I'm thinking more along the lines of Diego Rivera or Thomas Hart Benton.

D. G. Rossetti, if you don't mind having a really elongated chin. He keeps it classy so no worries on that front.

I mentioned Modigliani cause of your long neck... He was a genius ,with a hard life and he loved painting women with long necks and he fell in love with them. But after this I changed my mind... Sometimes the silence and mystery can lie... Brain it's a terrible thing... But it's ok... You may have luck in some other field.

Modigliani: Portrait of a young women,1918 etc
(and he often didn't paint the eyes , saying that he will when he recognizes the persons soul)

I'd be careful, Kristijan. She does have a chainsaw in her hands and it looks like she knows how to use it.

So in the clean shaven pic you look like a writer.

In the bearded one, with the addition of some overalls, work boots, and a tight t-shirt, you'd make a good plumber😀

Are you rockin' a beard or clean shaven at the moment?

From what you said about the heat where you live, I'm guessing you keep the winter as 'beard season.'

A handsome fella with or without.

Plumbing to me is banging around and cursing for a few hours with intermittent trips to home depot, then giving up and calling a real plumber.

I don't think the outfit would help.

I was surprised -- the beard doesn't bother me in the heat. I have one now, but it's much shorter.

Otherwise, I grow it and shave it off at random intervals for no good reason.

First off... never go to Home Depot for plumbing parts. Fucking knock-off Chinese parts never work.

Find a Fergusons or a Morrisons or some reputable supply house and pay a few dollars more for quality parts.

Call or text me (I posted my cell # here somewhere), and I'll tell you how to fix anything.

Okay okay!

I don't buy fixtures at Home Depot -- but that's because they don't have what I want. Aren't the brand name products from companies like Moen okay?

What's an example of something I shouldn't buy? Something like toilet replacement parts? And I bought a kit to replace the little faucet and line that goes to my refrigerator -- wouldn't that be okay?

The parts seem pretty rudimentary. I guess I don't understand what could go wrong. But that could very well be because I don't know what the hell I'm doing.

I sent this photo in because I was on a panel discussion at a seminar and they needed something for the website.

But my wife said it made me look arrogant. And I was like arrogant how?

She said arrogant as in arrogant douchebag. Ha ha! I think maybe she was reading something into it. But maybe not...

Here's another one I sent in to go with a tongue and cheek article I wrote about website templates. This one also really annoyed my wife because I don't smoke. She refused to send the link out to anyone...

Moen and Delta and Kohler and American Standard all manufacture products for Home Depot or Lowes, etc. only. They actually subcontract the manufacturing to a company called Globe Union, which makes almost every home stores house brands. The stuff is junk, made with inferior brass and plastic shit.

So... in short... if you buy Moen from a home store it's not really a Moen.

There are qualities of brass. It ranges from cheap as shit remanufactured scrap brass, to the good stuff that will last decades. Same with Cooper, steel, bronze, and stainless products.

The only think I buy from Home Depot is 2 x 4's and caulking. Everything else is Chinese knock-off junk. Even their tools are made for their stores only. Brands like Milwaukee, Dewalt, Rigid, all proprietary bullshit. Breaks down in a few months of use.

A reputable supply house will not sell this junk. The difference between a Home Depot Milwaukee Sawzall and a real one are night and day.

So I guess I lucked out buying my fixtures at a showroom store. That was just for aesthetic reasons -- and they were a lot more expensive. The only faucet I bought at Home Depot was for the sink in the laundry room -- but that doesn't get much use.

But that might explain something. I bought a Honda lawnmower at a repair place that also sold new stuff and never had a problem with it. They were going out of business so I got a good deal. It got stolen and I bought another Honda at Home Depot. That thing has been a piece of shit -- I've had to have it repaired several times.

I shouldn't be surprised -- I know Walmart makes manufacturers lower the specs on a lot of the brand name stuff they sell.

Oh well. You really do get what you pay for.
