Station Break......

Speaking of peppers, we just picked ours off the plants in the greenhouse. We were giving seeds but the donor had no idea of what makes or models. The small small green ones with a tinge of orange are about a 25 on a 1 to 10 hot scale. Looking forward to a batch of chili.

Now back to your regularly scheduled mutating.

Evenin mutes! I have a ponderance for some more experienced folks. My darling DW's long flowing locks have apparently begun to stop up the drain in the shower. Question is...how can I clean it out soot will drain freely again? Wasn't sure if harsh chemicals were good for the plumbing or not since it is PVC. Any suggestions?

Dennis !!!!!

I hope you have plenty of frosty chilled brews on hand to fight the burn, only problem is when the peppers are that hot, they tend to burn twice, if ya know what I mean

Cheers !!!

Hey Herb,

I use regular household draino on ours, if you are at a full hook up once you rinse out the trap after the draino sits for the 15 or 20 minutes its supposed to sit, rinse with really hot water and save the rest for the next time you need to do it.

Cheers !!!

The endorphin release from chiles rivals that of a brew. Together they are a slice of heaven. As I've gotten older my tongue gets more of a burn than it once did. Guess I need to go into training.

All the best! Keep testing those taste buds on Bacon and you'll soon be back to fighting weight!
There was a time, like when Les was in Phx, that all I could do was yell a whisper. Had to cancel meeting him as it wouldn't be fair to either of us. Thankfully voice and hair came back. Still working on most of the weight.

Go to a dollar store and buy one of these drain hair remover tools. They work well once you get to learn how they work. Push in and start to pull it back out and spin slowly so the barbs catch the hair and pull it back.
Your finger goes through the hole the barbs are at the far end.

They talked and I worked, and then one had the audacity to ask me to do his when I'm done with mine. ( I was thinking when pigs fly, but I didnt say any thing) anyway I worked until I reached the headlight and then began more glue removal, even after looking it up here in iRV2, all it amounts to is a tedious job, but once the last of the glue comes off it sure looks good. So now I am in the process of replenishing my fluids !!!!!!! Cheers !!!!
How about a few pics of before beside after?

I use a piece of clothes hanger cut to about 8" and use a pair of pliers to put a 1/4" bend/hook in the end. Easily pulls out the clumps without use of any chemicals. I use the same method for S&B bathtub as well. Been doing this for about 20 years. Works every time and takes about 15 minutes. Never have to worry about where I put it, there is always another tool in waiting in the closet!
