Information on Old Mexican Silver Bracelet

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

Here are a few facts about Silver made in Mexico.

  1. Pure silver has a brilliant metallic luster.
  2. Pure silver is a soft alloy that is easy to work with and to form. However, if you're making jewelry, plates, silverware or beads the alloy needs to be mixed with another alloy to make it stronger and more durable.
  3. If the bracelet was handcrafted from pure silver and one of the alloys it can tarnish at a slow rate. This will tarnish faster than pure sterling silver.
  4. A good quality sterling silver bracelet is 90% silver and mixed with 10% alloys.
  5. In Mexico they would stamp their silver. Such as 925 or so forth. This indicated the state of purity of the silver bracelet.
  6. If you purchased your bracelet from 1960 to 1970 the bracelet would be stamped with a number. The different range of number is 900, 925, 970, and 980. These are Eagle number of silver made in Mexico.
  7. I would suggest looking at your bracelet and see if you can find any stamp with a number such as these.
  8. This will indicate how pure your bracelet is and how much alloy was used when making your bracelet.

Sterling silver bracelet.

Step 1
Sterling silver does not tarnish.

Step 2
If it does it means it has more copper in it.

Step 3
Sterling silver is usually marked,but not necessarily in Mexico.

Step 4
Be wary of buying jewlery over in Mexico because there is nothing you can do if they sell you something other then they advertised.

Dog Smells After Bathing

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

I don't know why my answer hasn't shown up. Ask your vet for Cytopoint. A new med like steroids but without the side effects. It works! At least for the itching. I bathe my Llhasa every 4 days, by day 3 at this time of year, (fall) he's stinking up the place. He has yeast. Impossible to get rid of but can be handled with yeast shampoo and vinegar. Email me if you need further help. Poor pups.

I have a wonderful doggie skin vet who found a drug called Cytopoint. It's not a steroid but acts like one. I rescued a Lhasa who had horrible allergies and now has nasty yeast. Impossible to get rid of but he no longer scratches. It's a wonder drug. Not cheap but worth it to me. I use a for yeast shampoo on him and bathe him every 4 days. Different times of year are worse than others. Oh yeah, he stinks. After 3 days, it's time for a bath. Also rinse his feet, the worst offenders in 2/3water to 1/3 vinegar. It helps. I hope this helps some of you

Transmission of Parvo

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

How Parvo is transferred:

  1. Parvo is a virus and it can be transferred from one animal to the next by contact.
  2. If one animal is sick with parvo and hasn't started to show the signs and it plays with a healthy dog. The healthy dog can contact the virus and get sick too.
  3. If an animal was in your yard and was sick with parvo the virus hangs around for up to 6 months or longer. You can track the virus in your home each time you walk across the yard.
  4. Parvo virus can be tracked around on the soles of your shoes or even your bare feet.
  5. If you visit another person's yard who had parvo or an animal sick with parvo you can bring this virus home to your own animals.
  6. Yes, bleach and water will kill the virus. But if you have the virus outside you can still bring the virus back into your home each day.
  7. In your yard, you'll need to spay the grass, sidewalks, and all areas with the bleach and water solution.
  8. You'll need to continue to clean your home for around 3 to 6 months with the bleach and water solution.
  9. This is to ensure you haven't tracked the virus back into your home on the soles of your shoes.
Read More
October 20, 20170 found this helpful

The parvo virus can be killed with diluted bleach, but the solution must touch every part of the infected surface, which is not always possible. For example, it could be on outdoor surfaces and grass. You need to keep your dogs inside in a non-infected area until they are protected by their vaccines.

Child Support and Social Security Benefits

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

If I am reading this correctly, it says you have just found out who your son's father is. Here are a few facts that might help you determine if SSN will pay you anything for your son. You will need the answers to a few of these questions before you make an appointment to talk with someone.

