Kitchen Tour: Kittie's Precision Micro KitchenNew York | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn Kittie lives in a 170 square foot studio, so you can imagine how small her kitchen must be. The original Pullman kitchen dated from the 1920's and was like a narrow closet behind french doors. When Kittie renovated her apartment, she knew she wanted to build a working kitchen regardless of how miniaturized it would have to be. Unlike many New Yorkers who use their micro apartment as an excuse to eat out every night, Kittie feels strongly that it "is possible to make real meals in a tiny studio kitchen, even with no range and minimal equipment."
Od kiedy tylko dowiedziałem się o istnieniu broni nuklearnej i ogólnych sposobach jej użycia, zastanawiałem się, jak by wyglądał świat po pełnoskalowej wojnie nuklearnej. Czy życie na Ziemi zostałoby unicestwione do ostatniej bakterii? A może przetrwają owady i bakterie, może trochę ryb głębinowych , ale wyginą wszystkie wyżej zorganizowane gatunki? A może w ogólnym zarysie życie na Ziemi przetrwa bez większych strat, tylko wyginie ludzkość? Być może ludzkość też przetrwa, tylko zginie cywilizacja? Czy możliwe jest, że nawet cywilizacja nie zginie, tylko dozna potężnego wstrząsu i zmiany? Czy można przeżyć wojnę nuklearną?
This post is from staff writer Sierra Black. Sierra writes about frugality, sustainable living, and getting her kids to eat kale at Childwild.com.

He was talking about consumable goods like shampoo and dish soap. The 50-Percent Solution
While reading Amy Dacyczyn’s The Complete Tightwad Gazette this afternoon, I learned a great new money hack. Dacyczyn (pronounced “decision”) advocates using a grocery price book to save big bucks at the supermarket. A grocery price book is an ongoing list of the items you most commonly purchase and how much you paid for them. This list allows you to detect price cycles, spot bargains, and plan your shopping trips for maximum savings. Dacyczyn explains: My price book is a small loose-leaf binder.

How to Survive in the Post-Apocalyptic World | DelSquacho I ordered VOIP service from Comcast the other day, and the lady who sold it to me said I would be getting a new cable modem in the mail, along with a return address label so I could mail back the old one. I was expecting something about the size of a shoebox to show up in the mail and was more than a little surprised to see this 24″ x 24″ x 24″ monstrosity delivered: Read More I think it is common knowledge that TV and entertainment is a copycat industry. If you don’t believe me, one needs to look no further than the Fox network, which at last count, featured seventeen talent competitions run by d-list celebrity judges and a rude foreigner that seemed to take great pleasure in berating everyone in the most obnoxious manner imaginable.
Schmoozing 101: Tips for shy techies By Mary K. Pratt July 27, 2009 12:01 AM ET Computerworld - Gail Farnsley seems like a natural at networking.

Five Best Places to Set Up Shop Online It's all about the self-hosting. A bit more work, but there is just something professional about having a URL that has your business name (or whatever), a ".com" and that's it. Of course, this precludes getting the word out quick through Etsy and similar services, but there are still lots of options for marketing. Also, Paypal has merchant tools that are really simple to use. My wife uses Paypal as her inventory/billing tool, and it works well for her. To be fair, using Paypal for inventory would break down quickly for a high-volume site with a wide variety of merchandise, but at the level just above Weekend Hobby it works well.

Master the Art of Working Remotely - Gina Trapani by Gina Trapani | 10:23 AM June 16, 2009 Over the past five years I’ve worked off-site and online for employers across the country using email, chat, and web-based collaboration apps. My work life has been the envy of my traditional nine-to-five friends. While they suit up in an office-appropriate outfit, grab the briefcase, and brave a commute every weekday, I get to work from home (and my employers get to save money on office space). But working with people in different cities and time zones with minimal face time presents a whole new set of challenges.
CDs - Rip them and sell them/donate them. DVDs - Rip them and sell them/donate them. Movies - VHS - are gone, ditched the player and if I didnt get them on DVD, its either (a) hard to find (then keep it) or (b) not worth watching again Games - I'd rip them as per DVDs, but I only have about 10 or so that I have kept. For ripping DVDs and Games (on DVDs) I rip the entire image, and put on USB hard drive. (You could scan the manuals/activation keys if needed and store in the same folder as the .ISO).

How to Get Rid of Ear Mites I used to think pets that walked in circles and attacked their ears were cute, until I did a little bit of research about getting rid of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis). Ear mites are a bit scary, actually, if they’re allowed to do enough damage to your pet. As it turns out, cats and dogs can get an infection from ear mites if they aren’t treated, doing damage to their middle ear which throws off their balance and either causes them to not walk or to walk in circles constantly. Worse still, ear mites have been implicated as the cause of allergic reactions similar to those of dust mites. In fact, many people who test positive for dust mite allergies also test positive for ear mite allergies.
