    Ummm, yeah. Mount a ladder to make a bookshelf. Or spend a couple of bucks on some boards and brackets and you get a bookshelf that doesn’t require you to rearrange your library every time you need to change a lightbulb.

    Whoever came up with this idea, I want some of what they’re smoking.

    …..Tip #5 in that post is great, but I’ve found it’s a better ride in conjunction with a Hitachi Magic Wand!

    …..I’ve got a better one for sweat stains: Toss it in the washer with a half cup of tide. If it doesn’t come out, it’s either a yard-work item, or a rag.

    …..I was always a big fan of the cinderblock and plywood school of shelving. No earthquakes where I live…
