| Food and Drink Board|| Blackstone Grill at Lowes Hibachi Style - Boss on 10/19/13 at 7:31 am|
Anyone else pick one of these bad boys up at Lowes? It's fantastic. I've been cooking breakfast on it all week. 4 burners, heats evenly, easy to clean up. Did fajitas the other night and they came out great. Between this, the Akorn, and my old Genesis, I will barely turn the stove on now.

| O-T Lounge|| High Quote on AC system? - Boss on 7/22/13 at 9:58 am|
I am pretty sure this company is trying to take me to the woodshed but just wanted confirmation from the OT experts.
Guy comes out, doesn't do a load calc, assumes that what I have is correctly sized. It's for our upstairs which is about 1400 sq ft.
This is what he proposed:

We have a 27 year old home. It has one side brick and 3 sides Masonite siding. The siding is starting to fail. We have some Hardie installers coming out to give us quotes.
How much more would it cost to just rebrick the whole damn house. If we stay here for 20 years we would have to paint t...

Anyone have any insight on if this is going to pass and if it will be effe...

My wife and I don't carry a balance on credit cards, but we just received our bill for the month and they've changed the terms. Any balance is now at a variable rate. It is Prime plus 14.99%.
