When my husband was trying to unclog it the other day it's almost like something is crystallized on the inside of the pipe
Your recipe is similar to this one www.theprairiehomestead.com/
Are you using thick toilet paper for flushable wipes or makeup remover wipes? Those things can clog up any plumbing system.
My husband added to carefully check the older ones to see if they are the original pressing. He also suggested checking each one on Discogs to see what they recommend as the value. It will be difficult to rate the condition yourself but it can give you a better ballpark.
For example, the album you have on top: His Hand In Mine is listed as being worth between $1.25 and $5.25, with several being sold currently at about $1.
My husband and I go vinyl shopping pretty often and I would see records like this for maybe $5-10. The value is going to be determined a lot by the condition of the vinyl and the sleeve. It looks to me that they were well loved and played so the value could be decreased by that wear and tear. But if you have some rare albums, that price could be better.
I would take them to a vinyl record store and see what they suggest. If you don't have one in your local area, look for one in your nearest large city. You can check online but that will only give you a ball park estimate.
Good luck and let us know what you find out.
YOUR ALBUMS ARE REALLY NOT WORTH ANYTHING THEY ARE OBSOLETE.
Most of them are worth under $50, but some have auctioned off for more. Here is an article that shows some selling prices over 10 years ago: www.thoughtco.com/
Sounds like thrips to me. They're a plant pest, but they will bite humans by mistake and cause an itchy or painful welt. They like dark, humid crevices. Some can fly a little, very badly. They're hard to get rid of, but don't spread any human diseases.
Hello ! I am a great fan of white vinegar for cleaning nearly everything in the house, but I got a bit over enthusiast and cleaned a crystal made glass and a glass made glass with white vinegar. The two had lost a bit of brightness because of limestone. The two glasses where ruined in a second, and no long rinsing with water or use of others products gave them back their brightness. They are not transparent and shining anymore and look as if they had contained flour. Since then, I learned that crystal glass, and sometimes glass, and specially antique glasses, contain a certain amount of lead and that it is the chemical reaction of lead to vinegar (acetic acid in fact) that gave this horrible result. I, now, always check the percentage of acetic acid written on the bottle of vinegar and dilute vinegar with water accordingly, and to be sure I always use pickling vinegar only for cleaning glasses as it is already diluted.
I love typewriters! There are a number of how to videos on YouTube so maybe one of these can help you:
If not, there are still typewriter repair shops around the US. I have a list somewhere I can dig up if you tell me where you are located.
Another poster recently said that Smith Corona no longer supports anything related to typewriters. How sad is that.
I love the sound of a typewriter so much, I have used it for one of my cell phone alerts!!
Post back what you learn and if a video helped, which one!
I would contact customer support at their website: www.smithcorona.com/

These are Chinese Heritage dolls...if memory serves they were made in the 40s-60s (the cello pack dolls were popular in this era).
They made a lot of them in a number of varieties. There are a few samples of what is on ebay at the moment and while none are an exact match to your lovely, it gives you a general idea of their value, which is (if you click over to sold because sold price is the only thing I find that is a true picture of value) between $5 and $15 each.
This link is for active auctions. Once you are there you can click to the left for Completed/Sold.
It is sad but there is just not a lot of demand for these dolls and because they were made NOT to be played with (SAD TO ME) there are a lot still around. The dolls that have the most value in today's market are the truly OLD and played with dolls that have survived enough that a doll restorer will give them a new life. Those kind of dolls I have sold from $40 on up into the high $500s.
I hope you can find a child who will love and enjoy her and play with her!! Dolls were meant to be loved, not displayed!!
This looks like a mass-produced doll that is worth maybe $20.
Boy was I having a bad day that day...I messed everything up. Yes, here is the link:
My apologies for the kerfluffles!! Here's to a better day!
Pghgirl40 do you have a link for that listing. I searched, but could not find it :(
Thank you for the link! :)
Its been years and years since I have grown spices (rosemary, dill, parsley, sage, mints, basil, and thyme) and this does not look like any of the varieties I am familiar with (but I know there are dozens and dozens and many would never be found in cold old Pgh) so I only know those I know.
So with this one, my question is does it grow in a bush? If so, it looks like juniper. Which around here is a decorative bush used in a lot of landscaping.
I know some people like the berries (I have never tried them), but I have never heard of anyone using the leaves. They smell really nice though. Hardy plants.
There are dozens of varieties of juniper so you may want to do a Google images search and match yours with the pix to figure out if this is indeed what you have.
