    SheetWise All Beach -- No Water.

    Reminds me of a story I heard about the Mustang Ranch outside Reno Nevada -- a well known brothel. During renovations they had a sign outside that said "Closed. Beat it."

    Happy. But not without a price ...

    We just got back from a week in Jamaica and it's still there. He won't look me in the eye so I'm guessin' he hasn't called the satellite company yet. I'll give it awhile then accidentally knock it off the roof white shoveling snow.

    How many hits do you think it will take (after retracting the lag screws first, of course (takes a 7/16" spanner if you have 1/4" SAE lag screws))? And don't bend your shovel!
    3m 5200 will make a good seal to protect the holes from rotting out.

    Don't knock it off the roof, just knock it's alignment out. That's way more annoying and he can't really prove anything. You could move it two degrees every day.

    Property owner in a FL trailer park added some privacy fences to the property. One blocked the view around a corner and nearly caused a couple of accidents. Each week we took one board of the end and moved the post. he never caught on. We also tipped it over and cut a few inches off the bottom once to keep the proportions looking right. It ended up about 2/3 the size of the original.

    Buy a shotgun and 'accidentally' shoot a big hole in the thing.

    Is the thread only 6mnths old? Its seems to me I read this years ago.
    Scary! I think the belt that drives my brain has slipped a tooth.
    Or, gravitron theory is at work. Except thoughts have indeterminate mass.
    I am certain this threads timestamp has been altered.

    Yes, what did happen with the dish? The future of mankind may depend on it.

    All's well that ends well, sorta. The dish got moved and the roof repaired by the installer. Sneaker lil' f*cker that he is. He bitched and moaned about not getting paid for the R&R. I said too bad so sad had you done it right the first time doofus!
