  5. My Library Thinks MrsS is buggy

    I can get in just fine but I have an odd "thumbnail" on my recent sites instead of the usual Mrs S pic I get a montage of pics that look vaguely pornographic so the site may have a virus or malware. Scanning my computer it appears clean and nothing else is giving me that problem.
  6. Survival uses of trees - EE blog

    Pear- eat the fruit, wood makes good kitchen tools when carved, can be used to make pectin for jam/jelly Linden- Tea from flowers used for diaphoretic, expectorant, diuretic, antispasmodic, stomachic, and sedative. In addition, the flowers have been used traditionally for the treatment of flu, cough, migraine, nervous tension, ingestion, various types of spasms, liver and gall bladder disorders, diarrhea, and elevated arterial pressure associated with arteriosclerosis. Bark- inner fibrous part of bark can be used to make clothing after soaking for a month in water. wood good fro sculpting and making shields. Maple-syrup for eating, wood for making musical instruments and furniture and flooring, dried wood good for smoking food, paper Redbud- green twigs used to season meat, flowers buds and pods are edible, wood good for veneers Ash-wood -bow and arrow shafts, tool handles, particularly good for use in making carts, leaves used as a laxative and purgative. Those are the only non-repeats I have noticed that I can identify for sure. Guess I need to do "treasure" hunt in my neighborhood!
  7. Fun tiny bike camper that could have a lot of applications, best of all super cheap to make and light! http://www.elkinsdiy.com/plans/ The plans are inexpensive. I think I'll be having some fun with this if nothing else as a playhouse for Ben for camping in the back yard.
  8. ~~Clutter Clearing Challenge #3~~

    Everyone is doing fabulous!! I've been working on upgrading my dishes, got rid of all the chipped, cracked and mismatched plates, mugs and bowls and bought some pretty new turquoise Fiestaware for my birthday present to myself De-cluttered all the clothes Ben has outgrown, and some that Nick doesn't wear. Not planning on storing them for 10 yrs on the off chance Ben will wear them. I do keep some things like the expensive jacket that is still in good shape, snowpants, etc. Getting ready to put in a small garden for the first time in years now that we have a proper fence to keep the deer out!
  9. New beginnings late in life

    Welcome back! How exciting!
  10. ~~Clutter Clearing Challenge #3~~

    You're making such great progress everyone! I've been working outside lately. Ben got a new playset, and I am weeding and DH will be working on fixing the other half of the backyard where the poplar tree went down a few yrs ago (removing the stump) and weeding/re-planting some bushes and making an area for a small garden and the sandbox I want to put in. In the front yard I'm planting flowers this weekend if the weather cooperates. Inside this weekend I'm going to focus on my kitchen and de-cluttering the cabinets. Mostly the storage containers. I seem to have 3/4 lids without any mates so matching things up and tossing the rest of the mismatched lids, and also wiping down things. Oh and finishing up my application to graduate school this weekend.
