    Being as Im STILL out of work (Not that I have been looking), my Wife said that I can help her keep the house clean. Today, I was told that I need to dust the house. It takes my wife 3 hours to dust the things around our house. I figured I can do it in 20 min., to which she replied "yeah, sure". WELL, Im done. I started 30 min. ago. and took a 15 min break, so I did it in 15 min. HOW? you may ask?
    Step 1: Have a 15 gal. air compressor with wheels.
    Step 2: charge it to 135 psi
    Step 3: Plug in your favorite high pressure air nozzel along with 10 ft. or so of air hose.
    Step 4: begin dusting.
    Take care of dusting around things that are small and breakable. 130 psi will blow a small figurine down the hall just a little slower than a .22 cal bullit. Ask me how I know.
    Also, when the compressor fires back up, it may scare the dog, cat, whatever pet you have in the house.

    Kitchen cleaning:
    I also had to dispose of the Turkey we have been eating over the Holidays. Why a woman buys a 50lbs. Turkey to feed 3 people is beyond me.
    I dumped it in the sink, and turned on the garbage disposal. DO NOT DO THIS. Just dump the Turkey in the trash.
    My kitchen sink drain quickly pluged up. What do I do. Well, I have some time to kill, so I took my plunger out. Took the rubber part off, and made a coupling for my aircompressor. Once again, I charged the compressor to 135 psi, connected the new "Chris4x4 drain blaster" to the air hose, and put it over the clogged drain. I hit the valve while holding the "drain blaster" tightly over the blocked drain, and it unclogged the drain! BUT, it blew all the Turkey into the dishwasher via the dishwasher drain. Yes, there were dishes in the dish washer, and yes, they were clean. I cleaned the dishwasher of all the Turkey meat that was blasted into it, threw it in a garbage bag, and took it to the trash.
    Tomarrow, Im gonna find out what I can do with the vaccume. :D

    She's gone but not forgotten.
    put your 20 inch box fan in the window, blowing out, high speed.

    take all the little nick-nacks off the shelves and tv stand.

    fire up your trusty John Deere back pack leaf blower.

    you can actually see the dust going out the window if there's a sunbeam coming in!

    This is what happens when a guy has too much time. Reminds me of "Home Improvement". Just make sure to grunt when she sees the crater in the wall and explain that the duster needed more horsepower.