  1. Was your son's father aware that he had a child?
  2. Did you put his name on the child's birth certificate?
  3. Were you living together at the time your son was born?
  4. Did he ever help support your son?
  5. Did he ever claim your son on his tax returns?
  6. Did he have an insurance policy with your son's name on it?
  7. Did he ever help support his son?
  8. Did he ever visit his son?
  9. Did his son stay with him on weekends or long holidays?
  10. Can you talk to the parent's of your son's father and see if they can help you acquire anything of his like a hair sample or an old toothbrush? With this you can do a DNA test to prove that he was actually the boy's dad.
  11. Before making an appointment with Social Security you will need to have proof that your son was actually his child.
  12. I would suggest that you talk with your son's father's parents and see if they can help you out.
  13. Do they even know they have a grandson?
  14. Your son is now 23 and I am wondering if you had an order from the court for his father to pay you child support?
  15. Maybe with this and some other proof you can see if SSN will give you some money for back child support payment.
  16. I wish you luck and hope you can get some back child support to help your son finish college.

Each case is different. It depends on how long he worked and how much he made. Make an appointment with Social Security. Bring the father's death certificate and your child's birth certificate. I would also bring any proof that he is the father of your child.

Light Switch Not Controlling Outlets

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

Houses built in 1969 used a wiring system called a continuous loop.

  1. A continuous loop uses the same wiring in one room in a loop. So if you wire an outlet the loop goes from the outlet to another outlet and then can end at the light switch and go to the fuse box.
  2. Some houses continued the loop around the entire home and brake it up in different room for the load on the fuse box.
  3. In light switches you will not use the positive and negative wires on the switch. You will only wire the positive and leave the negative off the switch. You can tie these wires together with a cable splicer or wire splicer.
  4. Do you still happen to have the switches you took out of the room? If you do, please put one of them back and see if the loop is continued and you have a constant flow of electricity in the room.
  5. If you don't then you have a short in your loop and the current isn't flowing around the loop in this room.
  6. Therefore, you will need to check your wiring at the switch and make sure your wires are secure and inside the switch to make contact.
  7. They made contact at first, but after a few flips of the switch they are no longer making contact. Check this.
  8. Last but not least if you are still having some issues you can use a cable tester to test the flow of electricity in your home.
  9. If you still can't determine why the new switches aren't working correctly, you might need to consult an electrician on this.
  10. Hot wires in an outlet or fuse box can be dangerous and cause a house fire. You need to be careful of this if your circuits are getting extremely hot because there is a short in the wiring that is causing this issue.

I would check the fuse box and if they are switches flick everyone of them.
If that does not work call an electrician it could be a fire hazard.

Cat Urinating on Countertop

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

Here is a few things to check to see if this helps:

  1. You don't know if it is actually one of your cats or a stray cat that is coming in your home to pee on your coutertop. Therefore, you will need to find out if it is one of your cats or a stray.
  2. Try isolating each of the cats in an area alone with a litter box. Check to make sure you have no more pee on the countertop when you let them out.
  3. If you don't find pee you'll know for sure it is one of your cat's doing this.
  4. Now you need to find out which one. In order to do this you will need to isolate one of them alone in a room with a littler box. Check to see if you have pee.
  5. If you still do then it means one of the other two cats is doing this. Keep isolating one to find out who is doing this.
  6. Now that you know which cat it is you will need to determine why they won't use their litter box.
  7. Have you changed the litter that you used? If you haven't then it is another reason.
  8. Examine your cat's feet. Check to see if your cat has an ingrown nail or a sore foot.
  9. Normally if they do this means they won't use the litter box because it is hurting their feet when they dig in the litter.
  10. You might need to take a urine sample to the vet and have it tested. One of your cats could be sick and you don't realize it.
  11. As some cat's get older they can have stress related issues. Do you notice that one of the cat's has been stressed or acting differently?
  12. Last one is are you gone when the cat pees on the countertop or are you home when this happens?
  13. If you are away from home when this happens one way is to keep the cats in a room with thier litter box when you are gone. Only let them out when you arrive home again. Keep the cat door locked when you are not home.

15th Birthday Party Ideas

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

Here are a few ideas:

  1. Believe it or not Pinatas are still a big hit at the teenager's birthday party. This can be fun for both boys and girls. When you blind fold the person you will need to spin him or her around 15 times before they can hit the Pinata.
  2. One time we set up the side of the house as a movie theater and showed films on the side of the house. It was a lot of fun. We had chairs set up, made popcorn, had hot dogs, and drinks. The kids could enjoy this and watch films and eat at the same time. It is a good idea, but can only be a night party.
  3. If your parent's don't want to spend a lot of money try to find some good coupons for pizza. You can have your party at a pizza parlor and eat pizza. Your mom can bring the cake. If you have coupons where you buy one and get one free this will be cheaper than trying to make food or do a BBQ on the beach.

