    14 Apr 2014 | 5:37 am
    My dog bit the mailman. One of the many ramifications of this is I had to remove the mailbox from my front door area and put it by the curb. Not a particularly nice mailbox to begin with, tackling it to a tree in my front yard was an easy solution, but it did nothing for the curb appeal of my house. Considering that the mailman is never coming back to my front door, it’s finally time to replace my temporary fix with a new and attractive curbside mailbox. And if you know anything about me, you know I’m making...

If you want to calculate the volume of a triangular prism, all you have to do is find the area of one of the triangular bases and multiply it by the height of the shape. EditSteps Identify the base and height of one of the triangular bases. The triangular bases of the triangular prism will have the same dimensions, so it doesn't matter which triangle you use.

However, if you clean up the mold but don’t solve the moisture problem, it will come back. Since mold is strictly related to moisture, making sure all the water damaged areas are cleaned and dried within 24 hours is the key to prevent mold from growing. Furthermore, be sure to wipe away excess water on your sink as well as to open windows in a bathroom after showering. If you don’t have windows in your bathroom, make…

The sideboard is filled to the brim with serving dishes and seasonal accessories and there is no room to put the DVD player so that sits on an old side table. And then there's the large blank wall. I could put art there but I wondered if it might be too distracting when you're watching TV? But I've…

    If you're not interested in kid's birthday parties, then you might want to turn away from this post. This is probably the most epic birthday party I've thrown so I'm just going to fill it with a gazillion photos. You've been warned!We celebrated Chloe's 5th birthday on the weekend and it was a blast! Chloe has been asking for a Disney Frozen birthday party ever since she saw the movie. Five is a such a fun age... I love that Chloe is old enough to come up with ideas for her party and help me with the decorations and party food. The way I see it, there's only a limited number of years she'll…

    Jen @ RamblingRenovators
    10 Apr 2014 | 4:30 am
    Even though I have a birthday party to enjoy this weekend, I'm already looking forward to the next celebration. Easter Sunday dinner is one of my favourite occasions. You have the joy of dining with family or friends but without the pressures the holidays usually bring. Maybe it's because Easter happens in the springtime, with its fresh colours, sunshine, and the laid-back vibe that implies. But laid-back doesn't mean any less special. In case you're up for a stress-free celebration, I wanted to share some ideas for throwing an Easter celebration that is easy, welcoming, and delicious.Every…

    It's about to get cold up in here. We're having a Disney Frozen themed birthday party this weekend so I'm putting the last few party projects together. If you've been reading here a while, you'll know that I LOVE planning parties and this has been one of the most fun parties to plan ever. I loved the movie and the colours and characters are just fun to work with. In case you're planning a Frozen party, I thought I'd share some ideas:Frozen Pinata: One day, Chloe said to me "Mommy, you know what I want for my party? A Frozen pinata.

    Here’s the thing about Spring in Michigan. Sunday, I spent almost the entire day working outside, and do you know how many sleeves I was wearing?  None. That’s right. Working outside…. sleeveless. And I’m not saying I walked outside, threw my sleeveless arms into the air, and did a little happy dance because it was a glorious seventy-degrees… but I’m not saying I didn’t either. The beauty of living in the middle of nowhere is that no one will ever know. That was Sunday. And then– not even 36 hours later– I woke up Tuesday morning, looked…

    One of the things I love most about my life is that I’m pretty sure the Universe is constantly messing with me. This, I suspect, is the trade-off for having a wicked sense of humor… whoever is in charge up there thinks it’s cool to play jokes on you. Daily. Take this, for example… If you’re having trouble figuring out exactly what the joke is, please look closely at the light fixture. Really, little black bird?

    It only took two years of living on the farm for me to recognize that there’s a very fine line between holy-effing-freezing and holy-shit-my-garden-should-have-been-planted-already. As far as I can tell, this magical period of time lasts approximately 0.0078 seconds and falls sometime between March and June. And you better be on your toes, because if you blink, you might miss it. Last year I had grand plans for a fenced in garden full of raised beds, stone walkways, and a big chicken coop in the middle. And, um… Kinda? Okay, maybe I spent too much time planning and not enough time…

    For many months now, my thoughts have been fixated on one thing: Snow. Specifically, when the hell it will finally melt so I don’t have to spend five hours plowing the driveway every time I want to leave the house. Using a tractor to plow the driveway is only fun the first time, and even then only after a few beers and/or a fever-induced delirium. (There might have been both involved, the first time I attempted it.) The thing is, I like winter. I like the changing of the seasons. Up until about January, I would still get excited when I’d wake up in the morning to find a fresh…

