Thank you. I didn't realize the sofa was made by them:)
Mena was made by Ashley Furniture. Contact their customer service. www.ashleyfurniture.com/
Regarding your above calculations, would you use 28 large or small marshmallows ?
You would just add a small amount of water to the baking soda, until it is the consistency you would like to use. I'd start with just a teaspoon at a time.
How do you make the paste?
Balloons are the WORST idea!!! They are extremely detrimental to the environment, animals etc. Find other ways to for celebrations, than balloons.
Kitchen Craft cookware is better construction and built to last. Customer service has been fantastic and I am ecstatic to ave made the investment. Quality over quantity.
No mention yet. I bought "Royal Prestige" by West Bend in 1974!
Cast iron.. multi coated with hiiiigh grade stainless steel.
Use daily. Had to have a handle replaced once, free.
Curious.. people saying here, water lined,
Aren't ALL West Bend cookware cast iron lined like my Royal Prestige?
Oh.. and my Royal Prestige are hard hard hard plastic/polymer handles (not rubber like many of you are saying, odd), and they go into the oven (thouuuuusands of times.. without a thought), and never a thought.
Maybe Royal Prestige had West Bend build a different handle for theirs?
All I know, is I've been using them for 45 years, and my daughter will get them when I die... or can't cook.
That means they will be (75 years old) when she gets them and looking and working and cooking fabulously still.
CURIOUS if some peeps will answer the HANDLE COMPOSITION QUESTION/DIFFERENCE (ie: does anyone else have Royal Prestige by West Bend??
I would contact Social Security directly to find the correct answer to this. It looks like people have experienced it differently.
I have the same question ( which was Not fully answered). If HS graduation is May 17th will the Last payment arrive the 4th Wednesday in May or in June after my 18 yo graduates next month?
People have been asking Myrna but she hasn't responded recently. I don't think she is still active on the site, unfortunately.
My husband is needing rotator cuff surgery
I dont sew but I think your idea here is awesome. The shirts I saw on line are very expensive
Do you sell your shirts
I'm pretty sure it is just the regular size condensed cream of mushroom soup (10 1/2 oz.) Then you use the empty can to measure out the milk or cream.
Do let us know how it turns out.
what size of can for soup, and milk/cream?
Prickly Sow-thistle. It also is available as smooth Sow-thistle (an Irish plant) This is EDIBLE and can be used for humans and as green foraging plants for ducks! They LOVE the leaves and eat it to the ground!
This is DEFINITELY SOW THISTLE!
Thanks so much for identifying it! I have been looking for this plant but thought it was called "Texas Dandelion" as that is what we bought the seeds as over 10 years ago and we need some new seeds. NOW I know what I am looking for! These are EDIBLE!!! We use them for our Muscovy Ducks!!
You can find sellers of the seeds on Amazon, Ebay and Etsy.
It appears Geppeddo made more than one prince charming - probably used the same mold but maybe several years apart.
Your doll is different from the ones for sale so it is possible he is a little more valuable but dolls are very, very slow sellers as the market is flooded and the buyers are few.
Dolls are really out of fashion for the most part and it is truly a buyer's market so with thousands to choose from, sold prices are very low.
Very few collectors are buying any of the mass produced dolls.
You can keep checking eBay for your doll (list prices are just what a sellers would like to get for their doll and has nothing to do with value until it is sold) but you can place a watch on any doll you see so you will know if it sells.
Many doll sellers notoriously leave dolls listed for years and occasionally one will sell.
To find current market value you will have to find the exact same doll on the sold side of eBay and that may never happen.
If you wish to sell your doll, I would suggest listing him on Craigslist, USA4Sale, or any site where the doll can be picked up and no shipping involved as it is very difficult to safely ship a doll.
On one of these sites you could start your listing at $50-$80 and just lower the price if no one shows an interest.
Your doll looks more like a true prince charming than the other dolls I've seen so hopefully he will sell faster and for more money.
This one is asking $36. www.ebay.com/
Orange colored yolks!! baby chicks forming in the egg!! NO TASTE
These are not farm fresh eggs but no means!! How many years are eggs held before they are sold? How long can they freeze them before selling the eggs? Can not see buying these eggs ever again
I have always gave my dogs and puppies their shots and thank goodness everything has been fine. I do know their are certain shots some dogs shouldn't have. Like I only do a 5 way, these crazy 7 ways and 9 ways are too much. I'd rather take the chance on their shots then watch a dog die from Parvo
There is product on the market called mold control. It is excellent for removing and killing mold so that it does not return to the same area it was used to clean. This in turn helps kill the smell also. It is available at big box stores like Lowes and Home Depot.
