Mushrooms on My Lawn
I may have great soil, but I am wondering if it is due to a tree we cut down two years ago. They started appearing after the buzzing of the tree. ~Wendola~

Glad I was able to help you out Shirley .. :-) I sometimes want the bigger resolution to see what web pages will look like in a bigger resolution. Some framed sites tend to look funny if you don't allow for the bigger resolution. ~Wendola~

The Zip lock bags may have not been intended for use that that way, but if you use freezer bags it really doesnt seem to both them. The regular ones do melt if not paying attention to them laying on the pot. ~Wendola~

Why won't my printer print?
Sybil, If you still cant get it to print after the re-boots, check all connections to the printer making sure they are still all plugged in. Also, make sure they are not covered in dust as that can make a bad connection as well. If dusty remove the connection...

Homemade Wedding Favors
I like bird seed netted throws for the bride and groom as they are leaving. Bird seed is much better for the birds who help with making your clean up easy. Instead of the tradition rice that is thrown. I think a lot of churches require you use bird seed instead...

Make Your Own Soil Testing Kit
Im curious myself how you are able to make your own because I have only found kits that you can buy. If you were to make one yourself it seems like it would be a lot of work. The kit prices vary and I bet the results do as well. Looking foward to some feedback...

Orange Oil For Cleaning Furniture
I agree a little goes a long way. I cring when I see people spray or dump oil directly onto their wood instead of placing the cleaning agent onto the rag/towel.. You should never put the oil directly on wood as it could damage the item. ~Wendola~

Rooting a Geranium
-- Mine didn't grow; they all died. What did I do wrong? ---------- Michelle, I dont think you did anything wrong. You might have brought them out to soon and frost got them. Where do you live? Or you may have not given them enough water. ~Wendola~

Or the next time you decide to pitch old clothing in the trash or give it to goodwill just mop up a spill with it instead. You can always wash the rags and use them again if you use mechinacs hand cleaner to wash them. ~Wendola~

I have found the discs fairly cheap in 1 lb bags at a craft store.. If, you wait until this time of year they go on sale. The discs last for quiet awhile before they go bad. You just have to shop around a little bit to find them at a good price. ~Wendola~
