Checked the old thread (Blazing Ridge Cinema) this AM, it hit one MILLION views biggrin.gif over the last week or so. Amazing. It only took like seven years tongue.gif . Still don't know why it was so popular. And now I don't even have a theater (yet). Sandman's thread continues to amaze me.

Why is it that I'm getting targeted on this forum for L'OREAL hair color ads? Don't they know I'm stuck with this "pink" color? biggrin.gif

We understand that you've been shopping for hair color in other tabs while you browse the forums...

... No, I get those ads too.

A HA!! I made this post and got pummeled, so you've been warned, Bud!

Now, all I get are cool ads with sportscars, weapons, vacation destinations with hot bikini-clad women and . . . .uh . . . ah, forget it ... I'm seeing the same hair color ads from L'Oreal and Maybelline. :-(

EDIT: This morning it was Lilly chocolates and learning about current successful celebrities who were once on the food stamp program - huh?

Been out of town the last two weeks or so. Had some vacation and maintenance time planned at our cabin in the North GA mountains, but it turned into more work than anything. Between not having any water initially, to snow delaying workers, to the windows not getting installed, to a failed and leaky water pump, it was an adventure. After all that I ended up go to DC (Gaylord National) for a conference and was sick as a dog. I ended up turning around and coming home and crawling into bed for two days. Heading into work this morning after about being two weeks behind. Looking forward to that.

Hopefully I'll be doing SOME work in the basement this weekend, but not 100% back yet.

All quiet on the western front. Been out of town and will be in and out the next three weeks or so. Did gets some wire ordered and delivered, but have not been able to get in the basement the last couple of weekends.

Anyone had knee replacement surgery? I'm at that point where I have to make a decision. Not an immediate rush, but have cortisone shots in both knees every three months (he said they last 3-6 months, I get about 2.5 out of them). The right knee is shot, the left is bad, but seems to be tolerable with shots. I'm thinking about doing it in the fall - hoping to at least get through the drywall stage. smile.gif Would be nice to have theater done so I can rehab in it, but its downstairs and I'm a ways off. smile.gif

My Grandmother had knee replacement surgery with awesome results.

After she had it done and it healed she told me that she wish she would have had it done a LONG time ago...

That's my only second hand experience with it. Wish you the best man.

Thank you sir.

That's the problem - I don't know anyone my age (a mere 49) that's done it. I've heard alot about the older folks. I really don't want to wait until I'm 70 to do it and suffer for the next 20 years, but supposedly they're only good for 20 years, which means I may have to do it twice - or go to Auto Nation for replacement parts. smile.gif The shots are great, but only work two thirds of the time. I'm thinking about doing it this fall. Maybe. I'll have to do a bunch of planning ahead to make sure I can do it.

Same here.....all I can tell you is that my (60-ish) brother had it done in Jan 2012 and his golf game has come back!

Bud,

Had a friend have both knees replaced in his mid 40's. He is doing fine on them and is now 59.

Thanks Bob. That's encouraging. I expect the technology has changed quite a bit since then. I know they were only good for 15 years or so back then, Now they're good for almost twice that I think. The wife and I are trying to do some planning and I'm now committed to doing it,its just a matter of when is the best time (never a good time).Could be as early as mid - June. Don't know yet.

I think It's need some additional parts besides the knee for that to happen, Tom. smile.gif

Might as well get both of them done at the same time... Don't want the upgraditus bug to strike!

Just sent you a PM but also just noticed that this thread has been around for a while. Still, though, give me a shout sometime if you'd like.

Good Morning Bud
Just caught your home theater post on AVS.
Have built mine and still looking for ways to improve.

Hey Bud
Just watched your video of your home theater. It looks GREAT. Maybe we could visit and get some ideas from each other. Am busy with an art show this weekend, but maybe sometime after that we could get together and see each others home theaters. My number is 986 1981. I'm retired from the post office, so am free just about any time.
Have a good weekend.
Wayne

Wayne,

FYI. I personally wouldn't throw all of my information out there for the public to see. I mean, it's totally your prerogative, but I personally would do that via PM. Bud's marathon builds tend to get A LOT of traffic of which anyone (AVS member or not) has access too. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Agreed, it took me all of about 5 seconds to get the correct area code to the phone number, which in turn got me to an address. I am not going to dig any further, but it only took about 30 seconds total to get this information. Not something that really should be posted out in the open like that as there are a lot of untrustworthy people. Heck, if nothing else you can expect to get more spam emails at a minimum since the phone number wasn't posted with an area code.

Just be careful my friend and realize that we are only trying to help.

I ordered my Nest before they launched, and I've been very pleased with it. I love the ease of use in terms of controlling, setting and editing schedules etc. And I especially love all the data I get so I can make good decisions about saving energy (and $$).

On vacation starting Wed of this week, but basically worked all three days. Here are a few more patio shots. It's done, he just finished up the LED lighting on Wed after some adjustments. I'm going to have him do some additional work in March and add in some more trees and shrubs up on the second tier of the yard.





The area at the end of the seating wall (you see some white PVC sticking out of the mulch/dirt - that' was so I coud run electric over there for future use), this will be used for my wife vegetable garden in the spring. It's got irrigation and everything. I could have put in some annuals, but decided to leave it that way for now. Very happy had it all came out.

A few shots at night (pictures are bad and dont do the lighting justice):



Bud
A few paver questions,
What did they charge you per sf for pavers/walls?

What lighting did they use for the walls? They want a **** load for what seems like an easy install.

I like the fact that I can turn on the heat or air conditioner when in the theater. projectors and people can alter the temp. in the space quickly.

patio looks great Bud!

Yeah, its good stuff. Almost bought another one at Lowes over the weekend, but the last one they had was already open. Next time. I put them in our cabin and its great to be able to turn down the heat/AC after the renters leave (or adjust while they're there even). smile.gif

Here is how he broke it out for me.: 760 sqt feet of patio - 6080.00, 204 sq feet of walkway - 1650.00, 32 feet of wall, 1375.00, lighting cost me 2945.00 (5 inwall lights, 2 in column and 5 path lights) .

The LED light is really expensive. This included the transformer as well.

While its been quiet on the Theater front, it hasn't been quiet. In-laws here for the summer again, arrived a few weeks ago. My father-in-law and I have been working on various things around the house and up at the cabin. I am officially scheduled now for my knee replacement surgery, it's scheduled for July 8th at 8:00. Did all the pre-admissions stuff yesterday and went to the "joint class" yesterday and hung out with a bunch of obese geriatrics looking to get their hips replaced. They even gave us a book called Sex after Your Total Joint Replacement.... popular with this crowd I'm sure.

Tim (TMcG) and others who need to know, the ortho uses the Duprey model for knee parts. If its sorta like going with the Dennis plans versus the DIY route, I don't want to know. smile.gif I'm going to have to redo it again in 20-25 years anyway.

It's the right knee, so out of work for a couple of weeks, then remote for a couple. If this works out, I may go and have the left one done within a year. Of course this thread is worthless without pics. tongue.gif
