I know, buy it still takes longer than just cutting a zip tie.

Re: Things I Love


I always use only one side of my blades and that label dictates which side.

Re: Things I Love


So far, I love my new bank: M&T.

I just switched from PNC. PNC was constantly hitting more with fees and then raised my merchant services costs without notice then their customer service was not helpful. They lost payments made to my credit card which were made electronically from my PNC checking account - Go figure!!

Anyway, I love my new bank. It's now my business and personal bank.

Soak labels with paint thinner for about 5 minutes. They usually peel right off.

Re: Things I Love


Picked up the fuel sawzall today, they had a special on for a blade pack if you bought today. I told the rep I did not need it but he could throw in a bag I was interested. He did and added an XC battery and a refurbished charger that looks new to me.

Best part was its the last tool to replace what was stolen AND I upgraded to fuel on grinder, impact driver and Sawzall.

Re: Things I Love


I just found out a couple weeks ago that our neighbors are licensed rafting guides. And luckily our daughters are best friends. May have to hit them up if the temperature stays in the upper 90's/100's.

Did it today.

I also love watching somebody roof. It means we're not roofing anymore.

Wild raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Perfect snack while walking the dog. The strawberries are tiny but the flavour is unreal.

Re: Things I Love


What about bear berries, can you eat them? When we were vacationing in Alaska, they wouldn't tell us if they were edible, to keep us tourists from picking them.

Still waiting on mine. I discovered I had some wild ones last year and enjoyed a quart or so. I cut back the canes last winter and they came back 3-fold....but no signs of berries yet.

I'm hoping they appear.

Re: Things I Love


It can take 2 gears for them to come back after being cut back. We had a real deep freeze two years ago that killed ours off.

They are just coming back strong this year.

Now you tell me. I did some research and was just following directions....cut them back every year for a bigger crop.

Re: Things I Love


I suppose it depends on how far back. Here it us a bit early still, but it has been hot and dry. We are maybe a month ahead of schedule with the berries.

Should be a bumper crop. It may still be early in your neck of the woods.
