    A 70 (3.89) for me today. Fundad, when I had to replace the shingles on my roof, I opted for the 30 year shingles, which were the best shingles the company offered at that time. I now see that you can get 50 year shingles, so when my existing shingles need to be replaced, I'll opt for the 50 year shingles, even though I won't live for another 50 years, but at least I'll know that my roof will.😄

    A 94 (5.22) today. Lee, do what I did when I had to take my old compact refrigerator down the stairs. Lay the book case on it's back, sideways, or, if it's too wide to get it down the steps sideways, then lay in on it's back in whatever position it will go down the the steps, then loop a rope around the sides, or around the top and bottom, depending on which way it's going to go down the steps, and tie it snug. Next slide the shelf down the steps and have it rest on one of the steps, while you are holding the rope. Sit down on the top step, and slowly slide the shelf down to the next step, all the while holding the rope. Keep doing that until the shelf is on the floor, off of the bottom step, then tilt it back up, and you can now move it where ever you want it. If your steps aren't carpeted, place a blanket over them to prevent scratching the shelf or the steps.

    6.5 I might be living here for some time if a buyer wants me to replace the rusty roof. I only want to sell the house because it needs too much work done. Irin, wow... theres such a lot involved with show dogs. Whats pull hair? It sounds painful.. like when my boy walks across my hair to check the bedside table for whatever he imagines is there.

    Was 152 this morning, packing for a road trip to Ames, IA - midpoint between us and Minneapolis. Baby girl Snap goes to spa with her breeder who is also a groomer and a Dog Wisperer, she is very successful in conditioning pups for the ring at the dog shows (how they stand, at what angle the tail is held, etc.) and she needs to pull old hair to make sure puppy coat is healthy and shiny (clipping ruins bristle coat). So, we'll drive 3 hrs to meet our peeps in Ames, transfer Snap and supplies to another car and return home to sleep in our own beds. FunDad, I am voting State Farm agency as well because they have "replacement" policy vs. "market value" policy and will negotiate with the client about things. Could probably have some kind of solution for your case.

    It is very useful, we ourselves sometimes forget if we closed garage door for sure. You can look it up on the app and close if it is open. Also I find it convenient when walking the dog - dont need a key to fumble getting into front door (and my storm door is locked from inside as well). 156 today, we have winter wonderland right now - blizzard warning till 6pm today. Miss Muddy Paws is now robed in small snow balls all over her legs and belly but the pups are enjoying the snow; neighbor's pitbull girl had full body suit this morning - a wimp compared to our cairns

    Normally I am complaining that I don't know why my reading is so high but today I am saying that I have no idea why it was 117.

    7.3 & love the No Barking sign. Indonesia's volcano is pumping out ash, which will give us spectacular sunsets. Theyve just lost 49 people from the 6.2 earthquake. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-01-17/semeru-volcano-erupts-on-indonesias-java-island-earthquake/1306473 arms & back are aching today. Bulk waste collection time so I attempted to de-clutter. Emptied a bookshelf thinking of buying another whenever I get a new house. Getting it down 5 stairs was a challenge while thinking what a sturdy piece it is. Then 2nd thoughts came in... Yup.. I brought it back inside but the place it lived in is no longer available. I guess I'll be walking it around the house cussing second thoughts.

    82 I'm going to shop around with other insurance companies but this information came from a broker, who runs it through several companies for the best deal. Also, I have to have full coverage to get the mortgage. I don't see me paying one penny for it as I'm already contracting at full asking price. Found another house yesterday that just went on the market that looks much nicer for the same price. Going to look at it this afternoon after I donate blood.

    A 92 (5.11) today. DianaCT, years ago I had a spring break on my garage door also. The door was a heavy wooden door, and I doubt that I could have manually raised it with a broken spring. I installed my electric door opener myself, and it's been working for many years. The only repair that it needed, was when a starting capacitor went bad, so I got a replacement, and replaced it myself. I now have a more modern, metal garage door, that has a much higher "R" rating, so it insulates better.

    7.3 "Vog" my new word for the day. We get the most beautiful sunsets when Indonesias volcano erupts. Farmyards gate sales are threatened with extinction because of housing estates. Our food bowl is essential for our existense. I didnt drive out to the plum orchard this xmas. Their plums taste divine & nothing like those in the stores. The local peach orchard has been taken over as a housing estate. One gardener 30mins away had a few box trailers chained to trees & an honesty box to leave $'s when you buy a variety of vegetables. Another gardener sells flowers. Beautiful Dahlias of all colours & sizes that I cant resist buying several bunches. I hate their perfume, but a fan nearby disperses most of it while I enjoy the vibrant colours. Irina, "duvet" is another different word, we call it a doona.
