We've had a ton of rain recently, and I've noticed a number of sugar ant colonies outside of the house moving in vertical columns along exterior walls and around the base of the porch. Today, I've found two places inside the house where sugar ants are wondering around (kitchen and bathroom). I place...

re: Financial Life Skills - Developing a class - RickAstley

re: Buying Land from Family - Advice Thread - RickAstley
This would be a luxury expense for me. The land is not something I want to lose, which is probably impairing good judgment on my part. I've got enough money to buy a portion of the land and be comfortable financially. Buying the whole property will really stretch me and my wife financially for th...

A family member is looking to sell some property that is primarily used by friends and family for hunting and fishing. It has been in the family for 50 years, and the news is sudden.

re: Philip Hue Lights and Strips - RickAstley
I own 4 of the white ambiance lights and I have no complaints about the bulbs themselves. I would just ante up and get the color bulbs instead if I had to do it again.

Smart Home - Guest Control - RickAstley
What are some suggestions for handing the keys to guests for controlling lights and other devices in the house? Are old phones or cheap tables good options? I'd like to be able to let guests control lights in rooms that they will be using such as living room, kitchen and guest room. ...
