I'm guessing with all this rain in NoVA Tom might actually get some work done - I made some progress on my deck mods yesterday - but today looks like will be a washout.

Yep...that's exactly right, even out here on the western front of VA. Spent the weekend with the Boy Scout Troop at our annual family camp activity. Went to a local rustic camp and spent a good weekend learning/demonstrating scout skills with the boys and their parents. Had a great day on Saturday, but early Sunday morning the rain began. It stopped for about 2 hours around 9ish to allow us to pack up and hold church service, then it started again. It's been raining ever since.

There were quite a few wet parents, but all said that they had fun.

Now...back to the regularly scheduled beratings and progress challenges....

Got back, usually I need to head to the car wash to get the sand and salt off the car. Not this time. Got a free car wash from Annapolis on in.

Blah, Blah, Blah... when did this post turn into the weather channel???

I expected to log on to progress reports not Willard Scott's latest.

It is time for Logan's Carousel ceremony... Movie??? Come on people. I am finishing my entire basement and feel like I am flying past a turtle race (and not Big's jet powered one).

- Painted the entire basement (two coats) including the crazy stair well.

- Ordered the projector.

- Spent a few hours at Lowes planning out the wet bar (nothing fancy, just 5'x5' "L" shaped using normal Kitchen cabinets).

Tried to decide on trim color and I think I may have had a break through. Theatre is two tone gray with black trim but am unsure what color to trim the game room that connects via a 9' opening that will be curtained to divide. I am thinking the game room will all be wood trimed to match the floor.

Planned to get started on my riser but all I did was stare at my drawings.

All this and had to watch the Redwings kick a little Nashville booty for a few hours this afternoon on a low def meager 37" TV....

You call yourself Loganed??? What have you done to make him look bad today??? Step up or bow down...

Man, that took longer than I thought it would...

Or Wednesday when we share secret family recipes! And Thursday the latest beauty trends.

Which leaves Monday Friday, and Saturday to actually talk/work on theater concerns.

Thank God, Tuesday can't get here fast enough because I have a stubborn bar-b-que stain on my favorite shirt.

Until I can get some good advise on the stain, I will update what I got done this weekend. I installted all of my low voltage wiring in the house. Got my security system wiring done, speaker wires to my deck and rec room, network wiring to the bedrooms and to the network router location, thermostat wiring for the tankless hot water heater, and cables for the projector as well as conduit for future proofing.

I can't wait to hear about what Tom got done this weekend.

Reality check.

So Toms starts this thread about not being able to get motivated. In 18 days he has 252 posts.

Compare that to the most viewed construction thread of all time, The Sandman's with over a million views.

In his first 18 days he had a paltry 63 posts.

Conclusion, what we lack in production we make up for in hot air.

I ALMOST replied to all you women yesterday, but you're all doing such fine job of sissify-ing each other that I can only sit back and laugh.

Since this seems to be about me, here's a little story for any/all of other golfers....

There is always ONE shot or one hole that makes you want to keep playing. As bad as I played last week in the par-3 league, Saturday we played a local par-72 course. First one this season, so I was anxious to try out my driver and long irons. Driver and long irons were working pretty good all day. We come to the final par 3 and it's 200 yards, so I'm thinking I'll hit my 5-wood and try to get it to roll up. We're playing from the middle tees. I SKY it. It must have gone 50 yards, straight up. It lands right smack in the middle of the forward tees. Didn't even make the ladies tee. Everyone's laughing. So I hit an 8-iron and reach the green, 50 feet left of the flag. In the meantime, it takes everone else at least 2 to reach the green, too. All three of them 2-putt for bogey.

Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac... It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

I drained the 50-footer for par.

I can't make THIS stuff up.

Then we did the MANLY thing: went back to my house, drank some beer, threw big, thick 16 oz New York Strips on the grill, had baked potatoes, corn on the cob, baked beans, and cheese cake for dessert.

So, it did rain all day Sunday, but I out of pity drove my wife down to Southern MD to see her sister in some sissy recital. HEY! I like my wife, you wanna do something about it?

I'm sorry, did I miss which day is, you know, Progress Report Day here on the Mickey Theater Club (where, apparently if Annette Funicello walked by and had a MAJOR wardrobe malfunciton you guys would just want to know which ladies department to go to, to buy the same cute outfit)?

