Don't throw out that extra turkey. It's great for sandwiches, or slivered and tossed in a salad, or in a casserole. Mix up your left-over dressing with Mexican spices and stir in corn chips, and you'll eat like it's Spring Break all weekend long!



Use stakes to identify where your spring bulbs are located. In late winter, when the snow begins to fade, you can start your spring bed preparation without disturbing your awaiting blooms.


As you do your fall pruning, pay attention to the time of the month. If the moon is waxing (growing larger each night), the Almanac says pruning will encourage new plant growth. A waning moon (growing smaller each night) encourages less new growth. Why? Traditional advice suggests the waning moon pulls more fluids out of the branches, preventing rapid regrowth.


Enjoy your turkey! Remember, some people don't care for the flavorful bird. Plan to have backup choices available, such as ham or even vegetarian options. Your meal will be a resounding success, and everyone will leave the table stuffed!


Use one cup of water, a bit of grated lemon peel, a teaspoon of lemon juice, and some cloves. Heat in the microwave just unil it boils. Let the mixture cool and wipe down the interior of the microwave. You'll smell the difference each time you open the door.
