  • "Nothing new- just more durable and easier to care for than a pizza stone. I bought a bigger one made by Pizzacraft over a year ago on Amazon for $45 and would do it again. It does have a finish of some sort on it so it hasn't rusted. When we order pizza, we get it unsliced and throw it right on the steel  for a few minutes for a crisp crust. I hate soggy or undercooked pie crusts- this fixes that, cookies bottoms are better browned. Haven't roasted vegetables though- use the grill for that."

  • "I am on the board of a Friends of the Library group with 7 branches. We have monthly sales to rehome books that are removed from circulation and donated by the community. The books are priced from $.25 to $2, and the sales usually bring in over $2,000, moving hundreds of books. The proceeds go to the libraries to pay for literacy programs.  A sale will start with about 350 boxes of books and we'll still have about 150 boxes left. Like most FOLs, we have to get rid of the leftovers. Hundreds of these are donated to the community but there are still a lot of leftovers. We don't keep them because more donations are on the way! FOLs all over the country struggle with what to do with leftovers. We have given them to thrift stores to the point they are overwhelmed. Now our group pays a company to take them. I don't know what happens to them then but there are thousands of books waiting to be sorted by topic and then boxed to go to the next sale.                                            I own thousands of books that I love. I bought many of them from the FOL, sometimes just because they were old and I didn't want to think about a future where they might be shredded or incinerated. I like to hold books, smell them, rifled through the pages, think about where they were before I bought them. But being an old book doesn't make it a good story and a stack of printed paper, held together with glue and string, doesn't make a book precious. "

  • "No buttons and black or red interiors are deal breakers for me. I grew up in a desert and don't want a hot interior, and when I drive, I want to watch the road, not the a.c. to see if I've pushed the button enough times!"

  • "One advantage of putting wire over the feeding area is that it reduces waste. I've watched birds sweep their beaks through the feed, tossing it out onto the ground (which my chickens and guineas appreciate) until they find exactly what they want. Now I add wire to feeders with open areas."

  • "No matter how careful I am, I always get cut up when installing chicken wire. And Very small keets can still squeeze through, or when bigger, they start through and get stuck. I ended up using the extruded fence with the smaller squares. I also learned that 18 keets can disappear very fast. The hens are so protective but careless and lose their babies. They also sound too much like dog squeaky toys! We kept out last hatching inside the coop and enclosed run until they"
