Have to admit I don't often log in, mostly a lurker.

Happy Birthday Ian!
One year closer to that apprenticeship?

I haven't had much time to post, I'm doing a mix of highschool and college this year, and college hasn't started yet, so I've been working most mornings until noon, running to school, and then I have football after school, so I've been reading, but not posting much


ps, happy b-day Ian

Thanks guys.

I get a late present today, in the form of "Rip down a wall in the garage looking for a flying splice in the dryer circuit! Pictures to come!

Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Sorry I haven't been around much, I have been tied up working on my new place and whenever I can I have been up in Parry Sound at the Girlfriends cottage relaxing! Hopefully the cool weather we are now having will bring me indoors and here more often!

Hey Ian: Happy B-day! Did you enjoy your "late day prez"? LOL

Still here, but only just.
Been really busy with work and a few things around the house lately.
Should have a bit of free time from now on, now that I'm ahead of things for once.

Yes, we are all busy & that's a good thing. It's good to see that basically all of us are well.

I usually stop in a few times a week.

The EC I was working with for the last year slowed drastically after the GC we were working for decided he was going to go Ch. 11... with the jobs basically awaiting trim-out. The HO's had paid the GC for the electrical work.. he also shorted his own carpenters. We had 2 jobs nearing completion and two more awaiting startup.

So I'm out $4-6K and my buddy (the EC) is out as well (most likely a much greater sum of cash).

Just been doing small jobs here and there, and submitting pics as I discover them.

I have been working on installing a new garage door. That has been a full time job since Friday. This thing is a big honker. 16' 150 MPH wind code door. I bet it weighs 400 lbs. The reinforcing ribs hit stuff everywhere and the bigger springs displaced my pretty EMT run for the outside lights and some receptacles. I even had to move the garage door opener up and now I figured out it isn't big enough to move the door. frown
