Dad Decides To Show His Two Nervous Sons The Center Core of a Wasps Nest

images via : youtube.com

There is something so mysterious and intriguing about what lies inside of things that we are usually not privy to.  Dan and his son Lincoln have a channel where they open up all kinds of things together to discover what lies inside.  In the video you are about to watch, we join this family in discovering what lurks inside the bowels of a Wasp’s Nest! Obviously they were not going to go near a live nest, so they ordered one that was no longer inhabited, from eBay.  I find it so admirable that Dan has been sharing his curiosity with Lincoln, in exploring such fascinating things, by doing these in home science projects.

There is nothing better that a parent can model and offer a child, than the fostering of intrinsic curiosity about the world in general, and more specifically in the workings of nature. After unpacking the wasp’s nest, you will see Dan begin the process of cutting open the nest, as Lincoln and his friend seem to be having a mixture of anticipatory excitement and a bit of squeamish fear.

I myself, watched with baited breath, as the cutting open of the nest proceeded. I have to admit I was pretty nervous there could be some hidden wasps inside! Lincoln is a little bit afraid that there still might be a live hornet inside, despite the fact that they have been assured there is not.

When the cutting process is finished their gasps of amazement at the intricacy of the internal structure, matched my own.  Nature is just so fascinating, and the building capacity of the insect kingdom, is truly mind-boggling to view.  Get ready for some really amazing footage!

Vinegar is arguably one of the most useful substances on the planet, at least when it comes to making life in your home easier, less expensive and safer! Why use nasty chemicals that cost an arm and a leg when you can use something that has been proven by time and countless mothers and grandmothers? I personally use vinegar for more things than I can count, and I have known about the wonderful liquid since before I can remember because my mom used it for literally everything. We are going to thoroughly run through some of the best little known vinegar life hacks that will make your life so much easier.

Is your drain clogged? Try pouring baking soda, followed by vinegar, down the drain and watch the magic. Something gooey sticking to your wall? Grab the vinegar and give it a squirt, then easily wipe it away.

Does your trash can smell like garbage, even when it’s empty? Soak a piece of bread in vinegar and leave it in the garbage can overnight, and voila, no more stank. It can also be used as an all-purpose cleaner: just fill up a spray bottle with one third vinegar and two thirds water.

Too many fruit flies? Fill a glass with apple cider vinegar, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke a few holes. The flies enter, but cannot escape. It can even be used to straighten clothes if an iron isn’t available. A few other uses include keeping cats off the furniture, helping cut flowers stay fresh longer, getting tough stains out of pots and pans and cleaning glasses for a smudge-free sheen. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hopefully you find these helpful tips and tricks over the next few months.

When it comes to cleaning just about everyone loves learning new simple ways to get the same old things done. It can be fun and interesting to discover what nifty and quick solutions people have come up with to solve common problems. This video, from YouTube channel Outdoors and Gear Review highlights a helpful trick for dealing with a common and difficult problem you’re likely to encounter when tidying and cleaning your bathroom up; hard water deposits and stains.

Hard water can be a real pain in the neck and the nasty looking stains and blemishes that it leaves behind on bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be extremely hard to fully remove.  The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the crusty, whitish colored mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind. Over time these gradually build up on stuff, especially faucets and shower heads.

Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need strong, harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of them effectively. However, there’s a better and more affordable way to go about cleaning a shower head with crusted on mineral build up. All you need is apple cider vinegar, a Ziploc bag, and a rubber band.

Simply pour some apple cider vinegar into the plastic bag and place it over and on the shower head. Use a rubber band to secure it in place and then leave it on overnight. Remove the baggy the following day, wipe the shower head clean, and it should be restored to its former glory!

Check out the video for more information and to see just how shiny and spotless looking it turns out. This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean hard water stains. It requires minimal effort or exertion on your part so try it the next time you’re stuck cleaning the house!

Check out These 5 Awesome Vaseline Life Hacks Everyone Should Know:

image via – facebook.com

While you may only think of Vaseline as an integral part of your grandmother’s home remedies and go to solutions, it actually really is a product that can seemingly do it all. People use the petroleum based, gooey, slippery substance for all sorts of things. There are countless household and beauty tricks that involve it, whether it’s loosening stuff up or smearing some on minor cuts and burns to help them heal. This article and video focuses on several beauty related uses for the product that may prove useful and come in handy, and will definitely save you time and money.

If you love to paint your nails then you likely have encountered polish bottles with their tops stuck on them. It takes almost superhuman strength to loosen and get them them of when they dry on and stick like that. To prevent this, take a cotton swab and dab some Vaseline around the base of the bottle opening and on the threads where the cap twists on, now it won’t stick the next time you go to open it.

Another nail polish trick is to coat the skin around your nails with some Vaseline before painting them. This will keep the polish from sticking to your skin, cut down on the clean up, and make your paint job look all the more professional.

If you have rough, dry skin on your feet rub a little Vaseline on them before you go to bed. Slather some all over your feet, then put on a pair of socks, and wake up to smooth soft skin. For those of us with sensitive ears that act up and become sore when wearing earrings, try rubbing Vaseline on the metal stud part that goes through your ear.

By coats the earring it helps them slide through and lessens any negative reaction or sensitivity you may have. If the scent of your perfume disappears way too quickly take some Vaseline, apply a thin coat to the area where you plan to spritz it on, then spray the perfume over that area. This works great at holding the fragrance and makes it last much more longer, plus it won’t alter the perfume’s scent.

If you haven’t already, toss a small jar of the wonder product in your bag so it’s always on hand close by. Use it to touch up makeup, soften rough skin, loosen stuck tops and lids, or as a lip gloss/chap-stick stand in when you inevitably lose or misplace them.

Besides being versatile, it’s also widely available and can be found in practically any pharmacy, health, convenience or grocery store around the world. Best of all, Vaseline is relatively cheap and costs only a few dollars, with a jar of it easily lasting a year or two before running out. With Vaseline, the possibilities may just be endless!

The Next Batch of Life Hacks are some incredibly useful winter life hacks that will make your life so much easier this winter:

image via : shutterstock.com

Along with the cold weather, there are a number of special challenges that winter brings along with it, and we all have to just deal with them! Dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy noses, darkness at 4PM, winter storms, the list goes on and on. One of the most annoying things by far is clearing walkways and driveways of snow and ice. The same goes for cars, but while you can often drive through a little bit of snow, you can’t with an ice-covered windshield. Not only is it illegal to drive with an obstructed view, it’s also insanely dumb and extremely dangerous!

While defrosting the car and scraping ice off the windshield seems like a necessary evil, it doesn’t have to be. You really don’t need to wake up extra early just to stumble around in the freezing cold darkness so that you can drive to work. Instead, you can save yourself some time and energy by doing the following:

In a spray bottle container mix together 2 parts isopropyl alcohol with 1 part water and then add in 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Shake it up, spray it directly onto an icy windshield, and watch the ice literally melt away right before your very eyes!

This rubbing alcohol spray is the perfect thing to have on hand for freezing cold mornings and icy windshields. You can leave the bottle in your car and it won’t even freeze, unless it gets well under zero. That’s because the freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -128.2 degrees Fahrenheit, so when you spray it on the ice, it doesn’t freeze up. Instead, it helps to melt the ice and keeps it from re-freezing. Since all you have to do is mist it on, it’s by far the quickest and easiest way to clear a windshield that’s coated with a thick layer of ice.

