Did You Know What to do with Stray Socks?

Did you know what to do with stray socks?

It seems that socks disappear on a regular basis, leaving homes with bookoos (beaucoup!) of stray socks. What are some things to do with those single socks, besides just throwing them away? We have used stray socks for puppets, stuffed for snowmen, beanbags and balls, and dusting rags. Any other good ideas for those lonely single socks?

Did You Know Tomorrow is Father's Day?

Did you know tomorrow is Father's Day?

You still have time to get your dad (or father figure) something special. Or a card. Or mow his yard. Or just put a reminder to yourself to at least give him a call tomorrow!

Did You Know About the Mysterious Disappearing Items at our Church?

Did you know about the mysterious missing items at our church?

My mom had gotten a few things together to take to some ladies who are shut in right now due to injuries and illness. She left them in the church kitchen one morning while she did some work at the church building. When she over to get them a few hours later, they were gone! After she got through blowing off steam like a powermax 65 torch, she regrouped and went to the store to replace the missing items. The funniest part of the whole story is that the very same thing happened the very next day!! Now we are laughing about the scenario!

Did You Know You Can Rent Knee Walkers?

Did you know you can rent knee walkers?

These knee walkers, or knee scooters, are for use after surgery. My friend had one after his foot surgery. I had not seen them before but it seems like a good idea for those, like my friend, who have to go back to work after surgery. He works at a school so the knee scooter was a good idea for him. I just learned that these knee scooters are available to rent and knee scooter rental prices were much more reasonable than I thought they would be!

Did You Know About Secret Millionaire?

Did you know about Secret Millionaire?

We just watched an episode of this program where successful business people go out and find people and/or organizations helping people who are in need. The business(wo)man then learns what these folks are doing and finds out their needs. In the end they give a large amount of money to those who they feel can use it. It's a nice show; something positive and inspiring on television!

This is the first summer one of our teens has worked a consistent job. She is lifeguarding on a regular basis with a local pool company. She has her "home" pool but can also pick up extra shifts or work pool parties. She also just got certified to teach swim lessons. She is working 47 hours this first week of summer! Looks like a busy summer for her! And like a job that has a demand for teen workers!

Did You Know A Good Graduation Gift?

Did you know a good graduation gift?

Do you need to buy a gift for one of those hard-to-buy for types? There are tons of "traditional" ideas out there for good graduation gifts, but if you have someone who is an aspiring musician, you might consider the idea to  buy Ibanez Amplifiers which could be the perfect gift for someone looking to take a step to the next level in their musical career after leaving school.
