Oh yes, the valance...now I see. TOTAL BARGAIN hahaha.

I’m surprised u remove drapes during prep...hanging drapery is actually hard to do right, even designers hire a specialist to be sure its done correctly. I don’t touch drapes- they gotta be removed along w/ furnishings...same with wood window valances- seen too many HO complain about painters damaging custom valances trying to paint around um so I just don’t chance it.
I didn't mind removing drapes if they were the cheap ones(under 10k a pair). But seriously, the drapes in most of the homes I did were under $500 a pair , and I certainly wasn't waiting around for the drape people! We were all pretty handy and able to handle standard drapes. At times, when I did encounter more challenging than average drapes, I would call a drape person to remove them.

As my painting career progressed I concentrated more on new construction and commercial/institutional work...I hated dealing with drapes and furniture. And homeowners!!! But I still did some select residential repaint work.

And I certainly would not spend that $50 in one place...I would never be able to save more than a dollar at a time before it would be gone.

By the time you put a little sumpin' sumpin' in the tip jar, I imagine it's hard enough to make it out the door of the local SoCal Starbucks for under $50

Congratulations fauxlynn on the Ravens win over the Niners! Now, I'll be on my way. I've got a hand to repair and a new TV to buy.

I'm predictin' purple is gonna win the color of the year...and I'm not talkin' Vikings!

Jackson's been unstoppable. If Belichick can't figure him out, nobody can.

I think the Niners proved Jackson is indeed stoppable. But as a team, the Ravens are strong, determined, and supported by great coaching. Both teams are 10 and 2.

This season is far from being predictable.

Yeah Cleveland was the other team that beat Jackson and the Ravens. I don't think they could do it now.

Any given Sunday,right?

And you never know what Brady and Belichick have up their sleeve...even after all these years. The Raven / Pats rematch is a game I look forward to. Hopefully they meet up in the playoffs. We'll see exactly what Brady has left.

Your hand?

(I’m actually only loyal to Da Bears, Cubs and the Blackhawks)

Baltimore has a great team and the fans bleed purple for sure. Gotta give ‘em that. Even the rats bleed purple.

He’s a flash in the pan. Give it a couple years.

I don't think his running game will be able to hold up long term, but his throwing has come along since the beginning of the year. Right now he's looking good, although not his greatest game today. I think he'll keep going for the remainder of the year tho. I hope he doesn't, I'm a Pats fan (don't hate, since the 70's) and I'm sure there is a strong chance that will be the game that decides which AFC team heads to the Super Bowl.

If the Pat's play the Ravens for the title the Ravens will win. The Pat's offense is really bad...I never thought I would be able to say that. Brady has one receiver and even when the others are open he seems to be way off the mark. And this is coming from a long time Pat's fan from MA.

Yes, I have little doubt the Ravens would win a rematch, but until watching last night's game I was fairly confident the Pats would make it to the AFC championship game. Now, not so much. I agree with your assessment. I won't be surprised if Brady hangs it up after this season.