Post back what you learn.
It could be a type of rosemary
I may be the outlier here, but I use expired toothpaste for brushing my teeth. Unless it tastes bad or has changed consistency (and I have never had either happen), it works just fine. I have not (now I should not say this out loud to jinx myself), had a new cavity in many decades and I was just at the dentist yesterday. Expiration dates are important, so I use them for guidance, NOT as an absolute. But that is just thrifty old me :) Best wishes for a lovely smile :)
You can use it to fill in holes in the wall before you paint.
You can use toothpaste as a cleaner in many areas of your home. Here's a few ideas: clean soap scum from shower door and sink, clean mirrors, restore shine to copper bottom pots, clean silverware and jewelry and use it to remove crayon or marker from walls or wood
There is a safety switch under the seat that will only let the mower start if someone is sitting on it. Disconnect it and re-connect it.
Use olive oil to moisten the towel, let sit for half an hour and peel off.

Many times the bobbin is inserted backwards. Easy fix.
This place does veils, too:
This place does it.
I do this but put mine in the oven when I turn it off so that they don't smell when kept waiting for Spring.I'll be starting to plant out in a week or two and I have all Winter's egg shells waiting.

Cows are herbivores while cats and dogs are carnivores therefore the excretions differ.
You are likely to need your Vet for this issue. It may be a hormonal issue or a dominance issue or both. Look for any changes in your home that may be causing these males to become more aggressive. Do you have neighborhood cats that visit and can be challenging your older male cats? This is a very common problem and can make male cats more aggressive. You may need to block their view or discourage visiting cats. I set out a game camera one night and was amazed at how many critters visited my front porch. My cat of course saw them all.
There are so many ways in which you can save money on your video games. Look out for promos and discounts and search for those sites who give you amazing discounts like www.press-start.com/de. Earn reward points by playing various games and redeem those points whenever necessary. On almost every game there is a free trial of that game so first plays a particular game's free trial and if you find that game interesting then buy it otherwise don't.
It usually works out given a little time...like a month or more. You can expect some hissing and growling and they may avoid each other for awhile. You need to keep an eye on them so there is no serious fighting. Things you can do to help is to give each cat some good quality time with you. Make sure they each have their own space with their beds and dishes and litter box. Try feeding them within sight of one another. this makes them feel like family. Try to have some perches where they can get up and away from each other. This lowers their anxiety level.
I'm going to be real for a min... I was looking for a lint free T.P. because I just can't stand it when certain bra d's leave behind little balls of lint on my lady bits.. eeeewww.. I mean c'mon, the ones that brag about being super soft are the worst.. I agree, nothing with a C is a good rule.. Lol. I typically go for Angel Soft only because it's not super expensive and it works how I would expect a toilet paper to work... idk why guys tend to get that fluffy crap... lol.. I just told my boyfriend I would appreciate a different brand at his place and he was very receptive after I explained the dilemma.. happy hunting. I gave my opinion in hopes it may help others.
Hey there- can i ask you a question?
Im a little newer in this carpet cleaning thing
I have a hot water (mytee heater) estraction system- (naamco 400psi dual motor) with 50 hoses.
I prespray my soap solution using the machines pump and an in-line sprayer...
Id like to switch to laundry detergent-
do you have any advice for me?
My machine REALLY doesnt like dealing with foam in the recovery tank- it just defaults to sucking the overflow protection float up over and over-
Of course- no mainstream cleaning supply co. Is giving ke any positive feedback- not when they can sell me a 30-40 dollar bottle of something in their shelf....
Sweet little face!!
I see lab, beagle, and terrier lines and features or as we call them, Heinz 57 pups!!
The vet may see things in the jaw, teeth, hips and bones that give a better guestimate.
Wishing you a lovely life together!
The body looks like a pitbull to me.
Double check with your pcp to make sure there is not an underlying health issue. Thyroid issues often cause hair loss the bleaching may not be the culprit at all or it could have just exasperated things. Diabetes and other health challenges can also cause hair loss/damage. Safely first!!
Post back with what you learn! Healing prayers!!
The best thing to do is moisturize your hair very heavily. Not regular conditioner, but a protein treatment . It might be a little more expensive. Good luck! P.S. It'll be fine. Hang in there!
You may have damaged your hair, your scalp, or both. Leave your hair alone. Do not use any heat tools on your hair until it begins to recover.
These are sweet! I remember them well! We used to sell House of Lloyd items like hotcakes around various holidays--esp. Easter.