Sounds yummy and easy
If you want to food and snack choices from the 1990s-2000 you might consider these options: Fruit snacks such as fruit rollups, Gushers and gummies, potato sticks in a can and Hostess Snowballs. Hot Pockets and pizza bagels would be good party food.
How fun!!! There are dozens of websites devoted to Friends theme parties!!
Here is one of them.
A fun game would be who know the lyrics to Phoebe's songs. Winner could get a matched pair of coffee mugs!
Have fun!! Blessings!! Such a fun theme!!
You can have a game to see how well they know you. Ask questions like what color your room is or what is your favorite flavor of ice cream. The one who gets the most right gets a prize.
Your heartleaf philodendron can do well in medium light, indirect light is best. Be careful not to overwater this plant. Leaves turning yellow is a sign of overwatering. Fertilize the plant once a month in spring and summer and every other month in winter. This plant helps purify the air inside your home but can be toxic to pets.
This is a heart shaped philodendron. They like medium to bright light. Dont overwater or they rot. Water when the surface is dry

Sushi is one of my favorite food. Thanks for great share about that.
I have looked everywhere for dip it! Where did you find it. I live in New York.
I found these marks when the pots make contact with the surface. Np contact no marks. Previous comment about laying a tower in the sink is good advice. I have used Ajax or Comet cleaner sprinkle it on the marks and scrubbing with a scrubber vigorously.
It's not uncommon in my house. Maybe an Oklahoma thing idk because i experienced for the first time when I moved to Oklahoma and had the same reaction.. It's disgusting to wake up to huge worms all over the kitchen, living room, garage. I'm so sick of it!!
If your blades are clean and the mower has oil, you have an issue with the recoil starter.
These are interesting do you know their history? We don't see these where I am so I did a little research and see there is a demand in some places.... bigger cities than pgh, like NYC, Los Angeles and London.
In some circles pristine chairs,if authenticated, can sell in the 500 to 700 each.
Now refinishing may devalue them and existing conditions may devalue. This means you are best off to talk to a chair expert in your city who can first authenticate (unless you have the original bill of sale) and who can tell you which is the least of the devalue...as is or refinished.
Now if these are for you to love and keep, have fun and enjoy them!! They are a great find!!
There is not enough information here. We need to know the manufacturer of the chairs.
According to this article, the PTO clutch may be faulty. It cannot be repaired. It must be replaced. www.repairclinic.com/
Vinegar and water is recommended. Dont use anything with ammonia in it.
There are many dolls of this manufacturer on eBay. The most expensive doll is $35. m.ebay.com/
Put alerts on eBay and Etsy. Put want ads on Freecycle and Craigslist. Also check amazon.
My friend just had a fire. She called her insurance company. If you rented, call the Red Cross.
You could try Color Oops
You need a consistent temperature of 99.5. If you have another heat source it could work.
I dont think they make Alba anymore. I think this recipe is close. www.weightwatchers.com/
You can get replacement parts here. colemanpopupparts.com/
If you havent mixed with the developer it is safe to use. You dont have to make up the whole batch. The ratio of dye to developer is 1:1. I only mix what I need for each dye job.
They look like carpet beetles. Call an exterminator. In the meantime, vacuum often and throw the contents outside.
Yes Im sure that will happen. Joanie is perfectly fine, no behavior issues when shes alone. I feel so bad for Sammy, he gets put in a room more often than Id like, and a little bit less attention than before. But its for his own safety since he cant defend himself. I think sometimes shes trying to play with him and she doesnt understand he doesnt play anymore. Sometimes she gets rough out of jealousy.
They are pretty. Unfortunately, they decrease in value because so many of them were manufactured. It may be worth $10 or possibly $15.
I like alliteration
what about Print Brands,print concept, print partner,print base,print point,print base,print deal,please tell me which one is best?
i prefer just 5 or 6 letter name
You need a lawyer for this. There is a 5 year look back period, so you cannot transfer assets.
Most likely your answer is going to need a lawyer (perhaps the one who did the POA paperwork since he/she knows the situation). as you are dealing with needs that are outside the scope most lay people being able to help if your sister is not cooperating.
If that lawyer is no longer available or won't take the challenge, Google your town name and the phrase 'state senator' and see if someone from their office can help you with a reputable legal aide source (never Google legal aide as 99% of those seem to be scams.
If your mother is in a nursing home, some have social work teams that do that paperwork (to get the person on Medicaid) and perhaps if they approached your sister, she may cooperate with them...but if not, a lawyer is needed. I would think the first thing would be to get your mom out of that business and off of that loan and that is a legal transaction from my point of view.
Prayers for an easy solution. Post back so I know how it is going for you!
