I've been at this off and on for 25 years and have seen people washing their bikes at the track since day one, fast riders and slow riders. And I don't think someone washing their bike at the track means they are not there to win. I've seen plenty of ... more »

I have (2) 30 gallon tanks just like that (they are for RV's) but the tap holes on mine (they look like the blue ones in the picture) don't let enough water flow to keep my gas pressure washer fed. It works great with my electric power washer though, ... more »

Wow, those Tesla's are quick. It looks like in the race against the sedan, the Lambo may have jumped the light.

I got both of these as two separate wedding party gifts about 17-18 years ago. I've probably had the bottom one in my pocket in all but a handful of days since, it needs a good sharpening now. A few times I have left it in another pair of shorts ... more »

With a paid off house the credit thing shouldn't be an issue, if I were you I'd never borrow money again. I paid my house off quite a few years ago and also froze my credit and haven't looked back since. By far the best thing I've ever done financially, ... more »

As far as I know, no bank (around here anyway) will loan money to an LLC or Corporation (no matter how long in business, definitely not a start up) without an officer signing a personal guarantee. I built spec homes for many years and they even made ... more »

Usually we use shoe moulding (1/2" thick x 3/4" tall) that matches the floor or is painted white around the whole room and then run a piece in front of a door if needed. Since your door only sticks up 5/8" you could lay it flat. The manufacturer of your ... more »

That's just what that particular designer wanted to hide the hood venting and the homeowner didn't want to pay for anything else. I tried to convince him to frame the whole ceiling flat as I am not a fan of cathedral ceilings in a kitchen (or anywhere ... more »

Yes, white everything like this one is definitely in style now. Who knows how long it will last.

This one is actually a real light grey but might as well be white. But every once in a while we get to do something different, which ... more »

I'm not a big fan of all the white either, but like you said not my call. But all white is the rage lately, at least around here. Those are all real wood cabinets, I'll never put in thermafoil (I've taken many out though). The cabinets in the first kitchen ... more »

Added reply in a thread What do you guys think of finance? 4/17/2017 6:24 PM

Not really. I work for tons of "money smart people" and I can assure you none of them operate that way. The idea of financing a toy would never cross any of their minds. First off, has the return on mutual funds always been 16% over a 12 month period? ... more »

The only way I'm aware to have a "good score" and not pay any interest is by using a credit card and paying it off every month. But from what I've been told (I don't have much experience with credit cards) that usually ends up not netting a good score, ... more »
