    Flooring company versus general contractor ?

    I would use a contractor to replace the wood portion of the floor (underlayment) and the door. Then contract a flooring company to do the finish work on the flooring (tile, hardwood, etc...)

    Best Car Battery to Purchase

    There's youtube vids showing how to remove the acid and refill with a mixture of epsom salts, and that's supposed to revive a stone cold dead battery. Maybe I'll try it someday when I have nothing else to do and a battery I don't care about. Here's one I saw recently. This guy is kinda crude...

    Best Car Battery to Purchase

    My neighbor has a Prius that uses a smaller 45Ah battery just for starting. For whatever reason, he took it out and replaced it after a few years, gave me the old one. I've been using it in my solar project and as far as I can tell it's as good as a new battery.

    Solar Power

    Just an FYI for anyone using a 12VDC to 120VAC inverter. They all have a 3 prong outlet (hot, neutral, ground) but the ground is not connected to a real ground. If you use one in damp conditions where you'd normally use a GFI circuit breaker for protection, a GFI cannot work and there is no...

    Processing grief

    Thanx for the share. You should be, and apparently are, grateful you got to speak with him. Many from my childhood days thru high school have passed, but no one I was close to. But we are approaching the time soon when friends I am close to will be passing. I am not looking forward to that.

    Best Car Battery to Purchase

    I've never had a problem with WalMart (EverStart) batteries. When the battery in my vehicle dies, I get a replacement from WalMart. It's usually still in the vehicle when I sell it, and I keep vehicles for many years. My 2000 GMC pickemup was 13 when I got rid of it, went thru one original...

    Man Headed to Pokey for Shooting at Fireflies He Thought Were ‘Alien Lasers’

    Is America turning into a nation of dunces?

    I am the first to admit, I don't know 2 out of the 3 above. Not because I'm stupid, not because I have a learning disability, but because it's not interesting to me. But by the same coin toss, I can tell you (generic, not specific to Kyle) about things we were taught in school that you have no...
