Hebrew Slave

I worked like a Hebrew slave for four days pulling this out of my yard--brick and concrete. Evidently the previous owner was at war with my neighbor. She built a wall. He sued. She lost. Instead of properly disposing of the trash, she had it dumped in the front and rear corners of the yard. The green herbie curbie was my wheel barrow. In the right frame of mind, you could look at it as a good work out.

Danish Oil vs. Poly for wood floors,,1045852,00.html

I tried this and it goes on easy and looks great. Another great thing about Danish Oil is that it is the stain and the protection coat in one step.

I wanted to replace my shower in the bathroom. The lowest quote I have gotten is $13,000! Yikes. That won't be happening. I am now trying to decide whether to go with Ikea cabinets in my kitchen, or custom made. There is a guy in Monticello, GA, Benny Hart of Hartwood Cabinets, that is actually only a couple thousand dollars more than Ikea.
