    I'm doing the final design for the range hood, and I'm curious to know which of the three
    people most prefer. There are no panels like the right two versions anywhere else in the
    kitchen, but I am not...

    You hate your customers. Of course you do.

    "Need" seems kind of silly to me, honestly. I can't begin to list all of the renovation
    projects I've completed, BIG stuff, completely renovated the kitchen and living room in the old
    house, added a b...

    Our driveway's kind of a PITA for backing up and turning around, especially since I built the
    shed/garage. I'm eyeballing the Taco now. Same price, essentially, few miles, little older.
    Looks like a h...

    You know... I didn't think the turning radius was that bad. I was actually surprised at how
    good it was in the parking lot. One of my pet peeves on my wife's old Civic was how ****ty the
    turning radiu...

    going to restore. Told him that was all I cared about inheriting!

    I LOVE my 2012 Tundra. Love it, love it, love it. It's way too big, I'll admit, but it rides
    nice, runs well, has four doors, and is just a great all around truck. It's in Texas with us
    now, and this ...

    I'm guessing not as much salt as around here, though.This is a Tundra I'm leaning toward, BTW.
    Kind of wish it was a Tacoma (I don't NEED a huge truck), but it's the best deal I've seen and
    I dob't ha...

    78k miles on this one, which I'm not loving. But it's only got four winters, which is probably
    more important out here than out by you.

ABSOLUTELY!



That's what personal days are for ! I took one today, and bottled another batch of Haus Ale, this time with Thames Valley Yeast ...and I took advantage of the yeast washing page to harvest ... I made a nice starter using 4 oz of LME for a bit of this magic yeast ...



I am a born-again yeast starter ... a bit of effort, but it gives me confidence to know it will work fast when pitched



what's up with ingenuity North ?
