Carl Belken said about Cope Following a Flood:

I live a half mile away from the Missouri River. This is one of the best articles I have ever seen on flood clean up. I was a city council person and secretary of our lions club during the worst floods ever experienced in our area. I've cleaned, filed insurance claims, saw to it that flooded out families got much needed supplies, and many other things too numerous to mention here. So please take this compliment as coming from someone who has been there.

173.73.21.233 said about Make Deep Fried Eggs:

Great article! I was raised on deep fried eggs, but they were cooked in the bacon grease left from the bacon that accompanied the eggs. Nothing tastes as good as when it is cooked this way! We could even keep the yolk runny but all the white cooked with the basting in the manner you stated. Again, great job!

67.175.95.246 said about Unclog a Bathtub Drain:

Thank you so much for the help in unclogging my bathtub drain. Ordinarily, I would have just called a plumber, but in these trying times, I need to save money. First, I tried to get as much hair out as possible--didn't unclog. Then I covered the drain with hot water and used a plunger. That cleared the drain!!!!!! Thanks so much for the advice.

68.18.122.2 said about Treat a Cold Sore or Fever Blisters:

I found lots of good information in this article. I have struggled with occasional outbreaks for forty years and was never sure if I was doing the right thing. You have given me lots of new options and remedies. It helps to know that others suffer with the same condition.


98.202.223.207 said about Grow a Tomato Plant:

I have been struggling to grow decent tomato's for many years, talked to several nursery gurus, and consulted the co. agent; but still was frustrated with stem end splits, blossom end rot, etc. Your guidance addressed all my problems in specific detailed terms with remedies, and though the season is half gone I will adopt it immediately. My regret is that I did not have this info earlier. At 90 I do not know how many more seasons, if any, there might be; but I have a grand daughter who shares my tomato enthusiasm who will mirror my delight in having your info. Appreciativly, David

24.193.185.50 said about Get Over a Break Up:

I thought some of what you wrote would make me feel worse. But as I read on, what you wrote made me feel like I am a normal person. It made me feel OK. It was really important that I could feel that way. Tonight, I was crying so hard on a random stoop in New York City, that a homeless woman decided she should comfort me. I'm a writer and I write on these sorts of websites too, so I thought I should let you know the good you're doing.

66.75.38.107 said about Unclog a Toilet:

I've "known" how to unclog a toilet for over 30 years -- but how many things do we "learn" once and never revisit, revise, or improve? I had a real difficult one today. I upgraded the plunger before reading your article. That didn't do it. The hot water and detergent did. Thanks, erik in San Diego


24.140.86.246 said about Get an Escaped House Cat to Come Home:

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for your very informative article. My indoor cat had got out of an open door, and had been missing for two weeks when I read your article. I had searched for 4-6 hours a day(and night) and had almost lost all hope of ever seeing her again. I purchased a humane trap, and after catching about every cat in the neighborhood, as well as two raccoons, I finally found her. She has lost a lot of weight and has a scratch on her nose but she seems very happy to be home. Thank you very much and put the word out not to give up!L. Haddix

Thank you so much for writing this. The link randomly showed up on my iGoogle account, right when I was processing a lot of hurt feelings and anger from a break-up. It was divinely sent. The article has been very helpful for me, helping me to acknowledge and accept my feelings as well as to let them go and have a clearer vision of where to go with my life from here.

24.206.111.97 said about Rapidly Learn to Play the Acoustic Guitar Yourself:

I really appreciate the common sense approach and also the 'you can do this' attitude that your writing contains. I am not sure I will go out and purchase a guitar (or try to borrow one from a friend who would maybe have one in a closet) but your posting makes it seem more in the realm of possiblity for me.


Thank you for taking the time to write this!


I hope that this finds you well, enjoying the beauty in early autumn.


Peace.

65.124.131.162 said about Avoid Annoying Other Drivers:

I would like to take a moment to thank you for your efforts to educate people about courteous driving! I recently moved to MN, where people are very friendly UNTIL they get in their cars. I am amazed at how many have no courtesy at all, and your comments about driving in snow made me laugh out loud. May God bless you richly for making such important information concise and friendly.


68.186.13.139 said about Eat Healthy for Life:

I was an R.N. for 30 years, with a passion for educating, and am currently a diabetic controlled only by food choices. In all of my reading, that was the most sensible and concise set of basic instructions I've seen. They can so easily be discussed with the doctor or dietician and modified if necessary, but you give your reader the understanding and control to succeed. Thank you.


