Question of the Day

Can I get a chocolate drink stain out of a white T-shirt?
You can try scrubbing the area with a little ammonia, then washing the shirt as you normally would.

Advice of the Day

Save the water from cooking pasta. Let it cool, then use it to water houseplants.

Home Hint of the Day

To repair small defects such as old nail holes in the surface of a wall, place some spackling compound on a finger and force the filler into the hole. The spackling compound will harden, so you can paint over it.

Stinkpot
An earthen jar charged with powder, grenades, and other materials of an offensive and suffocating smell, — sometimes used in boarding an enemy’s vessel.

Puzzle of the Day

Why was the giant Goliath very much astonished when David hit him with a stone?