Don’t forget to check out the video to see exactly how well this works in action and be sure to pass it along to those who could use the smart tip. If it can make someone’s life a little bit easier this winter, then it’s worth it!

This is super helpful for those rough winter months.

Winter is tough. Along with the cold, dry weather comes a number of challenges that we all have to deal with. Cars need to be cleared of snow and ice and the same goes for walkways and driveways. Traveling often becomes way more difficult than usual and to top it off our health also takes a tumble for the worse.

Many of us are plagued by dry itchy skin, sore chapped lips, and stuffy noses that just won’t go away. These things quickly add up and can make it seem like winter is dragging on forever, especially when problems pop up outside on top of the health issues we may be facing.

Which is why these simple winter hacks, covered by the Millennial Moms YouTube channel, are perfect for right now. The video features some of the most clever ways to solve common winter woes and it might offer a solution to a problem you’re currently dealing with. These are some of the best hacks shown in the clip, but there are a total of fifteen, so be sure to check it out for all of the rest.

1) Winterize Boots- This trick does the job to keep feet warm and dry inside of boots that aren’t waterproof. After putting on your socks take two large plastic Ziploc bags and stick a foot in each. Grab a couple of rubber bands and slide them on over the bag to secure it in place and seal the top off around your leg. Pull on your boots and say goodbye to cold, wet feet.

2) Prevent Static Build Up In Hair- Pull a dryer sheet on over the bristles of your hair brush so that they poke through. Brush your hair as normal to eliminate the static, plus it’ll smell clean and great.

3) DIY Boot Inserts- Maintain the shape of tall boots by cutting a foam pool noodle into thirds or fourths, then stick a piece in each boot and they’ll stay upright, making them easier to organize and wear later on.

4) Stop Wipers From Freezing to a Car Windshield- Take an old pair of long cotton socks and slide them over each wiper, puling it down as far as it can go or reaches. This will prevent wipers from freezing and/or sticking to the windshield, and makes life all the more easier.

5) Organize Winter Gear- Hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, hand warmers, neck warmers and all other winter accessories can be neatly stored in one accessible place with a shoe organizer. Hang it over a door and never search for lost gloves again.

6) Windshield Treatment- This one is the best! A combination of vinegar and water works wonders at preventing frost and ice from building up on car windshields and windows. Mix the two liquids up in a spray bottle, spritz it on car windows, then wipe off with a soft cloth.

7) Boot Tray- Keep floors safe, clean, and dry by making your own boot tray. This one is much more appealing than commercially available ones and works even better. Fill a large metal cookie sheet with a layer of decorative rocks and put it near the door so that when people enter they can immediately place wet boots on the rocks. The water will drip through the rocks to the bottom and soon evaporate. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tips covered in the clip and be sure to pass it along to those who could use these smart hacks to make their own lives easier.

MAN DECIDES TO THROW A BIG BUCKET OF DRY ICE INTO A SWIMMING POOL:

images – via youtube.com

Dry ice has been used in many interesting endeavors and the hunks of frozen carbon dioxide never cease to amaze us. While it’s most widely known and used for keeping perishable food items frozen during transit, that hasn’t stopped inventive humans from incorporating it into everything from school science projects to chemotherapy, rockets, bug removal, fire extinguishers, fog machines, removing skin tags or moles, and so much more.

While the majority of these alternative types of uses play a specific role and serve a higher purpose, some dry ice tricks are simply for fun and entertainment. That’s exactly what this video of dry ice being tossed into a swimming pool is about; good old-fashioned fun!

The interesting concept was dreamed up and brought to light by one of YouTube’s most hilarious personalities, the Crazy Russian Hacker. He’s full of cool ideas and whether it’s conducting random experiments, testing out new gadgets, or sharing his favorite life hacks, he’s always up to something wild and strange.

For this particular project he decided to see exactly what would happen if thirty pounds of dry ice were dumped straight into a backyard swimming pool. Long story short, it’s pretty awesome!

The clip opens with the Crazy Russian hanging out poolside with an empty cooler, a pair of insulated gloves, and several bags of dry ice. He gets right down to it and starts breaking up the ice blocks into smaller chunks over the empty cooler.

Since his motto is “safety is the number one priority” he works with gloves on both hands to protect his skin against dry ice burns. Once the container is full of dry ice he picks it up and dumps it directly into the pool!

As soon as the dry ice hits the water it immediately reacts and the pool begins to bubble up. The warmer water in the pool starts to melt and break down the ice and soon a dense, thick white fog drifts off the surface before being carried away in the breeze.

The combined effects make it look as if the pool is boiling and you can hear the water bubbling as all of the gasses get released. In the background you can hear the Crazy Russian Hacker commenting on how “beautiful,” “amazing,” and “awesome” it is. He’s hilarious and might be just as entertaining as the dry ice in the pool!

If you’re thinking that dumping 30 pounds of dry ice in a pool may be dangerous, it’s not but only if the proper precautions are taken. Above all else, the one thing you should never do is handle it with your bare hands. Always use insulated gloves because they will prevent hands and skin from getting injured and/or burned by frostbite which occurs on contact with the stuff.

One more thing to keep in mind is that if you plan on breaking it up like how the Crazy Russian Hacker did in the clip, make sure to use protective eye wear as well. I think we can all agree that it’s always best to be safe than to be sorry! Here’s more on the science behind dry ice and what it is:

Dry ice is super-frozen carbon dioxide, which is the gas we exhale whenever we breathe out. It forms when carbon dioxide is exposed to extreme temperatures of at least -109° Fahrenheit. At that temperature or lower it changes from a gas straight to a solid and there is no liquid phase whatsoever in-between.

The inverse of this immediate change also happens to be true of it, so when dry ice melts it goes from solid to gas. That is why and how it produces the cloudy, fog-like effect that it’s known for.

Now that you have seen what thirty pounds of dry ice does to a swimming pool you can try it yourself, should you ever need to! It’s the perfect way to make a pool party memorable and everyone will love the cool, hypnotic effects. Plus, it’s highly likely that no one has ever seen anything quite like this done before and so they’re going to remember it forever.

He Takes 6,000 Matches And Lines Them Up. He Then Lights One Match and Watch The Domino Fire Effect In All It’s Glory!

image via – youtube.com

When we get hit with a really great snowstorm, I get inspired to build a beautiful fire, and hunker down to watch it grow with my family.  Once I get going on building the fire, I’m a bit of a pyromanic…consumed with the beauty of the flames, and compelled to have it reach that burning crescendo!

This brings me to this MESMERIZING video that I found, that you are about to see.  6,000 safety matches were lined up, by a very patient person to form a square.  What makes this footage so amazingly cool , is that safety matches, (aside from being safe), have the added advantage that their tips burn more slowly than the average match.

Because of this relative slowness, when the first match is lit, the flame travels in a domino-like effect across all 6,000 matches.  If you are patient enough to keep watching after it reaches it’s maximum flame, you will see it reverse the domino-effect as it methodically burns out, down to it’s very last match.

