Removing Rusted Washer Hose?My children bought me a new washing machine for Christmas but it can't be hooked up because the old hose is rusted to the water faucet. How do I get this unscrewed without breaking the faucet?


A shrub with reddish leaves.

What Is This Shrub?Can anyone identify this shrub? It has oval shaped maroon/burgundy colored leaves and is about 4 feet tall. It is currently planted in a partly shady spot in very wet, clay soil. This may be why it is sparse and not full. I would like to move it to a full sun location in soil with no clay. I need some advice. Thank you in advance for all replies.

Red and swollen fingers.

Treating Dyshidrotic Eczema?Since moving to a warmer climate country a number of years ago, every summer, I developed small blisters on the sides of fingers along with itching of the affected area. Unsure of what this was I visited a doctor and dermatologist and I was diagnosed with dyshidrotic eczema, and prescribed a cortisone cream to apply to affected areas. I was also advised to keep the hands moisturized, and also take an antihistamine for the itching.


A doll resembling a nutcracker or Santa.

Identifying a Doll Maker?I purchased this "doll" on eBay and it is marked on the bottom "Sharon Kaminisy 91" I don't know if this is the maker. I found another doll maker "Debbie Garlem" on the Bittersweet Pastimes site and I thought this doll looked a little like her work, any thoughts.

A cat with a wound under his ear.

My Cat Scratching Under His Ear?My cat has scratched the fur off under his ear and he will not stop scratching it. How do we stop him from scratching the area so it will heal?

Some dying bottlebrush bushes.

What Is Killing These Bottlebrush Bushes?We have had these bottlebrush bushes in our backyard for about ten years. This past year they look like they are slowly dying. They have been watered the same way for the past ten years through our water sprinkling system. A week ago my husband put fertilizer on them but it hasn't done too much. I was thinking maybe we need to prune the dead away but I don't know if that would help. Any suggestions what is wrong with this bush?
