School Bake Sales - are they still around? - meeple
There is a bake sale fundraiser at work going on, which reminded me of bake sales when I was in elementary school. Do these exist anymore at the elementary school level, or has it all come down to kids bringing home flyers for overpriced tumblers, cookie dough and other useless items?...

Someone stopped in front of my house and took a picture and drove off - meeple

Does homeowners insurance cover damage from a leaking A/C? - meeple
Our A/C leaked, soaked some of the ceiling and walls, and got under some of our floor. I've already ripped out all of the wet sheetrock and affected floor. I can only suspect a clogged drain line because our drip pan is filling up. I'll have to deal with that. But my question is, does homeowner...

Haven't seen one of these yet. I've read that it's about time to put down a 3-1-2 formula fertilizer but I can't find anything with this ratio. What is the OT doing for lawn fertilization?

However we are shown to be owing federal taxes when for 2014 we received a refund (about a $1000 swing). Everything else from year 2014 to 2015 is the same... incom...

What is your preferred length of jeans? - meeple
How long do you typically like your jeans to be? Without shoes, do you prefer them to be just past the heel so you can barely "walk" on them, just past the ankle, etc? The shoes I'm talking about wearing them with are just slip-ons....