It is hard to explain the beauty of this little science experiment, but if you want a few minutes of Zen watch the video all the way through.  Even the black tendrils that remain at the end have an artistic composition.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did…Let me know.

10 Gardening Life Hacks and DIY Projects Everyone Should Know:

image via – shutterstock.com

This time of year is when everything starts to come alive again. The trees are beginning to bud, plants are starting to poke through the dirt, flowers are blooming, and the songbirds are out in full force. If you’re a gardener, that means it’s time to start digging in the dirt! Even if you aren’t a seasoned gardener, it’s not too late to get started. Who knows, once you try it, you may just end up falling in love with it!

Gardening is a good for your health, your wallet, and the Earth. Many people find that it’s a very relaxing and rewarding way to spend some quality time outdoors and it helps to improve their mood and life. Not only that, fresh healthy foods like fruits and vegetables can be grown to your tastes and cost much less than the grocery store variety. Plus, foods that you have taken the time to grow yourself always taste a lot better!

Beautiful, colorful flowers, green shrubbery, and ornamental plants can all help to liven up any yard and make it appear brand new. The possibilities for gardens are endless with thousands of varieties and combinations of seeds readily available. If you’re interested in learning more about gardening or making your green thumb greener, look no further. This video and what follows are some super clever ways to help ease your garden along. They all use everyday items and objects that you probably already have on hand or can pick up at the store for cheap, so check them out. This year garden smarter, not harder!

1. For plants that are sensitive to root disruption, such as beans and peas, use leftover cardboard tubes from paper towel and toilette paper rolls as planters. The tubes make transplanting much less stressful and ensures roots stay separate and untangled from one another.

2. If you don’t have a lot of space to work with try making a vertical garden on a wall, fence, or other space. The video shows how to use gutters to create a wall garden by drilling holes in the bottom of them for drainage. Measure and cut them to size and then hang on wall brackets.

3. To help seeds germinate and sprout earlier soak them overnight in lukewarm water before planting. 4. For a technological and creative approach to gardening check out the available software and apps out there for planning and plotting out gardens. They’re really useful for both new and seasoned gardeners and have even been shown to reduce the chances of ending up with failed crops.

5. For neat rows of evenly spaced plants use a measuring stick. To always have one handy nearby make one out of a long wooden handled gardening tool marking off intervals on it.

6. Keep track of plants by labeling what and where they are located. You can recycle last years labels by scraping off any old marker with sandpaper or use cheap Popsicle sticks, flat stones, or tiles as markers.

7. On cold nights where frost could be an issue you always need to protect sensitive seedlings. Cover them with a terracotta pot at night and simply uncover it the following morning.

8. A very common pest that plants often get is aphids, which are also known by their nastier sounding name, ‘plant lice.’ To get rid of the tiny bugs wrap sticky tape around your hand and brush them off your plants. This will help pick the aphids off while keeping them off your hands as well.

9. Make a super easy irrigation system by recycling old plastic water bottles. Punch a couple holes in the cap, cut the bottom off, insert it in the ground near the plant, and fill with water. This design allows water to slowly be released into the ground so it lasts longer, which is especially important and necessary if you are growing plants in hot, dry, arid conditions.

10. Recycle and reuse leftover water from cooking, like water used to boil veggies, and collect rainwater from your roof/eaves to help water your garden and decrease overall consumption. Every bit helps!

Here’s An Awesome Life Hack To Make Pasta Without a Colander:

image via – facebook.com

Whether you’re in the mood for some Italian cuisine or you’re pressed for time and need to make dinner in a hurry, there’s nothing quicker and easier to make than pasta. Most people always keep on hand at least a few boxes of pasta and a jar or two of tomato sauce. In fact, they’re considered basic food staples in many households and who doesn’t love a home cooked plate of spaghetti! Pasta is simply delicious and easy to make. Plus, if you ever need to feed a hungry group of people, a big pot of pasta and sauce is the perfect meal to serve.

All that you really need to do is boil up some water, drop in the pasta, strain it, and dump some sauce in with the cooked noodles, right? Not exactly, if you’re making it that way then you’re doing it wrong. If you want to make perfect pasta that tastes amazing, you have to do it the right way. The following tips covered in this video clip will help you do exactly that, so check them out and learn the proper way on how to cook and sauce pasta.

1. Add salt to the water, just before it begins to broil and before you place the pasta in the pot. This will make your pasta end up tasting a lot more flavorful and elevate it to a restaurant-quality level.

2. Do not add in olive oil to the water. If you add oil, the sauce will end up not sticking to the pasta, throwing the taste and texture off.

3. Don’t follow the instructions on the box. Each type of pasta is different in regards to how long it takes to cook. It’s better to taste taste and monitor it as you go along, that way it ends up how you like and prefer it. As for box instructions, oftentimes you don’t need to cook it as long as recommended.

4. Get the correct type of sauce for your pasta. If you plan on pairing it with a healthier sauce, use wider noodles. If you are using a thinner or runny sauce, use pasta with folds, like campanelle or rotini. They work great for holding thinner sauces on.

5. Before you drain the pasta, make sure to save at least half a cup of the starchy water it was cooked in. Then, once you’ve strained it, cook the pasta in the sauce and add in the starchy water you set aside. Cook it all together until the sauce is reduced and ready to serve.

6. Finally, if you plan on adding any additional fresh herbs or spices to the mix, make sure to always add them in with the pasta and sauce last. This will help keep the flavor fresh.

The next time you make pasta for dinner, be sure to try out all these tips and it will end up tasting perfect and absolutely wonderful.

Enjoy the tastiness:

This One Extra Shoelace Hole Life Hack Is Awesome.

image via – youtube.com

Have you ever wondered why there is an extra shoelace hole at the top of your shoe? Many running and hiking shoes have the extra hole and most people don’t ever use it. Instead, they skip threading the lace through the last top hole and tie them as usual. After seeing this video you will now know why they are there and how to use them to your advantage.  The extra holes can be used to prevent blisters on your heels and stop your feet from cramming forward into the front of the shoe. There are also a bunch of extra reasons that will be explained that most people are not aware of…

Now let’s really take a deep dive into this mysterious hole on everyone’s sneakers which for the most part seem to be ignored.. There comes a time in every persons life when they ponder the question, why is there an extra shoelace hole at the top of my shoe? Many running sneakers and hiking shoes have the extra hole and yet most people never use it.

Sometimes it’s located a little farther back than where many of us normally tie off our shoes. Instead of utilizing it, we skip threading the laces through the last top holes and tie them as usual. However, the seemingly useless and oddly placed holes are there for an important reason. After watching this video you’ll know exactly why shoemakers choose to include them and how to best use the feature to your advantage.

Basically the extra holes can be used to keep your foot firmly in place, rather than it sliding around which is what occurs when shoes are too loose. In turn, this can also help prevent blisters from forming on your heels and will stop your feet from cramming forwards into the front of the shoe.

When you tie laces using the “heel lock” or “lace lock” technique, as shown in the video, it creates more friction between the laces at the top of the shoe which are closest to your ankle. This serves to make and keep the heel/ankle area tight and snug in place without having to re-tighten your whole shoe. Even if you don’t have the extra shoelace hole you can still use the method on the top hole instead.

