    You don't need to worry about the wood too much, but probably should move the dog before you pour the cement. :D

    Hard to tell from the photos, but I'd say EITHER maple gall mites (most likely maple velvet erineum gall--silver maple is a common host), some type of fungus, or a Mg deficiency (in that order). Get...

    I've seen that done, also with vanilla beans and other things. They seem to hold up fine from what I've observed. It'll add to the flavoring slowly for a while at least.

    We've been doing some testing of this. What seems to work (at least for us) is to heat up the syrup, put the material to be infused into the syrup (fresh ground coffee in your case) into a SS sieve...

    I have seen it (CBD-infused maple syrup) on the shelves, and received a small bottle as a gift, but I've not tried it. Since CBD is an oil, it is quite difficult to infuse into maple syrup (oil has...

    Those were the recommended numbers...up to about 1990. We've learned a lot since that time.

    For 5/16" laterals ON A VACUUM PUMP, the rule of thumb is "strive for five, no more than 10." That...

    One other thing...if your cellphone coverage is weak is spotty, a metal roof can kill it or make it worse. Every now and then my phone gps will put me in Indiana or Columbia, South America. ;)

    Metal roofing over shingles isn't a problem as long as the roof can take the additional load (not likely a problem). You may need to trim some of the shingles if they are curled/cupped really badly,...

    I think we're all a bit frustrated by it, however it is the best we have (even knowing there are some problems with it). It will require a little more effort and cooperation from producers for it to...

    Yup...people are afraid of this right up until the time they NEED help, and then they find they can't get it, because, technically, you don't exist (because you haven't reported).

    Story matches well what we've been hearing. Haven't heard a lot out of Quebec as yet. There is an IMSI meeting next week, so we should have a better sense of 2019 production region-wide after that.
