RE: Health Issues After Quitting Smoking

By richard1 10/20/2014

Dear Mom of 2.
I feel your anxiety across the waves here in the UK. What I have to say may be of little comfort. I quit 7 months ago and still have the symptom's you describe. They seem to come and go as they please. Lung pain, upper back pain, flu, throat tightening etc. This week I have started with a cough . Last week I had really bad anxiety .In fact my muscles were so tense I have actually torn a muscle in my shoulder. I used to smoke 20 cigarette's a day for around 30 years. I have a friend who quit at the same time as me , he was so ill he had to start again! Another friend quit 3 months ago without a single symptom. I am told by a work colleague that when his wife quit she was like it for a year. The powers that be don't tell us about this do they that's what makes it so scary. Keep it up though and hope this is a little bit of a helping hand across the water. You are not alone,

I have just read a news that scientists are trying to use cig.ash for seprating arsenic (poison) from water, but it would be very costly method, so they may use aluminium with cig.ash to lower the cleaning cost.
Another uses of cig ash is use in mobile batteries and concrete but its in research process.

RE: Twisting a Bamboo Stem

By mirador 10/19/2014

You can't just "twist" a straight bamboo stem. It's not like hair! :-) The curls in bamboo stems were grown that way. The part of the stem that is already straight will always stay straight.

It's possible to grow a curly plant yourself, but it will take many months to get a curl, and during that time it must remain covered by a box with one small hole that lets light in, which the plant will bend and grow towards and make the stem curve. Not the best way to enjoy your plant!

There are instructions online for how to make bamboo curly, but if you really want one it would be a lot faster and easier to buy one that was already grown that way by professionals.

And just a little trivia, these curly (or straight) plants being sold as "lucky bamboo" aren't really bamboo at all - they're not even related to bamboo! They're called dracaena, and are actually in the lily family!

RE: Sharing Living Expenses With Boyfriend

By mrpurrfect 10/19/2014

While reading your entry, it totally gave me the creeps with all the red flags. I fully agree with redhatterb, and add my own opinion.

First, he doesn't want you to work. That leaves you without "your own" money leaving you totally dependent on him. Not a good position to be in. If you ever decide to leave, lack of money can make it more difficult, and delay the decision. Don't put yourself in the position to be beholden to him.

Second, it sounds like you've already moved to his city. That's isolating you. Another tactic of abusers. (Not saying he is one, but be wary.)

He's already flip-flopped on his stance of how he wants you to contribute. It probably will likely to happen again and again. Get a formal agreement to help avoid potential problems. If he balks, see that as another "red flag."

Also, the fact that you put the question out asking for total strangers' opinions tells me that you, yourself, have doubts about this arrangement. Please be cautious. Go on the internet-- NOT at home (use the library, friend's, etc.)--and familiarize yourself with the signs of abuse: domestic and financial.

RE: Reducing the Cost of Feeding a Family

By femdyk 10/19/2014

I have been thinking about holding a workshop on "How to make your SNAP benefits last a whole month." Checking your receipt, knowing WHEN to shop, choosing store brands over named brands, are all good tips. Maybe knowing how to work the corporate game is the most important thing.

One important way to limit the cost of snacks is to put some in a bowl, not eat out of the bag.

I wish we'd get over using the word "cheap" and use "inexpensive" instead. Good, healthful food is like money in the bank! Feed your family well and you will remain well. Cut corners on anything but food and education.

When feeding baby mammals you have to stimulate them to defecate and urinate! I use a washcloth with warm water, then very gently rub the areas. Generally, the baby will "go" when you start massaging these areas. The moms' lick them to stimulate them to evacuate! Good Luck! Aren't you glad I told you about the washcloth?

RE: Free Cell Service with Q Link Wireless

By melissasue1968 10/18/2014

This is an awesome program. I have one, it is a nice Samsung flip phone. I use it for emergencies mostly. You can only have one lifeline phone per household. The minutes roll over if you don't use them all. You can use it for calls or texts. My particular phone is internet capable, but you would have to pay extra to use that, if you can at all on this program. If you use all your minutes, you can purchase more dirt cheap.

The phone has to be used at least once a month to keep your service active, but they send you reminders to use it. You get a weekly minutes available message via email. I'm not sure if they would text it to you or not, if you don't have internet.
It has been a life saver many times for me and my children. There are no drawbacks to this program.

