Easy Street - 12 replies
I’m wondering how many LJs have ever been on “Easy Street”? I have been on it a few times and could be again but I’d have to go to Port Angles, WA to get there. How many more “Easy Streets” are there in towns and cities scattered around the world? Goggle doesn’t seem to know, so I doubt there are ...

There are some nice carvings, turnings and a small boat in the Expo Hall on the 2nd floor with the art work. They have a few demos too. The lady at the booth said The Puyallup is working towards becoming “the” woodworking show in the NW. That should not be hard to do if we show some interest. All the other shows seem to have pete...

Retaining Wall Question - 59 replies
I’m wondering if I can tap the collective brain power of LJ to find a definition of the grade differential required to determine when a concrete block fence becomes a retaining wall? Obviously one cannot continue to pile dirt on one side to the top of a 6 foot fence and still call it a fence can they? What is a reasonable grade different...

Merry Christmas LJs everywhere! Today my wife and I were shopping for our grand kids Christmas. At the elementary school where she works, 80% of the kids get free lunch. Many of the parents will lose their apartments during the school year and the turn over rate is high, about 30%. Most of our lives, we spilled more on the way to the bank ...
