Paul and Gina,
If some day you do go in to Shelburne, send me a PM ahead of time and I'll give you some tips on what there is to see. Also, in addition to Shelburne Farms, there is a separate Shelburne Museum covering many acres. They were both part of a consolidated estate at one time and then two sets of heirs went in different directions. However, both areas are very nicely preserved.

I had a number of plumbing leaks where I had installed screw-on fittings for my new PEX pluming (pressure side). I probably have twelve to sixteen of these fittings that I installed for easy repair (see picture below). They didn't leak for about ten days and then road vibration evidently caused them to leak so I had to tighten them all up over a period of several days. First one would leak, then another , then another. My water heater igniter electrodes closed up the spark gap and became unreliable in starting. I reset them to about 1/8" and it never gave any more trouble. I had a drawer slide break and the drawer fell out and broke into five pieces. I'm trying to find a replacement drawer slide (center mount) but they're obsolete and I haven't had any luck yet. So, nothing big, but several small things.

White Screw-on Fittings that Loosened in several places...I'm also replacing the 25 year old water pump this spring.
