Default Expensive tools...-}}

Indeed! I'd be very grumpy with no coffee...'-}}

Plumber arrived and it turns out that I had indeed fixed the garbage disposal myself--I had considered cancelling the appointment but wasn't sure that the fix I'd done was ok--and it only cost me $80 to find that out...

The plumber did give me the allen wrench one is supposed to use for this sort of thing (I had used another tool that fit) so I've decided to view it as a very expensive allen wrench and I've placed in my tool box in a reverential way...'-}}

At eighty bucks, I’d make a royal purple velvet pillow for it!

Most people will tell you to keep that tool handy to the disposal. Like taping it to the disposal, keeping it under the sink or in the kitchen junk door. That way is right there when you need it and not in the bottom of the tool box in the garage (and unlabeled so you can not remember which allen wrench to use). Of course most people may not be as organized as you. -grin-

While I knew about the reset button, I had never known that there was a hole at the bottom of the disposal so that using the allen wrench you could free up whatever it is that was the problem.

I discovered this online and I didn't have the right size allen wrench but I found that one of the bits in a set I have for my drill fit properly--used it with a screw driver that takes bits but the allen wrench is better.

The problem was that because of my hearing loss, I wasn't sure if the disposal was working properly--perhaps I wasn't hearing bad things as it ran--so I figured that the plumber would know if the sound was "correct" and he said it was.

LOL!!! The other allen wrench I have is quite small in comparison to the one the plumber gave me and I've put it in the top removable tray in my tool box which resides in the kitchen since I don't have a garage...'-}}

All this talk of rubbish disposal seems slightly alien to me. All the food waste goes on the compost heap or the bird table or into the pony, or if it's bones, onto the bonfire ; and when we get our rescue battery hens*, some will no doubt find its way into their little beaks!

Shouldn't you ask them what they would like to be called?

Not being very bright, all our chickens opted to have the name Henrietta. That meant that if one of them forgot her name she could always ask a friend.
