We just finished a two story deck unfortunately the pics were lost on a phone switch :( We are now onto painting a residential interior. I wish I had the pics for the deck. I might try to use recovery software on my sd card. If I find them I will post later.

My Bank Sucks!

My bank for my business accounts has recently merged with another one and the service has been horrific. I received a new debit card about 2 weeks ago. The letter with it said to activate anytime. On the 16th my current card would not work and on the 20th all account info would be onto the new bank account. Everytime I called to activate the recoding said cant activate at this time. I called the bank last week and told them they told me ya some are having that problem because of the merger. So how do I fix it? HURR DURR we dont know.

So after some more incompetence and poor customer service I sent the corporate office this email:

My old debit card was cancelled on the 16th and the new one will not activate. So i am without a business card. I needed to pay my state of michigan builders license renewel fee. Now I will have late fees for not renewing on time. Plus I cannot use for supplies. I have to be on the job sites at 6 am and have no time to pull cash from my account. This response i recieved from my bank branch at xxxxxxxxx rd. was they should have sent an explanation letter out. Well reading the explanation letter is not going to make my card magically work. Then I was told it is because of the changeover. Nice excuse. There is no excuse for this. I do construction and if my company installed a faulty granite counter top. I would replace it, apologize, and give them a discount or something else of value for the inconvenience. I would never tell them " well the granite factory was changing over the saws, thats why your counter is fucked up" and leave it at that. This is unacceptable and I am debating closing my account and going to another bank.

I then decided because the bank would not activate my card for me and the activation # on the front sticker would not work that I would call the number for lost and stolen cards on the back. So I had them activate it no problem at all. Why couldnt the bank do this?

within 5 minutes of having that fixed I got a phone call from the bank headquarters responding to my email (which is impressive since it was noon on a saturday not 15 minutes after my email. I explained everything that had happen and that because no one from the bank would help me I called the lost card number and had them do it. Her response.... WAIT FOR IT...... Well its good you got it straightened out. No sorry about that or anything just its good YOU YOU YOU fixed it because we dont give a fuck and it is not our problem. What the fuck. Does anyplace even care about customer service anymore?
Well that was my rant I hope you enjoyed.

Installing a doorbell

Doorbell wiring requires a transformer that connects to a 120-volt circuit. It reduces the
electric voltage to about 12-volts.
Be sure to turn off the electricity before you wire the doorbell transformer to the house power. Turn off the breaker and tell other family members what you are doing. The transformer will have a hot screw and a neutral screw.The black wire from the
house power will connect to the hot screw and the white wire will connect to the neutral
screw. This will give the doorbell transformer power. There will be one hot wire and one
neutral wire that runs from the transformer to the chime box.
The doorbell wiring will use two hot lines that run from the chime box to the doorbell. If
the doorbell is controlling two locations, then it will most likely have two different
chimes so you know which door to answer. The cable will connect to the transformer
with two hot screws for each doorbell. The cable will also attach to each doorbell with
these two hot cables. When the doorbell button is pushed, the circuit will complete the
electrical current and the doorbell will chime

Another missed day of work!

Another shitty day. My truck broke down and could not get it to run. After 8 hrs I think I have it working. had to pull the throttle body off and clean (plus drill out 2 airways with a drill because they were packed with carbon.) Replaced aic valve, throttle position sensor, new egr valve and pipe, fuel filter. I then had to spray throttle body cleaner through the pcv valve line and run out. Seems to start and stay running now but we will see tomorrow morning. GOOD TIMES!
