Re: "Right to work"

This so-called right-to-work legislation has done nothing to help with unemployment or the economy in Wisconsin. Recovery from the recession is lagging behind other states. Property values have dropped around here (my house is now down about 40% from [more]

Dumb smart phone question

OK, this is my fault for hanging onto an antiquated Samsung flip phone for so long, just because it worked well as a phone and fit into my pocket!

Now I've got this Samsung Galaxy Avant smart phone (Android, I think maybe it's the budget [more]

Re: Alternative to Ebay: Tradesey

Same thing happened with my beloved New Balance 811 walking shoes. I was amazed when a pair of them, in my size and width, showed up on the clearance rack at a shoe store!

How's the delivery from this outfit? I gotta admit, I haven't [more]

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

I hope your move goes well.
Me, I would also tend to think of going for the awesome credit rating when getting a mortgage. Re-financing has, for me, turned out to be a total mirage.

Re: Things I did not know about freeze proof faucets

I did not know that either. I took the hose off, but I guess that wasn't enough, and we had some really cold days. Fortunately the plumber who installed it also replaced the valve leading to it, so I was able to shut off the water to the hose faucet [more]

Re: Paint Color Choice Mistakes

My dad did the same thing with the dining room walls, I think it was when I was six. The color was something called "mushroom". And my parents (or maybe it was my mom) decided it was too dark & Dad re-painted it in a lighter [more]

Re: S.E. Loosiana Gardening

Wow. You have been working hard! I have not done much yet, this year. I found some volunteer arugula, and ate it. There are some more around the garden area.
Harvested a few stalks from the rhubarb plant, which is huge.

Re: Eliminating Smoke Stench

I'd consider washing the walls first, and washing the windows. This could brighten things up considerably & probably help with the odor. If there's carpet, get rid of it. Then see how things are.

Maybe they were afraid the kids would play in the dumbwaiter, or send pets up and down.

I don't know about dumbwaiters but have you considered having a washer & dryer on the same floor as the bedrooms? That's what my mom has.

Re: Bigger than baby steps.

I suppose there's always the Salvation Army. Once in a while, a wedding dress does show up at the store I shop at. It's usually the only thing they put on a mannequin.

Or EBay.

Re: Park in Airport Lot, Let Them Rent Out Your Car?

No way. The last time I lent a car to somebody he used it to cruise around looking for dope. And it was almost out of gas when I got it back. I was also finding Goldfish crackers under the seats and in the upholstery for months.

Smart phones

I hope this is a good place to be asking this.

I'm finally about to break down and get a smart phone. I have stayed with this disappointing flip phone too long. Without changing carriers I have a choice of these (and a few more that are huge [more]

more paper management

I am SO ANNOYED with all this paper. I wish I could throw it into a barrel in the back yard and burn it! But that's illegal, and somewhere in this mess there is/was a stack of (paid) medical and dental bills I wanted so I could do taxes. What can I [more]

On the other hand, when a discussion turns into an angry political argument, it seems helpful to have a place to send people.
