    Hey Libnan1 !! Love ‘Leb-Electric’ … right?? Aoun at the ‘on’ switch. ;-)))))
    The power came back on for the usual couple of hours in Tripoli, and a friend of mine had the main fuse blow right out of the fuse-box … which was fortunate, because the smell of heated plastic accompanied the moment, along with a touch of smoke from the panel.
    I suppose MTV’s fuses were clamped in better … or they used oversized ones to cut down the maintenance crew needed to stuff them back in every time. :-)))))
