MTD Mower Keeps Draining Battery
I have a 16.5hp MTD riding mower and the battery keeps being drained. We purchased a new battery. As soon as we put it in we had to jump it off. Now it won't even jump off. This is only the second time we have tried to use it since the new battery was installed.
Clean Mini-Blinds Outdoors
I put my mini-blinds on the outdoor table and hose and wash with the car wash brush, then flip and do the other side. I hang them on the clothes line to dry. Kids can do this chore.
Rotten Meat Odor in Freezer
Our freezer died while we were on our 14 day vacation. All the meat rotted and melted water as well as blood is everywhere. How would we know if the blood got into the insulation of the freezer? How do we get the horrible smell out of the house? Please help ASAP.

Black Bean Quinoa Salad
I threw this together for a quick summer salad this week. My husband loved it so much that he said he would eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Quinoa is so versatile and a great substitute for pasta or rice.
Customize Your Own Diet
The only sure way to lose weight is counting calories; it's all about calories in vs. calories out. First, come up with your goal weight. Goal weight x 10 = amount of calories daily you should consume.
Keeping Toothbrushes Clean
To keep toothbrushes clean and deodorized, fill a class with one part hydrogen peroxide and one part water (1/2 and 1/2). Make sure there is enough to cover all the bristles, and leave in there when not using.
Mustard is 3 years old. I got him as a tiny kitten three years ago. He likes chasing flying insects around the garden. He tries to catch them but rarely succeeds. He is a big softy and likes nothing better to curl up with his mum!
Paying Bills On Time Without Auto-Pay
Organizing the household bills and making sure they get paid on time shouldn't be a problem. I open all mail immediately upon bringing it into the house. If I cannot do that, at least the bills are pulled out and placed in my bill-paying spot on my desk.
Store Nuts in the Freezer
Nuts, both shelled and un-shelled should be kept in the freezer. They last longer and crack easier. Nuts and seeds of all sorts can be served directly from the freezer.
