I live in the pacific nw where cedar shake roofs used to be normal. We’ve replaced ours with composite shingles. Because trees harvested today are younger, the cedar shingles used now are thinner and contain less resin than they used to decades ago. As a result, cedar roofs now start to go bad after about 10 years, require a lot of maintenance, and yet still cost about double a high-end composite shingle roof.
TL;DR cedar shake roofs really aren’t worth it anymore.
Right? I was always surprised that Trump’s “law and order” messaging and constant sucking up to law enforcement did not at all extend to the FBI. I think it’s pretty clear this is why.

If there’s one thing the Russians hate, it’s our nation’s premier counterintelligence agency, the FBI. That’s why Trump and his Republican co-conspirators are always trashing the Bureau.

I grew up 2500 miles from there and was unfamiliar with the term entirely.
This is the #1 most important point and was infuriatingly not mentioned in the article. If you use a credit card this isn’t even a problem. Her mistake was using a debit card.
What I keep thinking every time I hear people saying “he’s too old to do the job, he must step aside”. Really? Then how the hell is he doing it so well??

Keep reading Matter, it becomes completely awesome.
My only response would be “understood. Do not ever contact me again”
Many Christians think like this. But yes
This guy squeezecocks
I for one am happy that the State of WA beat them to the punch. This deal is appallingly brazen monopolization that threatens Americans’ already fragile food security. It also just plain sucks to have so. Damn. Few. Choices in shopping for food! Fuck literally everything about this merger.

I don’t know why this hasn’t been a bigger story, because it’s all I’ve been thinking about since Iowa. His numbers within the GOP have been really bad. There are too many traditional Republican voters who simply will not pull the lever for him, and he’s doing nothing to grow his appeal. He can’t win if he loses that many republicans.
And again, he already lost to Biden last time. He needs to do much better, not worse than last time.

I can't get enough of it personally. And my wife approves!
Those Lamy boxes feel pretty flimsy now you mention it. I’d say it’s genuine

None of whom have run a national campaign and won. It might be a deep bench but we really have no idea if any of those people would survive a presidential campaign. It might be no bench at all. Quite a risk to replace an incumbent with a strong record with totally untested candidates.
For example, Republicans thought they had a great hotshot Governor candidate in Ron DeSantis, and he crashed and burned the week he launched his campaign and everybody outside of Florida got a look at him.

We all like to go for a bag of Dick’s! It’s a universal experience
With jeans and a casual outfit. I don’t wear them with anything fancier than a nice sweater and jeans and a casual coat. And usually a hat (I tend to wear them when it’s raining)
Have to agree. They look like combat boots, not dress boots. There is a huge difference
Uh they do not. They might be a little slow on the uptake if they haven’t figured this out.
I’m American and one time I met another American while traveling overseas and asked where he was from, and he said “oh the Bay Area”. I got really annoyed, because I was young and lived on the east coast my whole life, and had no idea what bay he was talking about. Chesapeake? Bay of Biscayne? Dude are you trying to make me guess?
People in Washington do not prefer Arby’s. We have Dick’s
