I was looking forward to a Bert and Ernie for my desk...

And is there a place that has archived hi-res scans of the sticker sheet that's available for DL?
I'd like to see the Wolves go after a Center and a PF to try and spell KG a little bit and make some good matchup difficulty at SF
Also read a few days ago at ESPN that the Lakers might/should consider trading Shaq and keeping Kobe since he's younger, more motivated and has a lot more upside. I tend to agree with that but there aren't too many teams around that can take on Shaq's bloated contract
QuoteA Special value-pack will be available at Samís Club.
Huh? What do you suppose they mean by that? Maybe an OTC Falcon packed with a OTC Han and OTC Chewie?
how deep does your town's building code require you to get your posts & concrete or cement?
Better yet, get a tube and sink it in the hole, pouring in concrete after. The cement pads are the same concept, just easier.
Use 2x10s for the frame of the deck, well worth the additional cost for the return in strength you get. Probably won't add to the longevity, but won't detract from it either.
Use screws, not nails. Nails pop and tend to rust more easily. Replacing rotting boards down the road is much easier with screws as well, just reverse the drill.
Inspect the wood, don't let some home depot give you a bunch. If you get a warped piece, take it back. It's defective and a pain to them, but you are paying a premium for flat wood. Also use pressure treated wood if you are still able. Copper chromated arsenic is an evil thing, if you listen to the environmental working group, but your kid would have to ingest 2.5 ounces per day for life to get the chronic dose that might, just might lead to cancer in about 50 years (never mind the confounding factors they'll face in the interim). I know Minnesota is not exactly the hotbed for termites, but carpenter ants can do their fair share of damage too.
And mind your patience because if you're like me you'll wind up doing it by yourself if you don't control your temper.
Have lots of beer on hand. Trust me, you'll be sore afterwards, especially if you're not used to physical labor. Beer will ease the pain.
I'd also go with screws. Nails suck and you will definitely feel it in your shoulder after swinging a hammer all day. Buy a nice drill / screw gun (I recommend Dewalt). Trust me, for $129 at Home Depot, you'll get your money's worth.
Sorry to both, no meat prodcuts involved. (Does Spam qualify as meat?)
I think were still waiting for the answer on that one.
