    Right now it is about 57 degrees outside. I have the bedroom windows open to get help get some fresh air inside. With the sun shinning in and me being dressed warmly it feels warmer. Am enjoying the good weather now, who knows when it will be like this again!!!
  3. Home Environment
    I have realized we need to replace some of the Windows in our home. We have the old slat windows which are not very energy or cost efficient. I am getting 5 estimates - I know sounds like a lot but it really isn't because it's 3 local business, Lowe's and Home Depot. I want to make the BEST...
  4. Question and Answer
    DD hosed up our old laptop. A few months back she set up multiple user accounts; set herself as admin and apparently deleted my admin account. Then the laptop got put away out of sight/out of mind. Of course she can't remember her password now, so we can't get the internet security package...

    Anyone ever put tin foil over a window to reflect heat? I did it once in a older house I once lived in, and my husband did in college in his dorm. We put some over a large window today, that faces that backyard ( and the south) . no neighbors can see it, and no one can drive by and see it, so...

    Ok...I am starting the slow process of redoing my 17 yr. sons room...we've been in our home almost 2 years now and I've put it off long enough. He only has one small window in his room and I refuse to pay full price for curtains only to have to cut them off and hem them. So...I was doing some...
  7. Question and Answer
    I was curious as to which method works the best to keep the house cool in the summer: wax paper, aluminum foil or bubble wrap. I am hoping the bubble wrap will be efficient because it is easy to take on and off, lets the light through and can usually get it for free. Is this the best place on...
  8. Home Decorating
    Some of our windows don't have anything on them, and the livingroom, bathroom and our bedroom have floor length shears. I'm trying to think how to dress the house up for sale and I need to do something with the windows in the kids' bedrooms. Right now there is an old blind on one and a dark...

    I wasn't sure where to put this question...but I thought this might be a good place to ask (sorry if it isn't the right place!!) My house is 90 years old. It has original wood windows on the 2nd floor. They work fine, but in the winter our house is terribly cold. We have magnetic storms on the...
  10. Computers
    My son came home to visit this weekend bearing a gift for me, Windows 7 Professional! He knows I'm a computer geek. After a full 24 hours of playing with it, I like it! My HP laptop came with Vista (32-bit version), and a 64-bit processor, so I was able to clean install 64-bit Windows 7 and...

    At last! It's been a desire of ours for the past 10 years since we moved into this house. Finally, after getting out of debt, paying off the last loan, and getting our finances in order we saved up enough to pay for it. I wrote a check for the 50% deposit today. It was great to just write it...
  12. Just Tips
    So I've posted before in other posts about my war with my 1924 single pane windows. They lose heat like having a sheet of kleenex between you and the outside snow, they're insanely fragile because the glass is so old, and they get condensation on the inside that is ruining the inner frames...
  13. DIY
    ~Ok this isn't a DIY since the contractors are putting them in but I couldn't figure out where else to post it. They started an hour ago and have 2/10 windows installed! I'll post some after pics but here are a couple of before shots of the worst windows: Those are my living room windows...

    For all of you tech savvy folks. Am I nuts for considering this? I am seriously entertaining the idea of saying buh-bye to windoze and swithching to Ubuntu (linux) My only big hang up is that I have a couple of websites that I maintain that use Frontpage file extensions. I'm not sure if it...

    So, here is my dilema. I have a car that has 98XXX miles on it. I owe 2K on it. Which i have scheduled to have paid off by Feburary. I have already invested 1.4K to repair a leaking gasket, and now the neither the front or rear windows on the passenger side are working. The one in the front wont...

    I got 2 fleece blankets free using Extra Bucks at CVS a few weeks ago. I decided to pin the up in my bedroom for two reasons: 1. to block out extra light. DH sleeps during the day. 2. Save on heat by preventing drafts. It worked! We no longer feel the drafts and they do help block the light...
  17. Question and Answer
    I'm trying to do better about turning off the computer when not in use, but how do I clean out all the extra programs that load into memory when I turn it on? It takes so long to boot up with all the extra junk! Thanks, Becky

    Can someone explain the plastic on the windows thing to me? We will need to do some serious winterizing of the house this year, since gas prices are already up 24%. What kind of plastic? Something you get at home depot or plastic like saran wrap? I have no clue lol. Also, any other tips would be...

    We HAVE to replace some windows in our house. We knew it was coming but it is coming sooner than we thought. Which is ok, we've saved and saved so we have the cash for it. Here is the deal, we have had 5 different companies come and give us estimates and they all say they are the best. We...
