"...I think we're status quo on the DH, because it is the single most important feature that defines the differences between the two leagues."

That's the best reason he could come up with for the NL not adopting the DH? So [more]

Re: Boosting home value for resale

For as little as $5,000, you should be able to add a new suite of appliances, as well as a new countertop and flooring, resulting in a fresh, coordinated look.

For $5K, you [more]

Re: AREEP

Thanks, Yoda. I wondered why AREEP hadn't changed price recently, but never really looked at it.

The other notable preferreds left on the Pink Sheets is PLDGP which is one of the few, long call dated issues remaining. It would be nice if [more]

But there are other winged seeds:

Yeah, that nails it. There are no mountain hemlocks around here, but its seeds look very similar to what we have. So even though it isn't mountain hemlock, it clearly is some sort of tree seed. Maybe [more]

Re: Wet (dry?) rot in door jam

wecoguy, thanks, we'll put that on the list. Either PVC or foam board, or maybe wood if we first put a moisture barrier down. I'll leave it up to the handyman to decide; maybe he's done this sort of thing before.

Re: Wet (dry?) rot in door jam

Maple tree seeds??
No, I should have thrown a dime in to provide some scale. They are roughly the size of termite wings, so about 1/4" long.

But I think you've got the right idea. They could be seeds from a nearby tree, [more]

Re: Wet (dry?) rot in door jam

I don't know what they are, but based on my google image search, they aren't termite wings. As I suspected, it seems all termite wings are translucent, and these are definitely not. They also are not flat, but have some "depth" to [more]

Re: Wet (dry?) rot in door jam

And watch out for termites. The damage they cause can be similar. They bring their own moisture by contact with the soil.

I really wish you hadn't written that.

Ok, it's better to know than not, so of course I don't really [more]

Re: Wet (dry?) rot in door jam

Yuck!

Thanks for the explanation, Peter. It's definitely out of my league, but hopefully a good handyman can handle it.

Re: Wet (dry?) rot in door jam

Thanks for the reply, Chuck. But I'm confused, as the video shows the door frame being repaired, not the jamb (perhaps I'm using the wrong terminology).

My problem (as I hope can be seen in the photo, though it isn't easy or obvious) is to [more]

Wet (dry?) rot in door jam

I'm really baffled. A few months ago I noticed that there is rot (probably wet rot, but I'm not positive) near the bottom of the door jam of our front door. I simply can't imagine where the moisture is coming from. However, I have seen that the area [more]

Re: DIY computer recommendations

Phil, I don't know if I'm way too late or not. I've been piecing together the parts for a new computer myself (my current one being over 6 years old), so for once I'm somewhat familiar with current technology.

I've decided on a Skylake-based [more]