Here is how to tie the “lace lock.” Start by inserting the lace in backwards through the extra top holes so that you create a small loop on each side of the shoe. Cross your laces and insert them each into the loop on the opposite side then cinch them down. Be sure to pull down and not up because cinching upwards will leave the loop hanging out and other than that not being any good, it defeats the whole purpose of tying your shoes tightly. By pulling down towards the shoe you end up creating a nice tight lock that will keep your foot securely in place and your shoe snug. Finish by tying your shoelace as you normally would and you’re good to go.

Next up on our handpicked list of videos is a set of awesome vinegar life hacks that are super helpful:

image via – shutterstock.com

Vinegar is arguably one of the most useful substances on the planet, at least when it comes to making life in your home easier, less expensive and safer! Why use nasty chemicals that cost an arm and a leg when you can use something that has been proven by time and countless mothers and grandmothers? I personally use vinegar for more things than I can count, and I have known about the wonderful liquid since before I can remember because my mom used it for literally everything. We are going to thoroughly run through some of the best little known vinegar life hacks that will make your life so much easier.

Is your drain clogged? Try pouring baking soda, followed by vinegar, down the drain and witness the magic. Something gooey sticking to your wall? Grab the vinegar and give it a squirt, then easily wipe it away.

Does your trash can smell like garbage, even when it’s empty? Soak a piece of bread in vinegar and leave it in the garbage can overnight, and voila, no more stank. It can also be used as an all-purpose cleaner: just fill up a spray bottle with one third vinegar and two thirds water.

Too many fruit flies? Fill a glass with apple cider vinegar, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke a few holes. The flies enter, but cannot escape. It can even be used to straighten clothes if an iron isn’t available. A few other uses include keeping cats off the furniture, helping cut flowers stay fresh longer, getting tough stains out of pots and pans and cleaning glasses for a smudge-free sheen. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hopefully you find these helpful tips and tricks over the next few months.

When it comes to cleaning just about everyone loves learning new simple ways to get the same old things done. It can be fun and interesting to discover what nifty and quick solutions people have come up with to solve common problems. This video, from YouTube channel Outdoors and Gear Review highlights a helpful trick for dealing with a common and difficult problem you’re likely to encounter when tidying and cleaning your bathroom up; hard water deposits and stains.

Hard water can be a real pain in the neck and the nasty looking stains and blemishes that it leaves behind on bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be extremely hard to fully remove.  The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the crusty, whitish colored mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind. Over time these gradually build up on stuff, especially faucets and shower heads.

Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need strong, harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of them effectively. However, there’s a better and more affordable way to go about cleaning a shower head with crusted on mineral build up. All you need is apple cider vinegar, a Ziploc bag, and a rubber band.

Simply pour some apple cider vinegar into the plastic bag and place it over and on the shower head. Use a rubber band to secure it in place and then leave it on overnight. Remove the baggy the following day, wipe the shower head clean, and it should be restored to its former glory!

Check out the video for more information and to see just how shiny and spotless looking it turns out. This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean hard water stains. It requires minimal effort or exertion on your part so try it the next time you’re stuck cleaning the house!

Check out These 5 Awesome Vaseline Life Hacks Everyone Should Know:

image via – facebook.com

While you may only think of Vaseline as an integral part of your grandmother’s home remedies and go to solutions, it actually really is a product that can seemingly do it all. People use the petroleum based, gooey, slippery substance for all sorts of things. There are countless household and beauty tricks that involve it, whether it’s loosening stuff up or smearing some on minor cuts and burns to help them heal. This article and video focuses on several beauty related uses for the product that may prove useful and come in handy, and will definitely save you time and money.

If you love to paint your nails then you likely have encountered polish bottles with their tops stuck on them. It takes almost superhuman strength to loosen and get them them of when they dry on and stick like that. To prevent this, take a cotton swab and dab some Vaseline around the base of the bottle opening and on the threads where the cap twists on, now it won’t stick the next time you go to open it.

Another nail polish trick is to coat the skin around your nails with some Vaseline before painting them. This will keep the polish from sticking to your skin, cut down on the clean up, and make your paint job look all the more professional.

If you have rough, dry skin on your feet rub a little Vaseline on them before you go to bed. Slather some all over your feet, then put on a pair of socks, and wake up to smooth soft skin. For those of us with sensitive ears that act up and become sore when wearing earrings, try rubbing Vaseline on the metal stud part that goes through your ear.

By coats the earring it helps them slide through and lessens any negative reaction or sensitivity you may have. If the scent of your perfume disappears way too quickly take some Vaseline, apply a thin coat to the area where you plan to spritz it on, then spray the perfume over that area. This works great at holding the fragrance and makes it last much more longer, plus it won’t alter the perfume’s scent.

If you haven’t already, toss a small jar of the wonder product in your bag so it’s always on hand close by. Use it to touch up makeup, soften rough skin, loosen stuck tops and lids, or as a lip gloss/chap-stick stand in when you inevitably lose or misplace them.

Besides being versatile, it’s also widely available and can be found in practically any pharmacy, health, convenience or grocery store around the world. Best of all, Vaseline is relatively cheap and costs only a few dollars, with a jar of it easily lasting a year or two before running out. With Vaseline, the possibilities may just be endless!

The Next Batch of Life Hacks are some incredibly useful winter life hacks that will make your life so much easier this winter:

image via : shutterstock.com

Along with the cold weather, there are a number of special challenges that winter brings along with it, and we all have to just deal with them! Dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy noses, darkness at 4PM, winter storms, the list goes on and on. One of the most annoying things by far is clearing walkways and driveways of snow and ice. The same goes for cars, but while you can often drive through a little bit of snow, you can’t with an ice-covered windshield. Not only is it illegal to drive with an obstructed view, it’s also insanely dumb and extremely dangerous!

While defrosting the car and scraping ice off the windshield seems like a necessary evil, it doesn’t have to be. You really don’t need to wake up extra early just to stumble around in the freezing cold darkness so that you can drive to work. Instead, you can save yourself some time and energy by doing the following:

In a spray bottle container mix together 2 parts isopropyl alcohol with 1 part water and then add in 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Shake it up, spray it directly onto an icy windshield, and see the ice literally melt away right before your very eyes!

This rubbing alcohol spray is the perfect thing to have on hand for freezing cold mornings and icy windshields. You can leave the bottle in your car and it won’t even freeze, unless it gets well under zero. That’s because the freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -128.2 degrees Fahrenheit, so when you spray it on the ice, it doesn’t freeze up. Instead, it helps to melt the ice and keeps it from re-freezing. Since all you have to do is mist it on, it’s by far the quickest and easiest way to clear a windshield that’s coated with a thick layer of ice.

Don’t forget to check out the video to see exactly how well this works in action and be sure to pass it along to those who could use the smart tip. If it can make someone’s life a little bit easier this winter, then it’s worth it!

This is super helpful for those rough winter months.

Winter is tough. Along with the cold, dry weather comes a number of challenges that we all have to deal with. Cars need to be cleared of snow and ice and the same goes for walkways and driveways. Traveling often becomes way more difficult than usual and to top it off our health also takes a tumble for the worse.

Many of us are plagued by dry itchy skin, sore chapped lips, and stuffy noses that just won’t go away. These things quickly add up and can make it seem like winter is dragging on forever, especially when problems pop up outside on top of the health issues we may be facing.

