You know, I was a kid in the 70’s but I only have vague memories of most of this stuff.

    That should say: File under “It’s okay when we do it”

  8. That is beyond pathetic. Don’t know what beyond pathetic is Jimbro but it’s bad.

    Do any of these idiots get that white men civilization has afforded them the lifestyle they are accustomed to?

    These people are idiots and except for politics he’d be working as “dryer” at the local car wash.

  9. She’s not credible to me, but there is this: https://gellerreport.com/2019/04/notre-dame-fire-whatwe-know.html/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

  10. I applaud the restraint of the “white banker panel”. If it were me I would have simply left before saying something, on the record, I would regret. And by regret, I mean, would cause me to lose my job because of the social justice crowd.

  11. Anyone that uses the those dumb phrases SJW phrases are doing us a favor. We know not to take them seriously.

    Its like a guy wearing a hat backward. You know he’s a dumbass and he has conveniently found a way to signal it.

  12. How about cargo shorts?

    (asking for a friend)

  13. Yea, the only proper response to Green is “Go fuck yourself”.

  14. ” … very strict supervision of all people allowed there. I think we will eventually learn that this was arson.”

    Yep.

    Not that anyone will allow this to be the publicly accepted cause.

  15. It’s gaslighting. They know it’s bullshit, they are trying to rile up white nationalist sentiment where it never existed before to keep blacks on the plantation. It’s the Devil’s trick of divide and conquer.

  16. They quit dumping illegal immigrants in NM, of course now they are releasing “asylum seekers”. 800 yesterday.

  17. So … a former coworker has become a Tony Robbins cultist.

    I can’t even.

    She’s the one who had her infant son die while being babysat by the baby daddy’s father (they think it was swaddled too tight) and then a year later told me POINT BLANK that she was going to intentionally get pregnant by the next guy she had sex with. And … she did.

    Now she talks about #goals of financial success. I can’t even. Spends I don’t know how much money to go to his conferences.

  18. asylum seekers, Dreamers, children of immigrants.

    All synonyms for illegal.

  19. Well, Car in, it IS a good plan for success. For Tony Robbins.

  20. Yes it is.

  21. Spends I don’t know how much money to go to his conferences.
    —–
    My ex wife had some of his videotapes so, at some point before I met her, went to a few conferences. After a few years she started getting into Landmark Education (same idea as Robbins) and got involved with a MLM company called Arbonne (cosmetics). Lots of my money going out, none of the promised riches coming in. This factored greatly in my decision to divorce.

  22. Hold up a copy of Dave Ramsey in front of her and yell, “Out, foul demon, from this poor woman!”

  23. This week, on a very special episode of Lapeer Creek that the whole family will want to watch together and discuss afterwards, a young woman gets caught in the clutches of a cult…

  24. Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach.

    Then Ramsey.

  25. She posted a video (on instagram) of her at one of the rally things. Honestly she looked … a tad insane. She obviously didn’t see “that” because she posted it. It was worrisome.

  26. I don’t know who writes for the Babylon Bee but I owe them a beer…or 2.

  27. Marching orders of the day – don’t give money to rebuild Notre Dame . GIve money to x, y, z.

    It is tiresome.

  28. The Babylon Bee writers must struggle with not drinking themselves into a stupor trying to parody Frankie and others in a way that isn’t quickly surpassed by reality.

  29. High speed rail made an appearance.

    Next they will protest eminent domain to seize all the land to build the rail lines.

  30. It’s sad when I see some rather thoughtful people fall for it. I don’t want to hurt their feelings and point out that they’re acting like a sheep.

  31. If I was on that panel, I would have stood up, declared in a firm voice, “I don’t have time for this racist bullshiit. Get back to my staff when you want to talk about something relevant to banking, Good day.”

  32. I get annoyed by all the “hot takes” about how horrible it is to waste money on cathedrals and how God doesn’t care about what your church looks like.

    1) This is the same God who laid out in specific detail how the first temple was to be built, how it was to be decorated, and how the priests were to dress. He didn’t tell Moses, “hey, when you get to the Promised Land, rent out a store front in a strip mall next to the Jerusalem DMV.” Obviously, aesthetics matter to him.

    2) Aesthetics matter. All religious sites have special decorations, layouts, etc. The beauty and majesty of these sites sets them apart from the profane world. The sensory effect is arguably part of the ritual of worship.

    3) Coming together to build a beautiful cathedral that will be a focal point for a community is a unifying experience that helps bind a community together.