I am not sure where you live, but for me - I live in California! So it's still beach or pool season so you could have a party there! And the food would be easy chips, pizza, snack food and water/soda/Gatorade.

Other options could be, having a party at the park! Again with the easy snacks and pizza. Play board games at the park, activities/sports or find inspiration online especially Pinterest! You could craft your own decorations prior to your party.

But my all time favorite would have to be the bowling alley. It's inexpensive and you can check your local bowling alley place if they have any special or deals going on. Or, if you have a pool hall/arcade center that'll be fun too!

Nail Polish Remover Left White Stain on Linoleum Tile Floor

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

Here are a few facts you should know about your floor to help you out.

  1. Did the nail polish remover you used have acetone?
  2. The acetone will eat through the finish of your floor.
  3. Also, it is important to know if your floor is really linoleum or is it one of the newer types of plastic floors with a shine to it?
  4. This is important to know this one. Because if the floor is really linoleum you can actually sand the spot on your floor and apply a new coat of wax to the area.
  5. Most linoleum floor is kept waxed and hopefully it is only the wax that has turned yellow.
  6. In this case a lightweight sand paper can remove the coat of wax that has turned white and you can apply another coat of wax to your floor.
  7. However, if this is one of the new plastic tile floor that is shinny you have ruined the shine on the floor and eaten through the flooring with the nail polish remover.
  8. I am so sorry there isn't much you can do with this now. You will need to replace the tile on the floor to fix this problem.
  9. Before attempting this you have nothing to loose to try sanding this down a bit to remove the wax and waxing it again to see if it helps.
  10. If it doesn't work, then the tile itself needs to be replaced.

Puppy Poops in Crate

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

Here are a few things that might help you regulate the puppy's problems.

  1. You will basically need to learn your puppy's schedule when he wants to pee and poop. So basically you aren't just house training him, you are also house training yourself.
  2. Normally a puppy will go poop 20 to 30 minutes after they eat.
  3. If your puppy has been sleeping, he will normally pee right away after he wakes up. Keep on the puppy and when he wakes up take him outside immediately.
  4. Normally the puppy will pee first thing in the morning right after they wake up. So the first thing you need to do in the morning when the puppy wakes up is to take him outside immediately.
  5. Your puppy will also pee just before he goes to bed for the night. So make sure you have him out for a walk so he can pee before you put him in his crate for the night.
  6. Your puppy is now 3 months old. So normally a 3 month old puppy will pee during the day every 3 hours. You will have to keep watching the clock on this one and get him outside within the time frame so he pees outside and not in your home.
  7. As the puppy grows older he can learn to hold his pee for longer periods of time.
  8. If your puppy is loose in your home, you should try to take the puppy out to pee every hour or hour and a half.
  9. Basically, you are not only training your puppy you are training yourself too.
  10. Some puppy's are more difficult to house train and therefore you need to learn their schedule so you can stop accidents before they happen.
  11. If the puppy keeps pooping in his crate then you will need to remove their bedding and any toys you have in the crate. You can't reward the puppy for good behavior when he is being bad.
  12. Before putting the puppy in their crate you will need to make sure you have taken the puppy outside to go to the toilet. Make sure he pees several times and at least poops once.
  13. You can reward him for good behavior when he goes poop on his walk. I normally find with my small dogs they will poop normally once or twice before they go down for the night.
  14. You should take the puppy out 30 minutes after he has eaten, and again just before you put him in his crate.
  15. All dogs are different and you just need to learn your puppy's behavior and get use to his toilet schedule.
  16. I am sure the rest will come as time passes, he will come and ask you to go out. But for now he doesn't understand this so you must teach him that he goes out of the home to pee and poop.

