Question by carterburwell | last reply
I hope I am not coming off lately as just complaining about life in general, but just letting those who know me well enough to want to know, how things are going. This has just been ONE OF THOSE WEEKS (and it isn't over yet ! ). Monday and Tues, I had to help my wife prep for cataract surgery (two days off, but not really much of a "vacation"), Wed. she still needed assistance in picking things up off the floor when she'd drop them....and today, I had to go in and meet my Mom at the Ear doctor (she's been around 60% deaf since early childhood, but never wanted to learn ASL). They cleaned out her ears, checked the hearing aid, and put fresh batteries in it.....then since none of that helped, they checked her hearing. A 120 db beep was inaudible to her. And, being quite advanced in age, and slowly slipping into senility, she is unable to accept this "new" condition. It is very disheartening to not be able to help or do anything at all to help. I know this is not really a "social" arena, and is more geared towards DIY then just airing greivences, but I thought I would share this one thing and hope I didn't irritate too many of you all out there. Thanks for reading....

My mother won't let me make fireworks or anything. So i can't buy fuses and i have to make all my fireworks from household materials so my mom won't get suspicious, she'd never let me play with fire. Any suggestions on convincing her to let me become a pyrophysist?

Hey, just wanted to apologize for my not being around much of late. My Mom has had to have 2 glaucoma and and 2 cataract surgeries and all the prep and followup appointments etc. all have taken a bit of a toll on me, and definitely on my free time. I WILL be getting back to the forums as soon as things are more "level" and less hectic....meanwhile, I have a few ideas for some projects if I can get some hardware cheap at a few garage sales before the season closes. I am still gathering a few parts for my "vintage" radio projects I have planned for later too.

Hello everyone! I've got some patches that are burning a hole in my pocket, and I'd love to share them with you! Here is my plan: on a not at all regular schedule, I will come up with a harebrained idea for a strange and/or difficult to acquire picture. I will take an example picture and post it in the community blog. You will then go and take your own version of said picture and post it here in the comments, and in return I will send you a patch. Sound good? This needs to be your original picture, but if you feel the need to cover your face or whatever, that's fine. Just make sure that you identify yourself in some way, say with a sign or something with your username on it. For example, if I cared about preserving my anonymity I would wear a paper bag over my head with eye holes cut out and "Depot Devoid" written on it in sharpie. Photoshop is fine to touch up pictures, but don't overdo it. I don't want any pictures that are completely photoshopped fabrications . . . unless they are really awesome. I reserve the right to be the sole judge of what is awesome and my decisions are totally arbitrary and cannot be appealed to a higher authority. I AM THE HIGHER AUTHORITY MWA HA HA HA!!!! Anyway, here's your first Photo Scavenger Hunt objective: A picture of you and your mom (or grandma, or some reasonable facsimile thereof), engaged in lightsaber combat . . . to the death! Go forth my minions, and bring me pictures!

The ad for supposed free trial offer of the two teeth whitening products by the so-called unemployed mom is a total scam & rip-off ! Not only will you be charged unauthorized from them but, also by other companies who are given your financial information.

Before you vote... Voting begins in less than an hour, and all the entries look great. But before you vote, I encourage everyone to remember the purpose of this contest. To make a gift for our deserving moms. While some of the entries are really awesome instructables and good examples of sewing, they are not exactly something I would give my mom as a gift.

Question by lukesmom922 | last reply
I need to toggle a solenoid between 2 positions. It isn't spring loaded so needs to be powered between states i.e. a +6v and GND pulse to the coil then wait 5 to 10 sec's before sending another pulse but with the polarity reversed. Simple to do with a 'Mom-OFF-Mom' double pole double throw toggle switch e.g. JAYCAR Switch Tgl Mini CTR-OFF DPDT MOM CAT.NO: ST0358 but I would like to be a bit more automated. Ideally the cycle will start at power on and then automatically repeat every 30 min's or so but if that makes it too complex, then a momentary push button switch could be included to manually initiate the cycle.

I'm looking for a device to stop my mom's cat from darting out the door. My mom is 78 yo. and doesn't react especially fast. I'm wanting some sort of electric mat that will only be activated when the one cat is on or near it. The door is used constantly by humans and the dog uses the door also. Therefore, it can't be activated by stepping on the mat. I'm thinking of a collar device that the cat would wear that activates the mat or activates a air burst or sprayer, etc. Any ideas?