RE: Health Issues After Quitting Smoking

By victor.roiter 10/18/2014

I would like to share my experience with the crazy decision of quitting smoking. I started smoking at the age of 13 and I am 44 now. I smokes 1-2 packs a day, I worked out, I swam, and never complained of anything. I would see a doctor every 5 years.

Well its been 5 months now that I have not touched a cig and I feel like crap. I have no energy ( there goes the gym) I'm dizzy, I had extreme lung pain and burning, I had shortness of breath and a lump feeling in my throat. I ended up in the E.R. 3 times and was finally admitted. I felt like a lab rat. CAT scan, XRAYS, blood tests, stress test, upper GI study and something else that I cannot remember the name at the moment. All tests came back negative thank god. The only thing they found is severe acid reflux. I'm actually losing weight, I have no strength and I cannot concentrate.

My doctor says I am going crazy and wants to put me on xanax. So I went from weighing 239lbs 9% body fat to 200 lbs 14% body fat with acid reflux. I will not smoke again, but I have to say this is terrible. I wish I knew the time frame when do we start to feel better.

RE: Receiving Social Security Survivor's Benefits

By cybergrannie 10/18/2014

The SS office should have given you the answer to this question when you applied but maybe the answer was not thorough enough.

The basic answer is for anyone to be eligible to receive SS benefits they must have paid money into SS over a certain period of time and completed a minimum number of what the SS calls "quarters".
If the original person did not have enough "quarters" paid in then they could not have drawn benefits and neither can anyone else draw benefits from their account. Anyone can request information about their own eligibility from the SS office.

You can obtain a booklet explaining this from your SS office or call their office and request it. They will mail it to you or you can search for SS information on the Internet and either read it on line or print out a copy. "Quarters" is explained in this booklet also.

This question also points out the problem people have who are self-employed and do not complete IRS forms and pay their SS taxes every year. They may not be eligible for SS benefits later in life unless they also work where they do pay SS taxes.

So, I must first say that in the South, the term "skunk weed" isn't always used to name a type of marijuana. There is a plant that stinks, and we call it skunk weed, but it isn't for smoking. I honestly don't know what it actually is, but maybe you should try going outside and observing your plants, anyway, just to eliminate them as potential suspects.

RE: Thrifty Advice for Teen Starting Out on Own

By borzoib 10/17/2014

Good subject.
When I had my first job I didn't make much but my father took my salary of $200.00 for the month and invested it. He gave me a paper instead of my salary and I was angry. I wanted to buy clothes. Now I am a senior and the $200.00 he invested in the stock market really amounted to a large amount.

Thinking about it now I realize I could of blown the $200.00 on clothes but look what I have now from this investment.
My advise is really very important, The earlier you invest the better. This is not a joke. Investing later in life does not get you what you could of done if investing at a younger age. That is the secret. Even though you want things now, please think of the future. This trick could really mean something to all young people.
I am now wise regarding this. Take my advise.

First, test a small area of a page in each book to make sure that the soda can be easily brushed away without ruining the look of the books pages.

Hi, I once thought I had to throw away a basket because there were little mold spots on it from constant exposure to humidity. Unfortunately, I did toss the basket.

Bleach seems to kill mold on walls, so I would try soaking your basket in a medium to strong solution of bleach and water, as if you were doing laundry. Let it soak for at least 10 minutes and wipe it down with a cloth or paper towel to make sure the mold is gone. Then rinse and air dry.

I wish I had thought of this earlier. Hope it works for you!

RE: Picking a Good Music Teacher

By helen.mckinney.522 10/17/2014

I have taught piano full time since 1998 and am certified to teach several different methods. When selecting a music teacher, look for someone who is positive and enthusiastic about music and enjoys working with children. You want someone who will inspire and motivate your child. Avoid teachers who fuss at and criticize their students unless you want your child to hate music!

Find a teacher your child really likes! A good personality fit can make all the difference! Also remember that different students have different learning styles and one method may not be right for every student. A good teacher will discover how your child learns best and modify the instruction to suit your child's unique needs and interests.

Classical training is wonderful, but students should also be able to learn songs they really like and want to learn to play. I allow my students to pick a "fun" song to work on along with the standard classical repertoire to keep them motivated.

