Does anyone out there know how to stop a crack in the dashboard of a car? We're a little tight on money right now and can't afford to have it professionally done. We aren't looking to repair it right now, only to stop it before it gets worse! thanks! Alica from Missouri

Hanging a Picture
Having trouble hanging pictures when you have the hooks on the back? Here is a solution, take a piece of tape (masking or scotch tape) and stick it to the pack of the picture. Now put a pencil mark on the tape where you need to put your nail or screw. Now take the tape off of the back of the picture, and put your tape on the wall and you have your marks, put nail or screws in and your ready to hang your picture remove your tape. You can put a level on top of tape to make sure it is level or you can just eye ball it. By Sassy
