• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

“Mystery cookies from otc’s mom” sounds like code for something.

An easily breakable code.

If “mystery cookies from other countries” = “camel dung” to you, you need to travel more.

HOA fees that are like $1K a month. TF are you even paying for. Sometimes the HOA fee is like 30%+ of the actual mortgage/rental payment

Really hard to compare apples to apples with HOA fees: large buildings have massive maintenance and insurance costs, for example, that Piob’s neighborhood doesn’t have. There may also be costs for amenities like 24 hour security, a gym / pool, etc.

That said anyone who doesn’t think three times before paying those fees should have their head examined.

I just bought something from Amazon (a non-prime seller), and it showed up directly from Home Depot. The Home Depot price was about 20% more than Amazon.

No HOA’s for me. I live in an unregulated part of Houston. It’s great that I’m walking distance within a bunch of bars.

Yeah, but wait until I buy the house next door and set three old pick ups on blocks.

That’s basically the house behind me and the neighbors down the street. My area is a mixture of yuppies in high rise town homes and OG residents who’ve been living there for 50 years.