    Dear Prudence,
    My wife and I have been married for 10 years. We have 5-year-old twins that she carried. The idea was she would carry one pregnancy, and I would carry the next with the same sperm donor. My wife keeps bringing up that it is my “turn” next. I am older than her, and I know we need to do this now if we are going to do it. I’ve realized I don’t want to. I don’t want to give up my place in my career. I am glad to be out of the diapers stage, and we’re finally able to travel and enjoy our lives again. Having the twins was rough on my wife. She became clinically depressed twice and had to be hospitalized once. I had to quit my job in order to take care of her and the babies. We burned through a lot of our savings. We got stronger as a family for it, but I can’t put my wife through that again. She has always wanted a big family. I am fine with our size now but am open to adoption. I don’t want to break our promise, but I can’t see how giving up the good life we have is worth it. What do I do? How do I tell her?

    Yeah, I like to read these stupid advice columns. They are my secret shame.

  35. She has always wanted a big family.

    Tragic about that carpet munching thing, eh? If only there were some way for her to seek reparative therapy that might have helped with her life goals.

  36. I was listening to an NPR interview yesterday where the host was laying out to the commentator that over $1billion dollars was raised in a day to rebuild Notre Dame where no one was hurt, but the hurricane that hit Mozambique that killed over a thousand people in March had only raised $300million so far. The host said, “Why is it that people care more about stone and mortar that they care about peoples’ lives?”

    The commentator calmly replied, “With all due respect, you covered the Notre Dame fire for a solid six hours yesterday. How much time have you spent covering Mozambique?”

    I LOLd.

  37. Anyway, building an aesthetically pleasing place of worship can be as much an act of worship and devotion as any prayer or Mass. This is too often forgotten in this day and age.

  38. the hurricane that hit Mozambique that killed over a thousand people in March had only raised $300million so far. The host said, “Why is it that people care more about stone and mortar that they care about peoples’ lives?”

    The commentator calmly replied, “With all due respect, you covered the Notre Dame fire for a solid six hours yesterday. How much time have you spent covering Mozambique?”

    The billion raised for Notre Dame is likely to be spent on rebuilding Notre Dame. The $300 million raised for Mozambique is likely to be embezzled by corrupt bureaucrats and NGO leadership, and what isn’t will be used to build infrastructure that the locals have no desire or ability to maintain.

  39. I’ve seen where the money donated is proof that all the world’s problems would be solved if the world’s billionaires only cared.

  40. Jay, I saw that post and was tempted to respond with something similar to above.

    The reality is that that vast majority of problems in the world are due to corruption/stupidity, NOT a lack of money.

  41. People don’t starve for lack of food in the world. Mozambique is a shithole because it’s run by shitheads.

  42. Can I make and freeze green bean casserole and have it delicious and the texture right for Easter? Or can I just keep it in the fridge made, ready to cook on Sunday?

  43. To the woman with the wedding dilemma: You’re a selfish cunt. You couldn’t plan your way out of a wet paper bag. Please don’t have children.

    To the rug munchers: Quit abusing children.

  44. I wouldn’t freeze. I think it’s going to wreck the beans.

  45. Mozambique is a shithole because it is in Africa – an entire continent that is a shithole.

  46. Hotspur and Coalex both made my points regarding the church rebuilding. It’s all just so stupid. as I said, it’s sad to see how many people are mindless sheep. Willing to repeat something they’ve been told w/o even thinking about it.

  47. Green bean casseroles are so our parents’ generation.

  48. Someone yesterday posted some bullshit about how the money should be spend, and half of the examples they gave were bs. Flint water crises was one. People keep repeating that stupid stupid thing w/o even researching.

  49. As I read that comment about the lesbian couple all I could think of was that crazy couple who drove their van full of adopted kids (who they were celebrated for adopting by the media) into the ocean.

    Anyway, building an aesthetically pleasing place of worship can be as much an act of worship and devotion as any prayer or Mass. This is too often forgotten in this day and age.

    ——–

    Absolutely. I mentioned “release of faith” the other day and I think there are places so beautiful, so awe inspiring as to be breath-taking. These places (certainly for Catholics who have seen them) represent man’s glorification of God and like Alex said, a strip mall doesn’t cut it, at least not for me.

    Now, I understand that battlefield and makeshift places to have Mass and receive Communion can have their own majesty.

  51. To this day Flint’s water problems are blamed on a Snyder appointed emergency manager. No, Flint is a shithole because of decades of democrat incompetence, otherwise there would have been no need for an emergency manager. And it wasn’t Snyder or the emergency manager who failed to treat the water with the chemicals that were required and that were readily available.

