Laminate goes over the flooring.

My ex husband is a carpenter and he helped me build my house.

I was actually referring to a very heavy duty tongue and groove 'sub flooring'.

I do have laminate flooring in a large part of my house. It's rather heavy duty, you could say.
It's a very dark wood grain color. I put a good underlayment down and the floor is quiet. It
doesn't scratch......well it will scratch as anything will but you'd have to really try hard to get
it scratched. Yep, it comes in planks usually, mine is planks. I do have a house dog and a
house cat but they don't pee on the floor. :mrgreen: Their bathroom is located in my utility
room and that is ceramic flooring. My cat uses a litter box and my dog uses wee wee pads.
My bathrooms and den is also ceramic.

There is pro's and con's to laminate and wood flooring. Wood flooring does scratch and does
so much easier than a good laminate flooring. Wood flooring however can be sanded to remove
scratches and laminate flooring cannot be sanded. Wood flooring can last a hundred years or
more. The laminate flooring I have, is guaranteed for 50 years. Laminate flooring is very easy
to care for. Wood flooring is harder to take care of.

If your laminate flooring isn't sealed, you don't want it to get very wet. In reality you wouldn't
want your wood flooring to get very wet either. I've had wood flooring in other houses and I
used a steam cleaner some times on those.

I even have this laminate flooring in my kitchen.

I use a swifter mop with replacement wet sheets. I mop the floor with those and every so
often, I will use a product called 'Bona for laminate flooring'.

Which ever you choose, do NOT let the cat pee on the floor. :lol:

Yes, you can still have static in your clothes, even when drying them outside.

I have three outside cats. I have a home made heavy duty cat house.

The cat house is really heavy and I keep it sitting on work benches....oh what are they called.....
horses.......work horses? It's two heavy duty solid plastic work horses. The cat house actually
fits perfectly on those. It keeps it off the ground/concrete and therefore stays warmer. There
is a divider inside the middle so that the cats can sleep on either side....actually two full grown
cats are very comfortable on either side but one is a male cat and tends to fight with one of the
female cats...I don't know why because they are all 'fixed'.

Inside the cat house I have heating pads and straw. The heating pads, believe it or not, seem
to last forever. I turn the heating pads on when it gets down below freezing....like in the upper
20's or lower.

The top of the cat house opens back by hinges. It makes easy for me to open it, change the
straw, etc.

My ex-husband made it and he even went so far as to place vinyl siding on it.

My point is, if you ever need something like a cat house, DON'T buy one because you'll spend
a lot and not have anything but cold plastic. Even a woman can buy the wood, even have it
cut first, nail it together, put heating pad and straw inside. Very inexpensive to make.

The one my ex made is very heavy as he made it out of some left over pre-flooring ....I forget
what that stuff is called but it's what people put down in their new house for the floor...like a
heavy duty pressed board.

It also keeps the cats safe from potential predators like wild dogs because the dogs can't climb
up there.

I don't think people have too much a problem with static clean any more since the
invention of dryer sheets. You can also take dryer sheets with you and rub it on
your clothing if need be.

You might want to look up 'dryer sheets' for your website. There is tons of uses
for them. I hang them up high on my balcony in the summer to help keep flying
insects away. Used dryer sheets are used by some people on their duster/swifter
mops to dust their floors.

In the old days, we used hair spray to prevent static clean. We'd spray a very light
amount on our stockings and or under clothing, primarily, to prevent our dress from
sucking to us due to static.

Difficult to say, fun to think about.

Maybe the first step would be to zoom a ways into the future to see what I am dying of.
Then I can zoom back in the past and correct whatever it was that was killing me.

Many of us do stupid things when we are young. We think we know so much but
in reality, we have barely begun to live and we don't know jack.

Just like most everything else, there are people that are more susceptible to some things than other things.
In other words, some people become addicted to things more so than others. I kind of equate it to 'sugar'.
It's easy for some people to give up sugar and for others almost an impossibility.

