RE: Securing Stitches with Handy Sewing Machine

By frugalsunnie 04/21/2014

With one of these machines the best and simplest way to secure beginning and ending stitches is to knot.

First, run a few beginning stitches then reach behind the needle, take the bobbin and upper thread tails hanging from the beginning and tie two overhand knots.

When finished stitching, do the same thing at the end - simply tie two overhand knots.

Be sure not to pull the knots so tightly the fabric develops a pucker (will look like the beginning of a gather). You want to pull the knots tight enough that the knots rest right at the edge of the fabric, only.

RE: Statute of Limitations on Outstanding Debts

By susanmajp 04/21/2014

There is a law like this, I'm not sure how many years have to pass, but you have some things wrong. The debt has to be from a bank, credit card, store payment, etc--not a personal money loan from another individual. if the loan was spoken about and you promised payment, you will still be responsible for payment. For example, if the day before the time limit was to expire, and the credit card company called you, and you said that you'd mail in a payment or even try to make a payment sometime, then the time limit restarts from the time of that conversation--it is a revolving time-limit. And the companies do record the conversation, so you can't get away with lying. If this is a personal loan from a friend or relative, these laws don't necessarily apply, but that person has options too: they can take you to small claim court and attach you wages, disability check, or any future income you may get--even years later, they can sue you if the amount if high enough and take your property, they can report the loan to the IRS as income given to you which you failed to claim and pay taxes on--do you really want to owe the IRS back money with interest? The IRS can freeze all your accounts and lock you out of your own home. Or, you can be a responsible person and pay the money you owe.

RE: Receiving Social Security Survivor Benefits

By susanmajp 04/21/2014

Benefits usually end when a child turns 18 or finishes high school. You can go on Social Security's website for answers to many questions. Since you are essentially 17 and a junior, you don't have much time or many monthly payments left; Personally, I'd visit my closest office and talk to someone face-to-face. Since you are still in high school, I'd take as many AP classes as possible at your high school--think free college credit. You can also clep out of many college courses, for the cost of a test fee, for full college credit--freshman health, English I, Algebra I, etc. You can buy the actual book used at the college bookstore, study on your own, and sign up for the clep test at the college. No matter what SS says, I'd stay in high school and get credit for as many college courses as possible, in any way possible. Also, apply for as many scholarships as you can find.

RE: When Should the Child of a Deaf Parent Begin Learning Sign Language?

RE: Replacing Half of the Roof on a House

By louel53 04/20/2014

Sometimes only one half of the roof is in terrible shape. You might solve most of your problems by doing the worst half of the roof. Anyway, I think that half of the roof would be better than doing nothing. You should consult someone who does roof repair in your area. It maybe that there are less expensive products that you can use. Best to get as much done now as you can, before the whole interior of the house is ruined.

RE: Terra Cotta Lighthouse

By victoria.joerendt 04/20/2014

This is simple. You take two very large terra cotta planters, or as many planters as you want, just one size smaller then the next. Turn upside down and put larger one on bottom and cement the next smaller one on top of larger one, top side down, until the size you want it. You let cement dry and then paint them how you want and after paints dry you can use a weather sealant to protect it. Then add a small light house on top and cement in place or use some kind of fasteners to hold in place.

RE: Use Scrubbing Bubbles for Hard Water Spots

By lhdieffenbach 04/19/2014

Awesome! Two years of sprinkler overspray on this one exterior window and vinegar, my usual favorite for hard water deposits, only helped a little, maybe 5-10% for each spray and scrub. Its hard to let it soak, like I usually do, when most of it runs off. We gave up quickly.

So we found this site and tried the Scrubbing Bubbles, which I had on hand because I like them for bathroom cleaning, and they worked really well! First pass we wiped it around with paper towels fairly soon after spraying and was not sure it helped. Cleaned the window again with glass plus and it was about 50% better!

Second pass we sprayed it on heavily and let it sit about 3-5 minutes, then wiped/scrubbed it around with paper towels and then cleaned with paper towels and the Glass Plus. Crystal Clean! I never would have thought of it but It really worked! Thank you!

That is a tough one. The only thing I can think of is that she sleeps in a different position in that bed. With a disc problem you can sometimes have a pinched nerve that affects the bladder or bowels. My 1st thought was diabetes because of her age, but sounds like you had all the obvious things checked out. My other thought was does she sleep in this bed after she has tanked up on water. Might be an idea to watch her eating and drinking habits for a few days. Good luck!

I have had great success using a power washer on my large area rugs. I lay it out on the driveway where I proceed with the power wash. To speed up the drying process, roll the carpet from end to end. Then stand it up on it's end. This will drain the water out quicker and will make it easier to move in a shorter period of time.