  52. My daughter, husband and daughter’s fiance LOVE my green bean casserole and I’m making it!

  53. Thanks, Carin. But it should be fine in the fridge for Thurs, Fri and Sat before cooking? I normally just make it in the morning but we’re going to sunrise service and I won’t have time.

  54. We’re having lamb at our friends’. I’m making cheesecake with caramel topping. I don’t get involved in casseroles.

  55. Lefties just love to throw other people’s money at a problem that is swirling in grift and corruption.

  56. Hey, Hotspur, eat my shit you Scottish Poofter.

    And take that pinkie of yours you like to wave in the air and shove it.

    But I mean that in a nice way.

  57. But it should be fine in the fridge for Thurs, Fri and Sat before cooking? I
    Probably? My version is all from scratch, so if I were doing it I might make the sauce – and that could even be frozen. But I’d cook the beans in the am and throw it together.

  58. I’m probably going to sign up for a woodturning class on Sunday. I’ll go to an early Mass and then spend all day making a bowl.

  59. Day before, I’d say no problem.

  60. I’m probably going to sign up for a woodturning class on Sunday. I’ll go to an early Mass and then spend all day making a bowl of dicks.

  61. Thanks, Carin.

  62. “You’re being charitable to the wrong thing!” has to be the most sickening example of virtue signalling.

  63. HAHAHAHAHA, Using Notre Dame money for high speed rail.

    Eff you and the slow prius you rode in on. DICK!

  64. No, Hotspur, I’m not bringing you dessert.

  65. I’m told this is an accurate depiction of the press just now.

  66. This class looks interesting. I’d love to make a wooden vase which sits in an iron stand (maybe a ring with three fishtail scrolls as legs), and then add a couple of glass flowers.

  67. Would you do it for Mare?

    Well, he’s pissed off HBO, so he’s got that going for him.

    They wouldn’t have batted an eye if Hillary appropriated that font.

  70. HBO can go fuck themselves. I quit my subscription after a couple of seasons of Game of Thrones blatant porn. I’m not paying for that smut.

  71. Yep, Game of Thrones is porn. They could have had the story line without the garbage. Would have made it more serious too. But, hey, HBO.

    The writer, (I don’t care enough to look up his name) is a nut and like most Hollywood weirdos uses the show to act out his sexual fantasies. I use to see that in The Family Guy with Seth what’s his name. And of course every other show on network tv.

  72. I just learned that you can turn a photo into a 20 x 16 poster for $17 at Walgreens.

    Amazing.

  73. I haven’t had cable in about ten years. You can subscribe to HBO through Apple TV, which I did for a while, but I quit after a couple of years.

  74. I honestly usually ff through the gross stuff, and perhaps it’s just me but there has been less of it as the seasons have gone on. Maybe they got the message that people didn’t want it?

  75. Huh, that’s a good sign, Carin. Some of the stuff was cringe worthy. I watched the first 8 episodes of Season 1 (I think it was season 1) on a plane.

    We barely have network TV. We have some kind of Spectrum deal that we use with our Roku. I wanted History Channel (for ancient aliens because the people they interview are hilarious), HGTV for house stuff except not house hunters which is all gay all the time. And Hallmark channel because my husband and I are from the 50’s.

  76. Post updated with stupid meme.

    Regarding the porn in GoT. I wish it wasn’t there. I ff through it mostly – or look away. I do NOT want to see it.

    But I do love the story and the characters etc. I hate that they “ruin” it with gross stuff. But there are so few things that I find entertaining.

  77. The left is really pushing Buttplug. Poor Beto

  79. I think a lot of people feel that way. They want the story, tension, death, betrayal etc., I know I do.

    Same here.

    Of course, I also like occasional titties.

  80. Occasionally titties aren’t really what bugged me, to be honest. And a little more Jamie Lannister/jon snow ass would be fine too. It’s the other stuff.

  81. Oh, and the excellent film making or cinematography or whatever.

  82. No, boobs or the human body does not offend me at all. It’s the women pleasuring each other, the casual doggie style and whatnot.

  83. Yea. same.

  84. “My daughter, husband and daughter’s fiance LOVE my green bean casserole and I’m making it!”

