    Hooray for UofL’s new President Dr. Bendapudi.... “speaking up when it matters”!! Here’s the announcement: In moments of crisis, the best communities find a way to come together. Over the last 24 hours our community has been fractured by the comments made by former UofL trustee John Schnatter. These comments were hurtful and unacceptable, and they do not reflect the values of our university. I have decided, with the support of our Board of...

    UofL's Dr. Neeli Bendapudi has renamed the football stadium to "Cardinal Stadium". Here’s the announcement: In moments of crisis, the best communities find a way to come together.

    As a UofL fan this lawsuit doesn’t bother me or delay me from “moving on”. It’s obviously very personal for the players. Love me some Luke Hancock..... you do you UofL 2013 NCAA Champion team!

    Summertime is my favorite time for nightly drinks and conversation on the deck! We are so lucky to have a great view of nature and varying wildlife, so there’s nothing better than chilling out with a glass of wine or beer as the sun is setting into the gradual darkness. Last night the group was drinking a white zinfandel & some 50 West. If we do fruity it’s usually mixing up a pitcher of frozen pink lemonade concentrate + vodka + soda...

    I read that they entered the caves during a period of dry weather – but subsequent downpours of rain blocked the narrow entrance/exit passages. I guess they found a dry ledge where they’ve since been trapped. RIP to the diver, so sad...

    I haven't in years but participated this year since I saw the Reds pushing Scooter Gennett. I remember voting all the time when I was a kid - with those punch-out ballots, lol.

    It sounds like they had soccer practice in a park complex and afterward planned to spend the afternoon in the nearby cave trails. The saddest part (before their discovery) were the pictures of their empty bikes lined up in the park.

    Wow, this is unbelievable... hooray to the rescuers and those providing support! Hopefully the boys and their soccer coach make a full recovery, it sounds like they are still too weak to be moved out immediately. I loved seeing that the US was involved in the rescue efforts.

    What makes them so special, even after years and years? I work with a guy “Harry”, and I’m friends with a woman in the neighborhood “Meghan”. The first time I met Meghan we were chit chatting about where we worked, etc. and she said Oh! Do you know Harry? He works where you work. We were really close friends in high school. I told her that of course I know Harry, everyone knows Harry, Harry is awesome! A few months later I ran into...

    The bathroom is in the corner of the basement – 1 wall concrete, 1 wall wood framing because there’s a room on the other side. Concrete floor. We installed a utility sink right away (where the “nice” sink will eventually go) and recently added a toilet next to it (both back up to the wood framing wall) but toilet is moving toward the concrete wall (corner). Privacy at this point is from folding privacy panels – yes we are the Beverly...

    The drain worries me slightly since it sits at an odd angle in the basement, i.e. it’s in a corner set up for one of the typical bathtub/shower contraptions that drain on the end, right under the shower head. Most of these free standing showers drain in the center. Yikes. Otherwise good skills in the rest you mentioned (ok not me personally but my assistant, lol). I guess I’m wondering if the free standing will work ok for a while, or...

    Has anyone installed a cheap, free standing shower? How did it work out, lol? I’m contemplating adding a shower in my basement for temporary use for a guest who will be here for an extended stay. I already have a toilet and sink. Trying to DIY for the most part, since I don’t have a ton of time/money to prepare.
