Tomatoes after being tamed.

Taming TomatoesWhen our tomato plants start growing like crazy, I invented this holder made from a clothes hanger to keep the tomato plants from escaping the garden. Cut the wire into 6" pieces. Using pliers, curve into a U shape and curve both ends. Place U shape around straying tomato vine and attach to tomato cage. Do this to all vines to clean up the garden area.


A loaded baked potato with asparagus

Crockpot Baked PotatoesIn the past, I seldom baked potatoes because it takes so long to bake them in the oven, however, I do love them. Today, I tried baking some in the crockpot and they were scrumptious.


A woman looking at a computer with distress.

Surviving a ScamI just read the article about viruses in your computer. I would like to address it formally. Yes, there are viruses but in the last 10 to 15 years, there are also little green men also known as scammers who troll the internet looking for a victim. I have been receiving what I thought were a lot of calls from unknown callers out of USA, up to 4 per day. I have since found out people are getting more than 10 calls per day from this type of person. This type person is a scammer.


Using a reflective collar to hold keys.

Reflective Collar as Key LanyardHere is a way to have an adjustable and reflective key lanyard for your keys using a small cat/dog collar. I have always used them because I like that it can be adjusted and not just super long like most lanyards. In addition, using a reflective one is great for finding them in the dark and can be used as safety protection for being visible when walking in the dark ! :)



A woman with rose-gold coloring in her blonde hair.

Hairdresser Turned Hair Rose-gold Instead of Blonde?I went in to have my roots touched up blonde. Roots are blonde. Much of the rest of my hair is not! It turned rose-gold. She said it is impossible to remove. I have to wait until it grows out. So she added highlights! I'm very unhappy!


An old wooden chest.

A landscape painting with trees, mountains and deer.

The Art Parrishes 1941 Painting?My daughter found this painting by an apartment dumpster. Is it worth anything?


Two decorative lamps.

Bon Art 1995 Lamps?Bought these two lamps at a garage sale about 20 years ago. Found some on eBay and Poshmark and other sites with same logo selling for up to $250 to over $1000. Any help is appreciated to figure out value. I have shades, but they look like they have been spray painted. Need to get rid of them.

Will Diesel Fumes Evaporate From Wood Furniture?I have three pieces of furniture that were exposed to diesel fumes from a garage, they were exposed for about an hour. I can not smell it now but would like to know if diesel fume exposure dissipates, or if anyone knows if it does before I bring the desk in the house, OR does anyone know if there is a way to actually make sure the fumes have evaporated from the wood?
