If I'm reporting a FB ad as a scam

 Why would FB think I wanted more information on that solar company?
Or the Shysters wanting me to sue a plant killer?
Or the scam artists who want me to sue someone because of the water at Camp LeJune?

 I don't know what's going on with Blogger.
Maybe this site is being targeted, but about 15% of my bloglist is unreachable and I can't access the layout page to check on -or redo links..
The blogs that show no updates go right to my downloads in my computer if you click on them.
Big County
Weazle Zipper
PwaPaws House
Mac Thag
Nobody Asked Me
Non Original Rants
Daily Timewaster
Come and Make It

I'm even having trouble betting to my blog.
BUT the Rule 5-izm must go on...

Something wierd happened yesterday

 And I'm still trying to figure out. 

 I'm in the process of putting in a new panel box- with a new meter to replace the 75 year old panel box that was feeding a mixture of knob and tube wireing and ancient fabric Romex.

 It's basically a completely separate circuit except where it gets fed from the transformer. I ran a new line to the 220V well pump and put in the double pole breaker -It's a GE instead of the Square D the other one is- I accidentally put that breaker on the same phase (GE is different than Square D) and came in the house. 

 The kitchen lights and everything on that circuit didn't work- until they wanted to. I KNOW I didn't touch that breaker, and everything looks good. 

Then the wife said we didn't have water-- which is when I found out about not having the pump on two different phases. I moved it and now EVERYTHING works like it's supposed to.

 HOW did sending two of the same phase to my well pump affect one circuit on a completely different panel box- with different feed (old one is #4 triplex overhead) into it?

I saw gas under $3.00 in two cities

 San Antonio and Austin.

Which means that maybe by Nov. 8 gas (not diesel) will be somewhere around where it was when 0biden took office.

Then after Nov. 8, gas will be free to go up as much as it wants because the election is done and the SFR will be almost empty.

Picture this...

You reupped for PWD Rota, Spain in the mid 80's.
Herman's (The German) Schnitzel haus right on the playa.
Bennies bar, Zepplins the Sangria Shack....

You're living on the economy and Shorties(best fried rice I've had at 3AM and breakfast on leftovers at 0500) is about two blocks from your place.... 

Dependents (wives, chicks), female sailors and expats all have the run of the base... 

 Gawd, I loved Rota.

I'm sure you Army guys and AF have some base like this....
