  • It's looking good and sounds like a great learning experience...........good luck with the grout........lol
  • Sounds like you figured it out! Like I said, tile is sooooooo challenging!
  • Oh my gosh, you're not having the best of luck are you? Hopefully it all works out in the end. You're persistent so you'll get it!
  • Looks great Wayne. You remind me of my father, he was so particular to all the details and the best practice on any job. Walter is more of a fly by the seat of his pants repair man. Luckily I'm detail oriented so we make a fairly good team. Looking forward to seeing the finished floor!
  • hmmmm, in my experience tile isn't too tough in a small area but in a larger area you might need some help. We've done both, on our own and with help!
  • Looks like you're making progress Wayne! Looking forward to seeing it completed!
  • Nice work. We always hire electrical wore here as hubby and I virtually know nothing.
  • I remember the pics from last year of you doing the front porch. It's a great improvement!
  • Hi everyone, and welcome to those coming back to MFP, those just starting their journey and those of us who keep plugging away at it here. I started here on Sept 17, 2013 and am still going strong. Lost about 50 lbs but gained 10 back this past year so I'm working on getting that off now. I lift weights, swim, walk/hike…
  • Fantastic work! You should be very proud of yourself!
  • Hi everyone. My name is Lulu (or Linda) and my best girl Penny Lane turned 9 on March 1st. We rescued her from the animal shelter when she was about 3 months old. They told us she had a rare disease but we adopted her anyway and it turns out that she's just fine and very healthy. Not sure what breed she is but has some…
  • Here in CA with spiking cases and new shutdowns, doing the best we can! Speaking of COVID, I found out yesterday that my therapist has a patient who tested positive and they closed the facility down for about 5 days and tested all the therapists and staff. I missed one day of therapy when they cancelled my appt and I asked…
  • OMG, I just read this quote..........."It's a lot easier to wear a mask than a ventilator"............TRUTH
  • The most difficult part of this pandemic is not seeing my family. My daughter and son, with spouses and 3 grandchildren live in CO. We were there in November last year for my grandson's 2nd birthday and haven't seen any of them since. My other daughter lives in SF and has been isolating herself since this began. She did…
  • @GaleHawkins, thanks and wow that must have been pretty frightening during that crisis. Most people I've talked to that have had it done recently have had great success so I'm expecting the same.
  • @mockchoc, thanks for the well wishes. I'm not worried really just glad to finally be able to move forward and hoping to be back to hiking sometime this summer. All of this happening during a pandemic has certainly been interesting though. ;)
  • I only check in here occasionally but I do read the posts everyday. It's been a very interesting look into the world pandemic. I'm having hip replacement surgery on Wednesday and boy has this been an experience. I basically knew about 8 months ago that this was where I was headed but tried to avoid it with PT in the Fall,…
  • I feel fortunate that the area I live in in So Cal (Riverside County), while being the county with the 2nd largest number of cases (Los Angeles being the highest), has taken this seriously since the beginning. We've been ordered to wear masks for the last month at least and I think it's paid off. While other counties are…
  • @whoami67, we're fortunate here, we can see them quite well from the freeway so we don't actually have to stop. It was so crowded last year that we couldn't find a place to park anyway and I saw a lot of people off trails and traipsing through the poppies. I wasn't happy about that at all. If we go next weekend I'll post a…
  • @whoami67 Is that photo really of HB yesterday? I don't see any masks, and I've seen only a few people out without masks in SoCal the past couple weeks, even out near the beach (not on the beach; mine is closed). Yes, unfortunately that was a real photo of Huntington Beach yesterday, Newport Beach is the same although the…
  • Here's a pic from Huntington Beach in CA from today. Yeah, I think people have given up on social distancing, at least at the beaches here. I grew up between HB and Newport Beach in CA and while this isn't crowded by many standards, I don't think folks are really obeying the rules here. No clue what that might mean but as…
  • Unfortunately, the current discussion also seems to be that having it, especially a mild case, quite likely does not convey immunity. Yes, that's why we're not super excited about the possibility that we may have had it already. Especially for me, since I didn't show much in the way of symptoms, other than a slight…
  • I didn't have a chance to look back through all the posts today but wondered if anyone highlighted the fact that here in CA (Santa Clara County) based on autopsy results of people who died at home, we had a COVID-19 death on Feb 7 and another on Feb 17 as confirmed by the CDC. The virus was here earlier than we thought…
  • I'm sure we need a lot more antibody testing to really know one way or another how many people have had it and maybe weren't ever tested or didn't even know they had it. There is also some speculation that the antibody testing may not be as accurate as previously thought. I just copied what was reported in the LA Times…
  • I can't find a free link to the study in LA County but here's a brief outline of the results. On Monday, an initial report from that study was released. Based on their findings, researchers estimate that about 4.1% of the county’s adult population could have an antibody to the virus. After adjusting that estimate for the…
  • Bless your heart for what you do. <3
  • It's true it could just be one of those odd MFP things, there are so many :) I'll do the same and presume it was just a mistake.
  • LOL, I'm wondering what I said that someone would disagree with? I didn't state an opinion just the facts from where I live. Very strange.
  • I haven't posted here in a couple of weeks but I do follow along with the rest of you most days. Here is the broad outline of what we’re going to be working on here in CA over the next several weeks as we answer these questions. Laying the groundwork for getting people back to work and slowly opening up business again…
  • I've followed this group since it's inception and it's such a great resource for all of us to compare what we know, what we think, and how to safeguard our families and loved ones. I’m so grateful for Governor Newsome and our public health department for taking early mitigation steps and being honest with us about what…
