During the course of a home inspection, testing the plumbing involves running the water at each fixture for a few minutes and checking for visible leaks which also allows seeing leaks when you go into crawlspace or basement towards the end of inspection.  Of course, just running the water won't a...

  Remember this tune by Lionel Richie? Or how about the line ..."Now if you excuse me while I kiss kick the sky" If you're not familiar with this line, its taken from the song "Purple Haze" , which is often cited as one of Jimi Hendrix's greatest songs.  These two songs were runnin' through my he...

Finally made it!  I set a goal to hit the big 10 thousand by 2009.  I figured I would use this post to earn some more points(it seems that everyone else does!) and, of course, to gloat a bit.
