    I feel like I'm alone here and would appreciate any input to help me better focus on a plan.

    My AC unit was working when I moved in a few months ago. The house had been vacant awhile before that, not sure how long. Now even when it is set at 78, it seems to stay at 85. It has one of those mercury thermostats. I will be changing that to a simple digital one. Could it be the...

    She is chow/Keeshound. Long fur thick fur. I know not to cut her undercoat so she remains protected from the elements. She has been clipped before and she looked beautiful. But beauty is not the reason behind the clip, she is suffering from allergies and is just scratching herself crazy. We...

    I have a tiled wall shower and the area where the tub and tile meet are constantly turing green/brown with what I guess is mildew or something. There is caulk there, which is where it is "growing". I have tried bleach regular household cleaners but nothing is working. Does anyone have any...

    Spent $$ to go see my sis and brother in law and their children / grandkids in another state. My mom and dad were there, which is one of the reasons why. It's easier (and cheaper) to visit that state than where my parents live. My parents both knew that my DBF was coming. The scenario...
