    Some real interesting tips.....

    Reheat Pizza

    Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove, set
    heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No
    soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.

    Easy Deviled Eggs

    Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all
    broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up
    mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg.
    Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.

    Expanding Frosting

    When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with
    your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to
    frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less
    sugar/calories per serving.

    Reheating refrigerated bread

    To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place
    them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will
    keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

    Newspaper weeds away

    Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet
    newspapers: put layers around the plants overlapping as you go cover
    with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some
    gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers.

    Broken Glass

    Use a dry cotton ball to pick up little broken glass pieces of glass -
    the fibers catch ones you can't see!

    No More Mosquitoes

    Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.

    Squirrel Away

    To keep squirrels from eating your plants sprinkle your plants with
    cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the
    squirrels won't come near it.

    Easier 's

    When you throw a bridal/baby shower, buy a pack of thank you cards for
    the guest of honor. During the party, pass out the envelopes and have
    everyone put their address on one. When the bride/new mom sends the
    thank you's, they're all addressed!

    MINE!!!!!

    If you purchase a new bike for your child, place their picture inside
    the handle bar before placing the grips on. If the bike is stolen and
    later recovered, remove the grip and there is your proof who owns the
    bike.

    Flexible vacuum

    To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an
    empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can
    be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.

    Reducing Static Cling

    Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have
    a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when
    wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and - voila - static
    is gone.

    Measuring Cups

    Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill it with
    hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry the cup. Next, add
    your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes
    right out.

    Foggy Windshield?

    Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the
    glove box of your car. When the windows fog, rub with the eraser!
    Works better than a cloth!

    Reopening envelope

    If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include
    something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for
    an hour or two. Voila! It unseals easily.

    Conditioner

    Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's a lot cheaper than
    shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great
    way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you
    tried it in your hair...

    Good-bye Fruit Flies

    To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass fill it 1/2" with
    Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dishwashing liquid, mix well. You
    will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!

    Get Rid of Ants

    Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it
    "home," & can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so,
    esp. if it rains, but it works & you don't have the worry about pets
    or small children being harmed!

    Take baby powder to the beach

    Keep a small bottle of baby powder in your beach bag. When you're
    ready to leave the beach sprinkle yourself and kids with the powder
    and the sand will slide right off your skin.

                  I'm single too, but there are limits to what I am willing to explore. Shaving my legs and wearing panty hose and skirts are DEFINATELY beyond those limits!!!

                    Laugh all you want but you should try the super queen size panty hose in a cold shop. Other clothes over them of course. How do you think women can go out on a really cold day with only them on over their legs? (Other clothes over them of course ) As far as shaving my legs, I did when I did long distance bike racing. Cuts down the wind resistance or somethng, so I was told.

                      I'm with Chuck on this one,

                      My ex-wife suggested I wear some of her pantyhoses when shoveling the snow outside on really cold days when we were superintendants. I didn't have longjohns.

                      They do keep you warmer.

                      And there's nothing wrong with being in touch with your feminine side

                          mmmmmmmmmm Marcel, I wonder, maybe we could envent some nylons, for men. I can still remmeber, when my 2 brothers stole my hair spray in school. I thought they would be lauphed out of school. but walla. it did look pretty nice. Chuck, it takes a big man to addmit to shaving his legs on a public forum. of cours no one wants their hair getting cought up in the spocks. the reason I wonted to try the conditioner thing, was for camping. were there is not much water, and well you know. works great. It didn't work so great on my saw though.

                              panty hose

                              As I recall Joe Namath wore panty hose for some kind of leg condition (can't remember the details) But as a women who has worn panty hose when it was cold, I can tell you that having a cold wind blow up my skirt, panty hose didn't keep anything warm.
