Recycle E-Waste

 

By now, we all realize that recycling makes sense and we should do it. Slowly but surely, recycling has become available in just about every city and town. But what about the stuff that can't go in the recycling bin? The EPA and other agencies suggest that electronic waste (aka e-waste) is the fastest growing waste stream in the world. Chances are, you have an outdated electronic appliance gathering dust somewhere in your house right now. This Earth Day, why not help make sure those gadget end up properly recycled instead of taking up space or leaching toxins in a landfill? Hall county's recycling center is at 1008 Chestnut St. SE. Click here to read the details on recycling your electronics locally.

Fast and Fun Craft
 

 

So simple! Layer cheap plastic beads in cake pans (no lining required), melt at 400 for 20 minutes,let cool, & then just flip them out. Drill a hole in it to make it a suncatcher! It's a great craft for kids (choose the colors, arrange them in the pans) to make as gifts for grandparents or teachers. Small ones be used as coasters. It looks like glass but not it's breakable.

Wise Words


 

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more."

                                                                    ~ George Gordon, Lord Byron

I've taken a break from my column for a few weeks. A strain of norovirus spread through the family and, well, nobody wants to read about that. I'll be back on April 12th with a column about tipping. If you've ever worked as a server, I'd love to hear about the best and worst gratuities you ever received...email me at next2new@aol.com.
In the meantime, here's an oldie that's one of my favorites: "Warning: Hamsters won't enable you to fly."


Tying up loose ends


Scarves- any size, any shape- are hotter than ever this season. Rachel sent me this video for ideas on how to tie them. Thanks, Rach!


Old jeans, new uses


I'm a long-time fan of repurposing. Apparently, so too is Heidi Klum (whoda thunk it?) Click here to see her slide show on repurposing old jeans.

FYI

Since our daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, we've been trying to get the word out about the symptoms. They can be subtle at first and, of course, the sooner it's diagnosed, the better. Please take a look at the warning signs, just so you'll know...



Wise Words



“It always amazes me to look at the little, wrinkled brown seeds and think of the rainbows in 'em," said Captain Jim. "When I ponder on them seeds I don't find it nowise hard to believe that we've got souls that'll live in other worlds. You couldn't hardly believe there was life in them tiny things, some no bigger than grains of dust, let alone colour and scent, if you hadn't seen the miracle, could you?”

~ L.M. Montgomery, Anne's House of Dreams

Chalk it up to FUN!



Dr. Mom


Nobody is naysaying the wonders of modern medicine—what would we do without a medication like penicillin to treat infections? But, as it turns out, everyday items have secret curing powers, too. Next time you don’t want to fork over money to get a common wart removed, consider using duct tape. Already popped two aspirin but can’t get rid of the headache? A pencil could do the trick. Click here get medical explanations behind a few bizarre—albeit brilliant—MacGyver-esque home remedies.


Shall we dance?


I've never met a flashmob I didn't like- whether they're singing music from "Les Mis" at a wedding or "Hallelujah Chorus " in a food court, I just love it. This is a flash waltz- Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers at the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower in Jerusalem. Doctors, patients and passers-by joined in the fun.
The surprise concert was part of Good Deeds Day, an annual event that originated in Israel in 2007 and now takes place in over 50 countries worldwide. Bravissimo!

Whatcha eatin'?


Nix those suspicions that good, homemade food comes with an exorbitant price tag. This article shows exactly the opposite, actually. If we roll up our sleeves and make homemade pasta, cookies, or just about any other food, it costs a whole lot less than buying the pre-made versions. Not to mention the pride of putting a from-scratch meal on the table.
