    Most of the winter, I hope our road clearing crews are as obsessive as yours are. St. Paul has a reputation metro-wide for doing the worst job at clearing streets. I admire their consistency.

    DW came up from the basement yesterday declaring that the washing machine no longer worked. She pulled on the switch to start and ... nothing. I figured it's been 17 years for that set and they...

    They're going to sand? If it snowed here on April 16 (where we get five feet of snow a year) they'd just wait the day or two it would take to melt. Unless they had to plow it. But they certainly...

    DW is much like SQ's DH (enough initials there? ;) ). I am fully convinced that, even if DW sees the mess, her brain spends zero cycles on interpreting the visual information. At 11 years into the...

    A lot depends on whether the opening is a stock size. For a standard dishwasher, it should be 24". So you could look for a base cabinet that would fit there and provide a door (and door swing) that...

    Our Case 1: We refaced the cabinets in our kitchen. The layout was fine (except the kitchen could be bigger so we could have more cabinets; it's 10x15) and most of it was pretty functional; it was...

    Keep up with the scheduled maintenance. Do what Toyota (or whoever) specifies. I always get a hoot out of old guys who remember their ol' '69 Chevy and recommend oil changes every 3,000 miles and...

    Interesting. I don't remember the Pilot correcting the lane departure, just informing. Then again, my very first car didn't even have power steering (neither did my second IIRC) so maybe I just...

    AFAIK lane departure in most cars is just a warning -- lights on the dash or a buzzer/beep or such (both of our cars are too old to have it but that's how it works on DD's Honda Pilot). I find it...

    I think that's been most of them for us. But, then, a few times they've been cars on the lot or showroom floor which had to be made ready for sale.

    For whatever reason, they've been popular at potlucks here for decades (not just DW's family). Then again, we're in the Midwest; we don't always do the fashionable thing. lol