Which is why these simple winter hacks, covered by the Millennial Moms YouTube channel, are perfect for right now. The video features some of the most clever ways to solve common winter woes and it might offer a solution to a problem you’re currently dealing with. These are some of the best hacks shown in the clip, but there are a total of fifteen, so be sure to check it out for all of the rest.

1) Winterize Boots- This trick does the job to keep feet warm and dry inside of boots that aren’t waterproof. After putting on your socks take two large plastic Ziploc bags and stick a foot in each. Grab a couple of rubber bands and slide them on over the bag to secure it in place and seal the top off around your leg. Pull on your boots and say goodbye to cold, wet feet.

2) Prevent Static Build Up In Hair- Pull a dryer sheet on over the bristles of your hair brush so that they poke through. Brush your hair as normal to eliminate the static, plus it’ll smell clean and great.

3) DIY Boot Inserts- Maintain the shape of tall boots by cutting a foam pool noodle into thirds or fourths, then stick a piece in each boot and they’ll stay upright, making them easier to organize and wear later on.

4) Stop Wipers From Freezing to a Car Windshield- Take an old pair of long cotton socks and slide them over each wiper, puling it down as far as it can go or reaches. This will prevent wipers from freezing and/or sticking to the windshield, and makes life all the more easier.

5) Organize Winter Gear- Hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, hand warmers, neck warmers and all other winter accessories can be neatly stored in one accessible place with a shoe organizer. Hang it over a door and never search for lost gloves again.

6) Windshield Treatment- This one is the best! A combination of vinegar and water works wonders at preventing frost and ice from building up on car windshields and windows. Mix the two liquids up in a spray bottle, spritz it on car windows, then wipe off with a soft cloth.

7) Boot Tray- Keep floors safe, clean, and dry by making your own boot tray. This one is much more appealing than commercially available ones and works even better. Fill a large metal cookie sheet with a layer of decorative rocks and put it near the door so that when people enter they can immediately place wet boots on the rocks. The water will drip through the rocks to the bottom and soon evaporate. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tips covered in the clip and be sure to pass it along to those who could use these smart hacks to make their own lives easier.

These are just really helpful.

Remove pet fur from carpets and seats with a spray bottle, water, and a squeegee.  Spray the water on the seat and then move the squeegee over the area, it will gather and lift up the hair so you can easily pick it up.

Clean air vents with small foam brushes.  They can easily fit in even the smallest vents and pick up all the dirt and dust inside them.  

Use coffee filters to dust your car dashboard.  Unlike cloth towels and paper towels, coffee filters won’t leave behind lint or just push dust around.  Instead they work great at picking up dust and you can toss a few in the glove compartment for whenever you might need one to freshen up the dash.

Get streak free windows by cleaning them with newspaper.  It’s the cloths and paper towels that leave streaks when you clean your windows so don’t even bother using them.  Instead, spray down the window with cleaner and wipe it off with a piece of newspaper as you normally would. 

Get rid of stubborn, lingering odors by sprinkling baking soda on car seats and carpets.  Let it sit for a couple of hours before vacuuming it up. The baking soda should absorb the foul odors, leaving your car smelling fresh and clean.

Man Renovates a Retired Airplane Into His House.

image via – youtube.com

Many people want that nice colonial house, in the burbs with a well mown lawn and a perfect little white picket fence. While others prefer more; shall we see exotic shelters that are completely unique, creative and many times out of this world! I myself am somewhere in the middle, I’d like the nice comforts of a small town, or maybe even a small city, but at the same time I could see myself going off the grid living in an old in one of the houses from the tiny house movement! Anyway with all that being said, this brings us to today’s fascinating story which features a unique man named Bruce Campbell age 66, citizen of planet earth..

Bruce spent the greater portion of his life as an engineer before he retired a few years back. Ever since his retirement he’s found himself with a lot of extra time on his hands. He wasn’t sure what he was going to do after he retired but after many hours of contemplation he came up with up with an idea.

Bruce has pretty much always been obsessed with airplanes ever since he was a kid. He owned a plot of land he bought many years prior, now he just needed to find the cashflow to get an old retired plane that can’t fly anymore. He pursued his goal and ended up purchasing a Boeing 727 Jet Airplane for $100,000! Seems like a good deal? Maybe I’m not really familiar with old, none functioning plane prices…

The easy part had been accomplished. Bruce was now the proud owner of a broken down Boeing 727 that will never fly again. But now the hard part was just beginning…. Bruce had to somehow get the plane from the place he bought it from and transfer it 1000’s of miles into the lush forests of Oregon.

Somehow Bruce figured out how he was going to transport the big plane. The only problem was, this transportation job was going to end up being more expensive than the 727 itself! At this point he was so zoned in on his goal of having his airplane dream house in the middle of the forest was happening no matter what the cost! For those of you interested the transport alone was $120,000!

So now he found himself with an empty plane in the middle of the woods and he was already $220,000 deep into this once in a lifetime project. He initially thought he could get it done from start to finish in a year…. However he completely underestimated the complexity of this job. It took him years of planning, he was going to make sure everything was perfect…

Have a great day!

Every Time This Spoiled Bunny’s Human Stops Petting He Throws The Funniest Hissy Fit:

image via – facebook.com

Some animals know exactly what they want and oftentimes they enjoy receiving a nice, gentle, relaxing hand massage from their human companions. It’s no secret that many of our furry pets love to be pet, which may be why we call them “pets” in the first place. Or maybe it’s the other way around, and we call it petting because they are our pets. Whatever the case may be, lots of animals simply love being stroked and scratched. They usually have a sweet spot where they especially like being rubbed. For cats it seems to be around the cheeks, dogs like their ears and back scratched, and then there are some pets whose sweet spot is everywhere and anywhere.

The little bunny in this video seems to fall in the latter category. From the looks of it he likes being pet all over, especially down his backside. The man in the video gently strokes his ears, nose, cheekbones, temples, head, and back, while the bunny twitches his nose and sits with a content expression on his face, his body completely relaxed, at ease and perfect peace.

When the man stops petting him the bunny is clearly not happy about it. He stamps his furry little paws and lets out adorable growling sounds in protest. It might just be the cutest behavior I’ve ever seen a rabbit do! At one point the furry little guy searches for more pet-pets by crawling under the man’s hand, urging him to resume the mini-massage that he so rudely ended. This bunny knows what he wants and he’s basically telling the man through his grunts, growls, and foot thumping that he is not pleased the cuddle session ended!

Contrary to popular belief, lots of bunnies love being pet and shown affection. The areas they most enjoy being pet is on their head and down their backside. Many often like their dewlap, the roll of skin underneath their chin, scratched and rubbed, but some don’t like this at all. The bunny will let you know whether or not it’s enjoying the attention. When they purr, chatter their teeth, flip flop over, and close their eyes it means they like it and if you stop and they poke your hand with their head it means “don’t stop, keep petting forever!”

Rabbits and bunnies are very expressive, you just have to know how to read them, and over time you become familiar and accustomed to an individual one’s behavior. Like every other pet in the world, they have their own distinct quirks and personality traits…

The cute rabbit in this video has certainly bonded with his human friend as he feels comfortable demanding the man do what the lil bunny wants him to do. The little cutie looks so happy being pet and snuggled in his blanket, and if that can’t put a smile on your face then I don’t know what will. Enjoy this lil’ fussy bunny and his adorable antics. It sure. brightened my day.

