Protecting Plants from StormsI tried using strips from those overabundant plastic grocery bags, and found they work just fine for tying up plants. When a storm is approaching, I go out to my garden and make sure that I've secured as many as possible of the long flexible stems.

How Can I Confirm Electrical Problems?I have many outlets but only one outlet is out. I thought I would just replace the one so I got a free estimate and they want over 4 grand saying the whole house needed to be rewired. It's scary because I don't want a fire. How does one know if this is true, are there other signs to look for so I can make sure that this really needs to be done before I spend 4 grand?
3 Cats that Don't Get Along?I have three cats. The first being the biggest and the third still a kitten. The kitten is not the problem here, he gets along with everyone. The oldest cat lives in EXTREME fear of the middle cat, and pees everywhere because of it and cries all the time. The middle cat is aggressive with him and always looking to attack him when possible. I'm not sure what to do about this. My oldest cat barely comes out of the closet because he feel safe in there. How do I get the middle cat to stop attacking? How can I train him that it is wrong?
Any suggestions would help.

Need Easy Punch Recipes for An Eagle Scout Reception August 14th!Hi there! My son just got his Eagle Award in Boy Scouts, and I am planning a large ceremony and reception for him, to be held Sat., August 14th, only a bit over 2 weeks away!

Starting a Family Reunion Tradition?I want to start a family reunion tradition. We don't have one now but our family is getting pretty large with brothers and sisters moving away with kids, often to different states. My sister and I have decided to start to plan a family reunion and we hope to have it be a yearly event. What I am wondering is if anyone out there does this and if they have any advice? What works for you? Any tips or advice would be appreciated.
