A&D Ointment As Night Cream

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

Do not use zinc oxide ointment on broken skin it will burn your skin and make it more irritated. If you don't have a petroleum based ointment you can make your own with 3 ingredients, you will need lanolin and petrolatum or petroleum (same thing just different names) and fish oil pharmaceutical grade like cod liver oil you take as a supplement. Mix in a 1-1-1 ratio add some vitamin e oil as well and apply make a batch as big as you need

Identifying Tiny Black Bugs

I can't see the critter clearly so you may want to see if it matches the image of a tick see link. goo.gl/.../svL2wa

Their bites can cause localized hair loss. Other things can cause it too, so check with your doctor either way and sooner rather than later.

Ticks can carry Lyme disease do if that is what is going on you want to catch that early. Thyroid issues cause hair loss too and that is also nothing to mess with. Wishing you the best! Better safe than sorry!

No matter what, seal up the leak ASAP!

Legally... like for an official answer, the lawyer who drafted the POA needs to tell you what is what. How to enforce it and the like.

That will cost money. Before going down that road...

Have you tried to understand your brother's point of view on this? If it is to protect the items from being stolen? Then you may need to talk to your mom about why having jewelry at her facility is not a good idea.

If he is just being unreasonable with no clear reason, that is different. Hear him out.

Having gone through this recently with a family member and close friend, keeping a minimum of things at a nursing home is best as things tend to disappear...from other residents who think the items are theirs, or staff or guests with sticky fingers. Or even the owner throwing things out by mistake, which happens all the time. I can't tell you how many times my friend's aunt threw out her hearing aides or lost them in her bed sheets. Too many times to count.

Best to have a reasonable conversation first before calling in the lawyers. Just my opinion. Good luck!!

This all depends on what was written in this document and what you can do legally. You should seek the advice of a lawyer or the person who drafted this document for you. If your brother won't comply then you might need to take him to court or get a court order to have him bring it back. Basically, only a lawyer can actually advise you on this matter.

Peach Jam Not Setting Up

I personally wouldn't bother to recook as you could totally ruin it and that would be sad.

What I used to do was just use it like syrup on pancakes, ice cream, or over strawberry shortcake (a surprisingly yummy combo). It needs to be refrigerated and keeps a week or so.

I never could figure out why one time it would work and the next time not. It is disappointing. It is good as a "condiment" though.

Value of an Antique Writing Desk

Here's a link about the company, which was based in Michigan and closed in 1983.

If you get to the Smithsonian, they have some of their catalogs on file:

americanhistory.si.edu/.../SILNMAHTL_12186

You may be able to find an original ad for the item! That would be cool!

There are lots of Pinterest pages devoted to the comoany's secretary style writing tables, which is one of the names I have heard this style of desk called. The legs I call spinit style...like piano...I have heard some desks like this refered to as piano style because of how it opens.

You may want to sort thru the Pinterest pages to pin down the age of your piece, which is lovely, by the way. I adore this style desk!!

You have a neat find. Some of the pieces still have value, but not all. I don't see an exact match at the moment in eBay's sold section. If you check back often, you can get an idea of what the are valued at in today's market.

Thanks for sharing this sweet item!

Freezing DIY Hair Masks

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

I have read about spas that freeze facial masks and then use them like popsicles as part of a treatment. So I would assume it is safe to freeze a hair mask since they are usually similar ingredients. But will it be the same consistency when thawed? Probably not. I can see it separating and not being asthetically pleasing. If it is for personal use and that is ok with you, go for it. If it is for a salon or spa treatment, i would say no thanks if I was the customer.

Storing Homemade Chocolate Covered Wafers

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

Boy are they pretty!! WOW!! You are very talented!

poehere and Judy both together are what I do...a layer of paper towel on the bottom, then wax paper, then chocolates, wax, choc, wax, choc and then paper towel on top of the last piece of waxpaper in a sealed container, in a cool dark part of the dinning room since my kitchen gets too much sun. It works!

Chocolate is the food of the gods and it is amazing...I am sure as you are quite familiar...it is also seriously temperamental...kinda like a 2 year old who got into a cappuccino...it is all over the place if you aren't careful!

This article talks about temperatures for maximum awesomeness ..20 C = 68 F.

No surprise if you know me, that chocolate does not last long around my house...so the storing part is mostly a moot point...the sweating thing is always a challenge, but this method works...and not using the fridge.