FYI

Well I am going to say this just because I feel I must. Someone might come along and read it
and decide to change their ways.

I had a half brother.....notice I said 'had' that got into drugs heavily. He was young and not
married for long but long enough to have two children, a girl and a boy. They were not even
school age when he died. His wife found him in the bathtub, dead. He had over dosed.

I had a half sister that was an alcoholic. Notice I said 'had'. She was highly intelligent but
wild as a loon. One of those people that never meets a stranger, very outgoing. Very much
like her brother as they were both extremely likable and kind people. Her and her boyfriend
decided to tie the knot. They were drunk and on their way to get married. She was driving.
Fortunately the truck did not run into another vehicle. She simply lost control and was thrown
from the vehicle and died immediately on impact. Her boyfriend, did not even get a scratch.

Both of them made their life primarily about substance abuse and it killed them.

Think about my families loss, the next time you decide to take a drink and drive.
Think about my families loss, the next time you decide to do drugs.
Because it could be YOUR families loss too.

Everyone seems to think it only happens to other people. However, almost everyone I
meet, has someone in their family that lost their life due to drugs or alcohol. So no matter
how funny the movies are with drunk people in them or druggies in them, remember, not
being in control of your senses, is never a good thing and in reality brings out your
stupidity.

Probably a better question might be to 'list the best that is the worst invention?'

If that was the question I can think of a lot of things which is almost everything.

Motor Vehicles. These are the best inventions but have become the worst invention. More people die in
vehicle accidents then in war. People fight over oil. They are very costly and for most people a car will
be their second most expensive purchase in their life (first being a house). The vehicle gets people where
they need to go quickly and is a great source for transporting foods and various goods. They are also
great for polluting the air. A whole bunch of them that are wrecked, is an eye sore in yards, junk yards, etc.
They have created jobs for millions of people over the years and they have also created unemployment for
millions of people. It's a great way to spend lots of money. It's also a great way to spend a lot of money
on a very regular basis for gasoline, tires, inspections, insurance, and more.

I think the best thing is all the stuff we have today but the worst thing is all the stuff we have today.

Alaskan Joe:

There is an abundance of snow in town this year. According to the Alaskan local board members,
we are to run the one local snow plow down main street when the snow is above 6 inches. Do
you agree?

Mayor Kitty Kat: Meow

Alaskan Joe:

The Inuits are restless this year due to the lack of whale blubber wash up. Can we donate some
of the local Crisco cooking oil?

Mayor Kitty Kat: Meow

Alaskan Joe:

There's a lack of pencils this year at the grade school. Should we place an order?

Mayor Kitty Kat: Meow

Alaskan Joe: The Tuna Feast will be held on the same date this year as last year. Are you in
agreement?

Mayor Kitty Kat: MEEEEOOOOOOWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Alaskan Joe: Thank you Mayor, see you next week.

I make a fruit salad often but especially at holidays. It is rather common now but my
grandmother made it when I was growing up so I carried on the tradition you could say.
It's made a variety of ways.

Crushed pineapple, fruit cocktail (mixture of fruit), small curd cottage cheese, cool whip,
and a package of dry orange jello powder. That's pretty much the basic way. I put other
stuff in it such as a jar of cherries, small color marshmallows, pecan pieces, coconut, and
switch up using jello flavors such as green pistachio.

No. He is highly intelligent. Too intelligent in my opinion. Book smart. One of those guys
that never had to study anything in his life. Tell him something and he remembers it. Read
something, he remembers it. He was tall, dark, handsome and a farmers son. His mother
full blooded Italian. He is the second oldest child, and oldest boy, of ten children. A guy
everyone likes as soon as they meet him......especially the women. :roll:

I have never ate humous sounds like it would taste like barf.

I hate olives. Olives taste like baby barf.

Grape vines are for swinging. Grape vine leaf probably taste like slime barf.
