Collecting Back Child Support if Parent is Deceased

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

I do not believe anyone on this site would think you deserved any negative responses.
Your case is too complicated for anyone on this site to offer any suggestions other than to state that you will have to have legal help to receive any money for the time you did receive support.
You should seek legal aid as soon as possible so the attorney can put in a claim against any money received from the sale of the houses or any other areas where there may be money in the father's estates.

If you cannot afford an attorney then you should contact the Family Services/Legal Aid office in your city. They will help you get free or low cost legal services.
This should be done quickly because once the money is allotted you may not be able to place a claim.
Do not worry about what paperwork you need as the attorney will explain what they have to have for your case.

Though I'm not a lawyer I think you have grounds to receive benefits from the estate due to costs incurred in the upkeep of these poor children, especially considering the special medical costs.

As far as it being a moral issue, sure. You are entitled to feel entitled to receive some compensation for raising neglected children who are not yours. The important thing is that a judge or lawyer feels that way too so that you may receive compensation.

You should seek council from a lawyer. You may be able to sue for the money from the sales of the home. This is hard to say and only a lawyer will be able to file the paperwork for you and give you the correct advise that you need to be paid back for the money you've spent over the years.

Getting Rid of Tiny Biting Bugs

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

especially if you were in Latin America, there is a thing known as a Sand Flea proper and it causes the symptoms you describe.

There is also the 'no see ums' which are just midges

all the solutions say to prevent reinfestation with DEET next time you're at the beach. As well use Caladryl lotion to treat the itches, and if it does not get better, you may need Cortisone and even antibiotics from your doctor.

I read that these bugs die when it's below 40 degrees so if you have the ability to maybe freeze your bedding, clothing, and carpets, that might do something

Normally on the outside of home they have a drain that has a cap on it that can be opened and cleared out. A lot of time just using your garden hose down this pipe will losen the clog and shove it down the drain. If you have put rice in your sink this will clog it up right away. I have unclogged my mom's sink on several occassions by just going to the outside of the home and opening up this pipe. Just keep in mind when you put the hose down there will be a lot of food and crap coming out of that pipe so stand back it really stinks.

First off, does the sink itself drain at all? If not or is slow to drain, that points to a clog in the drain elbow trap below the sink, that will have to be cleaned out. The trap is easy enough to clean. Put a wide and deep baking pan under the plumbing elbow. Unscrew the washer around the elbow and dump the water into the pan. If you can see the clog itself, use something to push the clog out of the elbow. Put the elbow back into place and re-tighten the washer. That should fix the problem. If the sink drains fine but the disposal still isn't draining, then try throwing several ice cubes into the disposal grinding area and turn it on. If that doesn't help, then you'll need to TURN OFF THE BREAKER OR TAKE OUT THE FUSE for the disposal, FROM THE MAIN ELECTRIC PANEL, then double check to make sure it's off by throwing the disposal switch on. If sure the power to disposal is off, fold back the rubber flange in the sink for the disposal then look down inside with a flashlight to see if you can identify any clog. If you see an obvious blockage, carefully use tongs OR your hand if it fits, to remove the blockage. If you or a handy friend can't DIY, I think your only hope for a fix IS a plumber...sorry. Good luck!!

Macaroni Casserole Recipes

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

Here's how I do a simple mac and cheese:

1 box elbow macaroni
.5 lb cheddar cheese
1 cup half and half
4 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp flour
1/2 lb some other kind of cheese, grated
vegetables and spices to suit

You cook pasta as usual and set it aside after draining

In a separate pan you put butter then add flour and then half and half and stir till they become thick, at which point you reduce heat. Then you add all the Cheddar and make it so that it is liquid

Add all to a greased baking sheet, then on top of that add a layer of the remaining cheese and whatever veg you wanted to put in there.

14th Birthday Party Ideas

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

It really depends on what you and your friends are into. For instance:

1) are any of you into cooking or food? If so, you could plan a 4 course meal that y'all make yourselves. And at the end of the cooking, of course, you eat it
Here's a resource www.thekitchenmccabe.com/.../

2) are you into fashion or makeup? If so, you could have a makeover session. Find a grownup (hopefully someone with actual talents in the area) to do your makeup and hair

3) do you like culture? You could opt to spend the afternoon at a museum or theater in lieu of having a party at home

This will depend on where you are holding your party. If you are on a very tight budget and don't have a lot to spend one good idea is to host the party in your own home. Everyone needs to eat and a good way to have fun and be grown up is to prepare your own food. Ahead of time make cupcakes for everyone. Now cook some imini pizza together and each person gets to make their own. After eating you cannow decorate cupcakses and have fun judging the best one. After this you can do manicures or even have a dance party.

I am seeing different ones on Ebay going for $50 to $150

The issue is, are people actually buying? The reality of ebay today is it is an oversaturated market, and the only thing that seems to move anymore is electronics.

But at least people are asking that much for them, which is a lot better than can be said for many other such dolls on the market.

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

Either hold the tail of the thread till you actually get a couple stitches into the seam, OR pull a longer thread tail out of the upper thread only. My machine does the same thing if I don't do one of those two steps. The upper thread gets pulled backwards--out of the needle--as the upper thread tension takes up the excess thread. So, pull more out or hold onto a shorter tail. The bobbin thread should be fine without doing anything special. Good luck and happy sewing!!!

Normally you should have a long trail of thread at the back of your needle when you start to sew. If you do and the thread keep coming out you should change your needle and make sure it is installed correctly.

