The name arises from the fact that wolves’ ears stand erect while the ears of many breeds of dog flop over.  A dog ear can serve as a bookmark.  While generally frowned upon by those that want to preserve books in their original condition, it is particularly common in use on paperbacks which are designed to be cheaper and more harshly used…

    Just for curiosity sake, we looked up the definition of the word “fence”.  Of course, most of the meanings behind the word revolve around the protective structures we know and love here at Fence City.  But we really have to wonder how, over the many years of time, did the word ever take on meanings that relate to stolen goods?  And, like the chicken-or-the-egg-which-came-first debate, we wonder if our definition of fence came before or after that of fighting with swords? FENCE fens/ noun:  fence; plural noun:  fences a barrier, railing, or other upright structure, typically…

    Keeping the President, his family, and the rest of the White House occupants safe hasn’t been easy. In the past year, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has been assaulted by a knife-wielding assailant (with bad knees) who opened the front door, a pair of drunk Secret Service agents who crashed their vehicle, and a four-year-old who wiggled under-neath the main gate. Not to mention a runaway quadcopter operated by a drunk intelligence analyst. To try to solve this trending problem, the National Park Service and the Secret Service are adding new outward-facing spikes to the White House fence, as well…

  • Underlay for laminate flooring, which one?

    Andrea Bainbridge
    1 Jul 2015 | 5:42 am
    Before installing a new laminate floor we may want to place a layer underneath the actual floor. It is called foam, underlay, or base.

Whether you’re getting your American flag ready to fly in honor of the 4th of July, Memorial Day or just to be patriotic, you should display it properly and with respect.

    Last year we were on the lookout for a rented house to live in. We some great houses, but we also saw some shocking places that made us want to do nothing more than run off down the street screaming. One particular house sticks in my mind, mainly because of the horrific state of the bath. You could tell that even the rental agent was a bit embarrassed to be showing it us, as the bath looking like something out of a horror movie. It was streaked with the kind of stains you don’t want to know the origin of. The caulking was pretty much non-existent and the taps looked like they’d be…
  • Everyday Items Dirtier Than a Toilet Seat!

    ‘Jack and Jill went up the hill To race to get to the bathroom Jack made it first and locked the bathroom door And Jill had to wait about an hour’ It doesn’t quite work, does it? The essence of the poem is there when describing a Jack and Jill bathroom though. Jack and Jill did things together and also shared the experience of accidentally tumbling down the hill (although Jack clearly came off the worse!). In a Jack and Jill bathroom, the space is shared, or at least that’s the idea behind it. A Jack and Jill Bathroom is a bathroom that has two doors and is usually accessible from…

    Chances are that you’ve never spent a lot of time thinking about toilet paper. It’s just one of those household staple products we chuck in the trolley when we’re doing the weekly shop, and which we only notice when the roll has run out and nobody has thought to replace it. It’s only when you travel abroad you notice that toilet paper isn’t the same everywhere and that there might be a lot more to toilet paper than you first imagined. Brits Spend the Most on Loo Paper Prices for everything vary, but it’s surprising to learn that Britons pay twice as much for loo rolls as…
  • Adapting Your Bathroom for an Elderly Relative

    Ant Langston
    28 Apr 2015 | 7:03 am
    We’re all living longer. Data released by the Office for National Statistics predict that one-third of babies that were born in 2013 will live to celebrate their 100th birthday. Coupled with an ageing population is the rapid rise in the costs of elderly care, with the average cost of having an elderly relative in a care home coming in at around £28,500 per year. It’s therefore no surprise that more of us than ever are cutting the care home fees by having elderly relatives live with us as part of the family either in a specially adapted extension or with improvements to the…

