    • The Coming Homelessness and Hunger Apocalypse in America
      So, in June 30 percent of Americans couldn’t make their rent. July 25th, federal eviction protection ends. There may be another check, but another $1,200 (or even $2k) isn’t going to cut it, just as people couldn’t pay rent event with the $600 unemployment benefit top-up.

Adventures in home maintenance: what not to do

1.) If your bathroom has a popcorn ceiling, never tint your ceiling paint slightly blue because if you ever need to repaint, it will take three coats of paint to cover it up. And once you roll on that first swipe of white paint, there is no going back.

2.) You know those little decorative screws that attach the lighting fixture to the metal bracket behind it? Yeah, well those suckers are slippery and before you manage to climb down from the counter without breaking your neck to retrieve it, it will have rolled into some inaccessible space. They are the work of the devil.

3.) Don’t store your replacement vinyl plank flooring in your basement where it can be covered by 8 inches of sump pump backup water during a hurricane, rendering it unusable. This is especially painful when the basement floor is the thing that needs to be replaced.

4.) Buy a ladder that actually reaches. Conversely, don’t buy a house with a living room that has 14 foot ceilings. The roller extension isn’t long enough.

Your turn.
