You could step up and take charge.  All they need is a leader.  Tell them where to be, when to be there and what to bring.  We could run Ginn's shoes up a flag pole to signify the rally point.

Their French onion soup is pretty dang good Oyster... I have my doubts.

I'll drop some off at halftime one of these Saturdays when the playdate is at your house.  I'm pretty sure I can make it to your house, leave it on the porch, ring the bell and be back on my way in no time.

Don't doubt my onion soup. Jeremy.  I also worked there, so I know what their secret is and I perfected it.

I think what you mean is that there will probably be time for JTF and me to step in when we drop our kids off for Mrs. Oyster and you to watch. I still can't believe she was so gracious to volunteer to do that...

In fact this works out perfect. JTF, we can probably just leave one of our vehicles at Oysters and take one vehicle down to tailgate. You're the best Oyster!!

HS
joethejester's picture

The gender of the child is determined by the amount of time between the act and ovulation.  Sperm that become males are faster "swimmers" however sperm that become girls are active for up to a day longer.  If you are trying every day it is much more likely that you would get a girl.  If you abstain for 3 days then time up your activity to ovulation it is 85% chance or so that you would get a boy. 

Also, If you are an anesthesiologist, (because of the chemicals) or in extraordinarily high stress environment you are likely to have girls because they are hardier.

I can make pretty good homebrewed beer.  I lost interest in doing it though, because there is a lot of cleaning and my kitchen is small and the wife doesn't like the smell when I'm boiling the wort and even though you may eventually make it cheaper than buying beer there is a ton of capital outlays (which seem to go on and on because you are always wanting new bigger pans, better equipment, storage,  etc, etc.) and you can buy good craft beer for $10 a 6 pack which is much easier.

Knowing that I can do it is good enough for me until maybe someday I move into a bigger house with a second kitchen area of my own.

I'm currently working on renovating my second house, this one is 100+ yrs old

My second house was from 1890, located on Goodale Park in Victorian Village. Generally, I think you'll find the craftsmanship from that time far exceeds anything from the 1950s to present. However to your point, it isn't the original builders but rather the idiots that laid hands to it over the next 100 years or so. 

I was lucky in that someone had already renovated the property one time in the 80s providing updated plumbing and romex electric cables. 

I am currently restoring a 1950s modern era home in Old Dublin. It is 10x worse than the Victorian Village home was, and we're currently taking our licks on it but it will turn out beautifully. This was towards the end of demo (also right before Baby07/10 showed up, Mrs. 07/10 is a trooper)

Day 1:

Near completion of demo / ready for sheetrock:
Also i spend an inordinate amount of time searching for the tools that i just had in my hand a minute ago.

it isn't the original builders but rather the idiots that laid hands to it over the next 100 years or so.

you're absolutely spot on. Its the retrofit and hackjob remodels that have been done in between that will drive you crazy. Our place is circa 1901 in the Italian Village. Tons of work but also incredibly rewarding.

I have to disagree re: 1950's.  I've renovated 5 homes from 1910, 1951, 1951, 1953, 1963.  The homes from the 50's (in DE) are the best built homes by far in my experience.

Reasons:
1) The have relatively modern wiring with grounds and proper insulation

2) The are usually brick/stone all the way around

3) They have garages connected to the house (often without a door to the actual house - fixable)

4) They have plaster over some type of mortar over what appears to be drywall which never cracks - no lathe 

5) The tile work is amazing other than the fact that they seemed to love pink and black

6) The lumber is pretty uniform but still over-built by today's standards

HS
osu07asu10's picture

Most of the reasons you've stated revolve around style and design, not construction. However,

Reasons:
1) The have relatively modern wiring with grounds and proper insulation

Hmm. That is interesting and I disagree.

Romex (non-metallic) wire we know today was not used in that era. 1950s homes were an era where low voltage wiring was popular for light switches. Also a period where aluminum wire was still popular with metal, paper, and fabric sheathing that was braided and usually without a ground wire that ran to a grounded main panel. Ground wire (and sizing) became standard in the mid 60s.

The 70s brought the PVC sheath or jacket and that became required in the mid 80s.

Add to it the increased need for capacity with today's electronics and wiring from the 1950s is inadequate for most homes, and can also be unsafe. That doesn't touch on improvements in code for safety (installation, separation of kitchen appliance circuits, HVAC, W/D, GFI outlets, etc)

HS
CC's picture

7/10 - In the homes i had the wiring was similar to romex.  3 wires in 1 bundle, the grounds were smaller guage, but the hot and neutral were 12 and 14 guage, the same as today.  The only differences were smaller diameter grounds (in some but not all) and they had a braided external jacket but it was always in good shape in my experience.  They had some type of wax or tar mixed in the braid which keeps in from splitting.  Another good thing about 50's house (that I had) was that they had poured foundations and modern framing.  I think aluminum didn't start until the mid 60's.  I've never seen it in my homes other than 1 circuit clearly added after the fact.

Now my current house (1910) had 5 different types of wiring in my bedroom alone (modern exterior romex, commercial flexible metal conduit, ungrounded faux romex (similar to mentioned above, sans ground) and knob and tube.  We removed all the plaster in the entire house and ran new wiring, plumbing etc.  Every stud in this house looks hand cut, it's balloon framed and the foundation is made of clay block common to this area.  The way I described this house was that it had all the things you couldn't change (location, water, high on a hill etc) but none of the things you could change (wiring, plumbing, dock etc).

Good luck with your projects.  I'm happy to say I have no plans to move for a while after about 15 years of renovations straight.

I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.

I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets. I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.

I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat 400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.

I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four-course meals using only a Mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prize-winning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.

I have a wife, two kids, and a business, so my band playing days are over for a while. I actually have very little interest in playing out anymore after I quit drinking years ago. I really just do it to keep my skills up until I eventually have the time to start recording it all. I have a ton of original material that I hope to one day put all together.

I have been doing some weird experimental blues-metal-funk fusion stuff here the last several years on my 7 and 8 string guitars, trying to find out the sound I want to get with an extended-range. I don't like to down-tune so I started adding strings. I think I have pretty much settled on the 7-string guitar. I can get alost everything I want out of a 7-string so I play it 75% of the time.

I have a lot of friends back in Ohio that I grew up with that are excellent musicians. One day I hope to get them all together and start a local super-group.

D-Day0043's picture

I've got a 5-string bass, I don't really like it that much. Realistically, every string that you go lower is only adding 5 notes to the instruments overall scale unless you down-tune.

Constantly switching tunings on your instrument is not good for the neck. Remember, your instrument is made of wood and it constantly expands and contracts due to the environment. It can mess up your intonation, and you will constantly be adjusting it. Another tip; always try to use the same gauge strings.

On guitar, you can use it to get different tones, but on bass you really don't need that.

The F# on an 8 string guitar is so muddled that it really isn't worth having. Plus, at that point on the scale you can simply move what you are playing up an octave to get the same thing.

I fancy myself a decent fisherman. I have a 8 1/2 pound largemouth mounted that I caught up in Columbus on what use to be private property(think its a public park now).Not really a record or anything but considering it was caught off of refugee rd. in the hood the thing was a monster. Also really enjoy cat fishing at night on the river. My record so far down here on the Great Miami river is a 63 pound shovel head.Again not a record setter by any means but factor in I was fishing 20 ft above the water on a huge concrete platform and caught him right below a monster dam with very high current and a shit ton of obstructions it was quite a feat just to net him. Fishing is good for your soul.

The best part was watching 150 people try to do it afterwards.
