AC goes off in the middle evening and doesnt come back on till morning.

The high in Woodland was 95 yesterday and it was still 82 at 9. We get a breeze that come up the Delta sometimes in the Summer but not yesterday. The North wind was blowing the cool air out to the Pacific.

 I recall being out at the river (*) in the summer many years ago. It "cooled" down to mid 90s overnight. NOT real comfortable

 

* For those non local/native to Southern California (aka SC, not to be confused with the University of California, Berkeley or South Carolina) "the river" is the Colorado River.

Berkeley is UCB. I work at UCD (Davis), which used to be the Farm for UCB. It is now a top Public University. There is a USC, University of Southern California but it is not one of the nine University of California Campuses....http://universityofcalifornia.edu/uc-system/parts-of-uc

 

Here the River is either the Sacramento or American river. On the coast it is the Russian River.

 

Of course some of our Rivers are more like creeks....

Hottest i have ever been was at Bullhead city on the Colorado river.   the only way to get cool was to take your lawn chairs out in the shallows and sit...  Up to your neck....   The Colorado river goes through true desert from Nevada on down to mexico....

Those are the mental illnesses that we hear about on the news.

 

I took a class called Abnormal Psychology. It was one of my favorite classes.

Here is the flock mobbing the kids trying to feed them some corn.

As to the nipple install, the best way is to drill the hole required by the proper tap (stamped on the shank) and then carefully screw the tap in keeping it as perpendicular to the surface as you can and test often as you proceed to check the fit. Once you have the first hole set, use a hose clamp to stop the tap at the correct depth so all holes will be the same. You can do this on buckets or pvc. The trick is to get the correct depth so the nipple firs tightly but doesnt distort the hole (in the case of thin material) or squash the threads. It requires patience but the result is worth it.

Taps are not that expensive and once you have it you can use it over and over on other projects. Even if your drill is imperfect and makes an imperfect hole the tap should correct it with a little finnesse. Properly done you should not need any epoxy.

 I tell people I had a nervous break down back in 2000 .... they say yah right....     I am close to having one now but have to hold it togeher for my sons sake.  But shut down is coming....

 

I was always fascinated byt the thought of Multiple personalities....  but I have dealt with a mom that is very agrophobic at one point she would not drive in a car unless dad was at the wheel.  Because she knew she couldnt yank the wheel out of his hand.  She has improved by huge amounts over the years to good psychiatry and good medications.   though she still uses it to get her way...  I am working still on that one.

 

I can sooo understand why people who have issues they are working out themselves that choose the Psychiatric profession.
