Daily Calendar for Thursday, September 15, 2022

Question of the Day

We have a bread box that is lined with wood. How can I get the smell of the wood out of the box?
Put a few drops of vanilla extract in a cup of water and mix. Apply this mixture to the interior by rubbing hard with a rag.

Advice of the Day

Wisdom is oftimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar.

Home Hint of the Day

Furnaces should be checked and cleaned each year by a professional. Improved efficiency will lead to fuel savings that will more than cover the cleaning cost.

Word of the Day

The nearly straight-line configuration that occurs twice a month, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction (on the same side of Earth at the new Moon) and when they are in opposition (on opposite sides of Earth at the full Moon). In both cases, the gravitational effects of the Sun and the Moon reinforce each other, and tidal range is increased.

Puzzle of the Day

Emblem of majesty am I, which β€œshows force of temporal power,” but twist me about and I become a thing which makes even monarchs cower.(What word fits the first clue, but when rearranged, fits the second?)
