I'm using used railroad ties for a landscaping border. No pressure/tension involved. The ties I got are rotted inside and in one side and have good appearance on their other three sides. I was considering using portland cement to fill in the voids, but would like to minimize how much water used to cure the cement in order to prevent further rotting of the tie itself. Would the cement cure if I don't use any water?

I want to make a little cement and stone patio for a miniature garden with Portland Cement. Do I NEED to actively mix the cement with water to activate it or could I just use a spray bottle to spray it to the point of saturation? I would have 1/4"-1/2" of sand underneath and the cement would be at maximum 1" thick, though1/2" is more likely. I had watched some YouTube videos of diy cement planters that only used the Portland cement and water and I thought it would be good for miniature garden patios, pathways, etc. Thanks for any help!

Has anyone ever worked with MgO cement? Where can buy it in US? MgO replaces the Ca found in portland cement. MgO cement makes a concrete that will incorporate cellulose and other organics into the crystalline structure. absorbs CO2 instead of generating it, is an order of magnitude stronger than portland, does not require wetting, and cures in minutes. So basically, you can take some burlap or old blanket and paint this stuff on, then fill the void with straw and cement and make super strong, light and thin structures. I have looked for it locally but it does not seem to be available to consumers in the US, probably because of the lack of sheep crap which is the typical source of Mg. It is amazing stuff. This is pretty much the only article I could find about the stuff: http://greenhomebuilding.com/articles/ceramicrete.htm

I was already thinking of acrylic spray since I live in rainy Portland. Would acrylic be enough to weather and friction protect it? Should I cover the whole shebang with clear packing tape then spray acrylic? Would that make the clear tape opaque? Other ideas? Not experienced with paint, adhesives, cover stuff, etc.

I recently bought a bench mold so I could build a cement garden bench The mold has some delicate designs in it. I tried using quikrite 5000 and other cements with basic aggregates already premixed, but it did not come out crisp. The designs were pitted by aggregates I think. I am wondering if a simple Portland cement with only sand would work? I also incorporate rebar as well?

I live in the Panhandle area of Idaho. I'm very interested in growing bamboo for various projects. Has anyone had any luck with this plant in a northern climate? I have seen it grown in Portland, Ore., but its weather is milder than here. This area gets quite a bit of moisture and winters are not normally extremely cold -- compared to areas further east. Can anyone suggest a good book or website for getting started with bamboo?

Hi! Just rediscovered my love of roller skating, after 15 years away from it. I am wondering if I should buy a pair of outdoor skates and use them on rinks sometimes, or rink skates and risk them outdoors? I'd check the wheels for rocks before I rode on the rinks, of course. I've never done outdoor riding, but I can't go to the rink all the time, and I'd like to work this into my daily exercise. I'd also like to get into good enough shape to join Portland's active Roller Derby scene. Thoughts?

Arts Place is looking for artist instructors for our Summer 2015 Arts in the Parks program. Arts in the Parks works with children in rural communities across East Central Indiana and West Central Ohio to introduce them to the arts and foster their creativity. Skills taught in past years include ceramics, fiber art, poetry, theatre performance, puppetry, dance, sculpture and so much more. Classes run from early June through the beginning of August at approximately 15 different sites throughout our service area. We are looking for enthusiastic, creative, and accomplished artist instructors who have a passion for sharing their craft with children aged 6-14. Our teaching artists generally have at least a four-year degree in the arts, but significant experience will also be considered. The selected candidates will have sizable input with the Arts in the Parks coordinator on the community arts projects and workshop curriculum. We are seeking instructors who are flexible, love working with children of all ages, can teach art in new and interesting ways, and are passionate about community building. Teaching artists will be contracted for one- to two-week residencies. Our artists are placed with compatible local families in pleasant surroundings. This is an important part of our residency experience as local families assist the teaching artist in making meaningful connections to the community. Arts Place is a rurally oriented arts council that operates arts centers in Portland, Indiana, Hartford City, Indiana and St. Mary’s, Ohio. It is our mission to foster the creative spirit in anyone. To apply, please send a resume, samples of your work, class samples or community project ideas, and a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 30th, 2014. To inquire about positions and the program prior to applying, contact Lauren Lane at (270) 726-4809 ext. 230 or at email@example.com.

Artists are responsible for their own meals and travel to and from the area.

