Today si the 70th anniversary and the youngest of the soldiers were supposed to be at least 18 so the youngest surviving soldier would be 88. Of those few who remain , many pass every day. The greatest generation is almost gone. They really were heroes. Continue Reading

They tell you when you e file - which is the quickest way to file - that it will take 3 weeks. It has not been 3 weeks since Jan 30th yet - well today I guess is 3 weeks. Continue Reading

I have always used semi gloss paint and have never had this issue. It sounds to me like the OP either used an incorrect roller cover or tried to stretch the paint too far and did not put enough on. Using semi gloss paint does not make the roller marks show. Continue Reading

I have a cousin who loves to travel and she can't wait to go there. Continue Reading
