Making an Emergency Bug Out Box


Bronze Feedback Medal for 2021. 15 Feedbacks
August 3, 20210 found this helpful

Sandi,
Very good emergency prep info. !!! Each of us SHOULD have some kind of kit packed and ready to go at a moment's notice, whether for fires, flooding, hurricanes, tornado, blizzard, etc. Too many people are NOT prepared for emergencies. And I'm really impressed that you included items for your pet/pets, but I would also include harness/leash for each pet, just incase you don't have time to grab carriers. Also, if you can afford one, a hand-crank emergency weather radio is an extra add-on.
Good work Sandi. Thank you from all of us.

I've fought them for months, and I'm still being bothered. I've tried all kinds of stuff. Working in the mountains of North Carolina is the worst experience with them of my life. I went to a doctor, and be she treated it like lice. They are parasites because they feed off of you. The doctor gave me Ivomectrin a one time dose of five pills, A Permethrin Creme (found in most repellents), and you get a lice kit from Walmart. This was to get rid of the bugs on my body (not to heal) I don't guess, because I'm still getting bit, but I will say that this helped. She said, that I was the first that I she had seen this way. I mind you that the computer, or database for the doctors had no info what so ever on it. She said, I'd have to go to an Infectious Disease Specialist to get the best help, and possibly some medicine to take daily due to having the type blood or body chemistry they seem to love. God bless you! I know exactly what you are going through, because I had been in bitten so much they gave me an infection inside my body. If you find out anything that will help, kill, or prevent this demon from the gates of hell! Please let me know!! I'm getting bit as I type this!!!

It is difficult to tell very much about your dolls but many times there can be a treasure in boxes like this.
If you really want to know if your dolls are worth selling then you will have to go to a little trouble to post each doll and have some one provide information.
You will need pictures of one/each doll:
whole body - one front & one back - with and without original clothing
head - front and back
Information on each doll - measurement (length)
state material if possible

Do not post more than 2 dolls at a time as it gets too confusing and you will receive less information.
You can post 2 dolls on each site and then post again if you have more dolls.

Help Identifying Mid-Century Furniture Manufacturer?

Best Answer

It is very difficult to identify a furniture manufacturer without a manufacturer's stamp. In addition, your photo is not very good quality. Please add better quality photos. I cannot understand the round or square handles on the drawers. Your bedroom set is similar to Mid-Century American of Martinsville Blonde Bedroom Set www.ebth.com/.../5894859?show=&epik=dj0yJnU9TExBdXFsMWdHUFZCNzNaRlJiYlFwd0VxSEhRbGh1SW0mcD0wJm49WTNfTFhlQWVtOXR2WXZTR01tdmxrZyZ0PUFBQUFBR0VJYU00, www.ebth.com/.../2170041-vintage-american-of-martinsville...
But American of Martinsville furniture have a marking like here www.pinterest.com/.../
Marking or label may have been placed inside a drawer. Inspect all drawers carefully.

This is a weevil. They can be very prolific! You'll need to vacuum your pantry thoroughly (use a flashlight), wipe shelves and walls with white vinegar (the smell will soon be gone) and put all dry foodstuffs in snap or ziplock containers. Also go through the house with a careful eye to unexpected sources of food for them (I know of one case where they fed on a rice-filled heat pack in the linen closet; other examples include pet food, decorative corn cobs, garden fruits and vegetables, toaster crumbs). Outside you can use Diatomaceous Earth (and make sure your window screens and doors are well-sealed). Inside please use natural/organic pesticides and sticky traps; commercial pesticides are not healthy for other living things including pets and people.

Natural Brown Went Orange After Highlighting?

I have had this happen to me twice. The first time (many years ago) was because my grandmother had a lot of iron and sulfur in her water, I went back to the salon and had to have them put some kind of treatment on it. The second time the salon owner over booked appointments and had a worker call in the same day, so instead of rescheduling they just rushed everyone and messed up a few of us pretty bad. I ended up going back to all dark that time because she burned mine really bad too. Try some of the purple shampoo, it should definitely help.

Can I Get a Perm On Colour Treated Hair?


Bronze Post Medal for 2021. 31 Posts
August 1, 20210 found this helpful
Best Answer

Any chemical treatment will have an effect on your hair's health. Perming is not recommended until hair is back to health, as perming damaged hair can cause it to break. A demi wave perm (also known as a body wave) is still a chemical treatment, but the chemical solutions are a lot less harsh and damaging to hair than they used to be. If your hair is not too badly damaged, then get demi wave perm.

Most hairstylists would recommend getting the perm first, before coloring the hair to ensure that the perming process does not conflict with the newly applied color. Chemicals in the perm neutralizing solution can react with hair colorants and cause the hair to become lighter. You should wait at least fifteen days after getting a perm to dye your hair.

Short hair can be made wavy hair too.
A body wave perm can last between three and six months depending on how you take care of your hair.
Use a porosity control shampoo before coloring hair so it will absorb the color more evenly.

