What Can Brown Do For You?

Non-paintable caulk and dishwasher

A couple weeks ago, I made the choice to finish the trim work in my 2nd bathroom, and used non-paintable caulk (who knew they made such a thing?). Anyway, I got some BIN primer the other day, and wouldn't you know, it sticks. Not well, but with 3-4 coats of primer, I'll be good to paint. I'm so happy I don't need to rip all the caulk out. That would have made me unhappier than I already am about this.

In other news, the dishwasher stopped working yesterday. Completely dead, died and not working. After playing around with the electric for a while, we determined it did have power, but wouldn't work. After looking though the internet for a while, we tracked the problem down to a blown thermal fuse in the control panel. It's a $15 part that is commonly blown, so they've upgraded the part. I'm guessing the dishwasher was getting power when the generator was on, which couldn't have helped it. It's working for the time being via a bypass, and the part should be here tomorrow.
