Tuesdays Tips....



From Women's Day:

What you can do with toothpaste.

1.Soothe a bug bite. Apply a pea size dollop of minty toothpaste to the spot.
2.Freshen you finger and it eliminates garlic smell.
3.Nix crayon stains on walls.
4.Display artwork - dab of toothpaste to each  corner and position - take gently take it down - wash away.
5.Polish jewelry.

I use it to clean my tennis shoes and I have heard some people use it as putty for nail holes!

From Redbook

So you can't find your favorite makeup?  Not to worry there is hope.

Three Custom Color Specialist can re-create nearly anything, from concealer to blush to gloss.
First, you go online to see if they have your make up archived.  If not, you'll need to send them a dime-size smear of your dwindling supply.  Prices start at $60 for two tubes. For details, go to threecustom.com. By M. Oliva

IMPORTANT TIP - Redbook -

Try not to wake up before 5 a.m.

"One friend of mine, a CEO of a very successful company, prides himself on getting out of bed at 4:30 a.m. to get a jump on his business competition. I told him, If you don't let yourself sleep till 5, you're setting yourself up for a heart attack.' He laughed, 'I'm too rich to die!'  But he listened when I told him that most people's internal clock resets itself every morning at approximately 5 a.m.  Wake up before that and your stress hormones can surge - this is one reason why most heart attacks occur around 3 or 4 a.m.  Making this adjustment won't destroy your career, but potentially will save your life."
Lisa Matzer, M.D. cardiologist in Los Angeles.

IMPORTANT TIP FROM CHATTY:

For all my bloggers, but especially for my Georgia bloggers - we went to Mercier's Apple Orchard's on Sunday.     It was fantastic - in the Blue Ridge Mountains and if you can't get there they do have a website you can order the best tasting food ever!  lol

From North Carolina. (for a few weeks)

I laughed loudly at the meals on wheels. Wonder what that lion is thinking?

Cathy said...

Meal on wheels made me laugh. The pictures from the orchard look really cool.

My Journey With Candida said...

Great tips for the toothpaste. I am going to try it on bug bites. It seems every time I step out side... The bugs flock to me.

Rose said...

The Meals on Wheels gave me the chuckles this morning.

Thanks for the toothpaste tips.

NanaDiana said...

Love the picture of your "farmer" and those are great tips. I have often used white toothpaste to fill nail holes! xo Diana

Terri D. said...

I really miss visiting the apple orchard in the Fall. It's the one thing Florida doesn't have that I miss. My favorite apple is the Cortland, and I never see them on for sale on orchard websites - yours included. Sigh.

Great photos and I'm glad the lion is just observing the people! ;)

SavannahGranny said...

GS seems ready to take a ride on that tractor. The orchard looks great. I miss that about being in south Georgia.
Thanks for the toothpaste tips.
Love ya girl, Ginger

Ginny said...

Gosh, so good today! Your apple orchard shots are beautiful, I can't wait for more! Love love love your Snoopy quote and Meals On wheels!!!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Andy is growing up so straight and tall. These photos are great. My time away was used well and things are much better now.

The family issue hasn't changes but we don't have to be too concerned now.

Take care my sweet!

Betsy Adams said...

The lift today is so true.... We do put alot of our energies dealing with those negative people, don't we????? Dang.

Funny one today showing the lion..... ha ha

Didn't know about all of the uses of toothpaste. Interesting. Thanks.

Hugs,
Betsy

Gorgeous orchard!

Sharon said...

Especially enjoyed this today.

You mentioned that people use toothpaste as putty for nail holes. And then you talked about creating your own makeup. I want to know if you could put the two together and make some sort of wrinkle-filler??? Hey, I'm trying.

Meal on wheels. Love it. Gives a whole new meaning to those Hungry Man meals. Perhaps it should be, "Man Hungry??"

xo

Laurie said...

I still can't get the meals on wheels one of of my head! Yikes!

TARYTERRE said...

That lion looks hungry.

Katie Clooney said...

Toothpaste also gets rid of pimples. Will tell my Mister who rises at 430AM every day the heart attack story. I want that bucket full of puppies!!

Ann said...

I'm far too cheap to pay $60 for make up. But then I rarely wear it any way.
If I didn't get up until 5 a.m. I would be late for work. We're up at 4:20 every morning

Jim said...

Hi Sandie ~~ I'm sort of back from August Break but not all the way.

This is a neat post. My internal clock resets itself at about eight in the morning. If Mrs. Jim doesn't bring coffee then I will have to get out of bed and get my own.

barbara woods said...

apples up there have the best taste

Blondee said...

Great tips!!

And, I just love your bucket of puppies!! :)

Denise said...

Awesome tips.

mail4rosey said...

I love Charlie Brown. :)

Eesh oy on the cardiologist tip. I'd be so sad if I lost that time in the morning (early riser). I believe it, but again, eesh oy!! Things to consider...

Cool tractor pic. :)

barbara l. hale said...

That apple orchard is beautiful! Nice place for a day trip.

mail4rosey said...

Oh yeah, I forgot to say I used toothpaste to get Sharpie marker off of my new wood table ( a tip I found on Google ). I was so so so happy it worked.

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Big chuckle from the meal on wheels:@)

Miss Debbie said...

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

The toothpaste tips are great, love the meal on wheels just funny.......

Susan said...

This was a nice post, Sandie.

And I'm going to sign up for the Facebook page!

I loved that pathway lined with the blue bottles.

You are amazing. Susan

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

I'm glad I don't wake up till 5:30. I plan on living to 90 so I hope this doctor is right.

Charlie Brown speaks the truth!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That orchard looks like a great little fall trip!
hugs, Linda

Renegades said...

LOl thank you for the laugh!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sandie .. so much we can do with so many 'basic' items - we don't need to buy special stuff .. but great tips/ideas.

Love the lad and the photos of Mercia's are lovely ..

The Lion waiting for the bell to sound for lunch so he can pounce was a great photo!

Cheers Hilary

Lynn said...

My mom and dad used to make a special trip to that orchard when apples were in season. It's a great place.

Lucy said...

Good ideas. I explained why I said 89 on my age. What meant to say was 83 or 89 it would make it a nice burial outfit. I didn't mean to get them mixed up nor try to lie to anyone. Dear Jack caught it.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

Here in Ohio we have lots and lots of Apple Orchards, but I usually wind up buying mine in the grocery store. This year I'm going to make an effort to buy them at the orchards instead. They've got to be much tastier when they are fresh. Your orchard there is in a very scenic place and look like it would be worth the trip just for the view. I do love the Charlie Brown quote at the end of your post...so true.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Interesting facts! That top picture reminded me of the time we had 12 yellow lab puppies. I love the meals on wheels....LOL!

Dee said...

Frank just walked by a saw the picture of the meal on wheels and got a big chuckle. :) I have used toothpaste as putty in nail holes(tiny ones) Not sure about using to display artwork(?) The bug bite application sounds interesting...hope i can remember to try it when the occasion arises.

Debbie said...

Oh my goodness, Sandie. I just realized this AM that I had missed this. I am so glad I checked back. I need to take that 5:00 one to heart, and more importantly so does my husband!! He gets up early to run every day... for his heart. Thanks!

Catherine said...

Dear Sandie, Love the toothpaste tips. Good to know about the 5 a.m. tip, though stress will do it too. The laugh and the lift, Blessings dear. Catherine xo

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Love the pics. Yes when I lived in apartments I did use tooth paste for nail holes.