    ===========

    They are just being polite……

  85. Whoa, nice knowing you, Pepe.

  86. Pepe may get some casserole where the sun don’t shine.

  87. All this winning, it’s possible that someday it will become slightly off-putting. BUT NOT YET, HA HA HA HAAAAA!

    The lefty goons are already trying to circulate the idea that “Trump was not exonerated!!” because they don’t understand that this makes them look even more like risible whiny losers. Which is nice.

  88. Hey, Lefties, you made your lame play, it didn’t work out as hoped, be a man and STFU and move on.

  89. although the brother sister incest is kinda central to part of the story.

  90. EAT THEIR DESPAIR.

  91. Watch this fat POS, hypocrite:

    https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

  92. I just watched the Barr press conference at lunch. The press is embarrassing. Out of 5 questions, 3 of the questioners didn’t know what they were talking about and had to be corrected. Who the fuck are these people that spend two years obsessing over something yet know nothing about the details?

    They must just tweet all day, I guess.

  93. The media plugging Buttplug is along the same line as their plugging Obama.

    Unassailable because “Gay”. Unassailable because “Half Black”.

  94. Buttlove is an Axelrod creation.

  95. The great irony, of course, is that one of the main reasons people pursue education, financial security, and solid employment is to create comfortable lives. But for some, this can begin to feel like too much of a good thing. Endurance sports provide a necessary outlet, offering concrete measures of a job well done and the chance to deal with physical suffering—albeit in a voluntary, defined, and immediately escapable environment.

    There’s some truth to it. We were meant to suffer, strive, and achieve.

    I also think that there’s a certain amount of class signalling involved. Powerlifting/bodybuilding is still seen as the full of “muscle heads” and is related to sports that are typically blue collar in popularity, whereas running is more associated with sports favored by white-collar workers. Also, running fits more closely with the globalist lifestyle, since you can run anywhere, races are held worldwide, and you can do it as a group activity, especially as a coed activity.

  96. I personally think a lot of it has to do with how we’ve been conditioned to think. Fitness is what rich people do has become the excuse for less-privileged folk to not feel bad about hitting the beer the second they walk in the door and watching tv all night. I know plenty of people with very modest means who are gym rats who do races as I do.

    Growing up, the big mileage runners I knew were a woodworker/carpenter and a librarian. Running is a very cheap sport, so if you live in a richer neighborhood you may see a lot of people running- but MOST of the people who are runners up by me certainly aren’t “rich”. Unless teachers are “rich”?

    These types of articles really just smack me as classicist. Why do few people in low-income neighborhoods work out? Maybe there are parallels and reasons, but they don’t want to explore THOSE reasons. OR causes.

    Maybe people who like to achieve in their career are ALSO driven to other challenges. And the discipline that lead their to their financial gain also enables them to discipline themselves physically.

  97. I found the street Mare lives on.

  98. Wealth and health both correlate strongly with IQ, but it’s impermissible to suggest that poor people might not be smart.

  99. I just came back from a meeting (half hour drive) and was listening to NPR Special Coverage of the Mueller report.

    The wishcasting is hilarious.

    I think Carin drove home drunk last night, but I can’t prove it, but I still think she’s a drunk driver.

  100. Coalex, regarding your linky…that’s not going to be a problem. If my daughter got her way, they’d marry with just the parents present and be on their way with the $$. She’s gritting her teeth thinking about how much feeding 80 people is going to be.

    Where will the Hostages be seated? And where will we be staying?

    I think we can manage a table. But there isn’t going to be any booze.
    Also, the rented RV sounds like a plan. We’ll let you in to use the bathroom. There is also a hose on the side of the house the RV can be parked if you all prefer to shower together. (it’s on a cul de sac).

  101. I think Carin drove home drunk last night, but I can’t prove it, but I still think she’s a drunk driver.

    Shows what you know. I took a bus home.

    I just don’t know what to do with this bus now …

  102. Wealth and health both correlate strongly with IQ, but it’s impermissible to suggest that poor people might not be smart.

    I think the bigger factor in this discussion is discipline. Someone can do pretty well for themselves with a lower IQ but great discipline.

    Because you can find poor people who are great athletes – because they are disciplined.

  103. I personally think a lot of it has to do with how we’ve been conditioned to think.

Unless teachers are “rich”?

    “White-collar” and “rich” aren’t necessarily the same thing. A teacher is white collar, as is an entry-level office worker. Both probably make far less than a skilled oil-worker.

    And while you can certainly have lower-income folks who run, I do notice that running as a cultural activity seems to be most common among people I know who are middle-income white collar types.

  104. Oh, look, I found the street that Hotspur lives on.

    Because you can find poor people who are great athletes – because they are disciplined.

