    Buy them a cat tree and plenty of cheap toys. We've always had cats in the house and never had them tear up anything. That said, before we had one adopted female speyed, she had a litter of 8 kittens that shredded lamp shades, and curtains before we got them weaned and gone.

    Yep, know the feeling! Had a pure white manx that loved to play fetch with hair scrunchies. Also had a son that was allergic to cats, so when Baby the cat passed, we switched to nonshedding dogs. Now have a 12# yorkie, 18# shieu tsu, and a toy poodle.

    My Lista cabinet is now completely empty. All of the endmills, taps/dies, countersinks, milling saws, keyway cutters, and radius cutters are labeled, sorted, and stored in my new wall bins. I also located my Huot drill indexes under the endmill storage.

    I actually bought the Lista for storage from an auction, but it came full of tooling so I'm now finally able to use it for what I originally bought it for

    Those are great cabinets. I had them at one job to store old electrical and electronic parts. JR

    Last night it went down to about 8 degrees F, and with the wood stove going strong the inside temperature downstairs was just over 40F and in the bedroom the baseboard electric heat barely got over 60F. By this morning the bedroom was just under 50F, and downstairs was about 28F. I had left the water running in the kitchen sink at a bit more than a steady drip, and the hot and cold pipes did not freeze.

    However, I went out for a couple hours (by now up to a balmy 16F), and I had forgotten to resume the drip, so when I turned on the taps, there was just a trickle getting past the frozen blockage. A few minutes with a heat gun on the exposed pipes restored normal flow, and I proceeded to build another fire to "warm" up to about 35-40F. I know that the problem is that the heat tapes on the pipes were not installed properly by a contractor who had installed the sink, but I haven't had the ability to tackle the job until recently (after multiple orthopedic surgeries), and I had other priorities last summer and fall.

    So I've been burning a lot of compressed wood fuel blocks, as well as making quite a dent in the woodpile from JUly's removal of a large wild cherry tree and heavy trimming of a huge sycamore next to the house. I split a few easy logs, and then tackled a tough, gnarly chunk, eventually getting it to split ala Lizzie Bordon (40 whacks):





    I also got started on a large round wild cherry log, using a 6-8 pound maul (which probably needs sharpening - machining content...)


    Now that I have a good fire going, and the bedroom up to 60+, I'm attempting to work on some of the images I scanned from slides. Here is a picture I took in April, 1971, of a girl I knew from my early Koinonia days, at Rocks State Park. She was a high school student at St Timothy's private school, and probably jail-bait, as well as out of my league, but it was cool to dream! Anyway, a split shot of the original scanned image with default adjustment, and an attempt to better color balance and sharpen using GIMP. Looking forward to spring!!

    I'm surprised your drain pipe didn't freeze up. Seen it happen.
