I had a Providian credit card for some time. They were recently purchased by Washington Mututal. It's the card I used for many of my home renovations including my new windows.
As luck would have it due to either an oversight on my part or thinking I'd clicked 'submit' on an online payment I ended up late on my payment by less than 6 days one month. The next month I was billed a $40 late fee which I paid without worrying about it.
Soon I hope to redo the front porch. It reaches the full width of the house and is covered. Currently there's only lighting above the front door and I'm looking for options. Above the front door is a typical craftsman style porch light from Lowe's. I have another identical light still in the box, but I don't think I could easily make them symmetrical without having to move the one from above the door. I'm considering a lamp post on each end of the porch, but what other options should I consider to increase lighting on the porch?
Well, they barely fit. I just now got around to taking a panorama of them, so here ya go. Both ends of the couch recline, and kind of slide out so they don't hit the wall:
And for those wondering how bad it was before I bought these:
We're having an 'open-house' at work this week, and never have finished decorating the entire office. As Carla and I were passing Grand Home Furnishings today, I thought 'Hey, they have silk plants!'
Boy was that a mistake. Especially since I just finished paying off the bed we bought last year and my 'zero interest zero payments' credit card was wide open, screaming for attention. So of course Carla mentions 'I need a rocker-recliner for when the new baby comes.' Oh, here it goes.
Salesperson: 'Is this your first?'
And not due to Easter. I've been waiting for it to get warm before diving into some of the things that will require an open window (such as drywall dust.)
Seems we're due 1 to 3 inches of snow this weekend.
It was 80 last week. Now it's 32. Where's your global warming NOW, Al Gore?!? imported-277
While reading the reader feedback in the 'Charleston Daily Mail' I came across this gem of a quote:
'I don't have a problem with responsible riders and their ATVs. It's the unlicensed adults and children driving them on state highways as their primary mode of transportation. If you don't think it's happening, take a drive through rural areas of the state. I've watched adults pick their kids up at school on ATVs.'
Last night as the snow was rolling in, I made a prediction. The weather channel was saying 4 to 6 inches of snow. I predicted 3.
We got 7 - and most of it was in my closed-in porch. Just goes to show that in the spring I really do need to get that porch rebuilt.
I was looking through my logs at what search terms brought people to my site. This question appeared in the logs in one form or another a couple of times.
I hope people come to realize, the answer is a resounding NO. It is not hard, however, to install a proper ceiling fan brace in the ceiling.
The best option I know of is to install a brace behind the lathe, that extends across the gap like so:
In a short break from renovations, I'd like to point out to fellow bloggers about a new law that affects you. You may remember that bloggers are journalists, too or so the courts told Apple.
Now it turns out if you are a journalist, you can be tried by a military court instead of by a jury of your peers. Oh, and the friends of mine who are government employees - same rules apply.
I think that's the earliest I've ever taken down the lights. It was upper 50's and calm today, which is a rarity anytime after Halloween, so I got all the kids together and we took all the lights off the house. If you recall, last year I took them off in... November. imported-216
