At the risk of quickly falling to the bottom of the heap of disregarded new posts I give you the following food for thought:

As I was offering advice in another thread, albeit unsolicited, I realized that everyone here has an enormous amount of knowledge and must be at the Ďexpertí level in at least one area. Iíd like to know what you what you are an authority on and if you are willing to share your knowledge, knowing the folks, here Iíll bet you are.

When ever Iíve requested advice here on something, no matter how arcane, someone has always come to my rescue. Iíd love to have a thread that could be referred back to. Come on, nothing is too insignificant.

Iíll bet there are folks out that are knowledgeable on car and motorcycle repair and maintenance, financial planning, elder care, German coo-coo clocks, cooking, carpentry and home repair, knitting, electronics, etc., etc., etc. And lord knows Iím always in need of advice, Iíd love to get here from people I trust.

So Iíll start. Iím an accomplished runner and running coach and have a lot of knowledge on general fitness and nutrition. In other areas of my life Iíd be considered the music expert Ė here Iíd be blown out of the water for sure!

By the way, Iím looking for help taking down and putting up wallpaper.

People often come to me for party planning questions, ideas and advice...I've helped organize everything from simple birthday parties, to crazy jello shot parties, helped plan weddings, I even booked a band for awhile, etc.

I once had a Birthday Tea for my daughter Alexis when she turned 7. I had 32 little girls set up at 8 lace covered tables with 3 tier servers and fine china demi tasse cups and saucers (which they got to keep). I spent months collecting fancy wide brimmed hats with netting at yards sales and antique stores so each girl could wear a fancy hat to tea. We had fruit kabobs, 5 layer tea sandwiches made out of pink and yellow party bread (ok, no cracks! i did not order "green" bread...), pink lemonade and petit fours...each girl wore her favorite outfit and we had a fashion show. Pictures were taken of each girl, and while they made picture frames I had a friend run to the 1 hour photo so that they could put their photo in the frame before the party was over to take home. It was a huge success and one of the best parties I ever threw.

Terri B's 50th was also a great time. I had lots of help with that from JodyGirl, Barry, Helen, Nancy, Janet, Stacy and Sari.. it was lots of fun. To this day I am still amazed that I actually had a live band in my family room and people were dancing like crazy in my kitchen and foyer! It was a blast!

So that's what I enjoy doing. I'm certainly not an expert, but I think I have a lot of good party ideas and they usually go pretty well....

btw - I'm a paralegal by day and a mother of four. However, I don't consider myself an expert in either of those areas...

There's some good answers here. Ok. I'll be serious now. Big shock, huh? But only for a moment. Really, I don't know that I'm an expert in any one thing. I've dabbled in music history, instrument repair and sales, being a musician (sorta), singing, sound and lighting, studio recording, healthcare, care for the elderly, mental health (Watch it with the comments. LOL ), and accounting. And, yeah, there's this one blonde guy.....

1972-2005 Jeeps, specifically CJs and Wranglers. Fixing, upgrading and part interchangability - any and all areas except carburetors (who needs a carb these days anyway). I'm ASE certified mechanic in several fields, but most of my experience is with Jeeps.

I could probably tell you anything you would ever need, or want, to know about the Business of minor league baseball....Now, those were the days!!...

But, that's about all I could really think of. Aside from that, I'm a chronic dabbler.

I can help you with the wallpaper. I think I've remodeled every room in the house at least twice plus a few in other people's houses too. To take it off get a spray bottle, put a couple capfuls of fabric softener in it then fill it up with the absolute hottest water you can find that won't melt the bottle. Drench an area that you can reach comfortably at least as wide as a stip of the paper you're removing and from floor to ceiling if you can. As the paper soaks up the water you may have to keep spraying it to keep it wet. Use a narrow putty knife to get a place started, usually at the bottom. Be careful not to gouge the wall. Depending on how old the paper is, you could get lucky and grab the paper at the bottom and pull it up and the whole strip could come off at once. Or if it's an older home it might come off in itty bitty pieces. I've done it both ways and everything in between. It depends on how it was hung. I've seen it put on drywall with nothing in between and it ends up pulling the paper right off the drywall. Then you've got a mess.

Whatever you do, don't get one of the little pizza wheel cutter thingys to score the paper. That just tears up the wall bigtime and then you've got no chance of pulling off big pieces.

They also sell pretty afordable steamers these days at Lowes' and such that also work pretty darn good removing wallpaper.

Putting it back up...well....get it off first. Then PM me.

My day job is a plant engineer. If I can't fix it, I know PEOPLE who can.
