Oh, I didn’t know you worked my MySpace!
I didn’t see this coming
I reached out, even looked for
on a breath that you might not recall
Then waited as I did
over and over
My impatience and hope shining through.
Only wishing you well
not wanting more than confirmation
as I pressed against your door
I can see your breath through an ancient keyhole
and you refuse to answer
Happy Thanksgiving Lucy.
Sad as I am, I hope you are truly happy.
- Me: I recently bought an older home and want to change the kitchen light fixture (standard fixture, 2 60watt bulbs). I took the old fixuture off and found that there is no ground wire. Just a black wire and a white one. The new fixture I bought has a ground wire and the instructions are fairly firm that it should only be installed where there is a positive ground. What can I do other than having an electrician in to rewire? Is this as serious a problem as the instructions seem to indicate?
- Internets: The manufacturers have to cover themselves. The ground wire can be attached to the metal box the fixture is mounted to. This is really all that can be done without a total rewire of the circuit. It will not damage the fixture, however keep in mind that without a ground, the metal parts of this fixuture, even the original fixture, could become energized if there is a short in the wiring.
Not sure if I’ll make it out of here without killing people today but I’m trying.
