Go Grandma Go! I have a very high curiosity quotient precariously weighted on a fulcrum of too little time and minimal resources. These particular attributes make for a very clever and resourceful attitude of, "How can I do (X) with what I have"?! Interests: Upholstery and furniture design, rebuilding vintage lamps, retired chef, occasionally non-retired genetic genealogist with a penchant for finding one's genetic line MRCA's (Most Recent Common Ancestor).

  • LED Tape - Under Cabinet Lighting - No soldering!

    I've never attempted anything like this. Is it removable? IE; I live in an apt and don't want to leave any traces of my handiwork when I eventually move.

    How To Make Butter (and Buttermilk)

    Whatever machine the user decides to use to make beautiful butter from whole cream, keep in mind these things;1) Keep the cream and vessel cold and from getting warm throughout the process. Warmth makes cream angry and it just won't behave well to make butter, and it's resulting buttermilk.2) If using a machine (Food Processor, hand mixer, stand mixer, your hand with a whip in it), follow these steps: Freeze the vessel and whips prior to mixing (NOT your hand, though - that's an OSHA fine). Have the whole cream icey cold - but definitely NOT crystallized from partial freezing. While you may love to snap the key off a crispy cold, partially crystallized cola to drink at it's perfect temp and balance, starting whole cream that COLD will stall if not destroy the structures needed to build ...see more »Whatever machine the user decides to use to make beautiful butter from whole cream, keep in mind these things;1) Keep the cream and vessel cold and from getting warm throughout the process.

While you may love to snap the key off a crispy cold, partially crystallized cola to drink at it's perfect temp and balance, starting whole cream that COLD will stall if not destroy the structures needed to build the cream into butter and it's remaining milk.3) It takes longer depending on the temp in the room, temp of the whole cream, any transference of heat to the vessel from your machine, etc. Consider heat your enemy.4) Drain the buttermilk from the butter using at least a 2x strainer. After draining, run the butter under cold tap water to wash away the residual milk. That can make it sour quickly and it tastes icky. Have fun! And, don't use words like icky when you are writing instructions.1 qt GV whole cream makes approximately 13.5 oz butter & 16 oz buttermilk prior to the curdling/souring process.

    How To Cleanly Remove Blackheads Painlessly!

    I like it when brilliant people who are educated in the subject at hand, respond. Thank you, Jeremy. I think her suggestion is a nice short term fix for very youthful skin, that's constantly regenerating itself anyway, even when moderate hygiene is practiced. Frankly, at my age, I could apply Polyken-290FR tape to my nose and it would only pull off a few small hairs. Thank you gawd, for making plastic surgeons who are trained of science. SO many nuances to consider for a simple answer, aye?
