  10. Re: To Beat the Heat, Phoenix Paints Its Streets Gray

    What took them so long? I've read other experiments where roads are painted white to reflect rather than absorb heat. I don't pretend to be a scientist but this would appear to be pure logic. Recent...
  11. Re: Probiotics May Not Do Much For Vaginal Health

    This is the first I've heard that probiotics have any effect on vaginal flora, so it surprises me that anyone even tried… And then reported a failure. Perhaps the point is to discourage others from...

    Vacuum bag sealers have been around for a long time. My son and DIL gave me one when they upgraded to a newer better version. They are DINKs so when they buy items in bulk, say nuts or rice or dried...
