We solved that problem, we have an indoor pool.

We have solved that problem, we use the neighbor's pools.

Buy a pill cutter, found at drugstores, etc. They go for $10, or less.

Cut it, mash it, spread it into two lines and only snort one. Do I have to think of everything around here?

Add in "...off a hooker's tits..." and you can move this to the Small Pleasures thread.

If you are using a sand filter, you might want to check the level, that much back-flow can also take a bunch out.

At least you were able to identify the issue/bad part in time. My electric range refuses to preheat at any temperature lower than 400°. I've replaced the baking element, the temperature probe, and nothing. Still non-functional. My next move is the whole damn control board, but the part isn't even available anywhere and has to be "special ordered" per several appliance repair sites. So no matter what, I won't be able to have my annual pre-Thanksgiving bird this year

I've never had these issues in the older models(this one is 7 years old as well).

I was just on their site. Did you just call to haggle the price? I've found the part for $40 less than they are advertising, so is it more of a price match deal? Also, they state it is a "special order" and will take between 2-3 weeks to obtain. Thank you for the heads up at any rate.

KC gave me a website link. They had the part but I was afraid it wouldn't ship fast enough. A local appliance guy told me where the part was locally. I called and they have plenty. Same price. In Charleston.

100 miles round trip. Gotta have it.

Context is everything. Up here we wouldn't think twice about a 100 mile round trip. I've done over 200 numerous times without flinching.
