We just put a small slit in the cello and that's all, reminded Me to check mine as it's been 5-6 years since I looked at it. I will start putting a date on it.

Was working on an auto's brakes yesterday and one of the hold down springs went ping into the great unknown. I have a couple of magnets mounted on a short board. We went every where within a 30' circle with no joy. Told the Wife I was going into town to buy a replacement kit for $30. Started to go out the front door and here She came in holding the spring. She put the tools in the trunk and slammed the lid and heard something drop on the gravel and found it. We both looked under the car before and did not see it. Thankful.

The almost empty ink cartridge included with a new printer is no urban myth here, buying commercially refilled cartridges is also worthless as 2 of them have been empty, 2 out of 2 for a loss. One store made it right, another did not. Switching to a laser printer when these cartridges are spent.

Our house was all closed up,windows and doors. Walked into a closed bedroom and had a bat with around a 9-10" wing span flapping around. Had to get the Wife as I cannot jump on and off the bed fast enough to have an effective pursuit. How it got in We never have figured out. Have 5 cats now so no repeat.

If You could look at Robin Renzetti's Repeat-0-meter it looks similar. It can have myriad uses.
