The Top 10 Baseball Films of All Time
One of my favorite baseball moments captured in a film won't be found on this list. That's partly due to the fact that the movie it appears in, City Slickers, isn't a baseball film, even if Billy Crystal opts for a Mets cap over a standard ten-gallon ...

The past three months have been pretty manic in the Domino household, thanks to my husband deciding winter was a good time to start refurbishing the hall, stairs and landing, seeing as he couldn’t get out and work in the garden. The work definitely needed doing, from it’s acid yellow walls full of bumps and cracks and a carpet I was totally ashamed of, although beautiful when it was new some 25 years ago. It wasn’t too bad with no doors when the heating was on but, oh boy, was it drafty when the boiler was off. As soon as the festivities were over, we called in a plumber to replace the downstairs radiators, thus for several days we were without heating. When the radiators were connected again, it was found we had a fault on the boiler, which necessitated another plumber calling several days later to make the repair. We then had the plasterers in, which again, necessitated all the outside doors open so they could do the messy mixing part outside. We were turning our dark mahogany wood into white, so several coats were needed. Then commenced the long, slow task of painting the walls. When the painting was complete, the carpenters were called in to fit the new doors and a new wooden floor downstairs. Again, the front door was required to be open all day so they could do all the sawing and sanding outside.
Each clock face is CNC cut from 3/4” solid wood and features a simple marker design. Clocks come in a bunch of shapes and sizes, but this clock made from a bike wheel is certainly unique. The resulting wall clock is quite big, but definitely something interesting to hang in your pad if you’re a bicyclist. The Bicycle Wheel Clock is made While watches are getting smarter and smarter, wall clocks generally remain their old stupid self. Whether you’re actually a geek or not, you won’t be able to withstand these unique clocks. What time is it. The problem was that each city decided its own unique clock that is as old Apple stakes a good deal of its reputation on its rigorous approach to design excellence, so it's rare that an iPhone inductive charger, magnetic photo... Ever wonder why you can't find a clock that looks more like a 1970s amplifier. Raw Dezign‘s faceted wall clocks are each piece to give every clock a unique shape, so no two are the same. Each clock is hand built in the label’s Birmingham UK studio and measures approximately 12″ in diameter. The PolyGlobe wall clocks are At first, the company offered a variety of mostly mantel and wall clocks, but an extensive line of novelty and figurine clocks was added.
Let’s talk about our new shelf in the laundry room, which is sporting a sweet arm band waterfall edge and some light natural stain. It was a simple DIY project involving some wood and some stain/sealer for a butcher block like effect. We deviated from our usual mocha stain choice because we were inspired by a few rooms we’ve seen with light cabinets and tile mixed with with natural wood to add some texture and warmth. But first we have to talk about installing our appliances since I meant to cover that a while ago. It wasn’t all that big of deal since it was just re-attaching what I had unattached during the demo process. But one challenge was setting the washer pan under the washer and attaching it to our new overflow drain, so I thought I’d talk through how we did it (we couldn’t find many detailed tutorials about that step). The washer pan is the thing that usually sits under a washing machine when it’s on the second floor – that way if it springs a leak, the water hopefully won’t flood your upstairs, rot the floor, and send the washer plunging through the joists onto... All of the contractors & plumbers we talked to actually said it was an optional thing to have a pan and an overflow drain (there’s no code dictating it in our area). One even told us that he wasn’t sure it made much of a difference (his opinion was that if your washer’s gushing water, a pan and a drain aren’t going to do much).
