Caring For Your Flowers Flowers, like humans, respond best to a little tender loving care. No, you don't have to hug them, but a few basic guidelines will ensure your flowers maintain their perkiness for longer. A good florist will always include some written care details and a sachet of flower food, but there are other things you need to know to get the best out of your flowers. Flower Types Roses Roses should last about a week, but are a little prone to drooping. If they flag, wrap them in a wet newspaper and stand in cool water overnight. Tulips Tulips actually keep growing in the vase, which is why they elongate and curve. This is natural for Tulips and is not a sign of poor quality. Again lasting time should be around a week. If they grow too unwieldy, simply (re-)cut the stems to suit the vase. Carnations Whether it's a standard Carnation, now available in the most funky of colours or spray carnation which look great in a mixed coloured bunch with foliage, these flowers will last for at least two weeks and need very little care. However, like most flowers, carnations are sensitive to ethylene which is naturally emitted by fruits, so try to keep them away from the fruit bowl. Chrysanthemum Another long lasting flower, lasting two to three weeks easy. Available in some divine colours like the amazing lime green Shamrock or the stunning burnt russet Tom Pearce, Chrysanthemum are now one of the 'in' flowers. Remove any drooping or damaged buds to ensure the rest of the head keeps its freshness. Gerbera Otherwise known as Transvaal Daisies. Like the tulip, they are curvy flowers and should be allowed to go with the flow. Some florists will gently wire them to give greater stability, this doesn't affect their vase life which should be around 7 - 10 days. Freesia A really delicate flower that will probably only last a week; but has an amazing smell which improves as the air gets warmer. What you lose in life span, you more than make up for in sheer gorgeousness. Lilies One of the most spectacular flowers around and available in a choice of shapes. Asiatics are the most common, while Orientals have a stylish angular look. Longiflorum are extremely elegant and Calla are one of the most hi-style on the market. Orientals and Asiatics will last the longest. A top grade multi-headed Casablanca can last up to three weeks with buds opening on a regular basis. Expensive but worth it. Lisianthus or Eustoma A relatively new flower, but one which has already made it into the top 10 selling flowers. Available in a range of colours such as white, pink, purple and some lovely bi-colours like white with a purple edging. Lisianthus or Eustoma will last around 7 - 10 days. Like any multi-headed flower you need to remove old heads to give the new buds a chance to open. Daffodils The first hint of spring. A vase of these will add instant light to any room. However they ooze a latex slime, so you shouldn't mix them with other flowers unless you've got one of the special flower foods (or stand them in water for 12 hours or so and don't cut them again.)

Very nice to have in Florida! hahaha, Al thought my mom don't have one I am talking to her about getting one. Nice exercise for your joints. Very relaxfull. Alot of money goes into a pool, so unless you have the extra money for the cemicals and time to keep it up than it can be a hassel, but if you realy want a pool than I say go look and see which one is right for you home. Size, length, and depth is a big thing depending on your homeowners policy if you don't have one than go wild. My mom has to get a sertain pool with her homeowners guide. So pritty much everyones pool down her looks the same. Have fun looking and If you don't already have a pool than hopefully one day you will.

Removing Stickers
If you remove as much of the sticker as possible, you can remove the rest with a little Ben Gay ointment and a blow dryer set on the low heat setting. Also works on carpet
Other products that have been known to remove stickers include WD-40, Oops brand latex paint remover, De-Solve, fingernail polish remover, rubbing alcohol and even peanut butter!

Cleaning Stuffed Animals
Puts kids' stuffed animals inside a pillow case, tie a knot in it and wash them in the washing machine.
You can also freshen the animals by placing them in a paper sack with baking soda and shaking them up good.
If the animal is stuffed with natural fibers it should not be immersed in water, but can be wiped off with a soapy cloth, followed by a clean wet cloth.
Make sure the animal doesn't have torn seams before you put it in the washing machine.
Look for plastic parts before tossing a stuffed animal in the dryer.
Make sure the animal doesn't have a "sound box" or other mechanical parts before you put them in the washing machine and dryer.

Helping Kids Stay Uncluttered
Put away half of your kids' toys and switch them around every few months. They'll have plenty to play with and their room will stay cleaner.
Label boxes, baskets, milk crates, plastic tubs - anything they might store toys in - to teach them how to sort toys and keep them off the floor. Let the kids decorate the containers they use so they will be personal and fun.
Set a short period of time each day or each week that kids have to straighten up their room. Make a game out of it with a timer and give rewards to all kids for jobs well done. It will become a good habit and they'll have fun.
Get the kids to go through their toys periodically and pick out some things that they don't play with anymore. Pack them up and take them somewhere where there are kids who don't have enough toys.
Put bookshelves in every available place where the kids can stack their toys, books, etc. Anything to keep the floor clean.
Teach kids good cleaning habits by being neat and tidy yourself. Hanging up clothes and putting things away after you use them sets a good example.
Assign specific chores to kids and set a limit on when the chore has to be done.
Put hooks and pegs on the backs of room door and on the insides of closet doors for quick hangups when the kids come in.
Let the kids do some "adult" clean up jobs. Sometimes loading the dishwasher or helping mom clean up after a baking session is fun, especially for smaller children and it teaches good habits.
Let kids listen to whatever they want to while they are cleaning. A little noise will be worth a clean room!
Assign each child a towel and make sure they hang it up every day. This saves unnecessary washing.
