menomonie: Why Granny Should Google - 11/18/09 05:09 AM
Why Grandma Should Google.   Using Google or other internet search engines may help older people stave off dementia and cognitive decline, scientists say. UCLA researches asked volunteers, ranging in age from 55 to 78, to spend an hour a day using Google to search for information about a range of subjects. Many had never used the Internet before. After two weeks, brain scans revealed increased blood flow in the regions involved in decision-making and short-term memory. The results validate the notion that seeking out new ideas and interests helps to keep the brain stimulated and healthy. "Becoming involved in new … (1 comments)

Going Green...   Cold water washes are greener, but will they get my clothes clean?   For a hot-water load, about 90% of the energy used to wash clothes goes to heat the water, not agitate your clothes. The good news is washing your clothes in warm water or even cold water will get rid of almost anything, except for the worst dirt or oily stains. Reader Digest Version: Switch from hot to warm water to cut energy use in half; cold, to cut even more.

Widespread layoffs by business of all sizes have also stifled demand for office space. Campmark's troubles could also be … (0 comments)

How does Hand Sanitizer work?   I found this in my wifes Womans Day Magazie. I found it interesting.Ethyl alcohol (Ethanol) is found in most hand sanitizers. It is a anti-microbial agent that has been recommended as a hand sanitizer since 1888. Alcohol disinfects the skin by disrupting the metabolism of bacterial cells. To be effective, the alcohol content must be over 60%. Other alcohols, like isopropyl alcohol, are also effective, but ethyl alcohol has a lower drying effect on the skin.Find environmentally-friendly hand sanitizers. Should I be concerned about alcohol content?When average adult applies alcohol-based hand sanitizer generously to her … (3 comments)

The Greenest of the Green, Cellulose Insulation
While people may debate the causes of global warming, it is just common sense to use products that have the minimum impact on the environment.
Insulation, by reducing the amount of energy required to heat or cool a building, is environmentally friendly. But don't be fooled into thinking all insulating materials are equal. There is plenty of greenwashing taking place to make products look more beneficial, or less harmful, to the environment than they really are.
Cellulose Insulation is one of the greenest products in the world. Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newsprint … (1 comments)

Forget what you saw in the 1970s: These days, indoor-outdoor carpet is more than just green turf. A large selection of colors and textures is available, and an intermediate-level do-it-yourselfer can tackle the installation in one day. You might have to rent a carpet-roller, but the tight seal it will provide will make it worth the minor expense.
Outdoor Carpets are designed for use on boats, decks, patios, porches, and any other outdoor area where you want something other than wood or concrete flooring. The yarn is specially treated to resist fading in direct sunlight, and the backing materials are … (2 comments)

menomonie: Maple Syrup - 11/09/09 08:47 AM
Maple syrup
The process of making maple syrup is an age-old tradition of the North American Indians, who used it both as a food and as a medicine. They would make incisions into trees with their tomohawks and use birch barks to collect the sap. The sap would be condensed into syrup by evaporating the excess water using one of two methods: plunging hot stones into the sap or the nightly freezing of the sap, following by the morning removal of the frozen water layer.
When the settlers came to North America, they were fascinated by this traditional process and in … (2 comments)

menomonie: Fall Squirrel Hunting - 11/06/09 09:50 AM
Fall Squirrel Hunting
Sneaking through the forest in fall is a rewarding hunting technique that gives you the feeling you are outwitting and ambushing your prey.
 
 
This brand of squirrel hunting requires woodsmanship and a keen sense of hearing and eyesight. A silent approach requires stalking skills -- concentration on slipping silently through underbrush, calculating each footstep, selecting the best silent route through the forest -- while searching for game. It's not an easy task, but it's very exciting and rewarding. It requires agility, strength, coordination and attention to details as you silently glide along the forest floor.
