Hi Doug

Maybe Bob's Ghostery makes the difference ...
Been back in recovery mode again. Got both eyes done and was in the hospital with blood clots in my lungs . The drs. think I got the clots from black mold. Been down awhile. This 148 yr.old house got me during rehab, now I'm way behind and the house is a wreck lol...

It's wasn't like that

This was my parents house since 1976 . I was here as caregiver for dad for 13 years and decided to buy my siblings out after dad passed 2 years ago. I know there were problems here though as we were always feeling crappy and dad was in and out of the hospital a LOT . I thought is was allergies to birds as dad used to breed parrots .

I tore out the carpeting , and started rehabbing one of the front upper bedrooms , tore out old wallpaper and it was black. This was an exterior wall that was leaking . I tuckpointed when I purchased the house but I guess that wasn't all that was needed. I tore out the 148 year old plaster and blamm, I got a face full and you know the rest of the story..

"got a face full"

So much like using a web browser today without protection.

When I was young I didn't use face masks. That ended long ago and I no long take the chance of what's in the dust I kick up during repairs.

Yeah, you had talked about those things before.

I forgot. Mold is bad stuff.
Saw a PBS documentary on ship breaking in Pakistan. Not a hard hat or even a pair of gloves in sight on the workers.

Also seen in China

And most third world factories. Reminds me of a scene in Blazing Saddles near the beginning where they save the cart.

Like the Blazing clip,

the supervisors and such had safety gear, even though yards away from the action.
At least there were no children doing the breaking.

I tend to ignore such if I can read the article.

Me too.

It's the original TV business model. I pretend I'm going to the toilet during commercials.

Just now checked, and it's also at top.

I was scrolling before. Maybe my eyeballs got out of sync with the real world.
The message has a link to how-to disable various blockers. I'm sure someone will use it. Grin
