    I second this. We got an outdoor fan w/mister thing a couple years ago and I put it right by the sliding door. Works great. I don't use the misting very much but it seems to work well too. I also like to add some sage or rosemary to the fire pit, it keeps the mosquitoes (and most other bugs) at bay.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Learned a good one today: You can clean soot off of fireplace bricks with dishwashing detergent. And it works REALLY well. (Apparently the science behind that is that soot is oily?)

    haha one time a broke a bottle of olive oil on the floor i used dawn to clean up had to throw out the mop, but it got it up

    that wasn't actually funny, but no dish soap is wonderful for oil and grease. as long as you get the big globs up first
    In no likes experiment.

    If you have goggles or a swim mask that fogs easily, but baby shampoo in a squirt bottle and squirt it onto the lenses.

    CORRECTION:

    Learned yesterday, when I was picking up my new glasses, that it's VERY bad to clean your glasses with hand sanitizer. Apparently it damages both the lenses and the frames, making both more brittle.

    I have used vinegar to deodorize a stale-smelly piece of vintage luggage. Place a shallow dish of vinegar in the luggage and close it; leave for 24 hrs or so. Remove the vinegar & leave it open for a while to let the vinegar smell out. It worked really well--I was amazed.

    I put dryer sheets all my luggage before storing it in order to keep it smelling fresh between uses.

    Hmmm, I will say the stem on my current pair did break off about a month ago. Yikes. I wonder if that had anything to do with it.

    They weren't even that old less than two years. I superglued it back on (checked and lens guy said it was the apoxy that had come undone, so no fixing it, though it works with the superglue).

    What the heck are you supposed to use then?
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.