In our next featured video of the day take a tour of The Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers which was built in the 13th century and has remained untouched since 1932:

image via – youtube.com

When you think of a castle you likely imagine a sturdy, imposing fortress that was built from stone and surrounded by a water-filled moat. After all, castles were purposefully constructed to keep people safe and protected inside their walls. They are what stood between everything from marauding enemies to wild beasts and the destructive forces of mother nature. Castles were meant to be strong and had to be able to withstand long, drawn out, aggressive sieges. In later years they took on a more extravagant role and today they are seen as dreamy, fantasy-like places, filled with magic and romance.

The abandoned castle seen in this incredible footage is called Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers and it looks like it comes straight out of a Disney movie. The beautiful ruins are located in the town of Les Trois-Moutiers, in the west of France. For centuries the majestic castle has sat in the middle of a heavily wooded area, surrounded by a water filled moat, imposing and elegant all at once.

Today it is being left to slowly fade away back into nature, yet despite the years of neglect, the castle still looks like it’s fit for royalty. All that it needs is the right owner or group to step in and restore it to its former glory. To truly understand the amount of detail and thought that went into constructing this castle, you need to take the video tour because it’s the only thing that gives it justice. You can feel and sense all of the tragedies and triumphs this castle has borne witness to.

It may have been overtaken by nature and seemingly forgotten about, but if these walls could talk they would tell tales of epic battles and grand celebrations. Be sure to check it out and take the tour, here’s more on the history of the Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers.

First and foremost, the castle is filled with history and has quite the tumultuous past. It dates back to at least the 13th century and was originally built as a safe haven for the notable Bauçay family, who were lords of Loudun and answered directly to the king of France himself. Over the following centuries the castle was overtaken twice by English forces during the middle ages before it was eventually given back to the French.

After being restored it went on to become a very popular place where nobility gathered for magnificent galas and lavish, extravagant, over the top parties. The good times didn’t last long though and during the French Revolution the castle was once again destroyed after being sacked.

There it sat for some ten years or so before a well-heeled businessman named Francois Hennecart bought the property with the intent to once again restore it. He managed to add a vineyard but in 1857 it was taken over and passed on to Baron Joseph Lejeune, a wealthy relative of Napoleon III. He rebuilt the castle extensively in the romantic style that was popular at the time and continued on the tradition of holding lavish parties.

It was during a subsequent renovation in 1932 that the castle succumbed to its latest major setback and ever since then it has sat vacant. At the time, the current owner had been installing central heat and somehow a fire was sparked. The resulting damage not only devastated most of the structure, numerous rare pieces of art, furniture, tapestries, books, and paintings were sadly destroyed as well and lost forever.

In recent years there have been a number of efforts to restore Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers, but it seems that everyone who tries gets railroaded into giving up. Hopefully a preservation society or some group can step in and help to rebuild it because it is a seriously beautiful, magically impressive castle that deserves saving.

Have a wonderful day!

In our next featured video we have handpicked one of our favorite houses from the ‘Tiny House Movement’. This house may only be 140 Square Feet but it is so nice inside and out:

image via – youtube.com

The tiny house movement and lifestyle that embraces simple living in small spaces has grown immensely in recent years. People from all walks of life the world over are trading in their big open homes for much more modest ones. Many are attracted to the low cost of constructing, maintaining and living in these homes.

Others prefer the freedom they can often provide by being mobile or easily moved. In some places they have even become a popular option for housing the homeless. With such versatile and ever expanding uses its easy to see why tiny house living has become so popular.

A video uploaded by YouTube channel HouzzTV gives an inside look at one woman’s beautiful 140 square foot house for all those curious as to how these houses can look and what they fit. The tiny residence is located on a 1 acre lot in Ojai, California where owner Vina Lustado chose to permanently settle down.

The house was constructed on a trailer with wheels so that it’s classified as temporary housing in order to comply with state law that requires permanent living units be at least 600-700 sq. feet. All of the electricity is supplied by four batteries which are fed by three solar panels and a 7 gallon propane tank fuels a fireplace, stove, and hot water heater.

Inside, the space holds a built in desk, sofa, and loft. There are lots of neat floor to ceiling storage solutions that allow much more to fit than you would expect. Sturdy butcher block kitchen counter tops double as work space and a small refrigerator sits under them.

A skylight in the sleeping loft lets in natural light and can also act as a fire escape in case of emergencies. A large porch seems to double and expand the inside space outwards and can fit up to 10 people comfortably.

The scaled down house is eye opening as to how little a person actually needs to be comfortable and happy. Vina has fit everything in such a neat and organized fashion that she even has room for guests to sleep over in a lofted area above the desk.

Her micro home sits among a scenic forest, surrounded by beautiful trees and nature. The lifestyle fits exactly what the relaxed and content owner was after, as she says “It’s my house. If I move, it will move with me.” Would you like to live in a home like this?

Hope you enjoy this home as much as I did.

In our next featured video we found another tiny house built at the top of a mountain completely off the grid. The man who built this beautiful house is a professional snowboarder who wanted to live away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life and find piece in nature:

image via – youtube.com

Going Of The Grid is a series on the Seekers Stories network where Laura Ling explores the lives of people who are completely disconnected from the grid. Currently their are over 180,000 Americans a year who are choosing to veer away from the modern internet-focused world in pursuit of something simpler and more sustainable.

Mike Basich a pro-snowboarder decided to live life off the grid, where he built a tiny cabin on top of a mountain in Truckee, CA. His house is only 225 square feet, and sits in the lap of nature, where he awakens to the sun and goes to sleep to the sunset.  He states that unlike the city life where you are always racing time, here he can be in sync with nature while living a simple life of solitude.

The house does not have plumbing, but does pick up running water from a stream that runs close to his tiny cabin.  The house doesn’t have an indoor toilet or a real shower, but he did build a sweet hot tub outside.  The shape of the house is designed through the golden ratio which makes things more pleasant to the eye.  This cozy cabin is absolutely amazing.

He is inspired by nature and allows it to fuel his creativity through photography.  Living off the grid is a dream that Mike has had since he was a little kid and he is finally living his dream. Would you ever live off the grid, why or why not? What do you think of Mike’s tiny cabin off the grid?

In our next featured video we found a cave discovered by an artist who decided to be secluded from society for 25 years and transformed this cave into beautiful art and living space.

In the high desert of Northern New Mexico, you can hear the sounds of a man entranced in his work underground in a cave.  You will see a small entry that opens into a cavern, where Ra Paulette has spent the last 25 years carving New Mexico’s sandstone into magnificent art. He’s spent years doing this work with the company of only his dog.

When asked if he is a man obsessed with cave digging, he gives the really thoughtful response: “Is a child obsessed with play?”  He waxes on to say, that when you love what you are doing, you are driven to do it all the time.  He sees his majestic pieces as environmental projects; his goal is to inspire people such that they open up emotionally, in response to the enormity and power of what his carvings evoke.

