And the time I was recording a song on an audio tape and when I went to rewind the tape on high speed, the tape stretched and got caught up inside the recorder and the recorder had to be replaced. Well, the tape was so thin, of course it stretched and snapped and got stuck inside the recorder. Wouldn’t that happen to anyone?
Under-inflated tires increase rolling resistance, use more gas and wear more rapidly. Keeping tires inflated to the maximum recommended pressure (printed in the owner’s manual) can reduce fuel use by 3-4% and extend tire life. Make sure your wheels are properly aligned to reduce fuel consumption, extend tire life and improve handling. Rotating tires at designated intervals will keep them wearing evenly and lasting longer. According to Consumer Reports, a tire’s rolling resistance “can add or detract an additional 1-2 miles per gallon,” NOTE: Some tires claim low rolling resistance and high fuel economy, such as Michelin’s Energy MXV4 and Continental’s ContiPremierContact.
The cave in the second Poltergeist movie where corpses were buried evidently had real skeletons in them as well- like these guys didn’t learn their lesson the first time.
There are some simple measures you can take to rid your home of mold. A regular household product such as vinegar is very useful at eradicating mold. Spray a vinegar solution into problem areas such as the shower head or cubicle, faucets or grout between the tiles. Mold can grow anywhere in the home where the conditions are right, so it is essential to check all areas in your home. An example of an old cupboard where there is plenty of dampness, humidity and rotten food is a perfect place to find it.
Shop at recycle centers to discover less costly materials. Options such as ReStores run by Habitat for Humanity – that have around four hundred stores in the United States – sell materials that have been salvaged for about fifty percent of the price of the same new materials sold at home renovation centers. Before obtaining these materials, be sure that your contractor will work with materials that you have supplied yourself, and salvaged materials.
There are many ways in which we can provide pets a cooling relief through a warm weather. First is by giving them a cold bath. Dogs love to spend time outside. Running here and then, and playing around, they expose themselves under the sun and also to dirt. Letting the cold water run through their skin will refresh them. You can buy an inflatable pool and set it up on your backyard so that Fido can take a dip. By bathing your dog, you don’t only give them a cool feeling, but also a clean feeling. However, it is not advisable to bathe your dog very often for it can lessen the oil in their coat, dry their skin, and cause some irritations.
Saving energy on heating and air conditioning will help you make a big personal contribution towards your energy usage. In winter, plastic sheeting over windows and unused patio doors will pay off in weeks in reduced natural gas costs. In summer, treating your air conditioner as a dehumidifier instead of an ice maker will help you cut your electric bill and be part of reducing the load on the electrical grid. Columbia Gas and the many independent natural gas suppliers don’t need your extra dollars. Duke Energy is buidling peaking stations to generate electricity in the summer to meet demands from air conditioner. This energy is sold at a premium, and it drives up the cost of natural gas over the course of a year.
Stay away from small flowers that do not have a lot of color. These flowers are the ones that tend to bother allergies. Larger, brighter flowers, such as the ones that bees and hummingbirds are attracted to, tend to be non-allergenic, so you should be okay around these kinds of flowers.