67.84.173.237 said about Main Page:

68.50.40.77 said about Take Perfect Lecture Notes:

Thanks! I never went to college and never really learned to take notes... These tips will really help me now that I find myself in a technical management posistion and attend a lot of meetings. This has always been a problem for me and has a negitive impact. Any tips on if you don't spell very good? I tend to spend more time trying to remember how to spell certain words as I write, then listening and actualy writing the note.


68.124.152.63 said about Take Perfect Lecture Notes:

Thank you very much for your thorough answer. I got through high school, college and grad school using outlining that a thoughful Latin teacher taught us. I work with middle school kids in a school where more than half the kids are failing one or more subjects. (I am dedicated to preventing youth violence.) I am going to make your advice available to them. I rather doubt that they will take it all, but every little bit helps.

Liz said about Teach Your Children to Do Laundry:

Great article! worked well on my kids, and now, just like you said, they LOVE doing the laundry. The newest member to the laundry-washing organization (as my 8-year-old calls it) actually wears 2 different pairs of clothes each day, and spills things on everything (much to my displeasure) so that he can do the laundry more often! thanks for your help. it will always be remembered.

24.4.175.0 said about Deal With Being in Prison:

I can't really explain why, but running across this document reminded me how much we, as a society, need more straight forward information about topics that may not be subject suitable for ladies Sunday tea but are nonetheless needed. We need less bias, less tutorials on someone's idea of morality, and more practical, real-world discussion about what is a part of our lives and not what we want to believe or pretend to be otherwise. Thanks for having courage and being genuine. Some people *do* appreciate your taking the time.


Sincerely,

75.2.3.7 said about Make Play Dough:

This was great! It brought back so many fond memories of making play dough for my (now) 23, 19, and 17 year olds when they were little. It was especially great since I knew exactly what was in it and didn't have to worrry if they ate a bit of it (when they were toddlers). We also used to finger paint with pudding, "foot" paint on big papers on the eat in kitchen floor, and so many other inexpensive things for a young family with one income. Thanks again for the memories.

71.199.192.43 said about Figure Out Your Sexual Orientation:

A quick note of thanks! I recently learned about this site from my local news (WFAA, Gadget Corner, Dallas), and on a lark typed in sexual orientation. To my surprise several hits came back, including yours. I was pleased with the tone of your article, and read it without aversion. Your analogy between a Pride parade and a Halloween party was a ‘light bulb’ moment for me. I’m a 32 year old, divorced guy who’s been confused of my sexual identity since childhood. I’ve had GLBT friends over the years, and while being great people, their ‘out & in your face’ attitude quickly became a broken record bore. I’ve been drug to my fair share nightclubs & even a Pride parade in San Francisco. While I support everyone’s right to be themselves, I believe the right to express ends at the next person’s nose! When I made the mistake of talking to a few friends about my feelings and questions, they seemed to feel the need to pull me out into the ‘gay’ world. I’m still not sure quite what that means! We all live in the same world!! I feel ‘if only everyone’ (like that will ever happen) would look less at people’s differences and more of our similarities we may discover how much we all have in common. --I’m getting off the point, sorry--- Your article has make me start thinking again! Instead of just going through life with the hard line difference between gay/straight, there may be a large blur like everything else in life! Thanks for presenting a soft approach to information. The in your face attitude on any issue can create a lot of resistance in people – worst of all, the real message can get lost in the shouting.

I’m not sure where life will take me, but now I have more to think about...

Chris Macintosh said about Handle Your Child's Temper Tantrum:

I wanted to tell the original author of this article and the subsequent contributors...Good Job! I happened accross this and the title caught my eye. I have a child who is high-functioning autistic. Tantrums were an everyday part of life with him. You managed to put into this article the things I learned over several years of trial and error. I just finished nursing school and I think even by a professional standard this is an excellent collection of practical advice.


I noticed this article has been accessed tens of thousands of times. Obviously I think this article will have a positive impact in many people's lives.


