Hi all GMail users, just an FYI, there seems to be a problem with the service that TABI uses (freelists.com), and google mail, such that if you post to TABI you will not see a copy of your own post. If I hear of any solution to this problem I'll let the list know. for now, you can just count on your message getting through; FreeLists is quite reliable. thanks.

Looking for Practical tips for newsletter Hi everyone, It is almost time for the Lighthouse Fall newsletter, so I am looking for some more "Practical Tips for Living" - We need them to be short & sweet, and like the title says - a practical tip for everyday life. If you have any, please email them to the lighthouse by 9/1 (lighthousebigbend@xxxxxxxxx) Thank you! Here are some examples from the recent past: Cleaning artificial flowers: Pour some salt into a paper bag and add the flowers. Shake vigorously and the salt will absorb the dust and dirt, leaving your artificial flowers looking like new.~ Bess Bradley Easy mixing: Use a ziplock bag to mix anything! For example, put flour and chicken in a plastic bag and shake them together to put on flour. You can put eggs, onion, green pepper, cheese, etc. in a bag and shake it all together to make an omelet. ~ Sally Benjamin Slick solution: Instead of measuring cooking oil use solid shortening, it won't spill. ~ Elizabeth Bowden Thanks for your help!
