A new furnace and heat pump. Installers are putting it in as I type. Bye bye window air conditioner!

It's an American Standard, which is apparently built by Trane. In any event, most of these things seem to be either built by one of about three American companies or are imported. Will have to be better than my 1973 Lennox furnace.

Had some rot at the bottom of my basement door frame and didn't feel like replacing the whole damn thing. This stuff worked exceptionally well, as it's one of only very few products that can be applied to vertical surfaces without slippage. Pain in the ass to work with, though; it's like extra, extra sticky peanut butter.

Question: A stainless steel decorative ring around one of my spa jets fell off. Obviously, I can empty the spa to stick it back on but what type of adhesive (glue, tape,..) do I use? A lot of this stuff says "waterproof" but I'm pretty sure that doesn't mean "can stay under water" in most cases.

Re: Last thing you bought...

answer: Any 100% silicone sealer should work for that, eX. A little $5 tube will be more than enough. DAP Kwik Seal or Mono brand kitchen & bath sealant. Just make sure to clean old adhesive and soap scum, etc. off both the inside of the trim ring and the surface around the jet, and maybe give it a wipe down with 91% rubbing alcohol or mineral spirits to degrease before applying the sealant, and let it cure overnight before refilling the spa.

Hadn't thought of silicone, thanks! Since this is just cosmetic, I might wait until I empty/winterize it.

New toilet seat from Home Depot. The old American Standard toilet seat was crap (pun intended). The seat hinge wouldn't stay tightened and the seat kept sliding side-to-side.

When I was cleaning out my dead fridge, I was genuinely surprised at how many jars of pickles that I had in it--there had to have been seven or eight jars. I apparently have more pickle-making friends than I realized.
