Next weekend is the big u-haul push. This weekend was the first 70 degree days. After making the trash disappear, and in the midst of packing no less, a quick rip was had. There's big pharma and big sugar, but then there's big maple. Dandy Loins at Sunnyvale. In other snews, my mom came up to help pack and see the new place. We haven't seen her since last August. Highlights from the DIY escapades last week included disabling and draining a fire sprinkler system. It's just unsightly, in the way, and not original. Now I've got free 240 in the garage. Anyone want to buy a big boy pump or a 500 gallon poly tank? I never knew that many fire sprinkler systems have antifreeze loops, but duh. Now I've got 12 gallons of pink hazardous waste to get rid of. Huzzah!
