January 29, 20240 found this helpful

i have a mixed lab and i know for certain that he is mixed and if you look at his palate it is all black everywhere. actually i have 4 dogs and one is a pure female retreiver with papers that says she is a pure breed and yes she does not have her palate as black a the lab none pure bred, she has a little pinkish spot and not as dark palate like the lab. so not sure if the full black palate thing is a myth or not.

Getting Rid of Tiny White Bugs?

January 28, 20240 found this helpful

I have these small white bugs in my RV. Contrary to many of the responses here they are not bed bugs, dust mites or fungus knats. They seem to go through a regular life cycle...tiny white eggs, larvae, fly. The eggs are tough and hard to damage like the shell is armor. Very small, I have a hand held 25x magnifying loupe and can only see them clearly with that. Otherwise they look like salt only smaller. The larvae are also white, get into hair, eyes, nose, ears. I have felt them in my mouth in the morning - I think they work thier way down my eustacian(sp) tubes. I now use ear plugs at night that seem to keep them out of my ears. I'm thinking of trying swim goggles too keep them out of my eyes at night.

I have searched through out the rv for a female/queen, no luck. They seem to also reside in my scrotum and anus leading me to believe that I am the host. Washing and only using fresh clothes are slight deterrents but they keep comming back. Seem to be primarily in my bedding even though I wash all my clothes and bedding in hot water with detergent AND Borax then dry at highest temperature. All provide minimal, temporary relief until the next brood hatches. I vac constantly and pick them up or even pull the fly phase out of the air with the vac. They dont really fly but seem to only float along. All I've tried works, but only temporarily, they keep coming back. Not able to sleep much. Constantly scratching. Very annoying. Effecting my mood and attitude. I have bombed the RV multiple times and they come back. Life cycle seems pretty regular and repeating. Any help would be appreciated.

Also others describing the same/similar things, you are not crazy or imagining these things, move on from anyone that tells you that you are. Working every day to figure this out. Seem to have them controled to my bedding and clothes.

One thing I've found that provides at least temporary relief in the crotch and anus is to wash with 91% isopropyl alcohol. Works but they jump back on from clothes or bedding. Also the alcohol is very drying on the skin. Good luck. If I find any answers I will post. Please do the same.

Bleach Tablet Stuck in Toilet?

January 28, 20240 found this helpful

I went through the same issue with a bleach tablet going down the pipes. My tablet was not near the toilet, it went further down into the pipe and got stuck, too far down to get to, and blocked both the toilet and shower flow. I didn't use chemicals (though we did pour drano down there before realizing what it was) but once we realized it was the bleach tablet, we stopped because mixing bleach with other chemicals is dangerous. We tried the hot water, but because it was so far, I had to do it an unspeakable amount of times because the line was already backed up with cold water and I couldn't use boiling water for fear of cracking the bowl. So I had to keep pouring and plunging until the water coming up into the shower was warm, that's how I knew I got into contact with it finally.
I can tell you that PATIENCE is going to be your best friend here. It took us four agonizing days of plunging and running hot water (I also poured dawn dish detergent as well) down the drain to finally just hear it dissolve enough to clear the line and the toilet flush. We were most fortunate that there was no waste in the line when this happened, so I understand if you have that and can't wait, or if it's your only bathroom. But if you can, try working with it for a few days. The constant warm water and plunging will eventually make the tablet dissolve enough to clear the line. I still ran more hot water so it could be completely gone after it became unlodged as well. Good luck!

Could Blue Jay Have Attacked Cat?

January 24, 20240 found this helpful

I noticed a I later realized beak-shaped loss of hair on my cats side. Had no idea what it could be. Around the triangle she was bruised and tender too. Then a neighbor with a bird feeder told me Susan actually KILLED a Blue Jay that attacked her as she watched her favorite show: Birdies At a Feeder. Susan was a fierce huntress when she was let outside! (No more, because we moved.). But in her play, she is quick and ferocious! Bet the Jay fought like hell. Wish I got a Jay feather. To honor the dead. So yeah, Blue Jays attack.

Sara Beck is my mother. She started making dolls for my sister and myself in the late 70s when money was tight and was surprised to find that people wanted to buy them. The doll you have is one of her earliest. She sold them in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Alabama at craft fairs and at consignment stores through the early 2000s. I can't speak to value. Hope this helps.

Fudge For One

January 21, 20240 found this helpful

I made this last night for the first time, and was surprised how delicious it was!! I did reduce the amount of butter to 1/2 T. and added a dash of salt. Today I made it again with those same modifications and also added a couple Tbs. finely chopped pecans. I had no problem with the candy setting up. In fact, the pecans I used today were refrigerated so they caused it to harden up so quickly that I didn't get a smooth finish on top. Thanks for sharing your recipe. It's so quick and easy, I will be making it often.

Is Salt Flea Treatment Safe For Ferrets?

January 21, 20240 found this helpful

No its not safe at all!! The only safe flea treatment needs to be prescribed or done by an experienced exotic veterinarian. Pyrenthins which are common in a lot of flea treatments pet stores and Walmart sells have this ingredient in it. Its not safe. Fipronil is but its gotta be the correct dosage. Please dont put anything on your ferrets that you dont ask your vet about its safety. So many things marketed towards ferrets in pet stores are actually dangerous and can be toxic and even fatal for them.

I found a hand carved sofa and chair at a garage sale. The sofa had been used by a man who worked on cars in the garage and was crusted with black stuff. I planned to reupholster but before that I wanted to get the crud off and didn't want to strip the finish because it had a nice patina. I tried all kinds of kind and gentle cleaning products for wood to no avail and finally used the hand cleaner Gojo in the orange bottle thinking it wouldn't be too drying and it gets crud off of men's hands right? It worked beautifully and didn't hurt the natural coloring of the wood! I used a marker for some damage that was there on a small spot like you did. I followed with tung oil which completely restored a nice satin antique finish! Tung oil is my preferred to go to - I hate polyurethane - tung oil is more forgiving to work with, you can work on a section at a time and it goes quickly because you coat brief wait then buff off excess, it is easier for work on carved surfaces like the sofa and chair. The sofa and chair are in my living room and look great after more than 20 years since I rescued them! After having a cat jump onto the last coat of polyurethane on an antique piece that went deep into the prior coats requiring me to start over - never again!
