coffee cubes in ice tray

Homemade Iced Coffee CubesI refuse to pay for ice coffees that are filled with ice and you are only getting 1/4 of coffee in your cup. Call me "frugal". Yes, I am frugal! :)

Thrifty and Quick RibsMy family loves ribs, either slabs or "country style". I purchased several packages of these a few months ago when they went on sale for $1.59 a pound and wrapped them tightly for the freezer. I got these out yesterday so we could have ribs on a rainy night without heating the kitchen up too badly with the oven.



breaker cabinet

Replacing a 200 Amp Breaker Box?I have a double wide that was broken into and they stole my 200 amp breaker box by cutting wires at the ceiling. The wires are now too short; they barely come out of the ceiling. Do I have to run all new wire for the home or is there some way around this?

Clutch Knob on Sewing Machine Won't Tighten?After winding my bobbin, I shifted the bobbin winder shaft back to the left, in original position, and took off the bobbin full of thread. Then, I tightened the clutch knob, or at least I thought I did. Now, only the hand wheel turns when I press the foot control.

Male Neutered Cat Is Spraying?I have 4 cats. In the last 3 weeks my 18 month old cat has started spraying in seemingly random places all over the house, and it is becoming more regular. I have looked at the reasons and how to cure it, but we have not been away for any long times, nor have there been any major changes around the house.

Masquerade Themed Sweet Sixteen?I'm hoping to have a masquerade themed sweet sixteen, but the only problem I see with it is I have no idea what to do to keep my guests entertained. There will be dancing and a photo booth, but as far as anything else to have I can't think of anything that would tie into the masquerade theme.

Kenmore 385 Only Stitching Backwards?My Kenmore 385 100 stitch will only stitch backwards, and makes teeny tiny little stitches. It has been "squealing" for a while, but only sometimes and it went to this backwards-only stitch when I tried to sew some words with it, fancy stitches.

Pricing for a Move In Cleaning?The house is 1250 square feet and there is no furniture or stuff in house. I live 45 minutes from the place, so that's 1 and a half hours round trip! They want light switches and everything sanitized and cleaned. I will supply all cleaning stuff, but I don't know what to charge? We live in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Repotting a Pear Tree?Is it possible for me to re-pot my container pear tree now? It is 2 years old and fruits are just starting to form, small buds. Will it harm the plant if I re-pot it now or when is it the best time?

Cleaning a Bathtub Ring?I always have consoled myself that the ring was not from me, but from the soaking of basket weave reeds in the tub. Whether that is true or not I have no idea. Is that a possibility? I would not mind getting rid of it if anyone has a suggestion. It has been there for years and I have scrubbed it as though it were a regular ring, but to no avail.
