Caring for a Duck Egg?Yesterday I found a single duck egg in my neighbor's backyard. He had been doing some yard work and there was no mother in sight. The egg was cold, so I brought the egg inside. I placed it in a small bowl thing with a dry washcloth around it in an old hermit crab cage. I placed the cage in a cupboard with a desk lamp hovering above it in the cupboard.


Identifying a Stuffed Toy - white stuffed bear

Identifying a Stuffed Toy?I used to have this stuffed toy and I've been searching really hard for a replacement. It got lost when we moved. It came as a set of three stuffed animals, a bear (as the pictures show) a dog, and a lion. I really want to find the dog and the bear because I really do love them. They're stuffed with stuffing everywhere except the bottom, which has a sort of bean bag bottom.

Identifying Reddish Brown Bugs in the Bathroom - tiny brown bug

Identifying Reddish Brown Bugs in the Bathroom?I recently started seeing these tiny reddish brown bugs in my bathroom. At first I just saw one or two, but over the last two days they seem to be multiplying. They are mostly on the floor by the molding, but I have found a few by the window in my shower (which I keep open quite a bit ), and in the sink. They can fly I think, but I've mostly seen them crawling.

Value of a Cabbage Patch Doll - red haired doll wearing a green and white gingham dress

Value of a Cabbage Patch Doll?I've had this CPD for a long time now. I just don't have a birth certificate or box for it. But it does have its original clothing. It honestly just popped out of nowhere. It's in pretty good condition and I can clean it if I find somewhere to sell it. I tried Googling information, but I figured this could be more helpful.

Value of Antique Bedroom Furniture - chest of drawers, antique or perhaps vintage

Value of Antique Bedroom Furniture?I recently purchased a bedroom suite at a thrift store for $100. The photo is of the tall dresser.

I'm finding that there is different wood grains that were used.

Removing the Address from Express Scripts Mailer Bags?Prescriptions from Express Scripts come in mailer bags with the address stamped on them. How do I destroy that address information before I throw away the bag? Shredding by machine doesn't work, alcohol and nail polish remover don't either. Melting them on a burner on top of the stove makes a mess (and toxic fumes).

Display on Oster Bread Machine Not Working?My Oster bread machine has been working fine, but now the display does not show. It has power. It beeps, it kneads, and even bakes (per experiment), but I have no idea what cycle it's really on, which makes things a little tricky. Any idea if the display can be reset?
