re: Porter cable power tools - TU Rob
I have the drill/driver combo. 20V lithium brushless and they’re beasts. I swore by corded drills for years but after using these a good bit for the past couple of years, I’m a convert. Holds a charge forever and recharged quickly. I’ve used them for all sorts of projects and plan on redoing my deck...

re: Anyone had a tooth taken out - TU Rob
Saline rinses often will help it from dry socket. Warm but not hot. Every couple of hours just use it like mouthwash. I had 4 pulled as a teenager to alleviate crowding issues for braces. Couple of days later and you’ll be fine. Take Advil if you can stand the pain instead of pain pills. ...

re: Tattling in the work place - TU Rob
[quote] So watching people come in and out of the lobby all day is efficient? People take breaks at different hours, and lunch at different times. In order for this guy to monitor all that, it's basically all he is doing.[/quote] I actually had a former boss who did that. I’m thinking, you’re one...

re: Would you fire an employee purposely clocking in five minutes early? - TU Rob
Time based pay is usually set up on quarter of an hour and you need to be clocked in for 8 of the 15 to get paid for it. Depends on how the pay is calculated. Is it done in those increments or is it a total of minutes per day? And the work setting matters. 5 minutes early at a plant or something sim...

re: Is doing Spin class 3 times a week good enough? - TU Rob
To whoever said eat for fuel, totally agree. Whenever I get into running a good bit, I can only do it when I eat right. If I eat like crap the night before my next days run is horrible. To expand a bit more on the exercise, think of weight lifting and machines differently. Don’t go about it as h...

re: Looking at a promotion in Birmingham- Need insight. - TU Rob
Where is the office? Downtown is nice now. I’ve worked downtown for about 6.5 years. It is trending up. I live in Vestavia and my commute isn’t bad. Maybe 15-20 minutes. Mine takes longer during school because I drop mine off but Hoover and other suburbs have busses. Hoover, Homewood, Vestavia, and ...

re: Vacation Time-All at once, or in small chunks? - TU Rob
I have 4 weeks vacation and 12 sick days. I rarely use the sick time. A few days here and there if one of the kids are sick and need to stay home from school. But my wife only works part time so that’s only if it is one of her scheduled work days. I generally take a week in the summer every year...

[quote]Thigh and liver[/quote] My crowning culinary achievement thus far is getting my daughter to love thighs. She liked legs as most kids do, but if I grab a Publix fried chicken meal I have to snag one of the thighs before she gets there. She will eat both legs and the other thigh. Sometimes a...