Sadly, they made millions and millions of pieces so they did not hold their value in today's market. While I would need to find an exact set to give you the exact value (if you can find one that sold), generally these items, even in boxes, fetch under $10 in most settings, less at a yard sale, maybe a little more on Etsy.
They look adorable when displayed so enjoy them!! That was what they were made for! To be enjoyed!!
I love your "Easter" bunnies !!
Try a search on "Google" put all the info you can find, maker/model/number/description and see what they come up with.
Also go on eBay and see if there is similar like for sale, it will give you a general idea on what they are worth.
Most of their figurines go for $20 or less on eBay and Etsy. i think this one is in that price range, also.
I also use Sally Hansen's product and it works very well. I leave it on for 10 minutes and then take it off with paper towels and warm water. I never have a burning sensation. I think it is a good product.

Just got my upper partial today and THERE'S a gap between the partial and my pilate also I his when I talk and I sound like Donald duck. Tried to eat and food was in the partial. Only took 2 bites
Will you be able to do the shirt?
You can call or visit a Sears Service Center and tell them what you need. They should have all the information on your Kenmore product and can supply you with any part you need.
They will also be able to tell you what brand of machine your Kenmore is so you will be able to find what you need by both or either brand name (Kenmore is only the Sears name not the company that made it for Sears).
I did do a search on eBay and did find a Q foot and needle pack for Kenmore sewing machine for sale. I am not sure if that is what you are looking for. Do a search of your own and see what you come up with.
Good luck !!
Hello, I have had zero luck reviving dried out wipes of any type.
You could try asking their customer services team:
Perhaps they have a good ideas for this. Nothing has worked for me though :( and I end up using them with a spray from a bottle or can (which defeats the purpose).
Let me know what you learn!! Best wishes!
Thank you for your time, I, unfortunately, live in PA, so I probably won't get much for it. I'll do further research, maybe I can find some more info about it. Thank you.
Post back what you learn! These are really neat dolls!!
Thank you so much for your insight and tips. I will do some more research to see what I can find. I appreciate the link to the company site, too!
I use cookie cooling racks also. Another thing to consider is to clean your equipment of dust by vacuuming the fans. My laptop kept overheating until someone said to get the dust out in the fans, lots of dust bunnies there that caused the problem.
I bought a house about a year ago and have already gotten rid of 5 copperheads all over 3 feet long! Once you see them you will not forget what they look like. They have markings that look like Hershey kisses on the sides and eyes and head that is unforgettable.
Air layering will be fine. But cutting is easier and faster.
That is funny about the potatoes, because you're such a versatile cook, and these will be a cinch for you, and then you'll be hearing: When are you going to make these potatoes again? haha
I'm glad you're going to make them, and really, anything can go in them too :)
Your statement is not very clear as to how long this has been in your family so it is difficult to tell how you know that it is "at least 70 years old". Without solid provenance it is difficult to date something like this (no markings).
Trying to place a value on an item like this is truly difficult unless you are an expert in the field.
Ya know just because someone can afford a dog doesn't mean that finances don't change for people and then when they need to help their animal that is why they come to sites like this to find home remedies to help their fur baby. So please don't be so judgemental.
You might need to take the throat plate off and clean any dust, thread and fabric out.
That is a great idea thanks!!
They eat clothing. Some feces from insects leave yellow spots. Yellow spots can also be caused by sunscreen
I have recently read postings from appraisers and they are saying almost the same as Pghgirl states; the market is glutted with all brands of china and they are saying at least 90% of china (and maybe even more) has little to no true value. It is becoming even more difficult to sell high end brands at low prices.
They seem to think it is due to two things:
1.) Younger generation does not want to be burdened with the kinda stuff their parents and grandparents had. They are happy with dishwasher safe stoneware and the likes - even paper most of the time.
2.) The middle and older generations are selling all this stuff to bolster up their Social Security and/or add to their fixed income. They no longer have any use for all this stuff and their children/grandchildren do not want it (or they immediately try to sell if it is inherited.. Or - leaving it in an old house for someone else to deal with.
I have been seeing complete sets of really nice brand name china at Thrift stores for $30-$45 and sometimes at half price. China sets are not fast movers even at thrift stores.
Pghgirl has given excellent advice on this question as well as other questions about the value of china so I do not see any need to repeat her answers.
Replacements is an excellent site to find values but they have warehouses full of china and do not have sets sitting in their dining room (just taking up space) as many of us do. They can afford to hold on to an item for a few months and wait for someone who is looking for that one or two pieces of a set they like.
