Re: Keeping Busy, Isolation/lockdown projects

If anyone's wife is like mine, since I'm furloughed I've had plenty of stay busy projects to do. So far I've built a 7 foot long picnic table for the back yard, painted the kitchen white (it was originally red, so that sucked), repaired and repainted all of the kitchen cabinets, and am now redoing ...

Re: Hail, Hail ice rocks

2 years ago here in Mo we were hit hard during a heavy snow/hail storm that damaged our siding all the way around our house as well as the roof and fence. All told it was 22k total to replace everything, with 1k deductible. The nice part was it improved my house's look so much that I was able to sel...

Re: "COVID-19 Bug In tips exchange"

Don't overfill or the food may expand and try to break your thermos. It is a good idea to match cooking r...

My favorite is Arizona Gunslinger's Chipotle Habanero. It has a nice smokey taste. Sounds Good :D Is that a local brand? I've had that, it is quite good, but if I remember that's an Arizona region sauce, but I might be remembering wrong. It's been a few years since I lived in Az. I also like El Yuc...
