Hey Paul,

I'll give you the rundown. First, for a driveway, I'd have to advise using a pretty thick slab of concrete beneath the brick. The concrete part of it should be done professionally. But I live in an area with lots of rain (hence, Mud), might not be a problem where you are. Anyway, here you go:

  1. Clear the area so its smooth. Grade it if necessary.
  2. After clearing the area, set the perimeters with string or with 1x4 boards. This keeps you from going wide as you lay the bricks
  3. Get a load of sand and spread it evenly over the area. This can be done easier with two people and a long 2x4. The depth should be at least an inch. This makes leveling the bricks MUCH easier. Keep some aside for filling in the spaces between the bricks. Keep it dry too.
  4. Start at one end and start placing the bricks. As you advance, you'll be on the bricks, not the sand.
  5. Have a straight edged board handy to level them. Use a rubber mallet to tap them down. Consider the spacing between them. Use a scrap of 3/8 wood or something like that to keep the spacing consistent.
  6. As you place more bricks, get up occasionally and eyeball your work.
  7. After they are laid, you'll need to hit a home improvement place. You are looking for a glue (powdered) that is mixed with your left over sand to set the bricks. Ask someone there, they will know.
  8. You mix it in with the sand and dump it in the middle of the bricks. Then just sweep it over the entire area until the spaces are filled. Then sweep off the excess.
  9. Once filled, lightly spray water over the whole drive. This activates the compound. Once dry, you have a driveway.
If you do concrete it first, you'll only need enough sand for the space fill.

Hope it turns out great. I love brick drives.

Mike

    Hey there Paul,

    Did you know I'm a volunteer here. The only compensation I get are ratings and the satisfaction of helping people that need it.

    You may not understand the rating system, but I've got to ask, Why only a helpful rating and not a FixYa? Short of laying the bricks myself, what more could you want?

    You've been posted for a month without a nibble, mainly since you chose to categorize your masonry problem as 20" RCA television. You type two sentences to describe what you want. Two minutes max investment.

    Then I stumble across it and feel sorry no one picked it up even if you did miscategorize.

    In response, I give you a full page of well thought out professional step by step details as well as time and money saving advice, not to mention the 45 minutes of my life it took to put it down, all of which cost you and made me nothing.

    To show your gratitude, without any comment as to why, without a syllable of interaction, you take the time to give me a rating which lowered my overall rating by a full point. I can't thank you enough.

    I'll be thinking of you while earning my next five FixYa ratings trying to get my score back up to the break-even point it was at before I ignored my better judgement and responded to your lost post.

    It would have been better if you didn't rate at all, at least then you wouldn't have done any damage. I guess no good deed goes unpunished.

    I'm usually more diplomatic than this, you probably meant no harm. But that doesn't make it right. At least I'll get the Positive Karma points for my part.

    Sorry your Karma is counterbalancing on the negative side of the scale, especially with today's date falling on a Friday. Bad timing. You're the only one that can undo it.

Says weak signal


Presuming you are already connected to a DTV box, welcome to the new improved TV service. I get it a lot due to atmospheric conditions ( rain, wind, etc ). Trees filter out your TV signals as well. Options : save the trees.. or relocate your antenna to get a clearer path.. or go to antenna tv.org & put in your street address, more reliable than a zipcode. Then, either with an old fashion compass or the "Smart Compass" app off of Google Play, realign your antenna to point towards the most stations you can. Mine just happens to be 204?.. or have a service company install an antenna rotor if you live in an area where the wind would blow it out of alignment frequently. Good luck. -DellTech1

Pink and jumpy


The reason the picture is pink is most likely the picture tube, and that's what weighs so freaking much,is going out on this set. The specs on the tube have changed, but all may not be lost. The set maybe able to be adjusted, but this is a thing that only a trained service tech should attempt. This will involve going into the service menu and realigning the RGB drives and RGB cutoffs for the tube. If the tube is really bad, the alignment will not work. If you wanted to attempt this alignment yourself, make sure you have the service manual and understand the full procedure before you start, as once you start your be committed to the alignment. This set is worth at least a service call as if the tech can adjust the set, you should get some extras time out of it. Good Luck

Hi there, my new 60" LG plasma switches randomly off ... what can the cause be for that ? i checked everything ... the trouble shooting guide ... everything ... it does it randomly ! :(


try relocating it to a different power source. like a different room. problem could be small drop in 110 voltage. like when your refrigerator comes on or your air conditioner comes on. they could be on the same 110 line. there is a circuit that senses incoming voltage. if voltage drops too much too quick, the protection circuit shuts tv off. to protect. could be down the street from you. your set is fine

Why does my tv turns on and off by itself?


Sometimes if the batteries are low in the remote this can happen. I've seen it happen because of old garage door openers as well. There could also be a problem with your electrical wiring...whether it's in your tv or in the house wires...
Try the batteries first though.

Won't keep digital signal


If you're connected to a digital cable box, I would try using the external component connections and bypass the TV's tuner. If all you have is straight cable coming into the house, it could be the cable signal itself or a defective tuner in the TV assuming all the menu settings are correct in the TV.
