Value of 1986 Britannica Great Books

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

This set is not like a regular encyclopedia set and is worth money. Lots of books are sold on eBay but it does take a little work to get them listed.

Some people are selling them as a set while others are selling them as individual books. You do not say how many is in your set but you can take a look at some listings on eBay and see if yours is a match. Books are very slow sellers but if you list them you might get $150 dollars or more but it may not be for a long time as sellers of books usually leave books listed for months and even years. these are very difficult to pack and ship. You could try listing on Craigslist and take less but maybe sell sooner.

Here are links to sets listed on eBay and the second link are sets that actually sold and how much was paid.

What Breed Is My Dog?

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

It is very difficult to tell very much from a photo even for an expert - they like to see the dog.

If you really want to know you can have a DNA test done. DNA test kits cost usually runs $65 - 200 dollars and can be purchased at most pet stores, on-line and from your vet.

Here is a link to an example but these are sold at Amazon, eBay and many more on line stores.

Puppy Keeps Running Away

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

I have had 3 Shelties and they like to run around in circles,, run away and bark incessantly. Because these are innate behaviors I have not been able to train her to do otherwise. Our house rule is that no one, under any circumstances opens an exterior door unless she is in her crate or in the dog run.

Starch Stains on my Shirt

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

It happened to me so now I make my own starch very cheaply. I bought a small pump sprayer for plants, very cheaply in UK we have Poundland where everything cost £1. This sprayer has a piston to manually pump up the pressure and is great when there is a lot of spraying involved.

Use cornflour and cold water with perhaps a splash of vodka to keep it fresh and shake it all up. I can't give exact amounts but a teaspoon of cornflour would be a good starting point with perhaps half a litre of water. Always shake before you soray - every time. I have had great fun with this starch and it is so cheap!

Uses for Old Sheet Music

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

Just because it is "out of date" doesn't mean no one wants to listen to it anymore. My S O plays in a piano bar and he still gets requests for songs that are a lot older than I am - 77! I agree with all those who suggested that you try to find someone who would like to have the music. Just because it is tattered is not an excuse to cut it up for some "cute" project. We are still listening to music that is hundreds of years old - Bach, Beethoven, Mozart come to mind.

I would like to address your recent article in the star telegram. Tire pressure to high is better than to low. You should set your tire pressure to the recommended pressure, when tire is cold. This will solve any issues of to high or to low, the manufacturer has tested this PSI to assure the optimum amount of air. You should check your air pressure at least every 30 days, as rubber is porous and will lose air. I don't know of any tire store that will not do this for you, as they can also check tires for uneven wear, etc.

Cleaning Throw Pillows

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

I agitate mine with a super mild detergent, mist with water and lay in the sun.

Read More
July 21, 20170 found this helpful

I guess the question would be - do the pillows just need refreshing or are they dirty?

Febreze is good for refreshing but does no cleaning.

According to the material contents of the pillows, outside materials, decorations, and/or strong colors you may be able to clean them outside.

Give some thought to whether you think the pillow colors will run, fade, or damage any decorations (like tassels).

Lay pillow in a flat lawn chair (with holes in seat) and spray both sides of pillow with Spray n' Wash or similar spot cleaner (nothing with bleach). Stand pillow up - lean against back of chair - and let stand for at least 30 minutes (sunshine is okay).

Leave pillow in chair and take garden hose on slow/medium water and rinse the pillow from top to bottom. Let it drain some and then turn it around and do the same on opposite side. Leave in chair for several hours and then turn it upside down and do the same thing again until water runs clear. Leave in chair to drain and dry - sunshine is good - change positions several times. If any stains remain (even lines from cleaner) rinse again.

I have done this several times for my children (they have dogs) and never had a problem. Just make sure your pillow is not one of those really fancy ones (unless you have no choice).

Removing Blood Stains on Memory Foam Mattress

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

spray bottle with 1 part hydrogen peroxide, 1 part water, 2-3 drops dawn dish detergent (can omit if necessary to prevent suds if using on a memory foam) 2 tsp baking soda...shake well in bottle use immediately and let soak in for a few minutes for surface cleaning..scrub a little to remove fresh stain, blot as dry as possible

use hair dryer on mattress, use fan on memory foam, making sure that all are completely dry before remaking the bed. my daughter has 3 sons, a cream colored couch and removes not only blood, but vomit koolaid spills etc...if using on a colored item test for colorfast as peroxide will lighten...as she had a large puke stain to clean she ended up doing whole couch as the cleaner really cleaned the spot making a noticeable difference..lol...a lot of work but her couch turned out looking brand new again

Frugal Tips for Trip to Niagara Falls

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

Your present accommodations at the Clifton Victoria Inn in Canada are probably some of the best as you have free parking (very necessary if you will be renting a car) and free buffet breakfast is a very good deal - if you and your children can make this a main meal. I'm sure there will be coffee available in your room.

