Re: graduation gift ideas?

If it was me, I'd fall back on the gift card. If he likes to travel and is also sort of the outdoors-y type, then REI has a lot of things that are useful for such activities. That would include travel bags, bicycle stuff, camping gear, backpacks, [more]

Re: RIP: CSI

NCIS was spun off (loosely) from J.A.G. not CSI. The first 2 episodes (which introduce the key leads) were actually J.A.G. episodes.

Interestingly, I've had people tell me 'No' once they learn you're attending the soiree.

Re: Adventure

Glad you all are home safe & had a good trip!

For my college years, I had to ship things back & forth after the folks dropped me off freshman year. This was back when you could take a bicycle on a plane in a big box. :)

Re: I'm just about done with

Last week this statement was disproved.

Re: Getting tape residue off glass plate

Success!

Thanks for the Windex suggestion. For some reason I didn't even think of it! I had a gallon jug of the stuff that someone left me when they moved and I hardly use it.

Getting tape residue off glass plate

I bought some inexpensive colored glass plates this week. When I went to take the price stickers off the bottom, a lot of label was left behind. I'm having a hard time getting the adhesive off!

I tried the "similar tape" method* [more]

Uh-huh.

Re: Smoke Stench

Just adding scent to the paint isn't going to neutralize it.

If the house is really that bad, it may be better to consult a company that does smoke remediation rather that go the DIY route. If I had a place with smoky carpet and [more]

Re: Contacts vs Glasses

And then there's the issue of sunglasses. You can wear regular over-the-counter sunglasses with contacts, but do you need sunglasses with the bifocal prescription? Or clip-ons so you can really be stylish?

Re: The Blacklist 043015

My latest silly theory (go ahead, prove me wrong), Reddington is telling the truth by insisting he isn't Elizabeth's father - he's really Elizabeth's mother.
