    Not as much snow here as in Boston, but we've had enough that streets are way more narrow than usual. Springfield has a relatively poor system for snow removal, so a lot of the streets I normally...

    I guess I'm one of the rare few that doesn't like the Action LED diffuser at all. I find that the beams spreads out too much laterally, lighting parts of the road I don't need to see. At the same...

    The first 5 pounds is often pretty easy to lose because it's 20% calories (glycogen) and 80% water. Chances are you can lose 5 pounds in just a few days by creating a 500 - 1,000 cal/day deficit by...

    To me, $500 buys a "decent" bike and $1,000+ is the lower limit of nice bike territory. Around here, a $1,000 used car may barely run, or at the least has major repair expenses likely in the next...

    Have you tried adding some cross bracing to the joists under the sunroom? Maybe do that with 2x6 blocks between joists, and couple them to the subfloor with construction adhesive.
