Back home now. Since I made those security changes I have had just one person applying for membership. I've just replied with the usual activation mail. it remains to see whether that is a spammer or not.

The violent flood of spam started right after the forum had been upgraded. I wonder if some of the security settings were in place before that, but were overwritten somehow in the upgrade process.

Speaking of safety does anyone remember when June ran her fingers under the foot of her machine ? She posted a pic of her finger and the needle stuck in it. That photo left a lasting impression on me and it is why I have a tool pouch hanging on every machine in our shop. To remove the foot in the event it happens to me or someone else.
It does no good to have tools 3 ft away when your hand is mated to your machine.

I have ran my finger against the foot numerous times and causes an instant moment of shear panic. The foot hits your finger and it scares the hell out of you.

This is the one I use and I have had it for years with no issues. We have used it in the home as well after we got over a flu bug or virus. Hotels use it to clean rooms and freshen the smell. Have you ever smelled the outside air after a lightening strike ? That is what this Ozone generator smells like when it is running. Strangely enough, ozone is also used to treat municipal water supplies. It is safer to use versus chlorine.


There are some things you need to be aware of.

1.) Never use it in the same room around people who have asthma or COPD. The smell will dissipate after an hour but keep it away from these people for an hour after it is shut off.

2.) Never use it long term or for long periods of time around electronics. I use it inside coaches to get rid of mold smells and odors but limit the time to 2 hours max because of all the electronics inside a bus.

This is a blurb from the manufacturer:  The air purifier eliminates odors from tobacco smoke, smoke, pet smells, paint fumes, molds, pollens, allergies, chemical gases, dust, food and just about any odor you can think of. It is attractive and powerful and leaves your air smelling clean and fresh. It can be used for home or commercial use. It covers up to 3,800 square feet of space

This powerful Ozone and Ionic Air Cleaner breaks down and destroys odor causing agents and cleans the air with its Ionic cleaning power. If you have an odor this is your solution! Even powerful enough to remove smoke. This high end air purifier has 2 stages of purification, washable Ozone plates.

Breaks down odor causing pollutants and dropping airborne particulate from your breathing space. Recreates the natural balance of +/- ions to significantly reduce air borne particulate. Negative ions created around the clock to keep down dust and particulate. Plate receiver slot-allows insertion and removal of ceramic plates for cleaning.

I cannot speak for the rest of you but I call myself nucking futs for ever getting into this business. :)

Like Ed I call myself a business owner. But in all actuality we are all tradespeople. There is little difference between us being a diesel mechanic, HVAC technician, mason, lineman, etc. We all specialize in a trade.

Alright how about these answers,

I make homes beautiful.

I put smiles on people's faces.

I make housewives happy. Say this one with a slight mischievous grin on your face.

And then you have to go right into your 30 second elevator spiel.

Steve: great. something to look forward to.

Kody: Had this already too. It's people just trying to be polite. But honestly, there has to be a better way to answer. Neither want either, they're just talking.

Anyway, these questions aren't for nothing. I'm pushing myself hard to network. So far, so good. Not my idea of fun, by necessary.

Steve - well, that's the plan. Upholster pieces with a lower price tag than some of the high-end stuff.
And, use it as a showcase to gain commission work.

When somebody asks what I do for a living I first tell them I am a business owner. And then I tell them I reupholster furniture. Then I tell them I've been doing it for over 30 years. At this point I pause and wait for the next question. And that is usually where did you learn? Then if its a man he will ask if I do car seats. If its a woman she will ask for an estimate on her sofa. That's when I point to Rose and say she does all the estimates.
