7 things you can make yourself instead of buying
I found the text. The text that is supposed to accompany each picture (and the ads that are supposed to be down the right side of the page) are being thrown down to the bottom of the page in my browser. If you can't see the text with the pictures, scroll down the page below the "Add Your Comment " block.
I was able to see the article by going a couple lines above the pics to the article "trail" that starts with mnn.com and clicked on the title of the article. It showed up. I agree it's a pain to have to try to figure this out just to read something.
I'd like to read this, but the captions are disappearing as soon as the picture is changed. Any other way I can read it?
It's not something that shluod be mentioned before you get the job.But, if you get a job there and they do the type of work you will be needing why not mention it to them and see what they can do? It wouldn't hurt. If you get a more competitive bid elsewhere, it's your prerogative to go with that bid. In fact, you can take whatever bid you want. Just remember that if you do use the company you work for, that they have other customers don't nag.
Just one thing: you spend energy a lot burning your oven for only one piece of bread.
I also bake my bread at home, but I am aware that is full anti environment for the amount of energy you spend in an electric oven.
i bought a bread machine and now we have non preservative, fresh breads. hurrah for the green and saving money.
I am not sure they will take it, but you can try Salvation Army. If not, my only other suggestion is to get out the yellow pages and have it hauled away.
I just remembered from the hoarding show that they use big trucks to haul away trash. And Waste Management has a big heavy duty bag which is long and wide. You purchase the bag and then they come and pick it up. (I am not trying to imply you are a hoarder).
I don't know what state you live in but call a scrap yard, or recycling place in your area. they will pay you for it and some place will come and pick it up for 20 to 50 dollars out of what they will pay you.
yoiu dont need to hire someone to haul scrap away,legitmate recyclers will haul it away free,making there payment when they recycle it.just look for a legit party to do it.but have out of your immediate living space in case there also trying to case out other unwanted visits.
Does anyone know if scrap metal places take (or pay you) for old very heavy metal exercise machines?? I moved into a home and now own old exercise machines that were here already and most don't work anymore... any ideas?? The other problem I have is I do not own a car so I will need to hire someone to take them somewhere...
Call 1-800-got-junk. They'll pick it up for you and haul it. I've never heard of anyone paying you for the metal in old workout machines. I had to move recently and if you don't have time to sell on craigslist or ebay, I'd call the number I gave you.
I do know you are paid by the pound for scrap metal. I do not know the rate. I'm sorry to say it will probably cost you more to have your items taken over there if you have to pay a professional mover though. Maybe you could ask a friend or neighbor and pay back with some home made meals or something.
why not put it on freecycle? someone will come get it for you. if you don't know what freecycle is, google it with the name of your area/city/town and see if there is a group nearby. or put it on crags list for free pick up.
List the item on Craigslist.com for a small price or free and let someone else enjoy the machines, or fix them.
You can haul it yourself to the scrap yard and get $, or there are many people that will pick it up for FREE to get the $ themselves from the scrap yard. Don't pay anyone to pick it up. It's worth $ and there are guys that drive around all day and scrap for a living.
I see you asked this question a month ago. Are you aware of freecycle.org? I often post items I want to give away on my local freecycle groups.
Phyllis, you are right, it's about the fuel used to bake bread too. That's why Grandma always told me "never bake an orphan". In other words, never put just one thng in the oven, a single loaf of bread or batch of rolls. I bake bread when I'm making baked beans or a pot roast, or a pan of brownies, use the heat to my best advantage.
It's called an agrarian society. Personally I would prefer to revert to this structure and work purely for my family's gain than work outside the home to make someone else wealthier. In case you're wondering, that's called Capitalism. It's the foundation for all those wonderful tools and superfluous items you mentioned.
My wife has made ALL of our bread for about 7 years now. It has become a habit for her. Once you learn it, you will love it if you like to spend time in the kitchen and bake. Sure, our refrigerator is full of all sorts of different sour doigh cultures, but man is it worth it. You can start with a no-knead recipe like someone else mentioned on here, but you'll tire of that pretty quickly. Use a stand mixer with a dough hook and make it the right way.
I hate to be a party pooper, but there's a reason the corner bakery was invented. Before that, there was the community oven. It's all about the energy used to bake the bread. Back when (and, still, in places where) you had to gather your fuel and wait for an oven to heat up, it was a lot of trouble for individuals, especially for single loaves. So, you SHARED. Now, how about baking parties for the holidays--that would save at least some energy and be fun, too.
I would like mother nature network to to teach us how to prepare or make these seven items most,and list out the things we need to prepare the respective items ,most especially bread.
Justina, check out the links under each slide on information about how to make these items yourself. Good luck!
Try it, google this and it will change the way you make or think of making bread. It's a no knead recipe and the bread is delish.
I;ve heard of this book before, I think I printed out a recipe a long time ago. I should see if I can find it.
I feel sure Mr. Hawking would love to be physically capable of baking bread and lots of other "mundane" tasks. And if he were, it's just possible the meditative act of doing so might spur even more creative thinking on his part!
Please note that when it comes to bread, you "knead" it not "kneed" it. (unless you are doing it with your knees)
You mean all these years I wasn't supposed to be using my knees? ARRRRRGH! No wonder my bread has been blue all these years, too many denim stains...
If you have time to surf the web and comment on how people don't have time to make bread, then you have time to make bread. Get a bread machine and you can surf the web while it kneads it for you. Really.
