For those of you who actually wash your own car…  

Next time you wash your car try adding a teaspoon of vegetable
oil to the bucket before adding your soap and water. This will
help the soap carry away the dirt from your car’s paint during
the washing process.

Well another Friday is here again….Before we know it it will be Santa time again…..I had an idea last night while i was going off to sleep and made a note to myself that i should post about it…but of course ah trying to remember what it was and it totally slip me……..oh well…..
Reading glasses
I think I need reading glasses……I am a big reader and I am now fnding that I need longer arms to hold the fineprint books away from me so I can read it….I can still read comfortably but after a while i feel the strain on my last eyecheck up was under two years so i guess the big 40 really had its impact….

Left hand/Right hand
They say that lefties are the only people in their right minds…yeah corny…i know…but they say that the right half of the brain predonminates in people who are left handed……anyway I was thinking about this becasue apparantly as a child i favoured my left hand, my mom not liking the idea of a left handed daughter “turned” me into a rightie…..i sometimes find myself using both and once even used my left hand to write for about 2 wks in primary school after spraining my right hand….Just makes me wonder whether she supressed all my creatvity! HA….the leftie community had the likes of Beethoven, Einstein, Michalanglo, Leonardo Da vinci, Newton….and i could go on and on…..I guess i will never know… my next lifetime maybe…..

Most common letters
The ten most common letters in the English language(in order) are e, t, a, o, i, n, s, h, r, and d. I bet you all didnt know that….Now what will you do with that info???

Happy w/end……

I found this one kinda funny!

“”One night, after the couple had retired for the night, the woman became aware that her husband was touching her in a most unusual manner. He started by running his hand across her shoulders and the small of her back. He ran his hand over her breasts, touching them very lightly. Then, he proceeded to run his hand gently down her side, sliding his hand over her stomach, and then down the other side to a point below her waist. He continued on, gently feeling her hips, first one side and then the other. His hand ran further down the outside of her thighs. His gentle probing then started up the inside of her left thigh, stopped and the returned to do the same to her right thigh. By this time the woman was becoming aroused and she squirmed a little to better position herself. The man stopped abruptly and rolled over to his side of the bed.
“Why are you stopping darling?” she whispered.

He whispered back, “I found the remote!”””

Now ladies, what would you do in this situation……

Here’s are two tricks on cleaning burnt food from your pots and pans.
Add some baking soda and water to the pot, bring to a boil
and then let it sit for about 15 minutes.
Same as above but instead of baking soda, just use regular soapy water and bring to a boil……

I havent personally tried the baking soda, but i now for sure that the soapy water has worked for me before!!!!

Preserving newspaper clippings

Preserve a newspaper clipping by mixing a bottle of club
soda and 1/2 cup of milk of magnesia. Soak the clipping
for 20 minutes and let it dry. It will last for many

Just came across an article that says:

“Twenty-five years ago, Carnegie Mellon University professor Scott E. Fahlman says, he was the first to use three keystrokes — a colon followed by a hyphen and a parenthesis — as a horizontal “smiley face” in a computer message” Read more here

I have surely used my fair share of smiley faces over the years so just wanted to say kudos to them….

On other news…OJ Simpson is being held without bail on six felonies, including two counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon. If convicted, Simpson could receive up to 30 years in state prison on each robbery count….mmmhhhmm he got off on his two murder charges, bet he is now wishing Johnny Cohran was still alive 🙂

For all you cat lovers out there!!!!

Tea Bags & Kitty Liter:

Next time you clean out your cats kitty box open dry used tea bags and add the contents. The antibacterial properties in the tea helps neutralize odor.

New 100m World Record 9.74s by Asafa Powell in Rieti, Italy

The race for all those who did not get a chance to see it!! Or for those who want to see it again ..and again….and again….

Will try to post great tips which I come across and find handy…

Here’s a great tip #1

Next time you throw a load of laundry in the dryer….include a tennis ball or two. Not only will this cut down the drying time up to 50%, but it will also fluff your clothes. This works really well with a load of towels.

Try it!

Why is it that the opening of a new school term is always so chaotic???
Dropping my daughter to her second day at her new school, (first day for all the returning students) was a total headache! I drove around in circles three times before finally putting the car on the grassy sidewalk ( right beside the please do not park ont he grass sign) I know not a good example but trust me i think every parent who had a child at the school had parked and gone inside for something…so none of the cars were leaving
Then having dropped her off, the problem was to decide where the H#$^ to drive, there was traffic everywhere…..this resulted in me being 45 minutes late…….Sigh, the pressures of having kids 🙂 anyway hopefully by next week things will be back to normal….

On another note – What a run for Asafa……and the man still “draw up” at about 85m, why wont he just run through the tape??????? he proabbly would have gone under the 9.70 mark…anyway congrats to him and i hope by the time Olympics come around he would have settled mentally and be able to perform at his peak!

Anwyay off to do the work after being so late!
