Dumbwaiter

Hi, we are in the process of planning our last home, and a dumbwaiter seems like a good idea, since a laundry chute is a one-way trip. In our situation, having the laundry on the 2nd floor or bedrooms on the first floor is not a good [more]

Re: To bell, or not to bell... that is the question.

When we had an outside cat, she learned to stalk so well that the bell did't ring, and her critter toll remained the same as before we did it, so it wasn't worth the risk of getting her caught by the collar. We tried several types of bells, thinking [more]

Re: Dilemma

I DO have a problem with "gotcha" type of programs, in which religion is unexpectedly introduced; my kids once went to a "Halloween party," but the only Halloween whatsoever was orange cupcakes---the rest was a Bible study! We [more]

Re: "Free Stuff"?

I tried "Pinch Me" for a short time, after it was mentioned positively in an article here at MF. During that trial of several months, I got 2 free samples, a small package of coffee and some hand lotion. They wanted lots and lots of [more]

Help Teach and Old Dog New Quinoa Tricks!

Hi, everyone! We finally tried quinoa last night, and it was different than I thought but everyone liked it. We ate it on a green salad with mushrooms and roast chicken. It has been fun to try some new things lately.

Solar Tubes?

Hi, does anyone have experience with solar tubes? We will be building this summer and they seem like an attractive way to augment light in hallways and bathrooms. The climate is mild in the summer, without a lot of really sunny days, so I don't think [more]

Re: Cancer surgery supplies

I am sorry to hear this.

I would recommend a front-buttoning flannel shirt or two, rather than sew or make something specific. If you don't have one, could you borrow a men's shirt or two from a family member? You will be all bandaged up, so [more]

Re: Case Against Stay-at-Home Moms and Dads

It's interesting to read, but as others have said, a "one size fits all" approach can't work with something this complex.

My husband quit work to stay with the kids; he had a "great" job as far as outsiders could see, but [more]

Is this True?

Hi, we just paid $50 to have a rock chip repaired in a windshield, with the clear goo.

A relative tells me that all it is is Super Glue and that I could have done it myself for $3.

Re: "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up&

Luckily, our library had the book. Getting ready to move this spring, we are working hard to declutter to stage the house and decide what we really want to pay to move. To me, it was one of those that was worth reading, but not worth buying. It was [more]