Happy chocolating!! Enjoy!!

You should store these in an airtight container. You will need to use wax paper between the layers. This should help keep them nice and crunchie for you. It is best to not put these in the refrigerator to cool off. Let them sit on the counter until they are cool and then add them to your airtight container. Store the container away from the sunlight in a cool place in your kitchen.

Using Bread to Pick Up Broken Glass

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

I am sorry if I offend anyone but I think this is one of the most irresponsible ideas I have ever seen. When I break glass I sweep it up and then vacuum it. I also recycle broken glass in the glass recycling.We have wild birds outside who love bread. They would not think twice about eating bread out of the garbage. this glass no matter how small the pieces are will damage or kill any critter who eats it, or even a homeless person who gets into the garbage. Besides it is a big waste of bread.

I just did the same thing a few days ago, I dropped a delicate thin glass bowl, and what a mess, and I was worried about those super thin slivers of glass that could still remain in the rough grout. So I put on gloves and used a ton of wet paper towels, but when the sun light shined on the floor, I could still see a few glistening shards were still here and there.

I love this way to go with the bread to absorb up those minuscule pieces.

Thank you Attosa! :)

What Breed Is My Dog?

this dog looks like what a dog looks like when he has every single possible dog lineage running through his veins/DNA. They all tend to become medium-tall, gray brown, short haired, long snout and pointy ears

this means he is of high intelligence and hearty health. If I ever get a pet I will make sure that it has as much genetic variance as possible because I want the best, smartest, hardiest dog around.

Their first year is very important for a good healthy long life.

Deliveries Are Left Against Door That Opens Out

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

It appears that you've done all you can and the companies aren't listening. I would file a formal complaint with UPS and also with Amazon because of this. The signs on the door and wall should be enough for the delivery man to get a clue to not block your door.

The only other thing you can do is leave this door open during the day when you expect a delivery. This way the door isn't blocked and you can get in and out of your home safely. However, a large package sitting in front of a door is also a hazard and people should understand this.

I feel deliveries should be left out of sight and not sitting in front of a door where anyone can walk by and see them there. This isn't a smart move for a delivery company if you ask me.

Value of Tiered Mersman Tables

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

When the company was in business they made thousands of different tables and designs. I remember seeing some in my grandma's home at one time. When she decided to redecorate she gave them to her friend.

Just keep in mind that the value of the tables is determined by supply and demand. If you table is hard to find or has a limited number made it is worth more than the ones that they made more of. Furthermore, the value is determined by how many people are wanting or looking for these tables.

Normally you can ask $75 to $100 for the set.

Repairing an Electric Typewriter

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

It sounds like the processor chip or a circuit board in the typewriter is damaged and either need cleaning or replaced. I would see if you can find any type of manual on this typewriter and find out how hard it would be to open it up. A lot of time a circuit board can get dust on it from paper and stop working. A simple cleaning of the electronics inside the typewriter can sometimes get it running again. You might find a video on YouTube to help you open this up and clean it or replace the damaged part.

Dividing Rent With Boyfriend and His Son

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

If this is the case and the boy refuses to move out then it is necessary to cut him off completely. He needs to realize that it isn't up to you to do all for him. If he continues to sleep all day and play video games you should charge him rent like his dad wants to.

In doing so both you and your boyfriend's rent should be reduced the same and the son will pick up the balance. It isn't only the father who benefits from his son paying rent, it is the two of you to benefit.

Read More
August 17, 20180 found this helpful

Sounds like all good advice but I believe you should think about this very carefully before you have any discussions and try to know for sure what you can or will do if the situation does not change.

What was the agreement when the son moved in 2 years ago? What does the son plan to do with his life? Does he have more schooling in mind - college or vocational school or does he have plans to look for a full time job and move to a place of his own?

These are questions the father should know or be asking and if he is not doing this then you may have a difficult time asking for a different financial arrangement. Once the financial discussion is started, there will most likely be a lot of discord in your "family" group.
I believe the situation with the living conditions (staying or moving out) should be settled as this decision will have to be the basis of the financial solution.

The son definitely needs to be making a contribution to the overall living expenses but how much money is he making? How much can he pay and still have money to move out? Moving out on his own will require a substantial amount of money unless he is moving in with his mother or moving back to wherever he lived until he was 16.

