Used the same problem solver last week.  I'm wiring a 3 way circuit to 
operate a light from both the bottom and top of the stairs.  It's a simple 
enough circuit but I hadn't done one in over 20 years and thought I could 
remember how to wire it.  After nearly and hour or frustration and tripped 
breakers, I decided to have lunch.
A sandwich, some cole slaw and a beer calmed me down enough to look inside 
the box one of the switches came in.  Dang--there was a wiring diagram. 
Five minutes after lunch was over the circuit was working.
About an hour ago my 4 year old grandson face planted himself in the Ottawa 
River.  The look on his face when he hit that fridgid water was worth the 
price of addmisssion.  Better still was my son scrambling in to get he and 
coming out limping with both ankles frozen.
