Stenciled Garden SignThis is a cute sign to hang in your garden area. I have mine in my garden shed. There are lots of cute things you can stencil on your sign. Here are a few I've heard, thought of myself or seen:

Is Biological Laundry Powder Septic System Safe?Can anyone tell me if I am correct in thinking that you are not supposed to use biological washing powder if you have a septic tank? Does its use upset the system? Many thanks.
Feet Are Itchy from Playing in Grass?My grandson has some type of ground itch on the bottom of his feet from playing outdoors barefoot. Should I take him to the doctor or is there something I can use at home? I have been using vinegar soaks and a salve, but not sure it is going away completely. Any suggestions?
