    It's no problem to stop emails from such. Just block the address. As far as USPS mail, there is a return address on their mailings. Either fill the return envelope with junk paper and return it, or trash it. Ain't no free lunch, you have to pay...

    MaryB replied to a thread Kitchen Counter Tops in Our Town
    Concrete tops can be done yourself. I helped a friend pour 20 feet of it. 1/2" ply bottom, reinforcing mesh wire held up 1/2 inch, then a lip around the edges and for the back wall we just layered up tape and poured up tight to the wall then cut off...

    Bacon is a food group! I fry up a half a pound because I usually eat 2 pieces before rest of the meal is ready! Locally made thick cut bacon, half pound is 6-7 pieces

    Hey it is what qualified back in the day! I only had them a little over a year, hearing loss made the amp better off sold and I hated the speakers. My old Zenith MC4000's sound better! And I bought them in 1980! Still have them too, they are my main...

    I am lucky, local co-op refills tanks so I have 2 that look like new even if they are 15 years old. Need to get 2 more, in winter I need one in the garage heater, 2 for the beer brewing rig rig, and 1 for the other burner for smelting.

    MaryB replied to a poll Corned Beef Hash in Cookin' Recipe's
    I use a griddle to fry it on, spread it out in a thin layer to cook off the water and crisp it faster. More crispy goodness that way too! And yes, start with a little bacon fat! The onion/garlic are optional if you are in a hurry.

    Transferred the Cyser to secondary and off the yeast cake. It was ready for that. WOW does that stuff have an alcohol bite! Good flavor but definitely needs to age. Figure 2 months secondary then bottle it.

    The sad thing is you may try time after time and suddenly the problem disappears without you knowing why. A little lino (to harden and fill out) added will likely help. Once you get the melt level down in the pot, a good scraping of the pot...

    Cabinets are not hard to install, did it a dozen times while growing up and twice in my own house. Level ledger board, if the wall is out of plumb and my old house built in the 1880's is not square anywhere! Think the carpenter was drunk! I ended up...