I have spent a great deal of time working on this question yet, I have no solid answer to go on. I tend to enjoy acquiring a skill set which would be very useful come TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it). I am far from a prepper, however I still entertain a slight possibility and see no problem with learning how to do a little more than cope. These skills extend from knowing where to grow, gather, and how to store penicillin to simple things like a yeast starter 100% from scratch. Brewing and distilling are also handy because it makes a great trade item. These are all things you never see in the Walking Dead or any other TEOTWAWKI cinema. One of the more important skills I believe would be conjuring fortress walls from rocks in the form of a little thing we know as concrete which we all take for granted. Now I could mix portland cement and filler with some water all day long and make a pretty cool fortess, but seriously. All the home depots in my state wouldn't have enough quick rite for that. So today I wan't to know what general rocks and minerals (that you can find in nature) can you combine to make cement. I know there are all kinds of fancy names for these, but what I really need is some good old generalities. Tell me to go outside grab a handful of clayish dirt, but it in a kiln with some lime and grind it up. I'm not looking for top of the line stuff here, this just needs to be able to hold a general form for a few years and be a little bullet resistant. This is for a crude fort, not the tallest building in the world or the hoover dam. A simple mortar would also be nice, although there really aren't any stones around to put together, bricks aren't super hard to make with as much clay as we have in our soil. So join me and maybe I will put together an instructible on all the skills you actually need but don't have!

This announcement is posted on behalf of Jim Newton, founder of TechShop. September 23, 2013 I have some very exciting news to share with you about the TechShop community and our aggressive expansion plans. Today, the "Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act", also known as the JOBS Act, became law in the United States. The JOBS Act allows a small company to advertise that it is seeking to raise money through the sale of securities. Before the JOBS Act, it had been illegal for companies to advertise the offering of securities, and the law restricting that advertising had been in place for 80 years! That restriction tied the hands of small companies and made it very difficult or even impossible for them to legally attract funding. The JOBS Act, which is a bipartisan law overwhelmingly passed by the Senate and the House and signed into law by President Obama, became law today. It will be invaluable to start-up companies because it will make it easier for them to seek investment, and will lead to the creation of many new companies and many new jobs. Today, in concert with the JOBS Act becoming law, TechShop has launched an aggressive campaign to raise up to $60 million in funding through the sale of TechShop stock in amounts of $25,000 or more, and through the acceptance of loans of $25,000 or more from individuals. These funds will be used to build and support new local TechShop locations. Here is a link to the official press release about TechShop's $60 million crowd-funding campaign: When I opened the first TechShop in Menlo Park CA back in 2006, it was only possible to crowd-fund the money we needed because it was legal to advertise our fundraising efforts in the state of California. California is one of only two states in the United States that allows such advertising...the other is the State of Texas. It was only because we were allowed to advertise that we were able to reach out to our community and ask individual people to loan us $25,000 each. We crowd-funded TechShop San Francisco and TechShop San Jose the same way, raising about $2.5 million for each of those locations in a matter of weeks. Before the JOBS Act, TechShop has crowd-funded almost $10 million so far to open our existing locations, but we had to do it either within California, or through direct communication with potential investors and lenders. It was difficult to do this because we could not advertise outside of California, so our tried-and-true method of crowd-sourced fundraising from our community was not scalable outside of the state. This has limited our expansion. Now, because of the JOBS Act, we can pursue funding from individuals across the country and fulfill our mission to provide every person in every community with access to TechShop's tools, resources and information. This will allow us to drive the restoration of American manufacturing, help to create new companies and new jobs, and empower even more people to be makers! Here are the next cities in which we would love to build TechShop locations: Baltimore MD Boston MA Cedar Valley IA Chandler AZ (opening Nov 2013) Chicago IL Grand Rapids MI Los Angeles CA Menlo Park CA (moving to a new location) New York City NY Pittsburgh PA Portland OR Seattle WA St. Louis MO Washington DC (in Arlington VA) If your city is not listed above, here's the most exciting part: As part of our $60 million fundraising campaign, we have set up a way on our web site for people to vote to determine which community the next TechShop will be located! For more information about how individuals, companies, institutions, and governments can invest or become lenders in TechShop, and how they can vote for their hometown to be the next to have a new TechShop location, please visit our investment page. Please help us spread the word so we can open new locations in the communities that want, and need, TechShop the most. Sincerely, Jim Newton Founder and Chairman, TechShop, Inc. http://www.techshop.ws/

