  • I have a propane fueled fireplace?

    and the pilot went out....i cannot relight the pilot either by the button or manually with a long match....YES i have propane ~ plenty of it....so i'm thinking that the pilot may not be getting propane like it should...i know that sometimes they can become clogged with dust and such...provided the propane is OFF would it be safe to clean the pilot with canned air to blow out any debris that may be in there?

  • my dog has a tick....how do i remove it?

    actually the tick has been removed but unfortunately my puppy pulled away quickly and i think i missed the head.....i'm almost sure of it because i can still see what appears to be a couple of tiny legs and there is a small bump there that's almost scab-like....now its sensitive and he wont let me get to it with tweezers (it's just under his chin almost to his neck).....so....i have heard of humans being able to put stuff on ticks to suffocate them like nail polish or vaseline.....will this work for a puppy?....if not what do i do for self help....i hate to take him to the vet for this but will if i need to. thanks

  • what exactly does niacin do?

    specifically what can it do for me? not just as a vitamin or supplement but i have seen "flush free" niacin supplements which leads me to believe that it can be taken to warm the body by boosting metabolism (of course i know that flush free wouldn't allow for that feeling) but CAN niacin help to warm you? how about as an energy booster? is it a decent metabolic/energy booster?

  • looking for the name of this movie?

    some things i remember from it: at the beginning of the movie a man and his wife were on their boat and a plane crashed and they rescued a little girl ~ who they kept.

    another thing i remember is a bar called something like tikibar that the main character frequented but he wasn't supposed to drink because he was an alcoholic (i think he did get drunk once)

    his wife was shot and killed in their bed while he was outside in the middle of the night looking for whoever was on his property (which seemed swamp-like) ~ i think this was the reason he got drunk

    from this point he starts to go after the people who killed his wife and ultimately it is found out that the whole thing is run by a woman......it also seems that eric roberts played this womans lover in the movie but i looked him up and dont recognize any of the titles

    any help out there?,,,this is driving me nuts!

  • unreasonable dog: new behavior ~ help?

    we have a dog who is 2.5 years old. we have had him since he was about a month old (we found him and couldnt find his owner through advertisement so we kept him). he is a jack russell mix and is extremely smart, house broken and clean. he is a mostly indoor dog and only goes out a few hours or so a day for bathroom and play but sleeps indoors. around august he began displaying behavior that we had never seen before. if someone approaches me or my daughter he goes after them barking and does not want them touching us or sitting near us.

    well on halloween we brought 2 eight week old pure mini aussies home (both males). jack had no problem with them and doesnt still but he has become extremely territorial. there is no competition for food because we free feed and have several bowls throughout the house (the pups eat together but jack has his pick of where to eat). lately he doesnt want the pups to approach me and has gotten to where he wont even let the cats into the room (had them before jack).

    so my question is that since i basically know what is causing the problem at this point (although he started before the pups came) how can i stifle or rectify the problem?

  • Does anyone else find it kind of creepy and weird that?

    on the Today show, Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotbe manage to drink wine or liquor most every single day before noon (a lot of times before 11 a.m.).....they are annoying enough as it is but I swear it seems like adding alcohol to their segment just makes them that much more stupid......I can't even drink alcohol unless the sun has set (just seems weird to me to drink during the day)....i see them drinking in the morning and think god how can they do that?.....i know they are not getting sloshed and continually drinking (at least on camera) but eeeeew.......anyone else find this strange or even notice it?

  • how do i go about dealing with certain people who?

    are argumentative and/or confrontational......

    you know the type ~ the ones who, when you say day they say night, you say good they say bad etc.....

    i am so sick and tired of having conversations with people that when i say something they always have some contradicting statement to add to it

    for instance if i am talking with someone about current events they always add to the conversation some statement that will make it seem as though i am wrong or just don't have my facts straight.....whether or not i am wrong is not what bothers me ~ it's the fact that it just really doesn't matter because its petty and is neither here nor there

    i just get tired of talking to people and have it seem more like an up hill battle of an argument rather than a conversation over any particular subject

    i have begun to find myself thinking the conversation through a step ahead before it actually occurs so as to avoid certain scenarios/paths for it to go down

    it just seems to me like they do it so they feel more self-righteous in the "one-upmanship" area and i so want so badly to call them on it but i know better

    how do i handle people like this?....normally i would just avoid them but these are people i have to talk to and deal with daily

  • how do i clean my countertop icemaker?

    i have a portable countertop magic chef icemaker which i absolutely adore.....i have only had it for about 3 months but i need to clean it.....i see where it is beginning to get dark "stains" (i know it is not a stain but just buildup of probably sulfur) and it is beginning to get a slimy feel on the interior......how do i go about cleaning this?.......i pour water into the reservoir and it takes 11 minutes to produce ice......the tricky part is that there are places that are not easily accessible to clean.....do i use any solution for this like vinegar or is this a hand clean only task?......please help! thanks

  • oven's gone haywire....can anyone help troubleshoot?

    it's a maytag wall oven and the warranty is gone (the oven is 10 years old)....day before yesterday we had a bad lightning storm so this could have something to do with it (i think the house may have been struck because it sounded like a shotgun being fired in our living room)

    anyway i was going to bake cookies and needed the oven on 375 degrees for 10-12 mins.....6 mins later the first batch was burned.....so i placed a meat thermometer in the oven and it read well over 500 degrees.......is this a possible element problem or wiring maybe?

    i priced wall ovens online at sears, home depot, and lowes and some run upwards to $3700 (which i am not inclined to pay)......can anyone help troubleshoot this for me?

  • i have a somewhat gross and sad, but humorous and sadistic situation....what do i do?

    this is probably not what some may think its going to be.....we have citronella candles that sit on our railing on our front deck for mosquito control.

    we also have an orchestra of tree frogs ~ if i count 1 i can definitely count 30+ on the front deck.

    last night i blew out the candles and went to get ready for bed. as luck would have it i had to go out to my car to get something and noticed that apparently a tree frog had gotten into one of the candles and was sitting up along the inside rim of the candle. he had gotten into it while it was just tacky and setting up. unfortunatley the little guy didnt get out before the wax solidified so his back legs are stuck in the wax and he cant get out.

    imo this is the hilarious part. his back legs are stuck in the wax and i dont know how to get him out of the candle. its only about 7" in diameter so i cant relight the candle lest i either have fried frog legs or just total fried frog. i dont want to just yank him out of there because i dont know if i will dismember him or mame him. that is the gross part. i dont want to throw the candle out. i have only lit it twice so its practically brand new and they are not inexpensive. its only a tree frog and as i said there are plenty of them so its not like im hurting the population or anything so if the frog dies so be it

    i just need to know how i can get this frog out of my candle.

    for those that are skeptics on the truthfulness of this post i dont know what to tell you ~ i realize this sounds totally ridiculous.

    i am posting under pets ~ reptiles because i really dont see a category other than dyi or the home improvements to post under