A good teacher will incorporate ear training, technique, music theory, note reading and music appreciation at developmentally appropriate levels in their instruction and will expose students to a wide variety of musical styles. I suggest you visit and talk to different teachers and ask if you can observe some lessons before making your choice.

When observing lessons, notice how the teacher interacts with the students. Do they like him or her? Are instructions clear? Do the students play well? Are assignments and practice objectives written down at each lesson? These are some of the things you should take into consideration when making your selection.

RE: 13th Birthday Party Ideas

By ericalou 10/16/2014

My niece also has a birthday in December, on the 22nd. She always has a christmas themed party which lots of her friends go to it, is nomally held at her house where all the girls have fun and do there nails and makeup etc. and go out for a meal. This could also turn into a sleepover as well.

Don't worry if her friends can't turn up on her exact birthday she can always have a nice party early or maybe even after christmas what ever is better and easier for you really.

RE: Potty Trained Dog Started Peeing Indoors

By MartyD 10/16/2014

I have heard that dogs do this to "stake a claim". Maybe the dog thinks the yorkie friend won't be coming back she needs to reclaim the territory.

RE: Finding Financial Help to Replace Windows

By cybergrannie 10/16/2014

Windows are expensive to replace so you may not be able find someone to donate this type of material or the amount of work it takes to do the job.

You can search the Internet (Google - how to cover windows for winter or something similar). You will find all kinds of inexpensive ideas. Many people are in your situation and have to look for ideas they can do for themselves.

It is good that you are starting early so you will be able to try several solutions before the cold weather arrives.

The rubbing alcohol did the trick. Years of dust, grime, even hair wiped right away. Thanks for the tip.

These are so cute! Love this idea! Got me to thinking something similar for Christmas--bright Christmas fabric on a loop, similar to an ornament. Getting started on this today!

RE: What Breed Is My Dog?

By frugalsunnie 10/16/2014

I raised AKC Boxers in the US 40+ years before returning to live permanently in the UK, and my cousin raised American Staffordshire Terriers (aka pit bull or Staffie) - to my experienced eye your gorgeous little pup looks to be a mix of Boxer and Staffie.

Best person to consult, though, would be a canine vet with experience in the two breeds (yes, they do specialise nowadays).

Either way- full or mixed, to keep peace in your neighbourhood - be sure to consult the vet AND your local authorities regarding any legislation on the two breeds. Many locales have enacted legislation and you'll have legal obligations to meet - if the breeds aren't banned altogether there may insurance, fence, and lead laws governing how you keep and maintain the dog.

Sounds like that would be a good way to contaminate your mascara wand.

I remember having measles 60 odd years ago and being allowed to play with Mum's rag-bag. No idea what I did with the pieces but it was great fun! Don't suppose anyone has rag-bags now, does anyone still patch?

RE: 12 Year Old Sleepover?

By Jordan.Mechanzie 10/16/2014

Hmm... It sounds to me like your daughter has heard some mention about sex at school and wants to try it. So my answer would be positively NO! I have a friend whose daughter became a mother at 14 because of swimming at school in the pool with a boy. I used to be a teacher and trust me, kids no more about sex then we think and school is the perfect place for them to learn about it...

RE: Can You Cross Breed a Dachshund with a Pit Bull?

By sverhulst 10/15/2014

I got cupcake from a rescue, I have had her 2.5 years, shes the best dog ever. I am against breeding for profit when so many dogs dont have homes. If you are able to find one Id snatch it right away, they are so rare and everyone that sees her thinks shes the cutest.

RE: What Breed is My Puppy?

By Lizzyanny 10/15/2014

I don't see dachshund at all. Perhaps spaniel, or dalmation because of the ears. Pointers also have ears like that. Kinda a tough call.

RE: Dusting a Cake With Powdered Sugar

By Abigail A. 10/15/2014

In my experience it will melt and be sticky.
Here's an idea, though- If you put a paper doily on the cakes before you dust them and remove it afterward (carefully) it will make a doily pattern on the cake.

RE: Displaying Deviled Eggs

By WIsgal 10/15/2014

That sure is a great idea. A good way to get several eggs on plate without them slipping all over. The "deviled egg plates" never hold very many eggs. Thanks for the tip.