I assume the father was paying support before his son moved in 2 years ago and that should have been the time for the 50/50 arrangement to have been discussed - that support money should have been added to reduce the total living expenses and the balance could have been the 50/50.

Since this was not done it now appears the situation will probably be seen as the "ugly stepmother syndrome" by your BF and the son and maybe some other people as well.

You definitely have to be realistic about what can change as your BF is the only person that can set up any rules for his son and it does not appear that he is wanting to be very firm about his son's lifestyle or future. Maybe he feels it is too soon after graduation but I do not believe this lifestyle just started but has been condoned for a long time.

It seems like it is down to deciding what your actions will be if nothing changes - know where you stand but try not to make any threats like "make changes or I'm out!" unless that is what you intend to do. This is your future too so be sure you are ready to face the problems that are definitely in your future with a BF that has an 18 year old live-in son.

Read More
August 16, 20180 found this helpful

it is really as simple as, how much of this situation are you willing to tolerate? If you can't and nobody can see your terms, you leave. It's simple.

the father will tend to side with his kids first, no question. It is in fact as it should be. That is a fact of life that the new person in the family dynamic has to accept.

On the other hand, your BF is doing your son no favours by tolerating disrespectful and aimless behaviours in the boy and failing to instill any discipline or sense in self=pride. Impressing on this son that he needs to pull his own weight because it's the only way that his life will not suck and that paying rent is an excellent way of accomplishing this - its like when they are children and you tie their allowance to chores - is a reasonable point any parent should adopt.

you could appeal to your BF that in the interest of building character and having his son develop better lifestyle habits and character that he should, in fact, pay rent or otherwise 'earn his keep'. Try not to sound like the evil Yoko Ono Stepmother in saying this because unfortunately that is how you are in some senses viewed due to your role in the family dynamic.

and if the father is too emotional and the kid too uncontrollable to effectuate this, you may have to move out for your sanity's sake.

Preventing a Dog from Marking in the House

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

P.S. I do not mix carpet shampoo with the LYSOL.

Read More
August 17, 20180 found this helpful

Your new dog is marking its territory over the older dog. It feels insecure and if there is old pee in the room where the new dog smells, it will pee there.

I trained my new dog to pee right where the older dogs go outside and the new dog goes to the same area. It is the same way in the house. You would need to keep the dog away from places where it pees in the house and have both dogs socialize more; this may help to stop that bad habit. If your new dog was not neutered early in life, this may also be the root of the problem as neutering can help stop the marking. In the meantime, treat the flooring to rid the odor.

I have used carpet shampoos in my Rug Doctor and it really cleans great, but the best overall cleaning, deodorizing and disinfectant found that really works for our home is using LYSOL in the brown bottle. It costs around $6.00 and 3-4 capfuls in the shampooer's container does wonders on the carpet. I love it and my husband noticed a big difference too. You might want to try this out.

Getting Used to Wearing Dentures

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

Dentures can cause sore spots on the gums and may need some altering by the dentist. However, the uncomfortable feeling of wearing them is foreign in the mouth; certainly a far cry of the natural teeth. Wear dentures in short spurts; 15-30 mins. at a time when possible and remove for a little while and then put back in until you break them in. Just like new shoes, a breaking in time is required. It is normal to have that full wad experience which is just a part of getting used to them. Eventually, you will not have any of that feeling.

Leaves on Avocado Tree Sunburned

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

To help your young avocado tree along, remove it from the south or southwest area to diminish intensity of the sun. Like your own skin, an avocado is sensitive to sunburning too. If you had a sunburn, you would not expose yourself to direct sun's heat because the burning sensation is intensified.

Yes, you can paint a tree using half water and half acrylic white paint and put it on all the areas where leaves have fallen. This will help protect it more from getting sunburned further. However, the avocado tree would have been planted outdoors exposed to the sun. I don't know if you would do this to such a young plant as your own.

Do not over water as the tree won't be needing an abundance of water due to lack of leaves, but do keep it sheltered from sun until you see it improving. Good Luck.

Identifying Biting Bugs on Bed

August 17, 20181 found this helpful

These critters in your photo do resemble bed bugs. You will definitely need an exterminator to rid them. If you are just noticing these bugs, you may have them just in your bed, but they can be carried from bedroom to other rooms and get in sofa/chair.

