    Nope, not at all Dave.

    Last year I almost had William talked into recording his singing breaker box and then making another sequence of the breaker box sound.

    I've experienced this from my outside sub panel, at first, it made me worry that something may be wrong in the panel but so far so good!

    You need to explain to the "wife unit" that hair dryers, curling irons and other bathroom appliances CAN NOT be used during the display season.

    And that that is your FINAL decision.
    I knew that. Just rounded it off.

    that might be my final decision, would not be the last word, and it would not be coming from me

    That's why they invented microwave ovens and frozen dinners, even I can do that! Plus, then you can get a girlfriend to invite you over to her place for meals.

    think I will postpone any decisions till in the morning. plan to hook up the electrical connections tomorrow, and if a resonable solution to the hair dryer problem is not found.

    I think I will "lawyer up now"

    Correct because it is a current and not voltage issue. It can couple to neighbor's houses and in extreme cases through transformers.

    The problem is at the Breaker Panel. Easy Fix!
    Locate all breakers that Are Not associated with your display. Turn those breakers off. Tell the wife to come back after Jan 1st & help celebrate the Lighting of the House. Don’t worry, she’ll understand…

    this may the the best legal option. I went and brought back breakfast this morning, and she was just getting out of bed. I have now decided that doing away with the hair dryer, curling iron, etc is not an option!!!!!!
    Maybe I just need to call the electrician monday morning.
