Here are some things we are looking for- we don’t expect any one person to fulfill any of these things, but you should at elast be interested in a lot of it. We are serious, we work hard, we have a lot of fun, and we get a lot done.

not an apologist about cops
not a snitch

ok with cooking vegan for communal meals and respecting different diets and allergies (more…)

Forgot to add this update a while back, we fixed the downstairs bathroom. The wax seal on the toilet had begun leaking. That meant  toilet water was seeping under the floor boards. By the time we discovered it, it was too late for those floor boards.

The Wingnut solution, DIY!

We removed the sink and sink cabinet. Then we drained and removed the toilet. Then we had the smelly job of tearing up the old wet floor boards. Then we cleaned the floor, a lot.

Next, we installed tile-board. Then we put a new wax ring on the toilet and re-installed the toilet. After that we put down tile mortar, then tile. Then we grouted over the tiles (which match the tile in the upstairs bathroom). Then we reinstalled the sink cabinet and sink. TAAADAAA.

LEts just hope that wax ring stays good.