    The dirty little secret is that there’s likely an IQ-Discipline correlation as well. If you’re smarter, you can understand consequences better and are able to plan for the future. When you aren’t… payday loans and spending your bonus on a fancy car seem like good ideas. Ditto hopping into bed with some guy you just met and not using protection.

    I’m not saying that someone with a lower IQ can’t have discipline, but I think it is harder and requires much more outside support, which is why social institutions and culture are so important. When society as a whole is telling you “don’t do these stupid things” it can help keep you on the right path when your brain is saying, “hey, let’s give it a shot!”

    Prosecutors have asked to present evidence in the NXIVM sex cult racketeering trial showing that NXIVM leaders including Nancy Salzman and Clare Bronfman illegally bundled money for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign by compelling members to donate to Clinton and then reimbursing the members.

  110. Huh. I wonder when that will break on CNN.

  111. “……..THIS IS AN OUTRAGE.

    She doesn’t want to spend the money on it. According to her, his family is full of lushes. That and she’s only going to have a catered brunch or lunch depending on how early the marriage ceremony takes place. If it winds up in the church basement, it would look bad if you all and his family pass out nekkid all over the place. If it’s in some hall or restaurant, it will be a cash bar type thing.

  112. Pig roast in the backyard.

    What do the local farms have out in the field? Anyone good with a bow?

  113. My point was that the article is stating that it’s an economic success thing (because it’s always about money). A pure classsist argument. The poor people are in bad shape because they have no money. Life is unfair. Poor people CERTAINLY can’t do endurance sports.

    And I’m tying it not to income or class, but one’s level of discipline. Those things may ALSO be related, but chicken egg thing.

    Taken to the extreme: A poor person isn’t fat because they’re poor. They’re fat because they lack discipline. Which may also be why they’re poor.

    But, a poor person doesn’t HAVE to be fat, and the barriers to working out (like running) are in their head. Not in their wallet.

    Okay, off to go mull over my tile problem. Later hawt potaters.

  120. Yeah, that’s some bullcrap. We’re bringing our charming personalities to enliven the celebration, after all. Plus all these bullwhips and hosefucker gear.

  121. A project for Leon

  122. I was thinking my next project ought to be the garden, then the coop, then beehives.

  123. Watched a presentation by this guy and I’m sold on his hive layout.

  124. He actually suggests finding a local hive of wild bees and giving them a box to move into in springtime, then moving that to your farm.

  125. Judge: State Your Name.

  126. Just set up a box next to jimbro’s bees, then.

  127. I got a therapy dog

  128. Well……my VP just resigned (but Im not supposed to know cause the part time book keeper spoke out of turn) . Fucker has been out cause he just had his knee done for the last 3 wks. Guess I better get my resume ready and study for a physical and a drug test. I have a bit of trepidation at this point about re-entering the job market as a 55 yr old white male but, on the other hand there are some desperate employers out there. So kinda scary but at the same time I feel challenged, part of me wants to cop a tude like ” oh yeah? I’ll show you some shit.” Least its Spring, the season of renewal.

  129. There is a pic on twitter of Buttplug at a question and answer deal kissing his husband or WTF he is. I can’t imagine that going over well with blacks, normal white females and normal white males.

    I cut the chicken breasts into 3 or 4 pieces (they were big) so you only need to cook it 4 or so hours before adding the DELICIOUS sauce to cook for another hour. This over rice….niiiiiiiice. Although I don’t eat rice but my husband does and loves this.

    Also, CAULK!!

  140. Childbearing age in much of Ohio is 16-18.

  141. Mare’s breasts were big?

  142. Scott, that’s half the problem.

  143. I’m taking a bee hiatus. My bees died last fall, the hive was weak going through the year and didn’t even make it to the end of September never mind through the winter. Buying a package of new bees runs about $130 and if they die you’re buying new bees too often. During the summer I’m at camp and tend to ignore my hive. I’ll give it a go next year when I’ve forgotten how much of a pain in the ass it is. My friend who does bees has about 6 or 7 hives and he loses about half every year. Between the mites and the harsh winters it’s a challenge. I still have honey from past years so no rush.

  144. Buddy of mine lived in Cody Wyoming for a while. Cute little town, but it was little and very dull.

    The oil industry had a huge presence there, so there were many high paid engineers passing through.

    All the pretty local girls hitched their wagons to the engineers and almost all left over time.

    The dating pool that was left behind was very scary.

    You should try hunting in some of the smaller towns, ones without tattoo parlors.

