    HAHAHAHAHA! YEA, ME! I fixed the thermostat for the heating stove in the living room! The stove was installed Tuesday and I put in the thermostat on Wednesday. I couldn't get it to work no matter how I wired it. I didn't re-check the thermostat since it's only two wires which are labeled and pretty much foolproof. But I guess I'm a big enough fool that it wasn't foolproof enough. I took it apart today and round a broken wire. Voila! All fixed!

    The dog and I are now enjoying celebratory cheese and Triscuits.
