"Gooey Buns" Recipe
I am looking for a recipe from the 1950s or 60s. They were called "Gooey Buns" and contained cubes of ham, hard boiled eggs, cheese (Velveeta?) and some other ingredients?

Removing Makeup From Face
What do you use to remove makeup from your face? I use Dove bar soap with a face cloth. Lately, I've noticed that Dove is not removing all the makeup after I wash my face.

Walmart Getting Rid Of Crafts Department
Why is Walmart taking away their craft dept? I was saddened to go into the store on Saturday to get some Christmas fabric and wool and to my dismay the fabrics were gone. No buttons, no thread, no patterns, no notions, etc etc. The wool is going soon. The media is telling us to save our money or recycle and then when you want to sew they take it away. It's a shame. If the square foot in the store is not paying out it goes.

My dog was 7 and had never been sick before this.

Making Christmas Presents From Fabric...

Cold Air Coming Out Of Heater Vents

Use Dishwasher Detergent For Baked On Food
I find the best way to remove any baked on or burned residue in pans or casseroles, or burner rings is to sprinkle on some dry dishwasher detergent, cover with hot tap water and allow to sit overnight.

Plum Pancake Topping
I find most syrups too sweet, and since we had a bumper crop of plums this year (my husband is still picking them in the snow!) I invented this recipe. It is a very casual recipe, but it does require boiling water bath if you want to preserve it for later in the year.
