It's the time when the world breathlessly awaits the Nobel Prize Awards and announcement of those who made great contributions to humanity. In fact, we submitted one of our contributions to mankind. Who knows, maybe it'll win. Ever notice when you're working with small parts over -- or even near -- a drain of any type (in a sink or tub or on a basement or garage floor), that when you drop one, it rolls and rolls right into the closest drain as though drawn by a magnet? Well, fear no more. All you need to do is remember to close the stopper first. "No stopper," you say? "Just an open drain"? Then cover it with a towel (or whatever), and you'll never disassemble a p-trap to retrieve a part again. OK, maybe we won't win a Nobel Prize, but surely we'll get a thank-you for saving the day. Somehow it seems only fitting that "Mighty Mouse" also made his debut on this very same day in 1955. And that's the On The House tip for today.