It will change in consistency if you do. It is only egg and oil. You can make it yourself in small amounts
One of the first lessons I learned in home ec many years ago was you can freeze mayo, but don't. It separates and gets icky.
Best (for us at least) just to buy the small jar and not worry about it since we use so little of it.
You have to be very careful what you put down a septic tank. I would not do it.
Call your local plumber and ask. I would think your husband is at least partially right on this...but I am not a plumber, so I suggest asking an expert.
They will want to know every ingredient you used as I find it so odd that antibacterial soaps are bad for septic systems, even if they are liquid...so I think it is more the make up of the items vs. that you will be using in a diluted form.
Post back so we can all learn! Thanks!
How about going to a park and having a softball birthday party. Being heroes, drinks and cake.
You could have a tie dye party and everyone could take a fun and funky shirt home as a favor and the fun memory of making it!!
If you don't know how to do tie dye, there are lots of videos on YouTube. It is a lot of fun and you don't need to spend a lot of money.
You will need white tee shirts, dye which you can often get at the dollar store or a place like Walmart or target, gum bands/rubber bands, buckets, a dye like Rit, and water.
Boys and girls can enjoy this activity. You can also play video games and watch movies (for those who may opt out of craft time).
Blessings!! Enjoy your upcoming party!!
Im thinking Jack Russell terrier because of his coloring.
Aww thank you so much! Yeah I had a guess about the terrier part but the other ones make sense too. Thanks!
Chico is too cute!! I see a little beagle in that body and tail!! Maybe a little Rat Terrier or Min Pin!! SO sweet!!! Wishing you amazing adventures!!
Thanis, I ran new wire to the clutch and Im up and running.
Sure sounds like a wiring problem.
Did you happen to check the wiring - from mower to clutch - when you installed a new clutch to blades (beginning to end)?
You might try starting after dark to see if you see a flash somewhere (might need a second person to help).
Was this the reason you replaced all those parts?
I think you should go back to the store where parts were purchased and ask someone in their maintenance department to help you.
Otherwise I would suggest you visit a farm supply store and see if someone there can help you.
I have sprayed shoe stretcher on my cowboy boots while wearing them and it damn sure worked for me , no problem at all
I have sprayed shoe stretcher on my cowboy boots while wearing them and it damn sure worked for me , no problem at all
i suggest doing an at home party with you and some friends or even making ur own escape room (homeade) at home as well
So cute! Thanks for sharing.
So cute! Thanks for sharing!
Last year I went to Menards and bought one for $75.00
for me works great.
Without an Id you may have trouble finding matching parts.
A lawn mower repair shop may be able to help you with parts.
Unbranded mowers in very used condition may be difficult to sell at any price.
You can check listing on eBay for similar mowers and place a watch on any that catch your eye and check sold listings to see what someone (somewhere) was willing to pay for one of these mowers.
Most sellers will have "local pick up only" which in actuality is about like selling on Craigslist as mowers are awkward and heavy and costly to ship.
eBay listing: place watch to see if it sells:
Here is a link to keep checking for actual value (sold) (but maybe not in your area):
ThriftyFun receives this question quite often:
definitely spay your females or the aggression in the males won't stop. I have several neutered males, and rescued a female. she came in to heat and caused two of my males to fight and it wasn't pretty. She is getting spayed! If you love your dogs you will do the same.
I always made this cake for Easter when my children were young. It was always a fun and yummy project for us to do together. Thanks for the memory! :-)
These look really good. Thanks for sharing.
Poison ivy and poison oak are some of the most hazardous plants as they can be dangerous just by touching them, dangerous to burn as breathing the fumes can cause severe lung problems (even from a distance), and will still be bad even if left to die and generally do not die easily.
Here is an excellent article with pictures:
Urushiol oil (poison oak or poison ivy) can remain active for several years, so handling dead leaves or vines can cause a reaction. In addition, oil transferred from the plant to other objects (such as pet fur, clothing, shoes) can cause the rash if it comes into contact with the skin.
Clothing, tools, and other objects that have been exposed to oil should be washed to prevent further transmission.
Immediate washing with soap and cold water or rubbing alcohol may help prevent a reaction. Hot water should not be used, as it causes one's pores to open up and admit the oils from the plant. During a reaction, Calamine lotion or diphenhydramine may help mitigate symptoms.
Hopefully your lilies are showing signs of opening for your Easter Sunday.
Sometimes lilies are sold that have not been given the "cold" treatment which forces the early blooms (I think the normal bloom time for Easter lilies is June-July) but most lilies found in stores at this time of year are either blooming or ready to bloom.
