What do Pineapples, Papaya, Kiwi & Figs Have in Common?

These 4  fruits contain enzymes that make

great tenederizers for meats.

The proteases enzymes break down the sinew and fibers in the meat.  The most common of these is Bromelain which is the stems of the pineapple that have been juiced.  The fruit contains Bromelain also but the is stem would otherwise be unused.  Wonderful tenderizer without wasting a valuable part of the plant.

Directions Please

Sometimes in my life, I need directions. 

Evidently, it IS Genetic!

Kid #4 just reminded me of this ~ in more ways than one.

It’s easy to get turned around and head the wrong way.

After being awake most of the night, Kid #4 calls bright and early this morning asking about the Navigation on our cell phones.  Now remember, we are only about 1,200 miles apart.  He is on his way for training, in another city, that has to do with  his job promotion.  In order to avoid heavy morning big-city traffic, he took an alternate route.  Wouldn’t you know it, life happens.  More

“Can I Do You a Basement?”

Don’t you love telephone solicitations? 

While living up north, Mr. B received a phone call from a guy asking “Can I Do You a Basement?”  Well, you know how these calls can go.  Mr. B repeatedly tried to tell the guy that he didn’t have a basement.  He knew he calling was trying to set up an appointment to seal  the basement from water.  This is a necessary evil where the water tables are high.

After trying time and time again, the caller would not listen to Mr. B.  He continued to demand an appointment to “Do You a Basement”.  Finally, Mr. B grew weary of the conversation and told him “okay”.  In a joking way he said “sure, I would love you to come do me a basement.”  He was curious to know how this guy was going to make it happen.  Did he have a new method of jacking up the house and digging a basement?  What did the caller have up his sleeve?

Shaving Cream

How many uses are there for

Shaving Cream?

The most logical is:  <drum roll> …shaving!

Now that that one is out of the way, do you know some of the others?

Bathroom Mirrors:  Clean your bathroom mirrors with shaving cream to keep them from fogging up.

Carpet:  Squirt shaving cream on the spot.  Scrub it with a brush.  Wipe it off with a damp cloth. Blot dry with a dry clean towel.  (Spot-test behind a door or in a closet first.)

Fingernail Polish Remover:  Remove the spilled fingernail polish off clothing, carpet, etc. More
