Re: Milling wheat at home

I have the nutrimill that now sells as the classic. Don’t know much on the newer models as I have owned mine for about 15yrs and use it weekly. I make fresh flour and cornmeal you just can’t use it for oily seeds with the impact mill. The motor quit about 5 years ago and I sent it in and they sent ...

Re: Subaru Forester Limited 2021 actual price paid

Look up the Subaru VIP program, you can get a Subaru 2% below invoice. I just purchased a new Ascent and figured if I can get 2% below for vip I should be able to negotiate slightly lower without. Call all dealers within 150miles and see who will give you the best price. I purchased mine for 3.5% be...

Re: Patio, cover, outdoor kitchen ideas & lessons learned.

I had a stamped concrete patio installed at my last home but decided on a paver patio at my current home. It’s not a question of if but when and how much the concrete will crack. Relief cuts help but you will get more with time. For whatever reason the pavers were cheaper despite how labor intensive...

Re: Cookware (frying pan) for a glass cooktop?

I find it takes too much oil to cook eggs and other foods in stainless. Get a carbon steel pan. One from lodge de buyer or mauviel will last a lifetime and be as nonstick as Teflon after a good season. Use stainless for water or acidic foods and carbon for frying.

Re: Only tool I've ever used to repair a car is a Visa card: Can I replace a Camry Bumper myself?

Camry is about as easy as it gets. All you need is a Phillips screw driver for the clips on the bottom and a 10mm socket on a wrench for the bolts on top and to the fender. I’m a former auto body tech. There will be one 10mm bolt on each side attaching the bumper to the fender in the wheel well. Pop...

Re: Coronavirus (Consumer Issues) How you are preparing?

Went to get groceries in the hotbed of King County, WA and I was the only one wearing a surgical mask (got them in Jan when I saw China doing its thing). People either don't care or don't know. Church service has been moved to online only. Stocked up in Jan and Feb :beer Did buy more pet food recen...

Re: Moving Pods or "Packs" for long distance move

We used upack relocube for our move from Wisconsin to Oregon and it went smoothly. Dropped 3 of them off in front of our garage door, we only used 2 and they don’t charge for unused cubes which gives you more flexibility. Took our time crossing the country going to glacier and Yellowstone so they he...

Re: Used Car on Lot for Year and a Half

I had a 2006 Pontiac Vibe and it was a great car. Has a Toyota engine and it’s the same as a matrix but Pontiac badge. The rear seats also fold flat giving you a large cargo area to haul anything. Take it for a test ride and have it checked by a mechanic but there’s nothing wrong with a vibe.

Re: Fitting three young kids in the car...

I fit 3 diono radian car seats in the back of my Sonata so they should work with a CRV. Eventually you'll want to separate them to stop fighting and minivans are better for 3rd row access. First time one of your kids swings the car door into another vehicle in a parking lot you'll quickly become a c...
