"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


Speaking of fuel, the number one export of the USA right now it FUEL. I had more written but deleted it, my screen started to melt.

I know this is a cookin thread but...I have a problem, I think. I have got to fix the roof on our little camper so I bought some plywood today and some roof sealer that has a 50 year guarantee, like I believe that. I bought the sanded pine plywood from Lowe's, which may be a mistake. I know about houses but this I am not sure of. How much chance is there that this plywood will delaminate used on a flat roof covered with white roof coating. It will sit out in the weather, I hate to throw away the money. I chose not to use EPDM as it forms needle holes from the acid rain here. What do you think?

If it's not exterior glue,I would avoid that ply---does it have a stamp 'exposure one'"?

AB or BC exposure 1 should be on the stamp---The humidity inside the camper will delaminate most interior plywoods---

Like a dummy I didn't check it to see what is stamped on it. I will check. It was kinda hecktic in the store when I got the plywood so I just loaded up and left. I thought about posting in the roofing department but I trust your and Rossi's professional opinion. I opted to use 3/8" to keep the weight down although it only takes 3 sheets.

If the plywood isn't stamped exterior 1 will exchange it. I did think about the humidity in the little camper though.

No kick start. I thought I'd be able to just wiggle my nose but that only works on tv.
Great for Quiditch

....

It's a 'stick' shift.
You have to tell it 'witch' way to go.
Another color option is 'straw'berry red.

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


It went pretty well. It was through the American Heart Association and they teach it quite differently than the Red Cross, where I've always gone in the past.

I took CPR in high school, in college (early '80's) I got my EMT certification and have taken CPR once a year over the past 14 years, for daycare licensing. And this is the first time I've ever heard an instructor tell the class to NOT check for the pulse of an unconscious person laying on the ground.

My general impression of the class is that they are dumbing it down - teaching fewer techniques, giving less information/facts and simplifying it as much as possible.

Other than that...

I don't suppose he gave a reason for not checking someones pulse...I can't imagine why not
