Happy thread


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

My younger daughter who is in her final year of high school just got a negative COVIDSafe test back after having to quarantine within the house for the last week after a few cases at her school that were deemed close contact. She was going to be at home anyway, but I’m very happy for all of us at home and the guys I’ve been working with that she’s all clear 

That’s great!

Hello friends, welcome to the happy thread. I 'm here today to tell you a story and ask you for a big favor.  As many of you know, I was born and raised in Brazil. What you might not kn

I mean, I asked my girlfriend yesterday if she wanted to marry me and gave her a ring and she said yes... so I got that going for me

Our oldest Gdaughter moved into her Dorm @ Villanova Tuesday.
We read all the Villanova paperwork on how they are going to conduct the Fall Semester, sounds like they have everything covered.
A lot of mixed emotions w SWMBO & me right now.

Good luck to her. Its tough but these good sized schools have been loading up on precautions. Will be tough when there is a case though to see how they handle.

From what I understand the Freshman class is approximately 1,600 students w 2 to a dorm room. I think the Augustinian Monks are proactive.

Inspection is such a crap shoot. We had a good inspector who pointed out a lot of things, but totally whiffed on the roof age by about a decade and all the problems that go along with a 22ish-year-old DIY homeowner special roof.

(I say this as there is considerable pounding going on above my head as my roof is being replaced as I type.)

this will be our 3rd house we've bought... first inspector/first house - okay, second (current) house - we should have sued him, third (buying) was fantastic - spent 4 hours going over every inch and let us follow along every step of the way and ask questions. he is an older home specialist and it was great.

thank goodness he found the knob-and-tube wiring and we found an electrician to give us more detail on it...

Knob and tube oh boy have not see that in years. Will the bank allow to buy as is? Typically can’t handle the loads that modern appliances and how many we have in the house put out

partial - there was an addition added and some of the old foundation is still there in the basement... 

house was upgraded pretty thoroughly throughout - has Tesla solar panels that provide electricity to entire home; for some reason they left knob and tube in second floor but that's a pretty easy fix. just open attic and remediate.

yeah... it was more of the insurance on it. they typically don't insure those homes due to the fire risk. we are going to have it replaced w/in first 30 days so it's not an issue.

it's only the upstairs portion of the home and that's just some lights in the rooms.

With old houses, knob and Tube is only the start. There's also lead paint, asbestos in the insulation - if there is any insulation, windows, old boiler, lead/galvanized pipes on and on. Don't ask how I know.

no doubt! thankfully our inspector was very thorough and knew exactly what to look out for and didn't find any issues with that stuff. previous homeowner invested in the property and upgraded things right.  WHEW!

Anyone who asks to do a lead paint inspection on an old house is crazy.  It is there;  just accept it;  same for asbestos.

I lived in 2 houses in CT w Field Stone foundations. When I was a kid my Dad Dug our the basement floor (dirt) had cement poured, got rid of coal and installed an oil furnace.
That foundation was a built like a tank.

Just found out that I’d be heading up my team’s portion of a new project. Three year minimum deal.  That will take me right up to retirement age, 66 1/2.  I’m grateful.  Lots of folks are struggling out there.

For the geeks out there, I’ll be heading up the Governance portion of moving into Azure.  Started looking at videos today.

My third cloud in 4 years.  Who says old farts can’t learn new tricks? 😄
