Today's Verse

Shoutbox

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Carol: Good Day - I see John B is online right now. John and Judy, I do hope you are not in the seriously hot temperatures.  I is really a scorcher today about 100 degrees.  Praying for relief. Jul 19 2019 10:31am

JudyB: Take care in the heat, try to stay cool! Jul 05 2019 11:36am

Janet: This is a great day to praise the Lord! Jun 24 2019 2:31pm

Oldiesmann: Just now realized I didn't have this set up properly... Only guests and regular users could see it and nobody could post shouts. Should be fixed now! Jun 22 2019 8:00pm

                                        ALPHABET HINTS

    A is for aluminum foil.  A piece of it with a knob of washing soda in a jar of water makes a silver dip cleaner.
    B is for ball point ink which you can remove from vinyl by rubbing it with a    slice of raw potato.
    C is for camphorated oil.  Applied with a soft cloth it will take white marks off furniture.
    D is for drip dry.  Shirts dry faster and smoother over a plastic bag put over the hanger.
    E is for egg slicer.  Use it for slicing mushrooms and beets as well as eggs.
    F is for foam rubber.  Rub it over upholstery to pick up dog and cat hairs.
    G is for glycerine.  Oil the mincer with it.  It won't flavor the food.
    H is for herbs.  Keep them on the shelf in alphabetical order, so they're easy to find.
    I is for icing.  Add a pinch of baking soda to icing to keep moist and prevent cracking.
    J is for jam.  It takes less time to make if the sugar is warmed through in the oven.
    K is for kneeling pad.  Make it from an old hot water bottle stuffed with old nylons.
    L is for lemon.  A half dipped in salt cleans copper.
    M is for magnet.  Keep one in the sewing box to pick up pins and needles.
    N is for newspapers.  They make excellent window polishers.
    O is for onion.  Pierce it lengthwise with a skewer and it won't come to pieces when boiled.
    P is for parsley.  Seed watered with boiling water grows quicker.
    Q is for quilt.  Keep it from slipping by sewing matching material to one end and tucking it under the mattress.
    R is for rubber gloves.  When the right ones wear out, hang on to the left ones.  Turn one inside out and you have a        pair again.
    S is for soap.  Rubbed on the bottom edges of a drawer it'll make it run smoothly.
    T is for tea leaves.  Put them around lily of the valley for more flowers.
    U is for undies.  Put the fragile ones in a pillocase, tied around the top, and wash them with the rest of the washing in      your machine.
    V is for vinegar.  Wiped over furniture before polishing gives an extra shine.
    W is for window box.  Put a layer of gravel over the earth, so the dirt doesn't spatter the windows.
    X is for Xmas cake.  The icing won't be ruined if the cake is put on the lid of the cake tin and the base over it.
    Y is for yeast.  It shouldn't be kept in the fridge or in a cold place, or it will die.
    Z is for zipper.  It it sticks, try running the lead of a pencil up and down the metal parts.  It should then run smoothly.[/list]

    Eta Sue - These alphabet hints are so interesting.  Wish I had known the "W" hint before this.  I have a window box under my bedroom window....and the window is always splattered with dirt!...LOL

    Several of these are good ones for me to use. Thanks, Etta Sue!
