A chestnut-sided warbler in a bush.

Chestnut-sided WarblerI captured this picture in September while I was birding at a local pond. This little bird was elusive, hopping from branch to branch, keeping an eye on me at all times. His beautiful green plumage confused as to what species he was but I soon discovered it was a juvenile Chestnut-sided warbler!


A cutting of coleus in a small recycled jar.

Small Bottles for Plant CuttingsI save all sorts of small glass, and plastic, bottles, fill them with water and use them for rooting cuttings. It is a very productive and interesting pastime, looking to see how the roots develop over time. You can then pot up your plants when the cuttings are well rooted.


A large toad in his tank.

Big Boy (Toad)I rescued Big Boy three years ago from a sandbar on the Missouri River. He was a newly metamorphosed toadlet on an extremely overcrowded sandbar. There was at least a thousand other baby toads there and he would likely not have made it to adulthood.


The finished loaf of sliced cheesy garlic bread.

Cheesy Garlic BreadJust a good way to dress up some French bread instead of the same old same old garlic bread!

Fixing Grout?I need your help! My brother offered to regrout my shower and I gave him the silicone that I had on hand (I use it for crafting) which turned out to be clear. I mistakenly relied on his "professionalism" to do the job right. He grouted over existing grout and now it has mold embedded and that's all I see. It takes me several hours to clean and I can't get the mold to disappear. What should I do?


A mirror on a antique vanity.

Identifying Antique Vanity?Hello. I am looking to identify a possible antique vanity. It has what looks like hand tooled dovetails. It needs work as the drawers are banged up but it is still quite pretty.
