Re: Getting a Tankless Water Heater Installed

We've only had ours a few months but we love it. I'm not going to be able to realistically assess how much it's saved since the old tank was electric and this is natural gas, and our water usage hasn't been the same since it was installed (first a lot of family here while I was recovering from surge...

Re: Bath alcove tiling design help needed!

Thanks!! I never even considered that there would be a design program specific to bathrooms. I'll check them out (well, when I finally get my taxes done... :oops: )

Bath alcove tiling design help needed!

I'm working out the details for tiling around my new tub, and I'm feeling overall fine about doing the prep and the actual tiling but totally NOT ok with figuring out a design to follow. I'm worried (with very good reason) that I'll do a decent job of tiling but that it will look like crap because I...

Re: 2-room house

My Granny and her 6 siblings were raised in a two room house, way back in the hills of eastern Kentucky.

I'd love to see pictures!

Re: Pinterest?

Recently learned that if you post pictures to Pinterest,the small print says that you agree to give them permission to sell your photos and they get to pocket the proceeds. How could they do that if you're posting things from others' websites? They can't sell someone's pictures just because a third...

Re: Demolition Of A Relic: Prop 8

Wooohooooo!!! To put it all into perspective, they made a very narrow ruling that in and of itself doesn't push things forward nationally all that much, but it has the potential for having broader scope once it reaches the Supreme Court. As of 1/1/12, which is when our state's Civil Union bill was p...

Re: losing the farm.......

Don't get me started on how it seems that most of the trade high school schools are now all college prep school that only the best students can get into, instead of being there for students whose skills or interest make them far better suited for trades. Plus, where the hell do they think we're goin...

Re: How to research/appraise antique silver miniature chest?

Thanks, James! Your note was the motivation I needed to just pick someone from their staff list who seemed like a good person to start with (I chose the Collections Director who is also one of the Senior Curators) and send her an email. I'll keep y'all posted on what they have to say about it! I've ...

Re: Found "treasures" and recycling waste..

I wish!! The only things we've found are along the lines of old plastic toy soldiers and marbles - evidence of generations of kids playing in the yard, but that's it so far. I'd hoped for something -- almost anything -- when we had to dig a 60' long 2' deep trench to the garage for new wiring, but d...
