How much would you pay for vintage pumps?
I have some vintage yellow pumps by candies that I want to sell. The color is a brightening yellow (no fading) and they are peep toes. A very tiny scuff, but that's the only damage.
Question answered by Sur La Mer
I don't buy shoes that have tiny scuffs and without trying them on too. Actually, I don't buy USED SHOES, no matter how mint they look.
$5 - $8. They're vintage, how old back are we talking about? I work @ Salvation Army Senior Rummage Sale (cashier every month, where I do volunteer work) where ALL SHOES & PURSES $1, doesn't matter how old or who made them.
Shoes only get cheaper as they get older, they're not like cars.
Who decided you have to spend 2 months salary on an engagement ring?
I cannot find out who originally decided 2 months salary was what you should spend on a ring. Is it the jewelers, trying to pump up sales? It might be tradition, but does anyone know why? I do not want to walk around with a 15k ring, it's insane. Thanks, Mary
Question answered by Blunt
This is a adaptation of a ancient tradition. The engagement ring is an offering and it symbolizes the prospective groom's financial standing. In other times, a woman would pick a husband for the financial security and often, a marriage proposal would include a full account of thir capital.
So that's how if he earns that much, you should get a good ring.
Can anyone recommend a replacement pump for my Pioneer pet fountain?
I have purchased the PioneerPet "BigMax" ceramic pet fountain and while I am happy with the ceramic unit, the pump emits a lout buzzing noise no matter what position it is in. Amazon seems to sell a variety of small water pumps, can anyone recommend a model that is as quiet as possible and would fit in my fountain's filter assembly?
Question answered by
http://www.pioneerpet.com/CategoryProductList.jsp?cat=Fountains+and+Feeders&offset=12 - there are two pumps for sale but no pictures. However, I'd go to customer service tab and call or e-mail them.
How can I find the last sale price of a piece of real estate?
I am in the process of trying to buy a house, but the owner refuses to bring the house up to code, claiming they are losing money on the low price they agreed to sell it to me already. They claim that major work is now up to me, because they are losing almost $15,000 from the previous sale price. How can I tell if they are telling me the truth or not? I have tried looking for sale records online, but can only find records dating back four years. Who should I talk to about this?
Question answered by Drew
There are two thing at play hear.
1 you want to know what there buying price was to if there are lying? This can be done at the assessors office of your county.
2 what is a fair deal and what they got the house for relay is not your concern, would they of last year tell you how much they where going to make as they were pumping up the now breaking bubble. "I do not think so"
Be prepared to walk or you will lose, also tell them that they can not montage it with out it being up to code, and do not move on the price.
Ask them if this is there only house if not it was bought as a flip house and that is there loss, if they are the one holding the bag. One last thing to do is to put a dead line on the offer of three days,or you will not deal for thirty day as you go looking els where. "let them pay another mortgage payment and is going down the hole.
One last thing check out this web site it tell how they made the bubble and why you relay have the upper hand.
How much more are you willing to pay for pay-at-the-pump convenience?
Example, Gas Station A is 2.79 a gallon, while Gas Station B is 2.72 a gallon with no pay at the pump option.
For me, I would say 5 cents would be my limit. What about you?
Question answered by firstname.lastname@example.org
Time is money. If I spend 15 minutes in line behind someone buying cigs or lotto; I will go next door and pay more to get out fast.
If it was just paying I could think about waiting in line.
Cigs and lotto are always a long sale. [no not the hard box, the soft box, no super lotto auto no kicker and then three scratch and win Elvis caddy, can you redeem these winning tickets...]
So if I am in a hurry, I use the pay-at-pump. If I have nothing to do; then $0.05 might get me into the store. If the store is known for long lines; then I will not usually bother.
What is this glass dish that has a fog coming out of it?
Years ago at a christmas sale in our mall, there was these nifty little glass dishes that are on stands that have some kind of ultrasonic light in them that makes water evaporate looking like steam/fog. I need to raise the humidity in my egg incubator, and the apparatus that is in this bowl would help me. But I don't know what it is called. Help. Please, my eggs depend on it, they are dying left and right because I can't keep the humidity high enough!
Where can I find them?
Question answered by
You can get what you are describing by looking at table top fountains or water features, either locally or on the internet where they are called fog machines. However, for an incubator, I think you would probably be better off either getting a humidifier (like the kind designed to sit beside a bed and help a sick person - therefore at a drug store) or put in a small fountain from the same water feature place. Hardware stores also sell them and the pump is about a 2" cube and they often have a tube with a spray head on top - they are put under water, with the tube sticking above the surface and make a nice spray that will evaporate.
You can partially solve the problem instantly by hanging a wet towel in the incubator.

What percentage of gasoline is paid for at the pump instead of in the store?
I am looking to find statistics to determine the impact of the trend to pay-at-the-pump.
Any statistics that would identify the split (i.e. XX% of all gas pumped in 2007 was paid for at the pump) or the impact on non-gasoline sales at convenience stores with pay-at-the-pump (i.e. stores that added the pay at the pump feature saw a decline/increase in food and snack sales of XX%).
Question answered by Whats Up Doc
Being a manager of a convenience store the average is 25 to 28 percent paid at the pump.
Should a sump pump automatically start working once the electricity is turned back on, or what should I do?
The electricity in my vacant house was temporarily turned off and my basement flooded, but it drained out. Is there something I need to check on the sump pump to make sure it will continue to work properly, or will it continue to work automatically now that the power is back on?? Please help, I don't need my basement to flood again, I'm trying to sale it.
Question answered by MJH
You may want to check the float. When the water level raises the float, the pump turns on. Once the float drops the pump will stop. If you raise the float with your hand the pump should start. if it doesn't start the float or the pump could be bad. Also.......is there power at the pump?
How long do I have to let tap water sit before I can put in my goldfish?
Its a one gallon tank with a filter and an air pump. How long should I let the water sit for?
Question answered by
usually your bowl (thats what i call smaller fish tanks under 5 gallon tank) in a cycle process which takes the water to set in and grow the good bacteria about 6-8 weeks.
I would not suggest you to put the goldfish in non cycle bowl because it can cause stress, high ammonia (as the goldfish are massive waste producers) and of course the goldfish stunted growth. NO FISH CAN'T LIVE IN THE BOWL!.its true i would not even put a single betta fish in 1 gallon tank -.- especially goldfish who grows up to 8inches - 12inches or even more , the bowls most often kill fish even if they do have filter etc. but in that size fish bowl fish willl become sick and might die in few weeks , few months or won't survive even 3 yrs as the goldfish can live up to 45yrs .
Usually of course the pet shops sales the baby goldfish under a year old and they tell a lies that goldfish needs at least few gallons BUT no, a double tailed goldfish such as oranda,ryukin,black moor, bubble eyes,butterfly goldfish etc. they need at least 80Liters for one or 20 Gallons for the first goldfish and 10 Gallons for another goldfish when they are adults .
A single tailed goldfish such as comet,common,shebukin etc. they grow up to 12'' or even bigger . the minimum size for one single tailed goldfish is 55 gallons for one . for a baby single tailed goldfish the minimum size is 20Gallons for one. But usually 75G tank will be better for the Adult goldfish and 25G extra for another goldfish etc..
So you can't keep the poor baby fish in the bowl :( it's not only cruel but he will not survive long enough. i would suggest you get at least 15-20Gallon tank for him or just take him back where you got him. this 1 gallon tank is way to small for any type of fish
