Happy Update. So Im so happy to say that all the bugs are gone! I put Diatomaceous powder all over everything and rubbed it in to make sure I got all the cracks holes ect,wrapped it with plastic drop cloth and taped it shut for 7 days. Wow when I unwrapped it I was so surprised how many dead bugs there was. I tried to vacuum it up but with rubbing it in and the humidity It was impossible but I did get the loose part off and then hosed it down really well. I was still a little apprehensive so 2 days later of periodically checking I felt confident that they were gone. So I brought the pieces in and put it on a white sheet and every now and again I would tap on the pieces and I can say that the pietism bug free! Thank yall so much for all your advice it was so very much appreciated!

Can I Get a Perm On Colour Treated Hair?


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

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.

Did you look for the serial number label? It should be located on the back or the inside of the case, and it should be a "foil-like" label. The serial number might also have been recorded in the owner's booklet.
The serial number will give the year of manufacture as the first two digits.

Here is a listing for your exact clock, giving list price as $2152.50 and sale price of $1291.50:

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.

Shipping Mugs

August 1, 20210 found this helpful

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. They are light, so if mailing it doesn't add to weight. Unlike newsprint, they so not leave ink on what you wrap in them. And, unlike toilet paper we don't pay for them. (Not a criticism, just a note of interest. We do take them to the store for recycling, and I make "Plarn" out of them to crochet tote bags out of.)

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.

Webster Dictionary Misprint?


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

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'.

Value of Vintage Cabbage Patch Kid?


Bronze Post Medal for 2021. 31 Posts
July 31, 20210 found this helpful

Cabbage Patch Kids were the brainchildren of Xavier Roberts, who originally sold the hand-crafted "Little People" though his nascent corporation, Original Appalachian Artworks, with the help of four other artists. In 1976, Xavier Roberts met Martha Nelson Thomas at a craft fair. As a 21 year old art student, Xavier Roberts rediscovers "needle molding" a German technique for fabric sculpture from the early 1800s. Combining his interest in sculpture with the quilting skills passed down from his mother, Xavier creates his first soft-sculptures. He asked Martha Nelson Thomas to supply him with dolls to sell in Georgia, where he lived and worked Thomas briefly let him sell her Doll Babies, but stopped. Thomas sued Roberts and won an undisclosed amount after the case was settled out of court. Roberts traveled from state to state in the southeastern United States attending craft fairs and folk art exhibitions. At them, he began selling these Chinese crafted dolls. Roberts created his own version in 1978 (source "Custody fight over Cabbage Patch dolls". Christian Science Monitor. 1983-12-12. Retrieved 2020-04-17.) He won awards for his work, including a first-place ribbon for a doll named Dexter at the Osceola Craft Show in Florida in 1978. Roberts sold the license to Coleco in 1982 and when Cabbage Patch Kids made their debut in 1983, they became the most popular toy fad of the year, and one of the most popular in all of the '80s. You can read the story here cabbagepatchkids.com/.../our-history

You have described your doll as a "blue eyed bald baby doll". Here is a doll similar to your description: Cabbage Patch Kid Baby Boy Bald No Hair Blue Eyes, but this is a 1985 doll (the license was already sold to Coleco at the time), price $ 24.99 www.ebay.com/.../133804100965. Another Cabbage Patch Kid Baby Doll Boy Bald Blue Eyes Signed Coleco 1985 Soft Body www.ebay.com/.../284391010113, priced at $ 15.99 (originally priced at $ 19.99).
I found 1978, 1982 ORIGINAL APPALACHIAN ARTWORKS CABBAGE PATCH KIDS www.worthpoint.com/.../vintage-1978-1982-original-1837485031
Since you indicate the year 1976, 1982, a small number of such dolls (Original Appalachian Artworks) were produced during this period, so this is a really rare doll and its price should be higher? maybe $50. "The very first Cabbage Patch Kids (called Little People) had soft bodies and large thumbs. Later versions had plastic bodies and regular sized digits. Older dolls also had woollen hair as opposed to the synthetic strands on newer versions. And not all of them are worth hundreds of dollars but some definitely are." www.bhg.com.au/how-much-is-your-cabbage-patch-doll...
It is also important to know what condition your doll is in. A photograph would really help determine the price more accurately. Try to auction your doll.

It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing skin itching, it can be a common allergic reaction to skin care products or some kind of medication. But some rashes are a sign of something more serious.

