the most popular stupid questions would have to be:

"how much money should I elect to have deposited in my flexible spending account?"
and
"which dental plan should I pick for 2012?"

But don't you know every one of them and their needs?

exterior doors to my office all painted, refit, properly shimmed to fit nicely against the weather stripping, new sweeps installed, new door knob installed. way less drafty than they were a week ago, and better looking too (went from cobalt blue to dark red for exterior color).

next up: Mrs. DAB's office doors (also a pair of 30" doors).

and need to work on the laundry room table......

Love dark red exterior doors! It was either dark red or black for our front doors when we had the house painted this month. We went with black, but the kitchen is dark red.

we have 6 sets (BR, DR, LR, my office, Mrs. office, studio) of exterior double doors, and another 3 single exterior doors (master bath, laundry, studio)....that's a lot of exterior doors to maintain.

replaced the worst 3 with steel doors this year, rehabbing other wood doors to buy another few years before replacing them too with steel doors in later years. except for the front doors, all the doors are full light doors. lets a lot of sunshine in.

nah, more a practical consideration. the dry air and intense sunshine really beat up wood doors...they have peeling paint, wood shrinkage (shrinkage is bad, very bad), rotting...all bad things, but not so with steel.

i think we are too far off the beaten path to worry about zombies, and we can see them coming from a fair distance away...plenty of time to sound the alarm.

I was going to post that HERE in good old damp/hot FLORIDA that even the sun is wet....and so steel doors RUST like mad if directly exposed to ANY splash from rain/gutters/floods/etc......and to boot the inner cores are mostly all chip/flake board....and swell up to expand the steel from inside, and you wooden belEEEEEEve the messes I have seen here doing remodeling....

another reason MY house is on a hill and masonry....

rainstorm just now, really heavy...uphill neighbor has a concrete back yard like I used to have in G'burg Md.....and so mine had a curb and free flow down hill to street, no sweat, this idiot has a curb in his back yard and then puts a GRATE over the only 4" drain pipe, and insists on putting it over there, of course those leaves from the useless trees matte over the drain then instead of just washing down with the water, and so.....it over flows and floods my atrium and washes 500 lbs of sand down my driveway vagina.....

we had to replace the front door in our MD house several years ago, went with fiberglass, as the moisture would not affect it like it would affect wood or steel.

but in the arid desert, steel works just fine.
