I agree.....better to burn up than rust away! I think Mac would agree with you all.

Sometimes the little things count.

Earlier this week a project delivered in time saved a mind boggling amount of cash for a client, but in terms of pure personal satisfaction solving the puzzle of how to get at and replace the sidelight bulb on my car was this week's crowning moment!!

I've never changed the rings on a jeep like MacsJeep was planning on doing, but when you are a single mum being master of your own car is not only satisfying, but essential. I used my Leatherman multi-tool pliers!!

Way to go Maclover! My Leatherman has saved the day a few times. I have a book, How to keep your Volkswagen Alive, written by John Muir, which states that doing it yourself is the first step to true freedom. I'd sure agree with that, and I think Mac would too! thumbsup.gif

Todays thought is......If it's not working and it's no good broke then what have you got to lose by trying to fix it?

Today's successes - three dead torches, two took a screwdriver and new batteries - easy, the mini-Maglite resisted new batteries - the old ones weren't dead according to my multi-meter, but it was still worth trying a new set, it also resisted a new bulb, in the finish I prised it into as many bits as I could get it into then tweaked all the contacts up and rebuilt it and miraculously it worked.

Tomorrow's task is shopping for new bulbs for that rotten car of mine - out last night and I lost the headlight of the side I fixed the sidelight on the other day - I knew I should have changed it at the same time - it probably objected to the 'jiggling' of the light cluster when I did the sidelight. I came home on the front fogs and one dipped beam instead. The car is very dead-set on blowing headlights, I've done about 8 in five years - the garage says there is nothing they can find wrong and so I just carry on replacing the bulbs - the trouble is I haven't gotten round to replacing the spare headlight from the last one to blow, so I am off shopping tomorrow morning. I think I will buy 4 this time - and replace the spare sidelight one too. I've got it down to a fine art now - I can drop-out the headlight cluster in about 45 seconds, and even do the tricky main bulb install in about 2 minutes now. Mind you the frequency of the job says it's a skill well worth having. LOL

Today's second thought is.....if you live in a house when you can never find the household 'men's' tools when you want to do a job, buy your own and hide them!! Says the woman with a multi-meter, a set of screwdrivers, a huge Halfords pro toolset, electric drill....etc.......you get the idea!!! That way a 10 minute job is......a ten minute job!!

Way to go Maclover! Get a good set of tools and hide them...it's amazing how they tend to wander off.

I just read this on Facebook.

'If you want to bring peace somewhere, don't bring any weapons.'

One person comments on it however that if the Allies didn't came with their weapons to fight for our freedom, Europe would be a different place.

I hadn't thought of that but you're absolutely right! smile.gif

By the way, I can't see some of the images on this thread, maybe because my ancient computer has only got Windows XP, so I was half expecting someone to say "Oh that was posted ages ago!"

Funny line just heard on a teenager's American sitcom that my kids were watching that I rather liked about making the best of a bad job: "Even a kick in the pants is forwards movement" it rather made me smile. Those sorts of TV shows don't often make me laugh, but that one did roller.gif
