Really?!?!? They have to finish up the regular season.  I wonder how many games they play.  I wonder what the playoffs would look like. 

This is a good read

Yeah something like they are picking an arena per division where games would be played this summer - not sure what that means for regular season vs playoffs. Lots of rumors floating around so who knows but I’d love hockey playoffs this summer!

Yeah... but we wait 2 months still for hockey per the article and quote below.  Plus if they do the regional arenas that they discuss, we (all of the Metro division) would likely be playing the rest of the regular season games on the Hurricanes home ice... and I would guess that we would stay there for playoff hockey as well

Quote

Of course nothing can happen until health officials give the go ahead. If the season is resumed its unlikely to happen in June, it maybe July at the earliest. And if it does happen it would likely be done in empty arenas or with limited fans in the stands, according to the report.

The famous Andino walkoff to end the redsox season in 2011. Also this game was the start of the orioles relevance. They had a five year stretch from 2012 - 2016 with the best record in the AL.

This pic puts a smile on my face but also makes me sad that Hardy,Jones,weiters are all gone.

Totally unrelated to anything, but if anyone likes crispy beef and is ever in the Pikesville area, Jumbo Seafood on Sudbrook Rd has the best crispy beef and string beans ever. It’s like vegetables and candy. So darn good!

eta: I also got a real fortune last night and not some dumb proverb, but I don’t know if it’s good or bad.

Took the power washer out since this seems like a good weather day to do that and the engine seized up:wacko:

 

So, a few youtube videos and a Walmart online order and I'll be in business again in another 10 days.  

I've seen a few times that if not all the water is discharged before winter storage on a std gas powered pw( kept outside in a shed for ex) the water can freeze and expand and crack the block :yikes:. Ofcouse this past non winter this wouldn't be as common around here lol.

We keep ours in the garage.  I took the spark plug out and now the pull cord can turn the engine a bit.  I'll swap out the spark plug, spray in some PB blaster, and change the oil and that should make it good as new per YouTube.

I’ve been waiting for a two day stretch of sunny warmish weather to power wash the deck. Hubby hates doing it, but I love it.

Every spring I get a couple service calls from power washing amateurs :whistle:that power spray outdoor receptacles...filling the entire box up with water lol and shortout the gfi outlet . To achieve this one would have to aim the power washer wand right at the outlet for like 30 seconds lol. Its dumb but like I said ...its every spring I get these calls . 

 

 

 

Not that anyone here would do such a thing :)

Lunch.

I am no gourmet chef, but I can hard boil an egg to perfection, and season up some avocado. Best damn avocado I have had in a while- super creamy and flavorful. This was simple, and freaking good.

Girlfriend made me an egg white pizza infused with spinach and a sriracha drizzle (I name her food for her to make it sound more gourmet:lol:

That is the dumbest thing ever to do. First off like oil and water, water and 15amps don’t mix. 
 

secondly, why does anyone need to make a receptacle shiny?
