2/3 of the way through winter probably sees lots of pent-up problems surfacing, hence the influx of googling and joining DIY forums. At least that's what caused me to join.

I've caught a few spammers on here, lately.
Mostly - they like all the good advice that we give -
We're also "cuter" than most people!!
