We have a two car garage, and are starting to need more storage space. Currently its just an empty garage that holds the lawn mower and other lawn equipment - nothing else is in there but with both cars, space is a little limited.
I have seen several different ways to add shelving and storage, b...

| Money Talk|| Should I save money or pay off student loans quicker? - PrettyBird on 10/8/13 at 11:12 am|
I have $20k in grad student loans.
I can afford to take about $1000/month ($500/pay period) and either put all of it towards my loan payments, or put half in savings and half towards the loan.
I don't know which would be smarter... any advice?
| O-T Lounge|| The Best Indestructible Dog Toy You Have Bought - PrettyBird on 8/16/13 at 12:28 pm|
I am done wasting money on toys that fall apart in 3 hours, but my dogs are bored as hell. I need a suggestion for toys that last more than a few days. They love to tug-o-war and rip things to pieces.
Looking to order stuff online so links would be great. Even home-made toy suggestions I'll take....

| O-T Lounge|| Guilty Pleasures: What's Yours? - PrettyBird on 4/2/13 at 12:26 pm|
Sitting in a coffee shop working today, and currently witnessing a first time, in-person meeting from some online dating match between two divorcees, each have kids, like coffee, both have iPads, would rather text than call or email, and are both socially awkward.
CAN'T STOP LISTENING.

I have crossed out the belt and the timer, both are intact and the water is filling up and draining. Just no spinning going on.
I think I have it narrowed down to the motor/transmission, but I really have no idea what I am looking at or doing.
I took off the front of it and poked around, but...

I am about to do some DIY projects with some pallets.
Does anyone have first hand experience at taking these apart? It is definitely not done by taking out nails... huge fail when I attempted that.
I'd also like to know if anyone has stained the wood or changed it in any way. I'd like to stain...
| Outdoor Board|| What should I do with all my old appliances? - PrettyBird on 3/27/12 at 9:11 am|
Got all new kitchen appliances, and I was thinking all the ones I replaced would be great for a hunting/fishing camp. They work perfectly fine, just was time to update the kitchen.
I also have a bbq pit that I recently replaced as well. Old one works well, just needs a new home too.

Ok so every summer my backyard gets overrun with these devil things. I kill them and even leave their bodies scattered about to scare their buddies from choosing my yard, but it never works.
Are there ANY preventative measures I can take??
All I do now is hunt for their nests and wait till n...

Why does this happen? I get random girls friending me every so often. Most have no mutual friends, some have 3 or 4. I don't know them, have never met them...what do they gain by asking me to be their friend?
Does this happen to y'all? I though the initial era of Facebook -get as many friends as...

So I just had a roach run across my office floor, and I proceeded to fly into the hall, requesting the help of the closest male. I'm not a pansy but I despise roaches and the thought of crunching them under my shoe really freaks me out. Anyway....finally the 3rd guy came to my rescue and killed this...
| O-T Lounge|| Wednesday Pet Peeve of the Day - PrettyBird on 9/21/11 at 9:38 am|
When the gas station is crowded, you finish pumping gas, leave your car at the pump, and go inside to buy fat kid snacks and cigarettes. MOVE YOUR CAR YOU LAZY POS.
I cannot stand this. I just refuse to believe that you cannot see me waiting behind you to fill up.
What pet peeves are both...

Not sure if we have a lot of green thumbs on this board, but I want to completely re-do my garden in front of my house. It's pretty small and just lines the front. Right now I have some small bushes surrounded by mulch.

Our back patio is completely tiled, but there is one long line where the concrete has cracked due to the ground underneath sinking, therefore cracking all the tiles on top in half. Is there any way to remedy this?
Thankfully its all the way to the far side of the house where there isn't much tr...

I find it a bit trashy when I see a chick walking around with her nips sticking out through the shirt.
Although, this happens to me at the gym all the time and I just refuse to wear multiple sports bras. But it's the gym, so IDGAF.
What does the OT think? Trashy or not trashy while in public s...

| Outdoor Board|| Anyone gone on a chartered fishing trip before? - PrettyBird on 3/2/11 at 10:00 pm|
Looking to do one in about a month or two.
I want to know a few things, should we definitely go offshore? And if we do is there enough time to do that in a day trip?
I would also like to go out of Venice/Grand Isle area.
What am I looking at price wise for a group of about 6 people?
| Outdoor Board|| Invisible Fence for Dogs - PrettyBird on 1/2/11 at 4:28 pm|
Anyone use one of these on their dog? The kind you plug into your house and has about a 90 foot radius all around.
I have a rather large dog and I'm worried he will just go charging right through where the "fence" ends and it won't be effective.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Opinions?

My condo has a small backyard, and I have put down brick tiles for one half of it, from my door and shed to about half way across the yard. The rest is grass. Or I should say dirt with some weeds and dead grass.
It looks really bad right now. My question is what should I do with the second half...

Anyone know where there are dog parks in the Mid City or Uptown area?? I'd like to find some fenced in parks to bring my dogs, but nothing shady with ignorant owners. (If that is even possible) I take them to Audobon but I'd like to bring them somewhere they can run around and not have to worry a...
