What's a good US-made gardening spade? I've got a Home Depot and one other small hardware store to look in in my area.
I guess I mean one that I'm going to be able to find in the average hardware store, rather than anything super rare. I guess I'd spend up to 50 bucks.
Thanks in advance if anyone is around anymore.
I'm thinking it's time to get a new set of drinking glasses. I usually get tall ones rather than wide. Any recommendations for stores to get some stylish ones? Maybe colored?
A few weeks ago we purchased a microfiber couch and loveseat set off of Craigslist. While they had been stored in a somewhat dusty work garage, they were in good condition. I gave them a good vacuuming after bringing them home. Well I've noticed that every time I sit on them I feel seriously itchy, like something is crawling on me. I realize microfiber is actually GOOD for people with allergies so I've ruled out the couch itself but I'm wondering if there could be something on the couch I'm having a reaction to? I've never had microfiber before so I'm not sure how to go about cleaning it without ruining it and I'd like to use something disinfecting to kill whatever feels like is crawling all over my skin. (I am aware this could be all in my head, as my husband has so nicely pointed out). Thanks!
I apologize if this is a stupid question and should not be posted here. Mods, feel free to delete.
For my new job I need to have a cell phone so the animal facility can contact me every time a mouse pukes. (Well, any time there is an animal issue. 24 hours a day. Like if a pipe bursts and the animal facility floods. If it floods due to global climate change I'll have bigger things to worry about than mice. Like building an ark out of yarn and Mod Podge).
So, cell phones. I have only had one emergency only prepaid phone and I've never needed to use it and never managed to make a call on it ever. (I did use the voicemail, but there was literally never an emergency). It was a gift more than 6 years ago, so I should probably buy another.
I'll let you guess exactly how much I want a cell phone. Unfortunately I have zero experience in buying them and choosing plans.
I have no kids, I have no parents, and I have only been in 2 situations in the past um, ten years? when a cell phone would have been convenient and moderately helpful. I am not a cell phone user by nature.
But someone needs to hear about the puking mice and that someone is me.
I need a phone that is a) not heavy to carry, b) can take a lousy picture unless I get a cheap camera instead, c) can be reasonably cleaned when it starts to smell like mouse poo and d) has a CHEAP phone plan because I already have phone/internet/tv at home and internet at work so I really don't need to be paying top dollar to be woken up at 2 am because a mouse puked.
Suggestions? I literally have no idea how to go about purchasing a phone beyond 'go online and get overwhelmed immediately and cry.' So advice would definitely be welcome. Thank you in advance.
My toaster sucks...it only toasts one side of the bread and I have to take the toast out, flip it around and toast again if I want both sides done. And no, it is not a cool antique, I've only had it about five years.
I need a two-slice toaster, preferably with a small footprint, that makes nice crunchy toast. Can anyone recommend one? Thanks!
I have a teddy bear that is a little over 40 years old. He was given to my mom by her beau when she was 16, and when I was a baby, I claimed him for my own. I don't think he's ever been washed, and years of constant moving, travel, sleeping, hospital stays, illnesses, etc., and he's looking pretty gross. Is it safe to throw him the washer? His tags are long faded. He still has his glass eyes, but his nose is long gone and he has a "new" mouth and nose sewn on by a babysitter I had. I try to febreeze him and set him out in the sun with my other stuffed animals that sit on the shelf, but I noticed tonight how truly dirty the poor bear is. I worry about his stuffing and his limbs getting ruined. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
