Yeah, my church buys its donuts (which are served every Sunday at three services) from The Donuttery.

Nice.

Crafted Donuts are specialty donuts, to be sure, but like designer cupcakes, they're waaaay

Here in Lakewood, my McD's still has the self-serve station for drinks, so I and I alone control how much ice I get or how many refills I take.

Don't worry, you can still put too much ice in, and then sue

I thought Ma Bell did a fine job--much better than Time Warner, that's for darn sure!

While at the gym yesterday morning, saw streaming across the bottom on FOX News, majority of millennials don't believe in capitalism. So yes, maybe we are morphing, or at least our future generations are morphing.

Yesterday, I stopped at a new donut shop. ... I fully expect to see an "out of business" sign in their front window soon.

The Yelp reviews are overwhelmingly positive though. Better than "The

You can not occupy a dwelling or a business and not have water and sewer.

Where I live each lot owner has to pay the city for water, sewer, and trash pickup. Even if there's not any structures on the lot, and no water or sewer lines

Those jets would be above the solar blanket if I were to let the solar blanket float on the surface of the water.

Hmmm... good point. Redneck-able, though. On our pool those jets screw into a socket with a

Yes, I would never go with the idea of filling the pool with heated water. I'll take about three days to fill with a hose.

Why not? Isn't three days about the period of time you said was available? And that BBQ

Any solution that requires 30 hours isn't going to work at all, because all the heat being added to the pool throughout that 30 hours isn't still going to be there at the end of the 30 hours. We need more BTUH input than the pool

My neighbors to each side of me have tankless water heaters. They could supply a good quantity of hot water.

For this purpose, it makes no difference whether the heater is tankless or tank style. Only the BTU

The other question is what is the temperature of the inlet water and what temperature do you want the pool’s water to be when you finish filling it and DW dips her toes into it?

He already posted that information.

Our pool is 13,000 gallons — Radish

My pool is 20,000 gallons.


So it would take 31 hours with the size water heater I have, or as long as 93 hours with a more typical water heater. Still might be

Most hoses also say "non-potable". Why would they add the warning about hot water if they already have said not to drink from your hose?

Dunno. Maybe they're worried that with hot water it will soften and

Maybe I'll just change the order to diffused glass and not worry about perfectly clear glass.

Clear sounds neat, but then you see all the spotting.


Good plan.

Another problem is that every garden hose I've ever seen says not to run hot water through it.

I'm pretty sure that's only if you're going to drink the water. Or if you want the hose to last a very long
