possible to fix tv speakers buzz?

My boyfriend has a Phillips 32" in flat LCD HDTV, that appears to be from 2006 or 2007. The screen seems to still be in great shape, but the speakers have developed an annoying buzz. Is it likely that the speakers could be fixed at a reasonable cost, or do we need to junk the tv completely and just get a new one?

(Should I/How can I) have concrete driveway repair and tuckpointing work done in cold weather?

A contractor is planning to come out this week and replace a substantial portion of my driveway. It (was and) will be a concrete driveway. The same contractor ('s father) will also be doing a substantial amount of tuckpointing. I live in Cleveland and as you know this is mid-November. Should I be concerned about the cold/snow/rain affecting the durability of their work? What should I expect them to do to adapt to the weather? Should I just try to get them to wait until Spring?

Thermarest Patching, Without Patch Kit?

My wife and I just held one of our thermarests underwater. We counted nine separate leaks bubbling air. Wet, it sounded like a squeaky radiator as all the air leaked out. I blame our sharp-clawed and inquisitive cats. Anyhow, I don't know if we can get to a camping store before the weekend-- does anyone have experience patching these things with bike tube kits, shoe goo, or other easily-available gunk?

Refinishing a small spot on a hardwood floor

We recently moved out of an apartment with hardwood floors. The owner claims there is damage to the floor where we had a desk. He says he needs to "talk to his floor guy" to see how much it will cost to repair, which will then come out of our security deposit. I have no idea how much spot repair runs, and I'd like a general idea so that we can stand our ground in case he comes up with a high estimate. [more inside]
