LIGHTSIDE A young couple invited an elderly pastor for dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having for dinner. Goat the boy replied. Goat? asked the man of the cloth. are you sure about that? yes replied the boy. I heard Dad say to Mom, Today is a good day to have the old goat for dinner.
Reminds me of when my granddaughter was getting a award at her school, and she invited my wife and me to attend. As we walked into the hall we noticed our granddaughter hit a boy sitting besides her.
After the award we met our granddaughter in the hall. I asked her why she hit the kid. She replied, when you and grandma came into the hall the kid turned to me and said, look at those two dinosaurs.
I mentioned to my doctor, I just cant stop my hands from shaking. He asked, Do you drink a lot?. My reply was, No I spill most of it.
TIPS FOR HOME SAFETY
Banned since 1973, lead-based paint may still be found on childrens toys, furniture, particularly on old articles. If not sure strip and repaint any questionable articles.
Glazed earthenware bowls, plates, mugs, could also be potential source of lead poisoning. Acidic foods, such as citrus juices, soft drinks, and pickled foods, can dissolve the lead in glaze.
Keep poisons locked away or out of reach. Children are not discouraged by bad taste. Keep your local Poison Control Centres phone number near the phone in case emergency. Buy medicines and household products with child-resistant packaging.
Remember some plants are also poisonous and should be kept out of reach from childrens and pets.
Never leave a child alone near a body of water, even a puddle. Empty wading pools, pails of water that are not being used. When on a boat or wharf always put life jackets on children.
CLEANING SPOT REMOVALS:
HOW TO REMOVE STAIN FROM CLOTH. Tartaric acid, or salt of lemons, will quickly remove stains from white muslin or linen. Put less then half a teaspoonful of salt or acid into a teaspoonful of water; wet the stain with it, and lay it in the sun for an hour; wet it once or twice with cold water during the time; if this does not quite remove it, repeat the acid water, and lay it in the sun.
HOW TO REMOVE WINE FROM ARTICLES: Salt is the best ingredient to be found in the kitchen to remove or the like, from tablecloths or carpets. Pour on the discoloured spot of wine stain to thoroughly cover and imbibe all the liquor, then repeat if necessary, after brushing off all the salt first saturated. In this manner the cloth or carpet will be restored to its new condition.
STAINLESS STEEL AND CHROME: Good for pots, sinks, and stove tops. Rub the area to be cleaned with a damp cloth and baking soda. Baking soda is an excellent general cleaner for removing many stubborn stains, including tea stains, and can be safely used on stainless steel, chrome, ceramic.
HOW TO CLEAN WALLPAPER; Make of equal parts of cornstarch and soft water a smooth paste; rub it on the spots; when it is dry, brush it off with a stiff brush. You will never see where the spots were.
Milk Punch 2 ½ oz. Rum 1 teaspoon Sugar Milk Combine the rum, sugar with ice: Shake well. Strain: add ice and fill with milk. (brandy or whiskey can be used instead of rum).
Montreal Gin Sour.
2 oz. Gin.
2 teaspoon Lemon juice.
1 teaspoon Lemon juice.
1 teaspoon Sugar syrup.
1 egg white.
Combine with ice. Shake. Strain and add ice.
8 oz. Sweet cider.
4 oz. Orange juice.
1 teaspoon Applesauce.
A few drops of lemon juice.
Combine in blender at a high speed or until thick. Store in the freezer until thick enough to eat with a spoon. Best served in tall glasses.
If you are having a party, provide food with drinks. Offer non-alcoholic substitutes such as fruit, soft drinks. 2 drinks taken within an hour by a person 100 pounds produces a 075 reading. One drink is equal to about 1.5 oz. of whisky or 2 bottles of beer. The rate of elimination for each hour after drinking has stopped is 015. A 200-pound person, after 1 drink produces a reading of .019, so you can see there is a big difference due to weight.
As a host it is your duty to make sure no one leaves your party impaired. Have some one drive them home.
