Thx! It's still covered in snow in honor of my friends in Michigan and Chicago, sign1 Hope you guys aren't getting this cold rain we have - it's about 40 here and raining now. We went out to eat, but my wife is trying to talk me into hiring a plumber to redo the faucet, because I'm allergic to mold. I think this is a pretty small job, though. I'm just going to cut off the pipes just below the crappy little shutoffs they installed, then pre-build new shutoffs (metal ball type) with threaded ends for supply lines. They put in that bendable supply line with compression fittings and so it's not really user friendly at this point. If I do it right, there will only be one solder job for each pipe under the sink, which is generally the hard part. Jeffrey, they released all the Banaceks on dvd. I found one set at Best Buy on sale and had a coupon, so I think it cost about $11 after all that. The second set cost about $24 online, but now we have the whole series. I think Thomas is pining for a friend - maybe Percy? Have to wait until the financial fallout from the sink and all my recent tmcc purchases first though!