  • Gas Can Replacement Spout

    The Handyguys
    28 Mar 2014 | 7:00 am
    The Handyguys found a gas can replacement spout that actually works! Most gas cans come with terrible spouts. This is often because of the nanny state mandates such as C.A.R.B. (California Air Resources Board). The idea is we improve air quality by having a spout on your gas can that automatically closes. The government doesn’t think we will put the cap on when not in use and that any evaporation is bad. To meet these nanny state regulations manufacturers have tried several different types of gizmos to close the lid for us. The consequence is spouts that are hard to use, spill gas,…

    Is your house water pressure too high or too low? It may be simple to adjust it. Watch this video by Handyguy Paul on how to adjust your house water pressure. When your house water pressure is too high it can cause issues with water heater expansion tanks, appliances, toilets and faucets. Water pressure that is too high can lead to leaks. If the water pressure is too low it can take a long time to do laundry or dishes and be unpleasant to shower. The ideal water pressure for a home is between 55 and 65 pounds per inch (PSI). Use a simple gauge to test your pressure and adjust it yourself by…

  • Gerber Crucial Review Update

    6 Apr 2014 | 2:12 pm
    I bought the Gerber Crucial for myself about two years ago. At the time, I was searching for a multi-tool that was fairly compact and had the ability to deploy most, if not all, of the tools without fully opening the tool. My intent was to EDC (every-day carry) it. On paper, the Crucial fit my needs; however, I only found myself carrying it on and off.Here is a link to my original review from about 20 months ago. I actually thought quite highly of the tool at the time. So, why didn't I regularly use it for EDC? It's hard to say. A while after I bought the Crucial, I ended up getting a…

  • Sipik SK68 LED Flashlight Mod

    27 Feb 2013 | 9:53 pm
    I've been interested in LED flashlights for a while now. It was about a year and a half ago that I got my first high-power LED flashlight, meaning, it doesn't use multiple 5mm LEDs like the previous lights I've featured here on my blog (see my LED flashlight roundup for those). These newer lights are much more powerful and use a single LED of a different variety.The Sipik SK68 is widely regarded as a budget light. In fact, you can get it for less than $10; however, that doesn't mean that it's poor quality. I'd say it's one of the best "bang for your buck" lights out there right now. I…
  • Old Stanley No. H1249 Hand Plane

    25 Feb 2013 | 9:42 pm
    The last time I visited home, I mentioned to my dad how I had recently helped some friends install trim for a couple of windows. I told him the job would have been a lot easier if I had a hand plane to make fine-tuned adjustments to the fit of the trim. With that, he jumped up and ran out to the garage to give me this old plane he no longer had a use for.I must say, it doesn't look like much now. It's dirty, a little rusted, and generally tarnished all over; however, looks can be deceiving as it's basically in great shape. Aside from a little cleaning, all it needs to be brought…

    Chris Hoffman
    17 Apr 2014 | 3:40 am
    If a Windows system is badly infected with malware, running an antivirus from inside Windows often won’t help. You can more easily find and purge malware by scanning from outside Windows. Malware can hide itself on an infected system, avoiding detection. Other malware may attempt to battle the antivirus software, preventing it from properly installing or scanning. This is why it’s important to catch malware before it infects you.

The flea market vendor claims to be a medical assistant and explained that the sell of human skulls is legal if they're used for medical use only. He bought the one above for $200 from his teacher and is attempting to sell it for more (likely $600ish) on eBay.The seller, in his cargo cut-off army camouflage pants, wife-beater, tats and thick south-eastern accent doesn't look anything like the picture of a medical assistant but…

In his fixer-upper home, he was in the process of making the bathroom beautiful – but an ugly corner unit seemed determined to spoil those plans.

    Mathieu Stephan

    [Hans] wanted to see the frequency response of a bandpass filter but didn’t have a lot of test equipment. Using an RTL-SDR dongle, some software and a quickly made noise generator, he still managed to get a rough idea of the filter’s characteristics. How did he do it? He ‘simply’ measured his noise generator frequency characteristics with and without the bandpass filter connected to its output and then subtracted one curve with the other. As you can see in the diagram above, the noise generator is based around a zener diode operating at the reverse breakdown…

Here are a couple completely different DIY options: [Mark] made a spool holder that can accept 2 different width spools. This design uses skate bearings to support the spool on two points at each end. There are 3 sets of bearing blocks to accommodate the 2 different width spools.

