 I'll never dig for pool leaks again. It's fixed. But I need repair.

Screws in Tires

 My photo is the single screw pulled from my KIA rear tire (still good). 




My photo shows 14 of the 24 screws in this poor tire (not mine).

Simple Solution

 Problem: My black metal cane (walking stick) put a hole thru its rubber tip (right).

Solution: Before assembly, push a flat metal washer inside the new rubber tip (left).

We fooled the iguanas

Another great idea for Shark Tank. With technology we put 2 cage traps together to create one extended trap to nab invasive iguanas (with long tails). Secret bait - orange segments.

Dill Pickle Kills Cramps


People like me, with Diabetes 2, suffer bedtime cramps  -  at the calves, ankles, arches and toes. We rub, rub, rub – trying to massage the cramps away.  Now, I immediately eat one sliced dill pickle (soaked in sea salt and vinegar}. It’s amazing how rapidly it kills cramps.  Enjoy!

Self check for coronavirus


This info is from my friend.  I'm passing it along. The new NCP coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days; how can one know if he/she is infected. By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lungs are usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late! Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning: Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stuffiness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicating no infection. In critical times, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. SERIOUS EXCELLENT ADVICE by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure their mouth & throat is moist, never DRY. Take a few sips of water every 15 mins. at least. WHY? Even if the virus gets into your mouthdrinking water or other liquids will WASH them down through your esophagus into the stomach. Once there in tummy...your stomach ACID will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly....the virus can enter your windpipes and into the LUNGS. That's very dangerous. Please send and share with family, friends and everyone.

Ford's Garage - Men's Room

 Our Lunch Bunch met at Ford’s Garage, Cape Coral, Florida. Amazing decor is everywhere (even the men’s room).  Photos show urinals shaped as beer kegs – and sinks with tires.  Gals, now you know.

Through the years, I have utilized "Fiverr.com" ...(where helpful assistance would often cost $5.)  Today  most easy gigs start at  $15 and add a $2 service fee.  Still, I'm happy with recent photo shop help from Pakistan.  But, be prepared to see gigs that run demand over $100.  OUCH!

San Carlos Park Mini Storage

A long time ago we paid rent for storage locations to assist our growing business (ventures of development and distribution of various products).  As business grew, we purchased this small mini storage facility for rental income and more space. Today, we use some of the units... and rent out the others. It requires our limited attention...while enjoying Florida weather. Yes, It turned out to be another Great Idea. For rental details call my cell 239-849-3882.

Stepped On A Nail



I have a bad back that welcomes exercise.. The spine often pinches some  nerves that go to my leg and foot. Call it numbness if you like. Sometimes I don't feel the ground, the rungs of a ladder --or  a nail in my foot.
Yup!  I did it again.  A late night walk around our cul-de-sac ...where new homes are built. ..with lots of contractor debris.  My sandals didn't know I stepped on another roofing nail until I got home. Good thing  I keep my pliers handy.

My Golf Lesson


Early in our marriage, I urged my wife to try golfing (I loved it). No, she wasn't interested. It's too hard, too hot, too boring.  Later, she did go - but I had to be quiet (no comments... no instructions).  Well, It took some time before she would golf with others. Then, she liked our social golf groups-and she started playing quite well (without any lessons- and certainly no practice - and no husband help).  By now she has gone through several golf bags, five putters I know of,  and about 3000 golf balls. Sorry, I had to quit golf (bad spine - chronic pain).  But still, she goes golfing at least once a week....with others or alone...using coupons that allow entry to various challenging courses. She has no problem teeing off with the men.  Today she put her "hole in one trophy" on display near our T.V.   Yup, I have to look at it every single damn day. That's my golf lesson.
