A bit of this and a bit of that from Donna’s did you know diary
Here’s what I learned for this month.
• If you find that your kitchen is a bit too cold for you, then turn on your oven on low, leave the door open, and voila! Your kitchen will soon start to be a bit warmer.
• What is almost a safe temperature to bake at?
Why, 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
• And this is for the traveler who is concerned about amount of luggage on an airplane.
You can use a carry on to pack your clothes and make things smaller by using travel cubes.
And what are travel cubes?
They have zippers on three sides of the cube.
You can sort your stuff into these three compartments and when done you simply squeeze the air out of the cube.
It is like a vac pack and presto!
Everything is compacted in to very flat cubes.
• 2 very useful signs that you can use when in a restaurant and they are known as international signs.
The first is when you wish to request your bill.
Just put your palm up and then use your finger to pretend that you are writing.
The second is when you wish to request separate bills.
Just put up 2 fingers.
• When hanging a chandelier over your dining room table, make sure to hang it at about 30 inches above your table.
• If you live in a condo then take note of this tip.
Heat rises from the ground up and not the other way.
That is, it does not descend from the top.
• What is the value of having eye lashes?
Well, they protect your eyes from dust particles that may be floating in the air.
• About smiling versus frowning?
When you smile you use fewer muscles than when you frown.