Anyway, thanks for taking the time to put such good advice where people who need it can find it. :)

24.115.198.184 said about Fix a Running Toilet:

ok so after 3 days of being intimate w/ my toilet--and searching the internet for solutions I found this article--i wish it woul dhave been on the first search page--but nontheless--only YOU gave me the idea to pinch the metal clips that hold the float to lower it of course i tried to slide it earlier and it would not go but when i pinched the metal clip and moved the float down low and behold--the toilet stop overflowing --i actually thought about calling a plumber but YOU made the right call--THANKS for taking the time to help and GOD bless!

Irene Francisco said about Fix a Running Toilet:

Irene Francisco on Forum:


Post subject: Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm a 79 year old recent widow. It's New Year's Day and I got up to discover my toilet wouldn't flush !!!!! Help, help, I have no idea how to cope with this other than use the plunger. So I said OK how do I deal with this. Wiki How, that's how and I just put in the word Toilet and pushed the button. Up comes the very information I need. I had already looked at the books on my shelf without any luck. My attempt with the plunger hadn't worked either. Two bottles of hot water and some detergent later my problem is solved and my deflated self esteem restored. You have made my year by showing me that I can live alone and survive. Something I've never had to do before has been attempted and successfully accomplished. Now I know where to come for the answers I will inevitably need as I continue on. This house I own was built in 1945 so I'm sure there will be other problems to solve but now I know the first place to look for answers. To whoever wrote that particular piece you have my heartfelt thanks. I hope this message will reach you.

75.69.247.76 said about Get a Job With a Criminal Record:

I want to thank you for this article, it has encouraged me, and given me some new things to consider. I just got released 2/8/06 after serving 16 yrs, so I am dealing with this bigtime. I lost my job because I wouldn't put up with harassment and as a result I am on unemployment because the hr at the company didn't think I should be listened too. It has now been since 10/20/2006 that I was employed and I was getting discouraged, but recently I have hooked up with vocational rehab, and I just wrote an excellent resume after attending a seminar on writing effective resumes. Hopefully things will change for the better soon.

Pete Gregory said about Build a Great Relationship With Your Auto Mechanic:

Fantastic "How To" page! I think I'll print it out and read it again on the lift at Keystone this afternoon. Your page was more helpful and concise than anything else I've seen in my search for how to do a 360... Thanks again for your time

I am a grandfather, and I have a teenage grandaughter. In our time and culture in my country Philippines, the approach to dating is very conservative or not even allowed especially in the rural areas. In this modern time, the trend is different. I copied your "How to Prepare of a Date" and mailed it to my daughter and her daughter each, and told them that this is the most sane and more acceptable preparation before the date. My daughter and her husband wrote back and said that they will follow your article as a rule. Thank you for this great tip.

Hello authors of 'How to Beat Homesickness'. I am 13 (turning 14)and unfortunatly I do get very homesick. I am from australia so i have just finished term two and have 2 weeks holidays. After that i have 1 week back and then i have camp. Now, i have never been very good with camps and can get very homesick. Even worse i get really scared at night that i will get homesick when im at camp. I even have it now. I really don't want to feel this bad and i do really hate camps. Your peice gave me inspiration to strive on and to try to beat this 'sickness'. I know that it is very common, and i was wondering, could it be hereditory? Because my mother used to get very homesick too. I really apreciate you wrighting this for people like me and mabey i can help others, and i shall try to keep a diary. Thx a bunch!

Thanks for this article. Having but recently read it, I found my iPod in the washing machine, water sloshing around behind its tiny screen. It was in a pocket I didn't check.

With plenty of help from a couple of iPod websites, we shut it off and levered it gingerly apart. We let it dry out for a good, long while, reassembled it, and it still works. Thanks for the direction and the inspiration not to give up.

I really want to thank you for the information you have on Google each day. I am learning so much. I am 63 and consider myself quite adept at most things, but reading your pages has given me so much more information and a better guide for living. The page on 'Impossible People' is brilliant and very helpful. I am encouraging my 23 year old son to read these pages. The information is so helpful to become wiser &

learn ways to be kinder and more confident in all aspects of our lives. It is brilliant to see the diversity of topics. I look forward to them every morning and can't thank you enough. Andrea Miller, West Vancouver BC Canada

Cipher_nemo said about Combat Ready (Tactically Prepare) Yourself With a Pistol:

I don't use any firearms, but I can really appreciate this detailed article. Thank you for spending the time to create such an in-depth guide! Although I have no need for a pistol, our freedom to bear arms and even discuss them should be protected. Kudos. :-)

Patrick Hoffman said about Read a Screw Thread Callout:

Thank you for this article. It was very helpful. I sort of a consider myself "handy". Then, thanks to this article, I realized that I didn't even know how to understand screw sizes. I'm just a little more knowledgable now.

