When I had a tub surround replaced several year ago, they put a full sheet of heavy duty water resistant/proof plywood behind it. That way, when we needed to have grab bars installed it didn't matter where we wanted to put them.

Re: Meal Prep Today

Okay, I'm going to see what I can do with it tomorrow. Squash, onions, garlic, ginger, coconut milk, red peppers, limes on hand. Will see what else looks interesting at the market in the morning. I'll probably hold it for dinner on Tuesday, [more]

Re: Meal Prep Today

Re: new A/C?

Re: LBYM Food Choices?

Re: Folks With Less Than $2MM Hurting

I could live pretty comfortably in the US on $2K a month. Of course that's mostly because the house is paid for.
