Re: Ideas for 1st Anniversary Present

Tickets to a play, concert or other cultural/music/art/sport event that she would like.

Re: unfavorite-ing a board

You will never go wrong or be out of style with WHITE. :)

Re: Organizing and tossing

I could make the carport a garage, but it would be really, really small. There's also no good place to put a door into the house, so it would require a substantial remodel of the kitchen, most likely, to add a door into the house from the garage. [more]

Re: Recycling via Craigslist

Of course, continuing to use perfectly good appliances and fixtures would make even more sense.

Except this is a rental property in an upscale area. The facelift and kitchen reno changes marketability. I can charge $200/mo. more in [more]

Re: Lowes/Kwikset thumbs up

The basic question is why did the locks sieze.

In the good old days you would suspect a lubrication issue. Time to make sure they are properly lubed. And perhaps that will resolve the issue.


The lubrication was fine. I [more]

Lowes/Kwikset thumbs up

We have a rental condo where we had swapped out the door locks to Kwikset's SmartLocks. On a rainy Friday night, the tenants call me to say their key isn't working, which is odd. When I arrived with my passkey, it didn't work either. The other [more]

What's a stab mixer? Will a hand held Cuisinart be OK?
