Jimmy, I was walking in water on the bathroom floor, not a lot.. just enough to notice.
Turns out the seal (the ring) under the john needed replaced.
Thank the Lord I know a plumber personally from church.
He came right over and fixed it lickety split.. but had to put up with Gretchen wanting to investigate while he was doing it.
Had to put her in her kennel cab.
I think he was kind in what he charged.
$120 total.
That's good, right?

120 bucks is about right.

It's amazing how the darn toilet works fine for years and years, and all of a sudden.... Wipe Out!...

Today, the drainage seals for comodes are much better than the old standard Wax Ring Seal.
The trick... is to be 100% sure, that the tolet sits firmly on the floor flange.
If the toilet rocks just a little, you can rest asure that it will leak somewhat in the future.

I made a classic German dish that my German Dad always made. Country ribs browned until almost burned. Added a jar of good sauerkraut with the liquid and carway seed to taste. No need to add salt because of the sauerkraut. Add freshly ground black pepper. Simmer until the meat falls off the bones. Boil potatoes in the liquid and serve with apple sauce. Then it is whatever green veggie sounds good. I chose broccoli. You did not want to be around us the next day.

I've seen recipes that call for onion and apples with the ribs but Daddy never did it that way.

Ain't going to offend me. I worked on the finish end of everybody's pipes before. Never hurt my appetite either.

Sounds Great Leni

Tina makes it like that with country Style Ribs.
She takes out hers and adds the caraway to mine. I love the flavor, and she doesn't. So right about the saurkraut having enough salt.

I don't have a problem either, as long as nothing gets on my plate.

Sass, $120 is a fair price. Probably has a reasonable service charge, was there an hour or less, and had about $8 in parts (pair of new floor bolts and a wax seal with flange). I charge a minimum $100 for the same job. Includes my service charge.

Yup, only he didn't put a wax seal in, it was something different that is supposed to be new and not leak.
He ran down to Ace Hardware to get it for me because he said it'd be better.
Nice guy is that Brian.

Definetely not tomato soup with the tomatoes, and by the way, Red Pack is a good choice. LOL

I would love to be the bread dunker in that big pot of sauce, but I understand, only the chief cook gets to do that to test the taste.

One added note here (if I May? ) This should go on the Disaster in the kitchen thread,......but guess what?

A friend of mine put a big pot of sauce (Really Big ) on the stove one saturday; his wife peeled the garlic, and helped him roll / fry / and put the meatballs in the sauce to cook. His Mom (Italian ) was coming to visit the next day so he figured mama would love to see her son made such a great sauce.

I've had it before, and it was to knock yer socks off great!

Well, it was saturday, and the pot was on cooking slow on low, so they went outside to rake leaves.
Three hours of intense work and all done; rakes put away; time to go inside and taste the sauce. ErrrrrrrK ErrrrrK ErrrrrrK ..... the house smoke detector goes off.... WTH....????/ ... The bottom of the sauce Burned Crisp Black.
The sauce smelled like rusty chains soaking in kerosene.
He and his wife were playing the Blame Game blaming each other for not stirring the sauce as it cooked.

He tried to salvage the top portion of sauce, but it was too late.
There they were, off to the store to get ground beef and pork, and were up till 1am cooking a new batch of sauce.

For Christmas, I got him a present of one of those metal Heat Diffusers to put under the pot.
I always use one. Especially now that I could be watching tv, and "Bonk"...fall asleep. LOL

Jimmy, I had one pot of sauce go South on me from lack of attention, and once it starts to burn, the whole pot is done. Nothing will get out that nasty taste. Since then I only make sauce when one or both of us will be home to frequently stir the sauce for the 4-6 hours it takes to make sauce the consistency we like...thick with no water leeching out onto the plate. It's a huge commitment, but anyone who has enjoyed slow cooked sauce will tell you, it's worth the time.

Joe, that's exactly the way we make the sauce. Minimum 4 hours.

I don't know if you ever used a Heat Diffuser, but it will lengthen the stirs to 45 to 50 minutes safetly. Even on a smaller pot / batch.

I don't know if you've ever seen one. If not I can find the show and tell to show you. They even work on my high output burners. (Gas).

I've never seen one till Tina bought one maybe 15 years ago. Geepers, where the heck did that time go???

Joe! ... here is the link to the two I picked up lately. Excellent!

The handle comes off to acommodate a larger pot.

The ones with the wooden handle are junk. The handle catches fire too

We use a diffuser here as well. Thing is so old the wooden handle is missing but it does save food from scorching. It wasn't under the macaroni pot the other week.Took me 2 tries to get that pot cleaned up and usable again. I rarely burn things but I always get to clean up the mess!

Here's the 'sghetti. It was gooooooooood! Just turned off the sauce...7 hours and I'm finally happy with the water content.

Looks NOT Watery Joe! ..... Perfect!

there are food varieties that call for a different sauce, and like a sauce with muscles, clams, and scallops for instance, I like a juicy sauce. Not water color, but red and soupy. A good bread soaker. LOL
