re: Need a recommendation for a beard trimmer... - gumbo2176 on 6/26/19 at 3:05 pm
Almost any trimmer like Oster or Wahl will do the trick, but it's best to get the trimmer with the different size cutting head adaptors to trim it to the length you like....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Bank Fishing - gumbo2176 on 6/26/19 at 2:52 pm
What Captain Ray said. I fish the Mississippi River around the N.O. area and as far down as Lower St. Bernard Parish. Lately I've found that earthworms work best for bait. I've also take out fresh shrimp market bait, blood baits like beef melt, beef liver, chicken gizzards and hearts and ...

re: How often do you guys get your AC unit cleaned and serviced? - gumbo2176 on 6/24/19 at 1:39 pm
I do my own cleaning no less than once a year for the outside condensing unit. Those aluminum fins can get clogged up with dirt, lawn clippings, pet hair etc. so cleaning that helps the unit perform better. I make sure to change out my interior air filter at least once a month and that goes a l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Bonus Room - gumbo2176 on 6/24/19 at 12:49 pm
Definitely insulate well. A single 220 unit in the 18K BTU range should cool that space off nicely. I have a 24K BTU unit in my ground floor man cave that is 850 sq. ft. and it cools it off set at 72 when I'm using it in the summer months. For heat, I have a stand alone gas heater that look...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Finished or unfinished cabinets? - gumbo2176 on 6/24/19 at 7:51 am
How much is your time worth? Finishing cabinets, though not hard, is a bit time consuming. If painting, you'll need a primer coat, sand that down, then probably 2 top coats to make them look nice and uniform in color. If staining and clear coating, it's a bit more work. I would not stain...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: First war movie you watched? - gumbo2176 on 6/23/19 at 9:24 am
Grew up in the 50's, so war movies were all over the TV and big screen. I really can't say which one was the very first to be honest because I got a pretty steady diet of them. Between war movies and westerns, that was what dominated theaters and TV in the 50's....
