    Oh, believe me I am all over Hanta Virus after mice invaded my old F350 truck one winter. Beyond gross. My project manager was here today with the cabinet guy, and he saw the hole and they will use...

    Oh lordy! We pulled the last cabinets in the kitchen, the sink and corner to the right of it....and discovered 41 years worth of rodent mess! Gagging, retching and squealing on my part ensued. ...

    Ribs are not a favorite of mine--done right, they are amazing, but so many are done wrong. Very wrong. And short ribs are not in the same category, because braised short ribs are a thing of tasty...

    Oh, honey, hang in there! Is there a counselor you could talk to at school who can refer you to a good therapist? You need a counter balance to your parent's campaign to "turn you straight by...

    I am concerned about mounting it in the cabinet to the side of the stove because of the height issue, as well. On the counter is a space suck, but so much easier to reach/use!

    We are on our...

    There was this guy back in the 1930's who also blamed his country's problems on immigrants and minorities...the common man loved him and his angry "telling it like it is" rhetoric, too. He espoused...

    That's about what I paid for all my pieces bought separately. I think it's not a bad buy, though. I just needed things not in a package. My contractor also pointed out that the...

    We are saving a huge amount of money by doing our own demo, but it is messy. We use hazardous materials masks and goggles, with throw away Tyvek type suits as our contractor's test of our ceiling...

    Sunwhinnies--that's what we did today, too! Who knew there are so many shades of white??! I had to pick out cabinet color and wall paint--my poor husband and I just do not see eye to eye. Oh, and...

    Meh. Let it go. DIL wants to limit exposure to overt stereotypes. Take a deep breath, nod yes and do what she asks. It really isn't very onerous to do so. Is it so hurtful to the girl to not be...

    Oh, we are doing a rain dance like crazy--hoping the weather service is correct on the incoming storm! The Portland area has received .25 inch of rain since June 6. Freakishly dry, brown and dusty....

    Callista17- go to a good paint store and tell them your story. I find Kilz Brand to be a great primer--blocks stains, dark colors, etc. A good paint store can really help you pick the right colors,...

    Painting paneling is easy. Do clean it first. Ditto with cabinets. Did that at my old house.

    Again, living in "Portland" doesn't mean you deal with the freeway hassles, unless you need to commute daily. There are many areas that leave you in a similar situation, OP, to the one you have now: ...
  15. Anybody else currently remodeling? Let's share!

    Mainly because my friends, family and coworkers are sick of hearing me talk about it! DH and I are just beginning a total kitchen remodel (we did the main bathroom in July--turned out fabulous!),...

    Mr. CC's family live smack in the middle of the Okanogan Complex fire(s). One uncle evacuated all his stock--horses and cattle and lived for a time in the Home Depot parking lot in Tonasket, the...

    Corvallis or Eugene would both be fine--college towns with OSU/UofO being there--but god help you on game days! Do come south into Oregon. I do think it would be a great fit and there are terrific...

    Portland, you'd fit in just fine. Eugene, Oregon might work. Vancouver, Washington would too. Really, anywhere along I-5 near a bigger city. Would enumclaw work?

    I hear, "right arm for" or "eye teeth for", but never boob or nut. The phrase implies giving up something you value highly but would sacrifice for an exceptional "thing". I don't use the cruder...

    Get one as soon as possible, find a good one on Ebay or order a starter model--make sure it fits well, covering your tailbone. Frankly, your trainer sounds like she is proactive in terms of...

    A year ago husband and I spent two days in Astoria, Oregon on the coast. I haven't really vacationed since I went to Europe 20 years ago for a month. We need to get away, really we do....

    Yes, that ship sailed. These inflammatory threads posted from questionable sources--regardless of political persuasion--are sadly indicative of the level of paranoid crazy out there. And that...

    It's not on here in the PNW--watched it this spring and thoroughly enjoyed it. Agree that the camaraderie among the contestants was wonderful to see. So unlike most cooking shows aired in the US.

    There's always more to the story than what gets reposted from some website.

    El Nino means a warm, dry winter for the PNW, rain for CA. After the record heat and drought this summer, I really don't want a dry winter. We have had more 90 degree days than ever here, .25 of an...
