    Floodlights with no wall switch

    When our house was built, one corner flood light, has no wall switch. It is hot all the time( yes i've checked every switch).

    Caliper paint on cast iron

    I have an outdoor cast iron fireplace. I changed the color from black to red. I used rust-oleum caliper paint as it's high temperature. Question, should I cover it for winter, or does the paint need heat now to bond? Pics below.

    Fiskars 8lb maul.

    Thought I would try a newer maul. It really does absorb shock. It splits really well. Dry cherry in one whack. Hickory took a bit more. Being a wider head , it's not quite as accurate at hitting the same mark , I might not be used to it yet. But I really like it.
