Whoa! Sorry to post and disappear. The phone man was fixing the loud buzz on our land line, and the DSL and phone were off for quite a while there.

We thought isolating the cause of the buzz was going to be a major project Saturday, but it turned out not to be caused by anything inside our house. Hubby called in the problem yesterday, and the phone man showed up this morning. I was surprised by how long it took him to isolate and fix the problem, but it’s done now.

I tried calling you cell to cell, Onyx, but your battery died just as you answered, sigh... What kind of a phone do you have? I’ll send you a stinkin’ charger cord. ;-)

Anyway, all is well here now, but I’m in the middle of several chores, so will BBL.

Oh cripes! I think it’s a pantech by AT&T. I found the cord and have had it charging. Odd that it cut out. I tried to answer but it did go dead. I didn’t know who had tried to call. Thanks for telling me it was sweet you!!! I am listening to Rush, but fixing to go lie down soon. I’ll also BBL.

Excessive moisture and dust will cause a smoke detector to act up. Have to blow the one in my workshop out with low pressure compressed air every now and then (the ionization chamber is open to the environment with slots cut into its' cylinder).

I always check it out afterwards with a cigarette, don't really trust the little *test button* method completely.

Think some manufacturers recommend replacing them every 5 years.

My guess, and it's only a guess in my own case, is the plates in the ionization chamber become dirty, hold moisture more, which reduces normal micro-current flow which the detector circuit falsely recognizes as smoke between the plates causing the reduced current flow.
Very sensitive circuit to say the least.

Hard to say what your problem is, you may even have the older photo electric type which work different from the newer ionization types. They depend on photon scatter of a light beam by smoke to set off the *Chirp* by a photocell.

Other than the *Chirps* you seem to be in good shape.....Good deal!!!

If those chirps are still there when I get home it may be quail season for them.

Mine is a Blackberry because it’s a contract work phone and got tired of carrying more than one. I found out how to cut and paste with that but forgot and havent tried to do it again. I’m looking into getting a Blackberry driver for the laptop.

I never could get flint to work. Thank goodness for matches. But I have lit charcoal with sticks and twigs. In November. lol

I like both of them.

I think that I will only make a few new ones and wait till closer to Oct 1st. That way I can use current news to make a few. And we ALL make more as we go along. I'll have too many if I keep it up. LOL