The only information that I found suggested this treatment (for potted lilies):
Easter lilies must remain moist; water them whenever the soil dries out in the top 1 inch. Must have good drainage (remove from foil pot covers or place holes in bottom and use saucer for catching excess water.
Display your plant in bright, but indirect sunlight, and protect it from drafts and heat sources.
Cool daytime temperatures in the 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit range will prolong the life of the blooms. The temperature can be even cooler at night.
I have several Calla lilies and the smaller blooms are nice in all colors.
It's so nice to see Catherine back helping all of us with identifying "unknown" plants.
oh that is so lovely! you are clever!xxxx
I feel your pain with all things electrical. I have a very, very old house and the first few years it needed so much in terms of electric, I had the guy on speed dial. The good news is once you get it fixed, it usually lasts for a long time. If your mom is over 55 ask for a senior discount! Some places give those (the bigger repair folks).
Hope it is an easy fix!!
We own our trailer but rent space in a park and the former manager had his electrician come check it out...but ive suspected all along its been the fuse...still do...but i would never attempt that kind of repair myself...electricity bites and it bites hard lol...I was just trying to see if I could save my mom some money if it was an easy fix...thank you
I totally agree w u that I am not smart enough to do this myself...I was just hoping that it might have been an easy quick fix that wasnt too expensive...lol...I didnt think it would be but ive always believed in hope....lol
Bread is dangerous for the ducks to eat...do not feed them bread.
There are some YouTube videos on repairing and troubleshooting this machine. You can put the name and model number in the YouTube search and watch to see if any help.
Also, Jess confirmed recently that this is a current site with typewriter repair shops from around the world.
Maybe one of those folks can help! It can't hurt to call and ask!
Post back what you figure out! My hubby just dug out my old typewriter and now that I know this list is good, I am going to see if I can get my old SC fixed!! I love the sound of a typewriter in the morning :)
Thank you Judy! The hammer looks pretty straight to me but I'll check to see if I installed the ribbon correctly.
I have tried everything, and it's still not working. So frustrated!
While spaying is critical (to me at least since dachshunds--which I have--that don't get spayed have a high risk for cancers) bladder changes are frequently a medical issue--bladder infection, urinary tract infection, kidney infection. My first stop would be the vet. If this is the case, the antibiotics usually work quickly.
If the pup gets a clean bill of health, talk to the vet as the least frequent cause is anxiety or stress and there are a lot of good things that can be done to reduce that.
The other thing is if it happens at night, pick up the water bowl around dinner time and replace it first thing in the morning.
Hope it is an easy solution for you! Prayers for the pup!
The squirrels and I were doing just fine until they decided to invade my garage door by chewing the paint off. Nuts to them...
Our neighborhood Salvation Army does not accept crt tv's.
I've really not looked into this but it could be that it is showing that it is coming from you because your own phone identifies that number as yours. If it is a land line, I would be concerned.
I think the carriers need to get on the ball. It shouldn't be too hard to block incoming calls that show your own number in caller ID. What really bothers me is that my name was associated with my number. I know of no public records where my name is connected to my phone number. I can only guess that the scammers have somehow breached my online privacy. This is scary. I wonder what else they know.
Thanks for providing that informational link, it works now. I think that extension needed actual coding to work with our system.
I have received calls from myself before. I never pick them up. I also get all sorts of calls that start the same as my number and look like they are in the local area. I don't pick these up anymore either. This has resulted in me missing calls from my sons who borrowed a friend's phone to ask for a ride occasionally. It's frustrating but it's a fact of modern life, like spam in your inbox. I add numbers to the National Do Not Call list but you can hardly do that to your own number.
so awhile back I asked for help about what weatherization program did to me in terre haute Indiana and so far no one don't wanna help me its like how dare I question anyone so does anyone have any idea's plzz help thanks
Think about it, you gave a healthy pup a shot containing a virus and then they got the virus. I am seeing this daily now. Parvo orginally comes from cat poop. I doubt your pup ate cat poop or needed to. Today, people just give it to their furbabies willingly because vets scare the hell out of them if they don't. Once it is in that dog, it continues shedding the virus and yes, other dogs can be at risk. Where ever that pup poops, is infected for years. In my 50 years of having dogs, I have never given a pup a parvo shot and never had parvo because when my babies are little, they are not social with others. No different than having an infant. Lately, I am seeing rescue pups DX with parvo daily and they all have one thing in common, they started getting parvo shots... Insanity.
My experience regarding Static window film is that it quickly loses its "stick". I followed placing instructions to the letter but after one day various bits around the edges were lifting off the glass. Tried placing procedure several time again to no avail. I resorted, therefore, to sticking the edges back down with Sellotape. Have 100% success everytime with the adhesive versions
