    Me to. A word of advice. If somebody asks you if you want to fall 20 ft to the ground don't take them up on the offer, the falling part isn't what hurts, it's the landing.

    I think the wafer is ok. With the different placements of the fans I'm finding that the stat needs to be set higher than it usually was. So I'm adjusting slowly fearing a major spike. Also not sure the old heating element is capable of getting warm enough. Might be doing some remodeling tonight

    Good morning Chaos. If after falling 20' the only thing that hurt is your shoulder you are doing really well. Did you see a doc?

    My pride was hurt, it scared the bejeepers outta me and a few chose words might have escaped my mouth. I saw a chiro after hunting season ended because I wanted to be able to keep hunting.

    I'd be happy to donate some hatching eggs from my Silkies and Sizzles. The only problem is, I don't know how well they'll be laying when the contest ends. Better worded, I don't know if they'll all be broody or not when the contest ends. I've had 6 of them go broody already this year :th Four are back to laying and two are still sitting on eggs. Three more are spending more time in the nest boxes then I'd like, and they're walking around all "clucky", so.... :/

    Sounds like this happened awhile ago. I assist the safety manager of a large framing/ construction company falls of any size are treated with kid gloves. Be careful
