Acknowledging the Anniversary of a Loved One's Passing
Thank you so much for posting the idea. When I became a widow, I felt so alone after the family had left and friends got on with their lives. I have remarried, but it still means so much to me when some one remembers me.
Boric Acid for Killing Roaches?
I took off the electrical outlet face plates and squirted boric acid into the openings around the outlet. It falls down onto the floor inside the walls where roaches hide. Replace the face plates and the kids/animals are safe.
Hang Soap At Outdoor Spigot
Thank you. The last family gathering we had was in a state park so they had faucets where we were. But, the soap came in handy as we had a bunch of little ones who needed good hand washes before we ate. I left it hanging there for the next group.
Garden: Blue Iris
Thank you for correcting me. As I stated, I am not a gardener. A local gardener told me that was what it was, so I took his word for it. It looks different from the irises that are growing near it, so I suppose its a different species? Thank you for the compliment...
Garden: Mama's Rose
This rose is beautiful! It is so delicate, it looks almost like porcelain. I like that you call it Mamas Rose. Thank you for sharing.
Transporting Soup for Potlucks
Fantastic idea! Sometimes, I use the large plastic coffee cans to take food to pot lucks. You can decorate them easily and if you dont get them back you havent lost much.
Keeping Birds Off My Car?
Paint the underside of your carport roof blue. Dont know why it works, but it does. Also, hang some old CDs from the ceiling with string or fishing line. The flash of the light on them as they twist and turn scares the birds away.
Diet Plan After Gallbladder Surgery?
I had my gall bladder removed several years ago. It came on suddenly with no forewarning, but I was literally dying when they wheeled me in. Now I eat just about any thing I want. I go very easy on fats on the doctors instructions, but that is the only concession...
Octagon Soap Wrapper Dishes?
Try Cyberattic.com I have found a lot of my glassware on that site.
Removing BO Odors from Clothing?
Use about a half cup of Fabreeze or some other odor remover in the wash water.
Making Olive Juice?
If you know a bar owner, you could get him/her to order the olive juice for you. They buy just juice for the dirty martinis in gallons.
Homemade Napisan Recipe?
When I had little ones, I used a cup of laundry detergent and a cup of bleach in a diaper pail of water to soak the diapers (nappy). Then I just ran them through the regular cycle in the washing machine using no additional laundry products.
Do Speed Bumps and Steel Plates Damage Cars?
Usually neighborhood and/or parking lots will have a speed limit posted. It is best to go that speed or even lower. That is why the signs are posted...to let you know a safe speed for going over the bumps. If your car is low to the ground, the entire undercarriage...
Decorating a White and Pink Apartment?
Yes. Green. When I moved into this house, the kitchen counter tops were a light pink color. I painted the cabinets green. It looks great.
Madison Lee "Alyssa" Doll?
You might try to find it on Cyberattic.com or RubyLane.com. That might get you started to finding a price range.
Container for Laundry Lint
I love the idea of putting dryer lint in a coffee can. I had been using a large trash can that always seemed to be in my way, so now, its out with the big trash can and in with the coffee can! I cant believe I hadnt thought of this before. Thanks!
