    Fix Up an Old Laptop!

    Thank you for your help. It appears I just need to see if I can fix it myself.

    I am going to check out your links and see what I can figure out. It was such a snap to move things around in old desktops, but I have never opened one of these. Thanks for your help.

    That was my thought, too, but I understand from WOLF above that these cases, used, are in short supply. Thank you for that help. You guys are the greatest.

    You are 100% correct. I don't know how you did that. That little ENVY has the fingerprint thing on it. I guess I will see if my husband and I can figure out how to fix that hinge. IF you move the screen part around it seems to try to form a wedge that opens the case so I can't move it.Thank you for all your help. Guess I am not the only one with that problem. Wish I had taken it up with tech support even though it was out of warranty.

    I was excited to see this since I have a very expensive computer but one hinge on the case is broken so it can't be closed. Your comment about a broken case disappointed me. I was hoping I could use an old case I already have and just transfer the parts over, but I am clueless as to how to do that.

    Very clever. I wonder if a rat could get into it? We needed this back in the day when our kids' pet mice and rats would escape in the house and we would have to search endlessly for the little beasts.

    Kitchen Scraper as Never Seen Before

    Very, very clever. Getting things from the cutting board into the kettle or onto the plate always seems to be a problem. Now to find a plastic cup!Might I say...I have noticed how clever people are from the Ukraine and it brings us all closer together the way our ideas help one another.PLUS...i really like the way you put this video together...simple with great music so language is not a problem.

    Unusual Uses for Mouthwash

    I have heard that tea tree oil is an endocrine disruptors. I was using it on my dog and read that and stopped immediately.http://www.ecowatch.com/are-lavender-and-tea-tree-essential-oils-hormone-disruptors-1882143092.html

    Hydrogen peroxide and rubbing alcohol are much cheaper and in many of these instances will do just as well. I use a ton of white vinegar for various things like sanitizing and cleaning veggies and fruits. I but two gallons at time at Sams for about $ 4...hope that is right.

    Hard Cook Eggs with Steam

    I steam my eggs for 20 minutes and then immediately plunge them in ice water. This is the greatest thing ever if you are cooking a couple of dozen at a time OR if the eggs are fresh from the store since they will peel nicely.You can also bake eggs in the oven, but I've never tried it since I have never needed more than 2 dozen at a time.If you had to cook hundreds of eggs, say for an egg hunt, the oven would be the place to do it.BTW, I do not leave the eggs out to reach room temp beforehand.

    Any hardware store carries it. I bought my last roll at Lowe's.
