Been there, done that.  Gawd, that was another life so long ago.  Once upon a time, I changed a piston all by myself in a small block chevy 350 in 90 minutes, popping the oil pan and doing it from the bottom.  79 C-30 1 ton truck so the cross member was not a problem.  Did it right on the floor, no lift or jacks.  Sucker fired right up and ran fine.

Walnut shells, yes.  I remember when they cleaned up the Lorain - Carnegie Bridge (now the Bob Hope Memorial Bridge) over the Flats in Cleveburg back in the early 80's using walnut shells to blast the stone work.  Piles of them everywhere.  Took them 2 or so years. 



Yes, that US 422.  Starts downtown and you can take it all the way to Atlantic City, New Joisey where it ends at the beach shore ...

Thanks !

Beaker's site is great.  Based on that, I agree with you Dave.  A2 seems to be the winner, especially with their anti hack stuff.  Cost isn't the biggest issue, I just want something simple, stable and safe.  My part time gig 1099's me so I can write off against it and not raise too many eyebrows with the P & L statement at the end of the year.  Already talked to my accountant about that.

There isn't much competition out there so placement on searches shouldn't be an issue, either.

I do like Kurt's Vinyl Solutions for an opener.  Very open ended.  

{#Cheers}

I just went through this with website hosts. Do NOT use Hostexcellence. They went from 5 stars to 1 star over the last year or so. Lots of outages and they don't honor their uptime guarantee.
I use GoatDaddy to register my webspace.
I ended up hosting at A2 Hosting. Lots of good reviews and no hassles so far:

  This came up recently and Beaker put up a link to website host reviews.

Try this link.  Might be useful.

   
I don't think HostGator deserves the bad marks they get, but I don't know how wonderful those other places are. I switched to HostGator because GoDaddy's CEO (now gone) was an ass. Godaddy is a lot better as a company now, but their user experience is still a nightmare. I have a couple of Wordpress sites I did for others that I still have to go to GoDaddy to maintain. It's not fun, lots of running in circles trying to find the correct area to make a change. FULL DISCLOSURE: if you click this Hostgator link and sign up, I get $50 bucks! Still, as an occasional user, the Hostgator website makes a lot more sense to me and doesn't suck up a lot of time with just trying to remember how/where to go to make a change (like updating credit card info for autopayments—-yes, GoDaddy even makes that confusing). So just as a non-geek who has a couple of sites up, I think HG is good.

So  anyway: If you do decide to go HostGator, it'd be wonderful if you clicked here before signing up:

Yeah, BHD's right, I forgot the 3 part.  It does work, my blood tests show me up and within normal ranges.  Without it, I'm down to around 5.  Maybe it was the Folic acid tearing up your stomach, I have no problems with straight D3 at all.  Pretty benign stuff.

Maybe I'll have to come down and get you.  You can always take the Big Dog back.  jk, maybe ...

What Kurt said. But vitamin D3.

I have to take 6k units daily because the angle of the sun up here isn't enough to get vitamin D. The side-effect has been Wolverine nails. Good luck.