You do not write how you feel. If you have a fever or pain accompanying the rash, then it could be a sign that you have an infection or are experiencing an allergic reaction. This is a reason to seek medical attention.

You rash started about 1 month ago - this is really long. This is another reason to visit doctor.

Rashes that start to blister should send you straight to the doctors office too, unless you have good reason to suspect youve come in contact with poison ivy.

Or maybe you have Impetigo.
Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection. Symptoms include red, itchy sores that break open and leak a clear fluid or pus for a few days. Next, a crusty yellow or "honey-colored" scab forms over the sore, which then heals without leaving a scar.

But only a doctor can accurately answer this question.

Puppy Sick After Parvo Shot?


Bronze Post Medal for 2021. 31 Posts
July 31, 20210 found this helpful

It is not unusual for a puppy to feel a little unwell after receiving vaccinations, but these reactions rarely require treatment. Most symptoms will pass in 12-24 hours. If your puppy continues to feel bad and further, then please phone your veterinarian and describe what you are seeing. You will be advised whether or not to bring the dog in to be examined.
Even if the vaccine does work, it will not protect your puppy from parvo immediately. It usually requires ten to fourteen days before a reasonable level of protection is established.

But sometimes the vaccine may not work.
Exposure to the virus can play a role in vaccine failure. If your puppy comes into contact with the virus, he will develop an immune response. These antibodies can block the vaccine. Don't expose your puppy to areas where he might catch parvo. These areas include dog parks, pet stores, dog hotels and kennels, veterinary clinic (the most likely place to be exposed to parvo). Instead, keep your puppy close to home. Wait to visit parvo hotspots until your puppy is old enough for the shots to work.

Vaccines can also fail when your puppy is sick or stressed. When his immune system is compromised, he can't build an immune response. Vaccine failure can also happen in puppies with suppressed immune systems. Medications like steroids or antibiotics, deworming, poor nutrition put stress on your puppy's ability to protect and heal himself.
When your dog is stressed - which is very likely in the first few weeks he is with you - his body will be using up important resources to feed his stress hormones - Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, Zinc. If your puppy is low on these important nutrients before the parvovirus vaccine is administered, his immune system may not respond the way it should. And this is critical to building up the antibodies that will protect him for life.

Titer tests determine whether your puppy has developed antibodies or not. If there is antibody in their blood test, then puppies are immune from the virus for a very long time. But be sure to wait at least 3 weeks before running the titer. Otherwise, the vaccine could inhibit titer levels until the immune system adjusts.

Puppy with Parvo?

Puppies ages six weeks to six months are the most susceptible to parvo. There is no cure for parvo. The severity of parvo cases varies. The stress of weaning can lead to a more severe case of parvo n puppies, as stress weakens the immune system.
Puppies and adult dogs with parvo start shedding the virus within 4-to-5 days of exposure.

You have to make sure that your puppy gets adequate nutrition. Feed and water him if he does not want to eat himself.
I think your vet put your puppy on an antibiotic medication to combat these bacterial infections. Call your vet and ask his opinion. Your vet have to monitor your puppy for additional complications.

Most puppies that survive the first three-to-four days make a complete recovery. Recovery times vary depending on the severity of the case, but it usually takes approximately one week for puppies to recover from parvo. One of the first signs that a dog is recovering from parvovirus is when he stops vomiting blood or foamy, yellow bile, stop drooling or foaming at the mouth.

Be patient and make sure your puppy is getting high protein foods, fluids and medications on a regular basis. And carefully monitor his condition so that if his condition worsens, immediately take him to the veterinarian.

Here are some suggestions.
1. Wrap rubber bands around the lid where the gasket would have gone.
2. Make your own gasket with flexible polymer clay.
3. Make your own gasket with flexible silicone caulk.
4. Replace the wooden lid with a glass lid which you can decorate with old fashioned decals, or decoupage the glass lid yourself. Glass lids from pots are easy to find in secondhand shops.
5. You can buy gasket cord on eBay, cut it to size and glue the ends together.
Good luck. It's a pretty cookie jar.

