Uses For Olive Oil
1. Shave. Olive oil can provide a closer shave when used in place of shaving
2. Shine stainless steel. Many cleaning standbys, such as ammonia, can dull
and even corrode chrome and stainless steel. Olive oil, however, is a safe
effective shining agent.
3. Remove eye makeup. Dab a little olive oil under the eyes and rinse off
a washcloth.
4. Prevent wax from sticking to a candle holder. Rub a thin coat of olive
on the base of the holder before inserting a candle. Dripped wax should peel
away easily.
5. Care for your pet. Add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon olive oil to your cat’s food
help prevent hair balls.
6. Moisturize cuticles. Apply a small amount of olive oil to the nail beds.
7. Treat dry skin. Rub a thin layer of olive oil over the skin after a
or a waxing.
8. Unstick a zipper. Using a Q-tip, apply a drop of olive oil to lubricate
teeth. (Avoid touching the fabric.) The zipper should move up and down
9. Dust wooden furniture. Apply a bit of olive oil to a cloth and wipe.
10. Silence squeaky doors. Lubricate hinges by applying a small dab of olive
oil to a cloth, then wiping the top of the hinges so that the oil runs down
the sides.

The Bronte sailing club

It is always so very nice when I get to talk about a club that has gone out
of its way to ensure that blind persons are able to experience something out
of the ordinary and in this case, the joys of sailing. A few months ago, I
did just that and boy did I ever have a wonderful time. The joys of sailing
were so real and exciting to me and now that I have precious little vision,
I have to depend almost totally on the guidance of my instructors.

It was five days of heavenly bliss. I along with 30 or so blind friends was
treated to the rudiments of sailing. There were about 10 boats give or take
a few and about three times the number of crew members and volunteers. We
had morning and evening sessions and we sailed in calm as well as in semi
choppy waters.

I learned how to steer a boat. I learned how to tack, winch, and turn the
boat and I learned how to determine the direction of the winds. I sailed in
excellent boats and on the last day we participated in three races. Believe
it or not, I and my team won the overall competition in our boat called

I learned so much and I felt and experienced even more. I was shown so much
kindness by total strangers and I saw where club members were so willing to
teach and share. I would personally like to thank Irene Bantin, all of the
volunteers, all of the crews that I sailed with, but most of all my winning
crew! Colin, Mark, Brian, Joan, and Peter. It was an experience that I
would never forget.
