Selling Bamboo Online

June 27, 20170 found this helpful

First - if you do not know already - you will have to determine what kind/type of bamboo you have. You will not be able to sell it until you know quite a bit about it and particularly how to harvest it to sell. There are some restrictions on selling on line that you would have to check out with your local county extension service to find out what permits or licenses you may need (if any). Selling in your local area may not require anything other than finding a market.

Generally, bamboo is a good seller so it seems contacting local nurseries, co-ops, feed stores, and farmers markets would be a good place to start. Of course, Flea markets, Craigslist and any other local auction site like Freecycle may also work.

If you are still thinking about selling on-line then eBay is a good site. Here is a link to what is currently listed on eBay.

Portulaca Grandiflora Border

June 27, 20170 found this helpful

Those seem to be doing nicely so your next article should be in the making soon. Sounds like a very interesting way to plant a nice border.

I did think Moss Rose was an annual so do you collect seeds or overwinter some of your plants? Some of mine die back (frost usually) but generally return later. I would like to fix a border but just planting a row does not always look that good and I usually have to keep it trimmed with an edger so I will be sure to read your post on using gutter strips.

Getting of Rats In My Yard

June 27, 20170 found this helpful

Try to clean up as much as possible, even piles of leaves and bird seed left on ground overnight. Are you saying your animals never go outside? How about neighbors pets? There are several good poisons available at stores like Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware but be sure this is what you want to use.

You can use Borax but it may have to be to be replaced after a rain but it can be used indoors also as it is not harmful to pets (only bugs).

Here are a couple of links that have some suggestions that you might be able to use.

My Puppy is Sick

June 27, 20170 found this helpful

What a jerk thing to say! I recently had a similar issue with my pups. What was the cause?? One swallowed a tiny G.I. Joe hand gun, less than an inch big. Two days later, pup is fine but the other swallowed the same tiny toy before I could get to it in time. I also have to keep a close eye on small rocks as my pups tend to want to eat small objects. My kids keep a closer watch on their toys now, incase you were wondering. I love my pups as I'm sure the person you replied to does too. If they didn't love or care for them they never would have posted in the first place!

Warning About Flea Medicine from the Dollar Store

Anonymous
June 27, 20170 found this helpful

Had some nasty flea problem that normal herbal remedies did not work for, so I picked up the three for kitties and one for my dog. I applied them last night to each and this morning woke to my kitties, Luna and Magick having what appeared to be a seizure. They were convulsing, eyes wide and they could stand up. I rushed them to 1 vet who sent me to another and they are both now in IVs and heaters and have not started moving . I come home to find my other cat who had no reactions earlier shaking and the same symptoms. It is now 5pm and Apollo, the dog(7 month old puppy) is lethargic and running a fever. This stuff is horrible!!!

Value of a Crown Porcelain Doll

June 27, 20170 found this helpful

Crowne company mass produces dolls of all styles and generally most are not expensive new and rarely sell for very much at auction sites. Dolls are also difficult to ship as they break easily and insurance will not always pay because dolls may not have been properly packaged.

Many sellers who list dolls start at a high price and lower it over time as dolls are very slow sellers even at sometimes almost give away prices (even sell for 99 Cents) but most dolls like this sell for $10 - 20 dollars - when they sell.

If you are wanting to sell I would suggest trying your local Craigslist as there would be no shipping and you can set your price and change it if/when you want to. Good photographs are usually necessary.

Here is a doll like yours presently listed on eBay (6/2017) and the price is high. They may surprise everyone and sell it - who knows??

http://www.ebay  oWQAAOSwfVpYp2YL

Here is a link to Crowne dolls recently sold on eBay with prices someone actually paid for these dolls.

An easy online search for "porcelain doll values" will produce many answers. Keep in mind that just because a doll may be fancy, old, inherited, etc., it most probably has little value as most are mass produced in the thousands and very often include a fake certification, the rather misleading term limited edition etc., in their names. A doll's condition is extremely important in considering value-the best doll prices are paid for dolls literally never removed from their boxes. You can find prices for some dolls on EBay and try online for further research. This site is a good place to start:

Cooking Oil Without Soy

June 27, 20170 found this helpful

Note that Soybean oil is preferred for high heat cooking due to its high smoke point and flash (fire) point. The smoke point is when an oil begins to break down, after which it tends to give food an unpleasant taste. There are soybean oils that are highly refined so that the regulatory agencies have deemed it not necessary to be listed as an allergen since the refining processes serves to eliminate virtually all soy protein, and thus, the allergens, from the oil.

Olive oil is rarely used for cooking but is mostly used for sauces and salad dressings. Some light olive oils (not virgin) may be used for sautéing; however, with low smoke and flash points, olive oil is not recommended for frying or any high heat cooking. In addition, deep frying with olive oil does not make foods healthier than frying with other oils since, at high heats it breaks down and loses its nutritional value.

Note also that breast cancer and thyroid cancer research shows that soybean oil is safe to eat, even for women who have been treated for hormone positive breast cancer.

Dyeing Polyester/Rayon Fabric a Lighter Color

June 27, 20170 found this helpful

Bleach will ruin almost any clothing with even a small amount of polyester so please - put the bleach away.

Rit has a color remover but states polyester may not have good results.

There does not seem to be a really,really safe way to dye or redye polyester material. Please check out some of these links before attempting anything like this with your garment unless you plan to be satisfied if it finishes badly. Also, doing anything with polyester requires very hot water and washing machine cannot be used.

The washer does not get hot enough for the poly dye. The dye only becomes activated with boiling temperature. It sometimes looks good after the washer, but usually the dye rubs off on legs arms and furniture.

Kids' Stepping Stones

June 27, 20170 found this helpful

I suppose you mean a child shoe print and not the print of his foot because cement burns even with a very short time contact with skin.

If someone wants to make the actual footprint use a plastic food film wrap to protect the skin and wash the skin immediately with water. To protect yourself : use alcali resistant plastic gloves and not just latex gloves, do not breath the dust when pouring the cement out of the bag, wear glasses to protect your eyes, wash your hands and protect them with cream or aloe vera sap. Be extra careful, cement burn is a chemical burn, most of the time you will not notice anything at first it is just a red mark on your skin and it takes sometimes a few days to notice the burn but it is as dangerous as a burn by flames because the burning continues to progress deeper in your skin after the contact has stopped. Apart from the burns cement also contains allergisers like chromium salts that can induce dermatitis.
