String trimmer weed eater wacker will not start, diagnosis and EASY repair fix free!
*** MOST BRANDS *** My one year old Murray, quit running and refused to start. This video walks you through the diagnosis if your problem is an empty, or partially filled primer bulb that will not pick up fuel. $Zero cost repair. As always it is best to test ignition by using starting fluid ( ether ) to see if it will run a few seconds on that. This is a fuel issue repair. This video shows that removing the carb or rebuilding is not needed in some cases. The only tool used was a flat head screw driver. Thumbs Up!! @5:40 I say " I used Gumout throttle cleaner with the little red hose squirted it into the brass tube, it came out the little holes then I sprayed off the little screen nice and clean, and the rest of the surface. Now a simple reassembly, put this block back down on the then put the two screws back on with the primer bulb" (paraphrased)

EASY! Ford Escape + others V6  Idle Air Control Valve Replace Repair (IAC)
2001 Ford Escape V6, would not Idle, after it warmed up it would idle at a VERY low RPM (like 200?). Blew copious amounts of white smoke after starting at 3000-4000 RPM. I thought the head gasket was blown and had vacuum leaks until I found info on this IAC ( Idle Control Valve ). This repair is so simple you don't even need your own tools, just borrow a 5/16 socket from your neighbor or the auto parts store. This video differs from others on youtube because it shows the motor running with the bad part, without the part, and with the new part. *** Update*** It has been a few weeks, cold weather has set in @ 15F it still starts and runs just fine. I did not mention in the video that upon examination the old IAC had some significant scars on the rod which I feared may affect performance and made the decision to buy a new one more imperative. **update** 9-10-14, got "the" call from the mechanic this morning that he will no longer issue a state inspection sticker for this car. The under carriage is too rusted, the CAT is leaking, the Y exhaust is shot. So what we own is a good set of tires, a good motor & tranny, to sell for junk!

A comparison of the Hand Holding Dove milk glass original and reproduction.
Atterbury Glass of Pittsburgh produced a milk glass covered dish of a hand holding a dove between 1889 and 1893. Westmoreland Glass of Grapeville Pa. faithfully reproduced this piece up until their close in 1984. Both are very collectible based on their beauty, age, and scarcity. Join me at the dining room table for a close up look! Often found with a stone in the ring, and a glass eye in the bird. Atterbury remained an independent factory until 1903. **Please Like, Share, and Subscribe!**

Another Wine bottle hummingbird  feeder (zero $$)
If you have an empty screw cap wine bottle, a heavy wire, some waterproof glue, a drinking straw, and a piece of plastic bag you are 20 minutes away from a hummingbird feeder! I have watched other Youtube posters videos and it seems the only recycled part is the bottle. I was fortunate to have all these parts lying around. The recipe for the liquid is 4 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, heated to dissolve. The bird in the video found this feeder the day after I put it up and visits every 10 minutes or so. ( unless there is more than one bird?) Be careful when drilling the aluminum cap, keep your fingers away from the sharp edge in case the cap spins!! I think it would be safest just to drill it while it is ON the bottle. *** Update: I threw it away back into the recycle bin. It worked but when the sun hit it the dripping was not tolerable.

Milk glass collecting reference books, catalogs, and commentary.
Collecting antique or vintage glass can be a very pleasant hobby. Many collectors will eventually narrow their liking to a particular type of glass, glass company, or era.

Pittsburgh Steelers retire Joe Greene's jersey #75 Half Time Ceremony
I had the privilege of attending the Steeler - Ravens game when the Rooney family officially retired the # 75. Only the second number ever retired by the Steelers it belonged to Mean Joe Greene, Mr. Steeler of the 1970's. Joe owns all 6 of the Steeler Super Bowl rings, 4 as a player, and 2 as a scout. This video taken from my seats, at night, in a noisy echoing stadium is not the best quality but it should give you an idea of how valuable #75 was to the Steelers, the city, and the fans.

How I built my garden deer fence inexpensively. NO DIGGING !!
I put a good deal of thought into protective fencing after last years garden was very much destroyed by deer and rabbits. The rabbits actually built a burrow nest at the gardens edge and the babies took up permanent residency. The deer always beat me to the first ripe tomato by picking them green, and usually destroy my best plants early. Take a look at my "Deer that ate my tomatoes" video and you will see what I have to put up with. Before I put this fence up the deer had already walked through the onions I had put in early. I love having the deer visit, and we watch the rabbits play in the evening, but gardens are a lot of work and I would rather they stick to their natural food sources rather than eating mine! Watch to the end as I learned a few things along the way that will help. It was my first attempt at this, I did not cut myself, throw my back out, or whack myself with the sledge hammer so I am calling this project a massive success! ( It's been up for one week) Update: I sprayed painted the tops of my sod staples "hot pink" to make them easier to spot in the grass. I removed all the lower zip ties so I could lift the netting to mow under it. They really are not needed if you install the sod spikes. I flare the bottom of the netting away from the garden and stake in the last few rows so that approaching rabbits meet the edge instead of a rounded portion of netting that they might force their way underneath. They have been testing it everyday!! But without success. I have found fresh deer droppings outside the fence but they have not made entry either. ***The reason the fenced area is so big? I plant my 3 kinds of squash, watermelon, and this year pumpkins in the large grassy area. Those plants get HUGE!, and I mow around inside the fence with a 50" mower. ***update, this fence does NOT work for rabbits %^*##& !! **update** 9-12-14 My garden is about finished, just a few peppers and tomatoes left, along with potatoes to dig up. I have currently daily visits from 2 does and 3 fawns, and an occasional 6 point, and NO penetration into my garden with this fence! There was one collision with the fence that slightly bent a post that was probably a deer that could not see it at night but no penetration.
