taking advantage of the sun without solar panels

It has been so hot, so you can take advantage of the sun for you laundry drying needs, just hang the close out to dry.  I have a portable pop-up drying rack, when hot I dry my towels and jeans (these take the longest to dry) to about 95% dry, I make sure to use liquid laundry softner,  and then I put them in the dryer for about 15 min to get the “crunchy” out.

I have nice , fresh, clean smelling clothes, and it takes about 1/4 the normal drying time so I save on electric/gas bill also.

This is also great for blankets, comforters, sheets, ect…..

Coincidence or kowinkydink

In addition to this list 3 or 4 former Arkansas  State Troupers who were part of Clinton’s Body Guard detail when he was governor, were later appointed as Secret Service Agents when he became President.  All of them were killed during the siege at Waco.  Strange coincidence as they were preparing to testify against Clinton.

HERE’S SOME INTERESTING GEOGRAPHY

Alaska

More than half of the coastline of the entire United States is in Alaska.

Antarctica

Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country.  Ninety percent of the world’s ice covers Antarctica . This ice also represents seventy  percent of all the fresh water in the world. As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert. The average yearly total precipitation is about two inches Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it, i.e.), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.

Canada

Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined. Canada is an Indian word meaning ‘ Big Village.’

Chicago

Next to Warsaw, Chicago has the largest Polish population in the world.

  

Istanbul , Turkey

Istanbul (AKA Constantinople), Turkey, is the only city in the world located on two continents.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles’ full name is El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula — and can be abbreviated to 3.63% of its size: L.A.

New York City

The term ‘The Big Apple’ was coined by touring jazz musicians of the 1930’s who used the slang expression ‘apple’ for any town or city. Therefore, to play New York City is to play the big time – The Big Apple.

There are more Irish in New York City than in Dublin, Ireland; more Italians in New York City than in Rome, Italy; and more Jews in New York City than in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Ohio

There are no natural lakes in the state of Ohio, every one is man made.

Pitcairn Island

The smallest island with country status is Pitcairn in Polynesia, at just 1.75 sq. miles.

Rome

The first city to reach a population of 1 million people was Rome, Italy in 133 B.C.  There is a city called Rome on every continent.

Siberia

Siberia contains more than 25% of the world’s forests.

S.M.O.M .

The actual smallest sovereign entity in the world is the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (S.MO.M.) It is located in the city of Rome, Italy, has an area of two tennis courts, and as of 2001 has a population of 80, 20 less people than the Vatican. It is a sovereign entity under international law, just as the Vatican is.

Sahara Desert

In the Sahara Desert, there is a town named Tidikelt, which did not receive a drop of rain for ten years. Technically though, the driest place on Earth is in the valleys of the Antarctic near Ross Island. There has been no rainfall there for two million years. 

    

Roads

Chances that a road is unpaved in the U.S.A: 1%, in Canada: 75%.

United States

The Interstate System requires that one-mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.

Waterfalls

The water of Angel Falls (the World’s highest) in Venezuela drops 3,212 feet. They are 15 times higher than Niagara Falls.

It has been said that you should learn something new every day.

Unfortunately, many of us are at that age where what we learn today, we forget tomorrow.

The real reason reusable bags are good

Yes, they are better for the environment, but that isn’t it….They just work better.

If I use the plastic bags at the store I end up carrying 5 or 6 bags with a few items each, when I take my bags in, I come out with 1 or 2 bags.

The stuff actually stays in the bag on the trip home, I can’t tell you how many times I go to get the plastic bags and the stuff is all over the truck.

I have yet to have a reusable bag break and let loose the items inside while I am taking it from the car to the house….has happened the the super thin, weak plastic bags.

So I do it because they carry more, don’t break and don’t make a mess in the back of my car, the upside is they are better for the environment, and some stores even give you credit for bring them in.

Made In good Ole USA

physics teacher in high school, once told the students that while one grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn’t slow a train very much, a billion of them would . With that thought in mind, read the following…………obviously written by a good American

(I think this lady’s on the right track. Let’s all get behind her!)

