Another St. Louis Police shooting of a black man just 5 miles away from the Ferguson, MO shooting that's the cause of so much unrest this week. (WARNING: You can watch it on mute and see what happens just fine, but if you watch it with sound there is plenty of vulgar language.)
Lest any of us get on the Irate and Hate Bandwagon, I'm going to give you my...

What You Need to Know About Lice-- By Guest Contributor Jackie K.
What I know now, compared to what I knew in January of 2010, are worlds apart. If you’ve never had the pleasure of being exposed to lice, count your blessing. I never experienced them as a child, nor did I know anyone who had. I do remember, in elementary school, these ladies coming into our...

Everyone has the right to defend themselves.
100% of ALL firearm “accidents” occur as a result of someone violating one of the four most critical safety rules in the ownership and use of a firearm.

A reader asks a question about preserving candy without a FoodSaver:
Question: "Hi Kellene, Your site helps me so much, thank you. I know you preserve chocolate and candy. Can I do that with oxygen absorbers in mason jars? if so, should they be unpackaged, like M&Ms?
