    Apparently the Inuit (Eskimos) in northern Canada have many dozens - perhaps hundreds - of precise words in their native language for what we all just generalize as "snow" and "ice".

    This snow is described with lots of words, usually flavor names. :newpalm:

    And if you do, disguise your handwriting... :rolleyes: :eek: :D


    Tips:
    • Musty smell or odors in the basement, car, etc? Buy a cheap-o bag of charcoal briquettes (the type WITHOUT the lighter fluid) and place the open bag in the basement. Odors and mustiness will be absorbed. Or put 3 or 4 in a discreet place in the car, i.e. under the seat on a paper plate. Similar effect!
    • Place a hedge apple in a dish (to prevent juice stains) under the sink, in cupboards, etc as a natural insect repellent.

    Uh ... so you put a (soon to be rotten) apple in some dark, damp, undisturbed place to repel insects? Are you sure that works the way you intend?

    Oh, sorry... Seems the URL for "hedge apple" didn't post correctly first time. Corrected!

    I think when we lived in Chicago, we called hedge apples 'monkey apples.'

    You can use urine to wash your clothes.
