Microwave Safety – Watch the Videos!

There are a few things in life you only do once (I hope).

And, once done, occasionally you’re too embarrassed to share it with people.

I’m not one of those people though. I like sharing things that may be stupid, but have a little humour in it, even if it’s only for the other person.

So, here are 3 things you should NEVER do with a microwave that you may otherwise be tempted to do, with a couple of videos to prove it!

Coffee Art – It will make you thirsty!

Not really a recipe, but I found this link while browsing the internet and I just HAD to share it with someone.

So, I’m sharing it with all of you.

Whoever this barrista is, he has skills. Just watch this video to see how he takes the art of making a good coffee to a whole other level!

Organic Cleaning Products

I may sound like a Woolworths fan boy, but I’m only using their products as an example in this article because we actually use them (and love them) in our house. I try not to write about things I can’t personally vouch for.

Woolworths has a range of organic cleaning products (which it looks like they’ve named “earth friendly“) that has a couple of benefits.

Woolworths Foods is doing SOMETHING right

Woolworths LogoThis article applies to South Africans because of the products I’m talking about. ESPECIALLY since Woolworths in England has closed up shop (last I heard) after 99 years of business.

At the bottom of this post I tell you of 2 Woolworths Foods products that you HAVE to try. If you do, let me know if you agree with me…

What are your favourite foods from Woolworths? Do you even shop at Woolworths?

There are a few options here in SA:

Pruning Roses

I have a new eBook that is exclusive to subscribers of this website.

It’s title is “How to Prune Roses” and is about 13 pages (depending on when you download it) and includes photos.

It’s main purpose is to give you some sort of guidance when it comes to pruning roses. The first time I did it, I went on a 1-day course, and I’m really glad I did. I don’t think I would have had the guts to prune my roses as “drastically” as I was shown.

So, I thought I would share a bit of what I learnt with you. It’s not comprehensive, but rather is to be used as a guide so that when you prune your roses, you have an idea of what to expect, and what the end result should look like.

When do you prune your roses

Have you had a problem with Maggots?

This site gets an average of 300 visits a day from people who have questions on how to get rid of maggots.

You may think that’s weird, but believe it or not, it’s easy to get maggots, and you don’t have to have a dirty house.

If you’re thinking how people could possibly get maggots, it’s really quite easy. Perhaps you missed the garbage disposal pickup day, or your cat has killed a bird that you weren’t aware of. Or, as happened in our complex, a neighbour ran over a bullfrog and didn’t pick up the dead body, and the flies had a FEAST.

So it may not even be your problem!

Because of the number of visitors seeking help, I decided to move the information over to a new website dedicated to maggots.

If you’d like to take a look, go to www.maggots.co.za

And, if you happen to land on this page looking for help on how to get rid of maggots, the main article on the new site to take a look at is this one:
