I bought a propane grill the day before yesterday.  It's all stainless, very swank.  I broke it in yesterday with some bratwurst and a T-bone.  Today it was the rest of the brats and some venison sausage and some asparagus.  I think I'm gonna have to think up a few recipes for grilling.  Maybe they'll involve Nazis, or my penis, or choking babies or something, maybe they won't.  Actually I was working on one tonight, but it ended up kind of tasting crappy so I won't post it.  I need some more meat to experiment on.

I called the roto-rooter guy today over to look at my messed up washing machine, and he took one look at it and told me to call the Maytag guy.  He said it was the solenoid and not the tubing.  Which means that I'm gonna try to find a Maytag solenoid somewhere, or just live with it. 

I rearranged my living room switching the TV and couch to opposite sides, which was not easy.  I need to make an ad for this thing to move it outta here for when my new couches eventually come, which is further and further past when that fruitcake at the store said they'd be in. 

I hooked my wire wheel up to my pneumatic die grinder and blasted the rust off of that bracket and then primed it with Krylon's rusty metal formula (POR15 is like 90 bucks a gallon so I passed on it).  But I bought the wrong topcoat, so I gotta switch it out if possible with some glossy junk, and then hope it'll fit back into the frame.

I so want a die grinder but I cant bring myself to get one till I get a better compressor. Mines is a 1HP 13 gallon from 1950. Shit, I have an old Chevy A/C inlet hose for my outflow tube. Hey, its fits. Yah, POR is expensive but you'll never need a gallon. My buddy usually gets tiny cans for 12-15 bux and they last for fucking ever! (tip: keep it in your freezer). Then again, its for a freaking bracket so no foul.

Re: Excellant.
Shit, my compressor is like 1 gallon, tops 2HP I think. I use the grinder for like 10-20 seconds and then wait for 10-20 seconds. Probably wearing that compressor out, but that's what I bought it for really, intermittent use. Die grinder was only like 20 bucks at Home Depot. If the bracket doesn't fit back in I'll just grind it back and maybe use POR so I can just use one coat. Wow, I'm surprised that A/C inlet hose doesn't blow off and around the room like a party balloon!

Re: Excellant.
LOL, I know that feeling! Gawd, I actually tried to use a spray gun with mine and ended up chucking the gun in the trash. Such a pain in the ass. My father in law has a badass 30 gallon 6 HP that I drool over eveytime I go over to his pad. Oh yah, grinders are cheapo, especially at Harbor Freight and what not. Im prolly gonna try my best to abuse it anyway right? Oh man, one coat of POR is all you need, that shit hardens like steel around anything you treat it with. LOL, as far as the hose goes, lets say it doesnt hold much of a charge a couple of days after not using it actively.
