  • How to make sure my indoor dog stays warm in winter?

    Best answer: Keep your dog indoors unless she is doing her business outside. Then let her directly back inside the house. The assumption is that your house is heated, and the temperature inside the house would be warm enough for you. If that's the case then it ought to be warm enough for the dog. If it's an especially... show more
    Best answer: Keep your dog indoors unless she is doing her business outside. Then let her directly back inside the house.

    The assumption is that your house is heated, and the temperature inside the house would be warm enough for you. If that's the case then it ought to be warm enough for the dog. If it's an especially small breed subject to getting chilled maybe you can put a little jacket on the dog while inside the crate. Or put the crate near but definitely not on top of a heating vent because you don't want the dog to overheat either.

    If the dogs especially small when she goes outside be sure she has a jacket on and if you feel her paws are called also get little booties. Then get her back inside right away.

  • Can anyone suggest a good plug in Rodent, Spider and Insect repellent?

    Best answer: About any are effective for rodents and the way to go unless you are keeping pet rodents and their kin. Seems they do have some effect with insects like cockroaches, but not many other pest insects. A house spider here and there is probably the best natural exterminator you can have, worth a few about.

    I bought a set of the first listed below, and they do indeed work for rodents, and did see a decline in pest bugs.
    (a little spider actually webbed one of these so don't expect a miracle)
    Their range is a bit limited to a single room, kitchen, pantry, batroom and perhaps bedrooms near closets, no more pests.

  • Hiding money in house?

    Best answer: I'm not sure I would hide money under a carpet or throw rug. It's too easy for that rug to get moved or tossed aside if a thief, house cleaner, or furniture delivery person comes into the home, and there goes your savings.

    Best answer: I'm not sure I would hide money under a carpet or throw rug. It's too easy for that rug to get moved or tossed aside if a thief, house cleaner, or furniture delivery person comes into the home, and there goes your savings.

    I would consider buying yourself a small safe or lock box, one that can be bolted down to the ground or onto a wall. Then you install that in your crawlspace or bedroom closet of your home. My personal favorite is putting that above a floating tile ceiling in a finished basement, bolted to the floor joists.

    If you can't do that because you are renting or don't have such a place, then you have to look at concealment rather than securing it. Let's say I want to leave a few $$$ bills in a safe spot in my home. There are fake cans, bottles, even power outlets that you can use to store money in. Just make sure it's not something that someone might reach for to use while they are in your home... A thief may decide to drink a soda pop. A cleaning lady may grab that bathroom cleaner, that sort of thing.

    You might be interested in watching an episode or two of "It Takes a Thief", a series that was on Discovery Channel from 2005 to 2007. It was hosted by two former burglars, who show people how easy it is for a thief to break into their homes, and then shows them what they can do to try and protect themselves.

    This is a link to the YouTube video - Season 1 Episode 1 in case you are interested.

    Best answer: never - but not just for the fire hazard.. unless they are 100% beeswax candles, they are polluting your air
    Most of the candles on the market are made with paraffin wax, derived from petroleum, and scented with synthetic fragrances, also derived from petroleum. In a study by the American Chemical Society, researchers found that the petroleum-based candles emitted varying levels of cancer-causing toluene and benzene, as well as other hydrocarbon chemicals called alkanes and alkenes, which are components of gasoline and can irritate respiratory tracts and trigger asthma. Not something you want to breathe in.

    Best answer: Most subdivisions are ranch homes, newer ones are mostly contemporary ranch. Contemporary ranch homes tend to be single-story from the front but with a walkout basement from the back and have a great room with vaulted ceilings and, as a major distinction from midcentury ranch homes, have complex rooflines with multiple gables to not make it look so much like a box.

  • How do I get rid of my wasp curse?

    When I was about 4 years old I accidentally kicked a wasp nest and was stung hundreds of times, somehow surviving.

    When I was about 4 years old I accidentally kicked a wasp nest and was stung hundreds of times, somehow surviving. After this, wasps and bees seem to attack me everywhere I go, without provocation. On my 16th birthday a wasp flew straight into my ear, got stuck and stung me. In my bed room, every couple of days, there is exactly one wasp that makes it into my bed, sometimes stinging me. I have looked everywhere in my house for a nest of some kind, there is none. I do not keep food in my room, I keep it very clean. There are no nests on the outside of my house, or underneath. This afternoon I drove to buy wasp killing spray, immediately after I left the store parking lot I got a flat tire. Am I cursed because I kicked that nest all those years ago? Is there some scientific explanation? Is there some ritual I can perform to appease them? Should I have died that day and are they now trying to finish the job? Please help.

  • What is under my porch, and why are there windows for it?

    What is under my porch, and why are there windows for it?

    Best answer: I believe the windows were just for access to under the porch area and for no other reason because there is not any access otherwise. Nothing IS under there but maybe some dirt or a shallow foundation, perhaps. It could have been a design feature for air circulation purposes only, but over the years, people found... show more
    Best answer: I believe the windows were just for access to under the porch area and for no other reason because there is not any access otherwise. Nothing IS under there but maybe some dirt or a shallow foundation, perhaps. It could have been a design feature for air circulation purposes only, but over the years, people found that useless and covered them to prevent animals from living under the porch if windows broke. There is no logical reason for the windows other than aesthetic design, air circulation and to prevent animals from entering the space.
