How can I get my dog to stop scratching himself?

My dog Scooby has been scratching himself a lot lately. We put flea stuff on him but it didn't really help. Usually he scratches the same spots so he gets sores. I don't know what to do about it and it must really be uncomfortable. What can I do?

Looking for safe "recipie" to create a scratch card for messages that people can uncover by scratching cards with a coin Answered

I would like to learn how to make some sort of ointment to put on cards that will not scratch too easily, yet that will let itself be taken off with the help of a coin or any other sharp-edged objects. The possibility of changing the colour of the ointment would be great as i would like to include the cards as part of an art project which be very colourful. The ointment should apply smoothly on the card to avoid bloaches and bubbling, should have a good shelf-life and be completely safe in the hands of artists and "scratchers" alike. The art piece is going in an art exhibition on September 6th, 2009 so it would be great if I had the recipie beforehand to create the cards. Many thanks to all who are interested in looking into this ;) Mariounette

Make Cement From Scratch? Answered

I have spent a great deal of time working on this question yet, I have no solid answer to go on.  I tend to enjoy acquiring a skill set which would be very useful come TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it).  I am far from a prepper, however I still entertain a slight possibility and see no problem with learning how to do a little more than cope. These skills extend from knowing where to grow, gather, and how to store penicillin to simple things like a yeast starter 100% from scratch.  Brewing and distilling are also handy because it makes a great trade item.  These are all things you never see in the Walking Dead or any other TEOTWAWKI cinema.  One of the more important skills I believe would be conjuring fortress walls from rocks in the form of a little thing we know as concrete which we all take for granted.  Now I could mix portland cement and filler with some water all day long and make a pretty cool fortess, but seriously.  All the home depots in my state wouldn't have enough quick rite for that.  So today I wan't to know what general rocks and minerals (that you can find in nature) can you combine to make cement.  I know there are all kinds of fancy names for these, but what I really need is some good old generalities.  Tell me to go outside grab a handful of clayish dirt, but it in a kiln with some lime and grind it up.  I'm not looking for top of the line stuff here, this just needs to be able to hold a general form for a few years and be a little bullet resistant.  This is for a crude fort, not the tallest building in the world or the hoover dam.  A simple mortar would also be nice, although there really aren't any stones around to put together, bricks aren't super hard to make with as much clay as we have in our soil. So join me and maybe I will put together an instructible on all the skills you actually need but don't have!

What this would mean: None of the following: -Canned Food -Bottled Food -Premixed Spices/Salts/etc.* *This means you can have a salt shaker, or a certain spice, say nutmeg, but you can't have 'Season All' or any spices which have two or more ingredients in them.

Building a motorcycle seat from scratch

Being an insatiable tinkerer, I an planning an exensive remodel on a '92 Honda 100. It's one of those all-plastic dirtbikes, and frankly, I'm too big for it in its current configuration. Not a problem I have often, but man is it annoying! The price was right, and I needed a functional sled, so here we are. I'm in the midst of designing/modifying and buiding a tank for it that is bigger and metal. As such, the current seat has to go. I don't want to hack up the seat because I'd like to have the option to return to stock. I would like to put a seat on it that is reminiscent of 70s Hondas, just new and on the cheap. Does anyone have any experience/ideas with building a seat like this? I've got a lot of foam (but probably not the "right" sort), and a masters degree in duct tape upholstery. I've made all-metal seatpans before, but these were aways solo saddles. Any tips/tricks/technquies that might make my life easier in this endeavor?

how to build a circuit for a micro remote control vehicle.?

I am trying to make a very small receiver and transmitter from scratch to remote control many very small devices, specifically movement. the transmitter has to be an integrated circuit, but on a scale that is not sold commercially. this may be a bit vague but could anyone give me schematics for such a thing? keep in mind, i need 6 channel control and i might have thousands of separate units i have to control simultaneously. also if anyone can help with make the transmitter work with a computer, so that i can program all the functions for each of the machines from a computer, it would really help. Thanks! (p.s. i can't be much more specific)oh and i have all fabrication equipment i need from  photolithography as well as atomic force and scanning tunneling microscopes for building things on that scale, just to give an idea of what scale i'm talking about.

Scratched glass fixes? I accidentally scratched the mirrors in my bathroom when sanding the frame. Can this be fixed?

I was in the process of sanding down the wooden frames of my bathroom mirrors preparatory to refinishing them, and I didn't take the mirrors out first (duh!) Anyway, I was using 40 grit sandpaper, because the wood was pretty badly damaged from years of use without proper care, and ended up with some deep and ugly scratches in the glass. Biggest problem is that I'm just renting, so I'd really like to fix the problem before it is noticed by the owner, and having the mirrors replaced would be a financial pain in the neck, to say the least. So, does anybody have any ideas about fixing the scratches? Can I do something like I would with wood, using finer sandpaper in sequence, or will I just have more scratches of varying width and depth? How about buffing or polishing with or without some sort of filler?

Turntable Skipping

One of my records is scratched, and I thought it was impossible to play through perfectly because of how scratched it is.  I found out today that it IS possible!  I found that by adjusting the tone arm to track more lightly, the record would paly over the scratches instead of following them.  Alas, there is a pop when the needle goes over the scratch, but a pop is better than a skipped section of a song.  My tone arm doesn't have a counterweight on it, so I MacGyvered a way to balance it; I taped a fifty-cent piece to the end of it on the top to make it track lighter.  If your record player is skipping, give this a try before you clean your record in hopes of getting rid of the scratch.  This way is a lot easier.

Sculpting From Scratch: Class at the San Francisco Art Institute

For over one million years hominids have made and embellished tools. We make everything from fake flowers to 2,000 ft towers. However, in a world of Ikea and fast food, it is easy to forget the potential of our own hands. Sculpting from scratch combines engineering and play to make freestanding objects that entice the senses and provoke thought. Class projects will focus on learning how to use shop tools, repurposing refuse, articulating objects, illustrating intent, and the question of beauty. No prerequisite.Jesse Hensel is a contemporary artist whose work is informed by the Yup'ik woodcarving tradition. His rugged natural sculptures use an Alaskan frontier perspective to critique contemporary society. Recent San Francisco exhibitions include such venues as the de Young Museum and Mark Wolfe Contemporary. His team was honored with the Artist's Choice Award at the World Ice Art Multi-Block Classic in Fairbanks, Alaska. He received his BA in Liberal Arts at Sarah Lawrence College and his MFA in Sculpture from SFAI.Sculpting from ScratchInstructor: Jesse Hensel10 Sessions/Thursdays, June 4-August 6Time: 6:30-9:30pmLocation: Studio 105Number: SC1002Tuition: $400Apply: http://www.sfai.edu/Page.aspx?page=110&navID;=21&sectionID;=5
