It's not your Grandma's Root Beer Float

By Inmyredhead, published on Sep 2, 2013

It's not rocket confectionery. In fact it's a flavor combination just as old fashioned as the original Root Beer Float it's self. But the version I've been addicted to this summer is much more crisp and refreshing.

This summer mix up your ice cream beverage with a twist. Try an Orange Creamscicle Float. Instead of Root Beer use Crush brand Orange soda. Or Sunkist. But not Fanta. Unless you like a nice metallic taste with your float. Sorry Fanta. I'm just sayin'.

But a nice true Orange soda with a creamy Vanilla ice cream is a SIMPLE yet satisfying new kind of treat. Mmmmm....... (more)

Not Sure If Julia Child Would Ever Do This, But...

By Inmyredhead, published on Aug 4, 2013

I've hesitated to share this next tip... but every time I use it myself I think about how I really need to share this tip! My hesitation comes purely from an inferiority complex when it comes to my cooking. I would expect that many readers cook much better and probably already know any tip I could possibly offer. But this is for the young wives and those who have never felt confident in experimenting.

As a child I was never all that interested in cooking and learning how Momma made this or Grandma made that. Which probably comes from the fact that I never ate anything my Grandma made... (more)

Step Light...

By Inmyredhead, published on Jul 6, 2013

Now now, Men... Don't go running for the hills. I mean, I don't really expect a guy to try using menstrual pads to comfort their feet, but you might want to pay attention just in case.

It's pretty simple really. A dense wad of cotton layered for comfort with built in moisture wicking? I'm just saying. Try it, you might like it.

This tip comes from a co-worker who has adopted this little idea for her own comfy tootsies. She was watching TV one day and someone said something about tired feet and how 'everybody' has to deal with it. One of the ladies on TV had said, 'Oh not me. I've... (more)

Chill out, Dude.

By Inmyredhead, published on Jun 29, 2013

Some people love to see the sun come out. And the hotter it beats down the more they revel in it. They say things like, 'Oh I can't wait until summer!"

These people are nuts. And though I myself may have my own piece of crazy town, I am not one of these people. For me, anything over 80 degrees might as well be 100. I find a 'nice' sunny hot day particularly distressing.

Maybe the people who say crazy things like,' I love summer' have excellent air conditioning and small houses or an unlimited bank account to pay their electric bill. I remember back a few years ago when we DID... (more)

A Mayo Clinic of a Different Kind

By Inmyredhead, published on Jun 21, 2013

You have probably heard for years how amazing mayonaise can be to condition beat up hair. I myself have never tried it... on my hair. So I can't vouche for the voracity of that tidbit, but I can tell you that mayonaise does indeed have amazing conditioning qualities when applied to CDs.

That's right. Compact Disks. Those shiny little round wonders of musical enjoyment and one of Americas favorite condiments.

As I write this I realize the age of compact disks, all beit ever so slowly, is dying out as a new age of MP3s takes hold. All the more reason to revive the ones you have.... (more)

Take Note...

By Inmyredhead, published on Jun 16, 2013

Perhaps with me it's just an age issue, but at some point, if you are doing it right, you won't know which password is for what site. It is good advice to change your passwords on a regular basis and to not use the same one for all your sites, but then it's easy to lose track of which one is for what. Often times signing up with a popular program requires that you open a new email account with that programs chosen mail server. Or you may choose to have a separate email for different uses. Whatever the case may be, it can be a BAD idea to use the SAME password for a number of programs. So if... (more)

Batteries to go... and go and go and go and go and...

By Inmyredhead, published on Jun 8, 2013

Today's households seem to require more battery power than the Tesla factory. Keeping up with the demand of all our electronic conveniences can become expensive and leave a heap of toxic waste. From toys that keep the little ones busy to toys that keep adults excited- like Billy The Talking Bass ( what did you think I meant?) to necessary tools- like remote controls; these little wonders can be in high demand.

If you are willing to shell out the money up front for rechargeable batteries you would see great long term savings. But rechargable batteries do require an initial investment... (more)

Eggstend Your Egg Supply

By Inmyredhead, published on Jun 1, 2013

We've all been brought up to carefully respect the 'sell by' date on everything we buy. And most of us have been conditioned to view eggs as too fragile and scarey of a food to even consider pushing the limit. But the important thing here to note is the difference between, 'Sell by' and 'Use by'. Most eggs are marked with a sell by date, not a 'use by' date. It is fairly widely accepted to say that a carton of eggs will last 3 to 4 weeks beyond the sell by date... if properly stored. What is properly stored? Simply stated, if you keep them at a consistent temperature- and best- on the colder... (more)

Is There A Race To Save Racism?

By Inmyredhead, published on May 10, 2013

The year is TwoThousandThirteen. Our president is named Barak Hussein Obama, and he is black. At least that is, if you were to ask almost anyone, that would be their answer. Technically they would be incorrect, but this commentary isn't about the validity of a man made up of 50% caucasion, 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro calling himself 'black'. (But if everyone insists on reveling in the idea of a black president... I will gladly indulge the concept.)

It is instead, about the fact that we can have a 'black' president in this country and yet so many of our own citizens cling to... (more)

Treasures

By Inmyredhead, published on Mar 2, 2013

Sometimes I write of my saddest days.

Sometimes I write of hurtful ways.

Sometimes I write of desperation and pain.

And sometimes I write of loving in the rain.

But today, I write of simple pleasures.

Today I write to share a glimpse of my treasures.

Kisses in the air and touches so gentle and fair.

The things I hold dearest in my heart, the things in which he takes part.

Minutes and hours, day after day. Conversations gone long and sometimes astray.

The simplest of things too abstract to explain. The talent of perfect intimacy.... (more)
