Bobbie (Golden Retriever)
Bobbie is an 8 year old Golden Retriever. One day we were just walking through the on post vet clinic where the strays are kept and as soon as we saw her we knew she was for us. So we adopted her in May 2002.
Ideas For Reusing Large Coffee Creamer Canisters
I have many of the big plastic canisters that powdered coffee creamer comes in. We drink A LOT of coffee around here! I'm reusing one to store sugar in. It's great because it has the spout on it for pouring. Other than that, what else could I use these containers for?
Help with Print Shop 20 Crashing
I am using a Print Shop 20 software program that keeps crashing my computer. I have deleted and re-installed it it several times. I recovered my computer several weeks back, but it keeps opening in the last document I was working on and freezes up.

Making a cake in one pan turns into a very moist cake.
Maple Seedling: So, This is How They Grow
I pulled this maple tree seedling from one of my outdoor potted plants this morning and thought it might be of interest to those who might want to share it with their children, as it illustrates perfectly how seeds become plants.
Easy and Satisfying Sausage and Pirogies
Place sausage in a crockpot. Mix sauce and spices and pour over all. Cook all day on low or about 3-4 hours on high. (It will be so moist!). When ready to eat, cook pirogies and drain. Serve sausage and sauce over pirogies. Sprinkle with Parmesan if desired. Just add a veggie or salad and voila!
Leftover Chicken Noodle Casserole
I like to buy fried chicken from the deli at the grocery store, but I usually have a lot left over after dinner. So I cut the cold fried chicken off the bones while I'm cooking 1 1/4 cups of elbow macaroni until tender.
Set Plants Together Before You Buy
The key to putting plants together is to go to a large greenhouse and look at all of the plants. Then find ones you like and put them in the "circle" you are going to plant them in. This will allow you to see if something is too dark, or not the right color to be in the clump of new flowers.

Cooking Roast on the Grill
When it is extremely hot, I cook a pork or beef roast on my charcoal grill. You do this by using some heavy duty foil. Sprinkle meat tenderizer (inexpensive is best!) on the meat and wrap in foil making a packet.
Making Bath Bombs at Home
Bath bombs can be tricky little things to make, or more particularly, to get right! Here are a few common problems, issues, and tips if you're having problems attempting these creations.
Use PVC Caps To Cover Toilet Bolts
I had to replace my bathroom commode. Due to floor conditions from prior use, the installer used copper or brass bolts to install the commode. These were taller/longer than the ones that came with new commode. Covers for bolts could not be covered with original covers that came in the box with new commode.
Rice With Chiles
Mix rice with salt and pepper. Layer rice, chilies, sour cream and Monterey Jack cheese in greased casserole until all ingredients are used, beginning and ending with rice. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
Kids' Santa Ornament
You will need red or green puff paper (I get it at the dollar store), cotton balls, glue, a small pic of the kid that is doing the ornament, black gel pen, silver gel pen, and scissors.
Marinated Chuck Steak
Trim chuck steak. Sprinkle steak with meat tenderizer. Add to marinade, turning to coat. Add to marinade, turning to coat. Let stand for 20 minutes, turning once. Broil steak to desired degree of doneness, brushing with marinade.
Meat Tenderizer For Bug Bites And Stings
I had a nasty bug sting yesterday. The only remedy I could recall was to make a paste of meat tenderizer and water to cover the bite. Well, it actually worked. I'll be darned. The tenderizer was so old that I can't recall when I bought it. Just a note: this was a pain stopper - not a swelling reducer.
