I think the pictures speak for themselves.
However, I often need things spelled out for me, so in the spirit of sharing and advancing human relations I am adding some explanatory text.
The vacuum was clogged and I had planned on unscrewing the back hose bracket so I could better handle the hose.
The idea was to press the hose together so it would be both as short as possible and ridgid making easier to work with.
Not having the correct tool I couldn’t do that, so, old school America for the win!!!
Using a knife I cut the hose near where I thought the clog was heaviest.
A wire hanger was used to push/pull the clog into an unobstructed state and finally duct tape was used to seal the hose.
I then vacuumed the floor which was growing extremely unattractive and verfied a job well done!
Ideally, a new hose would be purchased, but we will see how it holds up.
Thanks for coming!
Now go call your mother! Mine too while someone is fulfilling the chore of chatting up the Moms.

The Sumerians of Mesopotamia, who is thought to have invented writing in the 4th century BC, based their numerical system on powers of 60 (instead of 100) subdivided into multiples of 10. It was from this system that Sumero-Babylonians developed the time system that we use today: each hour divided into 60 minutes, which are divided into 60 seconds.
In olden days time was told mostly by sundials and the first mechanical clock is thought to have been designed by an Italian monk around 1275. The clock was driven by the slow pull of a falling weight, basically like a very big hour hand.

It’s been a week since we finished shooting for The A.R.K. Report, the short film we’re producing with Moskoff Media. We’re only now recovering – it took a bit longer with Hurricane Sandy in between and no electricity – but we’re back and breathing.
The one thing I want to tell you about today is what Katy Castaldi, our lead female actress, told me was the first thing she learned in film school: Something Always Goes Wrong.
Thankfully we had very few mishaps, but here are just two of the highlights:
