Re: Solar Water Heating

I purposely quit paying my water, sewer and garbage bill for MONTHS, hoping that they'd disconnect the service and quit billing me. They sent me threatening letters, but never acted to disconnext the service. [more]

Re: Solar Water Heating

This year my rain water supply is stretched because I substantially expanded my garden, which pretty much needs daily watering during our seasonal dry spell.

Re: That thing I'm working on

Well, I wouldn't give you negative points for that. I understand. When you're not the one you consider "boss of the groceries," you need to get confirmation that you made a right decision, or you need to explain exactly why something that [more]

Re: Autumn kale volunteers

A perennial plant survives from one year to the next.

Re: Autumn kale volunteers

I guess a couple of plants went to seed and fell onto the ground. I don't understand why they waited so long to pop up, but I potted several of them and plan to grow them over the winter.

Re: Property Drainage Issue Involving Neighbor

Re: Property Drainage Issue Involving Neighbor

My wife an I have planted trees, ground cover, bushes, all of that stuff on our property. It is an uphill battle as weeds like to regrow so we are working diligently on getting some more aggressive ground cover to choke out those [more]

Re: Help with ID...

I was thinking like on the bottom of a chest or trunk. The skinny part would go into a channel or c bracket of some kind until the tab it the side. Then the tab would anchor it on the side.

Re: Another whine about lack of workers

I understand why independent truck owners put in the long-haul trips, but why don't the large trucking companies do it with relay drivers, so the drivers can do a round trip in two different trucks and go home? [more]

Re: Another whine about lack of workers

It is a major investment to buy and maintain the equipment. UPS does it (relay driving) and it works. Then again, it IS expensive--as the cheapest UPS rate for a single letter is nowhere near the cost of 46-cents charged by the USPS for that same [more]
