    Actually the building inspector has to approve it in stages. No, it is not an insert either, It is a gas fireplace. Has 6 different heights for the flames, the speed of the fan, thermostat, other goodies as well..

    Sure won't be able to pay for it from any stock profits either :)

    Not so fast on knowing their trade. Once they put the NEW fireplace in apparently the kid who sold the unit to me is off about an inch. So now i might have to build out the wall an inch, and of course, they say that once i put the mirror around it you will never notice it since the mantle will hide it...

    Here is the link..

    http://tinyurl.com/opm...

    Then click on the link for gas fireplace...then go to 564 space saver..That is how it will look but instead of tile around it we are putting a smoked glass..

    It is actually the 864 clean face.. I think that since this is sitting in a triange the corners are hitting the wall and the unit is too big to recess it like it is suppose to be.

    My glass guy wants to talk to them tomorrow when they come to finish it. Today they were only here about 5 hours and they just removed the old one..

    But the 564 clean face is the look we want. No tile work, no steps.. Looks just like a TV in a wall!! So there talking a double sheet rock to cover all the black.

    The unit is hidden in the wall with the picture of the 564..They seem not to be able to get all of my unit behind the sheet rock they want to put together..

    Well see tomorrow..

    I feel bad for the guys in my attic working on the pipes. But i was amazed how quickly they removed the old brick.

    I stepped outside for a minute, came back in and it was already gone!!

    This sled dog is slowing down in this heat as well..

    You reading those stories brought back the time when my daughter use to have me make up stories. Then she would say "one more dad"

    DC

    Yup, i was blessed to be able to have a big part of my life being able to work my schedule around her . My EX worked with the mentally challenged as a Teachers aide. She was trained as a Legal Assistant but was able to give that career up to have a job where she was home when school was closed.Plus having benefits. Her salary was honestly secondary back then..

    This way i could concentrate on my businesses. I would love to turn the clock back a few decades..

    UH OH.......

    In early Tuesday trade, the Shanghai Composite has tacked another 2.8% on to yesterday's 8.5% tumble.

    A check of other markets finds the Hang Seng down 0.4%, the Nikkei lower by 1.25%, and Australia's ASX 200 off 0.9%.

    WTI crude oil is lower by another 0.9% to $46.95, and gold is little-changed.

    One of the excuses for yesterday's crash in Shanghai was the idea Beijing would pull back from propping up share prices, but the country's Securities Regulatory Commission late yesterday promised to continue to try and stabilize the market and "prevent systemic risk."

    WHAT DAY SHOULD I FILL UP ? STILL NO BIG RELIEF AT THE PUMP....DEFLATION IS HERE FOLKS!! QE4 IS ON IT'S WAY !!

    Enjoy those days, they go by way to quickly. I remember driving my daughter to kindergarten, held her hand up to the school and got a kiss good bye with a smile on her face. Then it was a year later, now just a kiss good bye.

    Soon it was just walking together and a high five.. Then just a wave...Then just let me out of the car here dad, as she walked up to the school with her friends. One chld, one shot at it ...

    Meanwhile after school , almost everyday, picked her up for her horseback riding lessons. Drop her off, ran to ref a game, and back to pick her up.. Prior had to run back to my office and place Accountants to pay for those lessons while she was in school.

    NIGHT TIME...Make follow up calls to see how the interviews went after work,and recruit individuals who could not talk at their desk.. while i was watching Horse racing footage.. Multitasking i think they now call it.

    She is now 27 !! Where did the time go ??

    I forgot to ask... Interested in a Trump winter jacket ? $299 , and if you order in the next 30 minutes i will throw in a key chain for free! It might say Fido on it.. But it's free !!

    A JOKE !!

    Larry and Bob, two friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems.

    One day Larry didn't show up. Bob didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something.. But after Larry hadn't shown up for a week or so, Bob really got worried. However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Bob didn't know where Larry lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.

    A month had passed, and Bob figured he had seen the last of Larry, but one day, Bob approached the park and -- lo and behold -- there sat Larry! Bob was very excited and happy to see him and told him so. Then he said, 'For crying out loud Larry, what in the world happened to you?

    Larry replied, 'I have been in jail.'

    'Jail!' cried Bob. What in the world for?'

    'Well,' Larry said, 'you know Jane, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometimes go?'

    'Yeah,' said Bob, 'I remember her. What about her?

    'Well, one day she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded 'guilty'.

    'The damn judge gave me 30 days for perjury.

    Like i said having my niece ask me made me think. When was the last time a 23 year old spoke about who was running for President?

    Now at the Renegades baseball game Saturday night my daughters boyfriend spoke about Trump and how their friends see him as a change of pace person. He is almost 30 years old. So there's another age group supporting him.

    Plus, i don't think they even know 5 others in the race..This Country might get a big surprise..He even joked that he could be found on the side of the road !!

    This has teeth folks, well just have to see if it lasts.. Way too early in the game... But if he runs on a third party ticket doesn't that guarantee a Democrat wins??
