A place to rant about things that wind you up ( keep it clean lol)

It could be about the Sandlot boy - there’s a sculpture at the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Boy from poor background plays baseball in the sand, meets new friends, gets talent spotted and ends up famous kind of idea
I just wrote the story. It's based on Shoeless Joe (the book that inspired Field of dreams) but instead of the magic being real, the main character is mentally ill and gets arrested, involuntarily hospitalized and loses his farm.

Thanks!
 
Still nothing about the leaky pipe, apparently because nobody knew where in the house I took the photo. Why they couldn't have asked, so I could tell them it was the bottom of the stairs, 🤷‍♂️

Oh and I dropped my phone in the bathtub. It still works so there's that, the USB port's been disabled though. Sigh. One of those weeks.

Trying to convince the excess water to extract itself from the USB port and headphone jack is not my idea of fun, lol. I don't really care about the headphone jack but that USB port is kinda necessary. Stupid thing.

There's a free app called "Sonic Tone Generator" that's supposed to vibrate water from phone speakers. I don't know if it would work on the USB port though.
 
Woke up this morning and realized I was out of coffee! Trying to decide if I want to take a twenty minute walk and go get an iced coffee.

I haven't been on a walk in a while, so maybe it's a good idea.

Have you tried putting the mobile in a bag of rice to dry it out?
Never tried it, but apparently it's very effective.

I ended up propping it upright so any remaining water could draw itself out and left it for a bit, it's working now. Rice doesn't really help unfortunately, it won't draw excess water out and any water that does escape, your phone (or other device) just ends up sitting in that excess water.
 
I ran out of the B&M hay, my boys love it. Bought them the more expensive one - Excel Timothy. The hay was like yellow straw. Boys didn't like it. One of them even started losing weight.
I drove to another city only to find out B&M ran out of stock of that hay too. Anyway I got green meadow hay. My picky boy was excited when i went to feed them the new hay. He took a whiff, looked me straight in the eyes and went back home. I put some of the excel one and he was a bit more interested. I gave him cc that night as I was worried, cause at that point he had lost 50g. He is usually 1150 something, was down to 1104.
I decided next day to drive to a city even further away hoping that they will have the hay and if not there was a pets at home close by at least.

B&M had some in stock. I bought 5 packs 😆. I would have bought more but the others were yellowish and dusty.

Next day my boy was back to normal weight and have been since. My other boy didn't have trouble with his weight and was ok.

I can't believe how picky my other one is. Thinking about it before he got sick in April I bought a different Timothy hay for him, maybe he wasn't eating enough and I didn't catch that before it got more serious.

My plan is to offer them different hay to find if they like some other brand too, in case something happens with the b&m one and they stop selling.
 
Years ago I fed mostly the B&M hay, it was out of stock so often I stopped buying it and started getting hay on line. With six piggies I get through such a lot of hay it was worth getting hay in bulk. It's a good idea to try out different hays and not feed just one make/type.

I hope you find something that suits your boys. If you are happy to buy your hay online I would recommend Natures Own.
In the back of my mind I remember somewhere that it might be the same company as the one you are buying from B & M! If it’s not they are very similar.

Had to pull that off the wall before it fell off the wall (and would've fallen off in the dark too, there's not enough light overnight for that).
