Burst Copper Pipe Repair Discussion
[ February 28th 2016 12:20 pm ]
My copper pipes froze and burst during an extreme cold winter storm. It has been the most extreme challenge I've faced thus far with my physical disability. I've made this video to share how they were repaired and I was able to get the water to my home back on. This isn't a demonstration of plumbing. This video is to share my knowledge and would help someone in a similar situation know how to approach the problem. It would also be good for a home owner who has little knowledge of plumbing before calling a plumber to make a repair.

One of the benefits to using a power wheelchair is being able to enjoy nature and speak to people as I go about doing my errands.

Challenge To Technically Inclined Hover Board Owners
[ February 22nd 2016 11:13 am ]
I have the idea that a hover board could be converted to a power wheelchair by adding a second pair of wheels, seating system and joystick for control. As well multiple options could exist for the wheel bearings based on the users need and use of a wheelchair. The cost of medical equipment is extremely expensive. I want to see the price come down. I feel the invention of the hover board is able to result in a cost effective wheelchair. I don't have the money to pursue this idea. Instead I've made this video to share my thought. I am hoping someone will run this idea.

I do this to engage in the best quality of life possible. In doing this myself when pain doesn't inhibit me I am able to work on my own schedule and not that of a service technician. This is peace of mind for evenings, weekends and holidays.
