Be honest: If you cannot manage your days and keep your word, FCing is not for you so don't bother to try for this. L Offer: New Mens W/O Tag Black Gap Pants <> Ravenna Springs Gifted 2y - Got these in a fever at the Mercer Island Thrift Store only to get home and realized they are much bigger in the waist than the 33 inches on the tag. Maybe 35 inches waist, and even a longer than the 32 inseam listed. Closer to my usual 34 inches. At the time I bought them all the Gap tags were still on. I even had tried them on.

Last used about a week ago. It was built in 1995. Got it second-hand in 1999 from a toner recycling company who said "this machine is rated for 1 million copies." It's big, sturdy, and made for high-volume corporate settings. Just found a refurb one going for $300. Drivers and manuals for various computer operating systems available online from hewlett packard. Use search. My experiences with getting recycled cartridges from Cartridge World has been satisfactory. I can't recall the exact price, but it pencils out to about 1¢ a copy. One cartridge is good for about 5000+ copies. Current toner has maybe 2500+ copies remaining. The problem is not with the printer, it's with the withdrawal of "support" by Apple and Hewlett Packard. So, now, with only 98,800 copies something in the new Mac OS 10.13 has changed a setting inside the printer and I cannot find a way to reset it, even for working with older Macs I own running older operating systems. For a few days each computer would somehow luck into printing one last time, and then I'd get "printer offline" messages. There are a couple of other reset options, but I'm not confident enough that the instructions tell everything I need to know to try them. Please note: Not interested in sending this excellent printer for "recycling" of it's parts and toner. If rated for 1 million copies and with less than 100,000 used, there's at least 900,000 more copies to be made. This would be like sending a well maintained 1995 Volvo with 25,000 miles on the engine to the junk yard. Makes. No. Sense. Thus, I would like to donate this to an organization or person who can get it reset and working as there are more than 900,000 copies of life left. When you respond, let me know that you will use it, or reset it and contribute it to a person or org that will appreciate getting it. I'll also need a call back number and we can take up the other details from there.

Offer: Fireplace Ashes for Garden Soil <> Ravenna Springs Expired 3y - Personally can't claim expertise, but found this Wash. Post article that lays out the details... If you have a wood stove or a fireplace, one of spring’s rituals is shoveling out the ashes. And if you’re in tune with the philosophy of recycling plant residues back into the natural cycle of soil fertility, you’ll want a better destination for those ashes than the trash bag. Unlike the decomposed remains of leaves, stems and other green plant parts, burned wood doesn’t contain nitrogen. But it does provide phosphorous, potassium, calcium, boron and other elements that growing plants need. It’s also very alkaline and useful for raising the pH in gardens. You’ll need about twice as much of it as lime, but it will supply nutrients at the same time, and if you’re a wood-burner it’s free. Before you go scattering the ashes about, get a soil test done, so you know whether it will benefit you. Read more ... Mine are ashes from windfall limbs or tree pieces that I find with a "free" sign curbside. I have 3 small bags. Please take them all. I only ask you send BOTH several possible pick-up times & a contact phone number. Happy gardening.
