3D Kirigami Paper StarsThis is a simple way to make 3D stars from paper with a technique called kirigami. Kirigami is similar to origami except it uses some cutting with scissors, whereas origami is just folding. These stars make fantastic decorations on their own, or hanging from string.

Prognosis for a Puppy with ParvoMy pup's only 45 days old. He's been diagnosed with parvo. 2 days later the vet immediately started the treatment. On the second day the vet was not able to find the veins as it was very difficult, so they have given it through the skin. I just want to know whether it is useful and effective to be giving the fluids through sub skin layer. He had bloody diarrhea and vomiting.

Simplicity Lawn Tractor Keeps StallingI have a Simplicity lawn tractor from about 2010 with a 24 hp B&S engine. It ran for awhile and quit. I have always used airplane gas, no ethanol. Last time my son put in regular gas and now it won't run right. I think it is a safety switch. Is there a way to get rid of all the safety switches?

Foot Pedal Not Working on Sewing MachineThe foot pedal worked for like 5 seconds then stopped working, but the machine light still works. I took the pedal apart and didn't find any problem with it. I replaced just the foot pedal with the same wire and it is giving me the same problem. It worked once or twice for like 3 seconds then stopped working. Could the problem be with the cord that sends the power to the foot pedal?

Foot Controller Not Working on New Home Sewing Machine - sewing machine

Foot Controller Not Working on New Home Sewing MachineI have a problem with a My Style Computer 826 New Home sewing machine by Janome. When plugged in it powers up and I get the usual welcome 'beep', display lights up and stitch 10 is indicated. However, when I use the foot controller, nothing happens at all. I checked the controller on another machine and it works fine. I suspected the motor initially, but I'm not so sure now.

 

Identifying Tiny Black Bugs - very small bugs

Identifying Tiny Black BugsWhat are these? They are almost microscopic and are everywhere. There are a lot of them all over my apartment. They don't fly or jump. They just run around all surfaces. My fiancé and I can feel them all over our bodies, but we haven't found any bites. The itching is just from them running on us.

Older Dog Peed Inside and Threw UpMy dog was laying down inside. Mind you it's pretty warm today 80/90 inside. She has been licking herself clean and I noticed it seemed like she peed inside. She is an 11 year old Pitty so I assumed incontinence. I sent her out to go potty and she came back in and laid back down. It seemed she left another wet spot so I went to have her go back outside and she threw up.

Cat Keeps Scratching Scab Outside of EarI have a 4 year old cat. He doesn't go outside except once in a while to say hi to me while I'm sitting outside. He has had a scratch right outside of his ear for awhile now and constantly scratches it. He will dig in his ear and when he shakes his head, clear liquid comes out. His ear looks pretty clean, barely any black or dirt. The scratching has made his skin raw and bleeding.
