1. Canon and Epson Photo Scanner Review
I began with the idea that the difference between Canon and Epson photo scanners would be no more significant than the old song made famous by Louis Armstrong, with its line "You like tomato and I like tomahto..."
And I still held that opinion by the time I finished doing research at Amazon, wit...

Computers & Electronics - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:24:19
If you are planning to convert slides to a digital format, you can do the conversion in at least four different ways. The best results come from using a good slide scanner.

Arts & Design - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:17:18
We bought an Epson Perfection v300 Photo Scanner in order to digitize the old slides and photos my husband and I have saved. We got it mainly as a slide scanner but it is also the best photo scanner we have had, better than any of the all-in-one printer-scanner-copier...

Sports & Recreation - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:13:21
Neither my husband Kelly Hart nor I had any idea that earthbag building would take off worldwide when we built our earthbag house in the late 1990s. I'll show photos of what we did further on, but it's only fair to say that Kelly did most of it. I did help. We also had a "teenage slave" as we cal...

12. Enamel Cast Iron Cookware
Healthy Living - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 05:44:48
Enamel cast iron cookware is really good to cook with because it is relatively heavy and the heat coming up from the stovetop diffuses evenly. It's much less likely to burn than conventional pots and pans. It can go in the oven for baking... it's so attractive that you can serve from it at the ta...
13. 70 is the New 70
Food & Cooking - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:15:23
I'm seventy. Yep, somehow it happened. And the theme of my birthday and of my year is "Seventy is the new seventy." What I mean is that how I and my contemporaries will do our seventies is new. We are making it up as we go along. And remember, we are the people who made up the 1960s!
From what I...

Home & Garden - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:14:23

Healthy Living - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:14:38

Books, Poetry & Writing - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:17:16
A portable swamp cooler is an economical and eco-friendly way to cool your bedroom, home office, living room, or other space--and you can move it from room to room if you wish. The evaporative cooling process that it uses works best in a dry climate, like the American west.
Here, I'll be explain...
21. Llamas and Llama Training
Home & Garden - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:14:39
Llamas are intelligent animals who make wonderful hiking companions (they carry the load) and all-around friends. I call them "friends" because they have such a zest for life, and so much curiosity about what is going on around them, that they are a delight to be with. They don't typically get at...

23. Cooking with Electric Skillets and Woks
Squidoo Community - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:18:14
Why would you want to cook in an electric skillet or, for that matter, an electric wok? Because both of them provide you with counter-top convenience, and a wok can cook food very quickly in the classic stir-fry manner so often used in Chinese and other cuisine.
Electric skillets and woks are am...

His older sister Alexandra and her husband Roland were...
27. Organic Freeze Dried Food
Books, Poetry & Writing - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:23:33
That's what I would like in an ideal world... that I could have a store of freeze-dried foods for camping trips and emergencies, and that much of it would be organically grown.

Pets & Animals - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:14:12

Its time of splendor was from about 800 AD until it was a...

Squidoo Community - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:14:38
Lola, our six-year-old Rottweiler, carries her blue toy with her everywhere. She may drop it anywhere in the house but pretty soon she comes and gets it again. First thing in the morning, when we open the bedroom door, she prances in with it clenched in her large jaws. Some days she will let me p...
34. SentenceShaper, Useful Software for People with Aphasia
Pets & Animals - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 01:15:35
SentenceShaper (also written Sentence Shaper) is based on a very simple fact: people with aphasia may still know a lot about their language but their language processing is slowed way down. It takes these individuals longer to think of words, and words often vanish from memory before they can be...