RE: Slugs In My Bedroom Carpet

By louel53 04/19/2014

Sandi, a bin is a garbage can, although I surely don't know why there would be beets in it. I suppose it could be some sort of storage place as well, but I doubt it. Anyway, to answer the question regarding slugs, I think a thorough cleaning of the bin and the surrounding area - likely the whole bedroom, would be in order. And are these slugs - which are grey slimy creatures, like snails without a shell, or are they perhaps, maggots, which are small and white, fly larva, that feed on decaying matter, especially decaying meat. I have never heard of slugs in a house, but maggots can be anywhere. But whatever they truly are, clean the room and the bin using lots of soap and hot water!

Get dressed up with a bunch of your friends and go out to an expensive dinner, have a hang out session at your house. Just decorate everything super cute, rent out a small little house and have your party there with decorations, music, food, and a photo booth.

There's so many things you can do. 16th birthday parties don't have to be a massive thing. Get your friends together and celebrate your birthday doing what you want to do. The party isn't what makes you have a great birthday, it's the people you choose to be around that makes all the difference.

RE: Selling a Doll Collection

By cybergrannie 04/18/2014

Wow! That is a lot of dolls!
There are several factors to consider; such as the maker and condition and if any are still in boxes. You would have to do a lot of research and as stated before; get more than one opinion.

Dolls are very plentiful on the Internet so it is difficult to receive a "good" price, even for valuable dolls and "regular" dolls sell for only a few dollars.

You may be "lucky" and find someone who wants this many dolls. I personally would estimate that - if sold as a lot - you would only receive about .25 to 50 cents per doll. This may sound low but I have a lot of dolls and do not kid myself as to their "true" value.

Some dolls purchased 20-30 years ago - at prices well above 100.00 are now worth 15-20 dollars. Of course there are always exceptions.

Good luck and I hope you make a lot of money!

I would go with white. This color combination has enough dark and light colors, and white will help show the light through the windows. You can also go with this idea. I like going to walmart and getting 5' wide plastic sheeting. You can get it from clear to floral, and you cannot see through it. Cut it the size of the windows, and gently hot glue it to the corners and the sides, or tape it to the frame. You have light, privacy and can set things in the window sills.

RE: Selling a Doll Collection

Hello neighbor I just want to give you a heads up, my father had a train collection and we went to collectors asking what they were worth if we wanted to sell them and they were offering us rock bottom prices even under bidding and taking advantage of an innocent persons ignorance on the subject.

A friend suggested we ask collectors their value so we could insure them and we actually got prices 3 and 4 times more than what we were told when inquiring on selling prices. Trust no one unless u get the real value thru the "insurance" metaphor and then you will know the asking price and the true value of your dolls.

Then we offered them bulk on craigslist and accepted a generous offer from someone who would continue to treasure them. Be wise friend, try my method so no one rips u off, any stranger would! God bless and good luck. Gia in massapequa park, ny

Mixed with Husky or Malamute? That would be my guess.

Thanks for posting a picture of Happy, she looks like a beautiful dog!

I can't tell you what breed he is, but he sure is cute. How can people be so cruel to animals? Bless you for rescuing him.

You need to take your dog to the Vet. This may be a serious problem that cant be fixed with home remedies. Dont wait any longer to get her the help she needs.

I would think rice would be a good substitute for the feed corn, and easier to find.

Call your local Social Security Office and talk to them, they are the only ones that know the correct answer.

RE: Statute of Limitations on Outstanding Debts

By louel53 04/15/2014

After my Grandfather sold his farmland in the about 1968, he paid off a debt he had owed to the storekeeper of his town since the 1930's. I doubt if that debt was more than $100, and was likely less. He' d owed that money for 30 years, and the storekeeper had long since moved away and retired. It never occurred to my grandfather that he didn't have to pay the money he owed just because a lot of years had passed.

RE: Buying Feed Corn

Not much corn grown around Edmonton. You'd have better luck looking for wheat or flax, and I am sure they would work as well as corn. Feed corn is just the dried corn kernels off the cob, and as I said, we have very little of it up here in Canada. Do you have any friends or relatives who have a contact on a farm? Trust me, if you wanted a little bag of wheat or flax to keep your feet cool, any farmer would give that to you. Alternatively, you could buy a couple of flax or wheat bags, which I am sure are available at farmers' markets or from home crafters. Usually you heat them up in the microwave so that you have a heating pad, but there is no reason you couldn't put them in your freezer. Less messy, in my opinion.

I think its 15 years, but not really sure. Should be very easy to find in a google search.

Hello, Go to Youtube. There are literally tons of 'how to' videos. Enter your problem in the search box and you will have many to select from. I've saved quite a bit of money doing this.

Your dog looks a lot like a Rottweiler. Maybe a mix, but that is the prevailing breed.
