I have neither and seem to be ok. Across the street they trenched the entire perimeter and added French drains to a sump with a pump. I don’t see why you should need to do the middle. ...

My wife loves ours. I like it also. Had it since December. It is comfortable, but gets a bit messy looking and you need to fluff/fix the side and back cushions occasionally. Never pay full price. Ours was 30% off plus an additional 5% off because my wife is a teacher. We haven’t washed the ...

The girl slid over. Feet weren’t set. It was the right call. I am sitting next to a D1 women’s basketball ref and he says it was the right call. Link of video added: [link=(https://x.com/jomboymedia/status/1776452197527507201?s=46)]LINK[/link]...

UConn is a really well coached team. When I watched their practice at the final four last year, they were clearly the best coached, most focused team there. I suspect they will be again this year. ...
