Quiz questions are:
1. Was a permit pulled?
2. Was it possible to move the ceiling box over 8"?
Just had to show this one off !!!!

Family Room Over Garage is all I can think of, but I don't understand what calling that a FROG would be different from BROG for a BedRoom Over Garage ... and you never see that used???? Or a GROG for GuestRoom Over Garage.

At least you can see the original beam was covered with the required 1/2" gypsum board ... yeah, that's it, they were exposing it for you so you could see it and not wonder if that was done.

Yeah, what a dumba$$. All he had to do was cut the ends off of a couple of blades.
Ted, besides 'frog', wasn't 'French' also a bad word for a while? Aren't y'all still eating 'freedom' fries down your way?

I lived in mass for 36 years and I remember back then that it was canucks that were the nice guys and frogs that you had to watch out for but never subscribed to any of that either. Every race had their nick names like mine, I had several being Cherokee, Italian and Irish. I heard them all.

[quote=Jerry Peck;174311]I know I've seen that used here before, and that I've asked this question before, but I don't see it enough to remember what it means, soooo ... what is a "FROG"?
Well, in communications lingo, to "Frog" a circuit means that you have switched some part of the circuit with the same part in another circuit to determine what part is failing. Done when failure continues but trouble can't be tested. Just another bit of useless trivia.

More use of the 'Frog
I was in the army a bunch of years.
When wearing a web belt and yolk. The frog is secured, so it is located, centered over the left buttock (for fixing bayonets). The scabbard and bayonet can then be attached to it. Frog.

It could be termed an insult, though it has been used as a mere nickname too. There is no clear answer to how the name came about, but it is thought that the French term for English,’Rosbif’ and the English term for French as ‘frogs’ came out mutually..
The English were called rosbif for preferring Roasted Beef while the French were called frogs simply because they had frog legs for meal!
