Stripping (heat gun), sanding, priming and painting began. But the inspection tour found a storm, one of the biggest (29x62), ...

Re: Wondering...

Skip....... with all the links, I did go to Wavy for a look. But, settled here for now. Someone posted here, that they too were getting the spam problem(?) Hope both have settled down. Keep up your double snooping to help us out.

Re: HOW TO POST PICTURES OF YOUR OLD HOUSE!!!!

New here, but snooping around and getting the hang of it. Putting a photo (or more) in a post with Photobucket link worked. In case I need that link for other things, once in there, I copied all my links and pasted them in a NotePad document and saved for easy reference. Saves time from having to go...

Re: Wondering...

Just jumped on board here, and haven't noticed any problems. Will soon see if anyone likes my contributions, or comments. So far it seems slow and quiet(?)

Re: NO MORE SPAM: Forum has been upgraded

Newbie here, and have not seen any problems. Don't mind the moderation approval period for incoming mails to you. At least you are watching. Interesting to see that all the people who ran to the "other" forum are experiencing the same problem, from the same people. Someone mentioned a "study" and a ...

Re: I have outlasted the Neighbors From Hell!!

Been through 30+ years of neighborhood generation changes. Drugs, gangs, hoodlums, junk, MURDERS! We seem to be in a "quiet era" right now. We'll see what happens as some of the new young-un's start to grow up, which depends on the parenting skills. Of course, none of that time revealed anyone who k...

Re: Unfinished kitchen cabinets

Cabinet "color" is up to the individual tastes. Do you like the natural light look, medium, or dark? Are you trying to match it to any other wood decor in that room?
