  1. hi we need the Beacon hill Doll House instructions can you help us





    1. fov

      You can contact Greenleaf about replacement instructions: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/about-us/greenleaf_dollhouse.html

  2. Hey can you post the Harrison instructions. I spilled water on mine!!

  3. Name something You Can Not Live Without 7/10/08

    Love. If it weren't for that, life would just be dead. There really wouldn't be any reason to even exist.
  4. broke my dang toe today

    Sorry about your toe. I've done that before and boy does it hurt when you stub it against something! I just broke my index finger at work yesterday. It got crushed between two things that it shouldn't have been inbetween. It could have came off completely, but it just kept fighting to stick with me! Now its all black and blue.
  5. are you walking or bike riding more?

    It will get better and you will love yourself for it. I started riding for fun last summer. I put hundreds of miles on the bike, and rode to work the same 2 miles you are doing. This year, I have moved a lot further and am doing 10 miles one way to work. I try to ride to work half the time. Your legs will get sore, but once they get stronger, you'll be amazed at your metbolism shooting up and being able to keep the weight off. Did I say ice cream??
  6. CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. Basically setup and operate large machine tools that run from user input software and codes.

  8. Might be admitted to hospital

    Best of wishes Traci. I hope you get everything under control. Health problems are the worst as in they leave you in a state of limbo physically, emotionally, and financially. Just keep your chin up and remember you have a lot of people rooting for you. Just relax and take every moment the best you can and maybe it will all work out for you. Ben
  9. Teaching a young kid old tricks

    No. You're really old if you can recollect how to grease wagon wheel axles with lard! But thats a great story anyways. I remember record players when I was a kid. We would stick the thing in neutral and try to rotate the record at the right speed to make the songs sound the correct pitch - it is harder than it looks. Either that or spin them backwards to see if we got any satanic messages.
  10. shipping costs

    I bought a couple of CD's off television once and payed around $19 for them. The shipping added an additional $15 or so dollars for two small compact discs. It amazed me that they charged so much. I think they have the accounting worked out so that they can hide some form of the profits or margins into the shipping costs so that the prices don't sound so high for the actual item. An average person would tend to not separate the two costs and think they are still getting a good deal even though the shipping is quite high.
  11. Above ground pools

    I had a 12' one. The first season we realized the filter/pump was under rated. We invested in a larger pump and sand filter. That made a big difference in the water quality, and the ability to maintain chlorination. The blow up ring leaves a lot to be desired. Ours had a hole that we could not find, so we constantly had to blow it up. The vinyl used for the bottom and sides seems to be ok. You really need to spend the time to make sure it is level. Either use some form of extra padding underneath if you set it up on concrete or spend some money on sand if you are setting it up in dirt/grass. That will protect the bottom quite a bit. Other than that I used mine for 3 seasons. Covering the entire thing and cleaning it each spring is also a good idea to make it last.
  12. designing doll houses

    I think its probably best to strike out on your own, or you could design some for an existing company and sell them the designs. I am creating one for the people here at the forum right now. I asked Dean if he would like the design, but because of it's size (similar to the Garfield), he said that it would be cost prohibitive. (Lots of investment in dies and such). Larger houses are not the best sellers. However, I am going to complete the layouts and plans completely dimensioned with a set of instructions on the order of assembly. It's pretty complicated in that everything must fit precisely using tabs and slots. I design the whole thing in 3-dimensions using AutoCAD, but I am sure there are other newer and cheaper software that would work. I have so far the wire-frame rendition of the house. It's a 2 story craftsman styled bungalow with 9 rooms. It's hard to see in this picture, but all the pieces are there (probably a hundred or so, haven't counted). I will be dimensioning them next and then doing the instructions. Stay tuned.

  14. First Date

    I am not saying that he will be your perfect match - I don't know either one of you, but if a guy likes you, he's probably not lying about it. Just trust that he's into you and accept that if he weren't he'd probably be doing other things. Take advantage of the situation, there's plenty of women out there who'd love to be in your shoes.
  15. Rant: Why is it so hard to meet new people??

    A sense of humor can make the worst of times tolerable. You should see me laugh at myself.
