• How do you get rid of woodpeckers?

    Okay, there is always this stupid, annoying woodpecker that is always pecking on my house, outside my bedroom. my dad has tried covering the holes it makes with metal, but the bird just finds another part to peck.

  • How many watts is my wall outlet?

    Best answer: The outlet is PROBABLY a 15 amp outlet. That translates to 1800 watts. It has been standard for outlets in the US for more than 50 years. In fact, I would be SHOCKED if you have even SEEN an outlet that wasn't on a 15 amp or 20 amp circuit. Also note: The fact your PC power supply is rated for 1000 watts... show more

    Also note: The fact your PC power supply is rated for 1000 watts doesn't mean it actually DRAWS 1000 watts. Unless you have a custom gaming PC, you probably don't actually draw more than 600 watts for the PC.

  • Mix in a bucket concrete?

    Best answer: I agree with the others, it sounds like you need mortar. You can mix it yourself in a bucket or for larger amounts in a wheelbarrow. I ve done both. You ll also see on building sites the boys simply doing it by shovel on a board. The ratio is about three parts sand to one part cement plus a little water. You don... show more
    Best answer: I agree with the others, it sounds like you need mortar. You can mix it yourself in a bucket or for larger amounts in a wheelbarrow. I ve done both. You ll also see on building sites the boys simply doing it by shovel on a board. The ratio is about three parts sand to one part cement plus a little water. You don t want to make it wet like porridge, that could well fall out and will give you a weak bond, just wet enough that you can squeeze some into a ball. You can also get ready-made bags with sand and cement already in them, you just add water and mix.

    I'm ordering this tent to camp. It's exactly what I'm looking for EXCEPT the "porch" does not have flaps to cover it if it rains. Any solutions? I was thinking using metal clasps/snap button things (sorry idk how to explain it much better) & cutting it to fit the screens individually so you can attach & unattach them. Maybe there are other, easier solutions I couldn't think of. The tent is in my price range & otherwise is exactly what I'm looking for so please don't suggest I buy a different one. I've looked for a long time with no luck.

My wife was and still is, a Homemaker, While raising eight children she kept a neat house. If I left a teacup in the sink, the next time I walked by that cup, now clean, would be in the drying rack. The children are all grown, but today se vacuumed all the carpets, even in the rooms that are not used. Some people are like that. Your friends are slobs and nothing will change them. Either put up with it or move them out.

  • Planting a garden over a playground?

    Planting a garden over a playground?

    Best answer: The sand base would be good for drainage. But, rather than pile soil on top of that, consider building raised beds. You'll use less soil, and won't spend nearly as much time on your knees as you tend your garden.
