The lust for comfort, that stealthy thing that enters the house a guest, and then becomes a host, and then a master.

If I evict termites from my fence, will they relocate to my house?

I have a split rail fence in my back yard that is in very sorry shape, and I'm planning on replacing it soon. However, I recently noticed that parts of the fence are being eaten by termites. I don't see any sign of termites around the house (although I'm not an expert). If I replace the fence and take away the termites' home, what's the risk that they will decide to take up residence in my house (or deck or trees)? [more inside]

Melting Stove Cords and Me

Our stove's electric cord melted and our electrician says that he thinks it was a fault with the stove itself. When I say the cord melted, it is a 6 inch gooey mess starting in the center of the cord that had heated up to the point where it started to burn through the wall and melted a hole in the gas line. The stove itself was off (oven and burners) and it apparently happened spontaneously. The electrician was, in his words, "shocked your house did not burn down. Be glad you smelled the gas when you did". My question has two parts going on the electrician's hypothesis: 1) The stove is out of warranty but it is still only 7 years old. Maytag is sending a repair person to asses the problem. Would we have any leg to stand on to ask for money towards a new stove? I doubt it but am hopeful. 2) Who, if anyone, should we notify that there may be an issue with these stoves? I would hate to think that someone else's house might burn down through some sort of faulty wire and we could have let "someone" know. (we are in Georgia). A bonus question - can anyone think of how this could possibly have happened? It seems pretty odd to us and to the electrician and we cannot think of something that might have made this happen.

Frameless LP jacket wall hanging?

I want to hang some LP covers on a wall, and remember years ago seeing a cheap little kit that was something like four pieces of clear plastic for the corners, connected by an elastic string X-shape in the back that could hang on a nail.
