Contractor Wisdom

For the first time since we moved in, I had to change a lightbulb in the chandelier in our foyer. This reminded me of some sagly wisdow my contractor passed on to me at the time...

He explained to me that the chandelier is held into the cieling via a nut. And that over the years, as people clean and change the bulbs on the light, they ever so slightly twist the chandelier - causing the nut to get unscrewed. 20+ years of these minor movements causes the whole setup to collapase one day for seemingly no good reason. So be careful.

So there you have it - home ownership advice staight from a pro.

Now, for the life of me, why can't I remeber anything useful he attempted to show me....
