    T-shirt Rug

    Sew the necks closed before you start. Then you can use the sewing machine..zigzag stitch. Much faster than hand sewing. And instead of just sewing the tshirts to each other, sew them to a backer piece, an old sheet or blanket. It will be more solid, less stretchy, and easier to handle.

    Boy are you working hard to keep smoking! Maybe nicotine patches and just water in your hookah.

    I don't understand the "string" instructions and the link to the video doesn't work.

    This could be worthwhile if you directed the cool air and didn't expect it to cool the entire room. If it blew on you while sitting at a desk, or watching tv or even sleeping, it might make quite a difference even though the overall effect in the room might be minimal.

    Easy Collapsible Worktable

    Depending on the width of the table and the length of the legs, the legs could fold toward the wall which might be useful if you wanted to use a hollow core door. It would mean the interior framework of the door could be the support for the hinges as the legs could be on the outer edge of the door.

    DIY Yellow Jacket Bottle Trap

    Honeybees are what are used by commercial growers to pollinate our food crops. Commercial growers, especially fruit, grow so much of a single crop with a short period of bloom, it is necessary to bring in pollinators. Single crop farming means there is not enough food year round for enough native pollinators to live on so honey bees are brought in and moved around as different crops come into bloom. They are necessary for commercial food production.

    Sorry, my global warming comment was sarcastic and unnecessary.

    Sorry, my global warming comment was sarcastic and unnecessary. But the bee keepers I know, and I know 4 different ones, are having trouble keeping their hives alive through the winter. These are experienced keepers who have had bees for years and this is a new problem. I do not know about wild bees personally, but I don't think it's unreasonable to be concerned that they too may face the same problems.

    Yeah, and global warming is a hoax too

  • How to Lose 100+ Pounds and Keep it Off For Life

    Basically very good advice. My only suggestion is that age is a factor when counting baseline calorie needs. As we age, our metabolism slows down and we require fewer calories. Even with regular moderate exercise, at 5'6" and 150 lbs, if I exceed 1500 calories a day, I will gain weight. To lose 1-2 lbs a week I must keep my calories close to 1000 a day. And I might add, that last 10 lbs,so far, seems to be impossible!

  • 2x4 End Grain Cutting Board / Butcher Block

    I am an RN and once read a study where they contaminated wood and plastic cutting boards with Salmonella. Within 24 hours the wood boards were clear of bacteria but the plastic boards were still contaminated. Since then, I clean my wood boards well after cutting meats but don't worry about bacteria lurking and growing in the pores and crevices between uses. When I worked as a kitchen manager, we wiped the wooden surfaces with a bleach solution between uses, but still cut meats on a surface separate from where we cut fruits and vegetables.

    Grocery Bag Wrapping Paper

    You said the turtle took longer thsn the duck because of all the lines. I think I would just paint it like the duck, obscuring the lines, and then redraw the lines once the paint dried. Cute idea though. I use paper bags to wrap packages to mail but I haven't thought to draw a pattern and use it for wrapping paper.