The closer the time of departure gets start looking for coupons as these can save you a lot of money. Your child that is 13 (not 12 going on 13?) will be treated as an adult with all tickets and accommodations - so you really have 3 adults and 1 child.

You do not say how many days you will stay but I feel sure this is a vacation that you will want to remember many years from now so keep that is mind when you consider the cost.

Staying at a hotel/motel a little further away from Niagara Falls can save you a lot of money but then you have to consider the travel costs and inconvenience of having to travel.

Hotels/motels with kitchens can save money on meals and snacks and also give a little more room for a family but may not have as much privacy. These are also not always as nice as the hotels that are closer to the falls.

Here is a link to some spots with kitchens so you can think about a change (or if it is worth it).

What Breed Is My Dog?

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

Your puppy will change rapidly over the first year and even second year so it would difficult to look at a young puppy's photo and even make an educated guess. Even experts have difficulty looking at a pup this young.

Ask your vet when you take him/her to get their check-up and shots/vaccinations. Here is a link to a schedule of what your pup will need their first year.

http://www.akc.  -complete-guide/

If you want to know the breed for sure, you will need to have a DNA test done. You can purchase DNA test kits from many pet stores, on-line (Amazon, eBay, etc) and from your vet. The cost is usually between $65 - 200 dollars.

Here is a link to an example of what you would get.

Is My Dog a Full Blood Pit?

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

So cute! That is a picture you should frame.

Many people think their dogs are pure bred when in fact they may have several mixes in their past blood line. If you do not know the parents of your puppy, you may only have someone's "belief" that your puppy is pure bred.

Photos can lie and puppies change rapidly their first and even second year so most people would just be guessing when looking at a photo.

Be sure to take your puppy for their checkup and get all of their shots and vaccinations. Your vet may also be able to tell you a little about their breed/mix.

Here is a link to a schedule of what your puppy needs their first year.

DNA test kits are available at most pet stores, on-line and from your vet. The cost runs between $65 - 200 dollars.

Introducing New Kitten to Resident Cats

Changes take time and patience. Try to not make too many changes to your 2 resident cats lives and continue to treat them just as loving - or more - as you did before getting your new baby. Add attention to the baby with as little fanfare as possible and keep the baby in another room. If possible change rooms for the little guy but leave all bedding for the other ones to investigate.

The new baby will have to become adjusted little by little even if he cries. This is all new to all of them and only time and patience will help. Many people want to force the "peace" but it takes lots of love and patience no matter how you try to do it.

What Breed Is My Dog?

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

Knowing the breed is nice but the main concern with a puppy is being sure they see a vet and get a check up and all of their first year shots and vaccinations. Having a rabies vaccination is a law in most states but necessary and the Parvovirus vaccination is essential as Parvo is a frightful/dangerous thing for any pet.

Here is a link that has a schedule for what your puppy will need the first year.

http://www.akc.  -complete-guide/

As for what breed the only way to be sure is with a DNA test. These test kits cost $65 - 200 dollars and are available from most pet stores, on-line (Amazon, eBay, etc.) and from your vet. This is a nice thing to have and know but the puppy's health should come first.

Here is a link to an example of a DNA test.

Here is a fun site that you can upload a photo of your puppy and a computer answer will tell you what it thinks your puppy's mix could be - fun only but sometimes pretty accurate.

Selling Porcelain Doll Making Supplies

July 22, 20170 found this helpful

This is a nice thing that you are trying to help him. I agree that it would be nice if he could realize some money from all of these mementos but there may also be a safety factor.

First: will it be safe for him to have people come to his house to look at the stuff you are talking about? does he have other things in his house that someone may want to steal? It is true that many times people will make like they are interested in buying (or even buy something) but they are really "casing" the house and the people to see what else is around. If he now lives alone this could be a problem later on - especially if it looks like he is not too savvy about what is really going on.

I think a local flea market may be a good idea, especially if he has someone to help him. The problem is that some flea markets now charge high daily fees so people have to sell a lot to just break even.

Have you thought about a yard sale? This may work and perhaps you could help him with something like this.

Sometimes local churches have "flea market" type sales and let people set up tables so this might be another area.

My only concern is his age and vulnerability so if you keep that in mind I feel sure you will be able to help him.

If donating to a charity, please consider Hospice or Habitat as I have worked with both of these and they do good things with their money (most of it).

Please let us know how things work out.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was inquiring for an elderly neighbor. He does not have a computer or the knowhow to sell online via easy or eBay. He may need to take the things to a flea market just to make it a quick sale. Anything he is unable to sell, he will donate to a local charity. He just needs to clean out and has no use for the things. It is sad that his wife loved making the dolls and left behind supplies and dolls when she passed away. No family members were interested in any of it, leaving him to dispose of it all. If he could make a few dollars from it, he would be thrilled, but at this point, he will be happy to have it out of his way.