    7 Apr 2014 | 7:04 am
    Here are some water treatment methods, depending on your area and type of water: • In areas with naturally acidic water (such as surface rainfall in upland mountains of igneous rocks), the water can sometimes actually dissolve the lead from any lead pipes that carry it. Plumbo-solvency (the addition of small quantities of phosphate ion that increases the pH level) can help by creating insoluble lead salts on the inner surfaces of the pipes.• Some groundwater sources contain radioactive radium. The area north of the Illinois River in Illinois is one example. Radium can be removed by ion…

    The following processes are commonly used, either individually or in combination, for municipal drinking water treatment:• Pre-chlorination. Chlorine is added to the water as it enters the plant, killing microorganisms such as bacteria, protozoa, and viruses, and preventing the growth of algae during the upcoming processes.• Aeration. Bringing air into contact with water for the purpose of exchanging certain components is called aeration. Oxygenation is one of the purposes of aeration. Others are removal of volatile organic substances, hydrogen sulfide, and ammonia. Used along with…

  • Everything is better under the sun – 5 Awesome outdoor home theaters

    Having a home theater inside is so two years ago. The new thing is being able to watch the game or your favorite movie in your backyard. It should be noted; we blame global warming for this new trend. Here are 5 outdoor home theaters any neighbor would be envious of: 1. Scottsdale, AZ 47” Television on a Nexus 21 L-40s TV Lift.

  • Want to Make TV Time Better in 2014?

    2 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    Watching TV can be fun family time, a chance to kick back and take a load off on the weekend, a relaxing time after a hard day, or a way to keep up with current events. However, it can also be a massive timewaster; half of all Americans say they watch far too much, and the average American now watches a whopping 34+ hours per week of television! That’s not counting leaving the TV on all the time just for background noise and getting sucked in for 5 minutes here and 10 minutes there. How can you make your TV time better? Experts say scheduling is the answer – requiring that children be…

    Put a TV in your Lobby Many places wisely place TVs in waiting rooms or high traffic areas, and while it is great for guests and clients, the receptionist who has to listen to it even when no-one is present may not appreciate the gesture. A TV lift is a nice change; when guests actually arrive, a press of a button can bring the set out as a pleasant surprise for a waiting client. Add a TV lift to your Executive Desk A TV lift can be perfect for over the desk scenarios, especially to lift and lower your computer monitor when working, conversing with clients, or leaving for the day.

    Our family absolutely loves Caesar anything (this slaw is fabulous, and we eat this classic dressing often), so I was pretty sure that combining chicken, lettuce, parmesan and Caesar dressing was going to go over well around here. Yeah, they're already asking me when we can have these again. Even better than that, this meal comes together quickly whether I use my Spiced Whole Slow Cooked Chicken or a rotisserie chicken from Costco (seriously yummy and inexpensive - my sister turned us on to these a few months ago and wow, we love them!) and they can be served with warmed chicken or cold…

Take a look at the latest GoT posters, see a (not really) shocking surprise in the Iron Throne, and check out who the cast things should be the rightful heir of the throne. New Game of Thrones Posters “Winter is coming” has been a foreboding phrase recognized all over the world by fans of Game of Thrones.

  • A History of Sherlock Holmes Through Movie Posters

    Samantha Paternoster
    25 Mar 2014 | 7:02 am
    Sherlock Holmes, the literary master of disguise, has changed faces dozens of times since his original appearance in 1887. Most recognize him as Robert Downey Jr or Benedict Cumberbatch, two of his latest facades. But where did he start? And how did he end up on BBC? Over a century of disguises can be tracked through movie posters. In total, there have been an estimated 100 known Sherlock Holmes movies made since 1900. However, since 1930 over 20 Sherlock Holmes films have been produced. The majority were made in the early 1900′s. Some were modeled after the original stories by Sir…
  • Fictional Movie Posters By Peter Stults – Modern Movies Gone Vintage

    What if your favorite modern day movie was actually a remake of an older film? With so many films being re-invented, it’s hard to keep track of which is original, and which is from another century. Artist Peter Stults had us doing double takes and extensive research with his poster recreations of some of our favorite original films. Imagine if your favorite modern day movies – Frozen, The Expendables, The Hunger Games – were filmed 50 years ago. What would the movie posters look like? Stults answers your questions with visual example. Titled “Movies From Another Universe”,…
  • Colorful Frames – Why They’re Your Interior Design Savior

    Samantha Paternoster
    12 Feb 2014 | 3:10 am
    One of the most important aspects of choosing a frame is choosing the color and style that best suits your poster or print, as well as your personal style. A black or silver frame will always look good and match any color scheme. A colorful frame, however, has the power to brighten any room as well as your mood. Studies have shown that the colors we see and surround ourselves with have the ability to alter our moods. When choosing what color frames you want, focus on how you want each room or your home to feel. Inspire high energy and passion with a red frame. Looking forward to coming home…

