Daily Prompt: Snack

Snacking is great especially during a long day at work. Protein is king to keep you fueled. My favorite snacks tend to have copious amounts of peanut butter in them along with some form of chocolate, nuts and pretzels. I also enjoy peanuts on their own along with the occasional cashew. Of course there are chips and dip which is always interesting. Snacking is not bad if done in moderation. Often snacks have to take the place of meals when you are so busy you can’t slow down to have a legit breakfast, lunch or dinner. In my drawer at work there are a good assortment of snacks to keep me going. Like anyone I enjoy quality nibbles at home during the evening.

What is your favorite snack:

Tony The Plumber, I Am Not A Professional Though

I did a little DIY tonight replacing some key components in one of our bathroom toilets. Trust me I am not a professional so don’t ask me to come to your house to do the same thing. Part of home ownership is doing all the things or having all the things done to your dwelling that your apartment superintendent used to do.

The thing on the left is a flapper that stops the water from going into your toilet bowl. On the right is the fill valve that brings water into your toilet and stops at a certain level. Both are necessary for your toilet to flush and function properly.

If either unit doesn’t work right it could cause a spike in your water/hydro bills. They are fairly easy to replace under the right conditions. If I can do it some people can but of course a professional plumber will do a better job than I would but I like saving money where I can.

Just a reminder that water always wins, at least that is what I hear on “Doctor Who”.
