Hi erl,

I usually do a good bit of lurking at GW and the Home Forums over coffee in the AM, hoping to learn a little something and am occasionally able to offer some help.

I'm a real do-it-yourselfer, whenever possible, so I like reading and learning.

I too am not selling anything but will add that I really like the Solatube I had installed a year ago.

Recently I bought some solar screen to cover my 'regular' flat skylights and it has helped cut the sun, thus the heat, a lot. I'll remove the screen later this fall when the temperature cools down a lot, so I can benefit from the sun, and free heat from it.

I do it myself (fix, clean, paint) so long as I know I can do it right. I had some tile laid in a good bit of the house earlier this year and I hired that done, but now think I could probably do it myself, after having watched it being done. A friend who does it for a living, did it as a side job, though and gave me a good deal on doing it.

I'm in Indiana and wish the Home Forums showed our location like the Garden Forums do.

Had a great weekend. With help, I finally got my local channels (antennae with amplifier, converter and VCR) all hooked up to the TV after things got disconnected a few weeks ago when I hired the carpets being professionally cleaned (for a change). I'm kind of challenged when it comes to all the wires behind the TV center. I have everything on a surge protector bar that I can easily turn off when not in use.