Please do not even think about shipping a set as this usually ends in a disaster. You may be able to sell (and ship) one or two pieces but never a set (even to replacements).
Replacements is a good site to check prices but not for an appraisal of your china. If they are interested in your set, they will supply a list of items they are interested in and the price they will pay (you would be responsible for all shipping and insurance cost).
If you look at sold items on eBay you will find that most of this brand (Meito MEI) is selling for very low prices. One large sale but that is a real fluke as this is rarely seen.
You can always ask for a free appraisal just in case you have a more valuable set. They will need lots of information and several pics.
if you wish to sell your set, I would suggest listing it of a local site such as Craigslist, Nextdoor.com, USA4Sale, or any other site that has customer pick up in your area.
This way you can start your set at a higher price and lower it if no one shows an interest.
I may be thinking of another brand but it seems this may have been one of the brands that were sold as premiums in some supermarkets (one or two items each week) several years back.
They can be bird mites. Try to capture some in a plastic bag. If that is what they are, you will need an exterminator.
if you have no credit before guess what DENIED last night they were kind enough to inform me we have no previous credit.never needed it till now i guess i should go sell both my cars but that wont cover half a vet bill.anyone have a house i can use for collateral..there is know help i wish i could pay for all of you but im in the same sit .oh and for the a.hole her husband is most likley a vet..
well if there going to charge people outrage vet bill than they should at least fix your dog and that care credit is bs.vets are just snake oil sales people.350.00 dollars later oh and of course up front.they said she might have pacreitis no meds i have to make another doctor visit if i want anything that requires a scriptand for what they spend to go to school thats there choice what about what lawyers pay for school are you going to oh poor them also.you know you buy a car and make payments why arent vets like that and for ins crap my dog needs her teeth pulled 600.00 to 7 ins deduct.500.00 boy now that makes sence.this world and people arew going to ...it cost more to take care of your pets than to take care of kids they charge like there family than they should give a program like medicaid .vets know thathow a person feels about there dogs so there going to rip you off cause they know they can...so i get to see my 10 pound 11 year old minture duatshound suffer.oh forgive the spelling i cant afford college either.i own 2 cars have lived in the same house for 14 years my boyfriend makes 4000 a month and we cant get credit to go to vets.its a load of crap..
I have a hoya that is from my grandmother's plant, she has been gone about 20 years now. I treasure it. They are the neatest plants with such beautiful blooms.
They have face masks at my doctor's office and I never thought of such a thing. Kids are like that though.
Yesterday, I was walking behind a dad and his two young sons. The youngest was lagging behind and whacking loaves of bread as he passed. At first, it was sort of gentle but it got increasingly rougher as he went along. The dad and brother didn't notice and were already at the end of the aisle. I called out, "Hey, don't hit the bread. Other people want to buy that." He stopped for a second and then ran ahead, whacking one last loaf as hard as he could. :(
Hope you are doing well and don't need to have too many visits to the doctor. Take care!
first i hope you feel better. second i used to work in a doctors office. we were there to work via answering the phones, making appointments, helping the doctors with whatever they needed. sometimes we would not be busy and would see what was going on in the waiting room. we would tend as best we could to deal with situation. but of course, i think it is the parents responsibility to tend to their own child. we were often telling children to not climb on the play house or play on the fish tank. i had checked a mother and her son to the patient room. mom started sneezing and coughing covering her mouth with her hand. i promptly said to use the crook of her elbow. she responded to that with well yes i do that at work. but she wasnt doing it then.
what i am trying to say is it is OUR responsibility to say something to a child. they are not being guided and taught by responsible people. i am sure the grandfather wouldnt have even noticed but maybe grandmother would be. please dont tell me im sexiest. just take my advise for what i said.
Thanks for the info.
I am in Pittsburgh and never had luck with spider plants being outside. I would try in April or May (after the last frost).
I have some of my plants for over 40 years old, all indoor only. When I tried outdoor they either got sunburned or bugs or too much rain water.
Obviously your climate is totally different so you may be able to don't now if you are done with frosts. Be sure to keep them out of direct sun, watch that they don't get too much water, and be aware of bugs.
Hope you have better luck with outdoor plants than I did!
The refrigerator door has closed on my head for the last time. This is a great idea. I have also considered moving the fridge out and putting a piece of wood under the rear legs in order to lift up the rear of the fridge and use gravity to keep the door from closing once it opens.
