    That didn't work. Last night, the calls started again from No Caller ID at 1:40 A.M. I turned the phone off because I'm not much good the next day without a good night's sleep. I hate to leave my...

    I've been looking at getting a 72" zero turn mower lately, and had settled on wanting the Ferris because of the nice suspension system. Some of the stuff that would be cut with it gets fairly long,...

    If your pour is not large enough to buy aggregate by the truckload, like Martin's job, the easiest way I've found to deal with bags is to buy a pallet from Lowes, or Home Depot because returns are so...

    I'm getting ready to put it in my Mother's house to replace carpet in places, making the house more handicap accessible. Everyone here on the lake that owns rental houses uses it. There are 2...

    I watch CL all the time, and see those types of cheap mixers on there often. I expect people buy them for one job, and then don't want to store them. Might be worth a look, and then sell it if you...

    Last night, all through the night, my phone rang 8 times. Each of those times was followed immediately by another call after I let the first set of rings finish. I looked at it the first couple of...

    Yes, where we have yard type grass, it's either Centipede, or Bermuda, and does get cut low.

    The only thing that I know will effectively kill plants through the roots, is Imprazar. It's first...

    Thanks. They're not quite four feet tall. The rafters were about 3x3's 20 feet long, and had sagged about 5 inches in the middle. Some had split. With opposing wedges over those trusses, also...

    I wouldn't mind, as long as you're pulling with more than a 3/4 ton gas burner. Back when that was the largest truck we had, when we went after a load of hay out of the field-always in the hottest...

    I'm not recommending you try this at home, but..... It takes a combination of Roundup, 2,4,D, and Imprazar to kill Johnson Grass, and it can't be sprayed too late in the Fall, or it will come back...

    I'll agree with that. Framer series lumber is Yellow Pine framing lumber like it used to be. I used it building these trusses in an 1850 attic to fix a terribly sagging roof. I haven't seen YP...