2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck Heater Blowing Cold Air

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

Here are a few things you can check:

  1. A common problem in these trucks is blend door failure. You aren't receiving any hot air inside the truck.
  2. On YouTube there is a video that can show you how to test this to see if this is your problem.
  3. https://www.you  ch?v=52K8c0ENMFw
  4. Another thing you can check which is common in your case is check your coolant. Make sure there isn't a leak and the coolant isn't getting into your lines.
  5. This leak can be very small and you won't see coolant on the ground. Just check all your hoses and make sure none of them are wet.
  6. Also check the door that opens up to your heater core that blocks off your evaporator core.
  7. Try moving these settings to see if the hot air will now pass through.
  8. Also check the motor to the heater and make sure it is working and there aren't any teeth broken.
  9. Check you Blend door bar. A lot of time if you can move this up or down you will feel heat coming out of your heater unit.

Repairing the Leg on a Chair

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

To repair your leg on your chair.

  1. You basically will put the leg back on the chair like the manufacture did.
  2. Inset the leg into the chair.
  3. Before you do this remove the other bolts from the chair first.
  4. See how long the screws are. You are going to need new screws that are twice this size.
  5. You can measure the screws and the wood and make sure the screws you buy will go into the wood of the chair at least 1/2 through the wood.
  6. Now use your electric drill and the same holes that are already there and put the new screws into the wood.
  7. I would buy enough screws to replace all the existing screws in your chair.
  8. If these screws are too short then the rest of them will be the same.
  9. It is better to secure all the legs at once to make sure another one doesn't fall off and the wood doesn't spllt on the leg like it has in your image.

An easy online search for "porcelain doll values" will produce many answers. Keep in mind that just because a doll may be fancy, old, inherited, etc., it most probably has little value as most are mass produced in the thousands and very often include the rather misleading term limited edition in their names and may also have an essentially worthless certificate of authenticity. A doll's condition is extremely important in considering value-the best doll prices are paid for dolls literally never removed from their boxes.

Weekly Errands Master List

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

I use sticky notes on my bathroom mirror for appointments etc. that I don't want to miss. This works better for me than on the fridge as I look at the mirror every morning when I brush my hair. The fridge door has so much stuff on it that anything posted there will probably be missed! When it is time for the appointment the note is attached to the list of places to go and things to buy that I made up the night before.

Hard Water Stains on Auto Glass

October 20, 20171 found this helpful

All different answers here! Sadly, none of them worked for me. I have Marvin Windows which rot, but that is another story. Can't use even a green scrubber pad on these awful Marvin windows as the teeniest, tiny abrasive scratches them forever.

Step 1
But the list inspired me.

Step 2
After trying most of the remedies with absolutely no results...I even tried hydrogen peroxide.

Step 3
Then I had a ureka moment. Maybe lime could be the antidote to hard or mineral water stains. After all, it's in one of those cleaning products you pay for that contains mostly water.

Step 4
I have a 40 pound bag of powdered lime in the garage. You know the kind you put on your garden? It cost about $4 last spring at that big store everyone complains about but frequents due to the prices.

Step 5
I put some powdered lime in a mason jar with a little water and stirred with a chopstick to make a paste. You can stir with whatever you want, but this is a good excuse to get Chinese food!

Step 6
The paste tends to harden up after a while, but just add more water. I rubbed it around on a small area of spotting. It doesn't have to go on thick, the paste is just a method for getting the lime to stick on the window.

Step 7
It was about time for my mid morning coffee break so I did that.

Step 8
When I came back, I used a soft rag to buff off the dried lime. To my shock and amazement, the glass was spot free and shinny as a new penny! And, no window scratches! The area I hadn't treated stood out with nasty spots.

Step 9
Here are a few things you might want to know.

Step 10
I used disposable gloves when handling the lime and paste, and even the buffing. Be careful to avoid inhaling the lime before you put water on it.

Step 11
Don't use pelletized lime unless it makes a paste, if you spread particles from the pellets on your windows, you may scratch them.

Step 12
I used damp paper towels to spread the paste. The lime will harden on the towel very quickly. I just dumped it back in the jar. Don't put the paper towels in the trash, put them in your compost or bury them in your garden. If you use rags to buff...you can use paper towels for this as well..wash the rags at an outside faucet. I am not sure what lime does to the benificial microbes if you have a septic system.

Step 13
It works much better if you apply the paste and let it sit a while. If some of the spots don't come off on the first go, try again. I did that and it worked. Maybe I didn't get enough lime on them the first time.

