6:25 pm
dcseain

may that the pipes do hold out.
6:25 pm
nrkii

though these aren't particularly dangerous ones... not propane or anything like that
6:25 pm
kje

I know that place dc - decent pizza
6:26 pm
dcseain

best to warm only where pipes are and where you are sleeping at night
6:26 pm
