    I think I jinxed myself by saying I haven`t had to shovel yet this season. I know what I`ll be doing this evening..

    Coming from a 700 sq ft apartment for 10 years - this place seems huge (it`s not). Somehow, the movers got all my stuff in without damaging anything. Lowe`s did the same with the the appliances.

    Kitchen appliances are all stainless steel (never had stainless) and I`m annoyed by the fingerprints. Bought some special stainless "polish and cleaner" - but I`m going to try putting a coat of sealant on them - maybe Power Lock.

    I`ve never had an flat screen or HD TV, and haven`t had a working TV for about 3 years. Bought a 55" smart HD TV and got Xfinity 1 cable. They brought me a remote control you can talk to like Siri. Overwhelming choices of channels and apps.

    I have a lot of respect for movers.

    ****please support trans-species humans.

    If you have any CG V7 around it works well on stainless steel stuff. I don`t like using it on my cars anymore because it messes with my LSP properties so I relegated it to kitchen duty. I`ve tried a couple of sealants and they definitely help reduce fingerprints.

    I`m currently in the process of trying to get rid of my old 35" TV circa 1993 (it`s big, heavy, and doesn`t work). Trash won`t take it & Best Buy won`t take TVs > 32".

    There is no local drop off place or recyclers for old school TVs. The people that will take them charge a fee. I am diametrically opposed to this. It`s like flushing $50 down the toilet.

    I`m trying to think of someone who I really hate - so I can dump it on their lawn, Lolz. But, I don`t hate anyone that much.

    Girlfriend says smash it to bits with a sledge hammer - then sweep up the bits. Sounds funny, but I won`t be doing that.

    Thanks for the tip. I do have some V7 and will try it. I agree that V7 messes with LSP hydrophobics.

    sorry but this made me burst into laughter....

    "you said you watched mostly chemical guys videos..that`s your first mistake.."

    In other randomness, went to the new Cirque Du Soleil "Toruk" (Inspired by the movie Avatar) last night , and it was very good. This one is very story driven and not many crazy acrobatics, more like a visual spectacle with tons of colors and more emotion into it. Some pics (spoiler alert?) . Just realized that i`m having multiple "date" plans with the lady this weekend and i couldn`t care less about Valentine`s day, there just happened to be good stuff going on around the date this year starting with the Circus, Deadpool and she`s dying to watch Zoolander 2 so i got tickets for both movies.

    I just noticed a Facebook for 512 mobile detailing in austin (15 miles from me)...i dont go into austin for jobs anyways and only detail two days a week max, but i can imagine how that could become confusing for potential clients.
    Should i reach out to this guy?

    His fb is much more popular than mine, but ive never really advertised bc i cant take an influx of business as is.

    Im using a dba do i need to inc/llc now or what?
