  • SPORTS MOMENT: Standing next to Steve Snapp on the sidelines of 1v2 in the THE GAME when Robiskie caught the go ahead TD right in front of us, 6 feet in front of us. In all of the craziness and celebration, Snapp was so far gone he didn't even realize we scored, added a level of comedy to my excitement i've yet to duplicate

The NBA is worse than WWE. It's just for entertainment, I'll no longer refer to it as a major sport. This guy has set moving screen after moving screen. It's the only way GS can run their offense and they don't call it. Now the jackass can go around kicking guys in the nuts on multiple occasions and he gets nothing? Entertainment only.

Nice to see them do him dirty by holding on to him so long, free agency and the draft happened. Way to handicap a guy who gave it his all for the team last season.

Tony is obviously the favorite, has to be. The show was nothing without James Gandolfini. It was such a complex show that ive watched the series multiple times and it's still new and interesting. There are so many parts that are great but I enjoyed when Tony runs into the guy on Meadows college visit, when Chris and Paulie fight over his father in law (the end with Los Lobos - here in the valley playing and Chris picks up 1 plant Paulie ran over and puts it back amongst a trashed yard), when Tony messes with Juniors right hand man, there are too many to name. The series was supposed to make you hate the women in the mobs life and for the most part I hated every single one of them so for that, they all actually did their job as actresses. I did love Tony's Russian gumar though.

I was oddly satisfied with the ending. Everyone came to love Tony in the end and his life did not have a good ending. For Tony it was death or jail, which I think would have been an easy way out for Chase. Creatively it sucked, but the way it ended everyone who watched and felt a bond with Tony got to imagine their own ending. One that was probably unrealistic for Tony.

I was a scout but did not follow it through to Eagle Scout because of sports obligations. Like any large scale national association or organization, the true experience is going to be defined by your local troop and leader. The tenets of boy scouts of america (service, community, leadership) are strong and some of the life skills you develop (like outdoors, basic survival, etc) are great but I would caution anyone who thinks it is a panacea or fix all for getting a kid into scout like activities.

Kids love what their parents love, and if you love being outdoors, are community and service oriented, and are really devoted to seeing your son or daughter through a scouting program, they will have a fantastic experience.

If not, it might not be the best choice for you or your kids.

I'm an Ohioan living in a California world.

My friend says the same thing, he lives in San Francisco. Then he came to Ohio to visit and he was wearing his hipster frames, straight billed cap, a pencil thin mustache, and some of the tighter jeans I've seen a dude wear.

You may  be from Ohio, but you're a Californian now!

Thank BGSU, I did not pour the customer shower Basin or the first 2 rows of tile (included with Basin), otherwise that's all me. Tile is pretty easy and forgiving, it's just one of those things that people won't attempt but once they do its easy. Hundreds of lbs of concrete on the other hand, is fairly permanent. I don't mind passing the torch to the pros when it needs to be done properly.

As a fellow pool owner, I thought you'd be on my side here. You really dropping hot carls in your pool?

Work with what you have NorCal. My house is a concrete slab, and to move that toilet 6 inches to the right would have cost me upwards of $3,000.

If someone has a problem taking a deuce in it, I've got plenty of lawn for them to go pinch one off if they so choose.

EDIT: And we had a really serious debate about moving it. Since the work was completely "cosmetic" there was no permit pulled. To move that pipe, I would have to pull a permit which would have impacted other parts of the house.

It is 6" off of code. It sucks, but the minimum it would have cost is $3,000 but had the potential to get really ugly price wise, and also could have cracked the house main that is buried in concrete. So, what we have is non-conforming but acceptable because it was there prior to the code being put in place.

This!  So much this.  The guy is an asshole, and it makes the rest of the team assholes by association.

There's only a difference of 1/8" between the top and bottom of the shower in width but there is a point where the base sticks out about 1/4" from the tile on the one side.

Shoot, for some builders and contractors that would fall under the { acceptable tolerance }. It's all about the details. Be conservative with the Dremel but if you take a bit too much off, caulk is the way to go. Actually, use something called PolySeamSeal. It's an adhesive as well as a caulk.

Here are a few pictures from the most recent shower door install. We put an accent tile in and i didn't realize until about half way across the shower that it stuck out about a quarter of an inch more than the normal tile so we had to grind it down to fit the jambs:

And then the house being 60+ years old, the walls were far from plumb (about 1-2 inches off) the Shower Line doors use a metal "receiver" for a jamb that you slide the part that holds the glass into, this allows you to level your door and adjust for it being out of plumb.
Here is a picture of the top of the shower door, you can see about an inch+ at the top where the glass holder is extended from the jamb.

And then at the bottom where the glass holder is almost flush with the jamb itself:

The end result though, you would never be able to tell if I didn't point it out:

Oh I think that myth will only continue to exist and be perpetuated by that fear Jumar. We had a lot of good oyster times before the ending. *Kissy Kissy* is definitely a good memory.
Comment 20 May 2016
Yeah, I've never seen a truly frameless door, I had one that the actual door itself was only hinges but then the panel next to it had a frame. I use Shower line doors and they give you a whole bunch of room for error, which is good because none of the old houses I work on are square, plumb, or level.

Never personally used it but it looks good and I know a good installer who swears by it. I think it's like anything else in that it will only looking as good as the person putting it in. I saw that backsplash, you should be good to go
