    3310 was a reused model number, too, and, like the 2720, was a recreation of the original design with modern updates (color screen, etc.). The mobile phone equivalent of a BMW Mini or current FIAT...

    I had one of the retro Nokia 3310s (actually a candy bar phone) for couple of years. Picked it up cheap and we used it when we couldn't find our own phone quickly enough. It felt great in-hand, it...

    Happy, you might want to check out the Greatcall Jitterbug Smart2. It's the Jitterbug of smartphones, with simplified menus, bigger fonts, and a large-ish screen. At $75 right now (Mother's Day sale;...

    They are and I've seen pictures of some that I found quite attractive.

    But there are drawbacks to using containers for housing. They were never designed for habitation, so whatever has to be done...

    Most of the nice prefab housing DW and I have looked at comes up at a higher construction price per square foot than stick-built. Maybe it's a better-built home when all is said and done, but,...

    The devil is in the details. Even defining a "foundation" can be problematic. I think most of us would agree that a poured concrete basement is a permanent foundation. But would wood pilings in a...

    Two things:

    For many years, pretty much all manufactured homes were travel trailers or their close relatives, mobile homes. These were not built to even residential construction code standards:...

    Nice! I like the bigger one (plus the fact that it can be built on a basement). Just a little more space between the -- umm -- spaces. Might allow for a little more flexibility a few years down the...

    I've been using electric (corded) lawnmowers for more than a decade now. Small gasoline engines and I just don't get along >:( and I find most battery-powered tools are either not up to the job I...

    What SQ has run into is similar to what I've run into -- some financial institutions just don't "talk" to financial tracking apps. I use SEE Finance on my Mac and our credit union does not link...

    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...
