I'm assuming it is mold but I can't seem to find anything that looks similiar online, this is how it looks like :

I want to do some DIY landscaping but I don't think anything would grow in that soil, has anybody seen something similar and do you know how to get rid of it ? Is it dangerous?

I am located in the midsouth.

You are saying it is alive?

I wouldn't say it's mold without looking at it in person, but how wet is that area in general? I think you might need to work on drainage first.

Sorry if it was already shared, but wanted to raise awareness for those who (like me) didn't know:

"Effective February 28, 2018, we will discontinue Extended Product Warranty, Return Guarantee, Purchase Protection, Auto Rental Insurance and Flight Accident Insurance due to low usage among cardmembers. This change requires no action on your part."

They definitely trimmed a lot of the benefits and is looking a lot more like a sub prime product , I used to love Discover and honestly I have not ever used the benefits but I did like the fact of knowing that I was protected when making certain purchases, definitely will shift my purchases somewhere else.

Hmm do you know if Amex still carries these things

AMEX is great with these benefits, their purchase protection progrM is top notch.

Honestly, if nobody was using these benefits then I don't blame them. Did you ever use these benefits? If not, then this really doesn't impact you.

I have used the purchase protection benefit before, not with discover though. I don't think I will make any electronics purchase with Discover going forward, even if you don't end up using is like having insurance.

Bought a house, got my green card, bought a car and got a promotion!

When I was in high school (1998) my biology teacher gave a class about how certain pharmaceutical products could have serious genetic consequences after a couple generations (i.e your kids, grand kids etc.) she then said there was a very known case about a medicine that they released in the 80's where they found out that deformations might occur in the 5th generation (great great grandkids?) . She was a very respected teacher so none of us questioned the lesson. A couple years ago, for no reason I remembered what she said and realized It made zero sense, how would the track and monitor 5 generations in 20 years. I felt kinda stupid.

My water heater died and I had to shower with cold water.


Hello there ! Long time lurker here but I just recently created an account in this amazing site. Now my issue... I've recently become a homeowner and it's been fabulous , no regrets at all. When we moved to the house we noticed that one of the sinks in the master bath ( granite counter top double sink) was cracked and stained. If you look at this sink it does not look special at all, just a plain white oval porcelain sink. We made our due diligence and hired a contractor to replace the sink. Well it turns out that the current sink was "glued" to the counter top so he had to break it in order to pull it off from the fixture, but when the time came to install the new one he called me and with a concerned tone informed me that the sink he brought wouldn't fit, he took measurements of the hole ( 18in length x 12in width) and we went to HD and Lowes but we couldn't find a sink that would fit, so he left , at least he didn't charge but now I am without a sink and with a hole in my counter top. I spent literally 4 hours looking online for a sink with these measures but I can't find any, it looks like the width of the basin is to short (12in outer would have to be about 14in) . It would have never occurred to me that this was a custom size, has anybody come across a similar situation ? I would like to avoid to replace the whole counter top since I don't want so spend more than 300-400 on this. Thank you for your help.

Forgot to mention that the removed sink does not have brand or model printed anywhere!

Toto makes a 19x12-3/8 sink that could probably work. Some overhang is normal and intentional.

19x13 sinks are also pretty common.

I did look at this brand but I can't find this size on oval undermount models.

If you talk to someone at Home Depot's kitchen and bathroom remodeling department they can help you order something that's a custom size if you can't find it on their website.

I think there is a reason why your grandfather never made a genuine effort to recoup the money, you even mentioned that when you brought it up he told you to hold on to it. My perception is that he wanted to give you the money but he didn't want you you to think it was "charity". I would keep the money. If you want to give something back maybe you could make a small donation to a charity or a cause that your grandfather liked.


My wife was not eligible for a SSN until this year, we have been filing taxes using her ITIN for the last 4 years now she is a permanent resident and she has now a SSN. When we file taxes next year do I just start using her SSN or should I notifiy someone about the change?

Assuming your SSN appeared first on all joint returns, you won't have to notify IRS of the change. She will eventually receive a notice advising her to renew the ITIN, and then she can advise IRS she has a Social Security number at that time.

When you electronically file next year, her prior-year Adjusted Gross Income will be zero.
