Turmeric With Scrambled EggsFor a change, try adding turmeric to scrambled eggs. I never buy my spices or herbs from the supermarket as the price you pay goes mainly to the packing. Try to find a nature store that you can buy as little or as much as you like. The product will be fresher and also very inexpensive compared to the supermarket price. By joesgirl

Panty Liner for Removing Nail PolishWhen I remove red nail polish using a cotton ball, my hands become covered with the red polish I am removing.

Making Keepsakes for Bridesmaids?I have two slightly-stained white-satin wedding dresses that I purchased at yard sales. Both dresses are full-skirted and have attached net slips and train. I also have the veil for one dress. My daughter is getting married in June and I would like to make keepsakes for her bridesmaids from some of this material, perhaps incorporating some of the beading, pearls, and lace trim. I need ideas and patterns. Thank you. - Belinda

Sweet Potato Vines In A Mason Jar?I remember my mom growing sweet potato vines (as house plants) in a mason jar. How do you do it? I'd love to know. Can they remain in the water with some marbles in the bottom, or do they need to be planted? What type of light do they need? If I need to plant them, what do I keep the moisture level at for the soil? I can't remember which end of the sweet potatoe to place in water to root it? Thanks, jenny from KY

Home Remedy For Contact Dermatitis?I don't even know if I spelled it right but I have had "contact dermatitious" for over 2 years from wearing wrist braces. I no longer wear them but when I get stressed or am working too hard my hands become very itchy and painful to the point of open sores. The Dr.s have prescribed ointments that never seem to work. Any home remedy suggestions would be appreciated? Karaof4 from Minnesota