Still on a long weekend here. In MA we celebrate Patriot's Day. I'm off but the Mrs. has to work, national co. doesn't observe the holiday. So I'm downstairs compounding/mudding. Took a break to check on the updates.

It's strange weekends have been so busy that it seems that most of my work is getting done during the week after work. Inspired, because I gotta finish before the Loganator... Anyways, I did manage to get some corner bead done yesterday and today hope to finish the remaining drywall in the electrical closet. Then it will be time to bust out the king:

I believe that if you are a god, nobody would need tell you, because you are a god. Hence why you answer no to the question if you are a god.. Despite what Dr. Venkman tells you to answer, hehe

Hey Logan, the grandfather clock is fixed and running. Took all but 30 minutes out of my life. I might have to stop procrastinating and do stuff. This way when I am finished I can rest instead of resting first and then having to do things later. <---- what a brilliant concept. Never gonna happen

Lets get scientific about this. Take the procrastination test.

I'm a 32. I bet the Loganizer is well over 50.

Hey, look what I finally got around to. I scored a 56. That's why I have Big over for consultations....he knows me so well.

I thought the advice was rather amusing....

Don't be discouraged by setbacks. Realize that you are human and try again. According to some of you knuckleheads I am a god

Estimate the amount of time you think it will take you to complete a task, then increase that amount by 100%. I ALREADY do that

Visualize how much easier it is to do a job in smaller chunks. If you do it bit by bit, it will be done painlessly before you know it. If the chunks got any smaller I couldn't visualize them with an electron microsope

Announce your goals to family and friends. This will put some pressure on you to actually do what you claim. Post your goals on the fridge, around your workspace... or right here in this thread

Give yourself rewards for jobs completed.Maligning the manhood of each and everyone you is all the reward I need

CRAP!!!!

I thought I was going to pull a fast one on you guys. I had my electric rough-in scheduled for today. I failed.

IF I had known about this, I would have done it in the first place. Everyone of my grounds were crimped wrong. I didn't know the crimp had to be at the end. I figured I was going to cap them in addition to the crimp and the only way to get a cap on there is to move the ferrule back. I was missing one ground screw in a metal box and missing one staple. AND the covers are supposed to be ON on the recessed cans. Otherwise, he was quite happy about the rest of the work.

The one thing he asked about was the "odd" location for an outlet in the bathroom. When I said, "not if you are going to put TV in there," he just smiled. I said, "if it has to come out. I'll take it out." He said, "no, it just has to be on a GFIC."

Now to get it all done should be pretty easy....getting him back here (if past performance is any indicator) could be another couple of months.

So you clowns will have another couple of weeks to get moving.

Yes, I'm Loudoun. I even used the online request system. The problem is getting the time to be here. Although this guy (who said in the three years he's been doing this area, he's never been to my neighborhood), gave me his office number and said to call him first thing in the morning of the inpsection and he'll let me know if he can come here first thing so I don't have to give up a full day. And I want to get it done as soon as I can so he doesn't forget what he saw the first time. He was very accomodating.

So far, I've had nothing but positive experiences with the inspectors here. They've dinged me for things that are wrong. THAT'S why I got the permit...for that second pair of eyes. NO arguments from me. It's been little, easy things to fix.

Now that I know what to do to get throught the re-inspection...I WILL slime you!

slime away. i am not above cheating. while i sit in an airport in philadelphia there is a guy at my house staining my theater. i HATE staining and this one was too big to booger-flick onto my wife. i found a guy who does great work for a very fair price and hired him. besides every time i put poly on it makes me feel like crap (even with a respirator) and i really don't have that many brain cells to spare anymore.

soon, very soon i will take the ultimate chance - i will announce an expected completion date

I figured I was going to cap them in addition to the crimp and the only way to get a cap on there is to move the ferrule back. I was missing one ground screw in a metal box and missing one staple. AND the covers are supposed to be ON on the recessed cans. Otherwise, he was quite happy about the rest of the work.

Bummer (and I truly mean that). Can you post a picture of what was done incorrectly, as well as one done right? I passed my rough in w/o dressing the boxes, but I'll need to do it for the final.

I wouldn't wish a failed inspection on anyone, not even the loganator
