    Since our son moved back home and the cat got used to him, she often sleeps on his bed.... which he's fine with, until she decides to get up, and walks right across his body. :giggle:

    It always snows on the mountain peaks - especially on the Big Island

    And on a totally domestic note.

    KrudKutter is the best cleaner for bathtubs and such that I have ever seen.

    Had recently run thru several supposedly great cleaners on my fiberglass tub/shower. worked my ass off with little result.
    Krudcutter and a Mr Clean Magic eraser (was handy any sponge will work fine) did a great job with 1/0th the effort.

    The textured floor I had not been able to get fully clean for years even using a brush and such.
    It now looks like new as well.
    Tub looks new again! :bliss::stars::stars2::hearts::confetti:

    Do run the exhaust fan cuase the fumes are a bit much.
    Might have been using the Mr clean sponge with it? I dunno.

    Vaping was involved in this project :)

    Whats an ECF refugee? I've seen a few people with this banner but I have no idea what it means. My guess is an E-cig forum refugee?

    I'm still really bummed about the holidays in general; all the TV commercials are all about family family family and I just want to SCREAM "Bring back my mother!" No, I didn't really like being around her, but she definitely knew how to put on christmas. :( But we're not boycotting the holidays this year; somehow I'll muddle thru.

    I do not boycott Christmas just do not embrace it any more.
    A nice midwinter festival for those who enjoy it.

    Have always treated it like a festival - never did as an adult ever treat it like a religious event

    I still like it but like it because I do it my way, no one else's

    Christmas is NOT a Religious event in the USA.
    It is a commercial event.

    Some good food usually happens though :D

    I did heroin last year on christmas,thanksgiving,my birthday so I'd say those days for me are just going to make me think of how I got high exactly a year ago from that day within a day or 2 I dont do anything for christmas no presents the last 2 years but honestly its not a big deal to me I prefer it to be that way I'm not a kid anymore living in a fantasy land where i think that some guy really stuffs his fat ass down the chimney to my furnace and brings me presents lol

    My first xmas sober, I cried my eyes out for a while... then I realized that was stupid, I was just *making myself* miserable. It's never been that bad again... 25 yrs sober now. :) The good part is that that's at least 24 more yrs of life than I would have had if I hadn't gotten sober, and my son still has a mom. :)

    That's one of the bottom-line truisms in 12 step groups: if you want to change the game, you HAVE TO change the players.

    yeah thats good :) im trying to channel my addictive mindset and energy into vaping, buying liquids, building, gathering information on building, learning about wires and what makes certain ohm builds, eventually learning the alien coil build, getting information on making DIY liquid which i think about vaping more now than i do getting high lol

    Good move and other hobbies might be good as well.

    Having varied interests and hobbies is valuable in many situations.
    Such as retirement.
    A person that has no hobbies and such will start dying when they retire....
    If work was such a large part of their life and it is gone now....

    I have no such issues.

    Finished getting the power chair carrier all mounted up and checked out.
    Power chair is loaded and has cover on it for an excursion for the wife unit tomorrow.

    Put my little Toyota beater truck in the shop to redo the rear brakes and other things on it.

    Started running wiring for relocating the laundry area....

    wife unit bought a little Dyson $300 vacuum thingy. Runs maybe 20 min on a charge and takes 3.5 hours to charge...

    Man, I hate xmas for an altogether different reason. One of my personal pet peeves in life is the feeling of being left out of anything -- and at xmas, my husband and son take off on mysterious expeditions as they currently are on, and leave me sitting here wondering where the hell they are, and where is that pizza they said they were getting? o_O

    Heh, actually they were off buying a refurb xbox 360 for my son because his old one completely died today, and he's as attached to that thing as I am to the internet. :giggle: He's got finals, 2 days next week, and then he's off for xmas/new year till the new semester starts in 2018, so he wants something to do. I told him if i won that PS4 for him tonight, he'd feel pretty stupid. :giggle:

    From the outside I thought it was an old Cyclone - but I popped the cap off of it today and the airflow and high posts reminded me of the achilles

    That airflow hole in the cap and through the bottom of the base is teentsy

    What is it? The Achilles only has 2 posts; the thing in the middle is the airflow stack. And the Achilles fastens completely with threads, both the tank ring and the cap on it, backed up with o-rings to prevent leaks.

    Can't see the deck, to know about the interior airflow, which is crucial.

    you can see the air holes on the deck, must connect to the air holes on the side, one is where my dirty thumbnail is, the other directly across from that,

    The air holes on the deck are slightly raised

    Wow, no well at all... and it wouldn't be squonkable with the airholes flush on the bottom like that. With airholes that small, seems like a dual build would be pretty hot.

    There is a small well - and no one says you have to do a dual build just because it can, lol

    Seriously? That Achilles is the #1 best flavor atty EVER, in the history of vaping, PERIOD. You're right, I don't give a single solitary SHIT about clouds, I want flavor, at 9.5 watts and 1.85 ohms (today's build anyway... it varies between 1.6 and 2 ohms), and as little "cloud" as I can get away with and still feel like I'm vaping -- which is why I use 25% flavor, and still use a smidge of Flash, because 3mg nic doesn't give a lot of TH.

    Step up my game indeed. That Achilles IS the game.

    True, I always do a single coil on the Magma. Since I inserted the 13ga needles in those airholes, I need to crimp the off-side one, to tighten up that draw still more. That one I modded for squonking, it seemed to make it airier; I didn't remember it being quite that airy a draw when it was just a "regular" RDA.