It can be said that he has created magic in the underground caves that he has carved.  They are at once intimate and overwhelming.  Interestingly, Ra doesn’t see himself as an artist, but simply as a man expressing his sense of wonder in a passionate way.  I would beg to differ with his opinion that he is not an artist.  What he has created, is livable art of unbelievable power.

The video you are about to watch tells the rest of his story, and gives you a tour  of his magnificent caves.  Unbelievably, his work had no notoriety until a filmmaker asked to do a documentary about Ra.  Called “Cave Digger”, the film ended up winning an academy award!

Let us know your reaction to this story of peaceful man who’s purpose was a dedication to his craft.  I can guarantee that you are about to view something you have never seen before.

An Awesome Trippy Halloween Makeup Tutorial

image via – youtube.com

For as long as humans have walked this Earth they have been painting their faces. The reasons for doing so are as varied as the designs and colors people use to adorn themselves. Some did it to protect their skin from the sun, wind, insects, and predators while other cultures use body paints in parts of their rituals and ceremonies. These days most people paint their faces for fun and it usually involves a costume, party, or special occasion like Halloween.

Young children love getting cute, simple designs painted on their cheeks at fairs and birthday parties and we all know at least one adult who goes all out on October 31st. Even if you don’t have any reason to paint your face, who cares, you can do it anyways and unleash your inner artist!

For a bit of inspiration look no further than this incredible makeup tutorial from Promise Phan. She’s a popular YouTuber and makeup artist who regularly posts videos of all the different looks she recreates on herself. Her work is spot-on and she’s transformed into Angelina Jolie, Bruno Mars, Tinker Bell, even an Avatar, but this look is her trippiest one yet.

In this video she shows us how to re-create a look that can best be described as visually and mentally confusing! She draws three extra eyes on her face, one in the center and one on each side, and when she’s all done it turns out looking wildly insane. This look is seriously neat and interesting to look at, but not for too long because it might make you feel kind of dizzy! If you can re-create this come Halloween time, you’ll definitely stand out and turn heads.

While it certainly looks hard to recreate, it can be done. As long as you take your time and possess some basic drawing skills you should be able to pull it off. If not, ask an artistic friend to draw it on for you because it’s always easier to have someone else with a steady hand for this type of thing.

If you do decide to try it alone Promise recommends that you focus on making the eyes match your own as closely as you possibly can. The lips and noses are easier and more forgiving since they’re less exact and done by highlighting and shading.

If you have a steady hand and listen to her direction carefully you can pull off this dizzying look… and also freak a lot of unsuspecting people out!

Six Signs You Are An Old Soul and Aren’t Aware of It:

images via – shutterstock.com

There are many people in our lives who are old souls, you may even be one of them. They are wise beyond what their physical appearance or actual age let on and their innate knowledge has given them a very developed understanding of the world. They are often quieter, preferring to observe and learn from a distance, while internalizing the lessons and all of the experiences they go through in life. They tend to be empaths and are very sensitive to the energies of other people in their life…

Old souls radiate a certain frequency that is peaceful and stable, they are naturally calming to be around. Many believe that they have acquired their wisdom from the past lives they’ve led and that through this they’ve been gifted with an enlightened view of the complex world we live in.

As it follows, old souls both experience and see things differently and this sets them apart from what everyone else goes through. In turn, they also do things differently and here are some of the ways in which this shows:

1. Old souls travel their own path through life:
They are not followers in any sense of the word and never do what may be expected of them. The typical goals and materialistic inclinations of life are of no interest to them. Instead of success and power, they are after self-realizations and happiness. That’s why they’re often more connected, spiritual, and grounded.

2. Old souls have only a few true lifelong friends:
They often have difficulty connecting with people around their age because they aren’t interested in many of the things those people do or talk about. Rather, they gravitate towards a select few friends who are able to truly understand them and their intense nature. They don’t waste their time getting to know people that they just cannot relate to and it can be said that old souls look for friends whom they see as kindred souls.

3. Old souls have an unquenchable thirst for learning:
Their passion for all things intellectual and informative is clear from the get-go. They love critical thinking and any experiences they go through they will examine in depth to extract important life lessons from them. For an old soul, knowledge brings happiness and power. Having their thoughts challenged is what they live for.

4. Old souls adjust to new situations and surroundings with ease:
They don’t like to stand out or make a scene and prefer to hang back and observe. While they aren’t anti-social per se, they do view themselves as a sort of misunderstood social outcast. Their natural curiosity leads them to ask many questions and from this deeper conversations follow. However, if talk turns idle or superficial, they immediately lose interest. If they’re unable to steer it back to more meaningful topics, they will simply end it abruptly and move on.

5. Old souls look beyond the mundane and see the bigger picture:
They filter out the basic everyday details that tend to cloud the thoughts and minds of everyone else. Their vision is clear and uncompromised by material things or selfish vanity, which they see as senseless and unproductive. Instead of being focused on the here and now, they look right past it, way down the line into the future. Thinking far ahead about all of the possibilities, or the consequences of ones actions, is what gives them a wider perspective and understanding of the world beyond the present.

6. Old souls are spiritual:
This doesn’t mean they are religious devotees, or even a part of any organized religion. Instead, they are more in tune with a variety of ancient rituals and traditions which by practicing brings them happiness. Old souls are always seeking enlightenment through knowledge, and spirituality both encompasses and fulfills a major part of this.

Are you and old soul?

Every Time This Spoiled Bunny’s Human Stops Petting He Throws The Funniest Hissy Fit:

image via – facebook.com

Some animals know exactly what they want and oftentimes they enjoy receiving a nice, gentle, relaxing hand massage from their human companions. It’s no secret that many of our furry pets love to be pet, which may be why we call them “pets” in the first place. Or maybe it’s the other way around, and we call it petting because they are our pets. Whatever the case may be, lots of animals simply love being stroked and scratched. They usually have a sweet spot where they especially like being rubbed. For cats it seems to be around the cheeks, dogs like their ears and back scratched, and then there are some whose sweet spot is everywhere and anywhere.

The little bunny in this video seems to fall in the latter category. From the looks of it he likes being pet all over, especially down his backside. The man in the video gently strokes his ears, nose, cheekbones, temples, head, and back, while the bunny twitches his nose and sits with a content expression on his face, his body completely relaxed and at ease.

When the man stops petting him the bunny is clearly not happy about it. He stamps his furry little paws and lets out adorable growling sounds in protest. It might just be the cutest behavior I’ve ever seen a rabbit do! At one point the furry little guy searches for more pet-pets by crawling under the man’s hand, urging him to resume the mini-massage that he so rudely ended. This bunny knows what he wants and he’s basically telling the man through his grunts, growls, and foot thumping that he is not pleased the cuddle session ended!

Contrary to popular belief, lots of rabbits love being pet and shown affection. The areas they most enjoy being pet is on their head and down their backside. Many often like their dewlap, the roll of skin underneath their chin, scratched and rubbed, but some don’t like this at all. The bunny will let you know whether or not it’s enjoying the attention. When they purr, chatter their teeth, flop over, and close their eyes it means they like it and if you stop and they poke your hand with their head it means “don’t stop, keep petting!”

Rabbits are very expressive, you just have to know how to read them, and over time you become familiar and accustomed to an individual one’s behavior. Like every other pet, they have their own distinct personalities!

