Who Knew ? Did you?

Who Knew ? Did you? 

Now I know I have OLA friends and family who will appreciate this information. It will be interesting to see how many knew these amazing facts.
For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: Get warm water and put Dawn dish washing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won’t
refreeze. (Wish I had known this for the last 40 years!). ============ ========= ========= ===== To remove old wax from a glass candle holder, put it in the freezer for a few hours. Then take the candle holder out and turn it upside down. The wax will fall out. ============ ========= ========= =====
Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped in baking soda. Comes off with little effort (elbow grease that is!). ============ ========= ========= ===== Permanent marker on appliances/counter tops (like store receipt BLUE!) rubbing alcohol on paper towel. ============ ========= ========= ===== Whenever I purchase a box of S.O.S Pads, I immediately take a pair of scissors and cut each pad into halves. After years of having to throw away rusted and unused and smelly pads, I finally decided that this would be much more economical. Now a box of S.O.S pads last me indefinitely! In fact, I have noticed that the scissors get ‘sharpened” this way!
============ ========= ========= ===== Blood stains on clothes? Not to worry! Just pour a little hydrogen peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood. Works every time! ============ ========= ========= ===== Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal for inside windows. This way you can tell which side has the streaks.. Straight vinegar will get outside windows really clean. Don’t wash windows on a sunny day. They will dry too quickly and will probably streak.
============ ========= ========= ===== Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely a light scent in each room when the light is turned on. ============ ========= ========= ===== Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will smell freshly washed for weeks to come. You can also do this with towels and linen. ============ ========= ========= ===== Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3 hours prior to burning. ============ ========= ========= ===== To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag and add the flowers. Shake vigorously as the salt will absorb all the dust and dirt and leave your artificial flowers looking like new! Works like a charm!
============ ========= ========= ===== To easily remove burnt on food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to a boil on stove top. ============ ========= ========= ===== Spray your TUPPERWARE with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato based sauces and there won’t be any stains. I do this all the time and it works great!! ============ ========= ========= =====
Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks. ============ ========= ========= ===== When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corn’s natural sweetness.
============ ========= ========= ===== Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away. (I prefer to soak the lime in Gin and rub it on my tongue first) AMEN!!!! ============ ========= ========= ===== Don’t throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces…Left over wine? What’s that? 🙂 you listening to me, T ? ============ ========= ========= ===== To get rid of itch from mosquito bites, try applying soap on the area and you will experience instant relief.
============ ========= ========= ===== Ants, ants, ants everywhere. Well, they are said to never cross a chalk line. So, get your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or wherever ants tend to march. See for yourself.
============ ========= ========= ===== Use air-freshener to clean mirrors. It does a good job and better still, leaves a lovely smell to the shine. ============ ========= ========= ===== When you get a splinter, reach for the scotch tape before resorting to tweezers or a needle. Simply put the scotch tape over the splinter, and then pull it off. Scotch tape removes most splinters painlessly and easily. True! ============ ========= ========= ===== Now look what you can do with Alka Seltzer…Clean a toilet. Drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush and flush.
============ ========= ========= ===== Clean a vase. To remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet, fill with water, and drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets. ============ ========= ========= ===== Polish jewelry. Drop two Alka Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and immerse the jewelry for two minutes. ============ ========= ========= ===== Clean a thermos bottle.. Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka Seltzer tablets, and let soak for an hour (Or longer, if necessary). ============ ========= ========= ===== Unclog a drain. Clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka Seltzer tablets down the drain followed by a cup of Heinz White Vinegar.
Wait a few minutes, and then run the hot water. ============ ========= ========= =====
Makes you wonder about ingesting Alka Seltzer, doesn’t it?

2000 Seawind 3000

t is an amphibian (flying boat) and can land on land or water. The plane has 140 hours of time on everything (engine, propeller, frame, equipment, etc.) as everything was brand new from the factory when the plane was built and finished in 2000 (by professionals in Florida). The total cost to me in having it built was over $350,000. I am offering it for $230,000. It is like new both in appearance and in handling. I am selling it because I am 85 years old and no longer able to fly. If you want more information just give me an e-mail requesting what you want. It has two Garmin navigational radios, an engine monitor (giving you cylinder heat, oil pressure and heat, etc.) and cruises at 75% power at 160 knots per hour. All in all… (1) While the airplane is a “kit” plane, it was built by professionals who do nothing but build airplanes (mostly Seawinds) and allow you to do some of the minor construction in their factory. It was built in Florida. (2) The cost of having it built was $350,000.00 and is probably the finest SEAWIND flying. (3) The assembly instructions were followed exactly except we redesigned the cowling to give better airflow to the engine so it does not overheat (a problem with many other Seawinds). (4) All the equipment, including the engine, was brand new direct from the factory and the finest you could buy. (5) The plane has been hangared in it’s own private heated hangar all its life when not flying. (6) The plane has only 140 hours of operation since built. (7) It was been annualed each year by one of the world’s top aircraft mechanics (in demand all over the world) and one of the original Seawind builders. (8) It is all fibreglass and is an amphibian (lands on land or water [flying boat]) (9) It has hydraulic steering and wheel uplift and downlift JLF001
