    Re: Something in the attic...

    Fortunately, it wasn't anything too awfully creepy.

    You were right, Bird, it was rat(s). I put one of the traditional wooden snap-traps up there (baited it with cheese, BTW) and got me a rat. I've...

    Something in the attic...

    I was up in the attic today running a new cable and found something that I didn't expect. One of the issues I have at my house is that it is wood siding and we have woodpeckers. I have yet to find a...

    You guys *are* lucky. I pay $29 / month for trash pickup, but I have to haul the can to the bottom of the drive. If I forget - well, too bad for me. I suppose the "good news" is that the can is big...

    Re: Trash-Toter

    Yup, they have one. I've seen a couple and think about 'em once in a while, but my driveway is only 250' so it isn't that big of a deal for me to haul it down by hand or by tractor. Here's one of...

    I'd keep it. I don't use mine often, but it does come in handy. Right now I'm using it to mow an area that I recently seeded - until the grass is fairly mature it is better to keep the heavy lawn...

    Turbo Tax is a good program and will work fine for most returns. I'm pretty comfortable with computers but I still use a person (I agree - not the tax guy in the box). I hope to never be audited, but...
