Personally I would use a dry film lubricant. WD-40 also makes a dry film lubricant.

My personal preference is CRC Dry PTFE Lube

With the dry film lubricant you don't have any runny mess down the side of the refrigerator.
Well I did say a small squirt , not one long enough to cause running down the side.

So Tim... if I don't get off the couch and burn some calories I will end up looking like you and Mr Round.

My running is more like a jog with some walk breaks mixed in. Todays 3.5 miles took me 42 minutes, my first trip over the bridge and back was over an hour....

Saw on Dr. Oz that it's not good to hold gas in.
They're both really good, stay quiet until I get up. Then the noise starts

Maybe you could train your chickens to do the same, or play a piano or some other talent

Yeah, if they played the piano then they could play while I sing. Not sure I could get a piano in their coop!

The weather is so beautiful today. 56* and sunny. I really wanna get outdoors and dig in the dirt! But too much to do today.

Those of you who are full timing, do any of you miss gardening when you're on the road so much?

Wayne, I thought WD stood for Water Dispersant, developed by the military. 40?? I dunno, maybe at the 40th attempt. Any way, it certainly fixes squeaks and cleans up electrical contacts. Talking of water and electrics, I read that the UK is suffering from a huge winter storm they call the Beast from the East, with extremely low temperatures and dry powder snow. That, in turn, reminded me of a similar storm in the 80's when most of the electrified railway system was knocked out of action. It seems that the dry powder snow was being sucked into the electrical equipment cases by the vent fans, shorting out the electrics and popping the breakers. British Rail were deeply apologetic for the colossal failure but went on to say euphemistically that the problems had actually been caused by "the wrong kind of snow"! BR took a lot of heat for that comment.

Hey Martin ...

The WD does stand for water displacement and the formula that worked was the 40th attempt to get it to do what it was designed for.

Cheers !!

OK Tim, Mr Walmart Pharmacy man, before I take my pm nap, I have a conundrum for you concerning drug prices.
Re. the cholesterol drug Ezetimibe, Walmart are quoting $64/30 or $364/90. That is six times the cost for three times the quantity. The pharmacist seemed just as puzzled as us. Details: Cigna Part D, in first stage, deductible not yet reached. Any thoughts?

All I've got to say is if you fall for that, be sure to drop back by here!
I'll have some eggs to sell you, Real bargain kicks in on multiple dozen purchase.
