Re: Enamel over cast iron kitchen sink (and some house info)

I'm no help, but I LOVE that sink! I would really like to find one like that (or similar) for my kitchen. I have a double sink/double drainboard over metal cabinets in my pantry/laundry room, but something like this would look fantastic in my kitchen. Looking forward to seeing more pictures.

Re: THERE IS A LIFE BOAT!!!!!

I agree with Rosemary; Ken contacted me & asked if I would help with Admin for the board. They are terrific & I trust they are still happy & healthy in their Maine Victorian. They contacted you recently to help with Admin? Or in the past? If it is recent, does that mean that maybe help is on the wa...

Re: Anyone want to move to Texas?

That's about right for near downtown Houston, but Waxahachie ???? Haven't been there in a while, but the last time that I did go there, it was closed. My taxes are about $1000 per year, but they would be higher if I didn't send the tax assessor photos each year of things that need to be fixed or fi...

Yeah, have to log in every time I pop over, too. I thought it was one of my security settings that got changed by accident.

Re: The Boards are now back open...

I hit the register button today by accident instead of the login, and noticed that registration required typing in a code. Is that something new?

Re: I love the old ones (new member introduction)

I guess a lot of "normal" folks might think me nuts, being that I work for Pella Window Corp and can buy top of the line windows at pennies on the dollar, to use 100+ year old windows in a house. :D Some say the eyes are the window to one's soul, but I feel that windows are a house's character and ...

Re: 6" square hole in wall behind gas stove for shutoff - MICE

Soak the hole and the area around it with peppermint oil or oil of wintergreen. Mice will run from it with their dirty little heads crying from the smell. I saw mint oil in the store yesterday in the cleaning products. Highly concentrated and only $1.99. Is this the kind of thing you're talking abo...
