I am tauras Taurus. Gemini Gemini. For those who understand that :) I was a soldier and always will be at heart. I am open minded and blunt. I love to discuss and debate, but I believe that arguing is pointless and doesn't accomplish anything. I am random at times and love to interject sarcasm to lighten the mood. It was once said of me in combat that I made ducky situations not so sucky. :) I will literally chat about anything. Nothing has offended me that bad in 42 years. If it does, I'll say so. There seems to be quite alot I am learning about myself. Let's see where this adventure leads.

    my wife makes me feel like a fool and an ingrate
    I don't know if she even knows she's doing it. But, perfect example was a few minutes ago. She is sick with a bad head cold. She can't breathe thru her nose and it's easier for her to sleep sitting up. When I came to bed, she told me she would vome in later and probably watch tv in bed. At the time I figured I'd be out cold. I was tired. I actually slept awhile. When I got up, I checked on her and she told me she would probably stay in the livkng room and sleep on the couch, if she slept at all and asked me to take our son to school in the morning for the same reasons. No problem. I came back to bbed and decided to get on here. An hour or so later she walks in the bedroom, sees me on ep and … [more]

  • Proper flashing techniques

    Posted on: September 23rd, 2012 at 1:26PM

    Ha! Gottcha! You've got a dirty mind! Shame shame ;°} (me too) I was a roofer and specialty sheet metal fabricator and installer for many years. I am factory trained and certified by many of the larger metal roof manufacturers in the USA and Canada. Proper flashing will ensure that your roof will never leak. The water tightness of a metal roof depends almost entirely on the sealant or caulking. The best thing to do then, take most of it out of the equation. Flashing, in roofer terms, is the metal around the edges to divert water away from the structure or to channel water to a desired location. This is useful information for the homeowner who is not afraid to get up there and do minor repair… [more]
