re: Uber in Orlando? - convertedtiger
We use Uber quite a bit while in Disney. It's much easier to get from one resort to another that way. We also take Uber from our Disney resort to Universal when we are visiting "the dark side". It is generally much cheaper than taxis and much faster than the shuttles. One tip, take a bus/walk to t...

re: Describe a roofing job to me. - convertedtiger
With all the other work that is needed in the area, pick almost anything besides roofing. There are many jobs that are much safer and much less hot. After 6 houses, I will never roof another. I will hire that crap out from now till I'm worm food. It's hot, dangerous, and you will be the only one s...

re: Chase Bank is saying I have to have a licensed contractor to repair my house - convertedtiger
After some of the estimates that we have gotten back and after seeing some of the work from these licensed contractors, I can certainly see wanting to do the work myself. 90% of the quote are pretty much legal rape and I can do a much better job that some of these jack wagons. Yeah yeah yeah, I ca...

re: What's the oldest your grandparent, great-grandparent, or even parent lived to? - convertedtiger
Both of my grandmothers smoked for most of their lives. Both had quit for about 20 years before they passed and neither passed from cancer. One just slowly passed from us. Like her battery just started running down. Both passed in their sleep without some long slow and painful death. ...

re: What are your thoughts on kitchenaid products? Paging Napoleon - convertedtiger
We bought this Samsung model: RF28HMEDBSR. It's a big one with the middle drawer that we have found using more than any part of the fridge, besides the ice maker. It was a Consumer Reports(yeah I know but it is still data) Best Buy and we got it for under 2k. GF has been looking at the type and we...

re: Paging OT A/C technicians. Cost to move outdoor compressor - convertedtiger
We are waiting to move ours as well. We have to replace the whole system so we are going to move the unit about 10' to put a door in the back and extend the deck. I've gotten quotes all over the map. From $500 to $2k. Many units went under and most AC companies are working like a one legged man in ...

re: What are your thoughts on kitchenaid products? Paging Napoleon - convertedtiger
We went with the 28cuft Samsung with the four doors and have loved it. Samsung and Kenmore Elite tend to be the highest rated fridges year in and out. The ice maker makes some seriously good ice so far. We didn't go with one brand. We got Samsung washer and dryers and the fridge but will go Bosch ...

re: Anyone ever travel abandoned section of Hwy 87? - convertedtiger
Almost the entire stretch of marsh along the road is the McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge. You can drive about a mile down old 87 from the Sabine Pass/ Sea Rim side and do some good walk in hunts for geese. It's a long walk through cordgrass but it can be very productive at times. The fact that i...

re: Shelter at Home program: a scam? - convertedtiger
Yeah I went through three gallons of Boracare with mold care and a case of Microban Germicidal and I still feel slightly unclean in the house. It's all in my head, I know. We just,finally, got our permit and inspection to rebuild last weekend. We have the new split system sitting in the house and a...

re: Shelter at Home program: a scam? - convertedtiger
The ONLY reason we agreed to anything was because they said they would "clean and sanitize" the house. After the filth that was flowing through our home, I'll take whatever extra cleaning we can get. We have already pressure washed everything. Treated with Microban as well as Boracare but you neve...