The adorable bunny in this video has certainly bonded with his human friend as he feels comfortable telling the man what to do. The little cutie looks so happy being pet and snuggled in his blanket, and if that can’t put a smile on your face then I don’t know what will. Enjoy this hysterical video

If you found this interesting keep reading to find out The Signs You Have Had Past Lives and Been Reincarnated Numerous Times:

To be reincarnated means to be reborn again. At its most basic core, reincarnation is the belief that after a person dies their soul continues on and starts life over once again. As time marches on, so do our spirits and we will all end up leading a number of new lives in completely different bodies. This all ties in with the constant cycle of life, death, and rebirth that’s all around us and which the universe is forever engaged in. Each time our soul passes on it evolves and becomes wiser, more mature, knowledgeable, and spiritually connected to the universe. As such, people have lived many past lives and they will go on to have many future ones.

If you’ve ever noticed how some people just appear to be old souls, then you are recognizing the energy from their past lives manifesting in their present one. Many people even claim that they either know, feel, or can sense their past life identities in their current lives. They may have memories of the people and events or the places which were associated with who they used to be. Others are simply wise beyond their years and are in tune with whatever life sends their way.

Regardless of whether you can sense or feel your soul’s past or not, we are all a lot older than we’d like to admit! Many of us have died and been re-born again hundreds or thousands of times. It’s the complex interactions between all of our soul’s past lives and experiences that is what forms the deepest levels of our existence. If you believe that you have been reincarnated many times then you will have experienced many of the signs the accompanying video goes over. Six of them are covered in greater detail and they all point towards a person having an old soul:

1. You have the natural gift of foresight:
If you always seem to find yourself sensing and knowing what is going to happen ahead of time then your level of foresight is sharp. Many people have instinctual feelings, which may even be felt physically, dreams, and other visions about what is to come. This is what’s known as precognition and it signifies that ones soul had developed and matured.

2. You can relate to how others are feeling:
Not only are you affected by how other people around you are feeling, you also take on those same emotions. Being empathetic signifies a deep connection with the universe at large and when you have lived many lives it becomes easy for you to plug into other peoples energy.

3. You have a powerfully accurate sense of yourself:
Those of us who are evenly balanced and conscious of our mind, body, and soul have developed this deep sense of self-intuition over many lifetimes. When you’re able to look inside and reach not only your consciousness but also your subconscious, or what’s hidden under the surface and is not so obvious, then you have successfully honed your soul’s connection with your real self.

4. You feel an attraction and kind of kinship for a particular era, place, or civilization:
When you are drawn to a certain culture or time period and you don’t quite know why you are so attracted to it, you just are, it’s your past life influencing your current one. Many people believe that having an inexplicable attraction and feeling of connection to times, places, cultures, societies, and environments is something that gets carried over and remains with your soul from a past life.

5. You have the same dream over and over again:
Recurring dreams are believed to signify recollections of memories from your past lives. These types of dreams are often realistic and life-like, extremely vivid, and oddly familiar in all respects. They stick in your mind well after you have woken up and you can both see and recall minute details from them in your mind’s eye even years later. That’s because at one point those dreams may have been a reality and you lived them in another past life.

6. You oftentimes get a sense of Déjà Vu:
That feeling you get when you sense that you’ve seen or experienced something that you’re currently in the midst of doing before is quite strange. Déjà vu is inevitable and uncontrollable. It always pops up suddenly and we can never prepare ourselves or expect it. It’s believed that déjà vu is connected to our past life experiences and the more past lives you’ve led, the more instances of déjà vu you’re likely to have.

Can you remember any of your past lives? Do you think you have been reincarnated?

A Cinnamon Gardening Life Hack Everyone Should Know

image via – youtube.com

A little sprinkle of cinnamon has the ability to make all sorts of things taste better. The aromatic spice has long been used as a seasoning and flavor additive for foods and drinks, even the Romans added cinnamon to bitter wines to improve their taste profiles. Today it’s widely used in teas and alcoholic beverages, like the immensely popular and widely appealing Fireball whiskey. However, there are many other non-food related ways in which the power of cinnamon can be harnessed.

One such way is in the garden, or more specifically, when starting your indoor seedlings. A common problem that arises after young, newly planted seeds sprout is that a nasty fungus may develop alongside with them. The fungus can result in a condition called ‘damping off’ disease which is harmful to vulnerable seedlings because it can greatly weaken or kill them.

If you have ever seen a white, fuzzy, cottony, or mold-like substance growing around the plants and on their stems, it’s likely this unwanted pathogen. The fungus thrives in warm humid environments and that, in combination with using a starting mix that isn’t sterilize, can lead to your plants succumbing to damping off disease.

To combat the common issue, reach into your spice cabinet and take out the powdered cinnamon. Simply sprinkle a little bit of the aromatic spice onto the soil around the plants and it will work to protect your seedlings. Don’t over saturate the area, just a pinch will do, and if you get some on the leaves that’s fine. An alternative way that some gardeners also use is to add in the cinnamon when mixing up the potting soil.

However, since the fungus grows on the surface and plant stems, it works best to just sprinkle it on the top layer of soil. Cinnamon is used because it has anti-fungal properties which fight and protect against fungus from forming. At the same time, it doesn’t harm the delicate plants, and so it’s an ideal, effective, and all-natural way to help your seedlings grow.

For many people, the time is now to begin planting most vegetable seedlings. It’s not too late to try using some cinnamon on them and if you haven’t started yours yet, you better hurry before it’s too late, or you’ll have to buy them at a nursery!

Every Body Part Is In The Palm Of Your Hand – Press The Points For Wherever You Have Pain!

image via – Shutterstock.com

Western medicine has made many wonderful advances to deal with disease.  However chronic pain or discomfort in varying parts of our body have not been satisfactorily addressed.  Alternative medicine can often be lightyears ahead of western medicine when it comes to relieving pain.

Although a combination of both Western and alternative medicine, is probably the most sensible route overall, it is worth looking at the benefits of an alternative form of pain resolution, such as reflexology. The principles of reflexology have led to the idea of finding the pressure points within the palm of your hand that are connected to the part of the body causing you pain.

By pressing the thumb point into the corresponding part of the hand for 5 seconds, releasing for 3 seconds, pressing again and repeating this cycle for several minutes, several times a day you will get results.  This methodology as well as others are demonstrated in this video.

In the video you are about to watch, Dr. Oz’s guest is a reflexologist who explains that both the hands and feet can be seen as a microcosm of our entire body.  Five audience members come to the stage to explain what part of their body is causing them chronic discomfort or pain.

For each malady, the reflexologist explains which part of the palm is connected to the body part involved.  She then demonstrates how using one hand, different forms of pressing or massaging of a particular part of the palm of the other hand will, over time, alleviate the pain experienced.

The audience members in this video suffered from: (1) Constipation and bloating (2) Insomnia and exhaustion (3) Sinus congestion (4) Upper back pain (5) Low libido.  The reflexologist showed them how to work on their own palms to alleviate their pain or problem.

She explained what sensations they would experience as they applied pressure and massage, that would signal that they were working in the correct area.  Her explanations were fascinating and easy to follow.  After watching this I will try a few of the methods demonstrated for things that I need relief from.

Let us know what you think about reflexology after watching the video.  Have you ever tried it and had success?  Will you give it a try?
