    When your heating oil tank runs dry...

    Electric space heater? I know the heating oil companies will charge a small fee (like $25 or so) to "prime" your oil system if your tank is dry, I have recently just moved into a new house that has natgas so my only experience with oil is the previous house and only for 3 years and I...

    How to buy and install Fiberglass?

    if it's just for sound absorbing reasons, they do make sound barrier specific baffles and material, but not sure if it's cheaper than fiberglass insulation. you can google it.

    How to buy and install Fiberglass?

    I'm no expert but I've done fiberglass before. Is this primarily sound insulation or for heat insulation, it sounds like you'd like a little of both. If it's just heat insulation, you can get pipe wrap that is easier to install, cheaper, and probably more effective for keeping the pipes warm...

    What I've read but have not tried, is orange peels, I can attes that cats do not like citrus-sy things so rubbing the underside of an orange peel may deter a cat from scratching things. I know I tried one with an orange peel to put it up to my cat's head and he kind of took off so that sounds...

    2014 NFL Season

    I apologize if this has been asked/answered already. I don't follow the NFL too much.. but why don't they all play with the same set of balls?. It seems that each them brings their own set of balls and they use their own set during the game. If they used a similar set of balls on both sides...

    Help! In Power Saving Mode!

    Have you tried to go into your BIOS and check the power saving options in there for some hot-key that you may have accidentally hit? Or worst case scenario, go into the BIOS and do a master reset to reset the options back to the factory default... Jay

    Does anyone offer just internet?

    Good luck, you should be able to call up Concast and threaten to switch fully to Directv or something and they probably will keep extending your "bundle"... Jay

    The Official HTF Cat Thread

    Carpetting which my house in NJ had at the time my cats had fleas is great breeding grounds for fleas and dust and mites and anything nasty that likes to live in a house... Its probably one reason why hardwood floors is quite the rage these days in the real estate market... I think fleas don't...
