The pic is way to close up to convey whether this is good placement or not. Can't see where the table is, can't see how tall it is, can't see what's around it.

Nice. Too bad he didn't celebrate making their name plural.

Is it just me, or is the form not showing up for this contest? It keeps asking me to sign in, which I clearly have done.

Seems like a decent alternative to doing hand-washables in the sink or tub, or the occasional regular wash.

I bought that same Wegner knockoff for $25 at the Edison HS flea market in Alexandria. Found the matching footstool in Baltimore for $40. $250 is wayyy to much.

Hopefully the groove fits the diameter of the base, and not just the radius.

The only thing funnier than this glorified belt is the indignant comments from some of its few supporters. Oh, and the barstool comment from p2. Classic.

I have no direct experience with them, but I've heard good things about this Maryland furniture repair company.

Good explanation, Ulrika. Although I'm pretty sure that drafts are currents of air moving from where it is cold to where it is warmer, not the other way around (because hot air rises and is therefore at a lower pressure than cold air). Otherwise drafts would feel nice and warm, not cold.

I've obviously never lived anywhere cold enough for this to be needed.

But the drafts would occur around window and door frames, wouldn't they, so how does fabric on the wall block that?

I'm not sure I understand how they cut down drafts.

The standard mason jars can be used in place of a blender caraffe--the blade assembly will screw on in place of the lid. They're good for smaller blending applications, such as whipping cream, or for use when your magic bullet is on the fritz.

Honestly, I don't get the love for Cake Love. Having tried and been disappointed by his cakes several times, I'd never use his cookbook.

Mike Judge's The Goode Family had something along these lines. It showed a woman in an organic market carrying a canvas bag that said "An Inconvenient Bag."

A friend who works in management for Crate and Barrel tells me that CB2 has passed on the planned 14th Street location because the rent would be much too high for the store to be profitable.

"my life will confirm every part of this true"

No, your life provides a small bit of anecdotal evidence in support of the study's conclusions. It doesn't confirm anything.

I seriously doubt that all of these outlets are actually wired. Probably just some of them are wired and the live ones are discreetly marked.
