Re: Bathtub Drain major problem

Thanks for the additional tips. We'll try a few more thing this week. Thanks for the suggestions of putting in an access panel and buying it first, so we can make our cuts into the drywall fit the panel. Hadn't thought of that. Great idea. [more]

Re: Bathtub Drain major problem

Thanks for the suggestions. We are in Florida, so this tub sits on a concrete slab (no basement). We are now thinking we will cut into the drywall on the other side of the wall, and reach under the tub and replace the whole thing. It is starting to [more]

Bathtub Drain major problem

I am hoping someone can come up with some suggestion on a major problem we are having with our bathtub drain. This is a rent house and the bathtub is iron with enamel coating. It has seen better days, so we have decided to have the tub and tile [more]

Money Market account or better way to go?

We have some money in our credit union and they have suggested that we change it to a money market account to make more interest. Is there some better account? We could tie it up for a couple years, but would really like to be able to access it, so [more]

Re: East Coast Vacation Recommendations

Hi ChiliChild - We already are familiar with Tripadvisor and VRBO. I was looking for more of a "feel" suggestion to great places perhaps other Fools have been, etc. Thanks for the suggestions though. I think on TripAdvisor, as well as VRBO, [more]

We are looking for coastal vacation recommendations in either North Carolina, Virginia, Delaware, or New Jersey. We try to rent a beach house every Summer for a week, and enjoy the ocean. Last year we went to Cocoa Beach, FL and it was very nice, but [more]

Re: Re-doing bathtub/shower-experiences?

Thanks for all the info and thanks for the links! I originally thought the plastic overlay things looked trashy too, but have seen some in model homes and such and they look really good these days. They are a bit pricey though! We will probably go [more]

Re-doing bathtub/shower-experiences?

Has anyone redone a bathtub with one of those acrylic shower insert things? We have a rent house and the tub/shower combo is a little worn. We got an estimate of redoing the whole thing of $8000 (new tub, new tile, new showerhead, etc.) That sounded [more]

Cool side dishes?

Any suggestions on an interesting and simple vegetable side dish I can serve with grilled chicken and a baked potato? I am thinking something not starchy, because I already have the baked potato going on.... Maybe grilled zucchini? That sounds pretty [more]

Re: Neighbors dogs

I don't know if this pertains to you, but around Lake Tahoe, they spray Pine Sol on the doorways and around the yard to keep the bears away. Maybe you could spritz your side yard with Pine Sol on the day he lets them out....

I am going to paint a headboard of a bed. It is a yellow-ish painted finish and I am painting it white. I have a nice little foam roller that I think will do an OK finish. The paint I am using includes primer. Here is my question -- if I want to [more]
