Elmer Fudd Ripped Me Off

Last week I tweeted, “Elmer Fudd just ripped me off!” and I never followed up on that. I have to tell you, I was angry. I don’t often get angry, but I feel like Elmer Fudd ripped me off! Why “Elmer Fudd”? Well, that is the name that came to mind when I had a


I Got Weeds

I was looking for something to update this blog with and decided to tell the world I have weeds in my mulch. But then I went to Google Images to find a good picture of [weeds] and got something that I should have known I would have seen. Got writers block – sorry.


I Got A Bird Problem

I have a bird problem. I got birds living around the front of my house. Using my house as theirs. I guess I deserve it. Over the years, I have been part of killing several birds. Some by window, some via airplanes and some even died from cocaine overdoes. So I guess I deserve it.


I Spackle & Paint Also

I recently installed a baby gate upstairs and it turned out that I needed wall anchors. I messed up and one of the anchors I used made a big hole in the wall. So I bought myself some spackle and paint and closed up the four holes I made in one wall and made four


My First Experience With a Circular Saw

On Friday, we had new carpeting installed in our home. I came home to find out that the closet door in the hallway would no longer open. The carpeting was above the bottom of the door so it simply couldn’t open. The carpeting guys did not tell a newish home owner that the door had


Baby Proofing

Yesterday, I spent a portion of the day baby proofing my house. Pretty much, all the electrical sockets have a baby proof piece of plastic insert. Many of the kitchen and bathroom floor level cabinets have those baby latches. And some of the drawers have those clamps, as shown in the picture above. I also


Remote Control For Niko OTP-3211W 32″

Well over three years ago, I bought a no-brand LCD TV from Niko. The company is now out of business, but the TV is actually still very good quality. However, the Niko rebate was a scam, the TV is solid. The TV I purchased back then was the Niko OTP-3211W 32″ and it was pretty


Home Air Filters Delivered on a Schedule

Ironically, this is not the first time I am blogging about air filters. Before I start, I should disclose that I am a partial owner in the company I am writing about – so yes, it is something that is awesome. 😉 RustyBrick recently launched a site named On Time Air Filters – guess what


Building the Snap Sukkah

As you know, Sukkots is around the corner. I got my Lulav & Esrog and I have built my Sukkah. I bet this is an interesting for non-Jewish people to see Jews practicing (people shaking trees and fruits and living in a temporary house, outside of your real house – real weird, no?). In any


My Sukkah in Google Sketchup

A couple days ago, I built my Sukkah using Google’s CAD like software named Skechtup. It basically allows you to design full 3D models, including homes, towns, etc. So I decided to teach myself how to use it and within hours, I had built my own Sukkah. A Sukkah is a temporary home used by
