  • Buying a stove … which is the best .. Samsung or Kitchenaide ?

    Best answer: According to the ratings Samsung is more reliable, but frankly there's not a lot that can go wrong in a conventional electric stove. And what can go wrong is pretty easy to fix.

    But since you're asking the question I'm going to come down on the side of Kitchenaid,reliability ratings notwithstanding. I'm a handyman so fixing an appliance is nothing to me. They're all pretty easy. And I have several Kitchenaid overarm mixers, easily the best small appliance I have ever owned.

  • Which is true? that you should keep all leaves off a lawn while new seed is germinating or leaves help the seeds germinate?

    Best answer: I think the leaves would initially help. They would keep the seeds damp. If they are small leaves, then the grass might grow between and around them. However, large leaves would block the light and the grass would die.

  • How to install steel wall mounted mailbox on brick wall?

    Best answer: If you want it sturdy drill holes with a masonry bit and inbstall lead plugs made for this purpose. Then the right size screws go right into the lead. It works by expansion. I once installed a heavy a/c with these slugs, so it was sturdy.

Planted new grass and I look up, she's there asking what am I doing? Duh! Planting grass seed. Guess what-the next day she is and even got lawn care. Planted new bushes and flowers. She does the same. You get the idea. I could go on and on. There's a lot more. She always asks where I bought things if I got something new. OK-the thing is that now I truthfully find it annoying- like a tick I want to pluck off me. A parasite!! Why in the world do people act like this and they aren't even embarrassed about it? I would be. I would think others would thing I'm a moron with no brain of my own. Ideas-have you experienced this?

  • How much full sun can hydrangeas tolerate?

    Best answer: That doesn't sound like too much sun, but it can be a sign of lack of water. Try watering them deeply and regularly and see what that does. You could also try some fertiliser.

    Best answer: That doesn't sound like too much sun, but it can be a sign of lack of water. Try watering them deeply and regularly and see what that does. You could also try some fertiliser.


    Young plants do have small root systems and need all the help they can get. As they get older they do indeed become more resilient.

    It also depends on the climate wherever you are. Her we are deep into autumn and the hydrangeas are stopping. We tend to leave the dead heads on over winter to help protect the new shoots forming underneath from frost and only deadhead in spring when the frosts have gone and the plants are back in full swing again.

Add a post on the other side of the tree. Fit the rails and boards around the tree that can be lost without knocking over the fence. You should be able to space it so as to not have the confinement problem. The best solution is to cut down the tree unless it is really special.

    Best answer: Think about what your plans are. You will be moving on soon, and may want to take some of it with you. So furniture is out. Go to Lowes or Home Depot and look at concrete blocks and plywood. You can make everything you need from that. What you do is figure out what furniture you want, like a bed, table, shelves, and have them cut up your plywood to the widths and lengths you want. Put your mattress on the floor and get rid of the bunk bed. If you want to elevate it, concrete blocks and plywood with the mattress on the plywood. Same for a table, blocks for legs and plywood for the top. Stack blocks with plywood cut to shelf widths. Go to the furniture stores and ask them if they have a nice overstuffed damaged chair. Or Goodwill. You don't care what it looks like, so some big screws and a couple pieces of plywood will have it functioning like a new one. Just use the see-through plastic boxes for drawers. You should be able to do this easy on your budget. Don't buy any furniture until you own a house to put it in.

    Best answer: the real estate agent is suggesting you paint your walls for 2 main reasons,
    1) dark and bold colors can make a room seem smaller and neutral colors can make it feel larger.
    2) because they think future buyers wont like dark & bold colors when looking for a house and that having neutral colors throughout your house will help potential buyers envision their things in the house easier.
    while this can be true its not always the case, most good homebuyers know a wall can be easily painted and are looking for more important features in your house then paint colors on the wall. but it may help for some.

    I would suggest re-painting the burgundy wall in the one room, and the multi-color room and leaving the rest.
    when picking a color pick something neutral & light, but that also matches with the carpet & trim work of the room.
    I suggest using a good quality white primer over the dark colors then after that dries completely do the final finished colors.

    as for the gloss, semi-gloss, satin, flat: choices. it comes down to easy of cleaning & wiping down the walls.
    gloss is the easiest to clean & flat almost impossible.
    kitchens should use gloss for easy of cleaning. hallways and kids rooms semi-gloss(still easy to clean, but not as shiny) then I personally prefer the satin for any areas you don't have to worry about dirty fingerprints leaving smudges on the walls.


    listen to the real estate agent to a point, just remember they want the house as great as possible and don't care what it will cost you in time and material, they only care about the finished product looks like. I've seen real-estate agents suggest hugely expensive changes to make something look a tiny bit better that don't really add any value. they don't always care about you because any improvements may help them sell easier meaning they get the commission into their bank acct. but the expense to fix it comes out of your bank acct, not theirs.
    so don't blindly follow expensive suggestions they make.
