I see you have had experience with this in Florida. I am seeking 5 acres of trees to be taken down. I don't want to spend a fortune to a tree company to remove them. I need to get started on some projects and 90% of my trees are going away. we prefer grass and open field. I especially want the big ones near the house that I am afraid to do myself taken down any suggestions on that?

Many people have old books they think are valuable and would like to sell. Most old dictionaries, references etc., have very little value, a few dollars at most. Encyclopedias dated after 1923 are essentially worthless but crafters may be interested for the old pictures. Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc., receive donations of tons of old encyclopedias, dictionaries and reference books but send them to recycling centers or dumps as they cannot use or sell them.
You can check online for old book collectors, on EBay, Craigs List and other retail sites for possibilities. Everything is now online and updated constantly so old books are just that-old.

Removing Sharpie from Hair

December 13, 20170 found this helpful

I have long hair and accidentally missed my paper and got it on my hair. The first thing that I did was get my hair wet. Then I used a towel and rubbed astringent on it and kept doing that until it looked almost back to normal. I think you could also use nail polish remover. After that I used a dandruff shampoo and washed that one area three times and it immediately came out completely. Too make sure it wouldn't dry out my hair I put on a conditioning spray. Now it is completely back to normal, and seems it never happened at all!

Orangettes

December 13, 20170 found this helpful

Hi, thanks for your lovely greeting and a Merry Christmas to you and yours too. So pleased you are going to use the recipe I know you won't be disappointed. I just made another batch as the ones I made for Christmas have already disappeared!

We have a teeny bit of a problem because US and English measure are not the same either but I will do my best to convert metric to US. A kilo bag of sugar is 2.2lbs. 200g is 7 ounces. A millilitre is a metric unit of liquid. There are 1000 millilitres in a litre. That is where the problem comes because a US pint is smaller than a UK pint! So I had a quick look on the net and think I have the following solution.

A US cup=236 millilitres of liquid which means about 236 grams of sugar per cup of liquid= 8.3 ounces.

So when making the syrup 1 cup of liquid needs 8 ounces of sugar, Half a cup would need 4 ounces and so forth.

I really hope this helps and if it doesn't just let me know and we will work it out a different way!

Singer 301 Won't Free Motion Quilt Stitch

December 13, 20170 found this helpful

Hi! I just finally got my 301 set correctly in order to free motion quilt. I was having issues with tension as well as with skipped stitches.
Lower the feeds dogs, set stitch length to 0 which is just above the highest # stitches, make sure you have a darning foot that fits the machine. Then increase the presser bar tension. The darning foot will press down hard while making the stitch and then release so you can move the fabric between stitches. The fabric needs to be held in place during the stitch making otherwise it won't catch the bobbin thread.
the 301 manual shows using the darning foot with the fabric in an embroidery hoop, but if you use a darning foot with the presser bar set to really hold the fabric taut during stitch making then you should be fine.
Let me know if you need more help. I went from bonkers frustrated to being able to do this and I know you can, too.
