The first pic is my kitchen light fixture after my wife started preparing the Thanksgiving meal, and I had to find the open, which happen to not be the fuse. A "pie plate" 4" x 1/2 box was covering this splice... the wirenuts and pigtail light are my additions. This was a quick fix so my wife could finish the dinner, and it's still up. So much to do, so little time...

So, Virgil, when you called for the "violation contest" in the other post, you had a pair of loaded dice and a stacked deck in your pocket, eh???
My wife has a never ending list of honeydos. I tried explaining to her that if it's true that "good help's hard to find", then I should be hiding. She told me that my dinner would also be hiding, so I do almost whatever she asks. (a confession: she's got some 12 volt MR16 downlights above the stove, made with 1 pound coffee cans and some 4X3 reducing washers. I haven't submitted them to UL)
