Hi All,

A reader writes in....I've been using aluminum foil for more 
years. Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain. Llike 
when you are in the middle of doing something and you try to 
pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box.Then you 
have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn 
roll always comes out at the wrong time. Well, I would like 
to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an 
empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and 
looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, 
"Press here to lock end". Right there on the end of the box 
is a tab to lock the roll in place.
How long has this little locking tab been there? I then 
looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. 
I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! 

I'm sharing this with my friends that did not know this. I 
hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this.


LOL...I know! I just recently found this out as well. Thanks 
for sharing!

Do you remember Bozo The Clown?

If you're like me you grew up watching Bozo The Clown. There
were many different Bozo's around the country. Here in Chicago
it was Bob Bell. Even Willard Scott got his start being Bozo.

But there was one Bozo who started it all and to most people
he IS the one and only Bozo. That's Larry Harmon. 

On July 3, 2008 we lost Larry. Luckily his work and the magic
that is Bozo will live on forever. Check out this video clip
of Bozo. 

You can also buy the DVD at a discounted price. Check it out 
by visiting:

Ladies this ones for you...No more mascara clumps! Give your 
wand a glance before sweeping on your mascara: if it looks 
cakey, apply a little Vaseline over the bristles, then wipe
with a paper towel--the excess mascara will glide right off, 
giving you a clean want -- and great looking lashes!

Handy Hint #2

Thinking about buying a new car? Four-door cars generally 
have lower insurance rates than two-door cars. Check the 
insurance rate on your prospective car before buying.
