  1. I don't post on here much, but when I saw there was a Cuban joint nearby, I had to go try a Cuban sandwich. Having eaten authentic Cuban food while working in Florida, I didn't get my hopes up. I met the owner, super nice guy and I can tell you, he makes it like the Cuban's do. The sandwiches were great, the blackberry cobbler was also great! I'll definitely be going back for more.
  2. Our cousin and friend Sgt. Chad Eppinette of the U.S. Army served 2 tours in Iraq and was shot and received a purple heart but came home to an emotional battle that none of us will ever fully understand took his own life last July. He left behind a son, wife and family that miss him every day. We tried to get him help but the VA just kept throwing medication at him that only made things worse. There is a documentary coming out made by the code of support foundation and he is featured in it. His wife is in Arlington Virgina right now to promote it and to tell Chad's story. This is a link t
  3. I want to thank you all for your tips and suggestions. This is why I love P.com, if you need help with something there are plenty of people on here to take time out and give you an answer. I am gonna use all your suggestions and I will let you know how it goes. Thanks again
  4. I have knock out roses around one of my trees in the front yard and just bought 3 more to go around the okame cherry tree I planted last year that luckily didn't die. They have done really well but do you think they would do as well over there where they wouldn't get as much sun? I really appreciate your help
  5. Thanks. Didn't even think about changing the direction of the downspout and we are re-mulching this week. It amazes me how thick you can do your mulch and how by the same time the next year so much of it is gone! So is there nothing that we can plant now? Do we just need to wait till fall?
  6. Added this picture to show what I am talking about. The left side of the porch has lots of growth and the right side, nothing but day lilies and if you could see a little further over you would see that the day lilies get smaller the further you go to the right.
  7. okay so for any of my green thumbs on here I have a question.... What flowers and shrubbery does well in highly acidic soil that is mostly shade. So far over the years I have killed azaleas, hydrangeas, gardenias, rhododendrons and a dogwood tree all in this one area of my yard. Needless to say I am about ready to call that area a dead zone and not plant anything else but it looks so lopsided cause the other side of the house where we get a lot of sun is doing well. Lots of day lilies and loropetalums. HELP PLEASE!!
  8. guess the gentle giant wasn't so gentle. Wonder if they will bring someone else back or just have no eliminations this week?
  9. We give the books as graduation gifts also. If I only knew what I know now when I was 18 I would be set!
  10. We take our kids every summer and they have a great time. The water is not too deep but it is a good place to relax and let the kids play. It is family owned and they are very nice people.
  11. Remove the valve completely and a metal recycle facility will take them, and probably give you a few bucks for the value of the scrap.
  12. Agreed, they've done two cars for me and they both turned out great. Price was good as well, good people and good work.
  13. I have a friend that has hers done and she said it took a year before she could sleep on that side comfortably. Good luck!
  14. For the 2nd time in a couple years one of my kids put something in the toilet. Called GLT again and they were out here within a couple hrs and got us fixed up. Their customer service is so good and the technician they sent out was very nice. After having some not so good experiences with contractors it is so refreshing to deal with a business like GLT. Thank you!!
  15. We have a website that we use. It pulls a credit report and background check. You use the tenants info from their application and the site sends them an email to verify that we were given permission to get the information.
  16. We are excited about our host daughter Isabella too!! Can't wait till she gets here. My daughter has already been messaging with her and the whole family is really happy about having a new member of our already very large family I would encourage everyone to give this experience a chance. Our host daughter is so excited about coming to Georgia and now that I have gotten to know her it is a very sad thought to think she might not have had this chance had we not decided to give this a shot.
  17. Well I want to thank you all for the very good opinions and advice. He has not called back so it may not really matter on this one but it will all help if I ever face this issue again. And if you know of anyone that needs a 3 bed 2.5 bath house in Dallas with all new paint, counter tops, carpet and appliance for 950 a month shoot me a pm. Thanks!!
  18. All good points and things I am checking on now.
  19. I agree. It is just something I have to dig a little deeper into. I know he said he is not on probation. If he is just a back porch toker that got caught I can be sympathetic to that. But I also know that sometimes, hell most of the time, you don't get the whole story from people, felon or not.
  20. He told me he was staying in a hotel for 100 a night and that is why he wanted to move quickly.
  21. That's what I was thinking. I remember the last time my brother got out my dad paid for 6 months up front for an apartment. He screwed up 2 months later and went back to jail but it was no skin of the apartments teeth......they got to keep the money!
  22. The question posed by my husband and others is if he has been locked up and only out for 6 months, where is he getting 7 grand from? Is that a plausible question to ask him? He said prior to his arrest he has 7 years of good rental history which is one of the things I will def be checking. He also said he has bad credit which is nothing new from the credit reports I have pulled for other tenants.
  23. We have rental homes and I got a call today from a guy that wanted to rent one of our homes. He was convicted of possession of marijuana and served his time. He has been out for 6 months and is willing to put up 3-6 months rent and the security deposit. What would you do personally? I have a brother that has been in and out of trouble so coming from an emotional point of view I would hope that someone would give him a chance. But that is the problem. This is business and emotions have to stay out of it. So that's why I am here. What is your opinion/suggestions?
