Then there are those certain power outlets in a room that activate by a switch near the door. Notice that there is seldom rhyme nor reason to the location of the power outlet. I was especially amused by the switch that controlled the power outlet directly below. Which, ironically, is where the lamp was placed. I could as easily switch the lamp on at its base as to use the wall switch.
There was that nastiest of all phrases “aesthetically unpleasing appearance”. As beautiful as the log homes were, I would not tolerate an aesthetically unpleasing result. I would wait and watch for the perfect solution.
Before starting any demolition job in your house, take steps to minimize the mess. Lay down plastic and contain the area you will be working in. Keep your tools confined to the work area as well. Demolition is a messy job and having to clean a mess throughout the entire house can take hours of extra time.

First, we knew that the dogs would scratch it with their nails and that the kids would be rough on it too. Who wants to spend all that money for a beautiful floor only to have it damaged right away. My wife was watching a home improvement tool and they were using vinyl flooring, this vinyl flooring looked like real wood. The show said it looks like it would hold up to many years with dogs and kids. We took this job on ourselves and installed it over the course of 3 days. The install was so easy and fast. More on that later.
The Dan Patrick Show has become the most innovative of the televised sports radio shows and DirecTV 101 makes the most of the production of the show. The show also includes live “Look ins” during commercials that give insight into questions to be asked of the next guest and reviews of the previous guest or topic off the radio air. The Dan Patrick Show can be seen on DirecTV 101 three different times during the day, 9:00 AM-noon, noon-3:00 PM and 4:00 AM-7:00 AM, all times are Eastern. Yes that is nine hours of the network’s 24 hours of programming.
Before The Dan Patrick Show on DirecTV’s 101, the sports radio/television genre progressed in leaps and bounds with Mike and Mike in the morning. Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic are entering their 10th year together as a sports radio team and have been on television since 2006. The show brings live guests into the studio daily and with ESPN behind them, their list of options is never ending. They have a lot of live remote locations scheduled every year, which adds to the flavor of the show. The two keep it fresh and are usually opinionated on most issues that don’t insult their employers (ESPN & ABC).
Finally, another current cartoon series character gets my nod for humorous mom. Peggy Hill on “King of the Hill” deals with underachiever on Bobby and propane salesman Hank who is not extremely open-minded. She likes to try things such as teaching Spanish, buying a book store and entering into a partnership. Peggy is funny but she is also kind and she is always supportive of her family.