Is this your table: www.liveauctioneers.com/.../71058334_mersman-23-7-round-coffee...

If so, the value is almost nothing, sadly, as this particular style is not popular in most parts of the country. I haven't seen one sell in ages. This one is from 2019, they expected to get up to $100, it did not sell at starting bid of $25.

If you do great flip job on it you may actually increase the value!! That is not often I say that, but this particular Mersman style is one where it is worth more in a redo than original.

I say this based on Western PA and the posting I shared which is from Englewood FL. You may be in a place where this is a high demand item...but knowing resale, you are safe to have fun redoing it! Thanks for asking!

Address Book for Internet Information

August 1, 20210 found this helpful

I no longer use an 'address book' as described above. I keep my addresses, phone numbers, names on computer. I use a couple different ways to do this. Then I can save the file and go in and edit periodically to add, change, or delete contacts. I do not stop there. I print one list on regular paper, place in sheet protectors, and use a binder ring which I hang on a hook near the phone. I also make a "frequently used" list (doctors, immediate family, frequently called businesses, etc) which I print on colored cardstock for quick reference, add to a sheet protector and add to the ring. For a portable address book, I have done 2 things. I print smaller copy of list(font, paper size, etc), and slip into the flap of my pocket calendar or checkbook. I have also purchased the little photo albums($store) and cut pages to slip into the protective clear pages for portability and reference. I have used these techniques for keeping other lists as well-take out numbers, measurements of specific items for matching, and sometimes a list of things I need to get when on sale for a specific purpose. Once saved on my computer I can access and print whenever I need to. Keeping separate lists for doctors, businesses, take out ordering, has been handy. I don't have to 'google' everything, or try to find a phone book (do they still make them?) and I can make updates or changes on the printed sheet(pull out of sleeve) to refer to to take to my computer for updates and editing.

No matter how hard I try, we always have more plastic bags than we can use. (Yes, we do use recycle bags) I found that they can be handy when packing.

Identifying Little Black Flying Bugs?

August 1, 20210 found this helpful

Sounds like fruit flies/gnats to me. You can buy inexpensive tips for them or make your own by putting 1/4 apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of dish soap in a jar. Roll a piece of paper into a cone shape, and place into the jar pointy side down. They fruit flies can fly into the jar, but can't get back out. The vinegar (needs to be apple cider because it smells sweet) lures the gnats and the dish soap traps them in the liquid.
Be sure to keep as much produce as possible in the fridge. Gnats LOVE any fruits or veggies left on the counter. Wipe up spills immediately and wash dishes. Pour vinegar and baking soda down your drains (including the bathroom) and flush with hot water. They sometimes hang out in drains. Take the trash out and clean litter boxes/diaper pails daily.

You can also buy the upholstery foam and use a scrub brush. Wet it down and pull it all out with several passes of the wet/dry shop vac. Leave your windows down overnight so the car doesn't mold. Best done in 50-65 degree weather.

I believe it is a 12 oz. can. That is the most common size.

If you try this recipe, please let us know how it turns out.

Identifying Odor in House?

August 1, 20210 found this helpful

If you have pets, they may be peeing on the furniture/rug without you knowing. Male cat urine can be especially stinky.
You could also have an infestation of mice and they have moved from one room to another.

What Should I Do For My 17th Birthday?

August 1, 20210 found this helpful

You can have a small party at home with your friends. Most people are fine with pizza, pop, and cake (you can bake your own cake and pizza). Pull out some old board games or turn on a movie. You could also have a bring-you-own picnic in the park and bring a cake to share with your friends! Most parks allow small parties (less than 50 people) with no associated fee. Bring frisbees or nerf guns to play with!
Happy birthday! Hope it's a great one!

Webster Dictionary Misprint?

Book printing is a two stage process of printing and binding, sometimes being done in completely different factories, even in different cities. The intersection between the two is a likely place for an accident to happen. If you could sell books at a premium because they had errors, publishers could make deliberate errors. They are private businesses, in it for the money. Therefore, such errors usually do not give particular value to the book. Books with misprints are only valuable in books that are already rare to start.
But things with misprint are only worth money as long as people are willing to pay for them. So maybe someone will be interested in such a book.

Most books like this are facsimiles/reproductions but I did not see this cover although there are thousands of similar books listed for sale online and would take many hours of research to say for sure.
It also appears most facsimiles were published between 1930-1945.
However, another member may be able to find the same cover so be sure to keep checking for new answers.

I'm not sure this type of ads were commonplace in the fairy tale books but maybe I've forgotten.
You will need to show the first pages of the book;
Title page?
Directory page showing names of stories?
Any page showing name of illustrator/artist?
Page showing publishers?

Without some of this information (unless someone finds the exact copy) it will be very difficult to answer your questions.

I can only suggest you take the book to your local library and ask the head librarian for assistance. Sometime they have access to information about complete lines of books that may not be available to us.

Your book does not look in the best condition so that would lower the value no matter the 'current value'.
