J&W Roofing did an awesome job on my roof as well as 10 or so other houses in my parents neighborhood. He will also beat pretty much any other company's price, especially Garcia.

Looks like my decision to resist all but one really tiny piece of king cake yesterday worked in my favor since Ive been stuck between 177-178 for almost 2 weeks now.
Whats even more exciting is that my goal was to go from a 42w down to a 36w. I got some jeans for my birthday an...

Great job man. Its amazing how much a better diet coupled with exercise can change the whole composition of your body. The best part is you dont ever have to starve due to esting more often and you are losing weight at the same time....

Well on ours you just have to add some water and push the button that says white rice or brown rice. You never have clumpy, hard or burnt rice anywhere. Even the rice on the bottom is soft and taste as good as the rice on the top.
Just asked wife an she said for brown rice its roughly 1c rice to ...

I think a pressure cooker was one of the best kitchen inventions ever made. We cook so many things in ours theres rarely a day we dont use it. Its also the reason weve had to get a bigger freezer because we are able to cook so much at a time since we got the cooker.
But to answer your question, w...

I know it was for lawsuits. It isnt worth being sued over a pregnancy test, condoms, or a couple boxes of cigs. I mentioned those because those were the most commonly stolen items we came across. And if it was under 100 bucks value, typically they would recover the items and let the person go. I alw...
