Federal Lead Paint Law
A new federal law went in to effect April 2010, concerning lead paint.  If your house was built before 1978, everything that has to be done in repairs or replacements, are estimated to cost at least double, not to mention the cost of the test for the existence of lead.  If your thinking about buying or own a house built before 1978, talk to contractors as to the cost of any anticipated repairs, additions, new kitchens, new decks etc. 

Anything that was painted with lead paint, has to be sectioned off and contained, wrapped in 6 mil plastic, and carted away.  This will not be cheap. Any contractor that doesn't have the special licenses, or has a violation, will get a minimum or a $38,500 fine for each offense.


BBQ Grilling Tips
  • Before heating the grill, brush the grid with vegetable oil to keep the food from sticking.
  • The best time to salt your food is just before you place It on the grill.
  • Create flavorful smoke when grilling pork, fish or lamb by tossing lemon, orange or lime peel on the coals.
  • When grilling burgers, don't press the patty with the flat side of the spatula.  This squeezes out the juices, reducing flavor in raising the risk of flair up's.
  • Splash some balsamic vinegar or fresh lemon juice on grilled pork or lamb kebabs for a fat free flavoring
  • Use a spray bottle to mist and add moisture to rotisserie meats or poultry as they will spit roast.
  • Fill the bottle with the soy sauce, sherry, apple juice or beef broth, herbs and spices.  Mist about every 20 minutes.

Uses for Bounce-like products & BOUNCE CLOTHES SOFTENER --
  • And all this time we've just been putting Bounce in the dryer.
  • It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.
  • It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don't get opened too often.
  • Repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.
  • Eliminates static electricity from your television screen. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.
  • Dissolve soap scum from shower doors.
  • Clean with a sheet of Bounce Freshen the air in your home.
  • Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.
  • Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through a sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.
  • Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.
  • Freshen the air in your car. Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.
  • Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The anti static agent apparently weakens the bond between the food and the pan while the fabric softening agents soften the baked-on food.
  • Eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket.
    Collect cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce will magnetically attract all the loose hairs.
  • Eliminate static electricity from venetian blinds Wipe the blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.
  • Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.
  • Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.
  • Deodorize shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of Bounce in your shoes or sneakers overnight so they will smell better.

How old is the bread your buying?
----- When you go to   bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you "squeeze" for freshness or softness?
Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week?
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Each day has a different  color twist tie.
They are:   Monday = Blue,  Tuesday = Green,  Thursday = Red,  Friday = White,  Saturday = Yellow.
So if today was Thursday, you would want the red twist tie - not white which is Friday's (almost a week old)!
The colors go alphabetically by color:  Blue - Green - Red - White - Yellow.

Recalls on all items ----- President Bush has asked all federal agencies to streamline communications with the public and improve interagency information sharing in order to enhance public security.  Therefore, to provide better service in alerting the American people to unsafe, hazardous or defective products, six federal agencies with vastly different jurisdictions have joined together to create a "one stop shop" for U.S. Government recalls.

Do you know how to determine if a mirror is 2-way or not?
----- This was passed on by a policewoman who travels all over the US and gives seminars and techniques for business women.
When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror?
(i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them.) There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms.
Just conduct this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror.
However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE, FOR IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR!
