re: WebEx Question - TU Rob
There has to be, because some of the ones I've joined for work only have a dial-in option for audio. Others have allowed computer audio to be used. I typically use my Airpods connected to my laptop, but the ones I had to dial in to for audio I had to use the phone....

re: What is the biggest freebie you have been given because of a mistake? - TU Rob
Not really a mistake, more like stupidity on Amazon for shipping a large item through the postal service last fall. We got a new bed, and instead of a king mattress, we ordered a pair of the Twin XL memory foam mattresses. It was supposed to be delivered on a Saturday. They left a notice on the d...

re: question about car financing - TU Rob
Depends on the dealership. I've had to show recent bank statements, as well as 4-6 pay periods of paystubs. They just matched up the direct deposits on the bank statement with the stubs and they checked a box they had verified income. Others, they ran credit, asked what we made, and went on with ...

re: Best cleaner for floor of shower? - TU Rob
Get a spray bottle from the dollar store or Walmart, put a good squeeze or two of Dawn in it, then fill it about 2/3 full with white vineger. Get the cleaning vinegar, as it is stronger than normal. Fill to the top with water as hot as your faucet gets, and shake it all up after putting the spray ...

re: Roux question (half butter half oil) for recipes - TU Rob
[quote]My wife does half Butter and half Canola Oil for her roux.[/quote] Kerrygold has a butter with canola oil in the little tubs now. I've used it several times. It spreads better than pure butter, and is great for making a grilled cheese or on a Panini. I'd imagine it would be good for a r...

re: How to size HVAC for home addition. Is my current model big enough? - TU Rob
Is this a basement garage, or is it on the main level and exposed more to outside walls? We have a 4 ton new unit we had installed last fall, similar size house but with 8 foot ceilings. There are a couple of vents in the ductwork in the basement/garage, but it typically stays much cooler than the...

re: Non-apple wireless Airpods for iphone - suggestions - TU Rob
My daughter really wanted airpods, but being younger, we didn't want her to lose $130 airpods. She ordered some cheap ones from Amazon, and after she showed she was able to take care of them for several months, one of her grandmother's got her a set for her birthday last year. She hated the knocko...
