I had the same reaction. I'd never used, or even noticed, the Calendar button before! Who are all those people?

when I played rugby union in the UK we were taught to tackle at the knees - if they can't move their legs then they go down.

We also didn't have the advantage of all the padding/helmets, best we had was a gumshield, "privates box" and sometimes shin guards.

Gonna be an interesting last 2 weeks, anyone from me, twos, cc could pull of the win. I think that is the closest it has been for a couple of years.... crazy

So week 16 sees NO thursday game, 2 on saturday.

Once again the greedy NFL will only be showing the saturday games on nflnetwork only - I for one will not pay them for that "privilege" crazy

Fitting MP had her best week and the win on her birthday (not that I am biased). laugh

Good luck everyone cool

And still going on after the election attacking Mueller and Comey.

A hoax?



For some who seemed to love counting Obama's golfing trips...
And in rebuttal of Trumps TWEETS on spending so much
of the taxpayers money on the Witch Hunt ! HOAX !

Quote
Trump has spent 83 million taxpayer dollars on golf,
while the Mueller investigation has only cost $25 million.

Reuters reported on the latest DOJ data on the cost of the Mueller probe,
The U.S. Justice Department has spent a total of $25.2 million on
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether
President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia from
its start in May 2017 through September 2018

As CNBC reported, Mueller has turned a profit from the investigation,
“Mueller may have also paid for his own investigation. That’s because,
as part of his plea deal with the special counsel, Manafort agreed to
forfeit real estate and cash estimated to be
worth between $42 million and $46 million.”

I believe you will have to remove it from on the roof, and yes you will have to close up the hole and patch the shingles in over it.

What did these instructions say?



Mine called for two studs (I believe most do), but most of the time I don't have that luxury due to positioning, and with most mounts, I will get one stud, then use two or more nylon toggle anchors on top row, and not worry about it. None have come down. ....... but a 52" set on a telescoping swivel mount that weighs 50lbs., I not going to rely on that system.

Were it a non telescoping flat mount, I would have done it with one stud. No worry.

They still call em hay rides, but insurance is much lower using what's pictured.

Talked to the farm owner yesterday. He says trailer brakes started to grab in the mud/gravel drive after the 1st hill,
wasn't sure he'd be able to make the right turn but somehow it all worked out.

I buy used vans around 100k miles. We normally change all belts , hoses and brake lines. Cheaper to do in one shot than a break down loss time.

Welcome to HW.

All of those buttons I've ever seen are really little air pumps that go down to an actual switch. The switch plugs into the outlet, and your disposal plugs into the switch.

I'm wondering if someone swapped the dishwasher and disposal plugs by mistake?

Trying it again to see if it shows a reply was provided:

I bought this HDTV Digital amplified antenna for one of my TV's that's not connected to cable and it works great. I put it on the wall instead of on a window and still get great reception for local stations along with lots of others. Mine's black but I'm pretty sure they come in white as well. Looks like from the link that there's also an upgraded model now too.

Looks like the HTML code for the link didn't copy over

You may have Heat Traps installed. They're basically like a check valve with balls inside that prevent the hot water from creeping back up into the cold inlet piping. They can rattle and make for very annoying noise. I actually removed mine and eliminated the noise. Perhaps a bit less energy efficient but peace from noise.

The guy at State sounds like it's his 1st day on the job and still figuring out what a water heater actually is eek. I too have a hard time believing that your heater has an anode that's 29" in length since anodes are pretty much a standard size . There's a few places you may be able to get your exact information at. Going here to Sears Parts Direct you'll need the entire model number to find the parts you'll need as there are numberous GS650's to choose from.

You can also go to Water Heater Rescue and get help by buying their Anode Buying guide for $30.00. You can see here that they sell the aluminum rods and they are 44-48" long depending on if it's solid or flex. Keep in mind that you'll need a flex rod if you don't have a lot of overhead height to get a new solid one installed. It also shows a picture indicating that an aluminum rod usually has a flat hex head where the magnesium rods have a bump.
