I didn't bring up the tiles,honestly because I didn't feel like coning back to fix them every three months.


Michael Tust that tape is the best. No bleeds,easy removal,no wall damage. I would buy that tape. I wouldn't recommend it being so wide makes it really heavy....because I put it on my wrist like a bracelet and pull the tape....made my wrist hurt.
Can you tell us what tape brand it was? So I can see if I can bring it in and sell it? Please? I'll be nice.Promise.

Oh you meant the fireplace. Yes it is quite stunning! I think she should charge more for that work though. Quite impressive.

You gotta charge what your market allows. In Columbus you could probably get $30-35 an hour for that kind of work but there is probably only a few people there that could come close to what you have done. And lots of demand as people are doing a lot of restoration work around town. Where I am, you'd be lucky if you could find someone who would even bother to just paint it with anything other then a cheap semigloss.

Here's the plan. You talk me up, I'll send cards so you can hand 'em out. You get a cut for every job you land. We schedule 3-4 pretty close together, I come up , get 'em done. Voila. Money.

I can stay at your place,right?

I just read the other day that Jimmy Superfly Snooka is up on charges in the death of his girlfriend which occurred something like 30 years ago. His lawyer is claiming he's not competent to stand trial due to severe dementia. Wow did he ever not look like he used to in that picture. Time does things.

You're not using Geritol as a mixer with your tequila are you? That may be why you are having a hard time finding a good man.

And the pigeons? Yet another carbon based entity I couldn't care less about liking me.
