re: Let’s talk rubber mulch - TU Rob
It will move around and get where you don’t want it. But for small applications it is good. We had a townhouse with a tiny back yard. Couldn’t get grass to grow because of drainage issues. Finally decided to put a half dozen bags of rubber mulch down and some large stepping stones from the deck over...

re: What car head units allow connection to apps on phones? - TU Rob
Yeah I'm replying to myself again, but I learned last night you can control apps via Bluetooth. Not full functionality like switching between playlists or stations on Pandora/Spotify, but I had a quick stop to make on my way home. After that I connected BT for the first time, and it immediately st...

re: What car head units allow connection to apps on phones? - TU Rob
Only Apple maps and Spotify/Pandora/Podcasts at the same time. I can use Waze with the AppRadio on the pioneer app but couldn’t get Waze and Spotify at the same time. I think it is with the settings in the unit itself. ...

[quote]Can you use maps like Waze or Apple maps and listen to Spotify at the same time?[/quote] I know you can for apple maps. I’ll check on Waze tonight. I installed the pioneer app radio app on my iPhone last night and tried out waze but I just had the radio on. I’m not sure if it will play sou...

re: Vinyl truck seats - TU Rob

re: Anybody else get shafted on the cooler deal? - TU Rob
[quote] I thought the whole idea was great. I would have ordered one if I lived in BR, but I would never take time off work and pay for a hotel to pick up a cooler. order an rtic and have it delivered in 2 days.[/quote] Many I think ordered a size or two for themselves and then tacked on a few mo...

re: Anybody else get shafted on the cooler deal? - TU Rob
I got mine around Christmas when a poster from my city made a trip over. We had been bouncing emails around on one or two making a trip to pick up as many as they could and I got an offer from one guy going to pick up his. So I paid in August, received in December. ...

re: Banning the phone from the bathroom at work - TU Rob
[quote]Also, it pisses me off that we have a bunch of roaming squatters from other floors come use our restroom. Some days it’s hard to take a shite because there is a steady flow of guys from other floors using our bathroom all day. I really wish they’d put a passcode on it. [/quote] Floor by flo...

re: Having a wedding on a holiday weekend - TU Rob
[quote]If they RSVP no, that's fine. RSVP yes and no show, that's rude. RSVP no and then show up, you eat last[/quote] Last one I went to had placecards for everyone that had sent in their RSVP. Kind of awkward when this family of 4 shows up and is looking around, and then they realize the...

re: Having a wedding on a holiday weekend - TU Rob
[quote]Same for me but on the other end at 8/22...it's always the 1st week of school. Stinks, but we're not picky about the actual date, if we can celebrate it, big or small, a week or 2 before, that's just as good. More of that low maintenance stuff. [/quote] Yep. We've also missed the fir...