Your piece has a very unusual design. I have been looking for a piece that looks a bit like yours for quite some time. I found a dresser similar to yours www.vinterior.co/.../1910s-chippendale-venetian-baroque..., www.1stdibs.com/.../?epik=dj0yJnU9UlBEc1FaZ2Z1SnRWTjRrYXhBY3BpVGZpVkNETmE5c08mcD0wJm49OE1fNFFUNTl5cy0wY2dQOHRvblk3ZyZ0PUFBQUFBR0VGcjUw.
This Dresser is from the Venetian 1910s Chippendale-Baroque Revival bedroom set by Testolini and Salviati www.1stdibs.com/.../?epik=dj0yJnU9UlBEc1FaZ2Z1SnRWTjRrYXhBY3BpVGZpVkNETmE5c08mcD0wJm49OE1fNFFUNTl5cy0wY2dQOHRvblk3ZyZ0PUFBQUFBR0VGcjUw. This bedroom set is in carved walnut, burl walnut applied, polished with wax, top bedside tables and dresser in Imperial gray marble. The dimensions of the Dresser: H 96 + 87 x W 156 x D 58. Compare the dimensions with your piece. Your piece has different handles and no marble, but the designs and shapes are very similar. Most likely this company made the same bedroom sets of different variants, using different wood. I think you have a dresser and it also had a marble cover to which a mirror was attached, and then the mirror was removed along with the marble cover. Or maybe someone copied this design, but I did not find anything else that even a little bit similar to this piece. Therefore, you need to examine your piece again. I hope that you have already looked for a manufacturer's marks or at least some inscriptions at your piece (I have already come across cases here when people asking to find at least some information did not bother to carefully examine the items of interest to them, which, as a result, had labels with identifying information). Check if there is suddenly plywood or particle board somewhere. These materials were not used in furniture making until the 1930s.

So you have a Chippendale-Baroque Revival dresser, it should have had a mirror. Presumably Venetian 1910s Chippendale-Baroque Revival dresser by Testolini and Salviati. The price of 1910s Chippendale Venetian Baroque Revival Bedroom Set in Carved Walnut in excellent conditionis is $58,100.83 (per set). Your dresser doesn't have a mirror, but even so, its price won't be low if it really is from the 1910s. Therefore, consult a specialist to find out the age of your dresser.

Identifying a Jewelry Hallmark?


Bronze Post Medal for 2021. 31 Posts
July 31, 20210 found this helpful

In America, articles marked Sterling must contain a minimum of 925 parts silver for every 1000 parts of material. Expressed another way, items must be 92.5 percent silver and no more than 7.5 percent base metal. This ratio is called the "sterling standard" and has been used in the US since the mid-1860s. The numeric 925 is the millesimal expression of the 925/1000 standard.
The vast majority of qualifying items made in the US ca. 1860 to 1970 especially items made before 1940 are marked Sterling or Sterling Silver. Many vintage marks, but far from all, include the name of the manufacturer. Very rarely are qualifying pieces of American silver from those years marked only 925. Rarer still, are American marks which include sterling and 925 together without a company name. This doesn't mean all pieces marked Sterling or Sterling Silver old. But it is a general rule that virtually all pieces marked 925 or Sterling 925 are modern.
So the mark Sterling on your bracelet just means that you have a vintage 92.5 percent silver bracelet. The manufacturer of your bracelet can be identified only by the second hallmark. If this is the name of the manufacturer, then it is very illegible. But sometimes, when hallmarks are applied to jewelry, the pattern / inscription is distorted.

Your bracelet design reminded me of Bell Trading Post jewelry. There are images of arrows on their decorations. Your bracelet also has an arrow-like pattern on the sides.
Bell Trading Post was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1932 by Jack Michelson and his wife Mildred. They sold southwest style jewelry at various tourist locations in the United States. Bell Trading Post got its name from Jack's wife, whose maiden name was Bell. Here you can read the history of this company estatesintime.com/.../
The types of jewelry sold by Bell Trading Post included sterling silver, nickel silver, gold, and copper. They put the word sterling in a font similar to your bracelet. They had several options for stamps. "Over the years numerous hallmarks were used on items sold by Bell Trading Post and Sunbell. The hallmarks typically included the image of a bell or that of an arrow sign post with a bell sign hanging from it. Shown here are just a few of Bell Trading Post's hallmarks." nativeamericanjewelrytips.wordpress.../.../ Sometimes this hallmark was applied very clearly, but I saw jewelry from this company with a very distorted hallmarks, for example, like here at the third bracelet: www.worthpoint.com/.../turquoise-bracelets-bell-trading... Your bracelet may also have a very distorted Bell Trading Post hallmark.
I have looked through a large number of stamps and I have not found anything more similar.
