    I have a similarly hard (uh, impossible) time finding shoes that fit well and I can wear for any length of time! No plantar fasciitis I think, but bunions and big feet do make it an endless chore.

    Another NO on the swimming! Just, you know, for a bit of variety and contrariness on COTH. ;)

    @ HungarianHippo - great story! Where did you find a 12' web aisle guard, though?

    Thank you, too, flashwhitelock - that's a very helpful description, and we have all the materials to hand already, by chance.

    If you do use hemlock, use it right away. When it's "green," it's soft and easy to cut (although juicy), and easy to nail or put screws in. Once it's dry, it's like rock, and it does splinter.

  11. How to make hanging beam (aka bale!) stall dividers?

    Has anyone ever made one of these? I remember reading about them as a kid, which is a fat lot of good when trying to remember specifics as an adult.

    So "Tikun" created an ID just to post this video? Hmm.

    iirc, it was, post-civil war, known as a Boston marriage: there were so many widowed women, that some of them moved in together, no doubt to ease the pocket, and for companionship.
