DIY Shaker Door 

Doors are one of those touches in a home that can often be overlooked as an opportunity to add class and interest. Nothing irritates me more than walking into a home and seeing the brown, hollow-wooded 80’s style doors with brass doorknobs in a home. They look horribly cheap and borderline offensive. I apologize if …

How Fast Can You Find The Number 250? The Record is Under 2.5 Seconds. Did You Beat It?

How many of you are geniuses like me? Ok, I don’t have any idea of the legitimacy of the claim “genius” for finding 250 in about 1.5 seconds, but I guess it speaks to my puzzle solving propensity. And in fairness, there really should have been more than two 2’s placed within the puzzle. My …

No Body Needs Milk!

I quit drinking cow’s milk when I was 17 after I read a book called the Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity by Daniel Reid. He gave a very compelling argument citing research about how pasteurized cow’s milk is completely denatured and unnecessary, as well as harmful for human consumption. The Weston Price foundation, on …

Backyard Chickens Aren’t For Everyone

We post a lot about the benefits of having chickens on the homestead and the many creative ways to care for them. But this is the first time we might try to talk you out of it. Sort of. Really, I needed to read this for myself because I thought we might want to get …

DIY Caffeine Eye Serum (for puffy eyes)

Ok, so I don’t post about beauty DIY projects too often, but this is one I have done and only because my under-eye bags have been a facial presence of mine since I was a pre-teen. I guess that should be a clue to me that they’re just not going anywhere. Some folks have these …

The World’s Coolest Portable Air Conditioner by Zero Breeze

Ok, don’t get too excited. This is still in the Kickstarter phase. But I can’t see it failing, unless there’s some major flaw that has yet to be revealed. How is it a portable air conditioner has been so very difficult to create until now? Well, what do I know? These people did it, and …

This Police Force Delivered A Stern Message To People Who Leave Their Dogs In Cars

I am beyond astounded that this kind of stupidity is so rampant. Dogs and babies get left it hot cars to die a sweltering death whether it is due to negligence or ignorance. If you bring a life that cannot fend for itself into a car with you, please, just do not leave it behind! …

How They Extract Spider Silk

This video is so science-fiction-y I can’t even believe it’s a real thing. I actually feel really bad for this poor spider. It really looks like it’s being violated. I’m positive PETA would take serious issue with this. At least they return the spider to its web after each “harvesting” session so it can feed …

How to Develop the Situational Awareness 

When I first met Matt he was about 4 months out of the Marine Corps. Whenever we went to a restaurant he insisted on sitting in the back with eyes on the exits and back to a wall. He explained that this was something he was trained to do: to be aware of the surroundings, …

How To Identify Wildlife By Ground Holes

When we stayed in an RV park in Louisiana there was torrential downpours. Of course, I had to do laundry and walk through the sloshy Louisiana mud to get to the laundry room. Also, littering the marshy lawn were gross, mud mounds like the one pictured above. I had NO idea what made these mud …
