Emergency Car Care Kit

Probably the single most important item you should include in your kit is a pair of jumper cables. You never know when you car's battery may run low and you will need the cables to start her up. Dead batteries are among the major reasons why people call auto clubs or automakers for roadside assistance. Save yourself the expense and time of calling a tow truck. In addition, you can also play Good Samaritan when someone else needs a jump start. If you are not sure how to use them, read the instructions in your owner's manual. Be careful when connecting the cables to the battery. Besides the traditional cables, there are also compact cables available that fit into a glovebox. It's not a bad idea to have a battery booster in your emergency kit. If there isn't another car around, a booster containing its own battery can be merely connected to the posts of your dead battery to give it a jump.

Anytime In The Meantime

Finding time for me and my boyfriend is quite a challenge!
Each night, we lie in bed and talk about our day while we snuggle. No matter how tired we are, we take advantage of our private time in any way possible. We need that time to connect and keep in touch with each other. This is great for couples that have kids,demanding careers, and other time consuming obligations- try it!


Stop Squeaking Floors
Squeaking floors driving you crazy? For a quick fix, just sprinkle the area with talcum powder and sweep it into the cracks in the floor. The powder acts as a lubricant and should stop the squeaks. Try this one for sure, it works really well to stop those annoying squeaks.

Whose Looking At Who?

You may not know the "look," but it's definitely part of a teenager's demeanor.
"The look" is a facial expression that is used by adolescents to communicate with each other -- but even when you recognize it, it means different things to different people.
A group of researchers studied "the look" and found that, when it's used between friends of the same gender, it's meant to communicate anger, sadness or disgust. When it's used between non-friends of the same gender, it also means anger or disgust, but with an air of superiority attached.
They also found that when it's used with people of the opposite gender, it includes a message of power and authority.

Prune Those Perennials

Pruning Woody Perennials

Woody perennials like candytuft, and herbs like lavender and thyme will appreciate a spring haircut, and you'll be rewarded with a bushier plant. After pruning, apply a balanced fertilizer and a layer of compost.
