    NOT JUST ANOTHER RUBBER BAND GUN

    your project is fantastic workmanship and stands in a class of it's own. PLEASE paint that icky orange on the end of the barrel so the toy can be recognized as a toy. I personally think it will take away from the beauty of the woods but kids will be kids and play, yell I'm going to shoot you. Your work looks so real. I fear a police office may not be able to tell it is a toy in twilight or in a split second situation.

    I thought there was an administrator that filtered trolls and the rules are, be nice or be gone. We are fortunate to have people participate from all over. The opportunity to gain knowledge and customs from other cultures is invaluable and can not be regarded as incorrect because the grammar and syntax is different.

    DIY Yellow Jacket Bottle Trap

    Wasps are a part of the ecosystem. They feed their young caterpillars. They actually are pollinators. With the collapse of the bee population they are filling in for pollinators in apple orchards and other areas. My daughter gave a report and the statistic that one biology person gave was we would be knee deep in caterpillars if the wasps did not eliminate the larvae. If the hive is in a place they are causing no harm, leave it alone. If kids or people are getting hurt, take action. Paper Wasps die in the winter and the paper shell is a dead hive. The next year wasps will not move in to a used hive. Grandma always said that a dead hive is a do not trespass sign to the future generations. If you leave the hive so it freezes you probably will not have another hive in your shed. It is f...

    Vibrator - a Layered Shot

    Why not take the little lady out for a show and A drink. You order it for her and enjoy the eve. Sounds of things that you are afraid the bottle will sit for 10 years, stick with one because it has multiple shots of liquor in it. But biscotti is wonderful with the almond liquor in it. I take that stuff to the BYOB parties and forget it.

    My Granny's Homemade Tomato Sauce

    I work hard to keep all areas very clean. Iwash counters, scrub sinks and wash the jars and tools in the dishwasher (and Iam lucky enough to have the steam sanitize setting on my dishwasher). (It is asetting that cost $$$ and my hubby thought it was a waste of money but he doesnot can. A happy momma is a happy home)When I have the jarsclean and out of the dishwasher, I line them up and add 1 Tablespoon of lemonjuice to each quart. This lowers the ph to a higher acid level. I have used 5%vinegar. (2TBLS) this does not "change the taste" of thetomatoes. I wash and skin thetomatoes by the hot boil and cold blanch. The skins slip off.I pack the tomatoes injars and run a knife in the jar to eliminate the air bubbles. I fill and leave1/2 inch from the rim. I clean the rims with whit...

The skins slip off.I pack the tomatoes injars and run a knife in the jar to eliminate the air bubbles. I fill and leave1/2 inch from the rim. I clean the rims with white vinegar on a paper towel; Icheck the rims for chips and cleanness by cleaning with a wet (with whitevinegar) paper towel. Then wet your finger with vinegar and rub the top likeyou are going to make music with a fine wine glass. An unbroken jar will make asqueak sing sound. You can feel if the rim has a chip, do not use that jar ifyou have a chip, dump our product in another jar or refrigerate it to use in afood dish that eve or the next day. If I have a chipped rim I will mark the jarwith a piece of tape, sticker or a mark to make sure it does not cycle throughthe canning jars. I am lucky to live in an area that has recycling; I justrecycle it right away. I boil the flats andplace them on the jar and secure the ring. The very importantpart of canning is to destroy any and all bacteria that are in the air, on yourhands and on all tools. The research and discoveries show the old methods arenot always the best or safe method.To do this I hot waterbath my tomatoes (with added acid). I have the big canners and I submerge the closedjars in water in the canner and make sure the jars are covered at least 2inches. I boil quarts 20 minutes at a ROLLING boil. You start timing the 20minutes when the rolling boil starts. My brother says a slow boil is 212degrees, DON'T listen to my brother. ROLLING!!!! He lost product with hisgentle simmer.It is best to getschooling with an experienced caning person. They can show some simple tricksof tools, handling and cleanness. The extension department (state) has moderncanning tips, sit in the library and peruse the MODERN canning books for acouple of hours. It will be worth your time. I have been canning for 45 yearsand can for 2 families. Right now I have 35 tomato plants and they are veryhappy with all of the rain. Yesterday I canned 26 quarts. Today I will probablyharvest 4-5 bushels.I am the first topreach processing time and pressure cooking. I still read and reread books. Ikeep canning books at home, I found a favorite and I recheck processing timesfor pickles, jams, and jellies. I check with a modern canning book water bathtimes or pressure cooker times.Do not skip the notwater bath and pressure cooking low acid foods. I use lemon juice to increasethe acid level in tomatoes so I do not have to pressure cook. The modern tomatohybrids have eliminated some of the natural acidity. A home canning process hasto replace the acid.I bought an electricpressure cooker and it is NOT recommended to can meat and fish. You still needto have a cooker with a weight.

    Homemade Fabric Softener

    I use some ammonia. I have a top loader and I put in just enough water to soak the arm pit shirts and dump in the ammonia. Let it soak over night and fill the tub the rest of the way and use regular detergent and throw in the rest of the load. You may find you need less detergent. When we lived base housing I had a 5 gallon bucket with a lid and would soak cloths in it, I would leave it on the balcony, carry the bucket of ammonia water and shirts to the wash house and just dump it in the washer and add the other cloths. The ammonia would take out the ickies of BDU's. You have to remember that if you have soap suds, that is a signal that there is too much soap. Too much soap will make your clothes feel stiff.

My brother in law fixes appliances. One of the main complaints is that the washing machine does not rinse out all of the soap. DUH! Use less soap.In my old age I have started to just soak over night with that powdered arm and hammer with oxiclean. Great Grandma had a wringer washer in a wash shed and would take all of the clothes out there and would soak and wash cloths in ammonia and detergent, rinse and hang them to dry. On a dairy farm there is a lot of everything to wash out. She emptied the wash water on the garden. We never had softener. I still enjoy line dried clothes.
