Seems to me you need a better smoke detector.

But let's talk carbon monoxide alarm, automatic water valve shutoff, roof leak detector and of course intruder alarms. Generally not required by code but very useful.

I did have a neighbor manage to set off my CO alarm! Probably saved his life. (Idling a diesel car)

There was a chain here that sold blender drinks, called Orange Julius. As an early teen, I would try and get the right blend of ingredients to copy what they served in the stores.

After many years, I stumbled upon the missing ingredient I could never quite figure out.
Having not attempted to make the concoction for over thirty some years at least, I was fooling around in the kitchen one day. The confectioners sugar and vanilla that was in some Slim Fast powdered drink mix seemed to be convenient, so I used it and was very surprised that it had something else that Id been missing.
As far as I could tell, it was the buttermilk powder included that completed the formula.

Do you remember when Orange Julius offered a raw egg in the drink? How about when orange was the only flavour?

CO detectors are, to each his own on the rest.

How long ago was this? Diesels in the last 25 years have had pretty low CO emissions. Other cr*p by the bucket load mind.


I have 3 CO detectors, 2 smoke detectors and only one exit to the property. This does concern me, esp with an open fire downstairs...

In most places windows count if they are a certain distance off the floor and size, the drop does not matter.

yeah. but the windows are small. I can squeeze the kids out and drop them on the lawn, but no way I could get out*. Maybe time to put a 7lb lump hammer in the bedroom so I can knock the whole unit out.



*I have tried when I locked myself out once.

For the last two years the state here has had a campaign to get new students to report illegal apartments like this, usually in basements.

I think although it would not pass inspection as a new rental property as it's been this way for 30 odd years it got around it. The house predates indoor plumbing so when the bathroom was retrofitted it was put where the front door used to be.
