    DEW reacted to philpom in Relocating to North Dallas   
    What would you like to know specifically?  I have been in the area since the 70's.   (Denton, just north of Dallas. 
     
    In my opinion don't move to Dallas but instead move to one of the cities to the north.  There are some great communities from Addison to Frisco and across to Denton south to Lewisville/Carrollton area.  
     
    You will always need to drive somewhere around here, it's very spread out but in the area I outlined you can find a variety of home types and will be pretty close to anything you can imagine. 
     
    The further south of Frisco and Denton you go the worse the traffic.  When I drive in to the metroplex I always use the tollways.
    If you like boating there are several large lakes, if your wife like shopping you'll be in luck, the metroplex has some of the best shopping in this region of the country. 
     
    There are lots of museums,  water parks, amusement parks etc.
     
    Let me know specifically what you would like to know.

    Make sure the house you move into has a newer HVAC system and modern insulation installed.
    You will need both, it gets Africa hot.
    I still can't believe my high school (1968) offered open windows for cooling..but then again the house we lived in had an attic fan system, and no AC.

    Costco has the Classic 2 on the website as a bundle for $999. Not sure if anything extra comes in the bundle.

    DEW reacted to Chuckstergun in I'm confused about the heat deflector   
    When I cook pizza I get the fire going like John Setzler does, place both 1/2 grills on the upper portion of the Divide & Conquer system,  put both heat deflectors on top of the grills, place four 2" spacers on the heat deflector (I use threaded pipe connectors, Home Depot), then put the pizza stone on top of the spacers creating an air space and raising the pizza stone a little higher where there is more heat.
    Placing the heat deflectors high on the grill,  creates more air space in the fire box thereby getting the necessary high temp. To measure the pizza stone temp, buy an infrared thermometer gun, $15-$20. They are great. Youll find many uses for it.

    For far too many of my relatives, that petroleum based odor and taste is an essential part of the flavor profile.

    Don't let a good fire like that go to waste. Put a grate over the top of the pipe and throw
    a couple of 'Burgs or Brats on it or maybe a steak and enjoy.

    Sounds great!!!! See you have the advantage- kerosene would absolutely have scared the heck out of my neighbors. I did make good use out of a leaf blower however. 
     
    Also, certain you know this but, do not pour water on the stump. It continues to burn underground to take out a portion of the root system. My stumps gave off whiffs of smoke for at least a few days.

    I'll let you in on a secret....  The sloroller AND the kontrol tower top vent are gonna lose some powdercoating.   The sloroller is gonna lose MOST of its powdercoating.

    Went for my morning walk and saw these local examples. All in a two block radius.  There are many more nearby with Covid references as well.  In the photos below, some are little mini galaxies, a tribute to the Jellybean houses in St. John’s NF, etc.  Enjoy!

    Looking for something do while locked down, I started painting rocks with some acrylic paint pens I got off the internet. My wife wanted some pretty rocks to spice up the garden.

    DEW reacted to Chris Topher in Crazy Run on Toilet Paper   
    I haven't seen the video review for the bidet. Is it in the works?
     
    I did have an opportunity to pick up a pair, albeit a different model and cold water only: one for my bathroom and the other for Mrs. Topher's. As an aside, separate baths is the way to go (but she gets the bigger bath, of course ).
     
    Anyway, installation was a breeze. Just unhook the water supply to the toilet valve and hook it up to a T fitting, hook the T fitting to the toilet valve, and run the supplied line from the T fitting to the bidet valve, and we're off to the races on the plumbing side. 
     
    Place and align the bidet between the seat and the bowl, and you're pretty much set. A little aiming, and you're done. Ten minutes, tops, to install each one. I tell you, kneeling in front of a toilet bowl is usually no pleasure, but this is my personal best experience doing so.
     
    My TP usage has gone WAY, WAY down. And, the cool spray bring an invigorating and refreshing boost to the morning constitutional. It might be psychological, but I feel a lot cleaner. Mrs. Topher says the same thing. I can't believe we were such savages.
     
    All in all, it was worth the $30-per-bidet investment!
