    Dingo Boots

    That’s all my dad wore in the 70’s. He’d wear them out. I wear black harness boots riding my motorcycle. Sometimes I wear them out casually too.

    Bought a cheap 9mm pistol

    Nothing wrong with a pistol that was inexpensive. I’ve learned that the price of a firearm really doesn’t make a huge difference in reliability. Not saying every inexpensive gun is a quality piece but they’re out there. I had forgotten about this BRG9 but looked through one of my old...

    Should I say something or not? Potential alcoholic ...

    What? 30 beers in an evening after work? I doubt it. A half gallon after work? The half gallon of liquor would trump the beer by far. Not sure how a person would function after all that in a short amount of time let alone live. I know alcoholics. What you’re stating as a nightly regimen is...

    What is this?

    Thanks for the links and info TMORRIS1. I guess it stays. It is on the side of the room opposite the furnace and water heater. But it’s not real a big deal that it’s there. But glad now I understand why it’s there.

    What is this?

    No wood burning stove here. House is 19 years old. I remember asking what this was to the home inspector. He had no clue. Which if it’s a necessary item in this house you’d think a local home inspector would have seen this before. We’ve lived in newer and older homes and never had anything...

    What is this?

    We have a radon reduction system on the other side of the room. It’s not a dryer vent. Dedicated Laundry room is main floor. There is absolutely nothing on that side of the basement back room. The duct runs up to a vent outside in the back of the house. Not a bathroom exhaust either. Full...

    What is this?

    In my basement utility room there is this flexible insulated duct. It runs to a vent in the siding outside. The duct is not connected to anything in the basement. It just hangs there. I asked a few people what the purpose of this is and didn’t get an answer. Even asked the last HVAC tech...

    Tire recommendations for 2018 Chevy Equinox

    About a month ago I had the General 365aw’s put on my mother’s 2019 Equinox awd. The feedback from her is all positive. Quieter and take bumps better than the factory Michelins. She also had to drive on bad winter roads (after a blizzard) the first week she had them. Said they were “a...

    Anyone have the General 365aw on their vehicle?

    Absolutely as long as I can get her to let me know what she thinks. I really am hoping these do well for her.

    Anyone have the General 365aw on their vehicle?

    Thanks for the replies. Been looking at and reading tire reviews in my spare time for a few days. Trying to find something above average for winter in an all season. I just went ahead with the General 365aw. Price point was decent as in not too high. More than she was expecting but I had...

    Anyone have the General 365aw on their vehicle?

    I’m looking at these tires for my mother’s 2019 Chevy Equinox AWD. She is on the go constantly it seems and lives up north so winter roads can be a mess. The Michelin Primacy tires on it now are to the wear bars. They wore evenly to their 37,000 but look shot. She claims it never did well in...

    People taking blood pressure meds

    I take Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg once a day around noon. Take Lisinopril 40 mg too. I’ve been on meds for well over 20 years. I’ve had high blood pressure since I was a teen but never really paid attention to it. Finally around age 25 I started meds. Just the way I am for some reason. I...

    What’s a 1997 Maytag Washer & Dryer Worth?

    Make sure you have newer hot/cold water hoses hooked to your washer. I guess it’s recommended to replace every 5 years.

    Kelly Tires really?

    I had 2 sets of Kelly tires on a Subaru and a Chrysler mini van. All needed to be replaced in under 30K miles due to cupping with excessive vibration and noise. Driving over 40 would produce so much steering wheel and dashboard vibration it was ridiculous. Tires were properly inflated and...