Immediately, wrap the mattress and box spring in plastic and securely tape closed everywhere before removing it from the home to prevent bugs and their eggs from escaping.

Remove yourself from that bedroom and set up sleeping in another room. Do not visit other people's homes while you have this problem as these bugs can be carried into other places. It is best to keep the problem isolated as much as possible.

When the exterminator determines you have no more problem and can move back into the bedroom. Do yourself a favor by protecting your new mattress set from a future invasion. Start out by getting a bed bug protective zipper covering for both. This set up covers top, bottom and all sides.

Fully vacuum the carpet several times a day and deposit the debris into a plastic sealed bag and remove from home or if you can burn it even the better. Bed bugs can be in the bed frame and any dark places in the room, so a thorough cleaning is necessary; however, it's not guarantee you have rid ALL bugs and eggs from the room. That's why an exterminator is most helpful.

Benadryl Cream or any knock off brand will relieve the itching from bites received.

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

If the AC is low on refrigerant/coolant it can affect the working of the thermostat. Also, if the thermostat has a broken fan blade or the condenser might be blocked by road debris, (leaves, plastic, dirt,etc.) these can prevent the AC from properly working. The worse scenario would be electrical problem. Begin with the least expensive checking first.

Check to see if the blockage of the condenser is the reason by looking through the grill in front and use compressor and blow out debris from leaves, plastic, dust build up. If the AC unit still doesn't work, then check the fan blade for breakage before adding expensive refrigerant.

With newer cars today, they have electrical sensors and it's possible that a module has gone bad or a wire broke that triggers possible ventilation problem.

The three most common issues are a leak in the coolant tank, some sort of electrical kerfuffle in the cooling system, or a dying compressor.

Unless you are super handy, you may want to take it to your mechanic and have them look.

Hope it is an easy and inexpensive fix.

Wow! Sorry you have so much going on in your world.

A couple of things...I hope your mom is getting the pups treated for the mange as it makes the poor things quite miserable and while it can take awhile it is (in most cases) totally curable.

She should be isolating the pups so they don't infect other pups. Anyone who is in contact with the pups should be careful also if they start to get red, itchy bumps as some strains are transmittable to people. The vet can give her all the details and let her know if what the pups have is the kind of mange that can be spread to people and what protections to take if it is.

Like Judy said, cats are not a typical host for mange/mites, but they can still have issues from the mites even though it is not full blown mange.

WebMD has some good info--I have two links for you.

pets.webmd.com/.../cat-mange-scabies#1

pets.webmd.com/.../mange-dogs-canine-scabies#1

Talk to the vet about what you can do to prevent spread from your shoes and such if that is what you are worried about the spreading issue. The vet can tell you if bleach is the best thing or if there is something better.

Sending up healing prayers for all! Please make sure to follow whatever advice the vet gives carefully so there is no spreading and high chance of full recovery!

Cats are not the preferred hosts for mange. If your cat does get it, and it is unlikely since she doesnt live with the dog, it will be short-lived and resolve on its own

You do not say how you will be marketing your products but usually a short name is best and much easier to remember.

You will have to be careful with using a name that is already taken, especially if you plan to start a true business and acquire a license/LLC.

Something Simple:
Natural Renewing Skincare
Natural Glowing Skincare

Here is a good site that has some suggestions about a skincare business .

Bobbin Thread Keeps Breaking on Jones Sewing Machine

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

I do not know what you have tried but maybe this will help:
From one website:

"The upper thread tension could be set too tight. Set the tension to the best thread tension setting or less. Make sure the spool of thread is installed correctly using the correct size spool cap for the size of spool. ... Check that the bobbin is wound so that it about 80% full and that the thread is evenly wound. Be sure thread is not old or twisted."

Jack Sewing Machine Error Code Eb

August 17, 20180 found this helpful

You do not say where you live (US or?) so it will be difficult to help with your problem as this is not a machine that is traditionally sold in the US. Unless you are in China, the company will most likely not respond to any questions.

Here is a link to the maintenance manual (in English) that has all the codes listed and how/what to do to correct the problem.

The code Eb is shown as System over-voltage and instructions to correct it are close to the bottom of the page.

en.chinajack.com/.../201706271100232.pdf

If you do not understand what to do you should try to contact a local machine service shop that works on the Jack machines.
