Inkling: corrugated composition books I love the idea of covering a plain black speckled composition book and giving it a new look. I’ve also been thinking about doing something with corrugated paper. My plan was to use kraft corrugated paper. Not to be stopped, I found colored corrugated sheets. For this project I used Tacky Glue and cut pieces of the corrugated paper larger than the composition book. The corrugated sheets came in a variety of colors. Hmmm – maybe I should have bought that huge roll after all. Blackfoot Indians (Blackfeet, Siksika) Blackfoot chief Father and son Is the name of the tribe "Blackfoot" or "Blackfeet"? Where did this name come from? "Blackfoot" is the English translation of the word siksika, which means "black foot." It refers to the dark colored moccasins the people wear.

HRI Rugs - Harounian Rugs International Home-made Coconut Oil Deodorant Photo by KerryAnn Foster by KerryAnn FosterCooking Traditional Foods Of all of the body products I have made at home, coconut oil deodorant has made me the happiest. I was thrilled to be able to get away from the paraben and aluminum-filled commercial deodorants but still find something that works well. I’ve used this deodorant and it has worked wonderfully well for everything except the heaviest of manual labor days spent mucking out the coops or clearing brush. I like to use citrus essential oils to scent my deodorant, but lavender or rose are also popular choices among women. If you like your deodorant to be thicker, or you need extra absorbing power, you can add extra baking soda or cornstarch. If you like a lighter deodorant, you can transfer the mixture to a bowl and use a stand mixer or hand mixer to whip air in as the coconut oil cools and hardens. Most people report that this recipe keeps them odor-free all day, regardless of their activity level. Homemade Deodorant

Age Exchange - Internationally Renowned for Work in all Areas of Reminiscence Cooling and Heating Equations Sensible Heat The sensible heat in a heating or cooling process of air (heating or cooling capacity) can be expressed as hs = 1.08 q dt (1) where hs = sensible heat (Btu/hr) q = air volume flow (cfm, cubic feet per minute) dt = temperature difference (oF) Latent Heat The latent heat due to moisture in the air can be expressed as: hl = 0.68 q dwgr (2) or hl = 4,840 q dwlb (3) where hl= latent heat (Btu/hr) q = air volume flow (cfm, cubic feet per minute) dwgr = humidity ratio difference (grains water/lb dry air) dwlb = humidity ratio difference (lb water/lb dry air) 1 grain = 0.000143 lb = 0.0648 g Total Heat - Latent and Sensible Heat Total heat due to both temperature and moisture can be expressed as: ht = 4.5 q dh (4) where ht= total heat (Btu/hr) q = air volume flow (cfm, cubic feet per minute) dh = enthalpy difference (btu/lb dry air) Total heat can also be expressed as: ht = hs + hl = 1.08 q dt + 0.68 q dwgr (5) Example - Heating Air An air flow of one cfm is heated from 32 to 52oF. where

How To Build Your Own Tablet Stylus Advertisement Steve Jobs was quite right when he said “If you see a stylus, they blew it.” While a good touchscreen should never require you to use a stylus for standard operations, there are tasks when using your fingers is a bit awkward. You can find a large selection of tablet styluses online and many are very cheap. Building your own stylus is easy, fun, and you must likely have all the materials at home already. Here is a suggested list of ingredients: old penwire, e.g. from an old electric cablesoft conductive material, e.g. household foama pair of scissors or a cutter So here is what I did. Then I disassembled an old plastic pen. I used wire with about 2.5 times the length of the pen and wrapped it around the foam… …and tested the raw stylus on my tablet to make sure it works. Next, I pulled the wire with its end first through the narrow tip of the pen and wrapped the wire around the outside of the pen, all the way to the bottom. To make it look a little nicer, I trimmed the tip.

Project: Stamped Kraft Book Covers I am always looking for inexpensive solutions for styling and decorating my home. I have built in shelves in between my living room and dining area that I am constantly changing and rearranging. I am working on filling them with odd finds and antiques that i have collected, but I am always looking for new and interesting ways to display my books. I like to display my books like they are decorative objects themselves, and this an easy and inexpensive decorative fix for any hardbound book. The idea started with a roll of kraft paper I bought at Lowes for around 8.00, these roll are sold in their painting section it is called Brown Masking Paper. Follow this link to a great step by step video I found on how to cover a book with brown paper bags. After covering my books I used these great letter stamps I found on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics, but any small letter stamps will do! The lettering will not be perfect but i think it is kind of charming, kind of like type from an old typewriter.
