    Sunset at HYEOPJAE BEACH | AforAlyce

    January 6, 2020


    Do I act normal? Do I look around? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Just like we’re walking. Make sure we don’t get run over. Careful, there’s a bike… Let’s leg it. So we don’t get run over. (LOL) We’re like we’re running away from something. Hey, Helen! Hi Where are we? We’re at a beach called Hyeopjae? I’m probably pronouncing it really wrong. But we are watching the sunset! Have a look! Waaaaaaaa! Waaaaaaaaaaaaa! We’re at the Hyeopjae beach on the west side of Jeju. It’s so much easier to drive around the island so we rented a car. Weeeee! This stunning beach is famous for its breathtaking scenery volcanic rock formations. These black rocks were formed from lava, and you can easily find them across the beach. If you look carefully, you can even find signs of life! Air definitely is really nice. I really like the air here. I don’t think anyone’s ever commented “I really like the air.” This beach has very nice air. XD Helen’s over here! Hi Hi! Any thoughts? Yeah, it’s really nice and relaxing watching the sunset. Mmhmm! Watching the sunset on this beach is ever so romantic. It’s understandable why many choose to get their wedding photos taken here. This beach is amazing!

    How to Run/Fish Electrical Wire Through Walls & Ceilings | The Home Depot

    August 30, 2019


    Running electrical
    wires behind your walls is a great way to add
    an additional outlet or switch right where you need it. We know the idea of working behind
    drywall or paneling sounds difficult, but fishing electrical
    wires behind walls is a job you can do yourself with a
    few common tools, a helpful assistant, and a little patience. First things first. If you aren’t comfortable
    with wiring projects, hire a professional electrician
    to run your new wire or cable. Check with local building inspectors
    before doing any electrical work to ensure compliance with local codes. Now let’s get started. Determine the location
    for your new device. Then decide whether to power your
    new device from an existing outlet or from the breaker panel. Diagram your new wiring path and
    measure for the length of NMB cable you’ll need. Buy some extra cable in case you
    encounter any unexpected obstructions. To be clear, cable refers to
    the wires inside the jacket where the wires are enclosed. Be aware that wire just means the
    individual circuit feeder wire itself. Ready to go? Let’s do this. Step one. Turn off the electricity. Make sure to turn off the
    electricity at the breaker panel to the outlet or circuit
    breaker you will draw power from for your new device. Use a voltage tester to confirm the
    power is off at the outlet or breaker. Be sure a new device will not
    overload the circuit from which you will draw power, and check
    with local building inspectors before doing any electrical work to
    ensure compliance with local codes. Step two. Mark for the electrical box. Use a stud finder to insure the location
    for your new device isn’t on a stud. Hold the electrical box up to
    the wall in the location where it will be installed. Use a level to ensure
    the outline is straight. Trace around the box with a
    pencil to mark the area to be cut. Step three. Drill a hole in the ceiling or floor. If you’ll be running
    cable through the ceiling, carefully drill a hole
    with a 1/8 inch drill bit through the ceiling above
    the new wall box location. If you’ll be running cable through
    your basement or crawl space, drill into the baseboard or floor
    right next to the baseboard instead. Insert a stiff wire or straightened
    coat hanger into the hole. In your attic or
    basement, look for a two by four beam adjacent to
    the protruding stiff wire. In an attic, this beam is the top
    of the wall, known as the top plate. In a basement, it’s the bottom of
    the wall, known as the bottom plate. If the two by four is under a piece
    of plywood or covered in another way, measure two and 1/2 inches from the
    reference wire toward the two by four and drill there. That should put the hole
    in the middle of the plate. Check with a flashlight to be sure there
    are no electrical wires or plumbing pipes behind the walls
    where you’ll be working. Step four. Cut the opening for the electrical box. Drill a 1/2 starter hole at a corner
    of your electrical box outline. Start at the hole and cut along
    the outline with the drywall saw. It’s OK if the edges of
    the opening are rough. You’ll conceal this opening
    with a wall plate later. Step five. Run the cable. In your attic, use the spade bit to
    drill a hole through the top plate directly above the new
    electrical box location. If you’re running cable through
    a basement or crawl space, drill a hole in the bottom
    plate directly below the box. Feed your fish tape into the wall
    opening, pushing it up into the hole you made in the top plate. If you’re running a cable through
    a basement or crawl space, push it down to the hole
    in the bottom plate. You can use the end of a coat hanger
    to pull the end of the fish tape through the hole. Step six. Running cable past a fire block. A fire block is a horizontal beam of
    wood running between the wall studs. You can drill a hole through
    them or create a notch to accommodate your wire. To drill a hole, insert
    a long, flexible drill bit through the opening
    for the electrical box and position it on the
    center of the fire block. Then drill through the fire block. To cut a notch cut into the drywall
    at the location of the wall block. Then use a sharp chisel and a hammer
    to cut a 3/4 inch wide by one inch deep notch in the fire block
    as a conduit for the cable. Pull the cable past the fire block. After you have fished the
    cable through the notch, cover the notch with a metal nail plate
    to protect the cable from nail damage. Then patch over the drywall hole. Step seven. Pull the cable through the wall. From the attic,
    basement, or crawl space, use electrical tape to secure one end of
    the cable to the hook on the fish tape. At the wall opening, steadily
    retract the fish tape, pulling the cable into the wall opening. Be careful not to create friction. This might damage the cable sheathing. It also avoids making kinks
    that could damage the wire. And there you have it,
    running wire made easy. Now before you start
    running wire yourself, make sure you have all
    the items you need. For tools, you’ll need a stud finder, a
    voltage tester, drywall saw, fish tape, chisel, level, a cordless
    drill including a 1/8 drill bit and a 1/2 inch drill bit. If you don’t have a
    cordless drill, they’re available to rent at The Home
    Depot Tool Rental Center. For materials, you’ll
    need some guide wire. Got any questions? Head over to your local Home
    Depot and spark up a conversation with the handy folks in
    the electrical department.
