Nothing To Say and No Urge to Say It

I have a confession to make. I don't know that much about sandpaper and I hope I never learn. Nothing good comes from knowing about sandpaper. Painting and that sort of thing result from getting too close to sandpaper.

I do have a tip though. If you get some 180 grit drywall sand paper, you can use it instead of a pumice stone to remove mineral buildup on porcelain. It's a hundred times easier.

The always curious Dennis wonders what the electrical outlet in the picture I posted yesterday is for. I ran it to the pond to operate the pump.

In other news the City bowling tournament wrapped up today with all in attendance agreeing that I am an embarrassment. there was an emergency meeting of the governing board of our local association to consider a motion to permanently bar me from the local bowling establishments. I hope it passes.

Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

Sandpaper on porcelain? Why does that sound scary to me? Isn't that why Soft Scrub was invented?

(Not that I'm questioning your hardware judgment...)

I once replaced a fender on my 1989 Toyota truck. The new fender came primered, and I took my paint number to Toyota a got a can of my paint. After painting the fender, I found out that you are supposed to polish it with very fine sandpaper (I forget the grit number). After the sanding, it was all shiny and looked like a real paint job! I was surprised.

I prefer to use the 3M sheets of sandpaper (when dry walling, for example) My family members prefer using a small hand held electric sander which they have to fuss with a lot.

Sandpaper was invented by the ancient Chinese. They took a piece of thick parchment paper and glued sand to it--(also glass bits, grit and shell bits)--