Removing a Bad Odor in a Handmade China Cabinet

In a lot of cases you can mix 1/2 vinegar with 1/2 water and start to wash the wood in the cabinet. When it is still a bit wet sprinkle some baking soda on this and rub it in really good. Allow this to sit to absorb the order in the cabinet. You can wipe out the remains of the baking soda with a clean cloth.

Selling Vintage CorningWare

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

The most profitable thing you can do with these is to travel back in time to 2005, back to the time when a person actually could make money off selling high quality items on eBay before the market was oversaturated.

I'm joking of course.

These are great dishes and SOMEBODY wants them. Sure, someone can find one at Goodwill for a small amount but that's a crapshoot. Someone can also get them on Ebay but pay $10 shipping and run all sorts of risks

The best thing to do is simply advertise on Craigslist or join facebook buy sell trade groups in the community and wait for whoever wants them. $10 to $20 a piece is what I would start with.

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

Hi! Great Corning pieces. Classics. They are easy to sell on eBay, if you want to start small, they are good and consistent sellers at 5-25 dollars, each.

Be sure to wrap these very carefully with bubble wrap, then in box 1, put that box in a bigger box with at least 2 inches all around. In that space be sure to use extra bubble wrap or foam peanuts. Double boxing like this is the best way to prevent damage in transit.

Weigh the box and put the measurements in eBay so the shipping is accurate. This is very important to do. Never let eBay calculate shipping for you. It is always wrong.

Please be aware there are false click bait stories on the internet saying these pieces are worth thousands of dollars. That is totally false. The sold auctions that show these high values are either money laundering or schill bidding by the click bait writers. Please don't get mixed up in those lies and fake ads.

The true sold values are those under $25. I feel terrible if this is not what you wanted to hear.

Like I said, if you have never sold on eBay before, it is good to start with small sales like with these items to get experience and feedbacks. Post back how it goes.

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

You can sell on facebook locally to cut back on shipping. You can also do auction/bid sale because this piece does not go for much $10 to $25.

Normally this takes anywhere from 3 weeks to a month and a half to get over this illness.

Cigarette Smoke Odor Coming from Condo Below

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

If the smoke is getting into your condo from the one below you will need some professional help to get this one fixed. You may need to hire a company to come out to seal the floors and anywhere else smoke is seeping up from the condo beflow it to your condo. You may want to ask the owner of the condo below yours if they allow smokers in their unit or not. Let them know what is happening and maybe the owner can talk with these people. Other than this speak to the HOA and see what can be done.

January 27, 20200 found this helpful

You may be uncomfortable doing this, but politely ask the renters below you to NOT smoke indoors, and tell them why. They just might agree to your request. If not, you may have to DIY or hire someone to seal all gaps in your floors, baseboards, outlets and switches, heat vents.....anything that might be letting even the tiniest bit of smoke into your unit from the one below you. You should also check with the condo board to see what they have to say about the renter's smoke penetrating your unit. Good luck .

Yes it is possible. The virus has to run its course. Your job is to keep the puppy hydrated. If you can keep the puppy hydrated, you can help it get through this awful virus at home.
Also it depends on your dog and how much damage to its intestines and stomach there is.
Comfort the dog and put spoonfuls of homemade pedialyte, in the dogs mouth. Do this as much as you can, but let the dog sleep.
I have seen dogs, non- responsive to iv and antibiotics. If you can stop dehydration, not only will they survive bit they will probably be immune from the virus in the future.

You are so right. They would make a cute pair of earrings or even a pin to wear. You can cut the feathers any size you want. If you wanted to make earrings you could make 4 feathers from one CD.

Feeling Disconnected from Parents

January 26, 20200 found this helpful

It is probably best to understand that their whining about getting older and being alone is not that unusual in any culture.
Parents do not always realize that their 'actions' may be driving their children away instead of bringing them closer.
I volunteer with a group and we visit several seniors and they also do some of the same even if their children visit and/or send money.
I do not believe you should let this sort of thing deter you from living a normal, happy life with your own family.
Give them whatever support you can but not at the expense of depriving your family - especially with your time and peace of mind.

We can all offer advice but you are the only one that can decide what is best for you and your family and your parents.

Using a Cake Mix That's Expired

January 26, 20200 found this helpful

I make many batches of cookies every Christmas from cake mixes that I purchase on sale all year and have never had any complaints. I don't worry too much about the dates, but do use the oldest boxes first. The recipe is... to one box of cake mix, add one large egg and one stick of softened butter. Mix thoroughly, drop on cookie sheet, bake. You can add things like nuts, coconut, spices, etc. This also works on brownie mixes.

Keep Lemon Wedges in the Freezer

January 26, 20200 found this helpful

I store my lemons on their tree. It produces lemons all year here in Central California near San Jose. When they ripen too much and fall off I just rake them up and put them in my compost bin. When I need the juice I just pick some and squeeze them into ice cube trays. The silicon ones that you push out from the back make cubes that are just the right size for a cup of tea. If you live here you probably have a neighbor who has a tree. Make friends with this person and they will be happy to give you free lemons. The trees produce waaaay too much fruit for one family.

Measuring Yeast When Making Bread

January 26, 20200 found this helpful

I'm just wondering it you are wanting to "pre-mix" the yeast with the 25lbs of flour?... That is a huge amount of bread!...If you are thinking of doing that, DON'T.. Yeast is a living organism and you will face problems moving forward. There are all kinds of comments about yeast quantities. I buy yeast in bulk and add it along with salt, water, a bit of oil and a pinch of sugar... There is tons of info on the web about bread making and variations in flours, fats, sweeteners and quantities, so perhaps more information may be required in this case.
