I've got something similar,but I'm afraid he could accidentally pull the cord in his sleep.I'm looking for a small device that needs an indented finger push button that he can't accidentally activate by rolling over in his sleep and doesn't have the high frequency decibel thing.I just want a mellow beep that gets me up and on the run,not a freakout device.

 No biggie,I'm sure my Hellish life will involve social workers next week and I'll go over it with them I guess.

 I was just mulling the future over and was hoping someone who has been through this could share some experience.

Also-TY SFW-I've already looked into monitors but this request was more of the "you've got 90 seconds or he's braindead" variety(Pops,not me,I'm already there. {#Lol} ) type look see,the monitoring thing is a separate lurking type issue I'm looking into.Pretty much will have that covered,but that's more for keeping him under KGB surveillance rather than for the total meltdown emergencies.

 I barely got him last time and it was only because my friend heard his wheelchair(and Pops) fall.Coulda been my completest fail.

I'm letting our friend stay here because he works 18 hours a day and the drive time to his house is a 2-3 hour round trip,depending on traffic.His wife is a sweetie and is really concerned about Pops in a heartfelt way.

 I do want my guestroom back though so I can hear Pops during the bad times,but I can't boot someone I've known for 50 years outta there when he's got those babies to support.

 It's something else.

  Pops won't be able handle the walkie talkie anymore due to palsy(old term) which was our emergency communication system.I also had a crappy secondary backup doorbell ringer wire tied to his walker,but the weird batteries are unreliable and don't hold up.

 I need something small that I can hang around his neck that is louder than a crackhead mofo without a dime and is louder than a CO2 beeper that he can(hopefully) push and get the troops(me) on the ball.

Anyone who has experience with this,chime in.

 Yeah,I could Google but I wouldn't be able to get a 2 day order in until Monday anyway.

Any first hand experience folks out there?

No experience with that but a baby monitor might be a good addition to whatever you set up. Like if you're out emptying the trash or something and he calls out thinking you're in the next room, you might still hear it with one of those. Ours was pretty crappy but it worked okay; I'm sure $50 would get a good (not so staticky) one these days.

Nah. It's not very bright, really, and depending on the scanner, it's hitting one area of the photo for maybe 1/10 of a second, probably less.

It is true that it is exposure to light that fades photos. Same thing happens to your furniture, carpets and wallpaper if exposed to a lot of light over a long period of time. Don't want your photos to fade, keep them in a drawer and never look at them. Keep your curtains closed too. 
 
In all my years of reading, live seminars, webinars, vlogs, blogs, etc., I have never heard that scanning is particularly bad for a photograph. One of the main reason's to scan a pic is to preserve it. All photos fade.
 
congrats on figuring out the scanner {#Cheers}

 
 
thata a cool pic. gonna tell us about it? 

 
Thanks! the couple in the middle (Irish looking dude) is my great great grandfather and gg gmother  taken in Italy. I'm assuming early 1930's.

With only 30k in 7 years, that's what,  4k per year.  I'm betting that its cheap STALE gas, with some condensation in the tank, assuming everything is ok mechanically.  

Some Techron as mentioned by cc for sure would be a good thing.  Put it in with the tank empty and go for a 300 mile ride, seriously.  Pick a brand name gas and try and stick with it.  Cars do get used to a certain fuel and since you use so little, its not going to cost more than a couple of bucks extra per year.

Also a new cap and rotor would not hurt either, given the age, not the miles.  A cap and rotor is a simple DIY low tech R & R thing requiring usually only a nut driver and little else.  About $40.

A word of caution with the Techron, there will be a big racket from the injectors for about two tanks of gas, but that is nothing more than the crap being cleaned out.  Then life is good.  If nothing has changed and you still have the knock, take it in for a closer look. 

Also, never, ever get gas at a station when there is a tanker dropping gas into the tanks.  It stirs up all the crap at the bottom of the underground tanks.  It takes about a half an hour for the stuff to settle back down to the bottom.

Thats best because without being able to hear the sound and its location we can only give best guesses from here. Hopefully its something cheap and easy. With only 30k miles it shouldn't be anything serious but unfortunately you never know so its definitely worth getting it checked out.

 
Thanks, Dave. I have spent absolutely no money on that car since I bought in 2007 except oil changes, so I guess a trip to the doctor won't be too bad.