Step 14
I would be thrilled to hear how it works for others as this is the first time I have posted on a site like this. Good luck!

Where to Find Ballard's Corn Meal

October 20, 20170 found this helpful

Yes, and Martha White used to have Ballard cornbread mix but they stopped making it which stinks. But you can mix Martha white mix with Morrison's Corn Kits brand make in Texas and have a cornbread similar to the old fashion Ballards. I think it is a shame that Martha White bought out Ballard and stopped packaging it. I would love for someone to come up the exact receipt. I hope your dad got to eat his cornbread. My Dad wanted gingerbread like his grandmother used to make I can not remember how many receipts i tried till I got it right. Would love some good old fashion Ballard Corn bread.

Child Refuses to Wear Underwear and Other Clothing Items

October 19, 20170 found this helpful

I realize this is an old thread but...A person can have sensory processing disorder without being on the spectrum, although it can be one of a number of spectrum characteristics. SPD is also more prevalent in those with generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. It is not attention seeking behavior and to treat it as such and reprimand or shame a child who has this disorder risks alienating a child already struggling. These kids have a visceral reaction and it's usually an ongoing issue, although it may get worse with increased anxiety. This post reminds me that we have a long way to go in recognizing and treating neurological and mental health issues in our children and stop treating them so dismissively.

Tiny Black Biting Bugs

October 19, 20170 found this helpful

That is very true ,tea tree oil used to work for a while then it seems as like had no affect ,I heard mouth wash helps so I tryed it and it worked for about a week,I have now been rubbing a tiny bit of Colgate with a drop or two of water after a shower and it's working,not sure if it's something in the toothpaste or if it's the sticky part that limits their ability to move around ,my bites are.mostly on my face,also sometimes glitter particles, and when it's a bad outbreak I can see red blue and white fibers ,I know it sounds crazy ,but it's usually only one color on one outbreak and another color when ever inexperience another bad out break.And I HAVE LEARNED THE MORE YOU MESS WITH THEM,LIKE TRYING TO PLUCK IT OUT THE MORE INTENSE THEY WILL START TO MOVE AROUND ,I heard thousands of people have it,I'm just hoping someone finds a cure ,because I could feel my health slowly getting bad,working out and eating healthy does work but doesn't get rid of them it just minimises the bad outbreaks and the itching,I have been itching for 2 years it's hard because you don't want to make it obvious in public or on business meetings,if anyone has any tips or remedies please let me know,You just have to stay positive and don't let the circumstances convince you that you are crazy, something bad is spreading and I believe it's man made.

Caring for African Violets

October 19, 20170 found this helpful

African violets love lots of light, but direct sun is hard on them and will scorch their leaves. They do really good in a north window, or a window with a shade tree filtering the sunlight, or even a grow light if you don't have enough sunlight available. They also like their soil to be damp. Direct watering causes them to get leaf rot, so they really like a violet pot(a special planter that has 2 pots: 1 for the water, and 1 that sits inside it that holds the soil and the plant), or if you have a regular pot, water it from the bottom, or else use a water globe that you fill and it sticks down into the soil to water it from below. There is also an African violet food that comes in drop form that I like to give mine every now and then. When your blooms fade, remove them to give your plant the strength to keep going. If you give your plants the things it likes as mentioned above, then it will bloom it's heart out for you and will bloom all year round. Sometimes I like to start new ones for family or friends. You can do this by removing a leaf and poking a toothpick through it to hold it up, put it in a glass of water with the leaf base just in the water and place it in a sunny window for a week or so. When you have a few roots started, plant your new baby plant in the same kind of pot and treat them the same as you do the mother plant.

Getting Rid of Fleas in a Flat

October 19, 20170 found this helpful

One thing that fleas do not like is eucalyptus. You could use the essential oil in a diffuser, or even place sachets throughout your dwelling. I find that the smell of eucalyptus is a lot more pleasant than dealing with fleas, but that is my own personal preference. They also do not like black walnut leaves. When other products did not work, my mom would find someone with a black walnut tree and get some leaves, placing them in strategic locations throughout(like under couch/sofa cushions, in cupboards etc.) We never had flea trouble as long as we used these methods and they are a lot less toxic than sprays and bombs.
