Are those fans common? We have one, too. It's working fine (albeit noisily), but I've actually been thinking about taking it out. We had somebody come out the clean the dryer vent shortly after we moved in, and they mentioned those fans not being up to code. My cursory research on the topic seems to confirm that, and the consensus appears to be that they cause more accumulation/fire risk than they prevent.
Hey, bro, the world's largest religion's second-largest division exists because some dude nailed his homework to a door; I'm pretty sure we could, like, save the world if we all raise awareness with our Facebook walls.
Yeah, the comps are going up give you trouble. When we bought our house, the dearth of comps actually worked in our favor. The appraiser had to go pretty far back to find enough to do the appraisal, which, in our market, meant missing a fair bit of value growth. It was great for us because it put the seller in a bind, but it certainly wasn't what they wanted (which is where you are now). That said, you can appeal an appraisal, so you could always make your case regarding...
A Facebook friend of mine was recently tagged in a post by his girlfriend. It was one of these "we help so many people, and they all just abandon us in our times of need, so we're cutting off contact with all of you selfish 'friends' who don't value our awesomeness" posts. The first comment was some dude saying, "I loaned you guys $60 over a year ago so you could move, you have yet to pay me back, and you're dodging my calls/texts."
The very idea of it is just idiotic, and it's indicative of everything that's wrong with millennials and the way our society treats them."These kids are a bunch of entitled assholes who think the whole world should accommodate them. Hey! I have an idea! Instead of expecting them to adhere to a very simple rule of etiquette everyone else in the world has no trouble following, let's just let them ruin everyone else's experience so these precious snowflakes aren't momentarily...
Ed isn't a Braves fan. He probably has some story he uses to explain this away despite its obvious inconsistency with his professed love of the ATL, but it's really just because we all decided we didn't want him. And we're rebuilding! Or something.
H and I are similarly adept at car repair, and I have a reliable shadetree guy for when stuff gets beyond my abilities. A head job on an import, however, is an entirely different animal.
Thanks, dudes. I'm going to push and see if I can get some compensation, but I'm not optimistic.Because the shop it was at was a place I'd used for other repairs, and they did well. I also had a strong feeling it was in the valve train, so I was confident they were correct. Despite being major engine work, redoing a head shouldn't be that difficult for a decent mechanic, but I guess they got out of their depth. Plus, I didn't get a referral for the second place until I'd...
So at some point recently I'm pretty sure I complained here about my car issue. I had it in the shop for what I suspected would be a big repair, and my suspicion was confirmed: The car needed a top-end rebuild. Fast forward to the car being finished, at which point the shop informed me that the rebuild was done, and the problem remained. They were "kind" enough not to charge me for they work they did, and told me I could have it back. I went to pick it up, and the damned...
I woke up about 20 minutes before my alarm the other morning and thought "ugh, I'm so tired, I really don't want to get up for work in 20 minutes." Then I realized it was Sunday .
