A Small Way to Save Water

A strange breed humans are.  It seems that we never fail to look for change to come.  In the winter we look forward to the warmth of spring and summer, then in the heat of summer we seek the solice of cool air.  For many the way to beat the summer heat is by cranking up the A/C and blowing it's arctic winds throughout our house.  But for us few, the bold, the Mustachians of the world we choose to embrace the heat, and outsmart it.

Birkenstock Resoling

After about a month of research, despair, haggling and luck I finally am able to wear my Birkenstock's again.

My Square Foot Garden

My Square Foot GardenSquare foot gardening was a great experiment this year.  I had read about it before and really wanted to get into it.  Luckily one of my friends also wanted to and having a friend support you really helps to get things done.  It was already late in the year for starting a garden (mid June), but we decided that if we don't do it now we may just procrastinate until this time next year.

Homemade Yogurt

This started while I was in Taiwan, one of the members in our ward had started making yogurt at home and that got me interested in trying to make it myself.  Of course I went to Google and started looking up all the do's and don'ts of yogurt making.  On June 20th, 2012 I received my first yogurt maker from Amazon.com, the Euro Cuisine Yogurt Maker Model No. YM80 .  What I like about this model is that it comes with glass jars instead of plastic.  I don't know about you but I've had plenty of water that's come from heated plastic bottles that have sat in my car for 4-8 hours and just think that I wouldn't want to make my yogurt with plastic jars.
