    My ear can "tell" when the refrigerator starts its defrost mode (long post only for refrigerator geeks)

    We bought a Whirlpool Gold French door refrigerator when we built our house in 2016. The unit froze up and stopped working twice and we had to have the thermistor (pretty sure that’s what it was called) both times. Same thing just happened again, we decided to replace the unit. Our trusted...

    98 Whirlpool Washer, Fix or Replace?

    The new ones are junk. We bought a new GE washer and dryer when we built our house 6 years ago. Every time I wash a decent sized load of laundry that SOB sounds like it’s going to die when it gets to the spin cycle. By the way, we just had to replace the Whirlpool Gold French door refrigerator...

    toilet flush valves. Korky or Fluidmaster ?

    I installed that exact kit in both of our toilets. They are noisy as hell when they’re filling the tank and they each have mold on the top where they leak. I’ve replaced the valve in both, no change.

    Any fans of Case knives?

    Pretty sure my next purchase is a Mini Copperlock, just having trouble picking the handle. Thinking about the smooth chestnut bone

    Any fans of Case knives?

    They aren’t the most functional knives that’s true. I’ve got a Benchmade and a Kershaw that are certainly easier to use with one hand, not to mention the Swiss Army knives I have. The Case knives “speak to me” with their heritage, workmanship, quality, and attention to detail. I guess it’s sort...

    Any fans of Case knives?

    My father in law gave me the small Texas Jack for Christmas one year, as it was the same knife his father gave him so there’s a bit of sentimental value. I enjoy carrying the Peanut when wearing dressier pants than jeans. I appreciate the quality and workmanship of the two knives that I own. I’m...

    Any fans of Case knives?

    I’ve got a couple of Case pocket knives and have developed an interest in them. I’ve got an amber bone small Texas Jack with chrome vanadium blades and a smooth chestnut bone Peanut with Tru-Sharp stainless blades. I’m considering a Mini Copperlock with Tru-Sharp blades but can’t decide on the...

    Oil recommendations for 2015 Silverado 4.3 10,000 mile OCI

    Given the price that the Chevy dealer wants for an oil change these days, I’m considering taking over the oil change duties of my wife’s Silverado. It’s a low mileage vehicle considering it’s age, 65,xxx on the odometer at the last change. I was considering using Mobil 1 5w-30 and a Motorcraft...

    Wife returned $500 to the bank today

    I returned a chair that was part of a patio furniture set to Sears the day after we purchased the set. The chair made the deck too crowded, so back it went. The cashier, who couldn’t have been more than 18, refunded the entire purchase. I didn’t notice and handed my wife the receipt when I got...