  145. My friend had the same laissez faire attitude I did but he listened to the local bee guru (The Bee Whisperer … seriously) and now does all of the medications on schedule and wraps his hives with more insulation. Less failure but a lot more work.

  146. Those pills must be tiny.

  147. It’s the women pleasuring each other, the casual doggie style and whatnot.

    Mare cares for something…

  157. Daughter is saying she’ll have champagne so people can make their own mimosas with their brunch. So there you go.

    Didn’t get much done in the house. Here’s a picture of the shower wall already done. It just needs caulk. Do you see what I’ve been talking about?

  158. Holy shit puppeh! That hamster is committing infanticide….not in the usual way.

  159. Why didn’t everyone think of that?

    Very clever.

  160. That doesn’t look that bad.

    Caulk or corner molding will hide it.

  161. Does that mean you really don’t notice it and it doesn’t look as shoddy as say..a sliver would?

  162. Pretty sure that even with caulk, one is going to notice if they have a touch of the OCD. You won’t see it while sitting on the can.

  163. I think it looks fine. Beautiful job.

    It looks better than most of the tile in my house.

    If you can’t disappear it with a bead of caulk you can cover it with a piece of trim.

    I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it.

  164. Democrats are going to need a bigger stadium. They’ve run out of room to move the goalposts in this one.

  165. Nobody will notice that, it looks fine.

  166. Beasn, I’d grout it and add a little latex to the grout. Caulk discolors after a short time and will look worse.

  168. Duct tape.

    That’s what you need.

  169. Hotspur, from what I’ve been reading, the ‘professionals’ say you shouldn’t grout in the corners because movement. The walls and floors in this house are wavy, uneven, not level. We ran into the problem on that wall about two feet up. By that time, it was too late and we were too aggravated to rip it down, so we just cut down a 4 x 8 to the length we needed, as the sliver would’ve been too small and would have shown how out of whack the wall was.

    Shit, we even shimmed the fridge on the right side until we can figure out if we can adjust the wheels.

  170. Beasnsnsnsnsm after what you said I was expecting this:

    I think you can use grout to visually fix it!

  171. Now, on the other end of the tub, we’ve encountered the same problem in the first row. This time, we f*cked up in our rush to finish the corner the plumber needed to work in and used the wrong center line.

    It’s definitely been a royal pain in the learning experience. Next job I do (SYWM) will look like a pro did it.

  172. Beasn, that’s what the latex is for, to strengthen the joint. If it cracks eventually you can cut out the grout and redo it. Caulk will look bad from day one, and get worse real fast.

  173. Mare, it’s already grouted. Only thing that corner needs is caulk. In your link…the #2 wrap around peeve….I thought one was supposed to jigger the tiles around a center point on each wall. And our walls are so not straight, it would be difficult to wrap around properly.

  174. The planning part of a tile project is a significant part of the time spent on the job.

    But this is a rental, right? The renters are lucky they’re getting the real deal instead of a fibeglas surround.

  175. Old houses suck.

    Nothing is straight or square, and stuff moves.

    They aren’t for people with OCD.

  176. I understand, hotty. To grout or caulk in corners seems to be a point of back and forth with those in the business on various forums. Just going by our bathrooms, here at the primary residence, I’ve only had to change out the caulk once in 19 years. Grout is white…caulk is white. It only looks bad if I don’t clean the shower in a couple few weeks.

    The grout we’re using is Mapei CQ flexcolor. It’s ready to use

  177. Yes, we’re going to rent it out to our daughter.

  178. This bathroom is the very first ceramic tile job I ever did.
    (I did do vinyl floor tiles down in MIL’s apartment and the peel n stick in her bathroom. Other than ruining my socks in the glue, that wasn’t so bad as the husband did his best to make the walls level and straight which made the floor space easy to work in – the taper guys were complimentary)

  179. Since the problem presents itself in the first row above the tub, I’ve been mulling slivers on that side, depending on how bad the wall widens as it goes up.

  180. Hotspur is pro caulk, but he’s trying to keep it a secret.

  183. I am pretty sure where Mare stands on this subject.

  184. Looks good to me, Beasn.

  185. Looks good from here, Beasn! 😊📏📐🐹

  186. Thank you.
    The husband tells me to quit fretting about it because most people wouldn’t notice and if they did, wouldn’t care so long as it blends in and doesn’t leak. “It’s too late, shut up, and if you say you want to rip it out because your chi is offended, I’m gonna kick your ass.”
