Quick Answers to Questions from Google Search 3

G Site Kit has a section where it recommends blog posts to answer real Google searches. Here are some questions and some answers. The answers should be taken as my opinion rather than as anything reliable.

Question 1:

Can you leave furniture at curb on trash day for pick up can anyone pick up furniture if left at curb on trash day?

I know you’re muttering to yourself, “Objection–compound question.” But I’m not an attorney, so ūü§∑‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹ.

In Los Angeles, you can leave furniture out on trash day for the city to pick up, but you have to call the city in advance to let them know that you will be doing so, or they will not pick up the bulky items. They will not pick up construction debris.

And as far as picking up abandoned furniture goes, I don’t know how to answer this because if I say that you can do it in Los Angeles and you do it in Los Angeles, there’s less for me to grab, and I like my woodworking projects to be as free as possible.

Question 2:

I have a ton of Wall Street Journal dating back to the early 1970s to 1989 are they worth anything

Throw those away! There are few reasons to retain old newspapers. One of them is if you’re quoted in them. Another is if your restaurant is reviewed in a favorable way so you can hang it up and show everyone.

Hoarding is not OK.

That all said, if you can figure out a way to turn them into chairs or other furniture by encasing them in epoxy, that might be interesting for a coffee shop. Turn the stacks of trash into stacks of cash!

Question 3:

We own a 12 room inn can we put out the outdoor furniture cushions for our guests will they need to be cleaned

If you have ask, you gotta clean it. It’s like when I ask Calah if I need to shower after spending a long time sanding. Of course I need to shower.

But this is something from an inn. As innkeepers, you have to clean things even if you could get away without cleaning them at home. People stay in your place and expect things to be clean when they arrive. That’s one of the things they pay for. Yikes!

Keep the quetions coming!

Quick Answers to Questions from Google Search 2

G Site Kit has a section where it recommends blog posts to answer real Google searches. Here are some questions and some answers. The answers should be taken as my opinion rather than as anything reliable.

Question 1:

What is cost of staining wood furniture?

The cost is revealing the beauty of the wood itself.

Many of my woodworking blog posts are about refinishing furniture I got on craigslist or, in rare cases, purchased. I took off the stain to show what was underneath and work with that.

This pair of tables shows natural finish compared to the old stained finish. You can read all about these two in my woodworking blog.

Question 2:

Why does NYT daily online puzzle expire so early?

I live out in California, so I don’t have this issue. The New York Times Crossword Puzzle expires at midnight Pacific, and the new Spelling Bee appears at midnight Pacific. I imagine you live somewhere like Hawaii, and if you do, these things might end earlier. If you live in like Japan, it’s going to be way earlier. The only advice I have for you is to wake up early to shift your day to be in coordination with the time zone that Los Angeles is in.

Question 3:

Why has my crosswordnexus clue solver be taken off my app s and will not let me re install?

I am unfamiliar with this app, but there are few things I can think of as to why this happened.

First option: The app changed from the crosswordnexus clue solver to the crosswordpixel clue solver. I had a Google Nexus phone, and now I have a Google Pixel phone. Even Rob Zombie changed the lyrics in More Human than Human from I am the Nexus One to I am the Pixel 5. I understand that from the problems with the Pixel 6, Rob Zombie is holding off on a new version.

Second option: This is a puzzle by itself. Maybe they want you to demonstrate that you can solve puzzles in order to get more help. Sure, they run the risk of you realizing that you can solve them on your own and therefore not need the app, but maybe it’s worth learning to code? Maybe make your own? Sell it? Make a million bucks?

Third option: There never was such an app. It was all a dream.

Quick Answers to Questions from Google Search

G Site Kit has a section where it recommends blog posts to answer real Google searches. Here are some questions and some answers. The answers should be taken as my opinion rather than as anything reliable.

Question 1:

Is the word recesstution a correct spelling?

Well, it’s a nonstandard spelling. Is any spelling really more correct than any other spelling? Yes. I believe so, anyway. But to address this word. What is it? It could be one of many things. It could be all of many things. It could be somewhere in between those two extremes.

It’s possible that what was desired was resuscitation (bringing people back from the dead).

Here’s the etymology to make it easier to remember the spelling:

resuscitate (v.)

1530s, “revive, restore, revivify (a thing), restore (a person) to life,” from Latin¬†resuscitatus, past participle of¬†resuscitare¬†“rouse again, revive,” from¬†re-¬†“again” (see¬†re-) +¬†suscitare¬†“to raise, revive,” from¬†sub¬†“(up from) under” (see¬†sub-) +¬†citare¬†“to summon” (see¬†cite). The intransitive sense of “recover from apparent death” is recorded from 1650s. Related:¬†Resuscitated;¬†resuscitating. Earlier were¬†resuscen¬†“restore (someone) to life, resurrect” (c. 1400);¬†resusciten¬†(mid-15c.), from Old French¬†resusciter, Latin¬†resuscitare.

It’s possible that what was desired was restitution (making up for a loss), as is often the case.

restitution (n.)

early 14c.,¬†restitucioun, “a making good or giving equivalent for crime, debt, injury, etc.;” late 14c., “restoration of goods, land, etc. to a former owner, repayment of money;” from Old French¬†restitucion¬†or directly from Latin¬†restitutionem¬†(nominative¬†restitutio) “a restoring,” noun of action from past-participle stem of¬†restituere¬†“set up again, restore, rebuild, replace, revive, reinstate, re-establish,” from¬†re-¬†“again, to a former state” (see¬†re-) +¬†statuere¬†“to set up” (from PIE root¬†*sta-¬†“to stand, make or be firm”).

Of course, it could be spelled correctly if recesstution means what’s needed after being kept in class well into the break.

Question 2:

Do bang good woodworking tools come in inches as well as millimeters?

Answer: Sure! Anything that’s good in metric is probably better in normal units. And if you can’t find it, just convert metric to normal. An inch is 2.54cm.

Question 3:

I don’t get vowels in spelling

It’s not really a question, but I understand the sentiment. And the gripe. No one just gets vowels. You have to buy them.

Keep asking questions!
