****ie, clear your PMs, your box if full and won't accept new messages.
****ie, you have been invited to join a social group- Galactically Stupid I tried to PM you but you're not set up to receive PMs.
Hope you can help. I want to relaminate my countertop,do I do the same as when I built or do I need to prepare the old somehow? Thanks
****ie, I think that has something to do with the spam filter TOH added a while back. It seems to trap for certain words or unknown links. The first time I posted with a link to Van Dyke restorers I got the same message. I think it was because of the word Dyke in the link.
You may want to check out the plumbing thread. There is a question there about replacing a pressure tank. I plagiarized a description you once gave someone on how to re-charge a pressure tank, suggesting they try this before going for the replacement. I had copied your explanation to my hard drive at the time since I figured I would need it at some point in the future for our pressure tank. Luckily our tank is still performing and I haven't had to use it myself yet, but thanks for the info.