Thanks again!

Hear that? I don't. No longer do I have to close two doors so I can avoid the noise of Chinese water torture occuring in my bathroom. All with a quick read and $3.50 worth of rubber from the local hardware store. Thank you so much for your brilliant guide.

72.207.197.100 said about Tell People You're Keeping Your Maiden Name:

I made this article suggestion because I've never intended on changing my name upon marriage, and though I have no concrete plans to marry just yet, my boyfriend and I are doing very well together and all the women in his family have changed their last names. I know I want to stick to my choice, no matter what family I "marry into" but I hate the idea of offending anyone, particularly would-be family members. Your answer made me feel much better about my right to make and be comfortable in my own decision, and it also made me feel better about practical ramifications and offered suggestions for telling larger groups of people that I hadn't even considered! Thanks again!


75.104.105.137 said about Use Than and Then:

I can't tell you how much I'd like to send this to so many bloggers out there! I got to the point where I was doubting my own usage of the two words, because I saw so many people, who I thought were quite educated, using them incorrectly. Thanks for the grammar lesson

74.139.179.141 said about Become a Mechanical Engineer:

Yes a thank you is in order for all! I am a 34 year old man that has always loved mechanics of all kinds. When I was little my mom bought me toy cars/motorcycles and the first thing I did was dismantle them, I was 5,My father got me interested in electronics when I was 7, and my Grand father got me interested in designing, inventing and diagnosing problems on full size cars. But sadley none of them pushed me towards college, and with no direction I went nowhere for a while. Then I decided I wanted to learn the automotive trade and went to a community college for automotive tech. finished a year and then life happened and I had to drop out. I felt like it was not what I wanted or it was just a small part. The How to that you have discussed here is like a chapter out of my life. I have worked alongside chemical engineers, been an automotive technician, welder, cnc machinist, heat treater, quality audited, Six Sigma Green belt, invented/reinvented, tinkered, designed and problem solved!! I always thirsted for knowledge that would make me better and open my mind to more ways of doing things, but I had no information an no direction as to what study would be for me... until I found this How To for becoming A Mechanical Engineer THANK YOU!! Now I just have to find a grant! LOL!!

your "how to fix a running toilet" guide helped me sooooooo much. Our toilet has been running for a long long time and my fiance and I would have arguments in the middle of the night about who has to get up to fix the noisy toilet. All it took was a stupid tightening of a screw!!! Thank you so much!!

Your article was very, very informative. We have many abandoned cemetaries in our area. Which used to be rural and now is turning upscale urban.

60.230.217.249 said about Tell People You're Keeping Your Maiden Name:

This article has been a great help, both in practical and emotional terms. As suggested here, I associate a strong part of my identity with my birth name and have significant qualifications in my birth name. It is helpful to know that there are valid reasons for the name/identity association that I feel. I socialise in fairly conservative circles (including my fiance), and your article highlighted some important considerations and approaches to take. Thanks so much. Anne.

72.225.215.91 said about Use a Voigtlander Vito B 35mm Camera:

Thanks so much. When my great grandfather died the only thing I took to remember him was his Voigtlander Vito B camera. I have had it with me for almost 20 years and now have begun to attempt to learn how to use it. Amazingly it seems to be in working order. Without even trying one day this "how to use a Voigtlander..." link popped up and I took it as a sign to make the time to use this gem. Your article got me through a couple rolls of film that I can't wait to develop. Now I want more info on how to use it. In particular, are there other lenses I can add to this for close up shots? Any info you have will be most appreciated. Thanks so much!!! Happy Camera Guy

71.107.218.225 said about Remove Gum from Clothes:

OK, so I've had this gum stuck on a really nice pair of chinos for the last two months trying to figure out the best way to attack the goo when I found your articles. I tried the ice, it was working but taking to long. Next I tried the liquid detergent, I did not like the results. Finally, I tried the hot vinegar. It worked great. I had an area the size of the palm of your hand and it removed the gume in less than 1 minute and I used a rag instead of a toothbrush. Thank you so much!