    Spring is almost here. I’m so glad because there was a lot of winter time for the past few months. I mean, just look at our backyard here.Just kidding, we don’t have teepees in our backyard. Earlier this year, Cy and I were invited out by our friend Richard to go ice fishing on Lake Simoe. Our first time! I felt extra Canadian that day.Minet’s Point’s ice fishing was your basic, no frills experience. You get your teepee with a metal heater, 3-legged, foldable chair, and a stick wound up with string and hook. The bait was an extra $10. Even with the basics, we…

Cy carefully knocked a few things down: the corner closet and a wall. Add a glass wall, new baseboard trims, paint, custom light fixture, accessories and furniture and we had a modern/vintage office.Here are the pieces that make up the office: Filigree shelving and fake plants that I don’t have to water from my favourite and affordable decor retailer, HomeSense.

  • When in Lisbon – Beware of Snails and Other Tips

    Cy and I waited for the “best” time to go on our honeymoon. It just so happened to be nearly 2 years after we got married, bought a house, finished some renovations…and procrastinated enough. We left for Lisbon right after I quit my last job! In one carry-on bag, we packed lightly and stored tons of iPhone notes on specific restaurants and destinations from friends and Anthony Bourdain.Our flight took us through Amsterdam to Lisbon. Once we arrived, the cheapest way into the city was via subway. Eventually, we emerged from Biaxa Chiado station – our first views were of…

    The power of the recent ice storm left most of the GTA in the dark. And, Cy and I even laughed about freezing rain in the forecast – ha, it’s nothing! We are from Vancouver, no problem. But the city was encased in ice and there were a lot of problems: No lights, no heat, no Internet (!), no more Christmas party and one fallen tree in our backyard. It was seriously destructive and beautiful at the same time. For one week, we didn’t have power and it became unbearable to live in the house. We tried for 2 nights, but it felt like we were camping…indoors. How can I…

So, imagine if dessert was actually good for you! No, really it can be. I was asked by Sandy (@savvari) to take part in a recipe post featuring a USA-grown brown rice (“unrefined” kind of white rice). It turns out that brown rice is a heck a lot better for you than white rice.

  • 1 Minute Bread Machine Recipe

    The moment we got our first bread machine was the moment my life changed forever. Bread machines perform 21st century alchemy. Just stick about 50 cents worth of ingredients into it, go away for a few hours, and BOOM! A 5 dollar loaf of hot fresh bread is waiting for you. Thanks Taran from Dollar Eater for finding the per-loaf cost for us. However! Bread machines have one major flaw – few people know how to use them to make adequate bread. Getting our first bread machine to make good bread was an exercise in frustration and dismay. For months we tried recipe after recipe, always ending…
  • Bucket Handle Repair

    trevor
    25 Mar 2014 | 6:43 am
    We’ve spent very little time talking so far about one of the most important parts of the 5 gallon bucket – its handle. I know from my experience that the handle is of critical importance, because I’ve broken them before. You don’t realise how much you rely on that handle until it’s suddenly unusable. Now for an all-plastic handle, really the only thing that you can do is replace it. You can see that the taping job we tried on this one did not hold. My bucket supplier is a soap retailer who breaks so many handles that he orders them in by the box. That’s why…
  • Paint Can Nail Organizers

    Every seasoned homeowner has stacks of half full paint cans lying around. If you do ever end up emptying a few of these, you can repurpose them into great hardware organizers. Old paint buckets are the perfect size for storing the sort of small hardware you buy by the handful – nails, screws, wire couplers, even hinges. Just watch out for pointy ends when you jam your hands in there. Every can gets neatly labeled with thick painter’s tape so we know at a glance what’s where. The convenient carrying handle means you can cart several around at once. And you can fit 2 perfectly…
  • Hand Cart

    A full 5 gallon bucket weighs 40 pounds. Sometimes that’s too much to carry on foot. Fortunately, there’s a bucket invention for every problem you can think of. This is the 5 gallon bucket hand cart. It turns any 5 gallon bucket into a mobile cargo hauler with a convenient tow bar. Its large wheels make it more stable than the bucket dolly. And it tackles stairs without a problem. I’m going to compare this sexy bucket cart with our rust-bucket of a wheelbarrow. I had to use this thing to haul dirt around growing up. The wheel scraped along the bottom of the barrow, and…
