    My egg turner had me so mad today because it wasn't turning the eggs. I asked DH to look at it to see what was wrong.

    He came back and told me he fixed it.... wait for it... he plugged it in [​IMG]

    I was so excited about my marans eggs that i overlooked the obvious [​IMG]

    Lol... I thought I was being so careful:) I [​IMG] marans eggs & am so excited about hatching my own. I have a black marans that is in lay and a juvenile cuckoo marans. I would love to have a great hatch rate. I set 20 black marans eggs and 7 cochin yesterday. That is the most chicken eggs I have ever set before, so this is exciting:)

    Lisa: What breeds of chickens do you keep? I was reading your thread about great results with your eggs. I wonder if you would be on our way to Myrtle... or are you closer to GA?

    That's always my first guess. You don't even want to know how many computers I have "fixed" that way! LOL

    Exciting - love those dark eggs!

  8. Hi! We're way over here on the SC/GA line (Aiken) --- not on the route toward MB.
    But maybe we can get together later.

    On a similar note, I once put in a work order at my job and called our IT guy out to try to fix my printer.


    Turns out it was out of paper.

    I will NEVER live that one down. I swear it was broken before, but apparently all of the time I spent trying to fix it....used up all the paper. So I had fixed it on my own but did not realize the paper had run out while I was doing that. Grrrrr.....
