So the feeder out front was empty.

4 birds come to the window, sit and beat on the glass. "hey, human, lets go.. we are hungry"


I understand why my parrot would do that, he was domesticated and had lived with me for some 30 years, but its funny how wild birds learn where the food comes from.

Fun fact: electrical safety codes (since 2020) have been getting updated to require GFCI on all residential circuits.  This means new constructions only have GFCI-enabled breakers in the breaker box.  Local GFCI outlets on the first outlet of a circuit in a "wet" room (litterbox, kitchen, not-inside) are still required, for additional purrotection.  You can still purrchase breakers without GFCI purrotection, but those are now relegated to commercial and industrial applications.

Yup.  My town isn't on the 2020 code yet but that's definitely the new rule.  AFCI are required in some locations too.  My house is 31 years old so we only have GFCI in the kitchen, bathrooms, and garage, so when I do work in other areas, "it was like that when we moved in."

For a major renovation I'd replace the panel with one that has plug-on neutrals.  I hate pigtail neutrals because they clutter up the box.

If we had listened to Nikola, we wouldn't have all this wiring mess.  Of course his wireless transfer stuff was terribly inefficient..
