re: How many states have you been to?... - TU Rob
My kids are learning about the states this week, and I counted 26 that I have definitely been to, meaning at least staying a night there and not just passing through. I think it is closer to 30-32 if we count driving through. But I can't remember the route we took from NYC back to ATL on a MLB tri...

re: Anyone else lost the motivation to workout with gyms being closed? - TU Rob
I've been taking the kids to ride bikes. Well, mainly my daughter. Not a real workout ride for me, but I have my toddler strapped into his seat on the back of my bike, so I'm hauling an extra 30 lbs and the neighborhood we ride in does have some hills. Not doing much resistance training besides t...

[quote]I would put anything in a starter pot outside as soon as they sprouted. They will also grow much faster in the sunlight. Never transplanted beans, but i would start putting them outside a little bit at a time and see how they take it, and increasing duration each day. [/quote] Thanks...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - TU Rob
[quote]For example a tomato plant that is ready to be transplanted outside, I would harden off for about a week. Starting at like 30 minutes on the first day, gradually increasing to a few hours at a time around the 7th day. Are you not able to just let them sprout outside?[/quote] I was main...

re: Need advice on Laminate flooring - TU Rob
Look at cork as well. I found some discontinued pattern at Lowe’s and bought all they had. It was more than we needed but I wanted to make sure we had plenty. We just did a 14x12 room with it, but it’s extremely forgiving for water and it was going in a bathroom. I had done the demo work in there an...

re: Shopping tires - TU Rob
I got really good mileage and even wear on a set of BFG Rugged Terrains. Similar to their AT. Bought a set of 4, and when the time came for the first rotation I bought a 5th since I have a Jeep and the spare was easy to rotate in. Put them on around 40k miles and when I sold it at 72k miles still...

re: How many of you baws are gonna be daddies (again) in 9 months? - TU Rob
Wife had an ablation and her tubes tied in December. After the third (a surprise) one of us needed to get snipped. So no more for us but we can definitely practice how it happens. But being stuck in a house all day with three kids kills the mood most nights....

re: 2020 Garden Thread - TU Rob
My seedlings are taking off. Beans have sprouted, saw a couple of Okra taking off, and even a cucumber. Still waiting on squash and tomatoes to sprout. I know I got a late start but we have a long growing season here. I went ahead and tilled two areas on Saturday afternoon. My old existing gard...

re: A/C question-definitely refrigerant problem....right? - TU Rob
[quote]Good sized crawl space under our house-I can walk bent over through half of it, and the unit is just about 10 feet from the door.[/quote] That's good. Our old house where I grew up had a crawl space, mainly to access plumbing, and it was maybe 3 feet high at the tallest spot by the little...

re: A/C question-definitely refrigerant problem....right? - TU Rob
[quote]I'll check the inside (under the house) one for sure. [/quote] Ouch. Bad spot for one. My upstairs unit is in the attic and the return register on the wall. I can pop that open and check the coils. My downstairs unit air handler is in the basement. I can’t think of anywhere I’ve lived...

re: A/C question-definitely refrigerant problem....right? - TU Rob
Is it freezing up on the inside unit? Mine would freeze up there and not the outside units. Turn the blower on but the air off, and check the return where the coils are and hit them with a blow dryer if they're freezing up. Definitely sounds like a slow leak. Get it checked out and recharged. ...

re: Refrigerator help - TU Rob
Probably a defrost timer. Happened to my old one. The ice started melting and dripping out of the door. We emptied it out, and the fridge was still working, but the freezer side wasn't. Couple of days later it starts working again. We ended up getting a new one later on, but it was the defrost t...

re: For those WFH with families - TU Rob
[quote]My office is in my attic, so the only room on that floor. Sign on my door to knock.[/quote] Similar. There’s a playroom/den on our second floor between the kids bedroom. I’m set up in there. I usually get a couple of hours in the morning before they wake up so I’ll take a short break when ...

[quote]This is true just because most of the houses in Mountain Brook are huge compared to the smaller cottages in Homewood[/quote] Yep. We bought in Vestavia 12-13 years ago. Market was down. But even with that, the prices in Homewood were sky high for what you got. I'm talking like 1/10 of ...
