    What was the last thing that you replaced in your home? How old was it and how much did the new one cost?

    I replace a lamp shade.  A neighbor had thrown away a silver floor.  I got it, and replaced the shade with a new shade from ROSS.

    We have a spanking brand new refrigerator. 


     We do not know how old the refrigerator was that we had before because it was purchased used.


    The new fridge price was approx 350 pounds/almost 500 dollars.

    ........and of course, it had to be red to match the toaster and the microwave and most of our dishes. LOL


    Next on the agenda is a red stove. :))

    Thanks, Tabber. We certainly are enjoying it.

    Nothing in my place needs to be replaced due to its age except me! I'd like to have the 35 year old version of myself returned....please!

    It'll COST you! Probably more than the 35 year old version. The price has appreciated with age. You are now more worldly, and impart your intelligence here.

    Uh huh....like fine wine.

    I replaced a $200 computer chair with a leather computer swivel chair 10 years old in perfect condition it was worth $500 10 years ago,and it was a give away on Gumtree..i have never had such a great deal..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    I replaced our old Directv dish with a Roku streaming devise and an outside antenna for all our tv needs. Former cost was $99 per month, now $35 per month and we have much more content.

    ....heat/ac system for one side of the house (22 years) $6500


    ....the other side seems to be in good shape; it is not used as much

    Last October, i got a rectangular table and 4 chairs for $50, at a yard sale. It is more functional than the round table that was in my kitchen. The round table and its chairs are in the "overflow" room. 

    A wheel chair. With brakes. The old one had lost the left handle and the chair would roll in circles. Found a place, Wheel Chairs R Us or something like that, on line and bought a new one for $100......

    New oriental rugs for the living room, den, and dinning room. Lighter and brighter colours that go along with the newly painted trim. Rugs were fairly cheap from Ocean State Job Lot. Gave the old ones to a friend who needed rugs for her home.

    I see you have answered five questions so I deleted your question since the site seems to be working for you now.

    It's possible that you were not logged into akaQA when you first tried to answer questions. You also may have stumbled across a couple of questions that have locked so, therefore, can not receive any further answers or comments.

    If you are still having issues with not being able to answer questions on akaQA please let me know and I will inform the technician team. If the problem is stemming from this end they should be able to fix it.

    Speaking of issues, i almost didn’t get in because the something or other in akaqa has expired and the conversations are no longer private. Wouldn’t let me through until i fiddled with it some... I’ll Skype you when it happens again....

    A couple hours after posting my comment to Witchway yesterday, I was unable to access akaQA and neither could Moderator Ducky.
    I emailed my 'go-to guy" at administration and later I received word that the message was forwarded to the tech team.
    Everything seems to be up and running today-we are back to normal.
