re: Gutters: DIY or Nah? - MikeD
It won't be $3500 for sure. Let a pro do it. It's not high tech so people can do it, but they have the tools to do it correctly. At one point, we got quotes for the high tech gutter shields, which were crazy high like $8k. Total replacement would have been much less. ...

[quote]I have this thing for about the same size yard. The tub is 32 ounces I believe, and it sprays at 2 gallons per minute. You can adjust the ounces per gallon you want to spray also.[/quote] Interesting. Would something like this be compatible with granulars like Prodiamine 65 or Celsius? M...

re: Dale Earnhardt was killed 19 years ago today. The final accident report - MikeD
[quote]I think they calculated he went from traveling at 165-170mph to 43mph in a fraction of a second.[/quote] His speed decreased by 43 mph in a fraction of a second. Still a huge number. Similar force to being parked and hit head on by a car going 90 mph....

MLBPA and Astros Players - MikeD

[quote]Sad day it was but that's a long arse & expensive report when the simple truth is he hit a wall at 190 mph in a car. The outcome of that event should be rather obvious.[/quote] To be fair, the last 130 pages were the CV’s of the people who built the report. Re: obvious outcome... Dale Earn...

[quote]I disagree. You aren’t born needing caffeine, tobacco, cocaine, etc.[/quote] Sorry didn't mean to imply some people are born addicts to specific substances.
