Trying to find a great long article on home maintenance


I found this article a while ago. I think I found it while searching soil grading away from a foundation. The article was long, incredible and filled with great advice about general home maintenance. It was on some rather plain looking web page with maybe a blue background. Anyone have any idea what I am talking about?

Wow, I think you should try to remember what your keywords were and start searching again from there.
Your browser should mark any sites you went to already.

Yeah, posting this question is a complete shot in the dark. No web history from back then. I've tried searching all kinds of keywords to no avail, can't remember exactly how I got there. Anyway thanks for checking the thread.

Google ain't not the only search engine in these here towns. Try DuckDuckGo or one of the other semantic search engines. It pulls by relevance not popularity and so forth. I use it almost as much or more.

The link I had to the top seven semantic engines does not seem to work anymore. Here are two to try though.

www.duckduckgo.com

www.kngine.com

As stated, they pull up by relevance not popularity. At least in theory. Good luck.
