    I need to buy a new front storm door and I am reading the reviews online and they are awful. I found a door at Lowe's - that had bad reviews; found one at HD - that had bad reviews. The Pella door has this hideous brass trim I hate. I want a bronze/brown door with two windows and a screen that...

    The latch has been fixed. Once you open up the lock cartridge it is a mechanical puzzle. It only needed a spring which we found at the local hardware store for $1.28. While Hubby was in the lock cartridge, he investigated the locking mechanism which is a 1915 dead blot system not lock and key...

    It's made by Bally Total Fitness and I got one for a Christmas gift exchange present. I have literally two exercises that I can do with it. But, is there more? All there are are leg lifts and abdominal leg raises. :(
  5. Homesteading and gardening
    I'm trying something different, and will let you know later how it goes. We made a small raised bed garden last year at this new house, and it just did so well. We loved it. But the soil is cold up here, and I have to wait quite a while before setting out plants. Meanwhile, we remodeled...

    Little Miss was in need of Dresses and/or skirts as her closet was pretty much outgrown ( and handed down). Very bare in there. We generally have a hard time finding long flowing skirts ( that "twirl") that Little Miss prefers, at least ones that don't cost a bunch. So we had them to the keep...

    This was a nicely written article on being a "cheapskate"...really more of a simple-living/frugal lifestyle. The author interviewed sounds really down to earth and has some good info. It's going on my library book list for sure! Cheapskate Next Door

    What's the best way to clean a glass shower door? My parents have been gone for a couple weeks, but I'm having trouble falling into any sort of routine here. I've just been floating through the days, feeling a bit disconnected and letting the housework slide. My mother wipes it down after...

I came home to find that he had taken my hanger and turned it upside down over the rod and used it as a belt hanger. I told him that...

    I was horrified when I read on Realtor dot com that my agent had stated how clean the house is. What? My house?! I have never thought of myself as much of a housekeeper. As soon as I read that I started cleaning some more. One problem area is the shower tracks for the glass doors. I have...
