    Tin snips would get through aluminum siding, too. You also could bend it (by gloved hands) into lengths you could carry to the boulevard. I would put minimal energy into it. It will disappear quickly.

    "Racist" is a very loaded word, and like most loaded things (guns, trucks, potatoes, etc.) it should be deployed carefully. In a few instances in the article, I think the author would have better...

    As I read these posts, I kept thinking that I've learned "pain is not a stopping point".

    At this point I see nothing to lose with sitting down with DH and, as Float On said, putting things in "I"...

    We're kind of lucky in that most of the families involved are small and there are enough "outlaws" that gatherings are not filled with people we only see at holidays. But there still is a draw toward...

    Of course, we don't know any more about the incident than Yppej wrote. But I don't know as an individual mistake should have become a "team learning" opportunity. I spent far too long in business...

    I have some friends who have their retirement "points" but are unsure when they will retire. They say their retirement date is "TBD": "Three Bad Days" (in a row). :)

    Congratulations again, RR!

    Sometimes a little "blindness" is not a bad thing.

    As a guy, I have far more latitude AFA what's "in style". But that failure (^^^) is why I prefer to go almost anywhere rather than Goodwill for clothes. I know finding sizes on a garment takes far...

    Yes, take the picture. You can always decide later that you don't want it, but once the building is gone, the opportunity is as well.