Cleaning Dirt and Mud from Work Clothes

July 21, 20170 found this helpful

First thing to try is to be sure you have as much caked or loose dirt/mud removed (outside) as possible. If you have a long table outside you can lay them out, wet and use a large brush to remove as much as possible before placing in the washer. You will not want to do this everyday so finding a good solution for your washer will be necessary.

I have always liked adding washing soda to my laundry with a stronger detergent (Tide, Wisk) and wash in warm water and never overload the washer. If drying is necessary, partially dry outside and then dry on fluff (no heat) - this works and will not set stains. Finish drying in laundry room if necessary.

Here are some suggestions that others have used and found useful:

Mean Green - Lestol - washing soda and a good splash of Simple Green - 1 cup of ammonia to wash along with detergent.

Check out these suggestions from past questions.

Getting Rid of Black Flying Insects

July 21, 20170 found this helpful

These do not sound like any ordinary food & water type bugs. Are you killing them or do they disappear in the daytime?

I do not know what part of the country you live in but some bugs are more prevalent in some areas than others. I would suggest you take your photos and gather a few bugs in a zip-lock baggie and pay a visit to a pest control office. I know they will try to sell you their service but doing that is up to you.

Here is a link to find your county agency that may be able to help you.

What Are These Houseplants?

July 21, 20170 found this helpful

Since these are newly purchased plants, I would suggest you ask the nursery personnel to give you the correct names - just to be sure.

I cannot see the large plant in the back very well but it looks like a Red Tip Photinia to me. Here is a link with some information but if this is a red tip then it is an outdoor shrub.

I hope you find it. There is a movie that I saw in the 1950s that I've been looking for for years. I was pretty sure of the lead actor and part of the title. Haven't found it yet!

I remember a movie that sounds like what you describe but the names given are not the ones I remember as it definitely was black & white. We used to watch the 2 Alfred Hitchcock series and I think it was in one of those, but haven't found it yet.

Sorry but it doesn't look too hopeful right now. It seems someone ask this question some years ago as I remember looking for it but did not find it - but same movie I think.

Singer Sewing Machine Won't Stitch

July 21, 20170 found this helpful

I would suggest you take it to a sewing/quilting shop/store and ask them as most of these people have a lot of experience with all types of machines. Sometimes it is something simple but other times it may need a new part.

You do not say that it was working the last time you used it but if it was, maybe you just need to unplug everything and replug just in case something did not sync correctly.

If a shop is not located in your area, try calling a shop and asking your question. I have even gotten some good answers from JoAnn's and Michael's craft stores.

Removing Yellow Age Stains on Vintage Crochet Afghan

July 21, 20170 found this helpful

I would suggest washing it in a large lingerie bag for sure so as to not twist it as the threads may be weakened from age.

Use a gentle or delicate cycle and use plenty of water (full load) so the agitation will not damage the fibers. You can add other light colored items but hot too many - slow gentle swish is what you need.

Use mild soap (Liquid Woolite is good) and add some baking soda. Let soak for several hours (maybe turning machine on once in a while for a couple of minutes). Wash for only a few minutes and double rinse - add a cup of vinegar on second rinse.

Find a nice flat surface where sunshine will be for several hours and shape your afghan so it will dry in the proper shape.

This should work but if any yellow remains just pour water on the spot and let the sunshine (and even dew overnight) do the work for you.

I have had to do this many times over the years and it usually always worked.

Store in a cotton pillow case and never in plastic.

What Kind of Snake Is This?

July 21, 20170 found this helpful

It looks similar to the West Virginia common watersnake but even the same species can have different markings/colors.

Here is a quote from the state web site.

The Common Watersnake is probably the most defensive snake in

the state and is popularly referred to as the water moccasin, not to be confused with the Eastern Cottonmouth a venomous species found to our south. There are no confirmed records of the cottonmouth or any venomous water snakes occurring within West Virginia.

You can check these sites but if you want to know for sure, you can send a photo to the Marshall University and they will help you.

Repair Assistance for Senior Citizen

July 21, 20170 found this helpful

Have been in a financial mess for the pass 8 months now, I am a single mum with kids to look after. My name Mrs Marticia Robbert, and I am from California . A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about Mr Harrry Smith

via(harrysmithloanfinance@gmail.com), that he can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. She advised I give it a try because he helped her too by granting her a loan to revive her dying business. so I mailed him, and explain all about my financial situation to him, he therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $280,000.00 as I have applied for and today I am a proud business owner. all i did was to follow the term and condition of the loan. I'm so happy I did. All thanks to you Mr Harry Smith for helping me out of my financial mess. I'm sharing this because I too care about you all. I can never stop thanking you for your help. I'm telling the world about your kindness in my life God bless you sir. If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 3% and better repayment schedule, please contact Harry Smith email(harrysmithloanfinance@gmail.com)

thank you so much
