    Backyard Office

    We are buying a place on 1.5 acres. Rather than converting a bedroom into a study, I wanted to look at putting an office in the backyard somewhere to give me a bit of separation from the doorbell, dog barking, etc. There is a lot online about tiny houses, but I dont need a bathroom/kitchen...

    In home hospice questions

    We are checking out in-home hospice options for my father. I'm not really looking for recommendations on providers as he will not be in this immediate area, but rather what are the right things to look for and ask when selecting a provider? We will likely need a hospital type bed, so any...

    Used guitar places

    Does anyone know of a good place around here that sells used guitars? My son has shown an interest in guitars, and it would be fun to re-live my awkward middle school guitar playing days. I dont want to drop a ton of $ on anything and I would rather not just hit up random pawn shops.

    RoughRiders Tantrum

    Kinda funny, kinda sad.... He is good at his sliding into 2nd demo, but his attempt to punt the bag was pretty weak.

    Hammacher Schlemmer - Awesome lifetime warranty

    In 2008, I bought a Roomba from Hammacher Schlemmer ( I bought it from them since the whole Roomba thing seemed pretty gadgety and I was pretty sure it would break quicker than a normal vacuum. They have an advertised lifetime warranty, so I figured what the heck. 8...

    Texas Legends - Good time

    I just wanted to post about the Texas Legends. We had never been to a game and decided to go to the game last night. The kids had a blast, probably spending half the time watching the game and the other time walking around with all of the side attractions. The best part was after the game...
