    What is the issue with vinyl siding? If siding is applied correctly the house is sealed before the siding is put on. They could get behind the siding but not into the house. What states do you think has the worst issues with these bugs?

    I think in religion kneeling is considered more reverent than standing. Government should consider legislation that mandated that when the National Anthem begins people must kneel and bow their head.

    Management was probably reluctant and wanted to weigh options before bursting into a high rollers suite. Had the mass shooting not occurred the employee might have been paid off and no one would have ever heard about the incident.

    I would think it is a good idea to put camera in your room and hallway. People get ripped off all the time at hotels. Will you be considered a criminal if you put a camera up? Are we the only ones that should be watched? Seems the news is making a big deal about this guys surveillance. On another note. Is it legal to purchase body armor like a bullet proof vest? Why are they everyday uniform for police? Seems like private citizens could benefit from wearing one if they so choose.

    Got the well working the first day I returned. Put a submersible pump in it with a pressurized tank above ground. Right after the tank I put a large 10 inch 20 micron filter to catch the larger debris. I put a Y after the filter so I could run a garden hose directly off the filter or run a hose to my camper. At the camper I put a .5 Micron filter. After I got the water pumping, I shocked the well with some bleach and sprayed the inside of the well casing down for some time with a garden hose. The water was pretty dirty the first couple of days. I did not use filter cartridges at that point because I knew the dirt had all been stirred up and the filters would get prematurely, clogged. After a couple of days the water looked much cleaner. Each day I pumped out over 150 gallons and wasted it. With the filters in place the water is very clean and has no odor. Each day I run the well for an extended period in the morning and evening extracting at least 150 gallons of water each day. I am told that using the water will make the well replenish itself faster than not using it. It has not rained her in over 20 days and no rain is expected in the near future, but I have water everyday. In regards to the house, I have been busy demolishing things from above. I have removed most of the secondary drywall ceilings and the massive blown in insulation. All walls were covered with paneling and Beaver Board. I have removed most of it. I thought it would be best to get everything from the roof down that was not necessary out before I remove the floors on the first floor. It is easier to get things out while on a floor than on the dirt. I have found some areas where termites have devoured areas. I see no signs of active infestation. The place looks better with everything I take out. I brought an auto trailer with me. The first day I went to the dump I was offloading it and a worker came over and helped me. He told me that if I loaded it with a strap or chain under the load he would pull it off with his heavy equipment. All loads since then have had a large strap under and around the load from front to back. The guy hooks up a chain to my strap and gently pulls the entire load off my trailer making the task effortless.

    When I owned my printing company I was audited. When an entity sends in an agent to do an audit they purposely send in someone that has no expertise in your particular business. This person then says you owe this exorbitant amount of tax. It is then up to you the business person to hire your own tax professional and research every particular issue and show the agent why your particular business is exempt from that particular tax. They send in a person that doesn't know the exemptions to inflate the tax owed. Another trick is they do a sample audit of a particular time period. There could be one time situations that happened in that period. Then they determine the tax in that period was x. Then they apply that to the entire time period leaving you with an overwhelming debt. Once again up to you to prove that you don't owe the tax.

    Still alive after a couple of weeks of eating canned meat. Found a water well with water in it. Water is only a little over 20 feet down the hole and about 12 feet deep. The well is encased in a 2' diameter cement prefabricated, stackable style column. I put a Harbor Freight shallow well pump with a check valve. After getting the pump primed I was able to get some water out. Problem is the pump reaches its maximum then won't pump any more water out. I can only pump about three feet of the water about 70 gallons from the well. I am heading back there tomorrow for a couple of months. I have a submersible pump and tank I am going to hook up. I know the well produces. The area I am in is purported to be in an 11year drought and the well still has water. After pumping out 3 feet, the well refills in about half a day. My new neighbor, a nice 70 year old guy that has a farm in PA says he has drilled many wells. He says the longer a well sits the less it produces. He says that if I pump out a substantial amount of water from the well repeatedly the veins that supply the water will once again open up and refill the well faster. Considering that 70 gallons is only 1/4 of the water in the well, there is more than enough for me to get water and probably more than enough for the house. This is obviously an old school well and not a 300 foot drilled well but it is water! I plan to put a 10" canister style cartridge filter after the tank, and another small canister filter at point of use. The small filter I use to use under sinks on the cold water side. That cartridge is rated at removing everything as small as .1 Micron. That is right not 10 micron but .1 micron. I figure at first I will run the well and let it produce onto the ground for a few days without running it dry before putting any cartridges into any of the filters. The house is very appealing from the outside and is big but needs lots of work! All the first floor floors and joists are rotted and need replaced. I tore up all the carpet and rolled it up and put it off to the side. The kitchen first had hardwood floors that got bad so somebody put a layer of OSB and tile over it and then when that went bad they put another layer of OSB and carpet over that. After pulling up the carpet, I had rotten OSB. The 6x6 beams the house sits on are also bad in places. I plan to support the carrying walls from the ground to the ceilings. I will pour footings and put in concrete block piers. I plan to snap lines and cut the wall studs higher up and replace the 6x6 beams with tripple 2x12 and attach a new 2x6 to the bottom of the wall studs. After laying plastic on the crawlspace I will then put 2x8 floor joist attached to the top of the new 2x12 beams thus raising the floor. The house has rough sawn lumber sheeting both on the interior and exterior of all studs even interior walls and is still very plumb. They have wood paneling on all interior walls on top of original "Beaver Board." The original ceilings were over 9 feet from the floor and were also rough sawn wood covered with Beaver Board. In most rooms someone dropped the ceilings and put in drywall. When they did that they ran wiring for outlets, HVAC in the ceilings and then blew in 12" of insulation between the Beaver Board and the new drywall dropped ceiling. All that is going to be removed. Even when I raise my first floor I will have tall ceilings. The house has approximately 1600 square feet on the first floor and has the ability to have over 1000 square feet upstairs. When it was built 1923 I think, they never had living space on second floor. There are no stairs to get up there. The first floor ceiling joists/second floor floor joists are not adequate to support living space and will also need to be replaced. A large decorative dormer sits across much of the front of the house. The height to the peak of the roof is more than 13 feet from the second floor floor joists. I will plan to put in floor joists and support...

    The ironic thing about this message is that it encourages us to seek out a television program named the prisoner. From a realistic psychological level of equanimity, pursuing an impossible goal only adds distress to one's life. I guess it gives a person a purpose. But a rational reflection upon the life of a lifelong pursuit of an impossible goal is fruitless distress. Probably the happiest person in the prison is the one that has embraced it to its maximum and took advantage of every pleasure it still had to offer. The sooner people realize it is better to be in the cart rather than pulling it, the easier their life will be. If the river is endless, why paddle upstream to a utopia that cannot be reached. Freedom is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Why pursue finding the gold instead of sitting back and enjoying the beautiful rainbow?

    This is a serious issue. People wash their hands to remove germs. This is going to be an epidemic with this sort of thing happening everywhere. Government needs to figure out a way to make the American people feel that their soap is safe. If you like your soap you can keep your soap. People should have safe choices. They should be able to freely choose to use the red soap or the blue soap. This is also a good opportunity to form the soap police. There should be cameras in all restrooms. Any person caught leaving the restroom without washing their hands should be fined. But first we must ensure the people that their soap is safe.
