[quote]experience tremendous guilt after eating?[/quote] I actually don’t….no guilt from eating fast food at all. I do however, feel a little guilty when I notice myself putting on some weight, because I know I have been eating too much crap. I have never been one to worry about a problem, unle...

[quote]Would it be as simple as spraying water to rinse off the acid? It’s a strong chemical smell. Not necessarily sour, but definitely doesn’t smell good[/quote] The coil itself should rinse itself due to condensation, but there may be some residue on the inside of the air handler housing. I w...

Prepare to be shocked when you price them. I like a rain-type showerhead. When I bought mine, I shopped Wayfair and while I was pondering on it an “open box” model came up so I was able to save about 50%....

[quote]They don’t nest in my property but they continue to spend time here and sting people. [/quote] Well, in that case I would declare war on their asses. I understand that they like decaying meat so I would probably try to attract them with some meat and poison them. Gotta be careful of pets...

If they aren’t on your property, I wouldn’t worry about them…if they are on your property, you will find them when you cut grass. Don’t waste your Talstar. When you eventually find the hole, slip up on it at night and pour a coke bottle full of gasoline in it. You will never see another one ...

I believe it was the lsu alumni association that was giving the blue dog by George rodrigue as a gift for a contribution one time. Those prints are now worth many thousands of dollars each. I will never again pass on such an opportunity. Just paid my hundy!...

I don’t know what a bitter smell would be. However, if it is a sour smell, that is probably the acid they used to clean the coil. ...

[quote]I wonder how “brake tag” became a thing.[/quote] Car/truck brakes used to be pretty shitty. Back then they actually had to drive your car to test the brakes. That’s why some places still don’t do inspections when it is raining....

That sounds like more of a clay to me. Just let it dry ont a bit and see of it crumbles at all. My area in central Mississippi has stiff bentonite clay and it will grow grass pretty well if I keep it watered....

Yep….just today I was sitting in my office thinking about retiring. I looked around me and was looking at old stuff that I have in my office and still use. A desk clock and business card holder that I got when I graduated from LSU, the coffee cup that I got my first day at work. 29 years passe...