DISCLAIMER: I bleeped (****) out any explicit words...... Though I could have missed s-something. And explicit's definition is different between people Side note: If anyone thinks this is a tad (or more than a tad) over the top, PM me or reply saying so. I'll delete it. - - - If you think you'll be offended by this ad... DON'T READ IT. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - POS 1994 Honda Civic LX for sale - $600 (Marietta, GA) Date: 2010-07-11, 4:49PM EDT Reply to: firstname.lastname@example.org [Errors when replying to ads?] That's right, you can own a piece of shi... history right now for only $600. You may wonder why I didn't post a picture and that's because with a car this crappy, a photo is not needed. Just imagine the worst possible car and then picture a camel taking a dump in the trunk and you'll have a close approximation. You don't need to worry about me lying... it really is a POS. There is no risk of you getting over here and finding out it's really a gorgeous gem worth thousands... that doesn't happen...ever. But if for some reason that's actually happened to you, then you are acquainted with a crazy cosmic karma that has never thought to even piss in my face. I almost had a date on PlentyofFish and you know what happened? The f***ing AC died. For two years while I was not dating, it worked fine. The day after I get digits, the AC craps out. The car also has a weird hesitation problem that was not fixed even when I replaced the fuel filter. What could cause all of these things? Satan in the drive train...that's right... it's rare, but it happens to guys like me. This car is actually demon-possessed so you can forget about any sort of easy fix. Jesus said you need faith to cast out demons like this and believe me there are only two people on the planet that have that sort of faith. One guy lives in a cave in India and the other guy is dead. And you can forget about the guy in the cave helping you because, if you can find him, he's just going to tell you how physical setbacks are really spiritual blessings...blah blah blah...yada yada yada. Exactly. Don't expect sympathy from any motherf***er that sits around in his underwear in a cave. Other problems with this car include busted boots on the tie-rod ends, busted wheel hub boots, broken AC, leaking power steering system, ABS light always on, check-engine light comes on occasionally, driver window sometimes comes off the track, paint has permanent dirt in it (yes, it's f***ing permanent...you can't scrub it out with anything less than sandpaper or some highly explosive chemical that causes cancer in 49 states and erectile dysfunction in the 50th.) The car does drive, but that's about all it's good for. Good luck getting it to pass emissions. I've never tried as it's still registered in Clarke County. If you want to date, this car is probably not for you. On a positive note though, I can assure you no one has ever had sex in it. It would take a miracle to get a girl to even sit in this car, much less take her clothes off in it. Other possible uses for this car included entertainment at frat parties. You could charge people $5 a swing with a baseball bat, although you still probably wouldn't recover your investment. You might be able to sell it to the Mythbusters and get the to test the myth, "Is it possible that a car could really be this s***ty?" Adam Savage and Kari Byron will have a field day and close it off with "Myth f***ing confirmed" and a side comment from Kari about how whatever d*****bag use to own it must have never been laid. There are some positives like a beautiful Lumar 32% tint job, keyless entry with remote trunk release, an Alpine CD Player, and Pioneer speakers in the door. So at worst, you can sit in your driveway and listen to music with a bottle of Jergens and a picture of Eliza Dushku. I really wouldn't recommend taking it on the road until you replace the tie-rod ends. You might crash into a bus full of nuns and then the Pope will reign motherf***ing hail fire down on your betrodden a** with more fury than the inquisition because you actually decided to drive and be seen in such an amazing POS, killing 20 of his lovely Sisters. One other thing you might use this car would be pushing it off a cliff. If you've ever wanted to see what it's like first hand for a car to fall hundreds of feet and smash against rock, then here's your chance. Although don't be surprised if this demon-possessed sleigh from hell manages to f*** up your good time even in that bold scenario. I don't know how it would, but it would probably figure out a way. If there are any parents out there reading this, don't let your children fall into the situation I'm in. I would never have ended up with this car if I had pursued a real career. But instead I majored in math where the best job I can find now is up in Portland with a bunch of bran muffin eating hippies, jerking off Moose for 75 cents a smile for some wildlife conservation sperm bank. Let your kids do something with good with their future, like wait tables at Denny's. Oh yeah... it's white, 4 doors, and automatic. Whooptie-f***in-do!
