Clever Home Remedies

(It's the weekend! You probably know that means we get a little loony around here and have some fun. Maybe even poke some fun. Beware. . .)


1. If you are choking on an ice cube simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat. Presto! The blockage will instantly remove itself.

2. Avoid cutting yourself slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold while you chop.

3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by using the shower.

4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives. After that you will be afraid to cough.

7. You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Daily Thought: Some people are like Slinkies--not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs

    Thanks for the laugh this morning. And DO NOT use the shower as a toilet. EVER!

    I like the daily thought. I had an encounter with one at a red light the other day. Good thing I lost the use of my bird years ago.

    And have a burned and scalded mouth in the process. Uh I'll think on that one.
