June 2015 issue; Checklist artilce

under the heading; Hang your flag, you tell readers to 'use a plastic anchor if your house is brick'.
I think it is also important to note; if attempting to secure anything with weight to it on a brick wall, always begin by drilling a hole into the brick NOT into the mortar, as mortar will not support much weight before crumbling.
I was fortunate to stop my ex husband before he attached a roof to a wall putting the weight on mortar, if I hadn't stopped him, we would have had the roof over our mudroom come down with the first snow.