Check this out. I was in Lowes the other day, and just for the heck of it I was looking at the hose attachments. They were all made in China. The next day I was in Ace Hardware, and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments there. They were made in USA. Got me thinking. Start looking.

In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy, or do, affects someone else – maybe even their job. My grandson likes
Hershey’s candy. I just noticed that it is marked ‘made in Mexico’ now. I choose not to buy it any more.

My favorite toothpaste, Colgate, is also ‘made in Mexico’ now. I’ve switched to Crest. You have to read the labels on everything.

This past weekend I was at Kroger. (Can be true for any store.) I needed 60W light bulbs, and Bounce dryer sheets. I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to the GE brand I normally buy, was an off brand labeled, “Everyday Value.” I picked up both types of bulbs and compared the stats – they were the same, except for the price. The GE bulbs were more money than the Everyday Value brand………but the thing that surprised me the most, was the fact that GE was ‘made in MEXICO’ and the Everyday Value brand was ‘made in (you got it) the USA’, in a company in Cleveland, Ohio.

So throw out the myth that you cannot find the products you use every day……made right here!!!!!!!

On I went to another aisle. Those Bounce Dryer Sheets I needed – yep, you guessed it! Bounce cost more money – and – it’s made in Canada. The Everyday Value brand was less money – and – ‘MADE IN THE USA’! Bye-bye Bounce! I did laundry yesterday, and the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I’ve been using for years………..and at almost half the price!

My challenge to you is this. Start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things, and see what you can find that is made in the USA. The job you save may be your own, or your neighbors!

If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your address book, so we can all start buying American……one light bulb at a time!

Stop buying from overseas companies and other countries!

We should have awakened a decade ago Longer than that, over 30 years ago it was already happening.

Let’s get with the program and help our fellow Americans keep their jobs, and create even more jobs, right here in the U. S. A.

it’s the little things you do that add up to a lot

We take a large glass of water with us to bed every night. Rarely do we ever finish it, I am sure we are not the only ones.

What do you do with the water the next day? I either pour whats left into the animals water bowl, or if that is full, use it in the plants around the house. This might now seem like much, on a daily basis, but on a monthly and yearly basis it is quite a bit.

There are small things like this you can do around your house that will impact your wallet and the earth in a big way.

Biotin – Booyah

Well hell, it works.

I have always “shed” I can remember my parents yelling at me to clean up the hair in the tub, and my husband complains about my hair all over also. I have also had bad nails, they “peel” they are so flimsy that I can peel layers off the them and then they tear so I never have nail.

A while back (ok a long while back) I went to a hair salon from groupon and the hairdresser said I should try Biotin. Well, a few months back I was in Big Lots and they had a bottle for $3.00 and I figured what the heck, I would give it a try and Holy Cow it works.

My “shedding” is down about 75% and I have nails, healthy nail. Now there is a down side, when you get nails you were never used to having, you tend to poke and scratch sensitive places on your and your loved ones until you get used to them 🙂

I wish someone would have told me about this sooner!

1 in 1000 Male Walking Stick

Sooo, I am minding my own business when this large weird thing flies by me. I am like “WTF” because it lands on my screen and I get close and it is a freaking Walking Stick Insect.

It is soo cool, and large. So I go on line to learn about them and I find out that only 1 in 1000 are males and in most species only the male can fly. So Just my luck, instead of winning the lottery I get a male walking stick 🙂

IMG_0161

He was pretty large, not sure if you can tell by picture but at least 6inches or so. He was as big as my hand.

So that was a week or so, the other day I found a BABY walking stick on my zucchini leaf, I left it alone because it is cool! I really don’t mind the insects if they don’t eat my veggies, or kill them. I am also not a sadist so the thought of getting wasps or something that lays eggs in the catipillars and eats them from the inside out is not appealing either…ewwwww. Plus who wants wasps and hornets???

So I pick off the catepillars and lob them up in the ivy, after that they are on their own. I really hate those damn tomato worms because they eat EVERYTHING and super quick. I found a small one and lobbed him in the ivy.

I use a mix of dishwasher soap and Listerine and spray it in the am on my plants to get the bad insects and avoid the good insects.

I still wish I could have had the 1 in 1000 lottery ticket 😦
