| Outdoor Board|| Roof Hail Damage Claim - Grassy1 on 3/16/14 at 1:10 pm|
Is there any reason not to file a homeowner's claim for hail damage to a roof?
23 years a homeowner, never a claim. I'm told it's a pretty substantial expense.
What's the repercussions of filing?
I know we've got one or two experts in this field......
| Outdoor Board|| Is this an extremist view? Re Second Amendment - Grassy1 on 3/4/14 at 7:46 pm|
Whenever discussing "gun rights", the first thing I ask is "Why did our founding fathers create the Second Amendment?"
Was it so we could hunt wild game? maybe
Was it so we could defend ourselves from our thug neighbors? maybe
Was it so if our government became overbearing, we could take it...

Five of us on the boat yesterday in Lake deCade. Sun never would really pop out for more than a few minutes here and there... mild wind. It was better than being at work, but not a great trip.
Caught about a dozen trout, although pretty nice ones (15-16"ers) and one nice largemouth bass.

My wife has decided that her magnalite stuff has lived long enough at about 20 years old.
