    Solution to privacy invasion for airport screenings Here's the solution to the controversy over full-body scanners at airports: Have a booth that will not x-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on or in your body. It would be a win-win for everyone, and there would be...
  5. Health and beauty
    It is called a bra barrette and you can see it in action on YouTube. I think it would be easy to make one, too. I need this because all the other things pulled my straps too tight while this looks like a much better design that's even easier to use.
  6. Question and Answer
    Well it is that time of the year again. Does anyone know of anything that will help take care of razor bumps and in grown hairs? Sorry to be so specific but with bathing suit season upon us would really like to know what can help. I remember someone on tv suggesting a product that men and...
  7. Question and Answer
    Well I finally broke down and got contacts again. With my need for bifocals and wanting no-line bifocal glasses I realized I could get contacts for the same amount. Around here the price for non-line bifocals has realy gone up. I went to America's Best. I do not have any eye care insurance...

    I'm so proud of my 12 year old son's frugal solution. His younger sister was having trouble with the shampoo cap. we discovered this when half of a new family sized bottle was gone and dripping down the side of the tub the same day we opened it. So I thought a pump would be a solution. I...

    all the wonderful things i am so proud of many of you for doing - making hm soaps, candles, canning, making hm gifts, etc. and what i'm slightly jealous of - having room for an extra freezer to stock up, having space to keep all your extra bulk & sale items. LOL i've officially realized, and...
  14. Home Decorating
    Hmmm...I'm thinking this would be the modular bookcases and cabinets DH made when I was pregnant with DD#1. It's been 24 years and we're still using those hummers. They've changed colour a few times, but I've actually had one of the girls ask for a couple of these when they left the house to...
  15. Home Decorating
    Have you got one? I think mine would be the old wood camping boxes Dad had his students make for work in the bush. He was a wildlife biologist. Somehow I got those boxes. I've been using them for coffee tables ever since. Finally last year I stained the ugly plywood with a dark stain we had...
  16. Homesteading and gardening
    We have a 14 ft x 4 ft section in the front of the house that's going to be our place for the tomato plants. It's a good place to plant, however, we have stray cats around the neighborhood that have used that area as a litter box in the past. The skunks also like to dig for bugs, usually...
  17. Home Environment
    I am home decorating challenged and mostly home organizationally challenged as well. I'm really hoping I can glean some ideas from y'all. We are going to be moving soon. We have 2 kids, boy and a girl, so a 3 bedroom house would be ideal. But, one of the houses we are looking at is a 2...

    My bottle of contact solution says to rinse the lenses with contact solution for 5 seconds. Then you fill the dispenser with contact solution and soak the lenses. Well, I thought of this expensive solution rinsing the lenses and going down the drain. And I thought, it's not like it is super...

    This was emailed to me.... Years of bad decisions and stupid mistakes have created an economic nightmare in this country, but $700 billion in new debt is not the answer. As a tax-paying American citizen, I will not support any congressperson who votes to implement such a policy. Instead, I...

    Hey All, I know that we all are getting down about gas prices and how it will affect our lives. I was joking with a vendor at the antique store where I rent space that gas prices are getting so bad that instead of the Amish paying outsiders to drive them places, we are going to be paying the...
