  • A neighbor put up a fence. No problem. I decided to landscape my yard and plant privacy bushes and some roses in front of the fence?

    to make my yard more attractive and to hide the fence somewhat as well. The plants are well on my side of the property to allow space for growing.

    to make my yard more attractive and to hide the fence somewhat as well. The plants are well on my side of the property to allow space for growing. Problem is (really not a problem I guess), the husband neighbor comes flying out of the house when he sees me positioning the plants and tells me HE was going to plant some privacy bushes and I'm saving him some money! What?? He put up the fence (5 Ft.), snf I could care less-it was fine. What do you make of this? This guy kind of twitched his mouth and acted indignant when he said that to me. If he planted some bushes-it wouldn't have stopped me from landscaping my yard. This neighbor had his house built and moved in about a year ago. I didn't say anything when he said that-just smiled. But the more I thought about the way he acted and what he said-I feel he was out of line. What do you think?

  • If a tornado hits, what would you take with you?

    I would take my dog with me, along with my family ;D Living things are my first priority. Maybe i'll grab packets of seeds of multiple fruits/ vegetables we have in our kitchen, to harvest and the survival water filter thing :))

  • Can you use a hammer drill for driving screws?

    I want a hammer drill because the walls of our house is concrete and I want to place small cabinets. Do hammer drills drive screws as well? If not, so I should buy a hammer drill and an impact drill as well? Or is there a two in 1 power tool that does that?

  • While working yesterday I fainted twice from heat and threw up on the worksite. My supervisors still forced me to work why?

    Best answer: Sounds like dehydration from the heat. Can be very dangerous, if you don't stop and take care of
    yourself. It's not just water, but salt replenishment that you need. 10K and Gatorade have electrolytes.
    No job is worth your life. Your supervisor is just ignorant.

  • How to save rusty pan?

    Best answer: If you insist on using this pan, 1) TAke the rest of the non-stick coating off using good steel wool. Take off all of it, as you don't want flakes of that in your food. 2) THen burnish the entire surface of the cooking pan (in and out) to remove the rust. Again, all of it.

You don't want that in your food either.

    This should work well for you, but I encourage you to get a new pan as soon as you're able, even if you head to the Goodwill store and pick up a good used one.

  • Is it time that I should get a new bedsheet?

    I've had this for about 10+ years now because the sheet tends to peel off the mattress when i am on my bed. I was thinking of getting a sky blue bed sheet, but where would I get a color like that? Also my bed is a twin sized. Is there any store where you can get any bed sheet you want?

  • How do I get a beyond disgusting house clean?

    A way to keep a clean house is easier than people think. I was far from being a slob and there was no food ever taken outside of the kitchen, but I was a clutter bug. I put the house on the market and got rid of a lot of things and realized that keeping a house clean at all times is very easy. All you have to really do is clean, get rid of things you do not want or use and keep it that way by always cleaning up after yourself the moment you leave the room. It really is as simple as that.

    HOWEVER, in order for that to work, everyone in the house has be on board to pick up after themselves. Otherwise, the place will get messy within days and you will be back where you started from in no time flat.

    There's a current running through the pipes in my building. The source is not from my apartment, but somewhere else. Complaints have yielded no results and I am tired of getting shocked while I shower or wash hands. Is there a way to make it so I don't get shocked? Like some sort of shock proof tape on the tap handles or a tap that doesn't conduct electricity or something? Getting the issue fixed at the source isn't going to happen clearly, so I need to safeguard myself at the least.

  • Why do ALL American women have this on their cars?

    I'm referring to the first, middle, and last name initials on these funky letter type of stickers plastered on the backs of their cars? Even clothing and accessories? I took my gf stickers off of her car last night and told her next time if I see that garbage on her car I would break it off with her.
