To clean burnt and scorched pans, sprinkle liberally with baking soda, adding just enough water to moisten. Let stand for several hours. You can generally lift the burned portions right out of the pans. On non-stick cookware, stubborn stains can be removed by boiling 2 tablespoons of baking soda, 1/2 cup vinegar, and 1 cup of water for ten minutes. Before using, season pan with salad oil. For copper pots, fill a spray bottle with vinegar and add 3 tablespoons of salt. Then spray the solution on copper pot. Let stand, then rub clean. Rub on Worcestershire sauce or catsup, and tarnish will disappear. Or dip lemon halves in salt and rub.
Next time you go to the store or the movie theater, consider that your hard earned dollars may be paying not only for the good or service you buy but also to undermine your Second Amendment rights. Many of these companies actively oppose gun rights by supporting gun control legislation or by opposing legislation that expands gun rights (Volkswagen). Others give generously to anti-gun groups (Ben & Jerry’s) or their executives serve on the boards of anti-gun groups (Disney). Still others, refuse to do business with US gun manufacturers (Bank of America).
We’re not just talking about “No Firearms” signs at the front door, here. These companies are openly hostile to the Second Amendment. When you support these companies by buying their products you subsidize the anti-gun groups that they associate with or help pay the lobbyists and lawyers they hire to fight against your Constitutional liberties.
The following is a list of vegetable and herbs which grow well together and protect one another from insect attack. Many herbs are natural insect repellents that can keep your garden bug free and reduce or eliminate the need for potentially harmful pesticides.
By using Companion Planting, many gardeners are discovering that they can discourage garden pests without harming helpful insects such as bees and ladybugs. Some herbs, through their odors or root secretions, will deter pests naturally. An added bonus is; these same herbs, planted as companions in your garden, will season the fruits and vegetables of your labor.
Some herbs even improve the flavor or growth rate of their companion vegetables. Companion planting is the ultimate way to bring the balance of nature into your garden. Just do your best to match the suitable herb with the suitable plant and the rest will follow.
What is “caching”? Simply, it is hiding a quantity of supplies that you might need in the future.
Speaking as a person who has placed numerous caches under many different circumstances, this method is the best.
Some things to be aware of : My caches are made of either 6″ or 8″ diameter SDR35 PVC pipe (it is a bit thinner than schedule 40 and less expensive, but provides more than enough protection to the supplies inside). Length tends to be about 40″ to 60″ long (when storing a rifle). My caches tend to be located under heavy cover (not out in the open) usually in wooded areas where surveillance/accidental discovery is minimized. Landmarks are very easily recognized and are permanent. Exact location of the cache is a consistent method (i.e., always 10 yards from a specific marker). Caches are made during late spring and into the summer. Other times of the year increase the possibility of hunters, etc. being in the area.
These are just a fraction of the medical expenses victims of the Boston Marathon bombing will face.
The mammoth price tag is probably not what patients are focusing on as they begin the long healing process. But friends and strangers are already setting up fundraisers and online crowd-funding sites, and a huge Boston city fund has already collected more than $23 million in individual and corporate donations.
No one knows yet if those donations — plus health insurance, hospital charity funds and other sources — will be enough to cover the bills. Few will even hazard a guess as to what the total medical bill will be for a tragedy that killed three people and wounded more than 260. At least 15 people lost limbs, and other wounds include head injuries and tissue torn apart by shrapnel.
I think that their bills should not need donations to be cared for. I think that one of the many jobs of this government is to provide security for the citizens. Even the preamble to the Constitution touches on the points of domestic tranquility and providing for the common defense. The bombers were immigrants to this country, let in by the federal government with a broken system that is not enforced even though citizens of this country have been screaming for attention to be paid to immigration to this country. Since the government let these people into this country, its the government’s responsibility to the citizens to make sure these people are worthy of entrance and if not, any issues from that fall squarely at the feet of the government.
I’d like to see the President and the first lady take a break from meeting with the bombers and their friends and haul their asses down to the hospital personally meet with each and every one of the injured, and cut the hospital a check.
The annulment of the armistice agreement with South Korea and repeated threats to attack the South over the past three weeks have, so far, been exposed as nothing more than bluff and bluster.

The campfire appeals to an instinct which is common to man and which can be traced back to antiquity. Fires will always be in demand by those who are seeking recreation in its different forms in the national forests and in other areas. They provide a means of creating warmth, of cooking, of lighting, of exchanging signals, and of fostering a community interest among those who are gathered in the campfire circle. There are two types of areas in the national forests, and in other parks and forests, on which camp stoves and fireplaces are used. These areas are ordinarily designated as forest camp or campground (primarily for overnight camping use), and picnic area (primarily for daytime) picnic use and seldom for overnight use). The term “forest camp” is generally applicable to any area in the national forests used for camping or picnicking or both.
While surfing around I found a pretty good booklet on bulletproofing your home. This is 12 pages and has some really outstanding information on materials, construction and specifications for making your house impervious to small arms.
