And they're not the only ones. Did you know, for instance, that the oils in avocados more closely resemble our own skin's oils than any product in the beauty aisle does? Or that the mild acidity in lemon is an effective — and gentler — alternative to chemical-laden products? For all hair types "The [raw] egg is really the best of all worlds," says Janice Cox, author of "Natural Beauty at Home". To use: For normal hair, use the entire egg to condition hair; use egg whites only to treat oily hair; use egg yolks only to moisturize dry, brittle hair, Cox says. For dull hair Styling products (as well as air pollution) can leave a film that both saps moisture and dulls shine — but dairy products like sour cream and plain yogurt can help reverse this damage. For itchy scalp For limp or fine hair For oily or greasy hair
Huevos Rancheros - Food & Drink - msn Maybe I just have Mexican food on the brain after my trip earlier this month? Or maybe I am just obsessed with it all the time anyways, but I am on a pretty major spree. And yesterday when I posted all about how to make Restaurant Style Mexican Black Beans, it was only expected that I come up with some way for you to use those black beans today. And it is a really great way, if I do say so myself! And is if those things are great as is- the homemade black beans take it over the top. I also realized while making them, that this would be an absolutely GREAT recipe to make for a lot of people at once- like if you were having a brunch or something. With the weekend here, consider whipping up a batch for your friends or family on Sunday morning! OK, this is how you make Huevos Rancheros: Heat up the black beans. In a medium heavy skillet or nonstick pan, fry the tortillas until crispy over medium-high heat, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Spoon the hot black beans over the tortillas. Ingredients
Bottle Drip Irrigation | I prefer to have the bottle standing right-way-up as I think it looks nicer and it keeps debris out of the bottle thus keeping the holes from blocking. The materials: * 2 litre plastic soft-drink bottle or water bottle * Sharp small screwdriver, pointed hole-maker or drill This can be used in container gardening, raised bed gardens and open vegetable gardens. Using your pocket knife, make 2 small slits in the bottom of your bottle. Dig a hole next to your tomato plant. This will slowly deep-water your tomato plants and most other vegetable plants. You can learn more about this on another website. Only two very small holes are needed at the lowest place on the bottle. I prefer to leave the lids off. Place bamboo stakes next to each bottle. Here I am making another hole slightly higher up the bottle. However, if I remove the lid, water will come out this hole as well as the holes in the base. You can make larger holes, and partly fill the bottle with coarse-sand or soil to slow the flow.
Buttermilk Pancake Recipe | POPSUGAR Food While many resort to pancake mix when making a special weekend breakfast, homemade pancakes are a must. Here's the little-known secret: the batter takes just as long to make as a boxed mix, and the result is infinitely better.

Once all of the pancakes are made, stack them high and serve them with a slab of butter and authentic maple syrup.

American Dog Trainers Network -- Twelve Tips for a Well Behaved Dog - StumbleUpon I) Start training your puppy early on. While old dogs can be taught new tricks, what's learned earliest, is often learned quickest and easiest. Moreover, the older the dog, the more bad habits will likely need to be "un-learned". When it comes to raising and training a dog, an ounce of problem prevention is certainly worth a pound of cure! 2) Train your dog gently and humanely, and whenever possible, teach him using positive, motivational methods. 3) Does your dog treat you like "hired help" at home? 4) Avoid giving your dog commands that you know you cannot enforce. 5) One command should equal one response, so give your dog only one command (twice max!) 6) Avoid giving your dog combined commands which are incompatible. 7) When giving your dog a command, avoid using a loud voice. NOTE: Many owners complain that their dogs are "stubborn", and that they "refuse to listen" when given a command. 9) Correct or, better yet, prevent the (mis)behavior, don't punish the dog.
