bein in the shed that was sittin

was doin what he was hired for Id
reckon, watchin the gate. The fact that
he could get a little work done on his tan

HERES A TIP
"To keep a pet from
chewing on an electrical cord, rub the length of
the cord lightly with a bar of soap. One taste is

over a bar of soap to keep dirt out from nails
while gardening. This has been repeated several

hair at home can be done inexpensively. Chill a
can of coconut milk so it solidifies, then rub

"Instead of using
creamer in my iced coffee drinks, I use a
powdered protein that I purchase at the vitamin
store. It adds a creamy quality and a little
extra nutrition." -- C.D. in Florida
An old piece of wisdom
thats worth repeating for the picnic
season: Keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold.
Take along several kitchen timers set for 1 hour.
Check food to make sure it is maintaining its
Quickie window cleanup:
