Clear Mushroom For Your garden using Vases And Bowls

What a clever way to use old invaluable glassware. Thrift stores are full of it. They often dump it by the trash can full. Before using glassware I plead with you to make sure the glass has no value. But if it does not there are endless ways to make these. Use epoxy to attach the bowl to the vase. If they are too heavy you may need to bury the base a little bit into the soil to help them stand up. If they break they are easy and cheap to replace. The designs are endless. I imagine someone handy could figure out a way to light these up. Maybe pain with a clear glow in the dark paint? Can you imaging a garden with a bunch of these throughout at night time all lit up.

Reinforcing Your Door For Safety

Many people do not know that the plate that your door knob goes into is usually attached with a short screw like seen in the picture. This does not provide adequate protection if an intruder is trying to kick in your door. It is a simple fix and almost anyone can do it. You just need to unscrew the short screw and replace it with a four to five inch screw. This takes the screw all the way into the door jam. It will be harder for someone to kick through it with these in place. Now, that does not mean that they can’t it just means that it will be harder to do so. If you are inside and someone tries to kick the door in it may give you a chance to grab your phone and either run out back or to a secure place within your current location.

Child Safety – With Large Crowds – Getting Help

I saw this and wanted to share it. What a quick and easy way to provide a way for your lost child to find his or her way back to you. Especially if they are young. Just write contact information for you and cover in a liquid bandage type product. It will stay good for the day and provide emergency personnel a way to get a hole for you if your child goes lost at amusement parks, fair or other crowed place.

I have also heard of another way to do this. For you to buy a per minute cell phone just for a child to have on them in case they are lost. Have your contact information listed on the phone. You can call them and they can tell emergency personnel that the contact information is in their phone. I would personally get a phone and case that could be attached to a lanyard or belt loop somehow so it can’t get lost.
