  • When you get lika spayed please please have them perform a gastropexy. It will prevent her stomach from ever flipping if she bloats. It’s common in deep chested dogs. My golden just had GDV happen to her. Was an emergency surgery at 10PM at night to save her life. If left untreated the dogs will die.

  • Trent is certainly an egomaniac, he seems to need to validate his work long before a true tradesman would do it. There is no good reason to power up the panel before one finishes wiring it and usually not before inspection. The furnace should have been left on the temporary wiring, this was strictly an ego massage. He did the same thing with the water distribution, nobody charges a water system during the winter unless they are massaging their ego. Therr is no upside to having charged water lines in an unfinished home and a huge downside if the heat goes off with nobody around. At every turn, Trent proves himself to be a bigger jerk and example of why most homeowners shouldn't be allowed to build their own homes.

  • Little furry babies and even some larger animals get car sick. It has to do with inner ear development . The balance centers for their bodies are in direct line with their ears and their eyes. When a pup cant see where they are they a spinning action felt in their stomachs triggered by the inner ear water level changing its level quickly. Now in the beginning puppies more or less react the same. Orient them where they can relate their environment on the same level as their body. As their inner ear matures they get much better on rides Now with Leeka a young pup her sight and balance are kind of inter unconnected very strongly. Not only does this affect balance but affects the way they see thongs

  • Your body temperature meaning that it is spring, only means that you are still young and you have no broken bones or have not had any broken bones within the last few years. I am only 56 years old and broke a bunch of bone to my left foot and ankle just a few years ago and arthritis has settled down LOL. I was born and raised in Minnesota. Now I try to get as far south as I can in the winter LOL. But the humidity in the summer in the south is stifling LOL so I try to go north in the summer. Nobody ever said the traveling for life was easy LMFAO🤣😂😅

  • Are you guys going to wire in a security outdoor camera system? If you do make sure to hard wire it, no batteries to mess with,. You can check on your house from anywhere in the world. Check out Security Camera Warehouse. I bought one of their systems and they have excellent lifetime free support .. Also hard wire a burglar alarm system. Don't forget Ring door bells.

  • Not an electrician...but.... I have never seen the logic of wiring a domestic building for lethal voltages, like 240 or 110 AC. Yeah, for producing power and transmitting it, high voltage AC is the best. Many personal/domestic stuff can and does run on 12 Volt DC. Computers, LED lighting, and you can get 12 volt DC versions of most white-goods, like Fridges, T's, washing machines and the like. Anybody who has an RV knows this. But the market pushes 240 or some other high and lethal voltage onto the public! So the market dictates this insane practice. This also means that most home appliances have to have a little step-down, AC to DC transformer...all very inefficient. And despite many precautions, people still get electrocuted. So why not one big step-down where the power enters the house? Of course, it may put a lot of electricians out of business.... 12v DC is also great from the emergency/back-up power point of view. Even in RV's, 240 does not make a lot of sense. You need an inverter. Why? Most of the time, to re-charge your laptop or phone or whatever. So you pull 12V from your solar panel or battery, it goes through the inverter, comes out at 240, and then you have to put the 240v plug in which, is a lead that has a step down transformer back to ~12 volt to charge your laptop battery! Totally insane and inefficient.

  • When he was on top of the ladder dancing I am seeing a man now who had fallen from something they're not sure what because no one was present. He ended up with a head injury and when he last spoke to his wife he told her he was laying down cuz he had a headache. Three days later they had to release the pressure in his skull and he incurred brain damage. So now I see him for physical therapy and he's unable to move on his own has to use a hoyer lift to move him one area to another. So I guess what I'm trying to say is don't think you're invincible what you think might not happen could happen this guy was very athletic and whatever happened to him will never know but maybe something similar.

  • I like to write in Sharpie on inside of electrical box where that wire goes. Like the Feed wire, to Light, to receptacle etc. Inside the panel cut a 1-1 1/2" section of the outer romex insulation and slide it over stripped romex inside box where it enters the panel. Then label the circuit that goes to on that section of insulation. That way it's clear what that romex connects to in the house.

It makes it sooooo boring to watch you, cuz you are always listening to the same stuff, once by Trent, and again by Allie. I would rather see more substance, and less chatter. I am going to revoke my subscription. It just not worth it.
