• How to fix my toilet?

    So our landlord literally said we have to fix the toilet ourselves and not to call a plumber, he won't call a plumber either. We've ran a 50 ft snake with nothing coming out, and have killed ourselves plunging but our toilet won't flush. You flush and it fills and the water level slowly goes down but... show more
    So our landlord literally said we have to fix the toilet ourselves and not to call a plumber, he won't call a plumber either. We've ran a 50 ft snake with nothing coming out, and have killed ourselves plunging but our toilet won't flush. You flush and it fills and the water level slowly goes down but doesn't fully drain or flush. We've replaced everything in the tank with no luck. What else could it be? There is no basement.

    With the horrors in Rotherham are people still catching taxis by them unmentionables or would customers ask English drivers who will get them home safely.. Meanwhile I'll be indoors with a nice roaring log fire watching Ruth Rendells.

    Give me a good cup of Assamese and Ruth Rendell by the roaring log and I am happy as a pig rolling around in mud. But say here, are many spring bucks are going out tonight on wild parties of drink, drugs, sehexs and other vices which did not exist in my days. My nieces children have been out every night this past month and coming home late where do these young uns get the energy from? Both are at university. .I fear for them both and told the girl not to catch a taxi from those unmentionables cough Rotherham cough Rochdale. But do they listen? They've been infected at university by left wing communist beliefs and think I am outdated and how these unmentionables are nice. Haw haw. Bless all who go out tonight and stay safe and call an English taxi. I even doze off in the afternoon after dinner. So what are you all up to eh?

  • How do I seal wormwood?

    I have a table with some beetle damage or wormwood holes. I don’t want to get rid of the way they look, but I also don’t want a hole in the table where food and such can get stuck. Is there a clear filler or something I can cover them with that will hold a stain?

  • Can I do this to walk up in an attic?

    Best answer: If the insulation is on the floor, the attic isn't insulated - the living space below it is. Compressing the fiberglass insulation a little won't hurt the drywall ceiling underneath it. But it will reduce the effectiveness of the insulation. I hope those floor joists are bigger than 2x4: 2x10 would be... show more
    Best answer: If the insulation is on the floor, the attic isn't insulated - the living space below it is.

    Compressing the fiberglass insulation a little won't hurt the drywall ceiling underneath it. But it will reduce the effectiveness of the insulation.

    I hope those floor joists are bigger than 2x4: 2x10 would be more typical.

    Having said all that: Yes, it's OK to floor part of your attic that way to make it more usable for storage.

  • Can a handyman patch a hole that was in a stud?

    Best answer: ya. what you do is add a "sister" [twin] to the stud ... with plenty of construction adhesive and screws or clamps to hold it together while the glue sets up overnight. does sort of require removing some of the wallboard

    plastic wood would look ok, but isn't near strong enough to bear much load

    I received a dryer that has been sitting for two years. I changed the power cord from a three prong to a four prong. I turned it on and it worked great. But it smells like it s burning. The lint trap is clean but not sure if the inside is clear of lint. I do not see any Sparks or smoke coming from the back of the power cord. I looked at all YouTube videos on the power cord installation and they all said the same thing on the installation. What else could it be? I let it run for a minute but when the smell came I turned it off. Should I let it run more???
