DULUTH – It was a busy Saturday for Mike and Chelsea Brandon, who had driven up from Eagan to find their next home.
After a blitz of seven viewings, the couple put in an offer on a charmer that checked all their boxes: two-car garage, a deck, and room for their two-year-old, Lochlann, to play.
“We just live outside, and that’s how we want to raise our son,” Chelsea said.
“We like camping, the outdoors, the geography of

It’s a home makeover but 200 miles above Earth: The next resupply delivery mission to the International Space Station will include a new re-designed commode for the astronauts.
A cargo re-supply launch is scheduled to liftoff on a Northrop Grumman Antares rocket Sept. 29 from NASA’s Wallops Island Flight Facility carrying supplies for the astronauts, research, hardware and a marketing experiment for the makeup company Estee Lauder.

Loaded up among nearly 8,000 pounds of supplies, the Northrop Grumman’s Cygnus cargo spacecraft will also deliver a new “Universal Waste Management System,” also known as a space toilet, to the floating laboratory in space and home to astronauts 365 days a year.

The as yet unnamed national organisation is set to be established as part of a far-reaching overhaul of England’s planning system. The body will be responsible for helping local authorities to create design codes which will be embedded into local plans.
Boys Smith has been named as the head of a steering group which will advise the government on what the new design body should look like, and will later become chair of the body which, the AJ understands, is likely to be created in the first half of 2021.
Announcing the appointment, housing secretary Robert Jenrick said there would be a ‘very, very strong’ emphasis on design – and the roles of design guide and codes – in the new English planning system.

The most frequent phone call I receive out of the phone book usually goes something like this, “Hi, I have a back patio that I wanted to stain and I went up to __________(fill in the blank with one of your local chain home improvement stores) to pick up some “concrete stain” and now it’s flaking off. Is there something I can do to stop the flaking?”
Some customers have even gone to the extent of contacting the company to complain about the product and most of the companies will send a “stripper” and more product to re apply. I am not here to trash those companies, but to explain the very important difference between an ACID stain and a concrete stain. An acid Stain is a chemical reaction.
