    Discussing politics and religion

    I hate politics and political dicussion, but why do you think we lost beside North Vietnam had Hanoi Jane on their side? My opinion is in Nam we weren't acustom to their style of gorilla warfare, and in Afganistan you couldn't tell who the enemy was as they all dressed the same and again...

    Looking for a textured carpet that is hopefully dog friendly

    First off what kind of dog is it that you call small? Some people call a Great Dane small. Is it frisky and runs and plays a lot? I had a English Shepard get a nail caught in a berber type carpet and paniced and pull and wrappred the yarn around his leg and paw and the owner thought they were...

    Would you consider this to be a professional installation?

    I think you let them bully you. You are actually the one in the power to bully them and tell them you will be with holding the check until it is resolved. Just my opinion.

    Ragged edge on Carpet install; can this be fixed and if so, how?

    Ragged edge on Carpet install; can this be fixed and if so, how?

    I agree with the installer as to why it lloks ragged. If you could get them to open the seam and bevel the higher carpet with a beveler made for beveling, then it wouldn't be so noticable. Othan that I'd see if they could sissor cut it. Sales person should have mentioned it at the time of the...
