Plumber Here Today

We have a plumber replacing the problem sump pump (what a silly name for a mechanism). We are suitably grateful as this puts an end to the laundromat issue.

The whole thing puts me in mind of a poster I saw 'way back in the '70's. The society that scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither their pipes nor their theories will hold water....

We will never scorn excellence in plumbing in THIS house.
