Denture Cleaning Tablets to Keep Bottles CleanSome of my cups and bottles are expensive to just replace but these tend to get cloudy after a time. I have found that denture cleaning tablets keep these clean and cloud free.


two grey tabby cats

Jade and Gus (Tabby)I got them when they were born from their momma Colbie.


finished card

Checkmate Father's Day CardHere is a themed card for a chess-loving father. The focus point of the card is a king chess piece, reminding your father that he is the king of your heart. The card requires a few simple materials, but the end result is very pleasing and should speak right to your father's heart. Checkmate!


Chocolate Cake

Healthier Chocolate CakeThis cake is delicious! I honestly have never made one that I liked better. And yes, this is still dessert, and still sugary... but it is much healthier than your average box cake. Please try this, it's so good!

Wreck-it Ralph and Fix-it Felix (German...They were dropped off at a veterinary office before they were supposed to be separated from their mom. We adopted them when they were in good enough health to come home with us.

Pom with a stick

Winx (Pomeranian )I got her from a breeder when she was 8 weeks old.


microfiber mitt

Morning Dew Car WashLiving in Southern California during the worst drought the U.S. has ever seen is no walk in the park. You have to get creative about how to save water - something I almost never had to worry about growing up in the rain-drenched North East.


Heidi outside

Heidi (Labradoodle)I got Heidi from my sister to have as my service dog.


black Lab wearing a red collar with a white Pom in an Easter basket

Kosar (Labrador Retriever)I got him from a rescue at 7 weeks old. He's a big goofball that trips over his big feet all the time, but that doesn't keep him from running around.


iPhone Kids Mode

iPhone Kids ModeThe iPhone has a secret mode which locks the user into a single application. You can use it whenever you hand your phone to one of your kids to ensure that they stay in the game or video that you are letting them see without allowing them to get into other apps.


House Plants

Watering Plants While on VacationIf you are going on vacation from four to five weeks this is a tried and true way to keep your potted plants, as well as large ferns in hanging baskets watered without depending on someone to tend them in your absence.

Nail Polish Remover for Removing Hair DyeI just did this and it worked perfectly! Use nail polish remover, a brillo pad and makeup remover wipes. After you are done, go over the area with wood floor cleaner to make it shine.



yellow dog

What Breed Is My Dog?Our girl's name is Marley, she's approx 3 1/2. The man who we got her from said she was a Shepherd/Husky mix. I wasn't sure, to me she looks a lot like a Lab. I am just looking to see what others think. She is a beautiful and loving dog. She loves all people and all dogs.

Washer Doesn't Always Drain and Spin?I have a Kenmore front loader washing machine. Sometimes it doesn't drain and spin the water out. If I put it on a different cycle it will work or if I put it on the drain and spin cycle it will work. It doesn't always work if I change cycles. We have checked the drain hose for blockage, it seemed fine.

SSD and Child Support?My daughter's father has never helped me with her since the day she was born. He has begun to receive Social Security disability, but owes no child support. How do I go about getting financial help from him? We have recently become homeless and I lost my job. I am feeling hopeless.

What Breed Is this Puppy?I have seen the photos of this adorable puppy, and I want to know what it's breed is, but I can't find the origin of the photos! If anyone knows, can you please tell me what type of dog this is?

Lawn Mower Will Not Start?I own a Craftsman 1100 riding mower with a 17.5hp Briggs & Straton. It had gas in the oil, stuck needle, and a blown head gasket. I replaced the head gasket and the carburetor, the fuel lines, and the filter. I was able to get the engine to turn over once and it quit.
