Did You Know – 06/01/2015

1. A Hotel Secret on putting pillow cases on pillows – The housekeepers throw a solid karate chop right down the middle of the pillow and then shove it in, folded like a bun. This method is preferred to the civilian method of tucking it under your chin and pulling up the pillowcase like a pair of pants because these ladies have no interest in letting 50 pillows a day come into contact with their faces.

4. fire usually moves faster uphill than downhill – This is because heat rises; if a fire is going uphill the flame from the top of one tree would burn the bottom of the tree above it, causing that tree to burn and continue to the next tree. They also move faster uphill because fires need oxygen, fuel, and heat to burn. If you hold a match and its is burning the correct way it will burn slowly down to your fingers. If you turn that match upside down it burns faster and will burn your fingers.

Tree hugging is forbidden in china – After the mass tree hugging outside of Zhongnanhai a few years ago, the Party concluded that the tree huggers were a dangerous cult and a threat to national unity. Known tree huggers were rounded up and forced to sign pledges that they would never again hug a tree. Those who resisted were sent to reeducation through labor camps and the most recalcitrant disappeared into the Chinese prison system.

Family Fingerprint Ornament

This is a great, easy idea. Make a nice gift or tree ornament, wall hanging, paperweight. You could do it with the imprint of a baby’s foot or hand, that would be cute.

The instructions don’t say but I assume you press the dough consistency to what ever shape you would like then press your fingerprints into it. Don’t forget to make the thread hook.

Shade itBeing in Texas any saving on air-conditioning is a plus. 

Save as much as 10% on air-conditioning costs by putting an awning or planting a shade tree over the AC condenser or window unit. 

Be sure not to surround the units too closely because it could restrict the air flow and increase your costs not decrease them
