    Good enough.. Isn't
  1. outlets with surge protectors

    Hey Al.. What did they do back then when the Titanic went down due to bad steel?
  2. I was ordered to make 2 chess men

    Stay tuned. Larry Jenkins
  3. Why You Shouldn't Buy The Alexa

    If this is all true, and I have a hard time believing this, what can they find out? We have had our Alexa for some time now. Yes, playing it through our stereo without no one knocking at our door, or smothering us with mail or TV ads. How do you spell "paranoid?" Larry
  4. Decking material choices

    2 x 6 Western Red Cedar .. 16" OC and apply your favorite color of transparent oil based stain.
  5. Alexia

    Yes, Mable.. there is hot water. For those who want it.. I'm done.
  6. Alexia

    Jokers abound. Sad.. Something so simple; so great.. yet, it's humorous to most. Larry
  7. printer ink cartridge

    Do your homework. Know the exact Model Number.. Then contact Amazon. Look at all of them. Some very good buys embedded in their ads.. Larry
  8. Alexia

    Funny how a sound subject goes to the farm.. Wiring Alexa to your stereo system is spectacular.. For under 5 bucks.. No one cares.. Larry
  9. New 5" Round Orbital Sanders

    I have had a Porter Cable 5" random orbit sander for many years. The secret to keeping the Hook and Loop pad working well is to clean off the pad very good before changing pads. A cloth and some compressed air works well. Stay away from the stick ons. Larry
  10. New guy

    Welcome.. Cheap tools will cost you twice. Buy the best you can afford. Take time to do a new workshop layout. Larry
  11. Alexia

    Now try this.. If you have a stereo receiver, you can buy a small cable that attaches to Alexa and goes into the AUX input of your receiver. Then when you ask Alexa to play your favorite song, it will be in unbelievable stereo sound! Actually better than the radio sound. Under 4 bucks./Amazon. Larry
  12. Christmas in Nashville, TN

    I am 86. Wife is 84. Blessed with decent health. We often say, " If you think you have it bad, just look around you." Eat well; drink some red wine and keep a positive attitude.
  13. Hang in there. Al.. Age is an attitude. Chinese Pepper beef keeps your pencil sharp.
  14. 56th today!!

    Most of us don't get that far. Takes a give and take to make it work. Congratulations! 65 for us next June. Larry
  15. Tackling a repair more my size

    Gene.. and others. India Ink is a wonderful stain, especially on Red Oak. It makes the wood very black, but shows the grain lines very well. Covers well too with Satin wipe-on poly and rubbed out. Larry.