  • Upgrade Your Existing Fireplace without Replacing It

    George Roy

    The joy of a mesmerizing fire in the fireplace can be lost, once the inefficiency of the appliance is understood. Open fireplaces can lose up to 20% more heat through the course of winter than they give back in roaring fires. If you want to upgrade the efficiency of your fireplace but without buying a costly fireplace insert that changes the look of your hearth, there are other and less expensive strategies. Firebacks Firebacks are similar in purpose to fireplace inserts in that they increase the insulation in a fireplace and reflect heat off the rear wall. More insulation means heightened…

    In the quest for cleaner, fresher air, two main types of air cleaners have become popular: single-room and whole-home. How they work Single-room air cleaners cover small areas Single-room air cleaners are just like their name implies.  They’re small, portable, localized devices that are placed in individual rooms or areas to clean the air.  They usually incorporate a fan to move air, some kind of filter to remove particles, and often an electronic component that electronically charges the air to increase filtration. Whole-home air cleaners are a more complete solution. Whole-home air…

    In today’s world, computers have become integrated into nearly every aspect of life, from entertainment and education to finances and even relationships. While we’ve yet to reach a futuristic reality where our devices have literally become appendages, when it comes to characterizing the role computers play in our everyday lives, a term like “sidekick” may be apropos—after all, does a day go by that we don’t spend time on our computers?

    I was lucky enough to spend 10 days in Richmond, Virginia a few weeks ago for our son’s wedding. Everywhere we went, we encountered warm hospitality. For example, one morning in the hotel, as I left my room and walked toward the elevator, I heard the maid down the hall call out, “Have a nice day, y’all!” I turned around to see to whom she was speaking…and realized she was talking to me! I heard that phrase again and again during our stay. People of all ages held open doors for each other and offered unsolicited help with directions. The waiters and bartenders spent extra time…

However acetone is a harsh chemical and I was worried it would melt or bleach the carpet. So I went online and googled around and to my surprise saw hair spray suggested for taking the polish off carpets and clothes. So I tried it and the nail polish spill vanished. I did have to rub the area several times to get all the product out but I felt so proud of myself in the moment. I thought I'd share just incase anyone of you…

    When landscaping your yard, it is important to keep in mind how much water you will need to maintain it all. A thirsty landscape that depends on a lot of water is not only expensive; it is environmentally harmful. In California, Governor Jerry Brown ordered mandatory water use reductions on April 1 (and no—it’s no joke). A great way you can do your part to bring California back from this 4-year drought is to change your water use habits, and water-wise landscaping is an excellent way to reduce excessive and needless water use.

    Aah, the first step to a useful living room: create more dust and mayhem! Why? Because it’s fun! And because all those nifty comfortable things we’ve gotten used to so badly don’t work for themselves: they need electricity. But we don’t want that to be visible, do we? Of course we don’t. Even back when they originally built our house, wires were placed to be barely visible.

    Living and dining room, sitting in a tree, K-I-… Wait, that doesn’t make any sense. At all. Or does it? In our case, it does, as they are practically one room. So we treat them as one as well.  The previous owners had it set up to have the dining room against the street, then the living room in the middle, and the kitchen in the back (where we have it as well). This worked for them, because that generation was raised with the idea that day-to-day living happened in or around the kitchen, and the dining room was for special occasions only (or for when they had visitors).

    The final nail in the coffin of what used to be our living room: getting rid of the old wallpaper. Now this wallpaper had all the looks of being a more feisty opponent than what we had removed so far, so we came prepared. First we picked up some new weaponry to add to our inventory: a spiked roller. Together with the block brush, the scraper knife and a putty knife this should be all we need to tackle our latest adversary. And of course a bucket and a whisk to make the very dilluted wallpaper glue (add ten times more water than the box says, or ten times less glue), just as we did before…

Walk outside your door and look up – the material that connects the side of your house and the roof overhang is the soffit. The soffit often looks just like plain planks or board that doesn’t really seem to be doing much to improve the home functionally. It certainly doesn’t appear to be an important part of the home’s structure. In fact, its main function appears to be largely aesthetic – possibly just to make the roof look prettier, or…
