Keep Guacamole from Turning BrownAir is what turns guacamole and fresh avocados brown. After you open a package of guacamole or cut an avocado open, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap.

Pay Attention to Appliances While You are Using ThemMany people like to operate their washers, driers, and dishwashers right before they go to bed, to take advantage of cheaper electrical rates.

aper towel in bag of salad

Keep Bagged Salad Fresh LongerBagged salads are a real convenience, but are expensive and spoil easily. When they go on sale, I will buy one or two bags at most. I then put a paper towel in the bag. It absorbs excess moisture. I change the towel when it is damp. This keeps the salad fresh an extra day or two.

Red Bump Over Dog's Eye?DeOhGee, started getting black heads last month, something the vet said isn't uncommon for dogs. Today, I discovered this red mark over his eye. It wasn't there earlier. There is no dirt, blood, or discharge of any kind. There is not one hair where it forms a perfect little circle. It doesn't seem to bother him.
