Master Bathroom Refresh

*this post is brought to you in partnership with PaintCare. It’s been a few years that I’ve wanted to give this bathroom a refresh but finally got around to completing phase one! I started with a design plan two weeks ago, ordered all the materials and fixtures, then installed them all last week. I decided to break up this remodel into three phases, first tackling the vanities, then the flooring and bathtub, and finally the walk in shower. It was too expensive and inconvenient to lose use of the...

Merrill Conversion Model 1841 Mississippi Rifle – VIDEO

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In 1858, Congress passed the Army Appropriation Act in an attempt to “get with the times” in terms of arms advancements. They had only recently implemented the conversion of flintlock arms to percussion earlier in the decade, and European countries had begun to pass us by and move into the breechloading era. One of the ways to move forward under the 1858 act was to have traditional muzzleloaders converted to breechloaders. There were a variety of different methods out...

Auto suggest in user field

I have created my own column to indicated the genre of a book. I manually enter the names such as "mystery" or "suspense" or "Alt History." All are one or two word entries.

Sincere thanks
