    I ordered some Princess Diana dolls this past week. I received the Prince Andrew, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Prince William set yesterday. They are the set of Prince Andrew's and Sarah's wedding. :) I need to get a stand for Prince Andrew then I plan to set them out for display.

    Tried Marco's Pizza tonight. The delivery was about 45 minutes later than they said it would be and it was stone cold. It tasted OK but it wasn't great. Don't think I'll order from there again.

    A $15 itunes card. Got 20 songs with it (this includes the rest of a Guns N' Roses album... so the album only cost around $4).

    Behr is your friend. If your garage floor is bare (uncoated) now, Behr concrete and masonary degreaser and cleaner is the way to start.

    If it is already painted or coated with sealer, you'll need this instead:

    After the floor is ready, Behr concrete paint with epoxy is a great coating:

    I did the basic wash and two coats of paint and it took three days total. One day to wash and let dry well, and a day each for each coat. I probably could have done the two coats back to back on the same day but chose to wait and do a coat each morning. Turned out great. I'll leave the floor empty for a couple of days before putting anything back on it. I'll be careful for a week or so to let the paint fully cure.

    No vehicle will be back in the garage now until winter rolls around again. In the summer the garage is used as a storage space. I will likely clean it again in the fall and put another coat on it before the snow flies and the snow crews start dropping salt all over the roads. I am just down the road from you - our weather conditions are similar. Good luck.
