Diesel Mechanic

Tried searching the forum but this didn't appear to be covered. I'm looking for a place that services diesel engines, specifically 6.0 liter Ford (2006).

Any recommendation would be appreciated. I know I can always head to Smith but prefer to deal with someone in town if there is anyone. Need general maintenance and someone that can to routine service (Oil, tune up maybe recommend performance enhancements for long trips.)

Gable Vent replacement

Looking for suggestions for whom I would call to have my gable vents replaced on my house? Is it a roofer, general contractor, someone who puts up vinyl siding on a house, etc.?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

House thermostat / heat stuck on

House thermostat / heat stuck onWell- this is interesting...

Sitting on the couch, realized I felt hot.

Walk over to thermostat, set point 68, current temp- 76!!

I turn the slider switch to off and after a moment it shuts off as niormal.

Slide it back to heat, and it fires back up.

Popped the cover off to see if I can see a relay (box) that I can try to wack. Don’t see anything.

I’ve never messed with a thermostat in a house before. Ugh.

Guess I know what tomorrow’s project is.

eBay 2019

I used to sell on ebay (years ago) and just went on to try and sell something. It's completely new, and I'm a bit hesitant to use it, Seems much more geared towards bigger sellers and not little people like me. Does anyone still sell as a hobby, not big ticket items? After all the fees, not sure it will even be worth it, seriously. Just looking for advice from current sellers, pros and cons.

One lane tunnel near Donaldsons

The other day I saw a freight train sitting right before the tracks over the tunnel. I have never seen a train there before. Anyone know if tracks are still used or was this a fluke?

Dr. Jay Geller

Just left Dr Geller’s office and what a great experience. Was scared bc I am doctor phobic and he was the most passionate caring doctor. His nurses were great too!

He took the time and called within 24 hours with lab results.
A brilliant doctor with a gentle heart.