Definitely contact the hospital but they may send you to collections anyway.
I went to the hospital (Kaiser) to pay off one of my bills, only a couple of hundred dollars. There was no record of the debt in the system so I guessed that I had gotten confused and had already paid it off. Nope! They sent it to collections and washed their hands of the whole thing.
I got a call the next day and figured out what happened. I paid it immediately with no penalty but it was still disappointing. I think so many people can't afford their medical bills that it's just a cost of doing business for them.
Good luck and let us know what you find out.
always call the biller. they are sending you the bill and can tell you what you need to know. you can also ask if there is anyway of reducing your total bill amount.
The only way to lighten hair is to bleach the pigment out. Any dye will be deposited on the top of your hair so the color underneath always shows through.

Thanks for inspiring me to make something almost the same but with a different purpose. I will post this week. This is really cute and the photo steps are great, too.
I think your best bet to do is do a search on "Google" put all the information you have on the dolls and see if any thing comes up with your description.
Also go on "eBay" and do a search, eBay is the worlds largest site that sells dolls , you might find some information on your dolls with price that is being asked for .
Horrible chemicals in this.
yes this is new normal. if the doctor needs to look at your legs. they want to see you walking. they cant do that with a drape.
Looks like a classic carpet beetle. Not harmful but pesky.
They love flowers and plants and eat other stuff found in carpet...which is where I always guessed they got their name....or it could be they look like berber carpet...but I doubt that one.
If you keep getting them, you may want to go around your house and check windows and doors for spaces and patch them up since they will come in for warmth.
Typically they are outside amongst the plants...so if you have a lot of flowering plants up against your foundation, you may want to move them or just be sure to patch up any cracks in the brick/block.
If you only see them in the spring, then you will have to do like we do with ants and about a month before our problem time, do the outside checks, inside checks and do a good cleaning to remove their food supplies.
If you have a true infestation, you may want to call in an exterminator, but most folks can deal with them with good cleaning and patching up their doors and windows so they don't get in.
Happy spring!! Too bad it brings bugs, right :(
Could you copy it and send it to me please.i love it.
Could you copy it and send it to me please.i love it.
Does it work in showers/grout???
I use gloss mod podge with a brush in a thin layer or you can even mix the mod podge with the glitter first then the sealant is already in it! If you use a spray, it has to be a high gloss acrylic and it will dry shiny

Hi Jess--sorry I'm just now seeing this. I've done the string method, too, but it's hard to do that with just two hands. You really need a helper to get the string (or dental floss) tight enough. If somebody has a lot of them, the kit on Amazon is worth it. I figure removing 20 of them for about $15 was worth it.
You're welcome! Sorry I'm just now seeing this. My family jokes that if I like something, I either frame it or hang it on the Christmas tree.
Wait why would i want them to clean with me? Lol that's my job
This is what they are talking about. I have one. It is very cool.
I am so sorry for your loss. My dog went into mourning when his best friend, my cat, died. He wouldn't eat either. My vet advised me to cook chicken or beef & mix it with rice. I made small balls of these and hand feed him, one at a time several times a day. I agree with others, very important to be sure he's drinking water. Give him lots of lovin & try to coax him to eat one ball at a time. Good luck
this looks so simple & easy to make & sounds so delicious. I can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing
Great idea. I don't sew, so I'll use fabric glue. Thanks
You should find a wildlife refuge and get it there ASAP! If you don't have one, call the local animal shelter and get their guidance to give the little one the best chance of a good outcome. Post back what they tell you! Prayers for the wee fur one!
I have fed baby chippies before..I don't believe anyone but animal lovers will do anything about the little one you have..A box it may chew out of..I'd use a small cage or an aquarium w a lid on it. Depending on how bad the injury is it can heal w your help. Food and water. Ty for saving him/her .
This is exactly what I'm going through right now I'm renting a house from a man and I think he knew that this house had issues but here taking me almost 6 months to figure out that I'm not just allergic to my laundry detergent and I don't have the diagnosis that my doctor suggests but I'm dealing with these mites because the basement it's full of black mold and so is the porch that he put a washing machine on and some sticky tiles over concrete that was not sealed... It has become an emergency for me to move out and I I'm grateful for good information like this, shared by others. I've never lived anywhere and found an amoeba and in the past week and a half I have found hundred and I'm just blown away with how disgusting this environment has become in a year it's not my fault it's his for not putting a vapor barrier down there.
