Re: Chauffeur at large...

It's an accepted fact that if one finds oneself at a Starbucks one MUST take out one's electronic device (phone, tablet, laptop or all of them, etc.) and put it on the table.

Re: Anybody Here.......

Those are great. Those who use a Garmin or Tom-Tom have to get the maps updated and it (sometimes?) costs money.

Re: The nanny from hell

Our tenant from hell was at least evictable (at great price).

Re: X-post: Vinyl versus Steel Siding

Do you ever have hailstorms?

The buyers of my parents' house put metal siding on it and it was promptly destroyed in a hailstorm.
