Rated 4 out of 5 by from what a difference washing the car makes with this extension hose, no more moving the pressure washer around the car. Hopefully they will make a return next season and bring the hummingbirds with them!I've been growing "Flare" for years in my many containers on my deck and for some strange reason I tried "Lady in Red" this year.Bad choice! My deck in past years has been a feeding frenzy for numerous hummingbirds.This year, I think I can sense the hummingbird's disappointment.Very poor blooms and they've already petered out.Last year, "Flare" would still be going strong.This year all I have is seed heads, but at least the Goldfinch have discovered it!\n\nGoing back to Flare next year.This pepper did not disappoint. Not the best flavor and kind of bland.Planted indoors from seed then in ground in May.Produced many small but tasty fruits(?) from august thru oct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't have to powder them at all, not once.This is a fast grower. I would not recommend this to anyone who is not able to put this on easily. I found one that works with water application verses the adhesive stickiness.Thumbs down for DIY 'er out there!!!Application spray is an absolute must and you need to soak, i mean soak, the window and the back of the film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After three hours charging the charge lasted long enough to drill 3 holes!\n\nDo not waste your time and money with this product. I really like the way the blades move when the fan is on. It really puts you in a creative and productive frame of mind. I only have Hampton Bay fans. They are really quiet even on the highest setting. Definately the best brand of ceiling fans out there. The remote is a plus too.An excellent grill for the money.Very even cooking. Don't like the igniter.It takes a couple of times turning the knob to lite.I can tell you the grill is big enough to fit food for a family of 6.I would recommend it highly.Great addition to my home.

Surface Preparation

  • Complete all patching, repairs and sanding before applying KILZ General Purpose Interior.

  • The surface must be clean, free of dust, grease, wax, mold, mildew, peeling paint and wallpaper paste. If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute. Rinse well and allow to dry.

  • For maximum adhesion, scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. KILZ PREMIUM and KILZ 2 are recommended for use over properly prepared glossy surfaces.

  • Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming. Note: KILZ PREMIUM and KILZ 2 are recommended for mildew-prone surfaces.

  • KILZ General Purpose Interior may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces. New masonry must be allowed to cure (dry) at least 30 days before applying KILZ General Purpose Interior.
